babes xo is a place for modern babes to embrace life, be everything you want to be and nothing you don’t.

Being a babe means being unapologetically yourself. It means you don’t have to choose between being feminine and being political or between loving fitness and also loving food and cocktails more than society says you should. At babes xo, we believe in women being all that we are with no judgement.

Formerly Babes & Beignets, babes xo, began in New Orleans, La. in 2014 when the paths of two babes crossed and the rest is history!

What we believe in:

– Embracing every babe’s unique self
– Kindness, towards yourself and others
– Not apologizing for having strong opinions
– But, also not taking life too seriously
– Self care above everything!

Her free time is spent in search of the trendiest new restaurants and bars, doing hot yoga, spending time with her miniature dachshund Andouille “douille” and taking in the culture of the city around every corner!
