What I Wore In New York City

Hi friends! After 10 glorious days in New York with my little family we are back home in Houston. I plan on sharing all of the kid friendly things that we did in New York next week but I wanted to share all of the outfit details asap because I am getting so many messages from you guys since I totally failed at linking everything in real time. πŸ™
I am so sorry!

Typically during New York Fashion Week I shoot with Banavenue Photography so I have everything linked for you prior to posting, but this time around it was Fashion Week/family vacation so I was really trying to balance my work load and really not work too much after my meetings. Clearly, I failed and decided I wasn’t going to link anything in time, ha! But making it up to you today and sharing all outfit details below!

Another most asked about topic, “what Chanel bag did I get?!” Sadly, I didn’t end up bringing one home. *insert ugly cry here. This is the bag I want. The medium, calf skin boy bag with silver metals. Neither Bergdorf or Chanel on 5th Ave had it. They had the small, they had the new medium, they had the one with the gold metal detail but not the one I wanted! Waahh! Of course, both sales representatives offered to order it for me but that’s not the same LOL. This will be my first Chanel handbag purchase and I just pictured checking out and angels singing as the salesman handed it to me πŸ™‚ Is that too much to ask for? LOL. So I’ll have to swing by another Chanel store before my husband changes his mind, haha!

I’ll be sure to share with you all once I get my hands on it!

If you have any questions about sizing on any of the outfits I shared, feel free to comment here or email me at info@roselynweaver.com.

5th Year Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas-Wood

Happy February 15th my loves! Today Brandon and I celebrate 5 years of marriage and I couldn’t be more in love with him!

If you have been reading the blog for some time now you know that I really enjoy following the traditional gifts calendar for gift giving inspiration. If you missed the past few years you can find those posts here, here and here. According to the traditional calendar, the customary gift for year 5 is wood. Since I gave Brandon his gift this morning I figured I could finally share with you guys what he got this year plus 4 other great ideas for a fifth anniversary!

wood-anniversary-gift-ideas
  1. Date Night Bucket List– I thought this was such a cute gift idea! They are basically like popsicle sticks with date night ideas on them. Once you do the activity on the stick you can write the date on the back so you guys can keep them forever.
  2. Wine Cork Holder – I love that you can get them in all state shapes. I thought this would be fun to do if you both were wine lovers!
  3. Reclaimed Wood Cityscape – I love a personalized gift! There are so many good ones out there but I especially like this reclaimed wood idea for a gift for the men.
  4. Wood Cuff Links – Also a great personalized gift! What a sweet idea to put your wedding song lyrics or vows on there.
  5. Coasters – You could do the city you live in or all the places you both loved visiting together.

Can you guess which gift I gave Brandon? Just kidding. I won’t make you guess! I gave him number 3. The reclaimed wood with the Houston cityscape. It is personalized with “The Weavers”. I thought this was such a great gift being that our love story and family all has grown in Houston.

Obviously, it was too big to sneak into my suitcase so I had to print it out and put it in his card. I’ll show you guys ours as soon as we get home! In addition to the traditional gifts I get him every anniversary I can’t help but get him other gifts too. If you know me, you all know gift giving is like one of my top 10 favorite things to do in life! πŸ™‚ Plus he totally deserves it! I got him a University of Houston Jacket and baby Weaver got a matching University of Houston Jersey. I also bought him these Rayban glasses because baby broke his, lol. And my most favorite thing to shop for this year was this Gucci tie. He wears ties all the time and doesn’t have any designer ones so he absolutely loved it and was so surprised!

We get to spend a few more days having fun in the city. Baby Weaver and I may even convince Brandon to take a horse carriage ride around Central Park today πŸ™‚ I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I hope it was helpful! Please let me know if you have any questions!

New York City Agenda

Happy Monday! I hope you all had an amazing weekend! We have had a great time in New York so far. Even in the colder weather I love this city so much! We will actually be here for a total of 10 days so I figured it would be fun to share with you what our plans are while we are here!

Every year for our wedding anniversary Brandon and I like to visit somewhere new. You might be thinking, “you guys have been to New York before”. Well yes, that is true. But because my husband is the most amazing person on the planet, he agreed to go to New York this year due to a ton of meetings that I needed to attend this week. We originally planned that I would go just for a few days, come home and then we would fly out to somewhere new to celebrate our anniversary but honestly having to leave Brandon and baby for another weekend would be a lot so we decided the whole family is doing fashion week, haha!

