My Last Post

Don't freak out, I'm not leaving blogland. I am, however, leaving Dateless in Dallas. Don't worry because I am still going to stick around and having said that, I have started a new blog that will allow me to be, well, me!

I present to you.... Bella And The City!


You know how they say the law of attraction will bring you whatever your mind is set to? I feel like calling myself dateless and the blog being Dateless in Dallas just really kept me that way; dateless. Plus, I don't want to have my brand have the name of 'Dallas' in it because it may also keep others who may not be from Dallas from even wanting to look at my blog thinking that I'm just talking about dating in Dallas. Does that make sense?

I feel like I'm breaking out of my shell as far as being able to blog about anything and everything I feel like without having anything tie me down. I feel like today is independence day of sorts because it is.

For my sponsors - I will be starting ads soon at the new blog and will work with you on doing shout out posts via twitter in the mean time. Thank you for your patience!!

As far as my linkups for Weekend Recap and Confessions of a Blogaholic; they will still be going on. I will update the buttons and post them by Friday.

So follow, comment, and love it because I am super excited about switching things up around here. Hope to see y'all in my new space.

Sugar Love Boutique

Harlowe Cardi Kimono in Medium by Sugar Love Boutique. Pop Geo Pendant necklace by Stella & Dot.

I haven't really talked much about the fall like I usually like to do around this time of year. It has been pretty warm out these days, but there's definitely times when we have cool mornings and that's when I love to throw on a kimono or a sweater. When Sugar Love Boutique approached me with their fall fashion, I couldn't help but jump on it. I liked their styles so much I added 3 other items to my wishlist.

This kimono is absolutely warm and perfect for the season. Especially when I'm in the office and it gets cold, it's very handy. This style reminds me of wearing a pancho crossed with a scarf with the tassels hanging all around it.

What do you like to wear for fall?

It's My Birthday!


Woohoo! I am turning 32 today and feeling truly blessed to be given another year to wreak some havoc. Not really, but I digress. This weekend recap I'm hosting it with my lovely co-host Lisa, who is out of town, but she's such a rockstar she still posts her blog so you can link up with her or with me.

I'll start off by saying this week I have an exciting surprise, err, unveiling if you will and I cannot wait to show you guys. Some of you already know, but it's gonna be such a treat once it's all done and ready to launch, eek!


Friday night my friend Jessie and I had dinner at Red Lobster. I admit I ate one too many of those cheddar biscuits, but why not right? The lobster was a-okay, I think a salmon would've been a better choice though like Jessie did. We had fun catching up and noticed there were some really cute guys working there so we may come back really soon.


Went and got my hair done with a blow out on Saturday for my date. I didn't realize just how fast my hair seems to be growing, but I like it. I was so nervous waiting for him to get to the restaurant while I was sitting in the booth. When he gets there, I felt less nervous and we talked some and got our food pretty fast.


We went to a sushi bistro and I gotta say it was superb! My favorite is usually the Philadelphia roll, but I did like the Yellowtail Sashimi he ordered. After dinner, he suggested we go get dessert somewhere so I told him we should check out this one place off Knox/Henderson called Mesero Miguel.


Oh em gee! We got the chocoflan entree and it seriously was bomb. Then I find out over a couple of bites that he has to get up early to go golfing. Boo! He had claimed that we were going to go smoke hookahs and this would be the best birthday ever, but of course he was full of it. To be honest though, the chemistry just wasn't there so I was kinda glad that we were calling it an early night.

I was ready to come home to Dexter and watch a couple more episodes. I am literally one episode away from the grand finale and I don't want to watch it yet!

Supposedly the guy I went on a date with said that we can hang out the next day (Sunday), but I never heard from him. I will be surprised if I hear from him today, but for him not to let me know either way if we're gonna hang out or not is quite the douche move.


Went to have brunch with Melanie at our favorite brunch place. I had been craving eggs since I haven't had much eggs since I started the new job. I used to eat them almost every day at my last job since we had a cafeteria downstairs. Mel helped me take some pics too that I will be posting here soon.

So that was my weekend in a blogshell. What were you up to this weekend?

Birthday Weekend


Happy Friday! Such a happy mood I woke up in and I'm relieved the weekend is here and not just any weekend but my birthday weekend! This year my birthday falls on a Monday so I'm definitely celebrating a bit early.

Tonight I'm going to dinner with Jessie and who knows where after. Then tomorrow I don't really have any set plans, but I may spend it with my family. I have been bad about not visiting since I started the new job. Later on Sat, going on my first date with the guy I met on Tinder. He wants to take me to a nice place especially being my birthday weekend. 

By the way, I'm totally blogging while I'm on the train on my phone. Rode the train all week and it's been really nice not driving to work. 

Sunday also no set plans, but I'm sure I'll get brunch with a friend and just relax around my apt.

What about y'all? Any Halloween plans? Hope everyone has a great weekend! I know I will.
