State Fare

You might be thinking of cotton candy, too many screaming children, and broken down ferris wheels with melted ice cream.  That actually might just be a Texas state fare gone wrong, but I'm not talking about that.  I'm talking about State Fare: Houston's newest Texas-inspired comfort food spot located in Gateway Memorial, which is sure to leave you feeling satisfied and as if you've experienced the best food porn of your life.

ThrIVe Drip Spa

Thrive Drip Spa Houston
My usual therapy for a hangover is some gatorade, lots of water, a greasy cheeseburger, and maybe a bloody mary.  What if I told you that you could drive over to I10 and Wirt and get hooked up to a party drip to get you back on your feet?  Would you do it?

The LBB

Black Rebecca Minkoff Purse
REBECCA MINKOFF BAG - NORDSTROM

We all know the LBD.  We probably have five in our closet - Or am I just a hoarder?  But let's not neglect the LBB, which my brain coined as the "little black bag".

The Dunlavy: Keeping it Real

"I wanna swiiiiing from the chandelier".  Seriously, every time I see a photo of The Dunlavy, Sia's lyrics go on auto-play in my brain.  Someone tell me they can relate!

Grocery Guide

My trip to Mexico is creeping up, and I'm doing my best (strugglin') to eat as clean as possible.  My main goal is to prepare as many of my meals at home as possible to not only work on my abs but also on my wallet.  When I do the math, taking myself out to lunch everyday adds up to about $75 during the work week!  That same dollar amount can be put towards fresh groceries to feed a few others too!

The grocery store can go a few different ways.  If I have a list, I know what I need, but that doesn't mean that jar of Nutella isn't begging to be tossed into my shopping cart as I walk past aisle 4.  Yeah, I bought a jar on my last trip to the store and ate straight from it with a spoon.

To prevent impulse purchases and stay on track of what I need, I created this simple, organized grocery check list.  If you're trying to save some coins and meal prep this summer, this guide is for you!  You can print your free grocery guide here.

A disclaimer because I've seen the things that people are compelled to say on the internet: No, I'm not vegan. Yes, I eat meat.  Yes, I also eat bread, wheat, and grains.  I limit dairy to a minimum because I've found that my skin is clearer when I stay away from it.  I do not have any other allergies, and I have zero problems with how my body functions when I consume any of these foods.  This blog is not the place for anyone who attempts to push their diet of choice down anyone else's throat.  I eat it all.

Keep in mind that this list is very basic.  You can swap items according to your lifestyle and taste, but these are my staples to stay in a budget and as lean as possible!

Let me know what your must-have items are when you're at the grocery store!

21 Questions

So, I can't lie.  I feel a little Myspace era/away message circa 2004 doing this tag, but I figured it would be a great way for current and new readers to get to know me a little better!

I've been thinking a lot lately about how it can be easy to get lost in the online "version of ourself".  In a world where the majority of our tasks are done online and we have a profile for ourselves everywhere you look, it's easy to lose your voice.  I could go on for days about how strongly I feel about being the same version of ourself both on and off-line.  I don't want to read your blog, watch your videos, or read your comments online somewhere then meet in-person to find out you're a total witch.  Trust me, it happens all the time.

Houston Bloggers Event at Sugar and Cloth

Sugar and Cloth Houston
Sundays are usually made for coffee, pajamas, and spending all day curled up in bed watching TV, especially in this gloomy Houston weather.  Oh, and occasionally cleaning the house.  But this past Sunday, I was forced to wash my hair, put on an appropriate outfit, and head out for the first Houston Bloggers event held at Sugar and Cloth.

By Kilian

Saks Houston Galleria
Unless you've been hiding under a rock in Houston, you'd know that Saks recently remodeled their entire store and restaurant, and the store now looks like it's been kissed by he angels with open, white walls all around and a gorgeous space.  What better time to view the new store than during Kilian Hennessy's appearance?

I had the opportunity to interview Kilian one-on-one at his beautiful counter in Saks Fifth Avenue in the Houston Galleria.  Head over to MyRedGlasses here to read our full interview.

Casual Fridays

Zara Summer Tops
TOP - ZARA / JEANS - H&M / SHOES - TARGET

TGIF.  My work wardrobe is pretty simple, and I like to rotate basic pieces that I can mix and match.  I love a good pair of jeans, heels, and wearing them with different tops.  These heels from Target are some of my favorites -- I have the black and the nude and get tons of wear and compliments out of them!

Makeup Must-Haves

The best makeup for a natural look
Hi, my name is Cori, and I am a makeup hoarder.

Ok, ok. I'm not that bad, but let's just say I have a ton of makeup and I've tried it all.  I've found some great drugstore products, but I'm also a sucker for a good high-end item as well.  My go-to look is light, glowing, and slightly bronzed.  I don't like heavy foundation and don't own too many dark lips, so you'll love these picks if you're more of a natural gal.
