Park City, Pink Peonies & Fav November OOTDs

Hey there beauties! It has been a very busy past week for me and I am glad I can finally catch y'all up via my weekly photo diary! I love doing these and being able to connect with y'all! Especially after exciting work trips like the one I just came back from! I spent two days in Park City, Utah with my boss. And after getting our work done, we were able to make time for not only a sushi dinner but tubing at Gorgoza Park (tubing park in Park City, Utah). I had not been tubing or skiing since I was a teenager so it definitely reminded me of my childhood on the East Coast. On another note, after I returned from Dallas and put my 'snowbunny' status on hiatus for now...I was able to locate some peonies at my local Whole Foods. So glad they are in season and I plan to enjoy them as long as they last! 

What were you up to after the Thanksgiving holiday? My week was little traveling and working! Babe & I managed to escape on Sunday and take a walk. That was probably my highlight of the weekend! Relaxing and enjoying the fall leaves. 

See y'all next time! Not much to shop this time since I have shared many of these items before! If you have a question about an item (beauty, makeup, etc.), I would be happy to share in the comments! 

P.S. If any of you have ever traveled to the Dominican Republic (more specifically, Punta Cana), could you please share anything that would be helpful to me! My amazing husband surprised me and told me this weekend we will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary in Punta Cana. I am OVER THE MOON and it was just the motivation I need to not be a complete glutton during the holidays! Anyways, if you have any recommendations...please do share with me!

Weekly Photo Diary | Eyebrow Upgrade & Thanksgiving in Arkansas

Hey there beauties! I am back safely in Dallas, having a glass of wine with my honey, tweeting with my loves on Twitter and washing my thermals so I can finish packing for Park City, Utah! I can't believe we just got back from our holiday road trip and I am preparing for to depart for a work trip on Tuesday! I am always whom much is given much is required. 

Let's see! I can begin with my latest beauty known as my eyebrow upgrade. My best friend text me on Monday telling me she had found this new brow girl that I just had to try. Knowing my skin is very sensitive (I almost always break out after threading), my brow hairs are dark blonde and the eyebrow hairs are fine...not to mention, I've never had eyebrows that grew in naturally thick or with a has always been difficult to commit long-term to an eyebrow threading specialist. For years, I have went to the Wink Threading Salon in Uptown but in my last few appointments, I had not been over-the-moon about the shaping and I have broken out terribly. Well, my brow dilemma has been solved by Nikki (check out her Style Seat page here). She is absolutely amazing! She really cares about shaping your brows to provide the best look for your face shape! She filled them in after to show me the areas that she would ideally like to grow in. Very professional all around! And after my appointment, I am happy to report that I did not break out. If you live in the DFW area, definitely check her out. You will not be disappointed. 

Fastforward to Thanksgiving in Arkansas. I literally relaxed the entire trip. I think I only wore regular clothes the day we traveled there and Thanksgiving day. Otherwise, I was in my red polka dot pajamas from J. Crew. I would shower and put them right back on! Ultimate relaxation, which I needed after always being on the go! And also I know that the next few weeks until Christmas vacation will be non-stop for me.
