SUMMER PET CARE TIPS // Longer days, more sunshine and good times are imminent as we begin to welcome in the season that reminds us all to come alive…With all of the good the Summer season brings, Texans know it also means we will soon also usher in triple digit days that necessitate submerging ourselves in various bodies of water daily and being mindful of the warnings that are associated with the dog days of summer. Click the link in our bio to hear from @alphaluxurypetgrooming and @campbowwowpetroplex - along with learn more about and ways to rescue locally.
MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE // Mother’s Day is right around the corner, providing the perfect opportunity to remind those serving in a motherly capacity in our lives how much we appreciate them. While there are many thoughtful ways to express our love and gratitude, for those looking to celebrate with a gift, we’ve rounded up 18 items from scouted stores across West Texas. From a custom home watercolor to an eye-catching Jane Win pendant, these mother’s day presents are sure to inspire your gift-choosing endeavor. Click the link in my bio to check it out.
COVER COLOR // I’m currently brainstorming the perfect cover color for volume 3. This is always a highlight for me when working on TSG, but also one of the most nerve-wracking decisions. WHAT IF I PICK THE WRONG COLOR!?! That’s why I introduced the Cover Color party last year, I need y’all’s help!! Stay tuned for some exciting updates - a party announcement is on the horizon!

SCOUTED // The needlepoint craze is sweeping the globe, and West Texas is now home to the fabulous new store, @fantasticneedlepoint. Kristi, the owner, is not only passionate and knowledgeable but also an incredible teacher! I am thrilled to have found a new hobby that I can enjoy in the comfort of my home, on a plane, while waiting at the doctor’s office, and even in between photoshoots. Don’t miss the chance to visit the store or sign up for one of their classes - you’ll be mastering stitches in no time!
