Fresh Carbs and Post Updates

Thought I'd give you all an update on my situation with the Unscripted Hotel in Durham. I received the nicest email from the hotel manager. He apologised profusely, offered a refund of the stay, and a complimentary next stay. So generous! I look forward to trying to property again and updating my review. He even…

Ex Anniversaries and Steak Salad Nicoise

Last week would have been my twelfth wedding anniversary and I never really know what to do with that day any more. I look forward to the next great relationship so that I don’t feel the need to mark it any longer, but for now, we persist. The last few years I’ve spent it as…

Li’l (Fort) Wayne

Last week I embarked on a tour de Mid-West, visiting family in Fort Wayne, aka Li’l Wayne, aka Fort Wheezy, aka Fort Wheezy F. Baby, followed by a weekend in Columbus for the wedding of one of my nearest and dearest. Not having been back to either spot in nearly two years, I’d forgotten how…

Other Grand Snacks in Grand Cayman

It wasn’t all tasting menus and drinks on the beach. I managed to eat a bevy of other thangs as well, because, well…what else was I to do? Because I’m just a dainty lady, these 15 things were my top favorites: Burrata at Ave. Holy crap, this was hands down the best burrata of my…

Le Bon Marche, Tres Rive Gauche

If you’re like me and aren’t able to make a jaunt to Paris this summer, at least you can shop like you did! Today, Parisian staple, Le Bon Marche launched their online site, 24 Sevres. The website is just as gorgeous as you’d imagine, although it lacks the badass food hall. Oh well, some things…

Kimpton Seafire Digs

The theme of this blog is about to be romantic shit I planned that didn’t go as planned. 😉 Fresh off of my Zero George cooking class, I was headed into the dope beach vaca that the Gent and I had planned since January. What I didn’t plan on was taking it alone. <Eye roll…

Zero George Cooking Class

Because I’m romantic AF, I booked the for Gent and me, “the best new cooking class” in the world. He got real sick so I did what any classy broad would do and begged for a store credit.  One or my bff and lady loves, joined me do an absolutely fantastic evening of cheese balloons…

2017 Met Gala Review

I can’t resist a red carpet (or award show) which makes the Meta Gala one of the best nights of the year. Tonight is such a night! I thought I’d marry my forever love of red carpets with my current obsession of the new age features from IG story…the scrawling script of a five-year old. This…

Thinkin’ Dirty, Not Clean

This week I spent the whole week working from home. I tried to tagalong to another conference, thought about traveling to see friends, or test-driving a hotel solo. Mais non, nothing really panned out, so I stayed in and had myself a healthy week. I’ve implemented skin brushing and probiotics into my diet and begun…

It Goes Down in the DM

Well, after briefly trying Snap Chat last summer and finding multiple platforms completely unnecessary, I’m back in the “story business” on IG. I released my inaugural story yesterday – a truly stunning series of daily events. Jokes. Just the little bits of daily life that are lovely enough to share. PLUS, I decided to track…

It’s Friday, I’m in Love…

Soooo it’s been a little while since I’ve been loving on Fridays, but I’ve saved up a few bits and bobs of the last few weeks. So, without further ado, here are some of life’s little pleasures. 1. Adidas Pure Boost- these are literal foot clouds with high arch support. My have found my jogging…

It’s Friday, I’m in Love…

With…. National Macaron Day is Sunday! My namesake is so delicious. 2. Giant donut cakes!-“Giant donut cakes and mayhem,” the next frontier? 3. My Lover. – No, not that one. My French one! Meet yours here. In case you’re wondering, my type is: Have a bon weekend, mes cheries! And don’t forget to purchase some…
