Adele Purest Possible All Natural Skincare Review

adele-2

 

Over the last month and a half, I was able to try out an all natural, olive oil based skincare line called Adele Purest Possible. When it comes to skincare, I’ve been more and more careful recently to only try out products that I think will be gentle with my skin and not cause any harm. So when I came across this brand, (and talked to the owners to find out more about it), I was convinced that they use only the most gentle ingredients. Their main ingredient is Continue reading

This was a three day event during which local and national companies had the opportunity to showcase important aspects of their brand to industry professionals and prospective students. The expo was set up with numerous Continue reading

Cochon 555 and Heritage BBQ Event Sunday, October 30th!

This Sunday, 5 amazing and famous chefs from the Atlanta food scene will be competing against each other to be crowned the bbq winner of Heritage BBQ 2016! Heritage BBQ is a culinary competition where each chef is given a 180 to 200 lb heritage breed pig to create 6 dishes for a crowd of pork loving enthusiasts. The chefs will also need to present a judges plate to be crowned the winner! The most exciting part for me is that these are all chefs whose restaurants I frequent! Chefs Ford Fry, Kevin Rathbun, Nick Melvin, Hector Santiago, and Terry Koval will be the ones competing for a cash prize. In addition, there will also be a Somm Smackdown featuring exciting wines from around the globe, tequila tastings, and more! Tickets are available HERE.

The event is taking place at The Stave Room, 199 Armour Drive NE, Atlanta GA 30324

I’ll be at the event, and I hope to see some of you there!

Its Maxi Season

I’ve mentioned before that wearing bright colors really isn’t my thing. However, in the last few years I have discovered a few brights that really work for my skin tone, and coral is one of them. I picked up this maxi skirt at a random store in Barcelona 2 years ago, and I’ve been in love with it ever since! I usually tend to pair this skirt with something white, black, or both. I know, I know, its just my comfort zone. I find that Continue reading

Atlanta Food: Canoe Brunch

Now that brunch is a thing here in Atlanta and across the U.S., its time to break down some of the best spots! I discovered Canoe years ago for dinner, and much more than the food, the atmosphere made me want to keep coming back. It’s hard to find such beautiful restaurants here in Atlanta, and Canoe really delivers. It’s on the banks of the Chattahoochee River, and they have patio seating as well as an outdoor bar with limited seating. One of my favorite things Continue reading

Fringe and Thigh High Boots

Okay, I’m guilty. I was hoping for a short winter revival because I was dying to pull out these beauties, err, boots since I only got them last month and it was so warm here in Atlanta! My wish was granted the last few days, and I eagerly put together an outfit around the boots to wear to a luncheon over the weekend. I’m all about effortless style that looks chic yet unfinished. The oversized knit top gives me just that, and Continue reading

Atlanta Food: Eclipse Di Luna

Eclipse Di Luna has a special place in my family’s heart. We discovered this restaurant soon after moving to Atlanta, 17 years ago. We always went there when we wanted a fun meal, and also always took our visitors there. While Atlanta now has so many incredible restaurants, this one fills the need for a well priced and tasty food menu. Its not fancy, but has that sort of rustic imperfection that most restaurants in Spain Continue reading

How to Wear a Vest

This year, I’ve been all about wearing vests. Something about it is so effortless and fun! This grey piece is one that I picked up at Nordstrom for a pretty good price, and I was itching to wear it all winter! I have found that layering vests over thin sweaters is the way to go for me, and doesn’t feel bulky. In this look, I chose an all white theme and a simple grey vest Continue reading
