Today we’d like to introduce you to Shanelle Fisher.
Shanelle, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
As a wife, a mother of two young children, and a full time attorney, I was burnt out from my everyday tasks, and was craving a way to reconnect with other women, as well as find something that brought me joy, outside of my family. So, in 2016, I started a brunch club with some of my friends and I chronicled my experiences on my social media. After a while, other friends started reaching out to me for restaurant recommendations. I eventually decided to start a blog to document my foodie adventures. My blog, Mochas and Mimosas, has become more than a place to find restaurant recommendations. While you will find restaurant reviews (tons of brunch reviews), there are also ideas for entertaining at home and ways to connect with friends and family through food. My intent is for it to be a place where women can find solace in the fact that we are all striving for balance and self-care is necessary, whether you are a stay at home mom, a working mom, or even a single lady. I hope when people visit Mochas and Mimosas they are encouraged and inspired to try a new restaurant, throw a gathering with their loved ones, and enjoy life just a little bit more.
Has it been a smooth road?
When I first started, I was nervous about the technical aspects of blogging, but I was fortunate to find a good web designer. My husband has a background in computer engineering (not that one is required by any means to start a blog), and he helped me with setting up my page. Through trial and error I’ve learned a great deal about photography and photo editing.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
Mochas and Mimosas is a food and life style blog that focuses on restaurant reviews and food events in the DFW metroplex. As the name suggests, brunch is my favorite meal of the day, so that is my specialty. It also includes travel posts, which mostly highlights places to eat in that particular destination. As a mom, I share ways to entertain with little ones and hosting tips for throwing an easy, fabulous event, that doesn’t break the bank. I’m all about ballin on a budget!
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I’ve lived in Dallas for almost 10 years and I’ve visited many other cities in the country. Hands down, Dallas is one of the best cities for foodies. We have some pretty fabulous restaurants, headed by top chefs. Not to mention, nowhere else does brunch like Dallas. Brunch is an event in Dallas. Folks dress up and take it as seriously as dinner is taken in other cities. Mimosa specials and bloody Mary bars have become as popular as happy hour. Despite all of the restaurants that I have reviewed, I still have an ever growing list of brunch spots that I have yet to visit. Dallas is also a growing city and the restaurant market here is competitive. I couldn’t think of a better place to be a food blogger since there are constantly new places to discover.
