Dishcrawl

Last week I attended my second dish crawl event. This concept has been going on around the country for several year but just recently made its way to Memphis. Here's how it works:

The local dish crawl ambassador reaches out to local restaurants and lines up four within walking distance to participate on a given night, once the date is set tickets go on sale for $45 each limited to 40 people. Two days before the event participants are emailed the meet-up location and the other three are kept a secret. Each restaurant gets the opportunity to speak to the group and provides a small plate of three bites. Water is provided at each place sheeting and drinks can be purchased from the restaurant directly.

So here's the goodies from the event:

Rizzos Diner

 
Yum, I love rizzos. They have a lobster pronto pup, how cool is that? They also do any amazing grits and duck - for this event that was made into little fritters which I hope becomes a thing. It's very small so either get there early or make a reservation. Oh, and they've been on " diners, drive ins , and dives" on food network.

Grawemeyers



A German American restaurant in Memphis that somehow I had never heard of. I loved the little burger. The vibe is really cool too, kinda had a speakeasy feel but with light. They have piano certain nights, trivia on Tuesdays and are gay friendly, which is great; ill be sure to support. Oh, and they gave a coupon for a free appetizer on my next visit. They are on groupon right now and I suggest you get one.

Spindini



I haven't been here in several years. The vibe is upscale cool and very dark so it could be romantic. The food was good but nothing wowed me. The most important part of this stop was learning that they do 1/2 price pizza and wine on Mondays, HALF OFF on wine y'all - hell yes!

The Corked Carrot


 
I was so excited about this one, marketed as a cupcake and wine bar. However, during his into the owner stated they had changed a bit to focus more on the wine and gave up the cupcake part, boo! The glass of Chardonnay was not bad ( usually I hate Chardonnay) and there was an option for a red but no one in my group got it so I can't comment on it. Since it was the last stop dessert was served, 3 mini muffin like treats with a chocolate dipping sauce and peanut butter mouse. I enjoyed the muffins and chocolate, I'm not a peanut butter but those who are liked the mouse.

So yeah, a fun night of eating. It's a little pricey so I'm not sure yet of this will be my regular thing or not. Tickets sell out fast so if you're interested you have to jump on it. Hope to see you there! PS: Shout out to my foodie, dishcrawlin buddies :)

20 Rules for Modern Feminine Style

One of the things I love about the digital age is the ability to connect with others! I recently got a great idea from a youtuber I follow to make a list of 20 "rules" that define my lifestyle and I really loved this idea and thought not only would this be a good exercise for myself but a good topic to share with y'all. So, obviously you do you and wear whatever you want but these are my guidelines for my modern feminine without breaking the bank aesthetic.
1. Focus on pieces with wear ability beyond one season, don't get sucked into too many trends. For example, gingham will always be wearable for summer, plaid for fall, sweaters for winter and floral for spring - but get pieces with classic cuts so you can wear them year after year. For example, a gingham shirt dress is classic, a gingham top with bell sleeves will look dated the second that shape is out. 2. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for quality timeless pieces - a cashmere sweater, a great blac…

Summer Sparkles with Kendra Scott

 Kendra Scott hosted a blogger event for the Memphis Bloggers and there were lots of pretty pieces to try on and see with some sweet treats as well. Look how beautiful these cookies are! Y'all know I'm a big Kendra Scott fan so of course I had to go and check it out. I tend to buy a few pieces of Kendra Scott jewelry items throughout the year because I love their quality and think they have classic style with a trendy twist. During your birthday month you can get one item 50% off so shopping in July is always especially fun and I tend to go for a more trendy piece. As the newest collection has been released there were plenty of options. If you're looking for a versatile piece to wear with lots of different outfits a neutral color is always a good idea.

Of course, bright colors are never a bad idea either. These tassel pieces came out Spring 2018 and I've had my eye on them ever since then - they're so fun!



And of course I love sparkly and glam so thes…

Brahmin Saddle Creek Grand Opening

Earlier this month the new Brahmin store opened at The Shops of Saddle Creek and Memphis could not have been more excited! I arrived right before the doors opened and there was already a crowd formed ready to explore all the goodies inside. Brahmin provided some delicious champagne punch to toast to the grand opening and it wasn't too long after the doors opened that the store was completely full - it took me 1/2 an hour to check out that's how popular the grand opening was! But enough talk, they say a picture is worth a 1,000 words so I'm keeping the text on this post brief and just letting y'all see all the fun inside. Summer 2018 Collection on display right as you walk in   Yummy snacks provided by Brahmin  As you can see, it was very crowded inside The belt bag - can be worn three ways
The back wall behind the register
All the wristlets!

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…

The Pink Bride Show Review

Wow, somehow it's March already. Time flies when you're busy stressing over the most expensive day of your life. Yep, that means another wedding post.
When we started planning our wedding I relied a lot on online research, and it was very helpful but also very stressful. Too many choices and too hard to differentiate those choices. Luckily we got engaged right before "engagement season" which meant that bridal show season was soon to follow. I was a little skeptical at first and the first one we attended didn't wow us. Yes, I said we - my groom has been very involved in the process. I don't know about y'all but when I'm looking to do something I research it - A LOT! Do y'all remember when "Get Motivated" toured the country? I spent hours reading reviews so I knew exactly when the legit speakers were coming and when the scam speakers went on. But when I went to research the various wedding shows I I couldn't find much beyond their own …
