Doughnut Day / 1

Everyone who knows me knows that when I love something, I REALLY love something. A few things on my list are elephants, The Little Prince, flowers, and doughnuts. Luckily for me, Atlanta has a few places that offer really delicious and unique doughnuts. I teamed up with my lovely photographer friend, Elicia Bryan, and went around the city looking for the best doughnuts. On the first day, we visited Dough and Revolution Doughnuts

I was doing some research and read somewhere that Dough offered vegan doughnuts but unfortunately, they didn't have them that day. Instead, I tried their sticky bun which was pretty tasty. After a few bites, I was eager to move to the next destination. 









Revolution totally spoke my language. They had details everywhere; from their adorable decor to their handwritten menu. Along with a cup of coffee, I ordered the salted caramel, nutella cream, and caramel bacon. Each one was super unique because of their cake-y texture, but the nutella flavor definitely took its place as my personal favorite for day 1. It was oozing with hazelnut chocolate goodness, and the texture was amazing.












Hope y'all enjoyed my first Doughnut Day. There are a few more posts coming soon, so stay tuned <3

Late Night Musings

There is something so raw and beautiful about the way a new idea is born. The countless hours of daydreaming and brainstorming about how it will turn into reality. The way an artist speaks so passionately and genuinely about the subject. The hope that maybe this could be "the" big idea because more often times than not, an artist will go through a trial and error phase until something sticks.

For awhile, I never identified myself as an artist. I put the title on a pedestal because I thought only people who had exhibitions, a huge following, and out-of-this-world talent, could be deserving enough. But it just dawned on me (literally as I am typing this post out) that I have been an artist my whole life. I never had crazy enough talent to get my work into museums, but the way I have expressed myself has always been better without words. No matter where I was or what season I was going through, I had a strong desire to create beauty. Whether it was when I was a little girl and made crepe paper flowers, or when I was studying at Parsons doing typography projects, I realized there has been a trend throughout my entire life: my hands needed to create something.

Now that we have entered a digital world where everything is accessible, it occurred to me how important the creative process is. It's something that most people overlook because they are more consumed with the end result, but for me, the creative process is everything. It's a sacred time when my head and heart meet and my hands are happy to create. And just like how I used to jump from one hobby to the next, my creative process is always evolving. Whether it's sketching and doodling in a notebook, or curating inspiration boards, it's something I hope to always remember to preserve.

I encourage you artists to do the same. Don't speed through the process; enjoy it, cherish it, remember it.

p.s. These are my late night musings, so apologies if I jumped all over the place. Just my stream of consciousness!

The weather has been fickle as usual in Atlanta, so the jackets and layers still stay on. But I did snag this top and can't wait to wear it soon!

You may all know how much I love Instagram and how much it has helped my business grow. This free e-book is a great overlook on some new strategies for 2014. 

My roommate told me about this brand and I am absolutely obsessed. 

One of my long-time favorite bloggers launched this with Target. So fun!

Only 15 days until our wedding day and a few more days after that until we stay here. Pinch me.
