November 2011

“The times they are a changin’…” -Bob Dylan New neighborhood. New house. New job.  There have been a lot of changes in the Pinkston household these last few months, but I am grateful to say they have all been positive!  Sometimes, though, when I think about how fast things change it kind of makes my headContinue reading “November 2011”

Chiang Mai 2011

When we were staying in Chiang Mai this summer, we rented a car and a driver and went trekking through the hillsides and villages outside of the city.  One of the tribes we came across is a tribe called the Karen.  The women there spend their days weaving silk scarves and making jewelry.  I wasContinue reading “Chiang Mai 2011”

There is nothing like a little Hawaiian vacation to say farewell to summer and embrace a new season!  The week before last, Aaron and I enjoyed six amazing days of eating sushi, lounging on the beach, and drinking mai tais.  Somewhere in between rest and relaxation we managed to squeeze in a zodiac boat tripContinue reading “Hawaii 2010”

New York, 2010

I have been m.i.a. lately here on Effortless Chic.  In the last two weeks my sister got married in Austin, Aaron and I spent a week in New York for work, and then we both worked on the VMAs this past Sunday.  Enough with excuses, here are some of my favorite moments from my weekContinue reading “New York, 2010”
