Manicure Party

Every Tuesday me and a group a friends get together. We always try to do something different. This week I decided to invite them over to my place for a Manicure Party. This is a fun and inexpensive way to have a get together.  

I asked them to bring their favorite nail polish, that way we have a bigger variety of colors. I made red sangria, bought some appetizers and voila we had a great time.

We had a lot of fun sipping sangria while doing each others nails!



Bike Ride to Mission San Jose

I have lived in San Antonio for almost 10 years now and never visited any of the missions, except for The Alamo. 

I like to bike on the Mission Trails which runs along with the San Antonio River on the south side, passing through the Missions. I saw several signs directing to Mission San Jose, so I decided to explore. 

I was wowed by its beauty, who could imagine? This hidden gem, known as the "Queen of the Missions", is the largest of the missions and was built in 1768. The architectural style is Spanish. It has a beautiful church which is currently in service and it is open to public.

The Missions were built to expand Spanish influences in the north of Mexico. They also served to introduce natives into the Spanish society and the catholic church. 

It was a great adventure! If you like to bike and explore new things, I totally recommend this bike ride. Here are some pictures.

Bakery Lorraine

Undoubtedly, Bakery Lorraine has some of the most succulent macarons in San Antonio. These little french pastries are so tasteful that when I had the first bite I thought for a second that I was at LadurĂ©e, a Parisian bakery that features some of the most famous macarons in the world. This small bakery located in 511 E. Grayson Street is owned by husband-and-wife chefs Anne Ng and Jeremy Mandrell.

Bakery Lorraine has been named one of the top bakeries in the US by Eatocracy , Fodor'sTravel, and Conde Nast Travelers  among others.

This bakery also offers other delicious items, such as sandwiches and other types of pastries although its menu changes every day.

Some of their most famous pastries are the Pecan Sticky Bun and the Homemade Pop Tart and of course the macarons, I recommend you to try the Pumpkin Spice, Pistachio, Milk Chocolate and Salted Caramel. Ingredients are seasonal, so better hurry up!

Second Thursday at the McNay

If you happen to like free beer, art, music and street food, Second Thursday is the event for you. 

The McNay Art Museum in San Antonio is one of the first modern art museums in the state of Texas, founded in 1954. The Museum used to be the residence of its founder Marion Koogler McNay, who inherited most of her fortune, her important art collection and her Spanish Colonial mansion, which now serves as a Museum. 

On Thursday's, the McNay opens its doors for free from 4-9pm for the main gallery exhibition. And every Second Thursday of the Month the Museum hosts a free event on the museum grounds. Every month (except December) the event features a local band/dj, the best food trucks in San Antonio, beer and of course art. Bring your kids, pets and blankets and come enjoy this great event. The event starts at 6pm and ends 9pm sharp, so get there early. Did I mention the beer was free?
