Fashion philosophy.

I’ve struggled with finding clothes that fit my body my ENTIRE life. Sometimes my “usual” size is too small, and other times it’s too big. What’s even more challenging is finding a dress that fits me all the way around

My goal with TCM is to take the guesswork out of shopping for clothes and eliminate the continual disappointment after trying on clothes at stores for HOURS and leaving with nothing. I genuinely want to help YOU ladies who also struggle with finding cute pieces to fit our beautiful bodies.

Stay tuned and subscribe for more outfit inspo. I love you all so so much and never forget how beautiful you are!

10 Must Do’s In Las Vegas

We just got back from an amazing trip to Las Vegas that was SO long but short. Have ya’ll ever gotten home from a trip and thought… that felt like forever but also went by in a blink of an eye? It’s like post-trip FOMO // depression // can I sleep now?

I don’t normally take early morning/late evening flights unless it’s for work, but I took the cheap route on this trip (flights are cheaper at this time since no one in their right mind would want to fly at these hours for fun).

But I have to pat myself on the back and say… it was actually cool to do SO much in only four days. While I’m still recovering from it all, I’ll sleep when I die!

Our flight arrived at 6:55AM – YES – AM – on Thursday morning and returned to Dallas at 11:30PM on Sunday evening, getting us home around 12:30AM since I checked a bag (girl probs).

We spent four FULL days in Vegas to see our sweet friends get married poolside at The Mirage. It truly was a gorgeous ceremony and fun after party. But we made sure to make a trip out of it as well.

10 Ways Dallas Can Help Houston #TexasStrong

Happy Labor Day my loves! Sorry I’ve been MIA since June. I started a new job and 100% of my focus has shifted to learning how to succeed in sales. More to come later this year! After the devastation from Hurricane Harvey was revealed, I felt it was my duty as a blogger to get a message out about how people in Dallas can help. 

Our hearts sank last week whenever category 4 hurricane Harvey hit our beloved Houston. Images and videos of the devastation continue to pour in as our state has come together to pick up the pieces. While a natural disaster is never easy, members of communities all around didn’t hesitate in helping each other out. During a time of scary and sometimes violent disagreements, radical racism and political madness, it seems most people were able to put their opinions aside as we were forced to come together and get through this as One.

We have just begun our recovery efforts, and we have a long ways to go. If you haven’t found the right avenue to volunteer with or donate to, I hope to provide several options to suit any of your philanthropic desires. Houston needs us for months to come. I decided to donate money because right now I have barely enough time to wash my hair, so I simply encourage ya’ll to just do what you can.

Not into people? Help the dogs! Not into giving away money? Volunteer! Wish you had a full understanding of where your donation was going? Give supplies instead of money. Honestly, there’s something for everyone and it’s important that in times of need, we ALL step up to the plate and contribute. Every effort counts.

Why You Should Job Hop In Your Twenties

As I watched the waves hit the shoreline of the beach go back into the ocean, I let my mind flow freely. Thoughts of “should I take this risk?” and “Am I crazy for wanting more?” and “If I don’t do it, what will my day to day be like if I decline?”

Anxiety, fear, happiness, and joy are just a few of the feelings I experience daily. One moment I’m in pure bliss – then BOOM! – an unexpected or difficult situation occurs and a cloud of anxiety starts to creep in.

One feeling I don’t believe in is regret. I know it’s cliche to say “Yeah, I have no regrets” and it is so overused, especially for millennials. But in my life, not taking an opportunity would equal a regret. And I don’t want to live my life looking back and thinking “well what if I did XYZ”?

Aside from my career, I’ve taken a risk by doing many things I was honestly terrified to do. But I felt that in my heart it was what I was supposed to do. Some examples include auditioning for The Voice, joining a women’s group where I knew no one, leaving a relationship, auditioning for a local band, learning how to practice yoga, etc…

You see, all of the things listed above are things I used to be afraid of. Now that I took a risk by trying new or scary things regularly, I have more confidence each time I push my own limits.
