About the blog…
Born of the desire to have an honest online destination exploring lifestyle in Dallas and Collin counties, I created and launched Pop Goes the City in the summer of 2011. As a reflection of my life, Pop Goes the City is focused on lifestyle and events in Dallas and Collin counties. It serves as a platform for me to share information on local businesses, people, shopping and my must-have finds in housewares, accessories, fashion and beauty.
I love to talk to people and Pop Goes the City offers the perfect avenue to interview metroplex movers and shakers, business owners and influencers. In turn, I can introduce readers to the people behind the things they love most in the metroplex.
Since launching Pop Goes the City, I have had the pleasure to interact with amazing people outside of the metroplex as well. Indeed, almost all of Pop Goes the City will consist of local information. However periodically, I will also write about “people and things around the web and beyond the metroplex” that I think North Texans should know about through interviews with personalities that entertain me and mentions of brands that I love.
