Modern Market Eatery is literally one of my go-to spots when I am out and about but still want whole, healthy food. They have SO many healthy options including vegan, gluten free, vegetarian, and more. They also use organic ingredients in a lot of their dishes, which is really important to me.

I am slowly working my way through the entire menu but two of my favourite dishes so far are the Three Cheese Pizza and Merida Salad. I like to order half of the Three Cheese with my Merida because, ya know, balance ;) You can also track the calories you are eating because every dish is labeled and it is also printed on the receipt! That is definitely one of my favourite aspects.

So far there are Modern Markets in Texas, Arizona, Colorado, Maryland, Indiana, and Washington D.C. with more to come hopefully! If you have one near by then you 100% need to be down their trying them out. They have never disappointed anyone I have taken to try them so far!

If you have any comments or questions you can leave them down below or hit me up o any of my socials! I love chatting with you guys so don’t be shy!

I hope you all enjoy your Sunday, I am off to get ready for the Pats game ;)

Whatever Sprinkles Your Donut

Hey there guys!

As per my warning this post is going to be a "hole" lot of donuts and if that is going to kill your diet by giving you crazy craving stop here, but if you're ready to lust over some amazing donuts LETS GET INTO IT!

Shoutout to my Mom who took these photos and didn't notice the HAIR TIE ON MY WRIST!

I had the pleasure of being invited to Wow Donuts & Drips to try some of their fab donuts, lemonades, and coffee. This was probably one of my favourite collaborations because 1. FREE DONUTS DUH  2. The place and the donuts were HELLA aesthetic and taking pictures in there was a freaking breeze.

I'm going to take you through my donuts so here we go. The first one is the Pina Colada donut. It is just amaze as it sounds you guys. Literally too delish! The second one is Over the Rainbow AKA the most beautiful donut ever made. The third is Banana Spilt! One of my personal faves BTW. The fourth is Orange Creamsicle and it's crazy how much it tastes like the real thing! Last but not least the fourth is the Lord of the Ring donut. It is covered in gooey chocolate and pretzel bites, donut porn at its finest ;)

Now on to their coffee. I love that they give you the coffee plain and let you create whatever your heart desires. You can add your own syrups and milks which I thought was super cool. I am definitely a fan of being able to control what is going into it!

Their lemonades are also insanely good. I tried the Strawberry Coconut(pictured) and Watermelon lemonades, both did not disappoint. They aren't too sweet and are perfectly refreshing in the Texas heat.

Now I would like to share my own personal creations, I am currently looking for names for them so feel free to give me any suggestions ;) Also if WD&D wants to name on after me FEEL FREE GUYS!

I mean come on! How gorgeous are the Basic Blogger B*tch creations?? They are a snack and drink all in one, plus they are perfect for the gram ;)

I really can't find a single negative thing to say about Wow Donuts & Drips. They have the prettiest and most delicious donuts in Plano. I definitely recommend stopping in to get some donuts and super cute pictures for your socials! Oh and if all that doesn't sell you, WD&D also makes all of their donuts fresh so there you go! No excuses to not go check them out ;)

Hotel Alessandra Houston

Happy Friday Babes!

I hope you all had a great week! I spent mine getting things ready for some events I am hosting and just hanging with my besties. I am so ready to share the final hotel from my stay in Houston with you guys! So lets just jump into it!

For the last part of my week in Houston I was hosted by the amazing Hotel Alessandra, and let me tell you guys it is literally one of my favourite hotels now!

First off lets start with my room because it was gorgeous! Everything in there was totally chic and modern. I loved the vibe SO much, it was one of the most aesthetic rooms ever. Another cool feature was the tablet that let you order room service and read about all the amenities that the hotel had to offer!

Hotel Alessandra has an awesome gym that you have to check out if you stay with them. They have the newest, nicest equipment and I loved the refreshment area that they had stocked with cold water and towels. They even offered bottle Fiji water for you to take with you while you're actually working out which I loved!

Of course they have an AMAZING pool because how could they not!? There are tons of spots where you can just lay out and work on your tan or there are even loungers in the shallow end that you can relax in if you don't feel like diving right in.

If you are in Houston I HIGHLY recommend staying at Hotel Alessandra. The location of the hotel is absolutely stellar. You are right downtown H-Town and are also only blocks away from Minute Maid Park, the Toyota Centre, and the House of Blues. You couldn't ask for a better location!
