Let’s Catch Up!

Favorite red, white, and rosé wines?

I usually only drink Red in the fall and winter. 2014 Robert Mondavi Cab is a winner!!! It’ll set you back $175, but it’s definitely worth it.  I’ve noticed that I drink a lot of white in summer, and rosé in the spring.  My favorites being Rosé of Peloursin, and Robert Mondavi has a really good Sauvignon Blanc. It also depends on what I’m eating… It has to pair well with what I’m eating. However, I drink champagne year round!

What is your go to drink when you go out and aren’t trying to TOTALLY go way over your calorie count for the day?

Champagne with St. Germain or Scotch (Glenlivet 18 year) with 3 ice cubes or an ice ball.

You have fab dinner parties. What’s your next dinner party going to be like?

Honestly I’m not sure… I can tell you that we are hosting an E P I C Halloween party at our house this year, and we have a lot of people coming. I’m pretty excited about it. I’m planning the menu now, and writing my list for all the decor we’ll need. I’ll be sure to post about it.

Where do you find healthy recipes?

I don’t really “find” healthy recipes. I just come up with something. I’ve always been a healthy eater. My Mom always made sure that we had fresh fruits and vegetables. I have to admit, I’ve been slacking as of late, but pretty soon I’ll be posting tons more healthy recipes. Probably… Possibly… Maybe…

Riley! Congrats on your engagement! I can’t wait to see everything you wear and did i mention WHAT YOU WEAR?? I’m engaged, and my Fiance and I are back and forth about a spring or fall wedding? What’s your take?

I think it depends on your preference. In Houston it’s either hot, raining, or cold. There is no in between. I think you can do so much with both. If you want a day wedding go with spring. There’s something S O beautiful about the fall though…

Hi Riley? Is your man annoying? I feel like everyone in a happy relationship doesn’t get annoyed with their man or woman?

Is He??? He’s by far the most annoying person ever! I promise, lol. B U T– he’s my best friend, and we’re crazy about each other. I think when you’re in a relationship it’s quite normal to get on each other’s nerves. If someone says or portrays opposite they’re lying! I promise.

Do you have any suggestions for work appropriate clothing at a reasonable price?

Try checking out Loft, or Nordstrom. I usually always go to Club Monaco, but I love Express, and Banana Republic always has a sale. You can probably catch some amazing things at J. Crew. I even hit up Target!

Riley, I love your snapchat, and your new hair, and will be taking a picture to my stylist for a similar cut. How do you style your hair on a daily basis?

Thank you!! I seriously get that question A L L the time. I’ll have to do a video on what I do to my hair when I do actually do it. I think most people would be disappointed. I wash, deep condition and steam my hair once a week or once every other week. Between that time I do absolutely nothing unless I have somewhere to go. I roll out of bed, run my fingers through my hair and go. The rocker beach wave look comes with my hair pattern. To be honest, my hair has been growing fast. I hate having long hair. It’s just way more maintenance.  Really missing my shorter cut… 😢

I have a major sweet tooth, what do you eat when you’re craving sweets?

Eugh, me too! I love airheads, pie, cupcakes, jolly ranchers, I mean… gosh! I literally hate going to my parents house sometimes. They are the most fit people you’d ever meet. They work out EVERY. SINGLE. DAY!- But my mom’s sweet tooth trumps mine, so there’s always something freshly baked. H O W E V E R– I’ve been substituting for fruit! I’m trying to be good.

Favorite nail salons in Houston?

I go to Venice Nail Salon in Sugar Land. They keep my wine glass filled, and my nails on P O I N T! I love this time of the year. I go for dark colors. Black, really dark purples, and deep red’s. I’ll post all my favorite colors for fall.
