Growing up, I used to give my mom so much sass for always buying black and neutral clothing for herself. She'd tell me, "I know it's boring but I love these colors!" I used to think she was nuts because anytime I shopped for myself I went for the more color- the better! In the last few years though, I've realized the method to her madness and realized she wasn't so crazy after all. Neutrals and blacks are so classic and flattering! Now, I immediately gravitate towards any neutral when I shop, it's a no brainer. My mom would laugh at my current closet (which is mostly blacks with only a few pops of color) and say something like "COMO LA MADRE!" which means "like your mother!" in Spanish.Read More
I've been wanting to write more about health & wellness since I devote so much time and energy to it in real life. But there's been a recent shift I have to be honest about, I've been obsessing over the negatives. I know I've shared when I was working out daily, lifting weights and eating super clean and feeling overall like a rockstar but I want to share my struggles too.
I plateaued on my fitness goals a couple months back and I'll be honest it deflated me. I started looking at where my body was in terms of weight and strength and feeling hella disappointed that somehow no matter how hard I tried it seemed like the universe was saying "this is your best you, sorry about your luck!" and I took it real hard. I ate poorly and exercised less. I'd obsess over style bloggers and Instagram celebs with model bodies while sinking further and further into a pit - you know the one. Scrolling thru feeds while the jealously consumed me.Read More
This was my first time taking only my iPhone on a trip and I gotta say I loved it. I know myself and if I would've packed our big camera I wouldn't have remembered or even wanted to take it on outings because it's just such a hassle to lug around. I used a Popsocket on my phone to help me grip it better especially while we were walking, I highly recommend if you have butter fingers like me!
I can't say enough good things about our time in Barcelona...Read More
Our trip to Barcelona and Paris was sooo incredible! Dave and I loved every minute of it. We've never been on a trip for this long and it's rare that we have a trip where we have no obligations and no schedules. It was seriously a dream trip! I made a little iPhone video of part 1 of the trip which was our stay in El Born, Barcelona. We loved the El Born neighborhood so much and I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking to visit Barcelona. This hood is so charming and alive. We could easily see ourselves living there. Like there's been talks! But, maybe not until we're retired?! The amazing food, shopping, architecture and overall vibe of this area was perfect for us. This was my first time trying to document our travels on video and it was challenging but I'm so glad I did it! I hope to keep up the habit of turning pressing record on our future trips. I'll share pictures and some our our favorite bits of Barcelona later this week!
Thank you for reading and watching my humble video!
Hello Friends! I've been a little MIA on my blog recently but for good reason. For one, D & I have been prepping for our 2 week Europe trip that we are currently in the middle of. We're having the BEST time ever! Follow us along on my Instagram (@biancajasmon).
The other reason for the quiet on my blog is that I have been working on this post and I'm so excited to share it with you now! These are some of my favorite walls/murals here in town and I want to make sure you know how to find them so you can get your pics for the gram. My crazy talented and generous friend Elissa illustrated the downloadable map that shows you where all of these walls are located here in Austin, TX.
