*This post is part of a Diner En Blanc series! Check out the rest of the series here* Yesterday, I attended Houston's Diner En Blanc 2016. Just like last year, I complained all the way up until the event, but once the tables were sat and the napkin wave began I was again in love with this event!Someone is probably thinking, DANG she's writing about that event again?! I apologize in advance, but for whatever reason my views tell me that people love reading about Diner En Blanc SO I am just here to give the people what they want :). [...]

*This post is part of a Diner En Blanc Series! Check out the rest of the posts here!* Despite my gripes from last year, I am back for more with Houston's second edition of Diner En Blanc! This years event is set for Saturday October 15th. *Fingers crossed* that we do not have a weather mishap that requires rescheduling like last year. The Houston event is returning with new hosts this year and I expect it to be even better. The new hosts have successfully hosted Diner En Blanc in New Orleans and Atlanta, so I imagine they know what [...]
*This post is part of a Diner En Blanc series! Check out the rest of the series here* This past Sunday marked Houston's Inaugural Diner En Blanc. Despite my previous snarky post, I actually had a good time! I am already planning for next year's event and eyeing traveling to another location for the event, like Miami, New Orleans or better yet Paris where it all started. Here is how it all went. Friday, I picked up my rented tables (more on that mistake later) and coordinated with a friend who picked up rented chairs for us. Leading up to the [...]
* This post is part of a Diner En Blanc series! Check out all of the posts here* So last summer while stalking the Instagram pages of the Blood Sweat and Heels cast, I saw several of them attended a pop up dinner. Everyone was dressed in fabulous all white outfits. They brought their own food, alcohol, and table decorations. I was immediately smitten with this idea because I absolutely love experiences that are centered around food or meals with friends. I just figured I would have to make a trip to NYC to partake. Welp after browsing on Zagat one afternoon, [...]
This weekend Houston hosted its first Célébrez en Rosé. It's Memorial Day weekend, in Houston, so no surprise it was HOT as all get out. Still, we had a great time so I am sharing an event recap with tips for attending future iterations. Here is all you need to know in this Célébrez en Rosé Recap. Tickets Full disclosure, I received a pair of VIP tickets in exchange for promoting the event. But honestly, I think I would have gone even without the partnership. I encouraged several of my friends to buy tickets too and ended up with a [...]
Been awhile since I made a monthly list of restaurants to visit, but rest assure during that break I was eating and gathering places to feature. If you are new here, this list will include new and old restaurants. Generally places I have visited recently that I thought were great and worth sharing. I make a quick list of my favorites rather than a detailed blog post for each. Here are 10 Houston Restaurants to Visit in May. MAD This River Oaks District tapas restaurant has been around for a while, it just took me sometime to visit. The price point [...]
I jokingly bragged about the excellent Houston tour I gave to my cousins last year and received so many requests to share the wealth! I love my hometown and take great pride in showing it off to out-of-towners. Many people do not know much about the city outside of NASA, Beyonce and our sports teams. So I consider this a challenge and I must say most of my visitors go home with a new appreciation for the great city of Houston. As I started to think about how I can share my guide, I realized this deserved several posts. I [...]
Blogging ain't for the faint of heart! I naively started this blog about three years ago without really having a plan. I knew enough to buy my domain and pick a theme on Wordpress. Listen, I really thought only my mother would be reading my blog, but quickly my lack of a plan had me scrambling to catch up! So after three years in the game, there are a few things that I wish I knew way back when. Rather than watching newbie bloggers flounder like I did, I thought I would share a couple of things I wish I [...]
