The Conservatory in Downtown Houston

Just thought I would drop by with a quick blog post for my followers who work downtown or nearby!  The Conservatory has been open for some time now, but if you are like me you are late to the party.  My cousins were in town from Missouri so I thought it would be a great stop that is unique to Houston.  Check out the rest of the details of the Conservatory in Downtown Houston below. The Setup You probably have passed the Conservatory and didn't even realize it.  Just a block beyond Main Street, the Conservatory sits behind an inconspicuous [...]

Eadeaux’s Food Truck

A few months back I introduced you all to a new group I helped form, the Black Blogger Clique.  Our aim is to create a collective of black bloggers who curate events and content that fits our key demographic, black women.  We are still in the beginning stages so bare with us, but we did recently host our very first tasting.  Other than being fabulous women of color, our other shared trait is food so a foodie event seemed perfect.  Eadeaux's Cajun Cocina Food Truck (black owned!) graciously hosted our group and provided us plenty of content to share! So [...]

Get excited! Houston has a new movie theater, but this one comes with a few twists that I think you all will love.  Rooftop Cinema Club, a London based company, opened their first Texas cinema right here in Houston.  As the name implies, guests will enjoy their favorite classic movies under the stars!

Shell Shack Houston

A few months back a foodie friend (@fashionablylatefoodie)  raved about a soon to open seafood spot, Shell Shack.  I honestly cannot even remember how she described Shell Shack, but it was enough to pique my interest!  After a failed attempt to visit during their soft opening, we receive a coveted invite to their media tasting, so of course we had to go! Check out the details of my trip to Shell Shack Houston below. The Setup Shell Shack took over the Social Junkie space on Washington.  They spent several months revamping the space to fit their needs and did a [...]

Tour & Taste Through IAH Terminal E

Last week, I hit George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) with a boarding pass in hand, butttt did not take a flight.  What happened next was probably the coolest blogger event to date, a tasting tour of Houston's International Airport!

So follow me for my Tour & Taste Through IAH Terminal E with United Airlines and OTG (the brains behind the culinary operations!) Yume   Our first stop, Yume is a beautiful restaurant serving great Asian food to passengers.  This ain't your typical [...]

Sweet Potato Pie Ice Cream

Something about fall makes me want retreat to my home, pull out my comfy clothes and cook my favorite comfort foods.  In fact, most of the recipes on my blog seem to pop up around this time of year.  So my calendar says it is fall and right on time I felt inspired to create something new.  Now, I know most people equate fall with "pumpkin spice." I will be upfront and not that I am NOT a fan and opt for all things sweet potato! So for the fall, I am always on the hunt for how to turn [...]

International Smoke Houston

Gather 'round folks! There is a new Houston restaurant called International Smoke and one of the owners is someone we all are pretty familiar with!

Curry along with her partners brought the Bay Area restaurant International Smoke to Houston a few weeks back and I had the privilege of visiting with a group of food bloggers! Dig in to all of these details on International Smoke Houston! The Setup International Smoke [...]

Dear Summer Beats and BBQ Block Party

So have you heard about the Dear Summer Beats and BBQ event?  Hosted at Sawyer Yards by CWP Event productions, this event will give attendees a chance to say goodbye to summer with music, barbecue and drinks!  Originally set for September 9th, the organizers pushed the event back to September 22nd due to rain.  Which only seemed fitting as we say good bye to summer! Anywho, I am selfishly excited about the delay because it gives me more time to tell you about the event.  So check out the details below for the Dear Summer Beats and BBQ Block Party! [...]

10 Things I Wish I Knew Before Starting My Blog

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 [...]
