    It's time for the second post in my series of "Why and what I love about Charlotte" for the #DesignCharlotte campaign. The Marriott Charlotte City Center Hotel is getting a big facelift and as part of this transformation, they are asking guests and Charlotte residents to show off our amazing city and what we love [...]

  • First Taste (and Sip!): Corkbuzz Charlotte

    { 7 comments }

    New York City wine bar Corkbuzz recently opened its first location outside of New York right here in Charlotte in the SouthPark neighborhood. It's located in the same development as Whole Foods and adjacent to SouthPark Mall. I typically steer clear of new restaurants for the first couple of months they are open to avoid [...]

  • Monday in the Life + Scenes from the Weekend

    { 3 comments }

    Monday is always a crazy but fun start to the week for me. I train clients at 5:30 and 6:30 a.m. and then head to the studio to teach at 8:15 a.m. and usually take the class after to get my practice out of the way while I'm already sweaty. I shower and head back [...]

  • Favorite Whole Foods Snacks + Weekend Recap

    Happy Monday! A few scenes from the weekend to share... I did a little Whole Foods trip and loved opening one of my bags to find they'd bagged all the best stuff together. - Sweet Potato Pop Chips (these are seriously addictive...I'm sorry for telling you about them! :) ) - Glutino Sea Salt Crackers [...]

  • Fig, Cherry & Berry Smoothie + Recent (Lots of Out To) Eats

    { 15 comments }

    This is the first week that I've truly felt "in the swing of things" in over a month. Between traveling in February and the weird snow/ice days we had, my schedule has been all over the place. This week it's been 100% business as usual and it's one of those magical weeks where none of [...]

  • Friday I’m In Love

    { 14 comments }

    Happy Friday and happy Halloween! Back in my advertising days I used to always have "The Cure Fridays" where I listened to The Cure Radio on Pandora as I was wrapping up my work for the week. They're one of my all-time favorite bands. So in the spirit of that, I present you with a [...]

  • Rained Out + Recent Eats

    { 23 comments }

    Last night was a little bit of a let down. I had plans to see Kings of Leon with some friends but the weather was not cooperating. Our seats were on the lawn and there was an 80% chance of storms and a hazardous weather warning. We decided to chance it anyway and drove to [...]

  • CLT Eats: Fahrenheit & littleSpoon

    { 19 comments }

    It's only Wednesday but I've already hit up two new Charlotte restaurants this week. Before I share my experiences with these restaurants let me give you my take on the Charlotte restaurant scene as a whole...I do not love it. We have a ton of restaurants in Charlotte and while I feel grateful for the [...]

    Hi there! Sorry I've been MIA for a couple of days but I was soaking up momma + bday time. Here's a look at my birthday in photos. It was a great day and I felt so lucky to have my mom here with me for it! It started bright and early at Metro where I coached [...]

  • Weekend: Growth, Love & Transformation

    { 26 comments }

    My weekend was full of celebration including the final weekend of yoga teacher training and graduation, a friend's baby shower and the grand opening of Metro Fitness 51. My weekend was also full of reflection about how much growth, change and transformation is constantly happening around us (and within us). I stayed in on Friday [...]

    Good morning. I so appreciate all of your insightful and kind comments on yesterday's post. I guess what I want to say in return is that I have been through an incredible amount of change in my professional and personal life over the past two years. Literally everything has changed. I have experienced a broad [...]

  • Desperation and Tacos

    { 10 comments }

    This has been the week of desperation meals after a tragic event on Sunday night. I somehow managed not to shut the fridge all the way and it stayed slightly open for about 10 hours. The next morning all of the food was warm and I had to do a total toss of most of [...]

    WEEKEND! :D Mine has been fabulous so far  - pedicure, dinner with friends, over two glorious hours of hot yoga and getting my life organized. Last night we met our friends Lelia and Matt for dinner at Sir Edmond Halley's. Sir Ed's is a and old Charlotte establishment that is tucked away behind a shopping [...]

  • Slacking, Working, Talking

    { 4 comments }

    I was not feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed (what does bushy tailed even mean anyway?) when my alarm went off at 5:30 this morning. Despite being physically exhausted, I could not sleep last night. I was wide awake until about 1 a.m. before finally dozing off. I hate sleep issues. I hit the snooze [...]

  • A Needed Break

    Today was my Friday and I have no work responsibilities until next Thursday. I am really excited about this break. It is so needed. I'm finally going to tackle some unfun tasks like figuring out how to file for our first time home buyer's credit, finally getting a NC license plate (I still have Alabama [...]
