SHOP SMALL HOLIDAY GUIDE

Not today, Amazon. NOT. TO. DAY. It’s time to show some love to some of my favorite small businesses, including fashion, home, local, and Black-owned. Let’s get shopping!

DINNER LAB Birmingham

So, if you HAD to pick one thing BIRMINGHAM is known for, what would you say?  Anyone?  Bueller?  Maybe it’s being a pregnant foodie, but I would have to say FOOD!  Having traveled all over the country, I have to say that BIRMINGHAM has a pretty legit food scene.  It can compete with most big cities and truly boasts a uniqueness that nowhere else can emulate.  From Frank Stitt to Chris Hastings, Birmingham is fortunate to be the home of so many legendary chefs.  SO, what is the latest FOODIE trend to hit Birmingham?  DINNER LAB. What exactly is DINNER LAB?  Their tagline is EXPLORE…

FREE SKINCARE PRODUCTS?

Good afternoon dolls!!!  I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend!  Who is interested in free skincare products??  UM, I AM!!  I am SUPER excited about the MD Wellness & Aesthetics Re-Branding Party coming up on TUESDAY, MAY 19th.  If you are around, you won’t want to miss it!  This will be a fun, girls night out event with complimentary wine, beer, and hors d’oeuvres.  I will be there live-blogging, along with THE Tracy James from Chic Made Simple, so please join us.

HALLER.

How amazing does that dish look?  Those are Buckwheat Blinis with Gravlax, Creme Fraiche, Caviar and Dill.  Are you hungry yet?   Several weeks ago, the hubs and I hosted a vertical wine dinner at our house that focused on Chateau Beaucastel wines from the Southern Rhone region.  We were so happy to host this wonderful event that supported local Alabama charities and The Tum Tum Tree Foundation.  The food+the company+the wine…the event was spectacular! However, the food stole the show.  Chef Haller Magee truly brought down the house with his seemingly effortless, yet eclectic dishes.  He literally took over our kitchen creating a pop…

Simple.

How beautiful can simplicity be?  My style is usually the opposite of simple.  However, Fall is different.  Simple can be so refreshing and stunning at the same time.  It’s comfortable, yet unique.  The edginess and the broad range of grayscale color ways…I can’t get enough.  Sometimes less is more, and you can truly define fashion by how you style something so simple.  When showcasing beautiful images of this AMAZING backdrop, simplicity is key.  Can you guess where I am?  Home sweet home.

LOCAL IS BETTER: PEPPER PLACE.

For those of you who know me, you know how much I LOVE the city I live in: Birmingham, AL. Over the last 8 years, I have not only been lucky to call “The Ham” home, but I have also witnessed it evolve into one of THE coolest cities in the Southeast. Known for it’s fabulous culinary scene and local culture, Birmingham is an awesome place for young adults to live and raise a family. One of my absolute FAV places is the Pepper Place Farmer’s market. It is a crucial part of our weekly Saturday tradition: Iron Tribe, Pepper Place, dog walk…
