Five on Friday :: Happy Halloween & Happenings in Houston


Happy Halloween!!!  I hope you have a wonderful day eating lots of candy and hopefully getting more treats than tricks.  We will be eating an early dinner of Mummy Dogs before passing out candy and walking Jack around the street. 

I can't believe this was Jack last year...he has grown so much!


It wouldn't be Halloween without a montage of my sweet Tucker in his Halloween costumes. I totally dropped the ball on his costume this year.  I planned to find a fish for him to wear since Jack is a Fisherman.  He will be costumeless this year unless I run out on my lunchbreak and find something. 

Let me know if there is a place I should hit!

2007 - 2012
I think Tucker is thrilled I dropped the ball!


I'm obsessed with Benefit's Dallas.  I've been using it as a blush the past week and I think it is just perfect for fall. Thank you Kristina of Pretty, Shiny Sparkly for the recommendation! Your suggestions are always spot on! She is hands down my favorite beauty blogger and even better, she is lives in Houston too! In case you need another reason to follow her, besides being an amazing beauty blogger, she is a full-time physician! 


My dear friend Allison of Swish Productions is organizing a Houston Holiday Artisan Market on November 15 from 9am-3pm.  Her shop will be selling leggings, scarves, and other cute accessories as well as her jewelry hangers that are my absolute fave.  Definitely plan to attend if you are free that day!  There will be tons of great shops and local food trucks!


If you are a blogger, there are several conferences coming up in Texas!  This past week a brand new conference was announced - The Thrive Conference will be held in The Woodlands, just north of Houston, on February 27-28.  Tickets go on sale November 10.  Only 100 tickets available - I sure hope I can snag one...especially since I already reserved a hotel room and a roomie! 

Texas Style Council "Camp" Conference will be held March 20-22.  Normally this wouldn't be my scene since I'm not a style blogger, but I LOVE that this year it's all about getting back to blogging basics and supporting women.  It's being held at a campsite so people will be relaxed and casual and really focused on creating blog content not "being seen."  Tickets go on sale for this TOMORROW {Nov. 1} and there are only 275 tix available so act fast if you think you want to attend.   

Happy Halloween,
