A Day at Texas Tulips


It's officially spring time here in Dallas and I am thriving in this weather! Last week, before we were asked to self quarantine, McCray and I took a day trip to Pilot Point to visit Texas Tulips and had the best time! If you get the opportunity, I highly recommend going with your friends.

When you walk in the gate there is a station where you can pick out your flower basket- how cute!

What is the price like?
The entry fee at Texas Tulips is $5 per person (the price is the same for kids) and there is a field to park in with free parking.


 Can you pick the tulips?
Yes! You get a basket once you come in the gate and you can pick all the tulips you want. It is $2.50 per tulip and they wrap them before you leave in a tissue paper color of your choice and put them in gel that will preserve them until you get home.




 What facilities are available at the field?
There is a concession stand where you can grab a snack and drink and picnic tables where you can enjoy them. There are also a few restrooms (we were disappointed to discover that they are just porta potties) by the entrance to the field.



When are the open?
They are open Monday-Sunday 10:00 am-8:00 pm from mid February to the end of March/early April.




Are pictures allowed?
Yes pictures of all kinds are allowed. We brought my camera and had so much fun taking pictures all day. However, if you are planning to bring a professional photographer for wedding, senior, or family pictures etc. there is a $25 day pass you must purchase. 



What do you recommend I bring?
Bring a camera! The flowers make the perfect backdrop/prop for fun pictures. I also recommend sunglasses and sunscreen. There was a really nice breeze the whole time we were there but one thing I didn't think about was the sun burn I would suffer once we left, I'm still a little red!


Anything else I should know before going?
The paths through the field are dirt so if you're going right after a storm it will be very muddy so rain boots might be a good idea!


Happy Spring!

11 Fashion Documentaries Free to Watch with Amazon Prime

I found my love for fashion documentaries in fashion design class my senior year of high school. While searching for a movie to watch on Amazon Prime the other night I hit the jackpot of fashion documentaries and wanted to share my findings with you. So far this is the only streaming service I have found that has a pretty good selection. There are more on Amazon but today I am just sharing the ones that are free to watch. I also haven't watched many of these yet so I don't know how good all of them are so hopefully they are all worth the watch.

Trend Tracking: White Sneakers

White sneakers are so trendy and can be worn with almost anything in your closet. Today I have rounded up six pairs of white sneakers that I found while online shopping.

My Recent Purchases

Around this time last year I shared a blog post about the items I had recently purchased and everyone seemed to love it. I've done a little bit of random shopping this summer to prepare for college, to expand my work wear wardrobe, and have also found a couple of things while out having fun with my friends. I have been too busy to give each look/item their own post so I thought we would bring back My Recent Purchases for round two so I can share these fun items.

Plan With Me

Today I am sharing my agenda spread for last week. I filmed a video putting it together and talked about the different supplies I used to put it together and I love the way it turned out.

Life Lately Vol. 7

It has been an eventful couple of months for me! I have been so busy with school and fun activities with friends I haven't had much time to think about updating the blog. I thought it would be good to share a little life update with you.
