Foodstagrammable Austin Spots

But what’s a foodstagram, you ask?

Are you the friend in your group who cannot eat without getting a photo of each and every delectable morsel of food? Do you often order items or try out restaurants simply because their food aesthetic is sexier than your own? Wait don’t eat that! Gimme some light! Can we try and get a more alluring angle on that apple pie?
We get it, we’re like you too.  We love eating food, but we’re also huge advocates for the age old saying, take a picture, it’ll last longer.   
In the spirit of this maxim, we’ve comprised a list of 5 of the most instagrammable spots to dine in Austin.  And as every good foodstagramer knows, it’s important to try and hit every corner of the globe (even if only from the four corners of your own city):



Un goûter de la vie en rose est ici! This chic new French restaurant downtown is sprawling.  Spanning almost the entire block, Le Politique is a restaurant, bar and patisserie with delicacies out the wazoo!  They’ve got cheese boards, wine straight out of the south of France and fruits de mer on display at the bar. And then for dessert, their pastry shelf is stocked full of croissants, tarts, cakes and macaroons that will have you drooling.  Throw a latte or cappuccino into the mix and your pre indulgent pics will have your followers asking themselves, “how did I miss her moving to France?”



This place is seriously so cool.  Located downtown, the Easy Tiger Beer Garden and Bakery is a place as saucy as its name.  After entering through the bakery, you can either head downstairs into the beer cave or outside to their deck patio complete with a gorgeous ivy coated wall, and ping pong tables!   Either is the perfect backdrop for snapping the goods you’ll get at Easy Tiger. They’ve got thirteen different types of bread, pastries, Easy Boards that each come with a different assortment of meats and cheeses, and beer flights or pints to go with ‘em!  It’s a guaranteed picturesque taste of Germany on our very own 6th street… so prosit!



Pizza. Enough said, am I right? Bufalina is the perfect destination for a date night set in Italy by way of east Cesar Chavez. Their pizzas are incredible, simple yet unique.  Last time I was there I got a roasted mushroom pizza topped with lemon, ricotta, fontina and garlic chives. And yes, you guessed it, it looks as good as it sounds.



There will be ample amounts of time to gram whilst waiting in the Franklin’s line, however, once you finally get your hands on the meats, you’ll have to fight that urge to dig right in. Do it for the gram! People travel from far and wide to try this world famous BBQ, and let me be the millionth patron to confirm to all the first timers out there that it is indeed worth it.



So you’re feeling green, healthy, looking for a super foodie meal to jumpstart that cleans you’ve been on the brink of starting for a couple of days (weeks) now… but, being the social x functional foodie that you are, you still want something that doesn’t look as bad as a kale smoothie sounds.  Blenders and Bowls is the place for you. Their bowls and smoothies are packed with acai antioxidant magic, fruits, veggies and all those other good for your heart, brain and body foods we all should strive to eat more of. But not only are these bowls good for the temple that is your body, they’re also ready made for your fitstagram feed.  Peep their instagram for proof!

Is your mouth watering yet?  I know mine is… all over my keyboard as I write this and think about which one I want for dinner tonight.  It’s tough decisions like these that make us winners, am I right? Now, go forth and make all your friends jealous of the food you’re eating and the good life you’re living.  And for even more restaurant recs and palatable pics, follow our friend Rachel Holtin on Instagram @austinfoodstagram!

Happy Weekend and Happy Eating! 


EVENTS | SXSW Essentials

Seriously, how great would it be if our essentials were really just a backpack, sunglasses, hat and, of course, couple bottles of vodka?

The hat sunglasses and bag were used, but unfortunately, with this being our busiest time of year there were not many drinks to be had by the Dos Mundos Team. Not that we are complaining though — we thrive when we are this productive.

This being some of our team’s 10th year of attending, we are always amazed at how energy of SXSW pulses through the city of Austin. The excitement is infectious and at times it is hard to remember to slow down and enjoy. However, the one thing we’ve learned about attending this festival is that once you get there, plan to stay there all day. It is almost impossible to get in and out of the city, not to mention the parking situation — so having a well-planned bag is a must.

