Saints tee (c/o Nike) | Skirt (The Limited) | Guess booties (Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse c/o Concord Mills) Necklace, Bracelet, Clutch (c/o Versona Accessories)   I was recently introduced to a shop called Versona Accessories when they contacted me to tell me about the Grand Opening of a new location in Charlotte.  Versona Accessories itself is not new nor new to the Charlotte area, but for some reason it had escaped my attention.

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 ...
