Dave and Busters Memphis

 
Last week Shaun and I had the opportunity to attend the preview for the Memphis location of Dave and Busters that is opening today. For Shaun it was fun to see the location in our home town but he was already familiar with the concept but for me it was first time to get the D&B experience.
 
 
If you're ot familiar with D&B here's the simplest way I can describe it -Chuck E Cheese for adults, minus the ball pit (which would be awesome, but I digress). For entertainment there are dozens of tv to watch sporting or other popular events - this would be a great Olympic games watching spot. There's an extensive menu and lots of fun cocktails on the bar menu and the food was pretty yummy. But the main attraction of any D&B is the arcade - which has any game you could think of.
 
 
In the bar area all the Memphis teams are printed across the wall and in the dining area is a large wall filled with Memphis iconic images - personally I love when businesses embrace the city they are in - plus it makes each location unique and fun.
 
 
We started our visit by hitting the buffet which gave us the opportunity to try a wide variety of menu items - my personal favorite were the chicken and steak strips but the mini burgers were pretty good too. 
 


We also got to sample some of the D&B signature cocktails - both the Strawberry Watermelon Margarita and the D&B TNTEA were really good and we're looking forward to getting them again on our next visit.
 
 
 
 
 
After socializing with friends for a bit we hit up the arcade. We played on a fun boat simulator, tossed beanbags and ping pong balls, did a little shooting and of course we had to hit up the classic
skee ball. Pretty much if you want to play it they have it.
 
 
Game points are loaded onto cards and each game has a card reader that takes points to play the game and issues tickets for any games that pay out tickets. In the back of the arcade is a shop to spend tickets, we decided to save ours for the next visit instead of leave with a little trinket.
 
 
 


 
Overall we were really impressed with our visit - it was crowded but not uncomfortably so (we never had to wait more than a few minutes to play a game) , there was security on site and plenty of staff to meet everyone's needs. I know there's some concern with the location in Memphis but if you get off at the Appling exit you can avoid the Wolfchase traffic and because it's not attached to the mall I don't think you'll have too many people just wandering around - there's no cover to get in but there's also nothing to do without spending money. Speaking of - there's several meals that come with $10 game cards, I'd say it took us about an hour to spend that at the arcade. Now, Shaun is a bit of a game so I could see him running up a big game tab here but I also could see us popping in for a fun date night and only playing in the arcade for an hour. We both agreed we're looking forward to returning and that this would be a fun place to meet up with friends or just go to do something a little different for date night.

Target Spring 2018 Try On

Spring is here! Well, maybe . . . here in Memphis we're back to think funky weather where it's in the 60s one day and freezing the next. But, spring fashion is hitting stores so close enough. While I usually start buying and wearing spring fashions for the year in March I decided this year with my theme of being more strategic with my wardrobe to go ahead and start trying things on so I can start thinking about what to ultimately buy.  Target has been killing it lately with fashion and they have several lines I love so knowing that I have a pretty healthy amount of skirts and I have jeans I love that I'd really want to be adding to my top collection I decided to make target my first try on stop. Unfortunately I discovered that the plus sizes of the Who What Wear brand are no longer carried in stores, at least not in my area anyway (I went to five Targets looking for it). Target does however have a line that is exclusive to plus sizes - Ava + Viv, and A New Day which come…

Society Plus Tutu Skirts

"Well, don't you look all princessey" my hubby said to me as he took photos of this look . . . which makes sense considering that's what it says on the label. . . .

See, I wasn't kidding. All Society+ items actually come with a fun affirmation label, which is just a fun brand touch but it's certainty true for this outfit.   I remember when tulle skirts first became popular a few years ago and I thought oh no way I could wear that, I would look huge and ridiculous; but then I tried one on and you know what - I felt FABULOUS! I actually think while tulle skirts look fabulous on anyone they are perfect for plus size women because they're not overwhelming. Plus hello, they're fun and pretty.




I've been wearing tulle for a couple of years now but it's only been recently that I've worn a Society+ Tutu Skirt and let me just say - what a difference! Each tutu skirt has 5 layers of tulle which gives a nice level of poof. The waist band is super co…

Valentine Outfit Inspo

OMG Valentine's Day is this week! That just kinda snuck up on me. Thank goodness my hubby made a reservation weeks ago, now I need to just figure out what to wear. When I originally shot some Valentine looks I picked two tops that I thought were appropriate and mixed them with a few different skirts to show how you can get different looks mixing and matching. First I wanted to mix red and pink but do so in a sophisticated manner without looking childish - I think by wearing something that just has accents of pink instead of a full on pink top it works, plus an off the shoulder look makes the outfit more sexy and mature instead of sweet. But, I also did want to show this top in a more romantic way and I think the soft pink and soft velvet material of the skirt gives that look.   Next I mixed red and pink again and although I was worried how two solid colored pieces would look I think the deep red really compliments the blush of the pink well, plus I love the mixing of luxe fabri…

Sephora Play January 2018

This year I've cut back on subscription boxes a lot - right now it's just Mommy Lhey Little Bits (planner supplies) and Sephora Play (beauty). Don't get me wrong, I love getting subscription boxes but if I'm being perfectly honest I also love picking my own things to buy and I'm trying to be even smarter with my spending this year. That said, I like Sephora Play because for $10 a month it keeps me connected with the latest beauty products and lets me try them without spending a fortune. This month I was super excited by the products inside this months box.

Glam Glow Cleanser $32
I really like the gla glow masks so I was really excited to try this cleanser and it did not disappoint. Most cleansers cannot get off my eye makeup and I have to use a remover but this one cleaned my entire face. Its not drying and because it has a similar consistency although lighter than the mask I feel like it does a great job of giving a deep clear rather than just clean makeup from …
