The Truth About It All: Mara Hoffman Resort 2015

Mara Hoffman recently revealed her swim 2015 collection at Miami Fashion Week. And it is needless to say that as always she wooed each and everyone of us. The designer stuck to her loyal kaleidoscope print that makes you dizzy if you stare too long. The lovely collection which features the loyal kaleidoscope print, tribal prints, parrots,sheer tops, and fringe is truly eye catching. Each piece has would have its own voice if fabric were to speak, my favorites would have to be the first three. In the first three pieces the trends are represented in more than one way. Starting with the always appealing two piece swim suit,which this time around features kaleidoscope patterns along with tribal. The very next one features the classic high waist swim suit with sheer attributes that compliment the swimsuit as a whole. I love how on my third favorite she mixes a tie dye feel, with tribal colors, giving the vintage one piece a different and more colorful approach. 
The way she mixed rain forest colors with trending pieces and even pieces that have already been around makes the collection irresistible. What do you guys think of the collection? Will you be seen wearing any of these gorgeous pieces next summer ? YAY or NAY? xx -Steph

The Truth About It All: Style On A Rainy Summer Day

There are times when i like to keep things simple and love opting for a simple look that speaks for itself rather than raiding the entire closet in search for that perfect outfit the screams 'HERE I AM!'. Simplicity goes a long way, it always has and it brings great comfort. It was raining this morning so I wasn't sure if I wanted to do an outfit post, but then I decided it'd be perfect to shoot because after the rain comes the sun and everything outside recovers an extraordinary amount of color. I love this outfit, It literally took me five minutes to put this together. I love that its simple, yet chic and looks to a great extent the way i wanted it  to look. But sstill manages to be a fun look. What do guys think of the outfit YAY or NAY ? xx -Steph

The Truth About It All: A Piece of Italy In The Heart of Houston

Just the other day I found myself super hungry and wanting something healthy. Then I remembered I previously passed by this little place called Cafe Dolce Gelato an Italian ice cream/sandwhich place. I got curious and instead of opting for chick fil a I went there instead. After a few minutes of eyeing the menu which is filled with great variety,I decided to get their house salad. A salad so simple, but oh soo delicious. The salad had baby spinach, romaine lettuce, roma tomatoes, pesto cheese, black olives, red onion, and an Italian olive oil dressing they make right there. And to compliment the food an rasberry italian soda. Today during lunch rush, after being pleasantly pleased with how good the salad was the first time, I decided to return for more. I had in mind getting the same salad but after looking at the menu once more I decided to opt for their Salami Pesto Crepe not knowing what a treat I was in for. As I walked up to the counter to place my order in the crowded space between the tables I was cordially greeted this time by the owner Josh Collier. He was very kind and friendly. It was right there clear that he is dedicated to his business and likes to see that everything is going correctly, he was so kind as to go around to the tables asking everyone how the food was and if they needed anything. From a distance I watched him make the crepe and before I knew it he brought it to my table at a glance the crepe looked simple, but in a mysterious way. Around the crepe placed were  a few grapes, blueberries and a single perfectly looking strawberry. This is a place that I will definitely go to soon once again. Needless to say the crepe was delicious ! :) If you guys are inside the Galleria go into Cafe Dolce Gelato, you wont disappointed. xx -Steph

The Truth About It All: Pensacola Postcards

I recently took a mini vacation with my family. I'd call it an planned but at the same time unplanned vacation ,because last minute the place we were going changed. We were originally supposed to go to LA but then there was a change of plans, so we ended up going to the little piece of heaven in Florida known as Pensacola. I thought, 'ok we have been to Florida too many times.' So originally i wasn't thrilled with the idea since i'd much rather go to LA. But when we got there i was instantly captivated by the beautiful blue ocean that layed ahead of us in every direction. The people who were there that were not only from Pensacola but there was soo many other people, who were visiting out of state and even out of the country. The food was truly amazing, I don't particularly like seafood but the was this restaurant called Crabs which had the most delicious blue crab cream soup i have ever tasted and the tastiest grilled shrimp I've had in years. Needless to say i was quite satisfied with this little four day vacation and definitely plan on going back soon. Pensacola is now one of my favorite places to visit. What do you guys think? YAY or NAY ? xx -Steph
