There is so much great shopping in Midtown but Black Scintilla has to be my favorite place. They have an assortment of laugh out loud funny gifts and their fun fashions get me every time. The owner, Rachael, is a businesswoman I greatly admire and her heart and passion for small business make shopping with her a delight.

My favorite place to grab a bite is Tamashii Ramen. The cozy atmosphere and great service is only topped by the amazing ramen. Spicy pork with extra menma (marinated bamboo shoots) is my go to order and they always have a great cocktail list to choose from.
P L A Y My favorite place to play has got to be Brushed OKC. They are the best salon and I love to go there for some self care and to relax in a chill environment. Whether I'm getting a haircut, hair color, lash extensions or getting my makeup done for a special occasion, I always leave feeling refreshed and taken care of.
