El Cosmico – Marfa, TX

Posted on May 1, 2014

After 7 hours of driving from Austin we arrived at El Cosmico Like I said in a previous post I have wanted to go somewhere different and completely unconventional. While googling, I came across this location.  It is an 18 acre campground that has trailers, safari tents and teepees and it was absolutely magical! That is literally the only way I can describe it. The weather was perfect though it did get a little chilly at night.  Here is a visual of theRead More

Prada Marfa

Posted on April 21, 2014

I couldn’t leave Marfa without visiting Prada Marfa.   It is a permanent installed sculpture by the artists Elmgreen and Dragset and is located about 35 miles outside of Marfa in the small town of Valentine, TX.  The installation was inaugurated on October 1, 2005.  It cost $80,000 for development and was never intended to be repaired so it could slowly degrade naturally.  Since then, it was vandalized twice – three days after completion and again the middle of March.  I so happened to be visitingRead More

Road trippin’ to Marfa, TX

Posted on April 16, 2014

Hola!   Check out a couple of photos my cousin Tamara took during our fun seven hour road trip from Austin to Marfa.  There were so many good pics, it was so hard to narrow it down.  Another humongous thanks to her for dealing with me pulling over at least every hour for a photo op.   More snapshots to come – Stay tuned! We took a pic of the directions because we had ZERO phone service (Thank God we did).

To the Max!

This is the outfit that I wore the second day in Austin.  It was a huge difference from what I was rockin’ to the airport – layers of clothing and boots.  This maxi dress was perfect and super comfy to explore the city.  The weather was absolutely beautiful!  85 degrees and not a cloud in the sky.  Oh yeah and no humidity!  Holy happy hair day! Stay tuned. More pics to follow… Dress, scarf, sunglasses, bag and shoes:  all Forever 21 Jacket:Read More

Texas Getaway: First stop – Austin!

Posted on April 9, 2014

Howdy ya’ll!   I finally had a chance to some what organize my pics from my Texas vacation.  I know it might seem random that I went to Austin but I’ve always heard great things about the city and was dying to check it out.  My cousin Tamara agreed to roll with me and it was great to spend quality time with her and friends that I haven’t seen in over five years!  Also,  the power of social media allowedRead More
