Bikinis, Bikinis, Everywhere

I’m permanently changing my dress code. Starting today, I’m wearing nothing but bikinis. If I can’t wear a bikini to the event, I ain’t going. My job will just have to get used to it. 😀 Just kidding! Though I do feel like a snack here in Aruba. Which is ironic given the fact that […]

Lemonade

There’s a certain peace that melts over you when you truly relax. When you jettison your watch and your alarms and your schedule, when you have no to-do list looming large, no meetings. Simply nowhere you’ve got to be. You begin to tap into a deep well of contentment that you didn’t even know you […]

Welcome to Aruba

Sun. Sand. Surf. Ocean breeze. Endless buffets. Delicious cocktails. And my best friend. My honey and I are in Oranjestad, Aruba, and this getaway is right on time! From the minute we booked the trip a couple months ago, I’ve had a timer countdown set on my phone. Anytime work got a little too stressful, […]

High Museum & Little Trouble

A few weeks ago, my friend Natalie invited me to Art After Dark, hosted by the High Museum’s Young Professionals. The promise of cocktails, live music, fellow art-lovers, and four floors of exhibits to explore in one of my favorite Atlanta attractions made me say “yes” immediately. We bustled in from the brisk night air and […]

Shaky Beats 2017

Shaky Beats was amazing! Kicking off on Friday May 5th (Cinco de Mayo!), the music festival exploded into a weekend of deep bass, sick beats, and more dancing than I’ve done in years! After a soggy start on Friday, the weather was absolutely perfect on Saturday and Sunday, prompting everyone to come out and soak […]

Street Art: East Atlanta

On my way to Le Petit Marche the other day, I passed this house in East Atlanta, and fell in love with the street art. The fact that the house is painted my favorite color is a cherry on top. 🙂 Turns out this place is a dance studio called Metropolitan Studios, so the two-story mural […]

King of Pops Yoga

The first time I ever tried an outdoor yoga class was about five years ago, on the big hill in Piedmont Park, and it is still one of the best classes I’ve ever had. Something about doing yoga outside really spoke to me. The balmy breeze through the trees, the evening sun peeking through the […]

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

Back in October, M and I explored the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando! I realize that I’m publishing this now, like 700 years after the fact, but hey, that’s what #throwbackthursday is for, am I right? (OK, so usually #tbt is reserved for social media, but I’ll go ahead and slide a post […]

Dining at NEXT

A couple of nights ago, M and I popped into NEXT for a bite to eat. In case you aren’t familiar, NEXT is one of the restaurants in the newly renovated Crowne Plaza Atlanta – Midtown hotel! Located on the cusp of downtown and midtown, the hotel is within ten minutes of all the good stuff: The […]

Thumbs Up Diner

Thumbs Up Diner initially caught my attention with the sign on the side of its building. Street art and pancakes? Two of my favorite things! Not to mention the bold claim of being Atlanta’s #1 Breakfast Destination. We decided that this would require some elastic-pants’d investigation… This cozy location in Old Fourth Ward is pretty unassuming, easy […]
