WEEKEND NOTES: 5 THINGS

coral-1

This is a big weekend for partying. With Cinco de Mayo and Derby parties a plenty, it’s safe to say I will consuming my fair share of mint juleps and tamales! I am starting off the weekend going to my good friend, Georgina Herrera’s, jewelry show/pre-Cinco de Mayo party at her house, and then I’m ending the weekend with church and a pancake brunch to raise money for their mission trips, and a fun Mother’s Day photoshoot with 1KC.

 

  1. Just added this little dusty blue maxi to my cart.
  2. We watched The Greatest Showman this week, and I can’t stop listening to this song.
  3. I am living in this shirt recently, it’s so comfortable and such a classic.
  4. Want some cheap summer wine for the weekend? Check out my picks here.
  5. Planning a trip to Denver? I’ve got you covered with places to stay, restaurants to not pass up, places to shop, and everything in between via my City Guide.

CITY GUIDE: DENVER

I lived in Denver, Colorado from 2008 until 2012 when I was attending the University of Denver. I completely fell in love with the city. I loved the shopping, the dining, the atmosphere, the people, and, of course, the bevy of activities to do in the area. Last week I returned from another amazing trip to Denver to visit my old stomping grounds and take in the Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. (It was fabulous if you have not been)! Anyway, I decided to put together this City Guide of my favorite places to shop, eat, see, and stay if you are planning a trip to Denver anytime soon!
