Houston Basic Blogger Brunch Recap

Hey, Hey B*tches!

I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far! After finishing up this post I am heading to coffee with a friend and then getting an outfit for a HH I’m hosting tomorrow. BUT we are here to talk about my Houston Basic Blogger Brunch so lets get into it!

So this brunch was my FIRST ever outside of DFW and to say I was nervous is an understatement but thankfully everything worked out great. I had the best babes there and the location was amazing. Speaking of location, BBB HTX was hosted by Bosscat Kitchen and Libations and I couldn’t have asked for a better place for my first out of town brunch. They have a stellar menu including this Fruity Pebble French Toast pictured above, that was perfect for the gram ;)

The theme of this brunch “Lets Flamingle“ I wanted something that would be cute and fun for pictures which this was and I loved that it also tied in the networking and relationship forming aspect of BBB. That is really one of my main goals for BBB is that you leave with new connections and blogger besties! Community over competition is my MOTTO!

I honestly coudln’t have asked for a better turnout or location for BBB in H-Town, in fact it was such a success that I am already planning my next HTX brunch so keep an eye out Houston Babes ;)

I hope you all have great week and I will talk to you soon,

Denton Food Tour

Happy Monday!!!!

I am so glad to be starting off this brand new week by sharing a post I have been working on since last week with you guys! So as a lot of you saw on my Instagram, I went on a small food tour in Denton, TX, and got to try a bunch of cool new spots that I am finally sharing with you y'all. Lets hop right into the first place I went.

I started at Earls Pizza Kitchen in Argyle. It is seriously one of the cutest pizza places I have been to lately and the stylization of the restaurant is adorable with all the exposed brick and unique light fixtures. The old pieces of truck that they used on the outside is also a super charming idea and makes for great photo ops ;)

Now the food DOES NOT disappoint at all. After living in NYC I am kind of a pizza snob I’m not going to lie but Earls knows how to make some AMAZING pizzas. I tried the Margherita and Chicken Artichoke and both were fabulous. I also got the Formaggio Pane AKA Cheesy Bread and it was to die for, give me all the carbs! BTW my drink that is pictured is their Mule I just got it sans alcohol and def recommend.

Lets talk dessert because I was very skeptical about their Perfecto Pizza which consists of a pizza crust base, nutella, chocolate chips, and marshmallows. Well it surprised me y’all and basically became my favourite thing on the menu. It is honestly worth the visit just for dessert and drinks IMO.

If you are looking for new Pizza Spot around Denton area I 10/10 recommend checking out Earls because you won’t be disappointed TRUST me!

After Leaving Earls I headed to Bumbershoot BBQ which, fun fact, is actually right next door to Earls! I really love the whole set up that Bumbershoot has going on as well. The airstream is ADORABLE AF and probably the coolest thing ever is they have paint that they let you use to paint ANYWHERE in their space. I’m talking tables, benches, the fences, you name it. So of course I had to take part for this post ;)

I tried the Sliced Brisket Sandwich, Loaded Tots, and Two Meat BBQ Plate with Brisket, Chicken, Slaw, and Potato Salad. Everything was delicious but my favourite thing had to be the Loaded Tots! Somehow the brisket on the tots with all the fixings worked PERF and it was just fabulous.

If you’re a BBQ lover you will L-O-V-E Bumbershoots and make sure you try the Loaded Tots if you go!

From Bumbershoots I was off to Barley & Board! I was so pumped to finally be trying them because I have heard SO many good things and I am also having an event there later on this month.

Now Barley & Board was right up my alley because I love getting to nibble on a variety of different things so these boards were my JAM! I tried the Cheese Board and the Sweet Potato Hummus, both of which I HIGHLY recommend. I don’t drink but tried the Mimosa flight sans Champagne just to get a taste of the flavours and YALL, if you love Mimosas this is for you for SURE!

Barley and Board won my heart and I will 1000% be back even after my event for all the nibbles!

Last but NOT least I ended my Denton food tour at LSA Burger which is across the street from Barley & Board!

If you’re a burger lover than HOW have you not been to LSA Burger yet??? Because you guys, this is legit a burger lovers dream. You can create your own burgers or order off the menu, honestly there are SO many options. So here is what I got. I ordered the Chili Cheese Fries, The Waylon Burger W Mac & Cheese, The Bohemian which is actually a veggie burger, and The Chicken Tenders because how can I not??! The fries were killer like literally some of the best child cheese fries I have ever had and both burgers were amazing but I definitely favoured the Waylon. The Chicken Tenders were also delicious, crunchy on the outside and perfectly cooked on the inside AND not slimy like some are.

LSA Burger also has live music so you can chow down while listening to local artists perform which I thought was really neat! They also do this thing called a “Sundown Toast” where they give everyone a small drink to toast with as the sun is setting. I missed that unfortunately but will definitely be making it back to see that for sure!

I had such a fun time getting to explore Denton’s food scene and I hope this post entices all my DFW readers to head to Denton to try some of their amazing foodie spots out. If you go to any of them definitely hit me up on any of my socials or below in the comments and let me know what you think!

Can we just take a minute to admire this gorgeous room and THAT VIEW though * insert heart eyes * like all the goals. I literally would just lounge and take in the view all the time because it is gorgeous!

I had the pleasure of being upgraded to the Gold Lounge and let me just tell you guys it is SO WORTH IT!!! The breakfast is freaking amazing and I would have been lost without it to feed my inner fatty.

Besides the Gold Lounge the Fairmont has tons of other fab accommodations like their gorgeous pool. They also have an A M A Z I N G gym where I went to burn off all the yummy food from the lounge ;)

Speaking of food, the room service at the Fairmont is DELICIOUS you guys. I truly lived my best life watching movies and enjoying their wings and fries.

I don’t have a single negative thing to say about my stay at the Fairmont Dallas except that it ended too soon ;) If you need a staycation or you’re in town visiting TRUST ME you will want to stay at the Fairmont!
