We wanted to give a shout to the ever eclectic, yet always hoppin’ Heights!

They have a great variety of local businesses and restaurants and so many places to walk or bike. It’s such a wonderful neighborhood and one of our favorites to just hang out, grab a drink, and go shopping!

If you are in the Heights and would like a personal shout out, we can help you out with that too. Check it out!!

The Houston Pride Parade will be back in 2021. It’s sad we had to miss so many amazing things this past year, but there are plans in the making to bring back your favorite events!

You won’t want to miss out on the largest LGBTQ+ event in the Southwest!! Each year they never fail to entertain all of the spectators with an empowering blend of light, color, and sound with beautiful floats, costumes, and performances.

Self care is a top priority! Take a face-cation at FaceHaus to get that glow you deserve!!

We had the chance to check out FaceHaus in Rice Village and can’t believe we’ve waited this long to get our first facial. Huge thank you to FaceHaus for leaving us feeling rejuvenated and with a natural glow!

Treat someone or even yourself. Book an appointment online or purchase an e-gift card!!

Every third Thursday of the month experience the ONLY Feel Good Market in the Heights!

Amazing food, incredible local vendors, and of course all the good vibes. You get the best of both worlds; spend the first two hours in the sun and after the sun sets, MKT Sunset Market really shines!!

There are always things to do in Houston, you just have to know where to look! We have you covered from the best bars to parks, and also hidden gems.