So we are here for a total of 10 days. Our actual anniversary is on Friday, February 15th. I have tried to schedule all of my meetings on the same days so that we have most days to do family stuff and then days I do have just one or two meetings, baby and Brandon are coming with me and just hanging out around the area until I’m done and then we will continue on exploring and doing family stuff! Man, Brandon is such a trooper I swear. Baby too! I am so lucky I get to do life with them. I told Brandon if he needs some alone time, I am happy to take the baby on a mommy and me date so he can relax, lol. I know it’s a lot taking a toddler through a busy city! We got our first hand experience on having to carry a stroller with a sleeping baby in it up and down the stairs to get to the subway. I don’t know know how people do that on the daily. New Yorkers make it look so easy and Brandon and I are all out of breath, haha! I mean, I know we probably could have taken out him out of the stroller but you mama’s know I ain’t messing with nap time!

A lot of my girlfriends were here for fashion week through the weekend so I am glad I got to link up with them too! Saturday I met up with the girls for breakfast at The Plaza and then the rest of Saturday and Sunday were family days πŸ™‚ Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday I have meetings so it is going to be a bit hectic but so worth it. I’ll share as much as I can on stories regarding meetings, family fun and we even have 2 dates planned!

Also, exciting news! I will be taking over the Gibson Instagram account on Tuesday so it would be so fun if you followed along there too! You can find their account here.

Gibson International Women’s Day Collection

Good morning love bugs! Omg, today I am so excited to share another “pinch me” moment for RoselynWeaver.com. A few months ago I received an email that literally made me scream at my desk. After the initial almost fell out of my chair reaction, I thought to my self “holy cow, I hope they sent this email to the right person?”. I decided to jump on the requested call immediately before they changed their mind, lol.

The call was with Gibson, a clothing brand I have followed and love, and the email/call was asking me to partner up with them to design a piece of clothing to be launched on International Women’s Day exclusively at Nordstrom. What???!!! I was shook. I still have goosebumps writing this!

They wanted to partner up on designing an item that represented my style and that would be sold at Nordstrom, Nordstrom.com and would be named Roselyn. Again, WHAT?! Okay at this point I realized they did, in fact, email the right person, lol. Clearly I said YES!!!

Why International Women’s Day?

The importance around this day has gained so much traction and for good reason! Gibson and Nordstrom are showing how much they stand behind this celebration by partnering up with 9 influencers who, in their words, “bring the International Women’s Day theme to life, #balanceforbetter”. We were chosen because of the businesses we have built as driven women, the (much needed) diversity we bring to the industry and for the fact that we are using our platforms not just to grow a business but to truly make an impact in people’s lives in so many different ways.

Who are the other influencers involved?

You are going to love each and every one of these women, I just know it! Linking everyone’s blog below so you can get to know them more!

Hoang -KimColor & Chic
Erin β€“ Living in Yellow
Chelsea β€“ LoweCo Petite
Lindsey β€“ The Mother Chic
Ruthie β€“ Ruthie Ridley Blog
Rebecca β€“ Mommy in Heels
Thamarr β€“ Musings of a Curvy Lady
Mindy β€“ Mindy Cityy E

When does the collection launch?

Exactly one month from today! March 8th on International Women’s Day. We have all been working so hard behind the scenes for the past few months for this!

What does the “Roselyn” item look like?

Unfortunately I cannot share that yet but I can tell you that it’s so dang cute and it is something that I think you guys will love based on what you have been loving from the blog in the past! I think you guys will love the entire collection as each of the influencers involved are so stylish and each piece really represents each of their styles.

Giving Back

Another amazing thing about this collection is that Gibson/Nordstrom has allowed each of the influencers to choose an organization of their own that will received a donation from the sales. I chose Arms Wide Adoption. As most of you know, this is the agency that we used through our adoption process. Baby Weaver has been the most precious gift ever given to us and the people at Arms Wide Adoption work hard every day to bring families happiness like they have brought to us. I will go into more detail about exactly where that money goes in another post but I did want you all to know that a % from each of your guys’ purchase from this collection will be given to a special, hand selected organization.

Ahhhh, I am still over the moon you guys! It has been so hard keeping this from you! I am excited I can finally share and I am really, really looking forward to sharing the whole collection with you.

March 8th friends!! I’ll keep you all posted with any sneak peeks we can share. Please let me know if you have any questions and be sure to check out the other women that are included in this launch. All of their links are above!

