Soo, as this is almost the weekend, I won’t be responsible giving you the weekend blues by posting a few highlights from my trip to Austin, TX this past weekend… I stayed for 4 nights. And I was able to see two of my favorite people. It makes trips more enjoyable with friends… I also was able to go to San Marcos Outlets… And go to the whole foods by my hotels everyday I was there.
Here’s just a few pics since I didn’t take a bunch of pictures, unfortunately… I know, what kind of blogger am I?! The one who needs to recharge from time to time.
This is the COOLEST wall EVER!!!
Fun OOTDs will be shot there someday…
Met up with a friend of 15+ years. She’s a gem! I love her. She’s just one of those friends that can understand what you’re going through, and give you advice along the way. She’s a keeper.
My dog being the cutest dog on the ride down to Austin.
Taking pics of any school buses on the highway, because my niece is OBSESSED!
Enjoying my time with a friend who has a heart of gold! Loved my time with her. I’m pretty sure I don’t want to move to Austin, but I see many road trips in my future to maintain a friendship with her. She just encouraged me, just when I needed most.
Enjoying delicious ice cream from LICKS. So good! You need to try hot chocolate marshmallow, goat cheese, thyme & honey, and also brown butter brown sugar… They are delectable! A must when visiting A-town!
And this wall, wasn’t actually in Austin, as it was more in Waco… From Magnolia Market. Unfortunately there was no sighting of Jojo or Chip. But I’m telling you, I am going to meet them one day. And hopefully get a pic with them and chat a bit! That’s my plan anyway! But back to this wall, I love it with the faux flowers and washi tape. Swoon!
So as I said, I didn’t take many pictures nor did I eat at any really good local dives, besides licks…. But I’m making a list of what I want to do next time when I’m there!
• eat at yummy local places
• explore downtown and take OOTDs on the cool walls
• spend time with friends
• build my clientele and hopefully do a few style sessions when I’m there.
• Go to SXSW… Maybe…
• go to Milk + Honey spa and have a treatment done.
Anyway, thanks for reading!!! -Ryn
I hope it was wonderful!!! Sorry I didn’t post yesterday, but you know how it goes, Holiday = Rest! So I did just that!
Here’s a little food for thought that I posted yesterday on FB:
I’m thankful that His mercies are NEW every morning! And even though, I may have had a crappy start to my morning, I know that each day I can start with a thankful heart, each day I can have a do over. That each day can be thanksgiving in my life.
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope your day is positively wonderful! #puttingapositivespinonthings #positivity #passiton
I hope you’re enjoying black Friday! I’m currently at whole foods as I had a style session this morning! : )
I like to eat. And I really like to go where the locals go. The BEST thing that you can do when traveling, is to ask the locals where they eat. Tell them no chains please. And if there are any great hole in the wall places, it seems to always work to your benefit. Also, you can ask the front desk of your hotel. They’re chock full of information! And if all else fails, type in top 10 restaurants in the area you’re staying and choose from the restaurants that sound good!
For us, we either saw restaurants, heard from locals or looked on trip advisor.
Buffalo NY: The Eagle House
Hearty American comfort food in a cozy 19th-century tavern adorned with historical memorabilia. I actually didn’t pick well for my entree when I ate here, the rueben looked waaay better, but I did love the decor & ambiance.
Buffalo NY: Charlie the butcher
The beef on weck is on point! So delicious! I’ll probably keep dreaming of this place. It’s literally a whole in the wall place. But it has sweet potatoes, so there’s that. Just don’t ask too many questions, Charlie himself can & may kick you out!
Hamilton, Canada: Cannon Coffee.
Yeah, I tend to find the BEST coffee places around! And they do milk froth designs, of course it was picture worthy!
Hamilton, Canada: Southern Smoke.
I found a BBQ place all the way in Canada. When the chefs found out that I was from texas, they were super nice! The BBQ was quite good, and the price is good for ones pocket book!
Hamilton, Canada: The Works
This place was delish! They have over 50 burgers to choose from on the menu or you can build your own hamburger. And their poutine is soo good!
Hamilton, Canada: Second cup.
Again, I should have ordered something different, such as coffee or hot chocolate, but instead I ordered a lemonade type drink… not great, tasted like an herbal cough drop. But the pecan bar is phenomenal, just saying!
Hamilton, Canada: The original Tim Hortons. This wasn’t the only Tim Hortons we came to, but it is the original! And I cannot recommend it enough! I ordered a very chocolaty coffee drink and it is divine. I wish Texas had a Tim Hortons…
Niagara on the lake, Canada: The lake house. If you loooove a pretty view, you should dine here. If you want great food, you should dine here. If you would like great ambiance, you should dine here. If you’re not aware of what you’re about to order, ask questions… I ordered a peameal sandwich… which I’m not familiar with what peameal is, I assumed wrongly that it was a type of cheese and it was going to be like a grilled cheese. Wrong! Peameal = Canadian bacon. I don’t eat pork. Big mistake on my part! But, when I did order something else, it was great! I would totally dine here Again!
Niagara on the lake, Canada: Big smoke burger. So, you can’t use American dollars here. And they won’t cut your hamburger in half for you, but was the burger good? Yes. Was the poutine good? Mmhmm! Would I eat here again? If I was I needed to, yes. What can I expect, it was in an outlet mall…
Niagara Falls: Queen Charlotte tea room. Yes, just yes. At the moment I quite fancy having tea. It’s like my childhood is coming alive again! The salmon on croissant was yummy and whatever house tea I had was so good! I would definitely come back. And the day I went, it was cold & rainy out, Which helped it seems cozier.
Buffalo, NY: Wxyz bar. And last but not least, The Wxyz bar. I ordered to go two beef on wecks and an order of tater tot poutine… for an in-hotel food experience, I would totally order from them again!
Hope this helps as a guide to where your next dining experience should be! Enjoy! -Ryn

Y’all! I have been loving Rose Gold! I want to wear it, drink it, smell it? You know what I mean I reeeeeeeally like this color right now! I want to buy so much of it.
Did you see that swan rose gold cuff?! Swoon! I want!
I have one rose gold ring and I love it!
Think about this, rose gold looks gorgeous with so many neutrals: Black, Navy, Olive Green, Brown, Grey, Taupe, and even White! I love it with white. Oh and even the chambray color… Glorious!
• I can totally see a white tee, black skinnies, green military jacket & rose gold jewelry & heels! Yumm-y!
• You know me, I’m a yellow gold kinda gal, but I cannot get enough of this rose gold color. And the great thing is the rose & the yellow, not to mention the white can all be mixed! Yippee!
You’ll probably be seeing more rose gold on my Instagram and on here more!
And I kinda want a rose gold phone case! Yes, yes I do!
Hope this brightens up your Monday! Enjoy! -Ryn
