The Beauty of Smeg

If you're as staunchly a subscriber to the religion of 
retro-cool and vintage-chic as I,
then you've no doubt come across photos in all genres of glossy magazines,
featuring perfectly-styled kitchen photo spreads,
beautifully accented by Smeg appliances

Inspired: All White Bedrooms

 One of my favorite things about autumn
 is the excitement in decorating and prepping for the holiday season. 
I'm so inspired, in fact, that I've decided that my bedroom needs an overhaul, a pick-me-up, a new feel, a makeover, a breath of fresh air...And I think I'm going to do something drastic.....

Georgia On My Mind

I'm such a sucker for personality tests...so when I took this test some time ago
I was surprised to find that I'd fit in well if I decided to live in Georgia!

So when the opportunity recently presented itself to accompany my best friend, Kristie,
 on a weekend getaway to the Dogwood City, I was thrilled! 
Kristie's mission was to catch a Braves game at Turner field, before its 2017 closing,
and mine was to check a trip to the world's largest aquarium off of my bucket list. 
While we were certainly successful in executing both missions, even scoring an impromptu and complimentary behind the scenes tour of the world's largest fish tank at the Georgia Aquarium,
our time spent in Atlanta was so much more charming than either of us ever expected!

Inspired: Favorite International Chefs and Shows

I love watching cooking shows...cooking shows of all kinds!
But lately I've found that the majority of my favorite cooking shows are all international.
While I certainly have a few favorite recipes from Alton, and Ina, and Martha, I'm so inspired by the varied ingredients, farm-fresh options, and simple and delicious techniques adopted by international chefs.
