The Sound at Cypress Water or The Sound TX is located right on the edge of North Dallas, it is basically a new neighbourhood that over looks North Lake. They have everything from amazing food, gorgeous apartments, outdoor games, a boho market where local vendors set up shop, and live music. I can see this becoming THE spot for the summer for sure.

Lets talk grand opening now. So when I arrived I decided to head straight for the Boho market because you know ya girl loves to shop!

Everything was so adorable and I LOVE that it is all local vendors because I am all about supporting my local DFW businesses. This market alone is worth a trip to The Sound honestly!

Right next to the Boho Market are some fun outdoor games like Jenga and Cornhole. I think it is perf for all the kids and guys that get dragged to the Boho Market to kill time while us ladies shop ;)

After finishing at the Boho Market I stopped to get some photos at Retrograph aka the CUTEST photo booth EVER. I am such a sucker( insert Jo Bros song here) for photo booths y’all!

I went straight from the Photo Booth to my meet and greet with Pat Green who was the headliner for the grand opening. How cute are we you guys?! I am the only one not looking at the right camera but it’s still cute right??

The meet and greeting definitely worked up my appetite so I headed over to Ascension for some refuelling. Ascension is just ONE of the SIX fabulous places to dine at The Sound. They also have Eno’s Pizza, Rodeo Goat, Flying Fish, Flying Saucer, and Landon Winery. The foodie options are a 10/10 for sure.

After refuelling I made a quick stop at the ADORBS bathroom/outhouse, not to actually use them but for the photo op because they’re literally TOO cute. The judgement from people ACTUALLY using them was real though y'all! #doitforthegram

Then I went to check out the opening act Bri Bagwell who killed it! Oh and on my way over to the pavilion I ran into 99.5 The Wolf who were so sweet to let me take pics in their booth :P

Finally it was time for Pat Green to take the stage and he was awesome. His stage presence was amazing and the crowd was ecstatic! Even my Mom was lowkey fan girling.

All in all this was definitely one of the BEST grand openings I have ever been a part of and I am so glad I got the opportunity to experience everything The Sound had to offer. I HIGHLY recommend all my DFW readers check this spot out because it does not disappoint.

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

Deck the Halls Coffee Shop

HIII BABES!!!

It has been a hot minute hasn’t it!? I have been taking a lot of down time during December to just relax with friends and family and to also get ready for the New Year. I have a lot of fun stuff coming to Basic Blogger B*tch and I can’t wait to share it with you all. Even though I am in holiday relaxation mode I didn’t forget about you all, in fact I am going to be sharing one of my favourite holiday coffee shops with you guys today!

Deck the Halls Coffee Shop also known as Fiction Coffee the rest of the year, is literally one of my favourite places to chill at during December. They completely change their regular decor to look like a magical Christmas cottage and it gives you all the Christmas-y feels.

Lets start with the wall outside. This is literally any influencer/blogger’s dream, to be honest it’s anyone with a cameras dream. You can’t not want a picture with it!

Can we also just take a minute to admire this decor inside? I feel like I am in Mrs. Clause’s house every time I walk in. I would honestly be there everyday if I could!!

Take a look at this holiday menu you guys. Those names are E V E R Y T H I N G am I right?! My personal fave is the Falala-Latte(The second picture) it tastes like Christmas in a cup.

If you live in Dallas I 1000% recommend stopping in because you will never want to leave once you do ;) It will definitely get you in the Christmas spirit. DTHCS is open everyday leading up to Christmas Day and their last day is the 31st, so you can go anytime between now and then.

I hope you are all having a wonderful December so far!

Great Balls Of Fitness

Hey My Babes!

I hope you are all having a FAB Monday. I am one of those weirdos who actually loves Mondays because I love starting off a new, fresh week full of opportunities!

So today I wanna talk to you all about balls, no not THOSE balls(heads out of the gutter people) Protein Balls, Collagen Balls, Probiotic Balls, and Energy Balls. Health Lab is making the most delicious and healthy wellness balls and I am SO here for it!

The company is based in Australia and was created by Jess Thomas who wanted to create a clean, yummy, sweet but healthy treat for women on the go and thats EXACTLY what she did when she founded Health Lab.

I love how clean and free of additives/preservatives Health Lab’s products are. That is something I definitely take very seriously and anytime I can find products that take it as serious as I do I love supporting them. All of Health Lab’s products are free of artificial colours, artificial flavours, refined sugars, palm oils, GMOs, preservatives, gluten, and fillers.

They are so convenient and perfect for all you busy boss babes. I love throwing them into my purse for a long day of events or meetings and I always keep a few in my gym bag for before or after my workouts. Definitely a great snack when you are on the go or traveling.

THIS FLAVOUR IS EVERYTHINGGGG

THIS FLAVOUR IS EVERYTHINGGGG

I am definitely Health Lab’s newest and forever fan. I can’t recommend them enough! You all need to at least try them out because I know once you do you will be HOOKED! For all my Texas babes you can actually buy these at H-E-B so don’t walk, run to your nearest location and pick some up!

As always if you have any questions or comments leave them down below or find me on any of my socials! Slide into my DMs anytime ;)

I hope you all have a great week!!

Alex
