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 life, food, style 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 me 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 post 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 or mentions of brands that I love.
In short, Pop Goes The City™ is a compilation of all of the things I love…and maybe a few of the things I hate.
