First Day of School

Last Tuesday was Aston's first day in Kindergarten. We are looking a little smug here. Coming from Disneyland the day before and still in PST time zone, it wasn't the best of days for him. Nevertheless, we made it fine to school and meeting turned out fun with his new teachers and classmates. 

This week is full of adjustments for him. The program ends noon all week and the transition to the After school program after lunch, seems to be a little overwhelming. We are positive he will be adjusting well soon and will cope with the demands of the new kindergarten schedule! 

First Day of School

Hey buddy, we are so excited for you!



wow. hours and minutes go fast but the days seem to last longer although the week is almost over. we are looking forward to another weekend and hopefully, getting most things done on my to-do list including a back-to-school tax free weekend shopping that kicks off today! 

before i head on out the door, let me just dump a few iphone photos here from the past week including some shots from the past weekend! 
are you fantasizing fall? i do. i busted out my fall nailpolish colors to get some inspiration! 
oh and pink was the color past weekend! 
our little guy enjoying a ride later in the evening. it's still too hot outside and it's totally brutal. 
we also enjoyed a fantastic sunday brunch at our favorite mexican restaurant, escalante's and we shared a huge plate of french toast cooked the mexican way. i can't say no to caramelized apples! 
after brunch we walked across the street and visited the beautiful showroom of restoration hardware. 
let's just say, i want everything. nuff said. 
Aug 13 week
i finally joined the bubble necklace cult and they are really cute. they do elevate the look of a simple tshirt. so far i have that green one, a blue bubble pendant and also got a cobalt blue bubble bib necklace and a yellow one that dear friend, nina picked up for me. 
and oh, red velvet sandwich cookies are fixing my sweet cravings lately!  
i am also obsessed with BB creams lately. luckily i found the last one at CVS the other day. it does wonders to my skin so far and you can tell even when you wipe them off after a long day! 
Week aug 13
i'm still heavy on metallic nails and this new purple one from essie is divine. it does come out looking like silver but with hints of violet in it. 
just sharing a new hair routine here : moroccan argan oil spray on damp hair adds a bit of shine and relaxes frizz hair. i have naturally wavy hair, so i don't think i need a body wave perm since i wake up with slightly curly hair anyway. so with a spray of oscar blandi dry shampoo and the moroccan argan oil, i'm set! 
lastly, i'm in love with my golden birkin art print by randa of iseenoise prints. it's going to go in my dresser or closet. still undecided. 

OK, i think that's it for the week....you all have a fabulous weekend! 



Another weekend over. Another week ahead. August is here and school will be too!

Some images here and there. Glimmer nailpolishes and lemon bars ~ just a few things that make me smile. 
Matching boat shoes for me and the little guy and a welcome packet from our friends at Disney. Yay!


Pretty pink pattern explosion and orange sailboats are perfect for summer. And so is delectable Magnum ice cream bars and the preppy pink and green combo!


How was your weekend? 


Latest Food Haunts

Restaurant week started the other day and it's a great time to check out dining places you have not visited before in the Houston area. The yearly event is for a good cause and judging from past years success, this one will be too if not better. To see if your favorite restaurant is participating, check out the list here

I have a few places that I frequent lately and I couldn't be more pleased with their food and service. Love to hang out here : 
  • Sweet Paris - my favorite is their Dulce de leche crepe
  • Tiny's (both the Saint and Rice locations) - the best choc chip cookie ever in town! 
  • Guru Burgers and Crepes - with an only Sugar Land location, I'm so happy we're so close to this gem! Faves : Ukulele Burger (with egg and pineapple) and Guru Truffle fries. Oh the crepes are fantastic too! 
We also dined last Saturday at Triniti and that was a fabulous place with really high energy crowd and amazingly delicious food. They are pariticipating in HRW too! 


Growth Spurt

Where did our baby go? In a few weeks he will be in Kindergarten. Lots of mixed emotions over here. Keep me from sobbing.

He looks and acts different now - in a good way. Our little big boy is acting like he's 5. He's more verbal with his emotions and how he feels (a tender way of talking back at us). More decisive and highly inquisitive (aka very nosy). And refuses to have a haircut. He's going for the surfer dude look. 

He still loves his goldfish crackers though and he's rekindling his love for the Cars movie in preparation for a Disney California trip before school starts. Superheroes and villains take a back seat for now (thank god) as racecars and tow trucks are a new passion.
