Summertime Spa’ness at Equinox

I am addicted to the song Summertime Sadness by Lana Del Ray, so I had to add my little ditty’ness to the title—a perfect summer soundtrack!

With summer comes, the joys of vacation, the sun, traveling, oh and heat—especially if you’re staying at home in Dallas.  This July the Spa at Equinox Highland Park has launched the Equinox Blueberry Regenerating Facial—perfect for hydrating hot tired skin. I haven’t tried it yet, but since I’m a member at the Preston Hollow location I might have to venture south to Oak Lawn for a little facial sustenance.

India: A Trip to the Golden Triangle

Two years ago I travelled to India with Ben, so yes this post is way overdue! I am getting ready for another amazing trip, so I thought I would finally share a few great photos that I took from India.  For me, vacations are about exploring the world, not sunbathing by the pool, very bad for your skin, and boring!  The best part of this trip was the very beginning—meeting my IT team in Delhi, and finally putting a face to the name after six years of communicating via email. After visiting the Delhi office, Ben and I began our whirlwind trip, named by travelers as The Golden Triangle—we travelled from Delhi, to Agra, across to Jaipur, and back to Delhi.

Resort 2014 Review

Pajamasmy new obsession, well pajama-style pants at least. I’ll leave the full throttle pajama party mood to Marc Jacobs, but show me loose fitting, printed drawstring pants, and I’m interested.  I recently made three purchasescamouflage at Haute Hippie, black and white swirl print at DVF, and all black tuxedo style at Vince.  I’ve definitely got comfort on my mind; add a couple of layers, long shirt, t-shirt and a cropped jacketeasy breezy.
