Hotel Alessandra

The beautiful grand entrance stairs.
I can't get over the detailing of our gorgeous room. The bath tub was my favorite part! Below I am going to attach more photos of our room!
    My husband and I had the opportunity to have a relaxing and much needed staycation at Hotel Alessandra-a new luxury hotel in Houston, Texas. It is stunning to say the least!  My husband and I were always on the go and traveling the world before we had babies. Now, it's hard to do so. I am with my babies 24/7 and I don't enjoy being far from them when we do decide to have a date night, etc. Therefore, a stay-cation is the perfect get away for this mommy & daddy! Right in your home town, you can relax, spend some alone time yet be super close in case your babies need you or vise versa! It seems as if I need them more, LOL. I just love them so much, can't get enough!
     Anyways, let's talk about Hotel Alessandra, shall we?! The hotel has a lot to offer.  From the moment we arrived, I was impressed. We were greeted with huge smiles by the polite Valet & Hotel Alessandra Team. Hospitality at it's finest! Right when you walk in, the 1st thing you see is a beautiful grand stair case that welcomes you to the reception desk, where you will be able to check in. Also situated on the 2nd floor is Lucienne-  Houston's upscale Mediterranean Restaurant and Bardot-a sophisticated bar and lounge. You have all of the fine dining/lounging right in the hotel and that is so convienite! Although, if you decide to venture out into the city there's no need for an Uber! Why?! Because Hotel Alessandra offers their guests to be chauffeured around in a Maserati. Complimentary! How fabulous is that?! Pretty awesome if you ask me!
     We spent our day relaxing and pampering ourselves with a couple's massage at Spa by Alessandra and oh was it a phenomenal experience! I highly recommend taking time to rejuvenate yourself every once in a while. You and your partner deserve it! 
     I am so grateful we were able to experience this luxurious hotel. We are looking forward to spending another one of our staycation's at Hotel Alessandra. We couldn't of expected anything more or have been more pleased with this hotel and their professional team!
This is the beautiful view at night of Hotel Alessandra/ The Valet.
The beautiful Lucienne. I almost forgot to mention how Executive Chef Jose Hernandez will be the one preparing your delicious meals. 20+ years of experience around the world. Check him out!
Bardot Bar & Lounge. Very swanky!
Where we spent most of our day! Spa by Alessandra. It was so refreshing + very professional.
Here's what our room looked like! How pretty? I love the dark and rich pop of green velvet.
 Also, behind that amazing and unique mirror wall lays the bath tub! How incredible?!

The view at night time. So breath taking! Look at that. Reminds me of NYC!
If you like a view, then this pool is for YOU!

Valentine's Day Tablescape + A Romantic Dinner For Two Menu ♥

Our Annual Dinner For Two Valentine's Day  Menu:

     Hello sweet friends  & happy Monday! Another week is upon us, and it's going to be a great one, I already know it! Valentine's Day is just 2 days away. Can you believe it? Oh my goodness. I have always been one to love and celebrate this holiday of LOVE, but I started enjoying it even more when I met my sweet Brett.
     This is going to be Brett and I's 3rd Valentine's Day celebration together. I started to spoil him from the very beginning of our relationship With a Valentine's Day Breakfast and a romantic Dinner for Two at home. Well, now dinner for 4 and we couldn't be happier with our kiddos by our sides! We are homebodies and always have been, even before the angels came along! All of our Valentine's dinner date nights were homemade by me, for him, at our home! 
    I didn't share what I make him for breakfast on the menu. Although, I will share it here.  I make him Red Velvet Heart Pancakes w/ a cream cheese mixture topped with pecans and maple syrup. It is one of his favorites, considering he loves Red Velvet + Cream Cheese. Plus, how could you not make heart shaped pancakes for your loved one on Valentine's Day?!
     Of course, we have all of our Holiday meals in our dining room. Our tablescape changes as the seasons change. It is something that I am constantly updating.  This tablescape happens to be one of my favorites ( they are all to be honest!) I absolutely adore the color pink, and my fine American Beauty China is beyond perfect for this holiday. I cherish this china so much, my grandma (Nana Morris- my dad's mom) passed it down to me, and it stays displayed in our china cabinet year round. I will put it out on Valentine's Day and  sometimes Mother's Day! It is so gorgeous and I am so grateful that my family and I are able to enjoy it now.  
What are your Valentine's Day plans? I would love to hear.

Lavish & Lace

     Hi lovelies. Happy Wednesday! My hubby and I just got back from Las Vegas tonight, and we had an absolute BLAST. George Strait + Super Bowl + Louis Vuitton! It was a great weekend get away with my hubby. Although, I am beyond happy to be home and all snuggled up with our precious babies! It's just not the same without them.
     Valentine's Day is right around the corner.  I previously showed you guys my version of the perfect Valentine's / Galentine's Day outfit, but I figured I could share a dressier option! 
     Red + Lace.  You can not go wrong with that combination! 
P.S- I linked my exact dress. Although if you'd rather not spend over $100, I linked some other alternatives that are absolutely stunning!
