You know what TRUE LOVE really is? For me, true love is being trapped in a group chat and LOVING IT! And there is no other group of women that I’d rather be in multiple group chats with than these three chicks below:
I’m sure you have all heard of SoulCycle by now. It’s everywhere! Celebrities all around Hollywood swear by it……
Even First Lady Michelle Obama, talks about how she and her daughters Malia and Sasha do it as well.
There is nothing I enjoy more than spending an afternoon with my favorite guy. He’s my best friend, my confidant, my partner in crime, my wingman, and so much more. So today, I decided to dedicate this blog post to my four-legged bestie, Rocky! And what better way to do that than to show you Rocky’s favorite parks (inside the loop, of course!)
If you have been following The Loop Lyfe on social media then you know that I did not spend my NYE celebrations in Houston. Instead, I decided to travel to Seattle, Wa. Why? Well, it’s a 50/50 answer. 50% was because I fell in love with the city and the other 50% was for a guy that I met (more on that later).
If you’re reading this then you know that I am NOT one to blend in with a crowd! I always like to make a big splash wherever I go. And it’s no exception when I go to the gym either. So when my gal pal Patty from Style By Patty told me about these new bright & bold leggings from Personal & Co Activewear, I was ecstatic to partner up with them!
If you know me then you know that I rarely like to leave the Houston loop to attend an event. But when the opportunity presented itself to travel to Mexico for Fashion week….How could I say no? So, I quickly hoped on my United flight and was on my way to Mexico City and I could not be more excited! Especially because I was invited by designer Lydia Lavin and Malafacha to attend and cover their runway shows! Thanks again for the invite. Before we get into the fashion, I want to give a huge shout-out to the hotel staff at Presidente Intercontinental Mexico. They really went above and beyond to make sure that my stay was enjoyable. And what’s not to love at that hotel? Oh and the best part was that it was a 5 minute walk to Fashion Central! Check out some of the stunning hotel pictures:
It’s that time of year again…..Lafayette’s Latin Music Festival! This is one of those events that I travel every year outside of the loop for. No better way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month than this.
I used to host the event several years ago and it was the best time! Here are a couple of pictures:
The 2015 Latin Festival will feature the following:
Want a reason to workout? Well, I may have JUST the thing. Nothing puts a little extra pep in your step than looking good, right? Well, thanks to Derek Lam, we can now look good in and out of the gym.
Derek Lam 10 Crosby released its first limited edition collection with Athleta’s first limited edition. Each piece is uniquely designed with geometrical shapes and bold colors. The fabric is also super soft and lightweight which is perfect for any activity.
Check out some of my favorite pieces:
The collection is available online and in some select stores. Houstonians are lucky because the Athleta in Rice Village was chosen to carry the collection!
The store held a mini-fashion show to display the new collection. Models for the show ranged from yoga instructors to freelance magazine writers and bloggers! The showcase wasn’t all about fashion though, it was also a charity event benefiting Girls on the Run.
Girls on the Run is a non-profit organization that inspires middle school girls to be joyful, healthy and confident. The curriculum combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with lessons that inspire girls to become independent thinkers, enhance their problem solving skills and make healthy decisions.
Completing a 5k gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The result—making the seemingly impossible, possible and teaching girls that they can.
Check out my video recap of the event below!

Have you ever spent hours scouring the internet looking for the perfect place to host a party? There are so many options in Houston yet there’s also not enough or not quite what we’re looing for. Well, I’m happy to report that you don’t have to look any further than SHARESPACE, Houston’s perfect event space.
I love it when a group of strangers can come together and make something work. That is exactly what happened when I decided to have a photoshoot at my house. I hit up Jared from JA Fusion, on facebook and told him I wanted to take some pictures. Within a matter of minutes, we had a date set.
About a day or so later, he asked if I had anyone to do my hair and make-up and truth be told, I didn’t! He told me not to worry and in the blink of an eye he rounded up Nikki from Nikki Lea Beautyy and Albany (a 2nd photographer) from Iriswings.
I have to tell you, that I was a bit nervous getting in front of a camera. I know, those that know me might be saying NO WAY! But it is true, posing is hard work and to be honest I didn’t think I could pull it off.
Regardless of what I thought, they all made me feel extremely comfortable. Nikki did a phenomenal job on my make-up. I have never looked that good before. Thanks again Nikki.
Al kept making me laugh, he broke the ice and made me feel really comfortable. He also helped me pick out some outfits. He’s got a creative eye for what looks good. Thanks Al.
And Jared, he truly is a master at his craft. He has a way of putting me at ease in front of the camera and we work really well together. Thanks Jared! I hope all of you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. I can’t wait for our next collab.
