The Grove @ Discovery Green: A beer tasting

One of the coolest things to do over the summer in Houston is to enjoy Sundown at the Grove.  For just $15 Wednesday nights July 9th-Sept 17th you can enjoy a flight of beer from a featured brewery and custom chef prepared food pairings with each beer.  It’s pretty awesome (hot, but awesome)!

Restaurant Review: Liberty Kitchen and Oysterette

There is little that Jimmy and I enjoy more than going out for an amazing dinner.

Foundation/Contouring VLOG

Foundation/Contouring VLOG
