Brunch at Whiskey Cake

Y'all, I did something I rarely do! I traveled out to the burbs for brunch! This trip just so happened to be to Whiskey Cake which I have heard nothing but great things about.  I was beyond excited to try it, so much so that the drive down I10 didn't even seem that bad.  For this foodie adventure, I grabbed foodie friend Bridgette of Bits 'n Bites for a Saturday Brunch at Whiskey Cake! The Setup Okay y'all know I judge restaurants out in the burbs.  They all look the same and lack character.  Whiskey Cake definitely breaks the stereotype!  The [...]

Strato 550

As you all know, a good venue for me comes with good vibes and scenery.  Lately, that generally involves good views of downtown or a rooftop.  In Strato 550, I found both! I caught a work lunch at the downtown restaurant during Houston Restaurant Weeks.  Not only is their food great, but the views are some of the best in the city.  Here are the details! The Setup Located in the 1415 Louisiana Building, Strato 550 calls the top floor home.  After ascending to the 43rd floor, patrons will first encounter the meeting rooms.  Strato 550 doubles as a conference [...]

THE Houston Itinerary

For those who follow my Instagram story, you are fully aware that this weekend I embarked on the Cadillac of Houston Tours.  A few of my cousins were in town for the weekend from Kansas City including my cousin Brian and his wife who visited last year as well.  Their last visit actually inspired my Houston Neighborhood Guides!  This go around, my cousin Troy joined in on the fun and I was determined to highlight some of my favorite things about my hometown.  Our weekend turned in to THE Houston Itinerary. A little back story.  I've lived in Houston pretty [...]

Neo Baguette

I know you guys love a low-key, best kept secret spot as much as I do!  I recently discovered a new one, Neo Baguette located in the Heights.  The setup and cuisine is enough to make this spot not so secret soon enough. Check the details of my lunchtime visit below. The Location and Setup After receiving an invite from the team at Neo Baguette, I decided to make a lunchtime visit during the work week to try it out.   I took Main Street all the way from downtown to the Heights and made it there in no time.  Perfect [...]

What to See & Do Taipei 101 Once the largest building [...]

Visiting Fredericksburg Texas

I have spent most of my life living in the great state of Texas, but only recently discovered the Texas gem that is Fredericksburg, Texas!  This German town is right in the middle of the state in Texas Hill Country.  In recent years, it has attracted visitors from the state's larger cities due to it's small town charm, German cuisine and of course the wineries!  Just a four hour drive from Houston, I took my first trip to Fredericksburg last month and per usual... I have a lot to say about Visiting Fredericksburg Texas! Where to Stay Our cute [...]

A Few More Stops from Los Angeles

The Los Angeles recap continues!  There were a few more spots I visited that you should definitely include on your next weekend trip to Los Angeles. The Broad Visiting a museum has quickly become one of my favorite things to do when I travel.  This go around, my friend recommended that we visit the Broad, a museum focused on pop culture that is typically free! You can reserve a time ahead of time online.  To avoid the lines, we opted to pay for the special exhibition "Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983."  As you [...]
