Based in New Orleans and Houston, babes xo is a place for modern babes seeking inspiration to enjoy life to the fullest.

What does being a babe mean? To us, it means getting the most out of life from eating and drinking to travel, relationships and fashion, all while hustling hard.

We believe that women of all ages can be babes! It’s simple, if you feel like a babe, you are one.

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

Learn more about founders Alessandra and Maggie below.

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!


Maggie grew up a small town girl outside of New Orleans. She has lived in Nola and worked in public relations for the past six years and doesn’t plan on leaving anytime soon. 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!


A dog-mom extraordinaire to three adopted furry friends, Alessandra resides in Houston where she works in digital marketing and spends her spare time discovering the hottest spots around HTX and beyond. Originally from Guatemala City, Guatemala, she is known by her friends and family for being a pro at planning luxe travel on a budget.
