All or Nothing

Nothing, AZ, photoshoot, model, blogger

 

Along US highway 93… approximately 100 miles northwest of Phoenix… lies a turnout. This is no ordinary turnout you see, there are remains of a couple foundations, as well as an abandoned mini-mart. But what stands out, is the weathered, aged billboard that reads, NOTHING. This uninhabited… settlement, if you will, was founded in 1977. During its peak, there was a whopping population of FOUR people. There was a gas station and a mini-mart. Sadly, the town was completely abandoned by 2005.

In 2008, a man tried to revive the little settlement, and opened up a pizza shop. He also had plans on opening the mini-mart back up, and creating accommodations for RVs. But alas, we all see how that turned out. Now, what remains is literally…nothing. But it’s definitely worth a stop for photos if you happen to be traveling from Phoenix to Kingman or Vegas.

A Little Bit of Paris at Houston’s Cafe Poetes

Cafe Poetes is still relatively new to Houston’s Midtown neighborhood. It was created by Karine Favre-Massartic- who designed the 1,500 square foot space on W. Gray St. to recreate the style that was used to create the Orangerie du Parc de Bagatelle in Paris, which was built in 1835. She wanted the project to be a marriage of architecture, history, poetry (specifically from the 19th Century), and pastry. The chic (and highly Instagrammable) light-filled cafe has, since opening, been known for the eclairs (both sweet and savory), the quiche, a variety of pastries (obviously), the hot chocolate with blooming flower, and a variety of lattes (I personally like the Matcha Lavender Latte). They now offer Afternoon Tea, which I’ll have to try when I visit Houston again.

Into the Countryside…

Round Top, TX is home to 90 people most of the year. But every fall and spring, thousands of people gather for Antiques Weekend- where there are hundreds of vintage and antique vendors throughout Round Top, Warrenton, and other surrounding communities.

Sofia and I took a road trip to the hamlet a couple weeks ago. I’m usually there during the antiques festivities, so it was sorta weird being there “off-season.” We had lunch at Teague’s Tavern in Henkel Square. They have the most incredible veggie burger I’ve had (at least in Texas). We ventured over to Junk Gypsy– which is this magical, whimsical retail space with vintage, country-chic, and bohemian finds. After a few hours of letting our food settle from lunch, we went to Royer’s Pie Haven for a piece of pie. Later that evening, we went to Round Top Mercantile for snacks, since we weren’t supper hungry for a large dinner. Overall, there’s not a whole lot to do there, but it’s always worth it to take a drive to neighboring communities. I also recommend hanging out outside in the evenings and catching the nice sunsets.
