Austin According To Camille Styles

The super-charming Texas blogger (and mom of two), on her favorite Austin haunts – both with and without kids.

camilleWe’d be happy if our life was half as pretty as that of Camille Styles.

And before you call bulls^*t, she actually lives the beautiful life she portrays online – it’s equal parts innate and something she works hard to achieve. Which is why people can’t get enough of her blog, full of tips and guidance on how you can do the same.

We credit Camille for curing our insomnia, diverting us from bad reality TV, and making our last dinner party a huge success.

We caught up with the charming, down-to-earth blogger and mom of two (Henry is 1.5, Phoebe is 4) to talk all things Austin, Texas.  

Warning: Reading on might leave you seriously considering packing it all up and moving to the land where everything’s bigger.
