Getting in my Bella(Greens)

Hey Fab Babes!

I hope you are all having an AMAZE week so far! I have been so busy catching up on collaborations and scheduling content since I got back from Toronto but I know you are all going to L O V E all the exciting things coming to Basic Blogger B*tch.

Now you all know I am super into clean eating and living my healthiest life, before the haters bring up all the donuts and splurges I have calm yo self because it’s called BALANCE okay! Everyone needs to treat themselves but the majority of the time I strive to eat the cleanest and most whole foods possible, which is why I am obsessed with the new restaurant I discovered in Houston.

The top dish is the Turkey Burger with reg fries and the bottom is the Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries.

Bellagreen has become my MUST eat spot in Houston. They have locations all around Houston and surrounding areas which makes it super easy to try them no matter what area you are living in or visiting.

They only use fresh, whole foods in all of their dishes. Everything is made from scratch and it is all organic. They also can modify any of their dishes to be gluten free, dairy free, Keto, Paleo, and more. Basically any way you would like it modified they can do it!

I definitely, 100%, HIGHLY recommend trying Bellagreen to anyone living in Houston or visiting. But fear not Dallas babes, Bellagreen is set to open THREE locations in DFW in the upcoming months. Two in Plano and one in Dallas, so you will have your chance to try them soon!

PermaVista Ranch Adventure

Hey There Babes!

Last week I was invited to stay at PermaVista ranch so I could review my stay and I am beyond excited to share it with you guys! Work was never so much fun ;) So lets get into it!

When I first arrived at the ranch I couldn't believe this little gem was hiding in the fields of Brenham, Texas. I spent countless summers a few towns over and had never heard of or seen the ranch before until I was there myself.

The visit started with a tour of the house and grounds. Ruth showed me every inch of the house and answered all the questions I had happily.

I was so impressed with how well every room was designed and decorated. The details were perfect in every single one.

After the tour I had I headed up to my room to change before dinner, then I explored the grounds a little and made a new furry friend ;) Also that pool was calling my name y'all, it had an attached hot tub for those chilly nights too ;)

I had some fun and then it was time for dinner. The food at PermaVista was definitely one of the highlights. I have never had authentic, homemade Chicken Mole before so that was fun to try and it didn't disappoint! Obviously ice cream is always the right choice for dessert and was the perfect end to a delicious dinner.

While digesting that amazing dinner it was time for some classic board game fun in the game room. There are a crazy amount of games to choose from like Scrabble, Taboo, Yatzee, you name it and its probably in there!

After games I changed into these bomb PJs(from TJ Maxx) and I went to explore the house  a little more. I also grabbed a cup of hot chocolate to sip on my explorations and how stinking cute are these Permavista mugs y'all!?!?

The next morning I had a quick but scrumptious breakfast consisting of sausage, pancakes, scrambled eggs, Huevos Rancheros and fresh fruit, before heading down to the barn to get ready for my trail ride!

I am a HUGE horse lover and have been riding since I was 8 so this was definitely right up my alley. I convinced my mom who was with me to also hop on a horse for at least a quick ride through a pasture and she hasn't ridden since she was about 9 so that was going to be interesting to say the least! On my way to the barn I saw this cutie and could resist stopping to show him some love! Plus we were matching so how could I not?

We finally got to the barn and met with the awesome horse trainer Shannon who got our horses, Bella and Ace, ready for my mom and I to take for an easy ride through the pasture before Shannon and I hit the trails. Mom did really well and didn't fall off or get thrown off so I'd say her first ride was a success :P

After a crazy fun trail ride I got changed for a quick workout in the tennis/basketball court to help burn off some of that amazing breakfast ;)

Before we left I had to take a climb up to the top of the "tower" which is this awesome building in the middle of the house. The view was breathtaking and most definitely worth the climb!

Finally my time at PermaVista had come to an end. I honestly have nothing but great things to say about the Ranch and all the wonderful people there. If you are ever looking for the perfect getaway in the fresh country air of Brenham, Texas, Permavista is just waiting for you.

A Free Spirit Wearing Free People~

img_1804.jpg

Hey Guys! How's it going this week for everyone? I'm still getting packed and ready for our big trip on Thursday, if you don't know what I'm talking about you can see the trip deets here>>>>>Shake Shack Dallas! Yes, it is also about burgers but I swear the trip details are in there too :P

I am such a big fan of Free People dresses, they are SO my style. I love the boho, flown vibe they have. Especially this one from Buckle.DSC_1126

IMG_1700IMG_1718

How "springy" is this dress I mean seriously!? The wedges and necklace are also from Buckle, I'm a little obsessed ;) and they pair super well together. IMG_1843IMG_1818DSC_1242

It's the perfect outfit for running errands but still looking like you put WAY more effort into looking presentable than you really did. I mean I am a mess so this just looks like I have my stuff together when I really don't :P DSC_1157IMG_1796IMG_1660IMG_1641

It's also super comfortable, I wore it down to the Dallas Farmers Market and walked around for a few hours. I was 100% comfortable and the wedges didn't hurt my feet at all which was great, Buckle hasn't let me down in the shoe department yet! Also the outfit was perfect for Selfies ;)IMG_1801

Let me know what you think about this OOTD because I love hearing your opinions, also how do you feel about Free People dresses? I kind have a love affair going on with them right now. You can see more pics on my FB Page>>>Alex's FB and my Instagram Don't forget to follow me on all my social media to stay up to date and see all the upcoming travel pics and behind the scene action!
