Lions, Tigers and BEARS. Oh My!

All jokes aside, I love going to visit my friend in Waco, but going from a city the size of Houston to a city of the size of Waco DEFINITELY calls for a little creative thinking when it comes to planning our attack on the city.
{Hey, I'm pretty good at creative things right??}

Enough chit chat...here is my comprehensive guide to bear country and all it has to offer!

First stop - "Beautiful Nail - Just one?" {please tell me you have seen this?? no, click here - it's HILARIOUS}

...anyways my friend and I decided we needed to feel a little girly so we headed to City Nails for a shellac manicure. Now I understand that this certain trend isn't everyones cup of tea, but personally I am all for anything that goes on and I don't have to maintain for up to 3 weeks. Seriously. Wow!

Here's the color I got..it's my new obsession
{Navy with gold and camel accents is one of my all time FAVORITE things this winter!}


Second stop - Movie date!
I could watch movies all day. every day. - and going to the movies is even better so OF COURSE we had go. Sadly, there was nothing there that excited me, so we decided to see Joyful Noise and surprisingly it wasn't half bad.


It definitely had it's level of corny, but the overall message was good and the music made you tap your feet. {And everyone loves Queen Latifah!}




Third stop - If you are looking to contribute financially back to our economy I have just the place for you.


The Shops at Spice Village are a collection of everything you could ever want. From shoes to clothes to jewelry to home decor to beauty products, you will NOT leave empty handed - as you can see above.
{Yes those shoes are purple, but they are very subtle and they were only $5 bucks!}
Take a look through their vendors here!


Fourth stop - I definitely saved the best for last and I almost don't want to tell y'all about this place because I want to keep it all to myself! But I guess I will share because it's definitely a gem! Junque in the Trunk is a wonderful vintage antique store with VERY reasonable prices on amazing things from statement pieces of furniture to the perfect knick knacks. Don't believe me? Check out what I snagged for only $40!



It's a solid wood, 3-drawer lingerie chest that has a grey distressed finish....and I. Am. In. Love. {trust me - this photo DOES NOT do it justice - my camera isn't it's best, sadly}

All I have to say is if you are ever in Waco {or God help me, if they open a 2nd store in Houston}, you HAVE to stop by and tell Ms. Emily Jones that Lindsey from Creatively Classy blog sent you and you need something amazing. Trust me - you. will. not. be. disappointed!

Or you can visit Junque in the Trunk here, where you can look through some of their new items and always be in the loop on their sales! "Like" their junque...I sure did!

As always I hope you find these reviews helpful and if you are ever in Bear country make sure to stop at these wonderful places!

P.S. - all this Baylor talk has me craving my maroon and white so here is something to make my fellow Ags smile
