• Raquel McComb Blog Turns One


    Happy Blogiversary to me me! You guys, my blog turns ONE today! Wow, one year ago today I decided to launch my blog and hit publish on my first post! I had been thinking about starting a blog for a while but it was a little scary thinking about putting yourself out there so publicly. I remember being so nervous and wondering if anyone would even read but I am so glad that I decided to finally go through with it! I remember trying to decide how long I should purchase my hosting services for and deciding on one year “just in case”. But woah, this year has gone by…

    Birthday Brunching + Perfect Wrap Dress

    It’s my birthday month! Yes, month, because we all know it’s not just a day celebration but a month long celebration! I celebrated my birthday with my closest friends with a Sunday brunch that turned into Sunday Funday! We brunched at Emmaline and it was delicious as usual-everyone enjoyed their food and morning cocktails. If you still have not been you need to add to your list! It is such a cute place and the food is good. This shirred wrap dress was such a hit! LOVE this dress…I received so many compliments! Hugs just the right places and would look great on most body types. The top may need…

    Cinco De Mayo: My Three Go-To Margarita Spots

    Happy Cinco De Mayo eve! Are you ready to fiesta for Cinco De Drinko?! So, as you may or may not already know, Cinco De Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day but rather the commemoration of the Mexican Army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862–Mexican Independence Day is celebrated on September 16th. Cinco De Mayo is mostly celebrated in the United States, I guess you can say it’s more of an American holiday than a Mexican holiday, ha! Basically another excuse to party and drink with a theme! Moving on from the two second history lesson…my three go to margarita spots! These are the…

    Rodeo Roundup: 7 Things to Do at Rodeo Houston

    Howdy! Rodeo Houston is coming to a close but you still have 5 days left to make it out this season! That’s more than enough time to go out there and have a great time with friends or family. This year was my third year as a Rodeo Houston volunteer and I finally made it out there Sunday as a guest. I had only been out there for my shifts this season–I didn’t realize there was only a week left of rodeo! I was given suite tickets for Sunday so my hubby, friends and I made a day of it. There is so much to do, a little bit of…

    Emmaline: Must Try Houston Brunch Spot

    Who doesn’t love a good Sunday brunch?! My good friend and I made plans to have brunch and decided to try this Instagram worthy place and we were not disappointed! Y’all, let me start by saying: ALL. THE. HEART. EYES. for Emmaline! This new Houston restaurant is such a beautiful brunch spot! Emmaline is described as an American Restaurant with Europen influences. We did not have reservations (I don’t think they take Sunday reservations) so we decided to arrive around opening time. The exterior of the restaurant is painted in all white brick with black window, fence and stair case accents. The beautiful name Emmaline just pops from the white…

    Dip Powder Nail: Tried It and Loving It!

    This past Thursday was mani/pedi time so I finally decided to see what all the rage was about and tried the Dip Powder Nail! Lately it seemed like every time I went to get my mani/pedi someone next to me was getting the Dip Powder Nail and I was curious. So the last time I was there I asked what it was and decided I would try it on my next mani. I usually do walk-in at Venetian Nail Spa in Vintage Park and have not been dissapointed–everyone I’ve had has done a good job. This time Tee at Venetian Nail Spa is who did my dip powder nail mani…

    Lunching at Lucienne

    So it’s Friday and lunch time and who doesn’t like to get out of the office for lunch?! Especially when it’s a new spot in town! So a couple of my friends and I decide to walk over and check out the new restaurant “Lucienne”, located in the new Hotel Alessandra in GreenStreet downtown Houston. Hotel Alessandra opened its doors in October 2017, it is a very beautiful hotel with simple and modern decor. As you enter the hotel, you are greeted by friendly doormen, a large beautiful stair way and small seating area. You can either go up the stairs or take the elevator to level two where the…
