We had the good fortune of connecting with Madison David and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Madison, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
My #1 as a content creator is gravitating towards the things that make me feel inclined to create and Dallas makes it easy! Whether its a cozy corner tucked into my favorite coffee shop or a park that’s blooming with spring color, getting out into the eternal buzz of Dallas or traveling somewhere new keeps me fueled to create. Planning out content is also a top priority! As a creator, I used to scramble to get posts together and felt like my feeds were falling flat in the process. Now I plan out and time block brainstorming, creating and posting content so my ship runs smoothly and I can more effectively utilize my time.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I live and breathe creating content on social media, specifically travel + lifestyle! I had a lot of blogger + travel social media accounts I looked up to and eventually inspired me to get started. My biggest struggle was figuring out my “why” and narrowing that down to what content I would be creating. My biggest smile comes from exploring, traveling and sharing my finds with others to live a colorful life, which led me to lifestyle + travel. Thankfully I have an incredible partner that loves to come on these ventures and inspired me to start a new series we are NOW ANNOUNCING: Dallas Date Guide! In our relationship, we place a big emphasis on prioritizing dates and we realized we wanted to inspire other couples to do the same! Dallas Date Guide will be a weekly series via Instagram Reels and TikTok where we will share our dates in a fun + visually dynamic way! The goal behind the series is 52 dates per year!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Oh gosh where wouldn’t we go?! For a long weekend or weeklong excursion, I would check them in to one of my favorite hotels – preferably The Adolphus which comes with some amenities of its own to enjoy. We’d probably partake in their lavish afternoon tea courtesy of The French Room followed by some time at the rooftop pool accompanied by pool snacks + cocktails! In Dallas a coffee shop is a must so that would be next on the itinerary and then maybe a picnic at one of our gorg local parks! At some point I’d treat to a full day of shopping around Bishop Arts or Highland Park Village and some pampering like some treatments at Vivian’s Day Spa or pedis at Verbena Parlor. And I can’t leave out one of my favorite spots for a laid back yet upscale meal, Hudson House, which has the best oysters, burgers and Bellinis! For a casual night? Pizza from Greenville Ave Pizza Co. at the hotel!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My mom is the Lorelai to my Rory that always supported me in my creative endeavors and my confidant who always got excited at my ideas! In 2018 my partner + other half, Hudson, came into my life and has been a shoulder to lean on, brainstorm buddy to bounce ideas off of and a huge part in creating my personal brand as a travel + lifestyle blogger/content creator!
