Red Wine Hot Chocolate with Winc

Everything is better with a splash of wine including holidays! In my case, I get my wine from Winc! A monthly subscription that allows you to taste and explore with wine. It shows up on your door steep hand delivered and you can check out what’s coming ahead of time on your Winc account. Go to Winc.com to get started and use code “authenticallyb” for an amazing discount!

Here’s a fun hot chocolate recipe that can act as a desert or pre-dinner sip. I like this red wine recipe because it’s delicious and super simple. I didn’t even have to go to the store for the ingredients. Even my wine from Winc showed up on my door step. Everything else was already in my pantry. Red wine hot chocolate is super rich so I opted to serve them in miniature cups along with a bite of chocolate. Large servings could be too over powering to the palate. Have fun with this and let me know what you think after you make it! Enjoy!

Fashion X HOUSTON 

Thank you Koh Gen Do for inviting me out to join behind-the-scenes for Fashion X HOUSTON. I was busy with work and life so I was unable to see the 1st and 2nd night of fashion but the final night of Fashion X HOUSTON did not disappoint. It was filled with talented designers that poured their hearts and souls into every single garment that came down the runway. I had to skip out right at the intermission so not all of the designers that presented are shown in this post. 

What I enjoyed the most is being amongst so many smiling faces both familiar and new. Everyone looked beautiful and the positive energy matched the prints, stunning colors, and unique designs that hit the runway. Enjoy!

Feminist T-shirt + Lace Skirt

What says girl power more than a graphic tee that tells you that “the future is female!?”

The answer to that is NOTHING! I’m so smitten over this casual look that is ultra feminine that shows so much strength. It is not bright and colorful  but the text on the tee definitely catches your attention. The lace on the skirt screams “girly girl” while the sneakers tell you that “she’s ready to take on the world!” (Or just some brunch and shopping (-:)

As for accessories, I wanted to go with sparkly stones in my earrings to add to the feminine side of this look. The purse and lip color is the pop of color in this outfit. (I had to put the color in somewhere) Let me know what you think of this look!

Enjoy!