Beauty Product I Am Loving: Skinceuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier

I am so thankful that I am able to try out different beauty and skincare products as part of my job here on RoselynWeaver.com. We get sent tons of products; some drug store prices and some a little more expensive. I am very picky on what I share with you all because I know there are so many options out there for you guys and if you are anything like me, you have spent so much money on trying new products that don’t work so it is extremely important to me to only share products that I truly love and what truly worked or works for me.

The Skinceuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier has been a game changer for my skin. Especially in this brutally cold weather and the fact that my skin has been so dehydrated lately.

the-best-hyaluronic-acid-serum

Why is Hyaluronic Acid important?

In general, Hyaluronic Acid is a moisture-binding ingredient that helps keep the the skin plump and hydrated. It fills in wrinkles and promotes collagen production for long lasting youthful skin.

I have been using this since last September. I started using it religiously each day, mixing it in with my daily moisturizer and even though I immediately felt a hydrating difference on my face, I started actually seeing the results about 5 days in. I don’t know about you guys, but I call that a win!

My skin type is more on the dry side but the Skinceutical site states that this product is great for all skin types: dry, oil and combination.

Because this product is a bit of a splurge I started to cut back on my daily use so that I could make the product last longer, haha. #ballinonabudget I now use it about every 2 days and mix it in with my night cream so that my skin can fully absorb it through the night. Again, I have been using this since September so the serum has lasted some time now. You really only need about 2-3 drops added into your palm with your day or night time moisturizer.

I can’t recommend this product enough! If you try it or are already fan I would love to hear!

I felt like I needed to dedicate a post to all my single gals out here! As we head into a month that is all about celebrating love (plus it’s our wedding anniversary) I thought what more perfect time than now to share a little bit of my rocky road to love, haha! I always rave about how amazing my husband is (because he totally is!) but it was not smooth sailing to get here!

Some of you caught my Instagram story last month where I shared a little about my previous relationship. I received so many messages that people appreciated me sharing that so I wanted to put it here.on my blog. where it’s probably going to stay permanently so that all my single gals can read it, laugh and just relate to it all together after a bad date or break up.

See, before Brandon, I was engaged. It was young love and it all happened so fast that I had no doubt he was the one. We dated for about a year and a half and stayed engaged for another year. I don’t really share this but he’s the reason I moved to Houston. Well fast forward to 2012. He ended up being an alcoholic. There were more instances than I can count where he would just be gone for days at a time. I had no idea where he was, he would just turn off his phone and I would just go into work with my engagement ring on and people would ask me how wedding planning was going and I would be like “oh it’s going great”. NOT.

I vividly remember one of the many times he told me he was going to stay out of the bars. I don’t have a problem with going to a bar you guys but this was an every day routine. He would get off of work at 7am and a bar is where you would find him. Anyway, I remember one time when he told me he was going to stay out of bars that week. I was heading home from work, pumping gas and I see his truck pull into the bar across the street. So naturally, I call him and I’m like “hey I’m heading home, where are you?”. He replied “at the grocery store”. I immediately hung up and I drove right across the street and walked into where he was. Clearly all of the “regulars” knew who I was and my ex must have shared that he wasn’t supposed to be there because everyone just looked at me in complete shock when I walked in. It was like dead silence.

My ex got up, walked out and drove off. He didn’t drive home though. It was about 3 days until I even heard from him again.

For the last 6 months of our relationship we dealt with similar instances off and on. Everything would be going good and then something would happen that triggered an argument and then he would be #gonegirl. Well, I guess in this case, #goneboy.

It took me about 6 months to finally start thinking clearly. Previous to that I think I spent too much time reflecting on when our relationship was actually good and then for a while I started feeling like I couldn’t leave him in this condition. Who would help him break through his addiction if not me?

I will always remember this one morning waking up after about 5 days of not hearing from him and I didn’t have that feeling of “I hope he’s okay” like I had felt every other time. That was a moment of clarity. I hadn’t heard from my fiance for 5 days and I didn’t even care. That was definitely an eye opener telling me “it’s time to go”. It took me several months to get to that point. Up until then I was just making excuses for him and our relationship.

That day I rented a Uhaul, I packed up all of my stuff, moved in with my sweet friends and the rest is history. Well, sort of. He finally called me about a week later to ask where I was. I imagine that was the first time he had come home and saw my things missing. He had a lot of not-so-nice things to say to me at that point for “just up and leaving”. Trust me, I know I am not perfect but I knew that I deserved more.

Thank you, next.

Fast forward to 2013. Brandon and I’s friendship turned into so much more and now here we are, 2019, happily married and with the sweetest son. I’m not sure why we go through certain things in life but I am certain and can share from experience that it makes you appreciate things so much more and makes that happily ever after that much sweeter.

