bye bye bendel's...

8 years ago I started a hair accessory line...mila rose designs...never thinking that one day it might end up being sold in New York City, on 5th Ave, at one of the most iconic accessory stores in the world.  To be honest, I didn't really know that much about Henri Bendel except that Blair kept going there on Gossip Girl so obvi it had to be a big deal.  Little did I know that Bendel's was where many designers got their start...including Coco Chanel...and soon...me.

marie kondo...and 7 bags of clothes...

So we're a week into the new year and it's already been full of craziness!  Last weekend I was in NYC with the hubs...which I'll fill you in on soon...and this weekend I'm off to Dallas for work!  And instead of napping in my free time,

me, myself, and melis

Well pretties, I'm back...at least for the moment...because it's a new year and I'm starting things fresh...at least until I get bored.  But I missed taking fun blog pics, and I know H missed it too so really this is all for him.  

So now that it's a new year and I'm slowly coming out of the after xmas fog that I think everyone has been in, it's time to start living with the best of intentions...which will most likely last about two weeks, if that...but I think this year is going to be different and that's because I've picked the best word for 2019...

it's all about the accessories...

 It's seems like summer is slowly creeping up on me, however this week has been not too shabby.  I've been able to have my windows open, which H loves because he can smell the air and creep on everyone that walks by, and it's always so nice to go to sleep with the poison allergy air filling the room.  You sleep like a baby and then wake up sounding like an 80 year old who smoked 2 packs a day and itchy...stupid Texas.

But as the warmer air comes, so do the bad hair days.  Now when I took these pics it was super humid and gross out and thankfully I used to have a hair accessory line so I have a closet full of hundreds of hair pretties, and honestly they make bad hair days so much better.  And because I haven't worn one in awhile it made me miss rockin' my mrd's so they're definitely going to come back into rotation, but they are just a great way to look super adorbs even though you have boob sweat and are just wanting to lay in a bed of ice cubes.  

So as I mentally prep for it to get a good 30 degrees hotter, I'm going to enjoy the "cool" weather that I have now and maybe make some new mrd's for when the devil sun decides to stay for good.  I hope you guys have a fab friday and an amazing weekend!!!

Boerne Handmade Market Giveaway...


Happy Hump Day Pretties!  So if you've been following me for awhile then you know last Nov I attended the Boerne Handmade Market for the first time

happy birthday henri...

Happy Monday pretties!  Not only was yesterday Rex Manning Day...which as I mentioned in my insta stories if you don't know what that is then just stop reading this blog right now...but it was also Henri's 6th bday!!  So to be fair when we adopted H, he was already a year and a half old and they weren't really sure when he was actually born so this is his "official" bday aka the day we made up as his real bday and celebrate him!

And we had a lovely day!  It was sunny but nice and cool so we took several walks, he got lots of pressies, and ate everything from french fries to pizza to cake...we go big on birthday's!  And we also did one of his other fave things...blog pics.  No joke he loves taking pics...it's a little random but I'm not mad because the only thing that makes a fashion pic better is a fashion pic with a pup!  And he got to model off the newest addition bandana addition to Camden Lane available tonight!!
