RECAP - 2nd #ATXBloggerMixer

2.27.2015

These are my people. That's what I think when I'm surrounded by bubbly, creative and ambitious bloggers. I had an absolute blast at the 2nd ATX Blogger Mixer last night at Benji's Cantina. Benji's made us feel like stars by giving us rounds of margaritas, special shots, and amazing food.


Erica was amazing and made the cutest sequin heart pins for all attendees (she stayed up till 5am making them...crazy girl!). Big thanks to Frames Direct and Etcetera, Etc. for the awesome giveaways!


I met bloggers I've stalked on Instagram for months, maybe more, and brand new bloggers. Many of them we'll be attending CAMP this month, and I was able to talk a few in to going as well! I know how intimadating it can be showing up to a social event like this and not knowing anyone, so thank you to those women who came out. There may be some akward or uncomfortable moments, but that's life. Putting yourself out there is worth it. We all left with new friendships and feeling extremely encouraged and motivated to keep blogging!



Here's to the next #ATXBloggerMixer. Erica and I have already started planning so stay tuned (likely in May)!

HomeRight Paint Sprayer

2.26.2015

After painting for hours and hours, days and days, finally getting a paint sprayer was a life saver. I used the HomeRight Finish Max Pro Fine Finish Sprayer on the french doors for my master bathroom. Prior to the renovation, our vanity opened right up in to our bedroom, which was horrible in the morning. These doors were my favorite addition to our bathroom.  I was a bit intimidated to use a sprayer, but it was actually very easy. The finish was consistent and it looked like a professional did the job! This sprayer is great for large projects and perfect for doors. I'm itching for another project...just waiting for warm weather and a weekend with no plans.

Snap Kitchen's Newest Location - Avery Ranch

2.24.2015

Snap Kitchen recently opened up it's newest location in Avery Ranch, and I'm extremely excited because it's a minute from my office!


They feature quick and easy to grab prepared meals that are super healthy yet flavorful.  If you know me, you know that I'm not a healthy eater. I love my carbs and sugar, and unfortunately I rarely eat vegetables.  I obviously need to eat better, especially when eating out...cue Snap Kitchen. Most days I eat a carb loaded lunch, and then crash around 2pm, wanting a chocolate pick me up. The first time I tried Snap Kitchen, I had the chicken enchiladas, super delicious. About 30 minutes after lunch, I drank the Far East Turmeric Elixir juice. The juice gave me so much energy, and I was so full from lunch and the juice, that I barely had an appetite at dinner.


Alex really enjoyed the bison burger with an egg on top and sweet potato fries, and I actually ate kale.  All ingredients are locally sourced, and almost all are gluten free and organic. I really like that the labels on the meals give you the exact calories as well as a list of all ingredients (all pronounceable and no preservatives). I usually don't count calories, but it's crazy to know that 



Snap Kitchen has 6 Austin locations and they also have curb side pick up if you can't get out with the kiddos in the car!

Have you ever tried Snap Kitchen? 

Preparing for #TXSC CAMP

2.22.2015

I'm heading to CAMP in less than a month and I'm super excited. I've never made business cards for my blog, but Indiana advised it's a good idea to bring them. I've never been super serious about this blog, but I might as well since I've put a lot of effort in to it over the past FOUR years. Wow, I can't believe I've been writing this blog for that long.

I have my eye on Minted's business cards. Here are my top picks. 






Which one is your favorite?


P.S. For those of you who got engaged over the holidays Minted's 2015 Wedding Invitation Collection just came out and it is beautiful. Right now you can get 10% off + free shipping on wedding invitations, save the date cards and wedding thank you cards.

2nd ATX Blogger Mixer

I'm excited to be hosting the 2nd ATX Blogger Mixer next Thursday in downtown Austin. Erica from Miss Louie is co-hosting with me, and I can't wait to socialize with local bloggers.

#JESSECOULTER - No. 4

2.12.2015

You can see through the progression of my outfits below that it's warming up quite a bit in Texas, and I'm LOVING it! Bring on the heat. I'll take a 100 degree day any day over the cold. I'm currently online window shopping for Spring, specifically my trip to Hawaii in June.  I've never been one to enjoy bathing suit shopping, but this year I'm going to invest. I've worn the same bathing suit since my honeymoon almost 5 years ago.

Shirt: JoeFresh via Jcpenney. Jeans: Gap. Scarf: Asos. Boots: Kork-Ease. Necklace: Jcrew Factory
Shirt: Forever21. Overalls. CottonOn. Boots: Kork-Ease
Dress: Langford Market. Sandals: Target. Necklace: Ily Couture
Find more of my outfits on Instagram via the hashtag #JesseCoulter. The best part about most of my outfits is that they are VERY affordable. My overalls were $5 and so were my sandals from Target.  I basically have a capsule wardrobe...but not intentionally.