For my single girlfriends who have had your share of bad relationships, that prince charming is coming. That bad experience is a part of your story that you can laugh about later…I promise you’ll laugh later.

Enjoy that time you have as a single gal. Remember your worth. You know what you are capable of giving and you know what you deserve. If that person isn’t giving you exactly that?….thank you, next.

Faux Fur Camo Coat

It’s goin’ down faux real πŸ™‚ Today I am sharing this really cozy, faux fur camo coat plus what our weekend plans are!

trendy-camo-coat
roselyn-weaver-faux-fur-coat

Outfit Details: Coat: Forever 21 | Tee: Nordstrom | Denim: Nordstrom |
Handbag: DSW | Sunglasses: Quay | Heels: DSW

This coat is so incredibly soft and I love the feminine twist on the camo. I am wearing my normal size medium and it fits perfectly. I styled it with heels and denim here but I think it would be so cute with leggings and your favorite sneakers too! Also, you know what is so awesome about the raw hem trend? The fact that you don’t have to pay to get them hemmed. You can simply cut the length of your jeans yourself and voila! perfect fit.

We are currently in some of our coldest days in Houston and if I’m being honest I don’t like it, lol. I mean I like visiting cold places but when we have to run errands in the cold, windy weather? No thank you! I thought we weren’t supposed to have to deal with that in Houston!

Are you guys having a great month so far? I sure hope so! January has been so jam packed for us that I didn’t even realize I was going to be out of town for every weekend in January except for one. The first weekend was spent with some of my favorite mama friends in Charleston, the second was with my dear family celebrating my Mom (I already miss them all so much!) and this weekend I am heading to New Orleans to spend some time with the Texas DSW Style Squad. Eeek, I cannot wait to spend some quality time with them, work a little and celebrate a lot! The DSW opportunity has been one of the highlights of my blogging career and honestly meeting each one of these girls is up there too so I am excited to see everyone!

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week and are feeling so inspired to do that thing you always wanted to do. Remember you are only 23 days into the year so if you have already slacked a little on that goal you set out for yourself, it’s okay girl. Give yourself some grace. Today is a new day and we can start strong all over again. The important thing is to not give up.

5 Ways To Be A Better Coworker

Would you agree that your coworkers totally make a difference on whether you love coming into work or not? Totally. So why not be that person that makes people want to come to work? The person that brightens up someones day just by them seeing you. Not the debbie downer that they try to avoid in the hallway. Maybe that’s a bit harsh but reality is there is always that one person. Don’t be that one person sister.

Throughout my years in different work environments and in the corporate world I have come to admire some of my colleagues, past and present. These are the people that I love running into during the work day and they just inspire me to always look on the bright side even on the most stressful of days. I’ve learned to take a lesson or two from them in this area and I feel like I have almost mastered the art of being a good coworker. πŸ™‚ Today I am sharing 5 ways you can be a better coworker and in return will most likely create the best work environment for yourself.

Outfit Details: Dress: Forever 21 | Heels: DSW (on repeat) | Handbag: DSW (also the one you see my carrying like everyday)


5 Ways To Be A Better Coworker

  1. Offer A Helping Hand – do you see someone carrying a pile of stuff trying to get the door open? Open the door or offer to carry something for them. Do you notice your colleague looking stressed and overwhelmed? Ask them if there is anything you can do to help. More often than not they will say no but just asking will make them feel so much better.
  2. Be A Calming Influence – back to seeing a colleague stressed, be the calming influence. I know we all get stressed, it’s inevitable in the work place but be the person someone can come to stressed and then leave feeling like “I got this”. How can you do that? Well, first of all you can let them vent a bit and then help them talk through all of the tasks that will help them achieve whatever they are trying to accomplish. It is human nature to get stressed over the bigger picture and deadlines but when we lay out the small tasks and do everything step by step it’s easier to make that end goal realistic. Sometimes people need someone to help them get there. That’s where YOU, A+ in co-working come in! πŸ™‚
  3. Do Not Gossip – not much to explain here. Just don’t partake in office gossip. Assume it’s all #fakenews and don’t get involved.
  4. Learn The Art of Small Talk – Yes, small talk is art and let’s emphasize on the word small. I think it’s important for you to get to know your coworkers because it helps build another level of respect for one another and I personally think it helps you understand better ways to work together, however, do not be the over talker that people regret running into. Again, I know that’s harsh but these stereotypes truly exist. Be intentional with your conversations and sensitive of people’s valuable time. You want someone to want to talk to you and not walk away thinking “that was a waste of 30 minutes”.
  5. Spread The Positive Vibes – this could be as small as making sure to smile and say hello to everyone you encounter that day and as big as bringing in a batch of cookies for everyone on your team or floor “just because”. People’s attitudes and energy are contagious. Make sure yours is worth catching.

