Palomino: Rustic European Cusine

I love a good dinner out, but then again who doesn't? Needless to say I'm always thrilled when I can partner with local places to feature their dinning menu on the blog (truly is my favorite part of blogging besides styling, yeah I'm a total foodie at heart!). Now truth be told if it was up to Brain that's what I would be blogging about, delicious food and charming restaurants!! Well what's best is when we can combine work with pleasure and call our dinner out an actual date! Last Friday we went to Palomino an upscale italian chain that serves heavenly thin-crust pizzas and other enticing Italiano style dishes!! Palomino is located in the heart of downtown Indy in a busy corner. They have such an authentic feel and a lovely setting, one that makes…

Le Cirque du Soleil

Last week was my bff's b-day. Her plans? Go to cirque du soleil...my reaction? Yessss please!! 🙃 We had a great time at the show and I had to snap a few pics inside the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The show we saw was Toruk , based on James Cameron's Avatar. I wish I could post videos but I don't want to get in trouble with copyrights!! So here's a few images of the show and us!! Time with friends and family is so precious and so scarce now-a-days for me that I truly love every little opportunity I have to catch up! Afterwards we headed to a pub in town and finished the celebration with everyone else  🎉 For my look I went real casual. Jeans, hi-tops and a rain jacket since it was sprinkleing! Kris also…

Indianapolis Colts + Vardagen

Hey guys, how's it all holding up in this awesome wave of warmth we got here in Indy?! I'm thrilled!! This winter reminds me of winters back home, cold at night and warmer during the day...except we get more sunshine in Sampa...and I run on sunshine, but hey I'm happy to not be freezing under snow by now! So the other day my friend and awesome photographer Kelly and I set out to have some pics taken and I couldn't be happier with the results. The weather was perfect for pics and the temps helped, along of course with some good planning before hand ;) Holiday mode full on, I chose to start with Vardagen 's Knights of the Round City Tee. This whole series will be featuring their more than cool super creative t-shirts, that…

Sweater Weather + Girl Talk (but hey guys you are welcomed too!!)

Looking forward to fall doesn't mean I wished for an early winter day...boy that's what it felt like last Friday and Saturday! Come on now give us sunshine and cool, crisp air Lord. I know we all have our requests but who doesn't like sunshine and cool crisp air, huh?! Hehehe If you have been following the blog and/or my instagram for a while you know I'm trying to make more sustainable choices as far as my fashion picks and the food we eat at home in general, not to mention I've made my faith very much public here as well. Please understand I'm not trying to brainwash anyone or talk you guys into sharing my faith, or wearing only brands that are fair trade and sustainable, or eating organic only (that would be exhausting!).…
