Post image for Bloggers Feast – Tupelo Honey Cafe in Charlotte

My blogger friend, Connie, invited me and a few other fellow blogger friends to have dinner at Tupelo Honey Cafe last Friday evening.  It was a chance for us to get together, chat about life and the happenings with our blogs, and of course, to eat some good food.  Connie had previously eaten there and had raved about Tupelo Honey Cafe so much so that Tupelo Honey Cafe invited us to come back to have dinner on them for the purpose of reviewing the restaurant.     We arrived and Connie gave each of us gifts – a mug with our first initial and a fun clutch for a night on Read More ...

Chi Tank (c/o Athleta) :: La Viva Capri City Pant (c/o Athleta) :: Heels (ShoeDazzle) :: Bag (Marshalls)  Necklace (Target) :: Bracelets (The Limited) :: Earrings (Target)   What's more enjoyable on a hot spring or summer day than taking a dip in the pool?  For most of my life, going to the pool was not part of my regular summer routine, because I could not swim.  I didn't avoid the pool, but I was never the first to suggest it as a summer activity. My sister took swim lessons when we were younger, but I was never interested in taking lessons.  About 6 or 7 years ago I decided Read More ...

Here is this week's recap of BET's The Game Episode 706: Chardonnay and Brittany are throwing Jason's stuff out on the lawn.  Brittany tells him that his soon-to-be-second-ex-wife doesn't want to talk to him because he spent the night with her mother.  Brittany tells him that Kelly often has men over, so he might want to get tested.  They close and lock the door.  Jason tries to unlock it, but they have changed the locks. Malik is at the restaurant and asks if Tee-Tee is going to help bus tables.  Tee-Tee says he's consumed with the Cluck Truck issues.  Tasha shows up and says the guys were a no show.  Malik Read More ...

Congratulations to former University of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and his former Miss Alabama USA girlfriend, now fiancée, Katherine Webb on their engagement!  According to Katherine's tweet, AJ designed the ring himself.       If you don't know the story of Katherine and AJ, let me give you a brief rundown.  AJ played football for the University of Alabama.  Katherine graduated from Auburn University.  Alabama and Auburn are long-time rivals (one of the best rivalries in sports history).  Katherine gained notoriety during the 2013 BCS National Championship Game in which the cameras panned to Katherine and announcer Brent Musburger gushed about how beautiful she is.  Katherine's Twitter followers jumped from Read More ...

The Look For Less – Ivory Handbag

Thumbnail image for The Look For Less – Ivory Handbag

I was shooting with my photographer, Lindsay, recently and she said, "You have the best handbags." That compliment made me realize how handbags have become my thing.  I think I go through phases with clothes and accessories.  At one point I was all about cardigans. Don't get me wrong, I still love cardigans.  They are great for the spring and summer when you don't need a jacket or coat, but want something to cover your arms (they are also great for cold offices).  Then I was all about belts.  Now, it's handbags and I really want an ivory handbag because it's perfect to carry all year long (don't believe the "you Read More ...

The Look For Less – Multi-Color Print Dress

I don't know about where you live, but the weather here in Charlotte has been a tease.  One day it's a warm 70 degrees and the next it's a bitterly cold 32 degrees.  The warm days have my mind stuck on spring temperatures and thus, spring fashion.  Recently, I came across a beautiful multi-color print dress on a blog and now I'm on the hunt for some multi-color dresses and skirts.  The dress on the blog is quite pricey; way more than I'm willing to spend, so I challenged myself to find the look for less (Side note: When I was studying for the bar exam, The Look For Less was a Read More ...
