my mom is awesome,
she goes with me to market & she is very nice to bounce ideas off of & to share dessert with.

we both made this trip a mini vacation!



Brad Garrett's Comedy club is the very best.
if you go to Vegas-check it out.
we go every time we go for market & it never disappointing. 

I had the BEST dessert @ Crush:
Chocolate Makeout.
as good as it sounds lol 



all about
Moscow Mules



shopped til we dropped for two days


and then, ya know,
I ran into Courtney Kerr
(more on that later)

ps. I want to cut my hairs JUST LIKE HER!

#PLTturns2 (the party)


and we had a party!!

I am a very big believer in parties and celebrations!
even if it only means a glass of champagne on the couch, or dinner with family.
everything worth celebrating, should be celebrated.
(and almost everything is worth celebrating)

Although this was in fact a PLT Birthday Celebration,
it is more a way for me to thank my family, friends, and employees.
ps. my employees are family + friends.

Austin Bradshaw (find him on FB)
the very very best local musician. ever.


I have said it before, and I really mean it, but none of this is possible without:
1. God and his amazing grace.
2. My parents and their faith in me.
3. All my family & friends and their wonderful support. 

so I won't hit ya with a real sappy post,
just please know, my gratefulness is real for you.


always, always 
good times with those people!

so I want to be very apparent and genuine when I say that my life & my store is 
not absolutely perfect.

the struggle is really real with trying to portray a genuineness through social media.

so when I say that this past week was WONDERFUL and some of the busy days every,
I mean it.

but please know that I didn't get much sleep,
I was really grouchy some days,
and didn't even wash my hair on others...



PLT turned 2 this past Monday.

and like any normal birthday celebration, I made sure it lasted a solid week.

we had sales/specials/fun events every single day


I am oh so grateful for all the girls coming in to help

So Chocolate in Kingwood was our first "treat table"
(those macaroons are real good)


Telly with Face:Provocateur came and taught a super fun and informative make up lesson.

small pic on the right, but I am really loving our "flower crown" in the dressing room.
Blair always makes my design dreams come true.


we started our Kid's Line this past week.
So many cute kids from 3-14 came shopping for "kid cut" styles.


 I love that PLT's bday gets celebrated like it is my birthday lol
 yay for flowers


In the midst of all the Birthday/Tax Free fun,
Gabby & Paige had their last day working for me.
They are headed off to college.
such a bittersweet thing: I will miss them, but they have so much fun ahead.


Stacey with Stacey's Sweets was in the store Saturday/Sunday 
with the amazing "cookie balls". It is like half cookie dough/half cookie and insanely addicting. 


"last day" selfies have become a  tradition:

 this year      //      last year


my sweet girls (that are my current employees) surprised me with this adorable print.
what a fun birthday gift for the store! love it


I am SO SO SO grateful.
