Where to Eat & Drink in Dallas

Where to Eat & Drink in Dallas

Many have asked and not many have received…until now. Most people know I am a total foodie (shout out to the fam for raising me that way) and while this list is ever evolving, I wanted to share my favorite fifteen places that I get my grub when I’m home. I’m breaking this bad boy down by category since the food scene in Texas is insane. So here it is: my top three places to get coffee, brunch, lunch, dinner, and happy hour in Dallas.

Napa Valley

Napa Valley

With harvest season around the corner (that happens in late September or early October for you future wine-o’s), I wanted to share a little Napa Valley travel guide with y’all! Last year I decided to go on a last minute trip to wine country with a few friends for a long weekend and it was one of the best decisions I made in 2016. (Seriously, I’m not even being dramatic!) The food, the wine, the views – everything about this place is perfect. Pour yourself a glass of wine and let’s get this party started!

The Importance of Finding a Mentor

The Importance of Finding a Mentor

Bear with me here, because for this post I’m going to take you on a little journey.

I moved to Dallas almost exactly two years ago today and started working at my current job shortly after that (seriously, where has the time gone?!). This week, I’ve been reflecting on all the people who made that happen and all the people who have made this city home. For those of you who don’t know, I sought a lot of wisdom from a lot of people (a few of them being mentors) in making the decision to move to Dallas. While it wasn’t far from home, the move didn’t really make sense at the time.

What I Actually Bought at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

What I Actually Bought at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Happy Sunday, friends!

As many of you know, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started this weekend. If you follow ANY fashion bloggers at all, your Instagram feed has probably been filled with the best buys from the sale and basically why you should buy all the things. BUT you should still keep reading because I am making no money off this post. I’m legit just trying to help a girl out. Thank me later. 🙂

Corporate Culture

Corporate Culture

Throughout the past two years at my job, I’ve been asked many times what made me choose to work there. We joke about it all the time at recruiting events, but the answer truly is “the people”. The people are the driving force behind the culture at a company – they maintain it or they can change it. But before we get into the details, let’s break down what corporate culture is.

June Jams

June Jams

During summertime, I always find myself listening to ALL the music (okay, maybe I’m exaggeration…wouldn’t be the first time). But everyone needs some jams by the pool, during your summer road trips, or just to brighten your workday…especially when you can see the sunny weather outside. So without, further ado – here’s what I’ve been listening to in June!

Summer Reading

Summer Reading

If you’re anything like me in the summer, you want to spend most of your time by the pool (and in Texas, being by the water is the only way to survive the heat). Summer seems to always be the season that everyone wants to just chill (no pun intended), but one thing I always find myself doing in the summer is reading by the water. It’s hilarious that something I used to dread most as a kid is now something I willingly do on my own. So without further ado, here is what’s on MY summer reading list this year!
