How I’m prepping for Fall with the Amazing Smell of New Gain Fresh Water Sparkle™

When you have to keep the laundry of four people and a dog smelling fresh, you focus on scent. As the laundry coordinator in my home making sure our laundry smells fresh is a big deal. To add an extra boost of scent to our favorite blankets, t-shirts, tutus, and dresses, I have the help of a new trio. The NEW Gain Flings™ Laundry Detergent Pacs in Fresh Water Sparkle™ scent, NEW Gain fireworks!™ in-wash scent booster in Fresh Water Sparkle™ scent and Gain Dryer Sheets in Fresh Water Sparkle™ scent. This amazing new scent is exclusive to Dollar General and worth trying out. 

While all three work great together to keep our laundry fresh and smelling amazing, I like that each has its own benefits.

  • Gain Dryer Sheets fights that annoying static in the dryer and leaves our clothes with fewer wrinkles. Which means less ironing and that’s a bonus for me.
  • Gain Flings™ Laundry Detergent Pacs are packed with more scent and dissolve in both hot and cold water, making them my all time favorite. I just place the Gain flings!™ directly into the drum before our clothes and have the best smelling clothes as a result!
  • Gain fireworks!™ in-wash scent booster gives our clothes an extra boost of scent. Because, when it comes to scent you can never have too much! 🙂 Thanks to these three our laundry smells amazing.

As fall approaches, it’s time for me to bring out our favorite blankets which we will use to keep warm as the temperatures drop. If you are a blanket lover like my family, the new Fresh Water Sparkle™ scent is one you’ll want to try. No one wants to snuggle in a smelly blanket, right? Washing our blankets with the new Gain Fresh Water Sparkle scent from makes them smell fresh.

Hi y’all! How was your weekend? Mine was perfect even though we didn’t do a thing! Sometimes I feel that I need to do just that; stay home and do nothing. Because if I’m being honest, we are always up to something. Since I knew I’d be home this weekend, I decided to order a few things with Favor. Did you know that Favor has free beer & wine delivery exclusively from H-E-B? You heard that right!

It is super simple to order, whether you order online or with the app. The best part is that you can get some of the best beers and wines delivered right to your door and in under an hour​! I opened my app and browsed through the selection. Picked Mike’s Hard Lemonade (a personal favorite) for myself and Karbach’s Art Car IPA for the hubby, who loves Texas craft beer.

Once I placed my order, I was able to track it every step of the way, from the time it was assigned to the time it was on its way to me. Because I try to be a savvy shopper, I love that just because you’re ordering through an app, the price doesn’t change. You get to enjoy the exact same low prices​ found in stores when you order H-E-B Beer & Wine with Favor. There’s also no minimum order​, so you can order a single bottle of wine to a six pack of beer, talk about convenience. I was even able to make dinner while waiting for my order to be delivered. By the time my Favor was complete, the hubby got home to a cold pack of his favorite beer; which we enjoyed while catching up on our favorite show.

Trendy Thursday LinkUp + I’m a Little Camo Obsessed!

The last couple of days have actually felt like fall. Which is honestly surprising for Houston. So, I thought I’d share this fun Camo tunic c/o Tickled Teal. It’s just under $20 which I think it’s a great price point. Though I wore it with a tied knot, it can easily be styled differently.

Fall is for Jeans… and I’m bringing out all my favorites. These black mid-rise jeans c/o Mott & Bow are my go-to because they fit me like a glove and go with almost anything in my closet. You may remember them, as I have styled and shared them in the past. They’re fully in stock and the best part is that besides picking your size you can pick between a 26 & 30 inseam. I am linking them below so that you can get to shopping. 😉


Éstos últimos días han sido de un clima fantástico, y pareciera como que ya empezara el otoño. Lo que es algo extraño para Houston, pero no pienso quejarme. Mejor lo disfruto… Justo por que teníamos temperaturas más frescas aproveché para compartir con ustedes esta blusa de camuflaje. Cuesta menos de $20, lo que me parece un buen precio. Y aunque la usé amarrada enfrente, fácilmente se puede usar de otra manera. 😉

En cuanto entra la temporada del otoño, yo digo que es temporada de pantalones y por eso comienzo a sacar mis favoritos. Estos pantalones los he compartido con ustedes anteriormente y la verdad que son mis favoritos. Así que abajo les dejo el enlace por si se antoja comprarlos!

Two Day San Antonio Itinerary for Families

Day 1

Two weekends ago we planned an impromptu trip west. We ended up in San Antonio and had a blast! We did some of the usual tourist attractions and then some new things as well. I love visiting San Antonio because even though it’s a small city, it’s a lot of fun. If you’re ever planning to drive through Texas, I recommend that you stop by San Antonio and maybe check out some of my recommendations. 😉

Our first stop after checking in to our hotel was the San Antonio River Walk. We walked around a little bit so the girls could get the river walk experience. Even though we had planned to do a boat tour, we didn’t get to this time. This is another way to get around the Riverwalk if you’re not up for a walk.

Because we’re big foodies, finding a place to eat was on the list too. We have tried several restaurants in the area before, but this time the hubby had a taste for Tex Mex. So we ate at Riverwalk Casa Rio, a riverfront restaurant where we got to sit outside and enjoy the somewhat cool weather.

After dinner, we went back to the hotel to freshen up and then out for ice cream, because dessert is a must! At night, San Antonio is really pretty and you see many people walking around and others riding horse carriages. We had not planned for it but seeing the girls’ excitement at what they called Cinderella’s carriage made us decide to also do a carriage ride. This was probably the highlight of the day, it was nice to see a bit more of San Antonio this way.

Day 2 

We gave the girls a choice on where to spend our second day in San Antonio and they both thought SeaWorld would be fun. Because we were meeting up with my brother and niece, this also seemed like a good place to spend the day. We had all gone to San Antonio before but it was few years ago. While places like this don’t change much, the shows, splash pad and attractions were all really fun. We visited in time for the Beer Fest so the guys took advantage of that too. There’s certainly something for everyone to enjoy here. 

What was really unique about this visit is that we also got to cool-off at Aquatica after we were done. This was a neat experience and perfect for the Texas summer heat. We enjoyed the wave pool, lazy river and splash pad area. We finished off our trip by meeting up with more family that night and heading to a local Miniature Golf course, which was also a lot of fun too. 

This is what we did as a family, but I am curious to hear what you have done or would do if in San Antonio. Leave me a comment with your suggestions 🙂

Trendy Thursday LinkUp + Stripes are Always In!

Stripes are always in! And these my friends are some of my favorites. When I saw this top, I immediately added it to my cart. While, I don’t usually spend much on t-shirts this once was worth every penny (it’s under $40, don’t let me scare you). I have wore it quite a bit and this is just one of the looks. I also wore it with my denim skirt and shorts. I’ll make sure to share other ways to wear this gorgeous tee. In the meant time, I’ll leave you the link below so that you can check it out, along with other items in my look. 🙂

Trendy Thursday LinkUp + Fall(ing) in Love with Pops of Red

Have you noticed a red trend on the blog lately? This is the second red look I’ve shared with you in a matter of week! I guess I’m loving pops of red lately, and wonder if I will continue on this trend… Either way, I thought I’d share this pretty red top with you.

I love the fabric, it’s pretty breezy. The tie front detail and the color, of course. I paired it with my favorite high waisted jeans – which made me chuckle because I used to love low rise jeans for the longest. I’m not sure when that changed but high-rise is the way to go. 🙂 I shared the Mocs before and will likely share them over and over as it starts to cool down.
