House Update

Happy Monday friends!  People keep asking for a house update, and the reason there hasn’t been one is because nothing has really happened.  We were working with the architect, and once we had the plan pretty much done (meaning no walls were going to move, but small changes to doors and windows could still be made), the architect started working with the engineer (who ensures everything is structural sound with the house).  That took FOREVER, but the plans have finally been stamped by the engineer and they are now with the city getting permits (which I am sure is not a super fast process either).  The thing with building, you can’t do a dang thing until you have a permit, […]

Patio at Foxcroft Wine Co.  Image via AmericasCuisine.com. Happy Friday!  I had a request a while back to round up my favorite places to eat in Charlotte, so here they are, just in time for the weekend.  I LOVE food (too much), so this was a fun one to write and made me really hungry!  I honestly complain about the food scene in Charlotte, but after writing this list, it made me realize we have some pretty legit restaurants.  I definitely tend to stick with what I know, and all of these below are in the rotation.  Lance and I also make a list of new places to try each year, so I have listed those below as well.

Powder Brows with Blakeley Shea

Happy Wednesday babes!  I am SO excited to share my experience of getting PMU (permanent makeup) Powder Brows with my girl Blakeley of B Shea Vanity.  I think there are a lot of questions and confusion over the whole process, so I’m going to break it all down for you! First of all, the term you have probably heard/seen the most is Microblading.  It is a form of permanent makeup that uses a needle to cut the skin and deposit pigment, creating tiny hair strokes.  This is NOT what I had done, but Blakeley does also offer this service IF that’s the right service for you! I have never been a huge fan of the look of Microblading; I have […]
