colorful cooking

Trying to eat clean earlier this week.


Last week I purchased a couple of gold-filled cartilage hoop earrings on Etsy from shopKiiNA. I had been looking for small gold hoop earrings for the longest time and was so happy when discovered her shop on Etsy! Be sure to check out her online shop!

wedding dresses at BHLDN


During the week I ended up stumbling upon BHLDN, so I went inside just to look around – gorgeous wedding dresses. Definitely my style.

baked potato from Pappa's BBQ

Probably not the best idea, but I had a loaded baked potato from Pappa’s BBQ for dinner earlier this week. Couldn’t get over how big it was, I think I was only able to eat about half of it.

District 7 Grill EaDo

chicken penne and spinach salad

On Friday night we ate at District 7 Grill in EaDo. They are only open for dinner Wednesday-Friday. I had the Chicken Penne and Spinach Salad and my boyfriend had the Seared Tuna Burger – both were delicious. Hoping they are going to be open on the weekends soon!

On Saturday we went to the Sundance Cinemas to watch Chef – highly recommend it if you are looking for a good film to watch. After the movie we wandered around downtown for a little before heading to Rice University to watch a basketball tournament.

Saturday night we had dinner at benjy’s. I had the Crunchy Chicken – the chicken, potatoes and string beans all had such good flavor. However, we were a little disappointed because the food was good, but the service wasn’t that great.

Lunch at Adair Kitchen – Southwest Chicken Salad, Think Pink Juice and Iced Vanilla Latte. YUM.

#fittingroomselfie Needed to pick up some makeup from Macy’s, so that meant a trip to the Galleria.


Nars lip gloss

New in: lip gloss by Nars and Hourglass.

dinner at Huynh

Found another good Vietnamese restaurant in EaDo, called Huynh. Definitely check it out if you’re in the area.

sparkling grapefruit limonade

Ever since I went to Japan last October, I’ve been obsessed with grapefruit juice. My obsession continues, because I found this at Phoenicia earlier in the week.

Original Ninfa's

Had an early dinner at The Original Ninfa’s this past Friday. Hands down, the best Mexican food I’ve had in Houston so far.

Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA

We recently discovered and signed up at the Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA. We were looking for a reasonably priced gym in the area, and luckily found this place. I absolutely LOVE it! There are plenty of machines and it’s never too crowded, even during prime hours. Not to mention that they offer tons of workout classes too!

Minuti vanilla latte

After our morning workout yesterday, we stopped for some coffee at the Minuti Coffee in downtown, where I got my favorite Vanilla Latte Shakerato.

How cute is the interior of this Minuti?


Excuse the face – the sun was in my eyes. Yesterday we went to the Sundance Cinemas for the first time to see The Grand Budapest Hotel. It was hilarious and clever, just as I expected. Really love that theater too! After the movie we just wondered around a little bit and people watched because there were a couple of events going on in the area. Love exploring new places, especially when the weather is nice!
