5 Dallas Restaurants You Shouldn’t Miss

I love food and love trying new restaurants especially when I am traveling. Prior to my business trip to Dallas, Texas, I had already researched a few restaurants in the area. Then I recruited a couple of co-workers and made a plan to hit these spots while we were in the city. And if I do say so myself, I picked a pretty good list of restaurants. The food was so amazing , that I wanted to share with you. So here is my list of the 5 Dallas You Restaurants Shouldn’t Miss. 1. RJ’s Mexican Cuisine – Historic West End The first thing you need to know about RJ’s Mexican Cuisine is that Happy Hour runs Monday – Friday from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Yes, you read that right. 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Want to start the party early? You definitely can do so at RJ’s with their $5 margaritas…

12 Things to Do Before You Travel

I am the queen of procrastination, so whenever I have a trip coming up, I usually wait until the last couple days before the trip to get anything and everything I need for it, unless it’s clothes. But if you’re the frantic, last-minute traveler/packer, then you probably don’t even think about what needs to be done to prepare for your trip because “you have so much time before you travel”. After several business trips, I finally made a list of 12 things you should do (at least a week) before you travel. TRAVEL PREP 1. DO RESEARCH If you haven’t already done so, research your destination. Find out about the local customs and holidays that might be observed during your trip. Research the best means of transportation and all the do’s and don’ts of your destination country. 2. CHECK THE WEATHER You might need to pack an umbrella or some extra layers…

Travel Beauty Essentials

I usually prefer to check my luggage when traveling because I don’t want to deal with lugging it around in the airport. However, when it comes to my beauty essentials, I pack those in my carry-on. I never want to be caught in a situation where my luggage is lost or my flight is delayed and I am left without the essentials. And because I travel frequently, I like to keep my toiletry bag always stocked with necessities, so when I’m ready to go on my next trip, they’re already packed. Here’s a list of beauty essentials to pack when traveling: HYGIENE Body wash or soap Body lotion Deodorant Toothbrush and toothpaste FACIAL CARE PRODUCTS Kiehl’s Face Wash I’m addicted to this face wash…

Travel Essentials: Must Have for Your Travel First Aid Kit

I often travel for work and although we usually bring a first aid kit, I usually like to pack my own personal first aid kit. Making your own travel first aid kit is easier and cheaper than you think. Here are some of the basics you should include: 1. Neosporin or a similar antibiotic cream Use on minor cuts and abrasions. 2. Anti-itch cream For bug bites like mosquitos 3. Burn gel or aloe gel Great for sunburns or other first degree burns 4. Anti-inflammatory cream Good for sprains or lower back pain 5. Diarrhea relief This is always good to have just in case you’re hit with Montezuma’s Revenge and you eat or drink something that doesn’t agree with you. 6. Anti-diarrhea pills Imodium is great 7. Pain pills (Ibuprofen or acetaminophen) For headaches, aches and pains, hangovers, etc. 8. Motion sickness relief For the boat rides and bumpy bus or plane rides 9. Benadryl or other…

Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck – Dallas, TX

Working long hours on show site can be very exhausting, so having a good restaurant or two in your hotel, comes in very handy. Thankfully the Hyatt Regency Dallas had several dining options, so one night my co-workers and I decided to check out Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck. I’d seen lines at the hostess desk for the restaurant, so I hopped on my trusty Open Table app and made a quick reservation for three. Thirty minutes later, we walked up to the hostess desk and were greeted by the most friendly and knowledgeable host. He gave us a little history on the restaurant and the city of Dallas, then ushered us to the elevator. Five Sixty sits 560 feet atop the Reunion Tower and offers a 360-degree view of the Dallas skyline. So if you’re afraid of heights, you might want to skip this restaurant. But if you love a great view, then you will…
