5 Tips To Sleep Better And Wake Up Feeling Refreshed

According to a study conducted by The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2012, thirty percent of Americans are sleep deprived. That’s one in 3 adults are not getting enough sleep on a regular basis. Adequate sleep is an integral part of an individual’s overall being. It is during sleep that our body metabolizes, regenerates, and replenishes whatever needs to be replenished and the lack thereof affects our performance whether it’s in our job or family. Have you ever…

5 Reasons to Give The Gift of Jewelry

  The holidays are coming up and some, if not all, are probably already shopping for gifts for their loved ones.

Top 13 Austin Spots You Must Absolutely Visit

A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I headed out to Austin for a 4 day/3 night stay in the Hill Country. I’ve always loved Austin and even though it’s only 3 hours away north west of Houston, I’m not sure why I’ve never gone more often. In my opinion, it’s the best closest city to H-Town and the 3 hours is definitely worth the drive. We had such an amazing time and I’d like to share with you…

5 Helpful Tips For A Stress-Free Road Trip

I can’t believe that summer just got by so fast! I think in some cities and states, school have already started. But here in Houston, we still have a couple more weeks of summer vacay before school officially starts.

We just had a tax-free weekend and the malls were crazy packed with moms and children alike buying school supplies. If you have kids who are going back to school or if you are going back to school yourself, hope that you’re keeping your sanity amidst the craziness and chaos of preparation.

If, on the other hand, you’re one of those who have purchased your school supplies weeks ahead of time but would like to squeeze in a little bit more of an R&R…perhaps a quick road trip with your family, here are some tips I would like to share for a stress-free travel.

Staycation at The Woodlands Resort & Spa

At the beginning of Summer, my husband and I were doing quite a few staycations. We’re in the middle of a transition and so even though we would have loved to travel farther or go out of the country for a few more honeymoons, it was just not possible.

Thankfully, there’s something this called ‘Staycation.’ And whoever coined the term and the act thereof is a winner in my book!

We started our summer staycations off with a stay at the Woodlands Resort and Spa which was about 45 minutes north of Houston. I’ve always loved the Woodlands area and to be able to stay there for a couple of nights was just amazing.

Where To Dine in Houston: Le Colonial

Houston is very multicurally diversed and that’s one of the things I truly love about this city. Part of our diversity is food! I’ve said before – when it comes to dining and places to hang, we don’t disappoint. 

Craving for anything specific? Just ask, we might have it! We’re huge on food trucks as well as fine dining and anything in between. That’s how we Texans roll! We can wear boots while trying on every dish at a Food Truck Festival or wear stilettos at a fine dining! 

You feel like eating BBQ? Of course we have it! You feel like eating South African food, we have it as well! How about some Italian, French, Mexican, or Asian? We have them all!

Speaking of Asian, do you know that, based on the most recent census, the Asian population is Houston’s fastest growing group? And a lot of Houstonians have to come love Vietnamese food, including yours truly. Unlike in Miami where I came from a decade ago, Houston has a ton of Vietnamese restaurants from mom and pop to elegant ones and not all of them are created equal!
