Happy Mon(Daé) 015

A new week means a new chapter and new opportunities for successes and failures. I may be a little exhausted but that never stops me as I run on optimism and caffeine. Fierce the Runway was fabulous last night and I can’t wait to get founder Jaymce Patterson’s entire story. Until then cheers to the…

412 Fresh: 4 Events in the 412

Sometimes it seems like there are a million things to do in Pittsburgh or nothing at all. There is no in between. With the weekend on the horizon and a Superior Motors reservation tomorrow I’m excited to attempt to check out some of the coolest events in town. Here are four events that need to…

Want Fries With That?

When you’re in Pittsburgh you do as the Yinzers do. French fries aren’t just a side dish here they’re sometimes the star! Sure you can be basic and just get Potato Patch fries with everything on them at Kennywood but there is so much more to Pittsburgh fries than just that. Here are some of…

412 Fresh: Alla Famiglia

The only thing that I enjoy more than eating yummy food is taking photos of said food with my Samsung Galaxy S8. There’s even a food mode built into the camera. I of course didn’t use it when capturing these flowers but did use it when I snapped this photo of Alla Famiglia’s tiramisu. Turns…

26 Shades of ColourPop Lippies

Growing up as the only girl I was never that into makeup but the older I got the more my obsession with lip-gloss and lipstick grew. I knew I had a problem when I found this awesome lipstick holder on Amazon and within a few weeks it was full.  Instagram introduced me to ColourPop and…

412 Fresh: 4 Favorite Tacos in the 412

As far as I’m concerned Taco Tuesday is every day in the Burgh. There’s so many taco spots popping up in Pittsburgh that it would be a disservice to your taste buds to only eat tacos on Tuesdays. For research purposes (of course) I’ve checked out quite a few taco spots and some of my…

412 Fresh: Pizza Fest is Coming

Americans buy more than three billion pizzas a year. It would be an understatement to say that Americans love their pizza. I am one of those Americans. Pittsburgh is no exception the pizza frenzy. I’m pretty sure we all consume so much pizza that it could be its own food group. June 3rd from 12-6…

Dancing with Strangers: Thrival Fest 2016

  The Chainsmokers are everywhere and September of 2016 they were here in Pittsburgh rocking Thrival Festival at Swissvale’s (how it’s under the Rankin Bridge & in Swissvale I’ll never understand) Carrie Furnace. It’s such a beautiful venue and is the perfect mix of industrial and serene. Every spot is a good spot when it…

Happy Mon(Daè) 013

To say I’ve been embracing my  inner free spirit would be the understatement of the century as I’ve always been one to follow wherever my soul takes me. My mom is super encouraging as she’s always telling me that the worst thing that can happen is you get a no and as Jojo says best, I’ve heard…

The S8 Experience 

At first glance the Samsung Galaxy S8 looks and feels exactly like the S7 (without the buttons). It’s been a few weeks since I used my Jump! Plan at T-mobile and traded up and I must say I’m impressed. Samsung has outdone themselves with this one!  Sure,  not having buttons took some time getting used to…

412 Fresh: Wigle Whiskey Sets up Shop Downtown

When I think of whiskey I think of an old fashioned and old men. That was before attending Wigle Whiskey’s tap room opening at the Omni William Penn Hotel. The opening had live music, whiskey samplings, a build your own old fashioned bar, hors d’oeuvres, and this pistachio chocolate bark that I could’ve devoured by…

412 Fresh: Istanbul Sofra

I like to write and I also call myself eating my way through Pittsburgh. So it was a no brainer decision to leave trail of Yelp reviews behind me. I had no idea people even read my reviews until I was invited to be a Yelp Elite. Yelp Elite is a group of Yelpers who…
