Texas #GracefulleeTravels Round-Up

If you've been keeping up with me on Instagram or Snapchat (bygracelee) or my FB page, you probably noticed that I was in Houston, Texas last week. I also asked whether I should just update you all on my trip via Snapchat or a travel vlog on my YouTube channel, and you guys suggested I do BOTH. It was a lot of time and effort editing these two videos (part 2 should be up soon!), but I wanted to really share my trip with you readers and have it up in time. :)

I really hope you enjoy this video. I tried to add some humor in there as well. HA. Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE for more videos! You'll also get a notification when I upload PART 2.

P.S. I'm always open to any video suggestions you guys may have. Some of you on Snapchat have requested hairstyle tutorials... keep 'em coming!

And in case you missed these on Instagram and Snapchat...

There's No Party Like A Pajama Party

My best gal pals and I had a fun pajama party shoot a few weeks ago. 
After all the past photoshoots I made had them do with me, I think this one had to be their favorite yet. In the past, we braved freezing temps and bad weather conditions, and I'm pretty sure that wearing pajamas and lounging around on a bed for a shoot is just too good to be true. Am I right? Especially while wearing matchy-matchy PJs from Symbology Clothing. These tanks are on SALE for $25 with matching shorts for $15. The links are at the bottom.

We also may or may not have smacked each other a few times during our pillow fights... ;) HA.
How do you and your girlfriends spend a night in? I'd love to hear your fun ideas!

How To Style Your Bedroom

I'm so excited to finally be sharing my bedroom post that I've been teasing lately on social media. 
I teamed up with Leigh Deux and Studio Mucci to show you a few ideas on how to style your bedroom. Whether it's a dorm room or an apartment, Leigh Deux has some great accent pieces to really make your bedroom your own. I had an idea of what I wanted my bedroom to look like when I moved into my new house last month, and I love seeing it all come together in real life. I'm a firm believer that picking a color theme should come first before choosing out items for your bedroom.

This pouf is one of my favorites. For starters, I've always wanted one. Ha. My best friends love it more than me because that's where they like to sit whenever they come to my room to chat.
P.S. decorate your wall with tassel garlands. I also have one above my desk near my gallery wall, and I love it so much. Studio Mucci has so many assortment of colors and a wide range of options that you can choose from!

Thanks for stopping by!
How is everyone spending the LAST DAY OF JULY?

Bedroom items: headboard | bolster pillow (linen) | bolster pillow (orange) |  throw pillow |  ℅ tassel garlands |  ℅ pouf | Greek key coverlet | duvet |
