This post is an update to a previous post. WHY? Because we just got back from Walt Disney World and want to share with you our experience. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of this post, you will see that I was there in October 2019. What a difference one year makes! Who would have thought that we would still be dealing with Covid-19. You can travel and you can go to Walt Disney World – safely! Today, let’s focus on how to navigate Disney World safely in 2020.
Howdy y’all and happy first full week of October! As many of you know, I traveled to West Texas several weeks ago. In case you missed it, be sure and read my glamping travel experience HERE and my Marfa travel guide HERE. Today I am going to share with you what I wore on my trip through Marfa and the Big Bend region. Think of most of these looks as western chic and on trend for fall. My kind of fall fashion!
Y’all may remember that I said I had a special surprise for you this month in collaboration with BeautyBio. Well, the wait is over and the secret is finally out – BeautyBio Hair Therapy Set is finally here! I was lucky enough to be one of the first people to try out these new hair products, and y’all, it totally works. Not only does it feel soothing to the scalp, but it also achieves fuller hair. If you have over-styling hair breakage, a thinning hairline, postpartum hair loss, scalp itchiness, irritation or even dryness, then this product is for you.
With social distancing still alive and well, it is tough to see your loved ones on a regular basis; especially if they live far away. A floral arrangement is the perfect gift to send loved ones. Whether it is a new baby, a birthday, condolences or even a way to show you are thinking of them – it’s sure to brighten their day. The problem is that when your loved one lives in another city or state, you don’t want to risk sending flowers from a florist that you don’t trust. I count on UrbanStems as my go-to flower delivery service. They provide contactless delivery for their beautiful floral arrangements nationwide. You can always count on the quality and care that goes into each arrangement. I love quality consistency – especially when it comes to gift giving. Right now, get 15% off your order plus FREE shipping with code TANYA15. This offer is good now through 10/31, so take advantage of it!
I have never been happier to FINALLY publish a travel blog post. Belize is now open for travel and I’m sharing our trip to Cayo Espanto with you. Pete and I were there in early March but you know what happened after that… Let me share with you why we love this little private island retreat that puts the ‘luxury’ in luxury travel!
Happy first day of October! Can you believe we are already here? As most of you know, October means that it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

During the month of October, Colleen Rothschild Beauty is donating 25% of retail sales of the “Breast” Friend Self-Exam Butter directly to The Pink Fund. This will not only help you to stay healthy, but also help other breast cancer patients. ALSO be sure and check out the Dynamic Duos sale happening now. Get your favorite skincare pairs at a discounted rate now through 10/4. PLUS, I have a GIVEAWAY happening on Instagram.
Howdy! I’m back with my second installment about the Big Bend, Texas road trip. Last week I told you about The Local Chapter and how we spent most of the week glamping while exploring Terlingua and the Big Bend area. We had a couple of days to explore Marfa and the surrounding areas of Alpine and Marathon, Texas. Why? Let me explain…
Happy Thursday! We’re almost to Friday – yippee! You may have read my post last week about blue looks for your fall weddings and events here. Today, I want to look at the perfect red dress for any event. As things start to open back up, we are entering into fall wedding season, so you need a dress that is beautiful and slimming and it just so happens that I have the perfect dress for you.
Hip hip hooray we get to celebrate! Today I want to wish a huge Happy Birthday to Colleen Rothschild! In honor of her birthday, Colleen Rothschild is offering 25% OFF site-wide with code BDAY25. I’ve never heard of a better way to celebrate a birthday than to shop an amazing sale. It feels like my own birthday! You all know that I love Colleen Rothschild products, so today I want to show you some of my favorite skincare and haircare products she has to offer. Hopefully this will help you make a decision on which sale items to choose. But let me tell you, it is almost impossible to pick favorites – the products are all so great! You can also click here to watch my video about the 10 best sellers and click here to shop the best sellers.
