• Never hungry in Houston (mostly Viet food tour)

    Last weekend, we made a quick trip to Houston to visit our friends and probably left five pounds heavier! The food scene was super diverse and did not disappoint. I asked here on Instagram about your favorite spots, and it’s apparent Houston locals are very passionate and opinionated about their food!

The dress looks pretty simple online, but once it’s on, the flattering fit and flare cut highlights all ...

  • My experience with laser hair removal

    In an older blog post (8 years ago to be exact … dang!), I casually mentioned getting laser hair removal in Boston and received a number of questions. At that time, I was just finishing up treatments on my legs and didn’t feel like I could speak to long-term results yet. I thought about getting the bikini area done in one fell swoop, but was literally scared off by other ...
