It’s hard to believe with the deep freeze we are experiencing now that just last weekend I was sipping wine at the Decatur Wine Festival. It was a sunny, crisp autumn day that was perfect for a wine tasting. Well, actually anytime is a perfect time for wine tasting, but I digress…..It’s an annual event that I try to attend every year. Last year I procrastinated in buying my ticket and it sold out!!! I vowed that would never happen again so I purchased my ticket well ahead of time to ensure I would be able to enjoy this highly popular festival.
It was warm enough to wear this great shirt dress I got at an Alternative Apparel warehouse sale for only $15!!! I paired it with some cognac-colored boots for comfortable walking and a pop of color cobalt blue bag.
It was packed with happy wine lovers. You knew people were starting to feel their wine when they began dancing to the music.
Some of the lines were a little long for the complimentary food items but it’s not as bad as long as you have wine while you wait. There was food from great restaurants like Souper Jenny, Parker’s on Ponce, Iberian Pig, and more!
Friends that drink wine together stay together
If you missed it this year, definitely mark your calendar for next year!
I was wearing….
Dress: Alternative Apparel. Boots: Aldo. Handbag: Hermes. Sunglasses: Tory Burch.
Like most people around the country, I headed to a Super Bowl party yesterday. I was completely apathetic about both teams and it’s purely chance that my Super Bowl outfit had the colors of the winning Seattle Seahawks. If the Steelers aren’t in the Super Bowl, I will typically just pull for the team with the least amount of rings so no one challenges the Steelers 6 championship rings record. I initially was going to wear black, coated skinny jeans with a blouse and statement necklace, but it felt a little too dressy for the occasion. So, I opted for a simple plaid shirt I found at Target and a pair of skinny jeans I haven’t been able to fit into for over a year! Thanks to the master cleanse and Dietbet, I’m back in my Tory Burch zipper jeans!
It was a surprisingly balmy day of temps close to 70 degrees. It was hard to believe Snowmegeddon of Atlanta was just five days prior.
It is still hard for me to wear flats with skinny jeans. Being a petite and curvy girl, I always feel the need to wear high heels to elongate my silhouette. These nude color (nude for my complexion) pumps from Aldo are pretty comfortable.
Of course, I still had to glam up the outfit with a chunky necklace and some fun bracelets. What did you wear for your Super Bowl party?
On your left, you have a beautiful Aldo silver pump accented with a capped-toe detail. It has a similar silhouette to the pricey Manolo Blahnik but the heel is not as high. On your right, you have a gorgeous, classic beauty that you could wear forever due to the lack of the trendy toe detail. I honestly would be happy with either one but the Aldo version will save you about $500! The Aldo Essi pump is on sale for $49.98 whereas the Manolo will run you $595. Which do you choose?
This past weekend I hosted my launch party for my Rodan and Fields business at my favorite nail salon, Sugarcoat. It’s a beautiful little salon nestled in the heart of the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta. They offer the latest colors and techniques in nail care and eyelash and eyebrow services are offered as well. I was so excited to host my first party and had a great turnout from friends and clients.
I wanted to look professional, but not stuffy so I decided to dust off an old suit of mine. It was a very cold day, so the wool kept me warm and the plaid pattern kept it playful. I love paying homage to retro style, especially the 70’s.
Rodan and Fields are the two doctors who created Proactiv. They now have a new line, simply called Rodan and Fields, that aims to treat the top four reasons people go to the dermatologist: 1) Acne 2) Sun damage and dark spots 3) Skin sensitivity (eczema, rosacea, etc) 4) Anti -aging. All clients have access to an on-call dermatology nurse for any questions or problems. People across the nation have seen amazing results and with a 60 day money-back guarantee, there’s nothing to lose. I started using the Unblemish regimen for my acne and I’ve been happy with the results thus far. Stay tuned for my skin diary that I will post at the end of my 60 days!