Here’s a peek at the basics in our SXSW survival list:

  • Mac Laptop  | we’ve got the new one, which is great for editing videos and photos on the spot)
  • Sony A7ii | In our opinion the best compact camera for capturing quality video + stills
  • 24-70 lens | allows for a decent distance range without being too bulky or too limiting
  • Lacie Hard Drive | for storing all that beautiful footage 😉
  • Sunglasses | we ALWAYS lose ours so these are freebies from the Mashable House
  • Janessa Leone Hat
  • Backpack ( from our local favorite Dylan Wylde)
  • Comfortable pair of Nike Airmax tennis shoes or a fine pair of boots depending on whether it is music or interactive ( we go a little more casual + sporty for the music portion)
  • Thunderbird + BoBo’s Oat Bars | Both gluten-free, no artificial sweeteners and they are gluten free!
CREATIVE LIVING | Love + The Creative Process
Today we wanted to do something a little different and share something more personal,

Let me start off by introducing myself – Hi, I’m Kana ( the blonde one), co-founder of @dosmundoscreative and the primary Instagram poster for this account and this is why I no longer hate this mushy commercial holiday.

Honestly, Valentine’s Day used to be one of those days I absolutely dreaded. Full of pressure and terrible memories. In fact, I used to organize a big anti-party every February 14th year jam-packed with the appropriately early 2000’s emo vibes.

The man in this photo is my fiancée Andrew, the guy that changed my perception on love. He is the main source of my sanity and the reason why I have the confidence to pursue my passions. Supporting me, even when I am convinced that I am the worst, garbage, human alive ( it’s a creative personality thing, right?). The cheesy truth is, he is kind and noble and inspires me to be a better person. He’s awesome.

Like most relationships that start out in your early twenties, ours didn’t start out great. February 14 is the 8 year anniversary of our break-up. Which of course was aweful, but I’m glad it happened because it gave us both the time we needed to find our sense of selves that our relationship would not function without.

I was never the cute girl growing up. In fact, I was usually the weird girl. Overweight, with terrible acne and clear braces ( that mostly looked yellow). I was also ALWAYS the new kid. By 9th grade, I had been to 10 schools, and 0 social skills. I watched a lot of TV and movies but had no idea what people talked about aside from tasks. Whenever I did try to socialize, I ended up saying something bizarre so I was usually made fun of.

Needless to say, by the time I finally started dating at 21 years old  not being myself seemed like the better idea. So like a lot of young girls, I took on the interests of my boyfriend and mimicked what I saw other “cooler”girls do. I had become an impression of what I thought a person needed to be accepted and feel loved.

This pattern persisted in varying degrees through that fateful V-day break-up.

When we broke up I cried so hard. Until finally, I began to laugh at myself. I realized that my love life had become a bad Lifetime movie, with the most cliche break-up scene imaginable. So, I decided to focus on figuring out what I really liked and cared about. Which was when I finally learned to love myself in all of my weirdness and I was able to embrace my creativity in a more confident form.

The thing was…Andrew and I still had the same friend group, so we saw each other most days. Which. Was. Terrible. At least at first.

About 10 months later, we had become closer than ever and started dating again, this time for keeps. We had both grown a lot over that course of time. The crazy thing was, he LOVED  my personality. Not the one I had fabricated from years of TV watching and boyfriend imitating — just the creative, strange person that I had always been. Turns out he was a nerdy weirdo too (but obviously so dreamy ) so we were finally able to drop the cool kid act and find a new kind of happiness.

8 years later, 4 job changes between us, 1 new business venture and a very scary bout with cancer and we are still together and getting married in a few months. We still want to kill each other 70% of the time, but the supportive genuine love that we share is what keeps life exciting even when it gets tough. So what the hell, Happy Valentine’s Day!

Thanks to @leahmusephotography for capturing us in such a beautiful way!

EVENTS | Live from the Superbowl 2017

You like football ? How about parties? NFL players and celebrities ? What about ALL of those things topped with best darn vodka in Texas?

Well this year, you can get an inside look at the entire event by following along with us and @mvpvodka on instagram! Our clients and friends from MVP Vodka sponsored a slew of events around the Super Bowl in Houston and we are excited to be tagging along to capture what it is like to party like an NFL player during this culmination of the football season.

TRAVEL | Guatemala
In February Chris was on the road, building a home in Rabinal, Guatemala. The team of 20 volunteers traveled to a small town among the mountains and volcanoes near Salama. Working on the foundation on the house involved a good deal of dirt transportation and rebar, allowing us to really earn our happy hour cerveza.
CALENDAR | February
Loving the design these tow put together for February, though in Austin we ended up having a ton of 80 degree days!

It’s great to see that there is a huge trend in feminist costumes this year, but everyone is going to be “Sexy Ruth Bader Ginsburg” this year, so how about trying something different?  When it comes to bringing tough feminist issues up in a light and playful way through comedy Amy Schumer is the absolute best. So to celebrate to celebrate her humor here’s a couple last-minute DIY versions of the many costumes from her show Inside Amy Schumer.
