Sometimes you just need to hit the reset button and treat yo’ self to a much deserved staycation. Although the Hilton Anatole is the perfect destination for out-of-towners, we found it was the ideal spot for a getaway without totally getting away. The historic and unique hotel sits just outside of downtown (far enough away for awesome views), and recently got a resort-style makeover that we were so excited to check out.
Bonjour, y’all. We recently got back from arguably the most amazing vacation ever. We left the real world far behind and headed to the French Riveria for a week. Clear blue waters, rows of yachts, fresh seafood and plenty of rosé – can you blame us for almost missing our flight? Although we took a few day trips, home base was Cannes, and we totally fell in love with this beautiful beach town.
Las Vegas. Sin City. The place that’s 117 degrees in the July. It’s a town that people seem to love or hate, but Lexi and I have never really had opinions on it, honestly, until recently.
We’d been once before for a short girls’ trip, and while we had fun, it wasn’t a long enough trip and we didn’t see enough to form a proper opinion. We’d been trying to plan a trip back, and when the opportunity arose, we pounced on it. [Read more…]
If you’ve been following us for, well any amount of time, you can easily tell we’re hardly – okay, never – in front of the camera. We can shoot burgers, cheese boards, beautiful scenery, macarons and s’mores all day, but would totally freeze up on the other side of the lens. So, you have to understand that not just anyone could convince us to do a full-on photo shoot. Maybe it was the wine or the creative juices flowing, but after a girls’ night happy hour with the boss babes of Beckley & Co., Becca and Alex, Kelsie and I were totally on board with facing the cam for the day.

It’s almost that time of year, y’all – DFW Restaurant Week is just around the corner, beginning Aug. 15. This year’s list of participating restaurants has been announced and reservations are open for the taking. But, with a list of 100+ restaurants, where should you actually go?
We got ya covered.
Let’s talk burgers. And booze. And cheese fries. Sound good?
If you said no, then BOY, BYE. But really, is there anything as comforting as a cheeseburger? Other than pizza, of course.
We’ve said it before – brunch is a THING in Dallas. Yeah, I know, everyone loves a good breakfast-lunch hybrid. But Dallasites are oddly obsessed with this social meal. It sort of becomes what our weekends revolve around. Deciding which place has the best eggs benedict, patio or bottomless mimosas is a true hobby of ours. Given our brunch addiction, Kelsie and I have wanted to throw a brunch party for a long time now and finally pulled one together for a fun Saturday morning at home.
By the way, when you brunch at home, the mimosas are automatically bottomless. Major key. [Read more…]
For better or worse, we’re getting into the pits of peak traveling season. From college breaks, to companies giving their (lucky) employees Summer Fridays off, traveling season is upon us. While that’s exciting, what’s not exciting is the fact that the TSA is under-staffed and you can end up waiting in a two-hour security line (or worse) at the airport. To help make summer travel easy, we’ve compiled a few tips. Got any others? Let us know!
Let’s talk about something super fun today: juicing.
… Are you still there??
The other week, Lexi and I attended an event at Freshii Plaza of the Americas to taste some of the menu (it was all delicious) and entered to win a one-day juice cleanse, because you know, we never win anything but we still like to try. Well – good news: we won! Bad news: we were scared and didn’t know if we had the mental strength to actually do a juice cleanse. Thankfully, the Freshii cleanse includes a salad that you eat at the end of the day, meaning you actually get to chew food.
Nine times out of ten, Lexi and I would prefer to grab a pizza for 10 bucks, a bottle of wine, and call it a night, rather than going to a fancy AF dinner somewhere. Partially because we’re poor, and maybe partially because we’re a tad lazy after working all week (and weekend). However, we’ve recently started a new tradition – Treat Yo’ Self weekends every other month. We take this time to do things we’ve been wanting to do or spend a little extra cash on something we normally wouldn’t. Activities range from dining out at a new restaurant, and most recently, Tea at TASCHEN, the swanky library inside the Joule downtown.
