I know its been a while since I have posted on TheGlamGalsGuide so please forgive me! Now that we are back in the US I will be back on my normal posting schedule (2-3 blog posts a week!). This week I will be working on posting a day by day itinerary of what we did in Italy. Including more pictures and tips on places to see, where to eat, and where to stay! If you have any specific questions or things you would like me to include in the post please send them my way.
I know the Nordstrom Sale has been in full force so I wanted to bring you my curated picks for the sale and items I will be purchasing, see a sneak peak below! Also if you scroll over the “Shop” tab on my main menu click on “Nordstrom Sale” for a full list of my picks. If you are a Nordstrom card holder you can shop the on sale items now, if not no worries it opens up to everyone on July 21st, mark your calendar!
I am so excitied because one of my favorite sales of the year is now live! I’ve been scouring the Shopbop site to bring you the best deals, most everything I am linking below is under $100. I have been stocking up on gifts, wedding attire, and vacation essentials. No matter what you are looking for right now is the perfect time to invest in summers best items since the entire site is 20%-25% off with code “EVENT17”. Sale ends 4/14 but shop early before all the best items sell out.
I know that’s the worst 3 words to hear right? I hope everyone had a great weekend, Houston has been spoiled rotten the past couple weekends with having the most beautiful weather (trust be it will not last long! #hellohumidity).

The weekend is t-minus 3 days away, am I the only one counting down the hours as well? I am so excited to share this dress with you from BailyBlueClothing! I loved partnering with them for this shoot because this dress is everything! I dressed it up for drinks on Saturday but also plan on pairing it with flats to wear for work, it works great for either occasion.
This dress will certainly be staying in my wardrobe for every season, its a staple. And the best news of all your first order from BailyBlueClothing is 25% off!
Whether you’re native, new, or just visiting, below is my insiders guide for my favorite spots to hang out in H-town!
Even though I’m from Houston I never really got to experience the whole city for what it is until I moved back after graduating from college. Shortly after college Alex and I moved into the city and since then we have been soaking in every bit that Houston has to offer. I’m sharing some of our favorite places below!
Buffalo Bayou– This is a really unique place to Houston that we really take pride in. While the water most of the time tends to be a shade of brown its really fun to go kayaking, take a walk around the park with your fur babies, or for the athletic type a run! The park is filled with great views of the city and unique art sculptures, on a pretty great day there is not a spot more perfect for a picnic!
The Cistern– This is something you have to see! The Cistern at Buffalo Bayou Park is a former drinking water reservoir built in 1926 for the City of Houston. It closed in 2007 but just recently opened to the public. You can buy tickets for the tour by clicking the above link- trust me it’s beautiful.
Bike riding on The Heights Trail- The Heights is a beautiful historic neighborhood in Houston, there is a trail that runs though it and it makes for a beautiful walk or ride.
Heights Theater– This Concert venue is restored movie theater from the 1900’s and they always have a great line up.
Shopping on 19thStreet– 19th Street is in the Houston heights neighborhood with unique curated shops. This street offers something for everyone, also so many great places to stop for a drink or some food!
I am partnering with SheIn today to bring you some trends that will be huge for Spring, including one of my favorites, ruffles! What I love about SheIn is you can get really cute affordable fashion for any season.
Many items I see at other retailers I find the exact same things at SheIn for a quarter of the price. I wore this top to brunch on Saturday and received so many compliments on it, and it only looks expensive (under $15)!
Shop some of my favorite picks for Spring along with this top below:
If your like me you may or may not have waited until the last minute to pick out something special for your significant other for Valentine’s Day (am I the only one still tempted to say Valentime’s day?).
Don’t sweat it though because I’ve got you covered, I scoured my favorite sites (who ship fast!) to bring you my number one picks! And ladies it never hurts to send your guy some thoughtful (helpful) “hints” on what you may be eyeing for this Valentine’s day.
I also recruited the hubs to make sure my “gift guide” picks for him were approved. They work for Dad too because he’s always special!
If your still searching for that perfect outfit don’t worry I’ve got that covered as well.
Links to all of the above plus more located on the sidebar to the right!
Okay so I’m not going to lie, I have been searching and searching on what to get Alex this Valentine’s day and had been coming up BLANK for weeks. If your significant other is anything like mine the struggle is real when it comes to gift giving.
But when JORD Wood watches contacted me about a collaboration I knew I had found the perfect present!
The watch I chose for Alex is part of the Frankie series the color is Zebrawood and Navy. This watch features sapphire crystal glass (so cool!), natural Zebrawood, and is splash proof! I love this watch because of the beautiful design and unique detail. Even better it arrived in the perfect gift packaging, a lovely wooden box with magnetic closing features, and a cleaning cloth.
Needless to say Alex loved the watch! I caved in and gave it to him a little early this year in exchange for him being my hand model 🙂
I would love to give you all the opportunity to gift a JORD watch yourself so I have teamed up with JORD Wood Watches for a giveaway! You can choose the design and color that fits your significant other or your style best (and yes ladies, they carry watches for us as well!). The best part about the giveaway is you win an E-gift card worth $25.00 just for entering the contest!
Enter here! Winner will receive a $100.00 E-Gift Card to use to their purchase of a JORD Watch, all other entries will receive a $25.oo E- Gift Card once contest ends.
The contest will close February 5th at 11:59pm. The $100 and $25 Gift Codes will expire April 30th, 2017.
Best of luck!
