Making the move to Dallas years ago was a big decision, but ended up being one of the best ones we’ve made. With so many local businesses we’ve grown to know and love, I wanted to share just a few that I couldn't imagine living without now. Whether you are a Dallas local or visiting for a fun weekend trip, these are our favorite, must-see stops!


If you're looking to come spend a weekend in our favorite southern city, you must stay at The Adolphus Hotel! It’s the most stunning hotel and right in the heart of the historic downtown district. Dallas has some of the best food spots as well. We love Fachini for some amazing Italian or JD’s Chippery and Bird Bakery for sweet treats! Conveniently, all my favorite places to dine and snack are nestled in Highland Park Village, home to my absolute favorite shopping in all of Dallas. We love strolling through the Village whether for lunch or to stop by some of my favorite shops.

While the essence of Dallas can be fast paced and always moving, here are a few of my favorite spots to slow down and relax: The Joule Spa has come to be my favorite in town for massages and facials, Paint Nail Bar for the best mani pedis, or Voss Salon for beautiful hair styling. I’ve also grown to love the variety of workouts here! Body Bar has been my go-to, even while pregnant, for an upbeat and fun workout. I also love visiting Core Power Yoga when wanting to be a bit more zen, or even just a walk on Katy Trail. Living in Dallas has been nothing short of perfect, and I hope you all love these businesses just as much as I do. Plus, if you are visiting Dallas, don't forget to stop by our shop in the Knox-Henderson area for a fun day of browsing!
