Guide to Reno Nevada

*This trip was sponsored by the Reno Airport Services Corporation. All opinions are my own* A few weeks ago, I received an invite from the Reno Airport Services Corporation to visit and see that all Reno and the surrounding cities had to offer!  Now I must admit, I thought it could have been a scam, but once  I learned that United Airlines recently added a year around direct flight from Houston to Reno that the team wanted to showcase! For followers of my blog, you know this has been my year of travel so who am I to say no [...]

What to See in Charleston

Whenever I would say I wanted to visit Charleston people would ask me why?! It was not New York City, or LA or even Miami what was the attraction?  Well... it all started with a little television show called Southern Charm (do not judge me!).  I watch just about everything on Bravo so this show was no different.  From the show, I learned how beautiful Charleston is.  I did a little more research and learned more about all of the African American history in Charleston and decided that I MUST GO! I shared with you what I ate, but now [...]

Guide to Taipei

I am back from my first visit to Asia and of course I have so much to share!  I had the privilege of traveling to Taiwan for work.  Since this was not a personal vacation, I did not plan out my own itinerary or do much research before heading to Taiwan.  With that, I really went in to this trip with no expectations and that honestly made the whole experience better!  I compiled the highlights of my trip in to this one LONG post as a Guide to Taipei! 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 [...]

My Two Cents LA

Top of my LA must stop lists this go around was soul food restaurant, My Two Cents.  I first discovered this LA gem while doing research for my Black Owned Brunchin' list, a nationwide list of black owned restaurants that serve brunch.  Then a few years ago, I saw Issa Rae and Solange Knowles host a benefit for the owner of the restaurant to help her raise money to stay in business.  The likes of Kelly Rowland and Beyonce attended this benefit.  So from my standpoint, if this is a spot that all that black girl magic would support, then [...]

Catch LA

I decided to be like everyone else and catch a plane on Memorial Day Weekend! I linked up with my girl Jasmene of @FashionablyLateFoodie and went to Los Angeles!  I've visited twice in the last few years (catch those posts here), but it was great to go with a fellow foodie/blogger! I knew we would be on the same page on the places we wanted to see.  We visited so many great places that deserve their own blog posts, so expect me to sprinkle them out over the next few weeks.  Up first, my visit to Catch LA! The Setup [...]

Houston Neighborhood Guide Pt. 1

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 [...]

Back to Rome

Rome has quickly become one of my favorite cities in the world.  When booking my latest flight deal, we debated between Rome and Madrid (both cities had deals from Houston).  Ultimately we decided on Madrid, but I was determined to swing back through Rome too.  We lucked up on a $75 roundtrip flight via RyanAir (more on that later).  With that, I was Back to Rome to see some new things and swing back by some places I loved! Here are some random things I wanted to share from my second visit to Rome (for the recap of my first [...]
