We are checking off our 2018 travel wish list slowly, but surely! New York City is…
We are excited to embark on a new journey, one that we think you will want to join. Today, a chapter is not ending, but a vision expanding.
Babes & Beignets began in 2014 when we were introduced by a mutual friend before a night out in a town that was still relatively new to us both, our beloved New Orleans. We were both young, curious, embarking on new careers as “adults” and always ready to explore all that our city had to offer. With that said, we connected immediately. It wasn’t long before we did everything together: met up after work to try the newest happy hours and chatted endlessly about the restaurants, events and festivals we should be going to on the weekends. Babes & Beignets was formed to document our adventures in the best city in the world and to fill a void by doing so from the perspective of two young women.
Since then, we have met so many inspiring people from restaurateurs to business owners to foodies and generally passionate New Orleanians. We have had the best meals of our lives, drank a lot and attended more events than we can count. All the while, learning the ins and outs of running a business and developing a brand together. We’ve been shocked, humbled and felt honored to have people rely on us and ask us to be a part of amazing things.
Most of all, we have fallen even more in love with New Orleans.
When we learned one of us would be moving to Houston, we were both sad yet excited for a new chapter. We talked about how our brand has evolved and especially how we have evolved as women in the past five and a half years. With the realization that our interests and goals had matured as well as the world around us, we thought it was a fitting time for our brand to do the same.
babes xo is a new and improved Babes & Beignets. It will be a place to support modern women of all ages in being babes, which to us means living life to the fullest, working hard and being true to oneself.
We won’t ever stop talking about or loving New Orleans. We are simply evolving beyond that. From eating and drinking to travel, relationships and fashion, we are creating a place where you can have it all online. We will interview even more Badass Babes so you can continue to be inspired by women from all over.
We are so grateful to everyone who has believed in us or followed along on our journey. And we hope you will continue with us along this road.
As always, thank you for your support. We love you!
Alessandra & Maggie
