“I thought acne ended after puberty,” my boyfriend once said as he looked at me, as I stressed out over a breakout in the mirror. Growing up, I always thought acne was a teenage phase we get through by 18, but clinical studies show that 54 percent of adult women have occasional acne, too. To be honest, I’ve struggled with hormonal breakouts and stress acne my entire life. Thankfully, I’ve grown in confidence since puberty and have learned to love my skin in adulthood—even with its occasional breakout and redness. My skincare arsenal is always growing. I’m happy I found soothing products to help me fight off breakouts like the new Neutrogena® Soothing Clear line at Walmart.
March is one of my favorite months of the year because we can reflect on the power of women in history, and our commitment to lifting up each other today and always. In honor of International Women’s Day, I’ve teamed up with Dessert Gallery to design a cookie to empower girls and contribute to the conversation to end violence against women. The best part? This Girl Power cookie will donate 25% of all proceeds to Houston Area Women’s Center.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a cold-shoulder top but lately I’ve felt like some of the selections out there feel uninspiring. “Been there, done that,” is never a good sentiment for your wardrobe. I found this Chicwish top and totally fell in love with the unique shoulder draping and elevated style.
Color Factory is adding rainbows and sunshine to Houston. The 14-room exhibit that originated in San Francisco has brought a world of color to Texas in its third showroom. I had an opportunity to take a tour of the space before opening day and was able to get the inside scoop on some of the biggest highlights at Color Factory.

Did you make the world a better place in 2019? I ask myself this question at the end of every year as I review all of my resolutions and the progress I’ve made. Each year, one of my main goals is to practice generosity toward others in my daily life. My vision board is filled with photos that evoke health, financial stability, and business growth but on top of all of those things, kindness is my ultimate goal. I believe optimism trickles down into every other area of our lives, helping us to unlock ambition and achieve our goals. This year, I’m thrilled to “Frost It Forward” with Frost Bank to help spread kindness in my community and inspire others to do the same.
