I am so excited that today is the first day of spring. It means we can shed off the dull gray of winter and start prepping for all sorts of fun warm weather activities, like picnics, kite flying, road trips and more. To help you get in the spring frame of mind, I’m sharing 5 unique Atlanta parks to have a spring picnic in. This list extends beyond the common (although well loved) Piedmont Park into unique places where you’ll still have a great view of the city but still feel like you’ve left the metro area.

When I went to decorate my apartment, my main goal was to have traditional furniture pieces with comfort in mind. That way when I want to adopt a new design trend, I can swap out a pillow or a throw blanket and quickly update the overall aesthetic. Lately, with the popularity of Mid-Century Modern furniture
If you live in Georgia, chances are you’ve seen a sticker on the back of some suburban with a “3” sun shape and an “A” on top of a jolly turquoise blue circle. It stands for 30A which is the strip of pristine beach that lines Florida’s Emerald Coast. The sticker is a cheeky nod

The first time I discovered Alys Beach (pronounced Alice) it was through a long and winding search for things to do on 30A through multiple Instagram hashtags that immediately infatuated me with the sun-bleached white buildings, the resort style architecture, and the uniqueness of the town when compared to its neighbors. Its picturesque beauty has
The weather we had this past weekend had me lost in a daze walking down the beltline, anxiously awaiting the return of full gingham outfits and Saturday mimosa brunches that drift into rose patio hopping. Since I feel it’s never too early to stock up on Summer essentials, I thought it would be fun to
For as long as I can remember, my family has always had an herb garden within easy reach of the kitchen. Throughout our various moves in suburbia, there was always an oversized pot containing the essentials: cilantro, basil, thyme, mint, and rosemary- which eventually had to be transplanted because it had grown into a full-sized
I wore this outfit to work the other day and it has to be one of the best things I’ve worn all year. A lot of you guys were asking where I got my yellow skirt from, which is unfortunately from Ann Taylor last season, but I’ve linked some similar options in this post.
When it comes to handbags, I’m pretty conservative. Most of my wardrobe consists of totes and tried and true convertible crossbodies, but this Spring I’mm thinking of branching out with one of these beauties that have me craving a warm weather escape while anxiously awaiting the return of blue skies and farmers market Saturday mornings.
Happy Mardi Gras, Y’all! I am not one of the fortunate creole folks who will be reveling with the closest of my thousand friends along Bourbon Street riding in parades or stuffing myself silly with beignets but I am sharing a little bit of the Mardi Gras magic with you today in the form of
