Hotel Spotlight: Hotel Teatro | Denver, Colorado


When we travel, we love seeking out unique boutique hotels to experience a new side of every city.

One of the best parts about attending SMU is that our college friends are from ALL over the country.

City Guide: Las Vegas – The Adult Way


When I hear Las Vegas, I immediately think of bachelorette parties (I had mine here and it was a blast!), clubs, pool parties, etc. Though the party scene in Vegas is pretty wild, the city has so much more to offer than bottle-popping and dancing, such as shows, restaurants, spas, shopping, and more! This year, my […]

One of the most common misconceptions of Dallas is the city fits the stereotypical mold of “Texas” – cowboys, horses, ranches, etc. Though Dallas is a cultural metroplex full of art, fashion, music, and more, it’s not too hard to escape the city and experience more of what Texas has to offer!
