“Oxygen. We need it for life, and our skin needs it to be its best.”
“After the age of 25, the skin’s normal oxygen supply decreases and skin loses up to 65% of its moisture content, resulting in a tired, dull complexion. We’ll put that life-giving oxygen back into your skin, neutralizing free-radicals, strengthening the immune system against acne-causing bacteria and fighting skin redness, wrinkles and pigmentation. Adding back oxygen also strengthens your existing collagen and elastin, which keep your skin young and dewy.” -Body Brite
When I first met BodyBrite San Antonio owner Crystal Townes I was mesmerized by her upbeat personality and genuine passion for her job. I have learned that it is very difficult for people to be that excited to wake up and go to work, but Crystal is so ready to introduce Americans to BodyBrite. I have to admit that was not very informed on the luxury skin care treatments that they provide, but since visiting BodyBrite I am hooked. As a young woman, I am almost programmed to start stepping up my skincare game as a preventative measure. When the oxygen first touched my skin, it was like a jolt of cool air that was having a field day cleansing my pores. This will not be my last write up about BodyBrite, I plan on sending friends and family and watching their results. For someone who forgets to take their makeup off, will use a bar of soap to wash their face, and loves a 79 cent face masque, I REALLY felt the difference in my skin. The best part about being a BodyBrite fan is that it is an affordable way to really treat yourself, it is $89 bucks to get the Oxygen facial!! If you still aren’t sold on it, go visit the BodyBrite website and see for yourself CLICK HERE-GET PAMPERED and check out the menu below:
Whether you are a regular at the spa or a low maintenance type of gal, it is important for you to at least give your skin a little bit of love. In the end you will be happy that you took the time to try something that really works! Thank you so much to Crystal and the BodyBrite San Antonio team for the wonderful experience. After the Holiday hangover I have I definitely need to schedule my next appointment.

“Don’t ever think you’re too good for anything.”
- Rebecca Minkoff
When my friends at Saks Fifth Avenue San Antonio asked if I would come to meet Rebecca Minkoff, my heart stopped a little. I am not just saying that because she is one of the most famous contemporary designers in the world, but because I am a fan. On the night of the Rebecca Minkoff event I collected my 9th RM bag…yes my 9th freaking one!
Once you can get past the effortlessly beautiful look that Rebecca had going on the other night, you suddenly start to realize that she is a genuinely humble and sweet person. What I found so intriguing about her was her ability to keep cool, even though people were literally freaking out to see her (myself included). When I asked her about how being a mom has changed how she is in business, she simply said “I had to learn how to rely on other people, in order to be a good mom,” I thought that was very honest of her to say. Whatever she is doing is definitely working, not only is her empire blowing up, but her instagram will show you that she is a pretty cool mom! I have to say that after everything I was able to chat with her about, the one thing that really stuck with me was her advice to people starting their careers. While a lot of successful adults might say “follow your dreams,” or “you can do anything you want,” Rebecca said “start from the bottom up and never be too good for anything.” If that doesn’t show you how much of an inspiring woman she is, then I don’t know what will!
After coming down off of my RM high (several days later), I am thrilled to share all of this with you and tell you about my KICK ASS night! Thank you so much to Rebecca Minkoff (Start Shopping Here), her amazing team, and Saks Fifth Avenue San Antonio (Shop More Here)!

“All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I went for a walk
On a winter’s day
I’d be safe and warm
If I was in L.A.
On such a winter’s day”
On a cold and rainy day there isn’t much to do other than wander through the neighborhood shooting photos with Sarah Adams. Obviously I chose to wear a skirt and heeled booties on this particular afternoon stroll. It isn’t until you step outside after a cold rain that the air feels perfect, the crisp coolness is relaxing to me. There is something very charming about being outside under a grey sky and standing on the cold ground, covered in brown leaves.

Yes, it is December and I am wearing a tiny romper, welcome to Texas. I attempted to look “fall ready” by wearing booties and wrapping a flannel around my waist. Anyways, enough about me, lets talk about the Blue Star Arts Complex in San Antonio. When I moved back from Austin I was in need of a place I could eat, sip coffee, work, and have fun…Blue Star is the mecca of those things. Not only is it home to some amazing art galleries but it also houses bars, restaurants, a walking trail along the river, and my favorite Halcyon! I went this week with my gal pals (see two crazies on the Blue Star bike) and after wandering around and eating at Stella Public House, I would say we had a pretty kick ass day. Thank you SA for getting cooler and cooler by the day!

British Fashion is why I love fashion so much, the effortless/raise hell/punk rock meets Tea Time is what really gets me. I’ve ways felt that my strange wardrobe ideas come from my inner British babe, or perhaps it’s because I’ve read one too many Suzy Menkes articles. The British Fashion Awards are my favorite way to see my idols in full force. Take Sienna Miller for example, emerald green dress and rose gold ombré hair?! The best part about British fashion is it is acceptable to wear a Marc Jacobs floor length, jaw dropping gown or a button down piano dress (Poppy is perfect)!

“Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.”
My only advice is to take a day and spend it at an art museum. Walk around, soak it in, and expand your mind…sometimes its the little things that get your wheels spinning.
