    Clearly Obsessed! – 5 Clear Heels Under $100

    Happy Tuesday shoesday! Lately I have been obsessed with clear heels, specifically nude colored ones! I purchased my first pair late last summer and LOVE them! They are the perfect height, not too tall and not too short, so that makes them comfortable to wear! They go perfect with a dress or jeans—I have worn with both. When I purchased mine they were on sale and I got such a good deal! Unfortunately, the ones I purchased are no longer available—they are the INC brand at Macy’s. If they return I will most definitely share! So, here are a few other affordable options to choose from: ASOS – Public Desire…

    RAQUEL MCCOMB Blog Turns ONE!

    Happy Blogiversary to me me! You guys, my blog turns ONE today! Wow, one year ago today I decided to launch my blog and hit publish on my first post! I had been thinking about starting a blog for a while but it was a little scary thinking about putting yourself out there so publicly. I remember being so nervous and wondering if anyone would even read but I am so glad that I decided to finally go through with it! I remember trying to decide how long I should purchase my hosting services for and deciding on one year “just in case”. But woah, this year has gone by…

    What’s in my Makeup Bag: Everyday Makeup

    Happy Tuesday friends and welcome to my first post of 2019! I have gotten several questions about my makeup and thought it would be good to share! I am definitely not a beauty or makeup expert just sharing items that I love and use! I have separated by categories, “Everyday” and “Extra”. Items on “Everyday” are items that I definitely use every day (work, etc) and “Extra” are items I use when I want to add a little extra oomph to my look. Everyday: I have been using the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade for a couple of years now and I really like it. A little definitely goes a long way!…

    Morelos Mexico: What To Do While There

    Happy Friday! Can you believe there is only one week left of school here in Houston?! This is the time when families are getting ready to go on their summer vacation and get summer started! Last summer I went back to the State of Morelos, Mexico with my family. My dad is originally from there and I had not been since 2001. Sixteen years since I had not been back! But hey, to my defense we used to go every summer growing up so when I didn’t HAVE to go anymore I didn’t! Not that I did not appreciate it, I just didn’t want to go back every year–I wanted…

    Cinco De Mayo: My Three Go-To Margarita Spots

    Happy Cinco De Mayo eve! Are you ready to fiesta for Cinco De Drinko?! So, as you may or may not already know, Cinco De Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day but rather the commemoration of the Mexican Army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862–Mexican Independence Day is celebrated on September 16th. Cinco De Mayo is mostly celebrated in the United States, I guess you can say it’s more of an American holiday than a Mexican holiday, ha! Basically another excuse to party and drink with a theme! Moving on from the two second history lesson…my three go to margarita spots! These are the…
