From Mediterranean to Mexican

If I can recommend two places–completely different from one another–to someone who isn’t an Austin native, it would be Athenian Grill and Bar and Torchy’s Tacos. I got a Gyro Plate: Roasted lamb and beef with Greek salad, rice, meatballs and topped with Tzatiki sauce and a side of warm, lightly toasted pita bread. I […]

Lucy’s Fried Chicken!

You know, as a Southern girl from good’ole Texas, I have never had fried chicken! Aside from the occasional Popeyes, I haven’t had this southern staple until I discovered Lucy’s Fried Chicken. Lucy’s is located on 2218 College Avenue just off of South Congress Avenue and is open daily from 11-midnight. I ordered a basket […]

Simply Pleated

Some people hate running errands, but not me! I cannot stand being lazy at home. I always want something to do– besides, it gives me an excuse to play dress up! This look is more casual on my part. Simple, but cute. I love my double pleated blouse. It’s easy to wear and extremely comfortable. […]

My First Bridal Shower

One of my really good friend recently got married and I took on the responsibility of planning and hosting her bridal shower. The only problem is, I have never planned a bridal shower before, nonetheless been to one! So this was a challenge for me! However, it all worked out as planned. I had all […]

Let’s Go Back In Time

I love vintage things. From clothes, to cars, to house hold supplies, I love it all! When I found out that a steam train is still running in Austin, TX, I jumped right on it! If you’re looking for something fun to do, the Austin Steam Train is a perfect choice. Tickets range from $13-$75 […]

Perla’s Seafood & Oyster Bar

I love SoCo Austin! There are so many amazing, cool, and chic restaurants there! You all know I am obviously obsessed with Hopdoddy, but I noticed a super cute restaurant just next door to Hopdoddy called Perla’s. I did a little research and thought Perla’s looked great so I decided to check it out! Here […]

Media Kit

For our final project in PR, my instructor split the class into groups of 3 to create a media kit. We could create a media kit for any business, non-profit organizations, or public figure. Each kit must include the following: Company history/Overview Mission and/or vision Biography (biographies) Logo or important photos Media contact information Fast […]

Easter, Egg Hunts, and Wasps?

Last Sunday was Easter Sunday!! A day of joy, family gatherings, children laughing, and Easter egg hunting. I started out my day by going to church and then home for some Easter fun! I apologize for my ‘half smile’, but this is the only picture that showed my full Easter Sunday outfit. I wore a […]

Austin Restaurant Week 2011

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the start of Austin Restaurant Week. For those of you who missed it, ARW is a local Austin event celebrating good dining for a great deal! Like their slogan states, “One city, two weeks, three courses.” And that’s exactly what I had. I made reservations to five different […]
