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 [...]

Tanqueray Ten Brunch

•••
At this Sunday Brunch we toasted with Tanqueray Ten, a new premium Gin by Tanqueray. Distilled with citrus for a bold, refreshing finish for the summer, it blended perfectly with some of the hand-crafted cocktails made with fresh-pressed juices - which included my favorite: The Watermelon Cooler... 1 part Tanqueray, 1 part watermelon puree over ice, garnishe[...]

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[...]

Moving Thru Manhattan Part 1

•••
Who really goes to NYC for meetings?! Seriously... Like do we really go for meetings, or are meetings just our excuse to go? I think it's just an excuse (for me)! My days started at Gansevoort Park Avenue NYC and off to meetings for Grand Marnier and Moet Hennessey. Then, flowed to lunch at Cafeteria, the home of the best chicken and waffles I've had on t[...]

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[...]

Miami White.

•••
"I might wear white for a week straight!" This is my Miami vibe about 92% of the time. The other 8% is probably off-white (lol). When I touched down in Miami last week it was refreshing to get out of the cold and rain of Atlanta. The weather's been so weird. Everyone I know (myself included) has seemed to have been battling some sort of winter cold or[...]

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[...]

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[...]

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[...]

Men of Style

•••
The Atlantan Magazine hosted their annual Men of Style Issue event at John Smoltz' private estate last Thursday, complete with lite bites, Scotch by Dewars, cigars and the amazing scenery of Milton, Georgia to create a full Gentlemen's Lifestyle Experience. It was a gorgeous property, with breathtaking views of green all around and we definitely l[...]

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[...]
