Cactus Wall 🌵


Okay how adorable is this wall?! I saw this and knew I needed to go find it. 🌵 Linnea & I realized that we had hit our 3 year Friendaversary on Facebook this week, so we set off to find the wall to celebrate.

This fun mural is located a few blocks away from Emporium Pies in the Bishop Arts district of Dallas. In fact, if you are facing Emporium Pies & you look to your right, you can see it. It’s so fun & pretty. Not pictured in this post- the scary armadillo and bunny that were part of the mural. 😂

We took fun pictures and then headed to Emporium Pies to obviously eat pie for breakfast. It was a great date.

Oh and I love how comfortable, lightweight, and  cute this chambray midi is! Perfect for a Texas  summer. I’m putting links down below in case you want to be as comfortable as me. They’re on sale, too. For under $20. 😋 Ugh. I think I may need to get the other one now, too…

XOXO,

Joy Macarons


We have been trying to make it out to Joy Macarons forever. So when Linnea & I ended our dinner date & Joy was across the street, we knew it was meant to be. 

They were so delicious & of course super photogenic. Here were the flavors we got:

  • Red – Rasberry
  • Pink – Rose and Lychee
  • Yellow – Lemon Fleur de Sel
  • Green – Pistachio
  • Blue – Almond
  • Purple – Honey and Lavender 

Macarons are so yummy! I have had a few lessons from my friend in DC, but I have been wanting to try to make them on my own. If anyone has any good recipes to follow, let me know!

Xoxo,

Alyse
