Working from home has a lot of perks

Working with Bogart Cornett

With a title of travel writer and social media manager, I have the flexibility of working from home a few days a week. It’s quite lovely having the ability to stretch the creative capabilities of one’s mind in an atmosphere that is ever changing. Each week my office differs from my car, the couch, the office (I work with a wonderful group of social media managers) and sometimes a coworker’s couch. Yesterday, I had a meeting in Bricktown and while on my way home to finish a blog post, I decided I should swing by Marek’s and work from her couch. I mean, I was in her ‘hood and all.

From her couch, we were able to brainstorm social media strategies and catch a few episodes of Gilmore Girls.

The creativity of content creation and telling a brand’s story is something that makes my heart flutter like teenager at a middle school dance. Working with like-minded people who understand the importance of social media marketing, who thrive in a creative atmosphere, and have the ability to achieve results are exactly the people I want to surround myself with on a daily basis.

Of course, after a long morning of discussing social media strategy, Marek and I were off to lunch. Her lovely apartment is within walking distance of the Oklahoma City’s newest dining venue ─ Kitchen No. 324.

Holy bacon, Batman. Per my carnivore taste bud’s request, I ordered the Hand Carved BLT (McCabe’s small batch bacon, oven roasted tomatoes, lettuce, avocado mayonnaise, supermarket white.) To be fair there’s not a whole lot I can say about this bacon that won’t warrant the response, “that’s what she said.”

The atmosphere in Kitchen is urban, sophisticated and extremely trendy.  You can catch lunch with a colleague, brunch with the girls and coffee with your main squeeze. I mean, if squeezing is your thing.

The dining venues in Oklahoma City are becoming more spectacular by the season. Known for our unpredictable weather, friendly folks and cowboy kicks - I believe it's safe to assume we could add dining venues to that list.

Stop by Kitchen No. 324. Your stomach can thank me later.
