Suitin’ Up For Spring

Suitin’ Up For Spring

No, this isn’t another swimsuit blog post. This blog post is all about my favorite fashion trend that I can only rock when Texas weather cooperates with me – JUMPSUITS! You might be thinking, “Lydia, I could never rock the jumpsuit”. I know, I know…but you’re WRONG. While it is freakin’ hard to find one that fits just right, I discovered a few places that offer jumpsuits in short, tall and regular sizes. So if these jumpsuits can fit me, they can fit you too!

Goals on Goals: How I’m Goal Setting for 2018

Goals on Goals: How I’m Goal Setting for 2018

This isn’t a post about “how I’m going to get in shape” or “how I’m going to start eating healthy again”. In fact, I’m not really a believer in New Year’s resolutions, but I do believe there is something powerful in a clean slate. It allows us the opportunity to reflect on the past and hit the refresh button on life (which is definitely easier said than done). So in 2018, I decided I would actual set GOALS for myself. I’m not talking resolutions, I’m talking achievable things that I can work towards throughout this year and not feel like a complete failure by day three.

Looking Back on 2017

Looking Back on 2017

With a few hours to spare, I’m finally taking the time to share some of my favorite moments from the past year. 2017 has been a complete whirlwind between work, traveling, weddings, and everything else in between. They say a picture is worth 1000 words (#socheesy), so I’m not going to write any more of them. I recognize this post is totally personal (I gotta do me sometimes), but here is the recap of the past year from my camera roll.

Lydiva’s Holiday Gift Guide Under $50

Lydiva’s Holiday Gift Guide Under $50

Happy Monday, people! LONG TIME, NO BLOG.

If you’re wondering why I have been MIA from the blog, here’s a few reasons: busy season, the holiday season, and busy season. From Thanksgiving until Christmas my life is a little extra crazy absolute insanity between holiday festivities (because I want to take part in all the celebrations) and trying to do all the things I need to do at work (which seems pretty endless at this point, hence the Big 4 term “busy season”). BUT YAY LIFE! The funny thing is, this post was actually per request of my co-workers because…

Carmel-by-the-Sea: California’s Seaside Dream

Carmel-by-the-Sea: California’s Seaside Dream

You’ve probably never even heard of it, but a couple months ago I ventured to a little seaside town in California called Carmel-by-the-Sea. It was actually recommended by my mother (yep, the one who HATES traveling) as a peaceful place to get some R&R. So my friend/co-worker/fellow world traveler decided to take a short adventure to Carmel before making our way to Napa later on that week.

The Booties You Should Be Buying This Fall

The Booties You Should Be Buying This Fall

Am I the only one who giggles at the word “booties” in some contexts!? Probably. Oh well. I’ll embrace that I act like I’m 5 some days.

Well howdy, y’all! I have some GREAT news for you today. FALL IN TEXAS IS FINALLY HERE IN FULL FORCE! I’m talking like…I’ve worn a jacket 5 days in a row now (well at least for part of the day). It’s truly a miracle here in the Lone Star State. And since every girl’s favorite season for fashion is upon us, it’s time for me to share ALL THE BOOTIES you should be buying this fall!
