Houstonia has Landed

Brace yourself fellow media junkies, a new magazine has hit the city. Houstonia Magazine promises to deliver culinary reviews, culture and deeply reported stories focused around the fourth largest city in the U.S.. Houstonia unveiled its inaugural issue in an over-the-top warehouse party filled with the who’s who of Houston’s social scene. Martha Turner, Sam Malone, Dominique Sachse and Edward Sanchez were just a few of the hundreds of local partygoers ready to celebrate in an evening of cultural infusion.

  Although print has become an endangered species, with the optimistic energy and passion of Houstonia Founders Nicole and Scott Vogel, I hope to see this publication around town for years to come.

The Salon in the Sky

Urban Retreat has been dubbed the “Salon in the Sky” and rightfully so. This River Oaks gem has magnificent views of  Houston’s skyline with a peaceful rooftop space that is truly an urban sanctuary. I retreated to the luxury salon for a “Night of Beauty,” a glam event to introduce L’Vere, a cosmetic line sold at exclusive salons. Special thanks to the PR gurus at Lydia Baehr Public Relations for additional photos.

A Newbie’s Review of SXSW 2013

In a nutshell…Austin is weird, and I drank the kool-aide. When they say “RSVPing does not guarantee admission” they mean it. Macklemore is really 10 different people, he was everywhere. The best nights are the ones that happen on accident.
