Last week my glamorous friend Wendy Darling and I had the pleasure of a spa day at Mokara Spa in Omni Dallas. It’s been a hectic, stressful summer for us both and we were desperately in need of some girl time and R&R. Mokara Spa is inside Omni Dallas and has the most incredible views…

Crazy Rich Asians Dallas Premiere

What a night! I’m interrupting my usual food content to tell you about a very special night. Crazy Rich Asians is one of my favorite book series. My mom and I screamed when we found out they were making a movie so imagine how hard I screamed when I got invited to the Dallas premiere…

Poke O

Hawaii’s famous raw fish dish is taking Dallas by storm with poke places popping up all over the city. If you haven’t heard of poke (which rhymes with okay) before, it’s super fresh raw fish tossed with veggies and typically served over rice. If you like sushi, you’ll like poke. A huge poke fan myself,…

Last week I had the pleasure of checking out Ziziki’s at The Star (6765 Winning Drive, Suite 800, Frisco, Texas 75034) with my friend Wendy Darling.

An Evening with Dallas Symphony Orchestra

There’s something about the sounds of a symphony that transports me to another place, another time. I get lost in the music as it swells and dances from note to note.

Raise Your Glass Dallas 2018

It’s a rare week that I venture out of the house on Sunday but Raise Your Glass Dallas was so worth it. My friend Jessica invited me to be her date and I loved it before I even walked through the door. It was a glorious spring day in Texas: high 50s, low 60s, light…
