“A Recipe For Success” at the Driskill Hotel

My first day in Austin was already off to a fabulous start. I had a delightful lunch with my friend and Austinite Veronica, at a popular hangout on the Eastside, Blue Dahlia, which was followed by an eventful afternoon at the historic Driskill Hotel. I was thrilled that I was able to hear my favorite blogger Emily Schuman, from the fashion and lifestyle blog Cupcakes and Cashmere, deliver her inspiring, and insightful speech “ARecipe For Success”. I was also able to meet some other Cupcakes and Cashmere fans and even a fellow blogger and writer for the ManiCurious, Natalie. After the conference came to an end, I walked down the stairs of the majestic hotel, wandered through the exquisite lobby, and ended up at a SXSW art showcase. The showcase featured quite a mesmerizing display of photographic images for such a compact space. I then topped off my day at the Driskill Hotel with a Bluebonnet Mojito and warm biscuit at the hotel’s cafe down the hall.

Auntie Em’s Kitchen

I had the pleasure of having lunch in the charming college town of Eagle Rock with my clever friend and Occidental student, Alex. Alex and I met in the Caribbean and instantly bonded over our love of Auntie Em’s Kitchen’s red velvet cupcakes. We agreed that a visit to Auntie Em’s was definitely necessary when we returned to L.A. The cafe and bakery is a cute and popular local hang out that serves a variety of amazing dishes, as well as the most decadent desserts. So follow the modern day yellow brick road which is unfortunately the 405, to this hidden little eatery and don’t forget to try the tempting red velvet cupcakes.
