My Favorite Charlotte Restaurants

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. Soul Gastrolounge […]

My Fitness Journey

Alo Yoga Bra // Leggings Happy Friday!  I thought you might enjoy reading about my fitness journey, my current fitness routine, and my general thoughts on fitness. I played soccer in middle and high school, but I wasn’t very good at it or serious about it.  When I was in college, all I can remember doing for fitness were long power walks with my girlfriends and maybe the elliptical machine for 30 minutes on occasion.  The first time I ever worked out consistently was after college.  I started taking yoga classes, and I really enjoyed it.  I was also a member at a gym, so I would do some cardio, too: the treadmill, elliptical, or the stair climber.  I love […]

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 […]

Vegan Update: Week 4

Oatmeal with granola, almond butter, and banana. Happy Monday!  We are OFFICIALLY in the homestretch of our 30 day vegan diet!!  I am actually having my first non-vegan meal on Wednesday night (the 30th day) because I am going out for a birthday dinner and I’ll be honest: I’m just not going out again and eating vegan!  I went out with a girlfriend last week who was in town visiting.  She wanted to try a new restaurant, Zeppelin.  I was eager to try it, too!  They are known for having great cocktails and interesting small plates.  Well, it turned out I was getting my eyebrows done the next day (permanent makeup), so I couldn’t drink alcohol.  To make matters worse, […]
