While this weekend’s flirtation with freezing cold (in this Texas’ girl’s opinion) lower 40-somethings weather in Dallas was rather brief, there’s one thing certain…Winter is near! While my hair is reaping all of the benefits from the drier weather (so long humidity!), I can already see the not-so-fun effects its having on my skin. Drier, colder weather means dry, itchy skin, and that mean it’s time to implement some extra moisturization your skincare regime. That’s why I knew it would be the perfect time to introduce you to a skincare brand me (and my skin!) are absolutely loving:  Probulin’s amazing new probiotic skin therapy line!

Happy Fri-YAY friends!! As promised in this post, today I’m finally taking on the latest and greatest in this year’s denim trends…mom jeans! As I mentioned yesterday, I remember seeing my mother in early 90’s photos and thinking to myself “I will never wear jeans like that,” and yet here I am. So go do a little closet search in your momma’s closet (or just purchase this under $100 pair!) and read up on how to wear mom jeans in the 21st century.

There are certain years in fashion that are mega milestones as far as new trends are concerned, and while I’m no professional fashion forecaster (yes, that’s an actual job and one that was definitely up there on my dream job list), I think it’s safe to say that this year, 2017, is one of them. When trends take a major shift in everyday staples like denim (hello, mom jeans I swore I’d never wear) and footwear (mules, flats, and kitten heels have replaced the mega-high heels of yesterday, which I’m not mad about), you know there’s a movement happening in the world of fashion. That’s why I thought it would be the perfect time to start a new series on the blog, Trend to Try, where I take my spin on a new trend or must-have item, (and I’ll go ahead and apologize for the un-clever name, but SEO ya know?!)

For my first post, I’m styling a trend that’s giving me major fifth grade, late nineties Limited Too-circa deja vu…the mega ruffle pant. Click on the read more button below to get the full scoop on this ruffle pants outfit featuring the most darling, daring red cropped ruffle cigarette pants.

Give Yourself a Lyft This Holiday Season

There are certain inventions in the modern world that I personally have a hard time remembering how we ever dealt without. One of the first that comes to mind is Lyft, a phone app that makes finding a ride safe, easy and super convenient! It was only a few years ago (okay maybe like 7 or 8, but it seems like yesterday!) that we had to rely on physically hailing a cab to get a safe ride after a night out (which totally works in bustling cities like NYC, but is a liiiittle more difficult to get in a city like Dallas). With all of the holiday parties and events coming up, I thought it would be the perfect time to partner up with my friends at Lyft to talk about how they can make your holiday season a little more effortless.

If you follow me on instagram, you might have caught a glimpse of some of the breathtaking scenery and adventure Cole and I experienced just a few weeks ago on our Alaskan cruise with Princess Cruises. The photos hardly do the trip justice because it was truly the most breathtaking, majestic trip either of us have ever been on, but I’m going to be sharing them (and some of my first-ever travel video footage!) anyway in a series of several posts here on the blog. 😉

To start, I’m sharing a peek at the gorgeous ship that we called home through the seven day Alaskan cruise, the Ruby Princess, along with an example of a nautical-inspired cruise ship outfit idea that’s perfect for your days at sea.
