PIT STOP IN THE NEVADA DESERT

If you follow me or us on Instagram, you'll know that I spent this past Christmas in Los Angeles. While we were there, we surprised my parents with a trip to Vegas, which was the perfect way to spend the holiday. I'll be recapping both trips later, but I just had to share these photos my brother and I took in the middle of the desert on our way there. The scenery on the drive from LA to Las Vegas is gorgeous, and being an east coast girl, it was definitely a sight for soar eyes. 

I was wearing my comfy road trip attire, but I also had on my new favorite leather jacket from Cole Haan. I'm pretty proud of myself for picking a leather jacket that wasn't black - I was drawn to this pink color! First time for everything?

SHOPPING IN HOUSTON: ROUND 1

In the short time I've been living in Houston, I've noticed one awesome thing - there are boutiques everywhere.

I'm not talking about typical mall stores everywhere (even though there are a couple great outdoor shopping centers and a huge mall that has everything imaginable). I'm talking about adorable and independent boutiques with new-to-me designers, both local and not. Imagine stores you'd see in Wicker Park, Chicago and sprinkle them throughout the city. It's a pleasant surprise when I didn't know anything about Houston at all and find all these places I absolutely love.

If you're new to Houston like me or planning to visit, I found five boutiques that are a must-see. From local shops to ones happily growing, women and men's clothing to home decor - my shopping needs are fulfilled in Houston!
