What was the inspiration behind Wendy Eats?
A love of Memphis, a love of good food, and the desire for others, especially Memphians, to see the best of our city!

For people to be excited about the city’s locally owned restaurants!
In your eyes, how much are food and fashion intertwined?
Food and fashion are extremely close. If I were good with analogies this would be where I’d say something extremely clever and witty that would make you go ahhh yes food and fashion. But since I’m not, I’ll just say food and fashion are both about way more than simply function. They’re about love, expression, and creativity. Your preference in either can tell you a lot about yourself.
When you aren’t working on your blog, what do you do for fun?
Work on my blog! LOL Run, Read, or Travel.
Who are some of your favorite professional foodies?
I love Rachael Ray, Giada de Laurentiis, and Alejandra Ramos.
Ohhh there are so many. I definitely have the snack gene so in order to stop myself I really don’t keep snacks at home. The only thing I allow myself to keep at home is grapes. But my favorite snack is chips and dip.
Top 3 favorite restaurants in Memphis:
I have so many favorites depending on what I’m in the mood for so there’s no way to name just 3. (read her blog to get ideas!)
Fun dinner date idea:
A fun dinner date is any date that includes a little thought, effort, and element of surprise. A private dinner watching the sunset atop a rooftop of one of the buildings downtown or underneath the stars while in the park. Either one would definitely be my idea of fun!
Fashion on Film: Which movies inspire you?
Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada.
How would you describe your personal style?
Chic and fun
Favorite places to shop (3)?
BCBG, Nordstrom, and Target!
What’s in your beauty bag?
I’ve started experimenting with lipstick so a variety of MAC colors, studio fix, and eye liner.
