Villa Wanderlust pop up! June 6th 2015

I was super thrilled to participate in Villa Wanderlust on Saturday June 6th - a high end pop-up boutique in a super hip bright blue house in midtown Houston! The pop up shop featured the gorgeous wares of of Lamochi and Priya, Brooke Feather and delicious food from Roost (one of my local Montrose faves!)

We provided gorgeous summery panna-cotta tart bites in raspberry and pistachio and lemon and honeycomb decorated with mini meringue kisses as well as a vanilla cake with fresh raspberry frosting and decorated with fresh raspberries and gorgeous fresh flowers.

We met some gorgeous Houston girls there and may have indulged in a little spot of shopping in between serving sweets! :)

Houston Food Bloggers Collective - Meet the Makers - May 21st

I love meeting new people and the people in Houston are just so dang friendly that I meet lovely new people every day! :) In the short time I have been here I have met so many gorgeous and talented creative business owners, DIY-ers, food bloggers and artists its so inspiring!

So, what to do when you meet someone you admire and think is fabulous? Think of a way to collaborate with them of course!

Our first event in Houston - the Houston Food Bloggers Collective - Meet the Makers evening on Thursday May 21st.

The evening saw 8 Houston small business owners introduce their brands to Houston foodies and tastemakers. I met so many lovely makers at the event including:

We had 3 of our mini cupcakes at the event for tasting, Donut go breaking my heart, The Duchess of Sprinkles and Confessions of a Choc-a-holic! And I'm so pleased to say we sold out of samples!!  :) It was fantastic to get to speak to people and understand what they liked and what their favourite flavors are so we can continue to work on cooking up all sorts of delicious sweets! 

A huge thank you to Claire (@thepetiteprofessional ) and Kylie ( @immaeatthat ) from the Houston Food Bloggers Collective for organising such a great grass roots local event.
