Down On Grayson [Eat]

Last weekend, I planned to meet up with some of my friends, to tell them all about my engagement! We wanted to go to a nice place to talk, that offered good food and drinks. We decided to try out Down on Grayson. So, we meet for lunch on a Saturday. When I got there the atmosphere was relaxed and fresh. Down on Grayson is a casual, Modern-American restaurant that serves a mixture of classic and contemporary dishes

I started off by ordering a frozen margarita (which is my favorite drink). Then, for lunch I ordered the GRILLED SANDWICH DU JOUR, (sandwich of the day) which was a Rueben sandwich with a house sauce and a side of French fries. I usually wouldn’t order the Rueben, but our waiter convinces me and he was right! It was super good, grilled to perfection and the cheese was amazing! The fries were also very good.

One of my friends ordered the CRISPY CHICKEN SANDWICH (panko crusted chicken, baby Swiss, tomatoes, pickles & house-made balsamic slaw) and it was also delicious!

Finally, we ordered the STRAWBERRY CAKE (6 layers with fresh strawberries blended into the batter and icing. Topped with Strawberry buttercream icing). It was AMAZING! I love strawberries, so it was perfect! After that I went into a food coma.

Down on Grayson is perfect for a casual lunch-dinner with family and/or friends, you can bring your kids and even your dog. I really recommend it and probably will be coming back soon.  It is located on 303 East Grayson, San Antonio, TX 78215. For more information visit

Portions are too big, try to share with someone. I was planning to take my left overs home, but as usual I forgot the box on the table.


Off the Shoulder Trend [Steal]

Last [Steal] post I featured a Cold Shoulder Ruffle Top from Well, today I am featuring an off the shoulder top, which I also ordered from there. Unless you're living under a rock, I am pretty sure you have noticed the off the shoulder trend, and I am certain it will continue to do so for a while. I got this top for only $18.00! It really was a steal! 

I ordered medium size, but it comes slightly oversized, so if you are planning to order one you can either order your size or a size under. I compared it with other brands/stores $150.00 (MLM LABEL), the material and style are exactly the same
I wore it with some lace up flats, a chocker from Forever21 and some Paige ripped jeans. To see complete links and outfit details scroll down.

New Orleans Weekend Guide [Travel]

Last weekend I traveled to New Orleans to celebrate my future sister-in-law'21st birthday! Yes, you read it right! I also got engaged in this magical and mystical city! It was the best weekend/trip I have ever had!  It was a blast! We partied all weekend and we didn't leave the French Quarter. 

Monteleone, located at 214 Royal Street. Main attraction, the Carousel Bar & Lounge. 

Brunch: The Court of Two Sisters. It's the most delicious buffet I've ever tried. Plus, they have an awesome patio. 
Light Lunch: Cafe Beignet. Try the Muffaletta and of course their beignets. 
Dinner: Irene's Cuisine. Order the lasagna, the meatballs and ask for off the menu specials.


You don’t have to go anywhere else, the French Quarter is the city’s center of culture for entertainment. You can spend the weekend walking through the beautiful neighborhood and admire the French and Spanish architecture, the art galleries, antiques stores, boutiques, music performers and of course restaurants and bars. Royal street has the best art galleries. Bourbon Street has the best bars and it's the place to party. Before you leave make sure to visit Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral. These last two are a must! They both have a very special place in my heart, since this is where the proposal took place.
