Food Porn

Last week, my brother Andrew cooked a four course meal for “all the single ladies” and his partner Veronica on Valentine’s Day. To say it was delicious would be an understatement. In fact, no amount of words will do this meal justice so instead I will leave you with these photos and be sure to check out La Famiglia Foods.

Outfit Repeater

If you follow me on Instagram then chances are you have seen this dress before. I first fell in love with this dress back in July when I tried it on in Forever 21 and have been in love ever since. I swapped out my sandals for a pair of boots and layered my favorite black mock neck top. I pinned my top using safety pins in order to create a “cropped top” effect. This outfit is effortless, simple, and chic. I have no shame in being an outfit repeater. I love knowing that I am getting the most out of the clothes that I buy.

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetThis past weekend I spent the day in Santana Row with two of my favorite people, Ana and Daisy, in one of my favorite places. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ll already know how sentimental Santana Row is for me. I had such a wonderful day eating, talking, laughing, taking photos, vlogging, shopping, and taking in the beautiful sight that is Santana Row. Ana and I could not stop talking about how amazing it would be to live in a place like this. Although, we both agreed that we could do without $2,000 rent that comes with living in such a place. We talked about future collaborations and tried to convince Daisy that she can be a blogger too. Ana and I also took Daisy to some of our favorite shops that she had never been to before. It is so easy to get caught up in life, that you can forget to just have fun. If you want to see what other shenanigans we got up to that day definitely check out Ana’s vlog and subscribe to her channel. Also, be sure to lookout for a mini haul video and a blog post on the outfit I wore. Coming soon.

Galentine’s Day

galentines_day-2

For those of you who are not an avid fan of Parks and Recreation, like I am, then you probably have no idea what Galentine’s Day. February 13th is Galentine’s Day. While it’s not a nationally recognized holiday, it is, as Leslie Knope would say, “Oh, it’s only the best day of the year.” To me Galentine’s Day is a day to celebrate the incredible womyn in my life.

To the incredible womyn in my life:

You inspire me. You make me laugh and you are there for me when I cry. You are intelligent, talented, resilient, beautiful, and are more than capable of anything and everything you set out to do. I am always here for you, like I know you are always there for me. I support you and all of your dreams and I will always be here to cheer you on.

Happy Galentine’s Day.

Sincerely,
Alexis Renae Griggs