Do you practice these 5 tips at the workplace? I’d love to hear what other tips you have on being the best coworker you can be!

Girls Weekend in Charleston, South Carolina

I can’t believe it has already been 2 weeks since our girls trip to Charleston. We had such a great time and came back with so many memories! If you are looking for a place to visit with your gal pals I would highly recommend Charleston. Today I am sharing where we stayed, where we ate and what we did! Oh and all of the outfit details, of course!

girls-weekend-charleston

Shop these looks:

It was my first time in Charleston and I always heard about how charming it was and now I totally get it! It was one of the most charming cities I have ever been to and I would go back in a heartbeat. Also, my middle brother was born there so before I left for the trip my parents were telling me all of the things they remembered from there so as we biked through the town I just imagined them walking through the city with my brothers as kids and that made this trip that much sweeter.

Where We Stayed:

Zero George hooked us up with the private Garden Suite which was just about as charming as the whole city of Charleston. We had our own little house that was complete with a living room and I can’t forget about the complimentary wine, cheese and 24 hour espresso service! I cannot recommend Zero George enough. The staff was so kind and accommodating. The property was as cute as can be and so close to everything that we were able to bike from the hotel to all of the spots we wanted to see. Oh and the pre-dinner cocktails we had at Zero Restaurant + Bar were pretty great too. πŸ™‚

What We Ate:

Aside from eating all the cheese boards and drinking all the coffee from Zero George, we stopped at a few delicious hot spots during our girls weekend in Charleston.

Breakfast at Millers All Day – I had the frittata which was yummy and the restaurant reminded me of a place you would see in Palm Springs. So cute!

Brunch at One Broad Street

Dinner at Husk – I had the NC Chicken dinner which was okay. Honestly, I think this restaurant is a bit overrated as it is always on everyone’s top places to eat in Charleston and apparently it’s super tough to get a reservation there. For that reason, it’s worth saying you’ve been there but if you can’t get a reservation during your visit to Charleston, don’t feel too bad.

Dinner at The Darling Oyster Bar– OMG, I wish I had a picture of the crispy fried chicken that Margret and I shared. It was SO good and one plate is definitely plenty enough for two people! The atmosphere was super cute and the cocktails were legit.

Sweet Treat at Jeni’s – We stopped by during our bike ride back to the hotel to satisfy our sweet tooth cravings. I had the salted caramel ice cream and it was delicious!

What We Did:

I loved that we walked and biked through Charleston all weekend. The only time we took an uber was to dinner each night because it was pretty chilly at night. Zero George provides first come, first serve, complimentary bikes which was another plus from our hotel stay. I would recommend biking or walking through the city because there are so many charming houses each way you look and that is the only way you can take it all in. FYI- you can get fined $500 for biking on the sidewalk. I wish someone would have told us the first day, haha.

King Street – surprisingly we all had intentions of shopping but I think only Jessica bought something. We sure did window shop in Gucci though but we all came out empty handed. King Street has a ton of chain stores as well local boutiques.

Charleston City Market – The city market is a must when visiting Charleston. Such a great place to grab souvenirs as all of the items found at the Historic Charleston City Market are certified authentic Made in Charleston items.

Republic – Our sweet new friend Hillary recommended that we go to Republic for some night life fun. If I’m being totally honest, Rebekah and I were just trying to run into the Southern Charm cast, haha. We actually got there right after dinner which was probably pretty early #momlife but Republic ended up giving us bottle service which started that visit off pretty great and we got to dance the night away.

The Battery – The gorgeous and huge houses along the peninsula are definitely a must see. Apparently these homes were built by some of the wealthiest families in the city and I’m not surprised.

Waterfront Park and Pineapple Fountain- I am so glad Margret brought us by here on our last day. It was just a quick stop on our bike ride back to the hotel but the fountain is always something I see on Southern Charm so that’s pretty important to me, haha! This area has a great view of the harbor and would be such a great spot to let your little one run around if traveling to Charleston with your family.

Rainbow Row- The iconic Charleston site is a series of houses near the water front painted bright pastel colors. Again, another charming stop and must see in the city in my opinion.
