Coca Cola Country

This mini-post is in protest to the fact that several servers lately have asked me if I wanted a Pepsi, instead of a Coke. The answer is always no. Pepsi isn’t Coke. And I live in Atlanta. Where the World of Coca Cola is. In fact, I’m going to visit that tourist attraction soon, just to punctuate […]

Sun & Surf in Cancun

For Christmas, I decided to gift myself a trip to the beach. My only requirements were gorgeous ocean water, warm weather, an all-inclusive deal, an absence of children, and a glorious king-sized bed. I found everything I needed and more at Secrets the Vine in Cancun, Mexico! You can’t imagine my excitement as my departure date […]

Happy New Year!

Here we are, the last day of the year! 2016 has been a tough year to swallow in a lot of ways. But above all, I am filled with gratitude to be alive and surrounded by the people I love. That said, 2016 needs to go on its merry way. In fact, my boyfriend and I […]

Street Art: Marietta St

Zipping along from downtown Atlanta to West Midtown the other day, I came across this gorgeous piece of street art. As is my wont, I stopped the car to take a closer look. You know how I love bright colors. I can’t even begin to guess what’s going on in this piece – seems to […]

Myrtle Beach ♥

A few weeks ago, my honey and I went to North Myrtle Beach for my birthday. (Shouts out to us August babies!) Keen for a little sand, surf, and sun, we piled ourselves into the car at the crack of dawn on Friday, bound for South Carolina. Myrtle Beach has been a special place for M since […]

Exploring The Biltmore

On our final day in Asheville, we decided to take a quick peek at a tiny little cottage called The Biltmore. Really, it’s so small, you might not even notice it. Sure, they like to call it an “estate” and toss around stats like “America’s largest private home” and “it sits on 8,000 acres”. But in reality, it’s […]

Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride

On Saturday, we were up before the sun. Getting dressed in a half-sleepy daze punctuated by jolts of excitement. We were going hot air ballooning! This has been a bucket list item of mine since the turn of the century (lol), and now it was happening. But I’d fantasized more about the amazing view than the reality […]

Weekend Getaway to Asheville, NC

I’ve got a confession: as much time as I’ve been city dwelling in Atlanta, this is my first time visiting Asheville. Considering that several of my friends absolutely love it there, I’ve been meaning to check it out for quite some time! So last weekend, my friend Natalie and I threw our bags in the car and hit […]

Sneaker Culture at the High Museum

If you’re a sneaker fanatic, the latest exhibit at the High Museum will feel like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. The Rise of Sneaker Culture showcases more than 150 sneakers, exploring the shoe’s evolution from its origins in the 1830s to its present day cultural significance. Though it opened in June, I hadn’t had a chance to see it until […]

Street Art: Moreland Ave

Atlanta has really stepped up its street art game over the past decade. The quantity, quality, and creativity of public art keeps increasing, much to my delight. Thanks to organizations like Living Walls, dozens and dozens of murals in varying styles, sizes, stories, and levels of intricacy now breathe new life into Atlanta’s neighborhoods, becoming an indelible part of their visual […]
