Fall Outfit Inspiration

It's beginning to look a lot like, Thanksgiving! 

Is everyone as excited as I am for this week of family time & turkey time?
(Can't forget about those cute Fall outfits as well!)

When it comes to Fall, I love a good pair of comfy leggings topped with a beautiful long blouse to dress up an outfit. 

This week at The Carriage House Day Spa, they recently received stunning Fall blouses that you can dress up or dress down for any occasion! Whether you're out running errands on a busy day or catching up on some girl time at Happy Hour - you know a cute blouse always adds that extra sparkle to your day!

Here's a glimpse of the beautiful pieces!

What I love about a long blouse is that you can either pair it with leggings or jeans - whatever you're more comfortable with! Add some knee high boots, a scarf, and your favorite lipstick - & you're ready to take on your day!

 Which one is your favorite? 

I feel like an outfit can completely set the mood for your day! Taking those extra few minutes in the morning to get yourself together will guarantee you a wonderful day :) 

There's plenty of more beautiful pieces at the Spa, you'll HAVE to stop by to view them! 

I hope you enjoyed this post! I'll see you in my next one!

Tootsie Roll Gel Manciure

Happy Fall Y'all

Lately, I have been LOVING this very chilly weather! When you live in Texas, any chilly weather makes me happy! 

Fall for me = Pumpkin Spice, Sweaters, Cardigans, Scarfs, Boots, Leggings, and my most favorite, Beautiful Dark Gel Manicures!

This week at The Carriage House Day Spa we went for...Tootsie Roll!
(props to another very unique and cute name for a polish!)

 Tootsie Roll is a beautiful dark Burgundy shade. It can even go for a dark chocolate color when you're indoors! Exactly what I wanted when I told Rosie "I want something dark & perfect for Thanksgiving!" And Bam! This shade was the winner! 

Are you loving this Vintage clutch as much as I do ?!

There's just something about a dark manicure that gets me extra excited for the Holidays!
I can't believe Thanksgiving is NEXT THURSDAY! How in the world are we pretty much done with this year?!? 

So, what's your favorite shade for Fall?
Are you into the nudes or the darker shades for your nails?

Here's a little glimpse of my very comfy booties! Perfect to dress up any outfit of the day!

Mini Outfits of The Day!

Well, hello lovelies! 
Style. Ah, I love dressing up. There's just something about waking up, staring at your closet and deciding how YOU want to feel for that day! Casual? Dressed up? Comfy? Whatever look you decide on, it can either make you feel like you're ready to conquer your day or it can make you feel like a zombie ready to jump back into bed! My best fashion advice: Dress how you want to feel.

When you look good, you FEEL good. You have this burst of confidence and it shines through your smile! It has to be the best feeling in the world! We've ALL had those days: you get a little dolled up & you're feeling great. And then we have those days where we throw on anything quickly, and we're feeling as if we look like death! 

My Grandma always told me: Never leave your house without your hair, makeup, and nails done! 

A couple of days ago this was the look of the night for dinner.
Sleek ponytail, statement necklace, long black dress, and wooden heels. 

(p.s. I LOVE FALL colors!) 

Eyes: Lorac Pro Palette: Silver to highlight the inner eyelids, Jade in the outer lid, and Cocoa and Black to blend it all out. 
Lips: Omg, AMAZING lip combo, Drug Store products: Loreal JLO's Nude 370 & top it off with Loreal Nude Ballet. I wish I would have taken a more detailed photo of the lips, but trust me, it's a beautiful combo! 

Necklace: Forever21 


I've been addicted to the Lorac Pro Palette, it has been my go to for Fall looks. It's beautiful. 
I would highly recommend it! 

Casual Day Out
This was my casual outfit of the day for running errands with my husband! 
You can't go wrong with a pair of skinny jeans (that I rolled up for a capris look) and comfy flats!


Those flats pictured above are probably the most comfortable flats I have - Vera Wang does it again. And, the best part - I got them at a bargain price at Kohl's! (winning!) 

Don't get me wrong - there are days (many days might I add) that you'll find me at home in pajama pants, the messiest bun in the world, and a bag of flaming hot cheetos on the couch watching Lifetime movies. (If you know me, you know this is 100% accurate) 

But you can't beat that feeling of getting dressed up for a brand new day! :)

I'm excited to start posting more 'Outfits of The Day' posts~

New to my blog? Link your blog down below, I'd love to check it out.

Until next time lovelies,

Gel Manicure of The Week!

Gel Manicure of The Week

Because manicures make every woman happy! 
This week at The Carriage House Day Spa we went for this GORGEOUS Fall Shade 'Whose Cider Are You On' I love love love unique polish names, and I always wonder who is the lucky person that gets to name all these colors! 

I am still SO very impressed with the Gel Manicure process and how long it lasts on your nails. A good 2 whole weeks with NO CHIPPING AT ALL. And if you are a nail polish junkie like myself, a polish that lasts up to two weeks is similar to winning a shopping spree to your favorite store. It's that awesome.

A few "did you know" facts about Gel Manicures.. 

  1. Your Gel Manicure is dry in only 30 seconds under the LED light --- Yup, I said that !
  2. No chipping & just as shiny as the first day - 14 days later. --- You better believe it!
  3. Your Gel Manicure is a coat of colored "gel" that looks like a polish.
  4. To take off your gel manicure you need to soak your nails in acetone so it's easier to come off, it's magic!

- it's amazing. period.

If you're interested in trying out the famous Gel Manicure, book your appointments at The Carriage House Day Spa at (956)544-4111. Make sure to check out the The Carriage House Day Spa Facebook as well, for plenty of updates & fun promotions! 

What are some of your favorite Fall shades?

Until next time, stay fabuloussss!