2020 will be remembered as the year of the road trip. I’m a native Texan and have traveled many places in our great state but I have never been to the Big Bend area. Imagine my excitement when we decided to travel to check out The Local Chapter near Terlingua, Texas. You’ll want to know about this magnificent place and we’re sharing our itinerary.
Feeling blue from all of the events and wedding cancellations from the spring and summer? The good news is that events are slowly starting back up again, so you need to update your wardrobe to show up in style. I am feeling all of the blues this fall! It is a beautiful color on everyone, plus it is flattering. No more feeling blue – time to just wear blue! Also, if you want more fall styles, be sure and check out these lightweight sweaters for in between seasons.
Y’all know that I am always trying out new skincare, haircare and beauty products, but some of them are not a part of my daily regime. Therefore, I want to highlight the 15 beauty products that I can’t live without. These are the beauty products that I use daily and buy over and over again. Also, just know that I only write about products that I truly like, so just because something I’ve written about doesn’t make the list does not mean that I don’t love it! And let’s be real… this list changes seasonally. Below is a detailed list of my current favorite products (in no particular order).
I’m so excited to show you our recent Family Room update featuring Crypton Fabric. Why did I chose this fabric? Because we have pets! If you are a pet owner you know how hard it is to keep them off the furniture and remove stains. Crypton Fabric is antimicrobial as well as stain and spill resistant to both water and oil-based stains making it the ideal choice for this project. A huge thank you to my designer Amy Berry and her impeccable choices which helped my vision come to life. Now, let me show you the results of this performance based fabric. Before/After pictures at the bottom of this post.
Alrighty! So many of you all watched this process on my Instagram Stories and I told you I would follow up with a blog post. You have often heard me say that I know a neck lift surgery is in my future. While I hope to stave off plastic surgery for a bit, I like to explore all of my options for reducing the appearance of those pesky neck lines and today I am sharing my experience with Radiesse and Dr. Lynley McAnalley.
Happy TUESDAY! Here’s to a new school year and hopefully some fall temperatures! I hope you had a great Labor Day Weekend and got all of the kiddos off this morning for their first in-person day of school. We did absolutely nothing this weekend but relax by the pool and binge watch The Americans. As most of you know, I have been using BeautyBio for several years. I take good care of my skin, have a great daily routine, visit my dermatologist often and I am always in search of new products. I’m here to tell you that BeautyBio products are the real deal and actually work. Today I have a special treat, so be sure and scroll all the way through for a special BeautyBio product GIVEAWAY.

If you’ve been following me on the blog for long (over 6 years and 1600 blog posts), you have probably recognized that my style is pretty classic. This is because I find that versatile pieces go a long way and are worth investing in. So my aim is to always pull together an outfit that is simplistic, chic and stylish as well as timeless. How do I achieve this? Well let me tell you my 5 tips for creating classic style fashion! This post originally published last year but I think you will agree, the style tips are timeless.
I know travel looks a bit different these days due to Covid-19. While I miss jumping on a plane and heading to another country, I’ve made the most of it with local travel. Laura and I just got back from a little retreat to a luxury spa in Texas and it was so beautiful and relaxing that we literally forgot where we were. Lake Austin Spa Resort has just completed a major renovation and we’re excited to share our magnificent stay with you.
Today we get to discuss accessories! You may have noticed that I have been wearing these bracelets all the time and that I just featured them in my blog post yesterday. Allie+Bess is a Dallas-based company that sells hundreds of bracelets that are great for any look. They are stackable, trendy and unique. There are no other bracelets like them on the market. The bracelets are high-quality and comfortable to wear. Plus, they work for any wrist size (kids included!). BONUS: To celebrate their 1 year anniversary, get 30% OFF with code ONEYEAR!
Gosh, how is it already August 25th? The year 2020 has truly felt like one long day. Let’s do something fun for today. I have some August Instagram round-up pics to share, plus I’m taking this opportunity just to get caught up with you. After all, this is our “coffee time” where I tell you what’s happening in my world. So grab a large cup of joe and let’s get started.
