Bottle Service Brunch May

•••
In 3 weeks, The Bottle Service Brunch at Yebo has generated a lot of momentum in Atlanta, with guests partaking in the food, the champagne and the good, musical Sunday vibes. Besides the infamous french toast, I think I have have this new fascination with cigars on the sunlit patio... I see the elements coming together for a great summer and ou[...]

STK Midtown New York Anniversary | 34th Street Style

•••
Back to New York City for the second time in the last week. This time I ventured out in the street more via buses, trains, and The Metro... Amidst the motion, before STK Midtown, I was able to capture a few images to convey the dynamic interaction and diversity of the people in the urban setting. As I settled in and the evening progressed, I joi[...]

Grand Marnier, New York City

•••
I was honored to recently be selected as a Grand Marnier Influencer for the Atlanta Market. As part of my training for the role, I was asked to come to New York City for 3-days, which included brand and sales education on Grand Marnier, dining experiences, and a cool stay at the Dream Hotel in Downtown Manhattan. It was enriching to not only be in the ce[...]

Moët Diner en Blanc Miami 2014

•••
After attending the inaugural Le Diner en Blanc Atlanta a few months ago, I was looking forward to seeing how the dinner would be at a new, more tropical location for Le Diner en Blanc Miami. The event played host to over 1000 guests, all in upscale white attire, complete with a live french band, dj and sparklers to light up the Miami Beach night sky. From p[...]

Black Autumn Night at STK

•••
The monochromatic, modern black, fit for almost any occasion. Mixed textures between leather and cotton for contrast. For the accessories, went with a men's bracelet stack on the wrist, vintage Boeing lenses, then I figured gold would to be the metal that we need to 'watch'. Always a festive time for a black autumn night at STK Atlanta on Monday, fille[...]

Moët STK DC Brunch

•••
Always great to join my STK DC family when I have the opportunity to go back home to The District (of Columbia). Had chance to catch up with friends, Patricia Woo and Lance Gross, and toast with Moët Rosé Magnums celebrating the Bison Brunch for Howard Homecoming. Probably the best brunch I've ever had, complete with: steak and eggs, lobster and g[...]

Nobu Malibu for Lunch

•••
After hearing people rave about the food and ambience, I told myself I would definitely dine Nobu on my next visit to Malibu. And after enjoying the food and experience first hand, it definitely surpassed my expectations. I felt like it was "lunch for a king" starting off with a selection of their sushi rolls, Yellowtail Sashimi, a few cocktails and then fin[...]

Hermes STK

•••
Sometimes things are best kept simple. For this night at STK Atlanta's Magnum Mondays, inspired by its Buckhead Atlanta opening, I wore a navy polo by Hermes paired with my favorite denim. To keep things interesting and pull the colors and texture together, I threw on a glen plaid and camo print pair of slippers by Del Toro. The celebration and libati[...]

Hermes Buckhead Opening

•••
I feel like we've all been anxiously waiting for the opening of the Buckhead Atlanta Designer Shops, so it was great to be there in general, but even better to be a part of the much anticipated, Hermes opening. The event began with a tour of the space, champagne toasts and then flowed into a custom created French Market (Hermēs Petit Marché), right on the th[...]
