The Consulate Atlanta Fashion

•••
The Consulate Atlanta is a new restaurant in Midtown founded to celebrate global flavor in a slick setting of mid-century art luxury. Mills Branding was commissioned to play host to its grand opening and produce an experience to showcase its assortment of international plates and craft cocktails. We even brought some of our friends from Moet & Chandon to[...]

Step into the Columbus Circle

•••
We all know that Columbus didn't discover America, but he seemed to somehow get all the credit. Talk about genius branding... that's a lot to claim credit to! Now that we've got that fact out of the way, lets talk about stepping into Columbus Circle, one of my favorite destinations in Manhattan, NYC. We've all heard the cliche, "welcome to the circle", but [...]

Moving Thru Manhattan Part 2

•••
It's hard to be a true Lifestyle Blogger and not take the time to capture the raw, metropolis that is New York City. The architecture, the history and the style permeates each step. While in town, I stepped into Meatpacking to absorb some of my first true urban street style shots. Visits included a stay at Nomo Soho, scenic city views f[...]

Fayetteville Friday at Frank's.

•••
I know you may not have to have a good reason to visit Fayetteville Georgia (like friends and family), but when that special occasion hits and you're hungry, you must visit Frank's. Frank's is a quaint family owned restaurant tucked in a historic mill established in 1823. It has a throwback, peaceful feel that puts you in mood to sit back and enjoy the fo[...]

The Brunch

•••
Now, for my Part 3 in The Beach, The Dinner and The Brunch series… “The Brunch.” In 2015 the Sunday Bottle Service Brunch became a phenomenon. I felt like when I transitioned from the STK Dinner Party people were looking to see what was next... In 2013 when we started, there were no Dinner Parties Atlanta that really did it right, then in less than a 2 ye[...]

The Beach

•••
The Beach, The Dinner, and The Brunch... This is the first of a 3-part holiday series to closeout 2015 and welcome in 2016. With family ties and legendary memories, Miami has always been special to me. Even though it's been a fairly mild winter in Atlanta, there's nothing like that 85 degree weather and sunlight.  The trip started with happy ho[...]

Dolce Italian Atlanta Saturday Brunch

•••
I actually used to get unisex or women's scarves because I preferred them for their style and size. Now that they're making them oversized for men, it opens up the options some... This scarf in particular by Asos, had a strong color combination, with mahogany, navy and gold that I felt would pair well with denim and a few of my favorite boots. Sometim[...]

GameDay Trip to Athens

•••
Despite a total monsoon and HUGE blowout loss suffered by the Bulldogs on this lovely Saturday, I had a great time on my first GameDay trip to Athens. This was mostly in part to my gracious friends at CraftBoxGirls and the Georgia Beef Board who selected me to be part of a Social Influencer group to attend the festivities. It all started with a fun bu[...]

Loungin' at Marcel Atlanta | Part 1

•••
I don't usually buy into the hype... I really don't. BUT, I'm open to trying a new place when people that have true taste recommend them... I had been hearing so much about Marcel Atlanta (starting with this post here) that I had to try it for myself. A European Steakhouse with a throwback Gentleman's feel. Red tufted Italian leather, a sc[...]

Moët Diner En Blanc Atlanta 2015

•••
After attending the inaugural Le Diner en Blanc in Miami and Atlanta last year, I was looking forward to seeing how the dinner would evolve and grow... What new touches would they add? How would they keep it interesting? Their answer was: location! I don't know how they were able to pull this off (probably with the blessing of the Mayor), but they man[...]

Stop in the Buckhead Shops

•••
Last week I took a stop in the Buckhead Shops... In previous posts I've shared recaps from the Bella Bag, Tod's and Hermes openings there, and since those, I've had time to explore more of the complex. Probably the best new retail concept the city has seen in a while, featuring some of the top luxury dining and fashion boutiques in Atlanta. My first s[...]

Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills

•••
Had to be there for wedding of my friend, Lance Gross, and his wife Rebecca. It was not only one of the most beautiful weddings I've attended, but also one of the best event productions I've seen at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. After the ceremony, we flowed to the courtyard where there was a custom bar with handcrafted Moscow Mule cocktails[...]
