But First Let Me Take A Snap151

HIIII BABES!

I am bringing you ALLLLLL the colour and brightness with this post to help you get though this Tuesday or as I like to call it, pre hump day. I also just REALLY want to share my experience at a new interactive pop up in Dallas, Snap 151. These new “Selfie Pop Ups” are all the rage right now so being the Basic Blogger B*tch that I am I had to hop on this trend!

Snap 151 is located in Mockingbird Station and will be popped up there until May 19th. Tickets are $20 which is honestly less than I thought it would be and children 3 and under get in for $10. You get a 50 minutes to explore the space and get pictures at the 10 interactive exhibits, It was more than enough time in my case. I had time to make tons of fun videos, boomerangs, etc, plus shoot with my photographer!

Here are shots taken from each interactive exhibit EXCEPT the flowers and gold wall.

So a few tips for anyone looking to check this out. I would definitely bring some outfit changes because you can basically do a new outfit at every exhibit and also if you aren’t super skilled with photography or have someone coming with you who is, bring a photographer because the lighting is a little hard to work with at some of the spots and I would have been LOST without Kendra(photog).

If you have been wanting to check one of these interactive pop ups out I hope this helps shed some light on them for you. My experience with Snap was super fun and I left with some great content for my socials so no complaints here. The only critique I would have is that there is quite a bit of just empty wall space that I think could definitely be used for more photo-ops.

If you do go to Snap 151 definitely hit me up in the comments or my socials and let me know your thoughts!

I hope you guys have a fab week and I will talk to you soon.

Getting in my Bella(Greens)

Hey Fab Babes!

I hope you are all having an AMAZE week so far! I have been so busy catching up on collaborations and scheduling content since I got back from Toronto but I know you are all going to L O V E all the exciting things coming to Basic Blogger B*tch.

Now you all know I am super into clean eating and living my healthiest life, before the haters bring up all the donuts and splurges I have calm yo self because it’s called BALANCE okay! Everyone needs to treat themselves but the majority of the time I strive to eat the cleanest and most whole foods possible, which is why I am obsessed with the new restaurant I discovered in Houston.

The top dish is the Turkey Burger with reg fries and the bottom is the Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries.

Bellagreen has become my MUST eat spot in Houston. They have locations all around Houston and surrounding areas which makes it super easy to try them no matter what area you are living in or visiting.

They only use fresh, whole foods in all of their dishes. Everything is made from scratch and it is all organic. They also can modify any of their dishes to be gluten free, dairy free, Keto, Paleo, and more. Basically any way you would like it modified they can do it!

I definitely, 100%, HIGHLY recommend trying Bellagreen to anyone living in Houston or visiting. But fear not Dallas babes, Bellagreen is set to open THREE locations in DFW in the upcoming months. Two in Plano and one in Dallas, so you will have your chance to try them soon!

As always feel free to leave any comments or questions down below or find me on any of my socials and slide into my Dms ;) I love hearing from you guys so don’t be shy!

I hope you all have a great, productive week!

For dessert I decided to hit up the waffle bar because I am all about some waffles y'all. I added some of the fruit from the fruit bar too! The waffles are made fresh and they have all the toppings set out so you can top it however you want.
