Help for the Curly Girls!

Growing up mixed-ethnicity with a White mom made figuring out how to style our hair more difficult than the average girl.  When we were little girls my sister’s hair was kinky-curly and frizzy, so my mom would try to brush it into submission.  Anyone with curls or frizz knows that the brush is your enemy!  My hair was wavy and…

Happy (70 degrees in February) Weekend

Happy Weekend!  It is going to be 70 degrees in Denver, so find something to do outside.  My version of being “outdoorsy” is walking to Little Man Ice Cream. This weekend I am going wedding dress shopping with one of my favorite people.  I haven’t been to Emma & Grace yet, but I am looking forward to it. I am also…

Food Love: How To Do a Brunch

Recently Marcos and I hosted a brunch with our friends. (You can see the menu in the picture behind Alyce below.) I learned a few lessons about hosting brunch with your husband… if he is cooking (I am pretty darn lucky). You have to ask how you can help…then actually do it.  We didn’t eat for about 45 minutes because…

Weekend Getaways- San Francisco

Marcos is a California boy and when he moved from San Francisco, he left part of his heart there. We go to the bay area several times a year to get our west coast fix.  This fall, we rented this Airbnb in the mission. The mission is our favorite place to stay because you can walk to everything. You walk…

Blanket Scarf

I was gifted two blanket scarfs this past Christmas. One from myself and one from Shelby. The weather outside is turning cold and the temperature at my work is equally frigid. The blanket scarves have been serving their purpose. I basically get to wrap myself  in a cozy blanket all day and have it be socially acceptable, and even stylish! The…

Have a beautiful weekend!

  This weekend we are going to attend the fashion show, art, and culture event at  Artopia at City Hall on Broadway. You can still get tickets! This event makes Denver feel as cool (we know its already  awesome but…) as New York or San Francisco. You can really dress up,no lululemon,  and fit right in. There is art, a fashion…

Our Colorado Wedding (Shannon and Marcos)

We got married at the Chatfield Botanic Gardens in Denver. We were members of the garden so we got a 20% discount on the venue. It was the only venue we looked at and it was perfect because you get to rent the whole space so people could wander around with their wine and feel like they had the space…

Food Love: The Easiest Meal Prep

Quick note: This is not a diet post. It’s my easy, and happens to be healthy (cause why not?) post about how I am figuring out how to prepare meals for the busy week ahead.  I have over-thought my meal prep for years. I always pin the healthy meal prep ideas but the process  just seems like too much. I…

Weekend Getaways – Chicago

My husband and I love to travel, and if we had our way we would be jetting off to exotic destinations every other week. But with two demanding jobs and an active social life in Denver, we have to find other ways to satisfy our travel cravings. Sometimes that can be as simple as going to Uncle for a steaming…
