WHAT I’M WEARING

GETAWAY STICKS SHOES FROM TSG HOUSTON

Sand Ballet Flats

“GetawaySticks makes the most comfortable heels and flats you will ever walk in. You’ll want to wear them all day long! Owner Dr. Steffie Tomson created a special ‘roam foam’ to save your feet from fatigue, a necessity for every woman.”

WHAT I’M COVETING

Romina Deshilado Dress

WHERE I’M GOING

LAURA RATHE ARTWORK COQUETTE, 2024
Mixed media on hand-sculpted acrylic, 36 x 48 x 9 in

“Celebrating 25 years, Laura Rathe Fine Art manages to remain unmatched when it comes to exhibits and installations. I’m amazed by every new exhibit that launches. Every new exhibit that launches amazes me. I enjoy frequenting the River Oaks District location and I will be having my ‘2024 Meet the Editor Night’ there!”

WHAT I’M EATING

Lemon Olive Oil Cake

“This is the most delicious spring-time cake from one of my favorite recipe sites. The recipe is dead easy and it’s the perfect treat with an afternoon cup of coffee. It’s moist, salty, smooth and delectable!”

WHAT I’M USING

Mavology products from mavology.com

Day & Night Facial Serum Duo

“My skincare routine is important to me and the fact that I can support local while nourishing my skin for an affordable price is a homerun in my book. Mavology’s products never disappoint and always smell amazing.”

WHERE I’M SHOPPING

A Favorite Local Boutique

“If I’m ever in need of an outfit, I head straight to Monkee’s of Houston. I’m always able to find something I love and wear endlessly each season. From accessories to shoes and outfits of all kinds, Monkee’s is reliable and makes me feel confident.”

WHAT I’M GIFTING

Bering's Nest Santorini Olive & Citron Specialty 3-Wick Candle

Nest Santorini Olive & Citron Candle

“This candle seemingly lasts forever, even though I light it almost everyday. The scent never grows old–its refreshing aroma features notes of fresh lemon zest and Mediterranean olive leaf blended with creamy avocado and hints of black pepper.”
