Welcome to Houston!

Texas 067

Hi friends! We’ve gotten quite a few emails asking where I’m at since I’ve been a little MIA on the blog and Fox 6 lately. As mentioned here, I’m living in Houston for a short while, but will be back in Atlanta soon! Tamika has been picking up my slack :), but I try to make up for it by tweeting a little.

A belle has been having a ball in Houston! I got the treat of my lil old life when Tamika and the mom came to visit me recently. This post will mark the first in our series of posts regarding our sisterly adventure. Y’all know how we roll!

That’s actually myself and NOT the sis–LOL!!!

H-Town welcomed us properly with our stay in Downtown’s Hotel ICON. Once a former bank, this luxurious hotel boasts an old vault, iconic restaurant (with a to die for breakfast buffet), breath taking Grecian design, and super comfy rooms. Since I’m talking about their breakfast check out what we had below. We have a chair waiting just for you!

We loved the color scheme outside our hotel room and inside. When you check them out do go and look at the restroom on the main floor. Its Asian theme is so lovely. Our room was cozy, yet roomy and the walls were adorned with pics of cows–only in Texas.

Hotel ICON‘s bathroom is very spacious. It has a tub and shower which is great for days when two belles need to get ready at the same time. Right?!

Staying in the heart of Downtown Houston is perfect while touring. The sis and I were close to everything, with lots of cool joints within walking distance. We let valet take the car and we headed out to several areas in the city on foot.

At night we roamed the streets of H-Town and even checked out this quaint spot that Beyoncé and Jay Z ate at recently called Sparrow Bar. Check out some of what we sipped & chowed down on there.

Great list of dessert, but I chose the sin in the to-go container below!

Its name? Affogato! Taste? Toooo good. It consisted of: salted caramel sauce, bitter sweet chocolate-pecan toffee, caramel popcorn AND more!

This is just a taste of all of the fun we got into. Pun surely intended 🙂 Please stay connected with us via the channels below…
