A little “PEACE” of Happiness

Quietly tucked away, deep in the woods of Eustace, Texas is what I call a little “PEACE” of happiness; or Cedar Cove Ranch. This 5-star resort is perfect for a getaway with friends and family, fishing, hiking or even a place to host your next big event.

I was recently there celebrating with my sister for her 42nd Birthday, and this was truly a #GirlsTrip to remember. When we drove through those wrought iron gates and made our way down that dirt road, the hustle and bustle of the outside world were all left behind. As we pulled up to The Grand Chateau , we were greeted by Steve, our on site tour guide and overall welcoming committee.

 

This was the perfect backdrop for Chaun Vaughn’s #DaisyDukesAndBoots photo shoot, and all other “instagram worthy” pics. Want to go camping, but don’t want to pitch that tent? This is a GLAMOROUS CAMPING (#Glamping )experience that anyone would enjoy. Don’t believe me? Check some of the pics out below, and make sure you book your stay with Cedar Cove Ranch…………Tell them Fashionably Mimi sent you. 

 

 

Education and Fashion Go Hand in Hand

I have attended a few fashion shows in my day, and they have all given me great ideas on what’s hot and what’s not. Today, I had the pleasure of attending the Ivy Educational & Charitable Foundation of Houston 35th Annual Scholarship Luncheon and Fashion Show. It was very inspiring. Not just because of the killer fashion (which we will talk about later) but because of the commitment that this organization has for the betterment of youth and education. 

The luncheon kicked off with words of motivation. Afterwards, they recognized 19 Scholarship recipients who were gifted with a scholarship between $1500-$2000. Not only did they recognize students who were excelling, they also recognized individuals who are doing great things in the community (as it pertains to education and giving back). 

The models were garbed in Dillard’s (First Colony Mall) apparel from head to toe (frankly, I thought I would be unimpressed). However, they rocked the runway!  There were 4 scenes: Casual, Business, Cocktail, and Formal. From scene 1 until the last model exited the stage, I smiled with pride because these were your everyday, ordinary people modeling these trends. I loved it! This made the fashion show much more enjoyable, because the ladies and gents who walked the runway exuded confidence, enthusiasm and sass! Kudos!

Fashion and Education go hand in hand when it comes to the Ivy Educational Foundation. These ladies aren’t just talking about it, they are actually EMPOWERING, ENCOURAGING, and EDUCATING the youth! 

Check out some of the highlighted fashion below.

Denim and Leather, FASHION REBEL

  
I’ve never been one to play it safe when it comes to fashion! I think the clothes you wear should be just as fun and funky as your personality! That’s why I paired this fun leather skirt (that I picked up from Macy’s) with this funky dirty denim jacket (Sears). Statement Made, #FashionablyMimi style! 

When you wake up and go to your closet in the morning – don’t think traditional, play with your clothes and make something magical happen! I promise you’ll smile all day!
