MARFA, TX + AN OLAY FOLLOW-UP

06/27/2016

1We returned from our trip to Texas a couple of weeks ago. It was relaxing, inspiring, and therapeutic for so many reasons, both for ourselves and our marriage. We absolutely fell in love with Marfa. So much so that we are already planning our return and this time with our kids in tow. We have friends that have a house there and their kids and ours are inseparable when together.

2Marfa is hot as hell, but it’s a dry desert heat, which makes it a little more bearable in my opinion.

4How cool are these planters? I want to figure out how to recreate something similar at home!

9Ballroom Marfa was one of our favorite art exhibits. There are many in Marfa, but very few that allow cameras.

14It started storming randomly in the afternoon and the sky was the most beautiful pale gray. We stopped on our drive for a rain dance and photo opp!

17The obligatory Prada installation in Valentine. It’s about 30 minutes west of Marfa and is pretty cool.

18My favorite part was the collection of locks behind Prada.

20It was very windy after the storm, which made for some cool photos—we took full advantage.

24Me and my love, tired after a long day of exploring and ready for a good margarita from one of our favorite Marfa spots, Saint George! We will share more photos from our trip very soon!

This wraps up my Olay skincare challenge. It was a fun experience and I am really happy with results. The Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream with SPF 30 is really, really good, light, and also affordable, which is a bonus and also a godsend under the hot Texas sun. And, I think I may have fallen in love with the Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream that I wear at night. I can honestly say that I see a difference in my complexion and I love that I wake with super soft skin come morning time. Again, much more affordable than many other high-end creams that claim to offer similar results. Many women in my family have been using Olay for years, and it was cool to check it out for myself. Thanks Olay!

    Beautiful photography- as always. I also love your outfit! I would never be able to wear white on white, simply because I’m too messy of a person. Love the way it looks though!

    I saw Marfa a few months back on instagram and it looks so amazing! I love the stormy skies – I hate storms, but photos of them are just so perfect haha! I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos – it looks like you guys had the best time!

    Marfa! Such an interesting destination in the middle of nowhere. Ballroom Marfa does have the most interesting contemporary art.
