Sunnies + Stilettos @ Jimmy Choo

jimmy choo event 4.12.16The 2016 Heroes And Handbags event is just around the corner. Last year I served as the Handbag Co-Chair with my dear friend Anna Kaplan.  In order to help raise additional funds for the Heroes For Children organization this year my bestie and 2015 Event Chair Lori Lemon-Geshay hosted a private shopping event at the Jimmy Choo boutique in the Houston Galleria on April 12th.

Well, don’t ask us twice.  Did you say shoes, shades, and champagne all in the same sentence???  I do not think I shop that often and I am pretty selective.  However, if it benefits a charity I care about I will support the cause.  In between my meetings what a nice break to mix, mingle, and play dress up with friends and supporters.

These logo-etched temples enhance the Italian-made sunglasses.  And, look at the genuine-snakeskin-covered frames with metal in an oh-so-modern cat-eye-inspired silhouette!  I am in love and they will be perfect for my trip to Mexico!

A little shout out to all who attended.  In just 2-hours we managed to create over $12,000 in sales which proceeds will directly benefit Heroes For Children.  Great job shoppers! Thanks for putting your best and I must say “fabulous” foot forward!  For more info on the organization visit www.heroesforchildren.org .


Put your pedal to the metal at Hermann Park!

Fall is the best time of year in Houston.  In order to maximize this great weather here is something fun to add to your outdoors activity list!

Hermann Park near the Medical Center is not just known for its green space and choo choo train.  It is neighbor to the Houston Zoo, Japanese Garden, Miller Outdoor Theater, and several area museums.  However, recently I discovered McGovern Lake and their pedal boat rentals.  What fun!  Rentals are $10 per boat for a half an hour. Up to four people per boat, so it’s a great trip for kiddos too.  It’s open from Monday through Sunday from 11am to 4pm.  It is required to wear one of their ultra chic orange life vests.  Make the best of it!  The water appears to be extremely shallow but good viewing for some little fishies and lots of turtles!
