Eat+Stay+Play: 5 Days in California

View of the golden gate bridge from crissy field

Returning from a restful getaway to cold hard reality is never easy. Returning from a restful getaway in California has proven even more difficult. My mom and I spent five days in The Golden State for a much needed girls’ trip. California completely took hold of my heart, making it ever so painful to wrench […]

This week’s Instagram recap is just a couple days late because we have been enjoying every minute of the long Memorial Day weekend.

Eat+Stay+Play: A Weekend in New Orleans

I could write a love letter to the weekend. Any weekend, really. Those magical two days of mental bliss. No work stress, no “office hours.” Just relaxation and fun. Maybe a little sleeping in, maybe an adventure or two. I live for these days (and must work to fund them, but as the saying goes, […]

Located in the old Fire Station No. 7 building in San Antonio’s Southtown, Battalion serves fresh Italian favorites in a space more reminiscent of a swanky club than grandma’s kitchen. Andrew Goodman (of Feast and Rebelle) excelled […]

C&C Weekly Instagram Recap 4.14.17

TGIF! What a great week! I realized that I completely neglected to do a weekly Instagram recap last week. But we had a really busy fun-filled weekend and I was working on a mini photo shoot for yesterday’s Longchamp post. I was a little nervous about being in front of the camera so much, but my […]

Bohanan’s Bests The Steakhouse Scene

Some believe that the American steakhouse is an archaic restaurant model from a bygone era. A boys’ club. A high dollar gathering place exclusive to celebrating business deals with overpriced bourbon and overcooked steak. Anyone can name five or six, maybe even ten, steakhouses, none of which is any more remarkable than the next. My […]

C&C Weekly Instagram Recap 3.31.17

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope the week was good to you. I realized that just because I post something to Instagram does not necessarily mean that everyone sees it. Personally, I love Instagram. As an amateur photographer and someone who enjoys gawking at pictures of food and clothes all day, I find it to be incredibly […]

Best Brunch at Vaudeville’s Basement Bistro

I love brunch. Just the thought of having an array of sweet and savory dishes plus coffee and cocktails has me workin’ for the weekend. Brunch is a much-loved tradition. If you search Instagram for #brunch, you’ll see more than 13 million mouth-watering photos of carefully curated croissants, cappuccinos, Eggs Benedict, and of course the star of the […]
