An evening at the Austin Trail of Lights

I needed a mental health weekend to clear my mind, so this past weekend included a small getaway to Austin with my boyfriend. This trip to Austin was on my list of things to do before Christmas, because of the annual Austin Trail of Lights at Zilker Metropolitan Park. I’m the first to say I’m not big on holidays but something about Christmas lights brings me solace and happiness.

Each display at the Austin Trail of Lights are by different Austin based companies and are made up of a variety of characters from book characters to pop culture characters. Two of my favorite displays were the Winnie the Pooh and The Little Mermaid. Winnie the Pooh has a special place in my heart, because I grew up watching The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. And The Little Mermaid reminds me of my red headed niece. Another display that caught my eye, was the upside down Christmas trees. It definitely touched on the Keep Austin Weird mantra.

As you walk through the trail, you’ll find three different covered walkways that are perfect for group photos or a selfie, like the one I took. The covered walkways are just a small portion of the 2 million lights that light up the trail. One of the biggest things lighting up the trail is the ferris wheel, which is beautiful, but the long line deterred me from wanting to get on. My boyfriend and I headed straight to the food vendors to grab a delicious funnel cake (not pictured).

After completing the trail, I had to take a picture of it against the Austin skyline. The view was beautiful and it brought me some peace. Basically, my mental health weekend was accomplished! If you need some time to escape and clear you mind, I highly recommend a visit to the Austin Trail of Lights.

 

Cute Concert Merch from Kim Petras

A month ago, I got to see my lord and savior Kim Petras for the second time in my life! The queen was on her Clarity Tour and she just knocked it out of the park with her performance. Mama know how to put on a show and she also knows how to come up with some cute merch!

I literally went crazy at the merch table and spent about $90, but I had to have her merch! One T-shirt in particular caught my eye when I looking up her merch on Twitter: The Kim Petras holding a koala T-shirt. The meme-worthy T-shirt needed to be copped and copped I did.

I usually refrain from wearing white, because I don’t find it flattering on me. But the moment I put on the tee, I loved it! The fabric is soft and the fit wasn’t tight, which I like. I’ve been tucking in my tees lately and this one looks good tucked in. In this look, I paired the tee with some dad fit jeans from Urban Outfitters and some classic Converse.  The look was perfect for a cool, sunny Saturday.

If you’re looking to cop some merch from Kim Petras. I definitely recommend! The quality and creativity is there! Check out her merch store here, if you aren’t seeing her on tour.

A day at the San Antonio Botanical Garden

I’ve lived in the city of San Antonio for over 4 years, and it still amazes me how there is so much I’ve yet to see. Enter the San Antonio Botanical Garden. I’ve been to the grounds two years in a row for an annual Alfred Hitchcock movie screening, but this past Sunday was my first time exploring the garden. It was such a great experience! I was in awe and confused why I hadn’t visited sooner.

My boyfriend and I headed down the San Antonio Botanical Garden walking trail, stopping by and seeing the different trees and plants on the way and first found ourselves at small cottages. Each cottage had a different type of front yards. My favorite was the pink cottage with the Spanish themed garden.

We continued on the trail and found ourselves at the Lucille Halsell Conservatory, which consisted of five glass dome type structures. Each structure had different types of plants from the deserts, tropical areas and more. The area also had some eye catching, geometric sculptures sprinkled around a small pond.

As we continued along the trail, we almost made the mistake of thinking we saw it all. We then came across an area that was cultivated to look like the East Texas Pineywoods. The area was like heaven! Pineywood trees surrounded a lake and it felt like you were transported to beautiful East Texas. It was probably the area we stayed the longest at, because it was so peaceful. I definitely recommend visiting it. It honestly won me over. I would visit the San Antonio Botanical Garden over and over just for the East Texas area.

If you haven’t been to the San Antonio Botanical Garden, I suggest you make a trip soon. It’s perfect for a fall visit!
