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 […]

Paolo’s Gelato Italiano

Have you been to Paolo’s Gelato Italiano in Virginia-Highland? It has seriously become my guilty pleasure, plying me with as many cones, cannolis, coffees, candies, cookies, custards, and crepes as my heart (and waistline) can handle. If you ask me, a little taste of authentic Italy is well worth a few extra minutes on the treadmill! Paolo’s […]

Fitness at Exhale Spa

The sexy, sunkissed days of summer are coming, and if you plan to wear cute sundresses and skirts as much as I do, it’s time to get back in shape! For those who have stayed in shape all winter, I commend you and aspire to be like you when I grow up. However, if you’ve got to remove a […]

TAP

When life hands you lemons, make some lemonade, right? (Preferably with a little champagne in it, yum.) A few nights ago, my friend Robyn and I planned a double date with our fellas to check out the latest exhibit at the High Museum. I love their monthly Friday evening events, because they bring in live […]

Hiking Stone Mountain

Just as flowers buds are beginning to open in the springtime sun, so too am I slowly creeping back into fitness. I must have a grizzly bear ancestor, because during winter, I hibernate. I credit my roommate for getting me back into the swing of things, and also for introducing me to Stone Mountain, a place that […]

Chicago-Style Dogs at YumDiggity

May I start by saying that I don’t actually like hot dogs. I will not eat one from the supermarket; they just make my stomach turn. The one exception to my hot dog ban is YumDiggity, at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market. This bad boy is aptly named Digging in the Garden, and it groans under the weight […]
