Yellow Dog Bread Co.

December 2, 2015 § 1 Comment

I was back home in the Carolinas last week for the holidays and spent the entire time sleeping in and eating poultry with my love. Tough life. I also had plenty of time to visit all my favorite shops and some newbies (Holder Goods & Crafts! Woo!). I love Raleigh because it feels like a wonderfully kept secret (even though it’s one of the fastest growing city in America). Somehow, I had never been to Yellow Dog Bread Co., so Danny suggested we go. I regret not buying bread for our Thanksgiving table or at least a dozen toasted-coconut almond scones for the road, but maybe next time. Here are some photos of Yellow Dog because I had to pass along the pretty.

Fall + Raleigh

November 2, 2015 § 1 Comment

Raleigh makes me happy. Not just because my boyfriend live there, which probably helps, but because it’s a great city. I went for a long weekend in October and it was perfect timing.  Weather, food, friends, errythang good… We stopped by all our favorite spots- coffee shops (Brew, Morning Times), restaurants (Beasley’s, Joule, Busy Bee, the Pit) (lots of comfort food for real), and did some fall festivities involving pumpkins and scary movies. How easy it is to miss the South when you’re away from it!

I brought my camera along and only managed to take photos over drinks at Bittersweet (they were pretty!), a random pumpkin patch photo, and some street views. If i was smarter I would have taken a photo of my “Eggs Beasley’s” at brunch. My bad.

Sweatpants. Hair Tied. (& Valentine’s)

February 14, 2015 § 1 Comment

Chillin’ with no makeup on…. Is how I’ll be spending Valentine’s Day. Obviously listening to new Drake. His surprise album is what I’ve now dubbed as V-Day Miracle 2015, and I plan on listening to it on repeat through the weekend.  Danny and I are both sick-ish. So we have no reason to do anything but spend Saturday in our pajamas. He made a boss avgolemono soup (he introduced me to this Greek magic & it’s my absolute favorite!) and I have magazine reading to catch up on. It’s v cold in Raleigh, but nice (nothing like NYFW cold). And we have kissing to do.

My picks, accordingly.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetMornings as of late? Close to perfect. By now, spring is basically summer in Charleston and I can’t remember feeling so warm (and dare I say it- calm) in far too long.  My twenty-first birthday kicked off the first day of the month and the invisible, twinkly, birthday magic hasn’t exactly stopped. I don’t know why. I keep telling it to stop. But things, right now, 100% rule. I have finally recovered from the exam week from hell, where I briefly hated being awake in the morning, since they were not entirely mornings but nights rolling into the next day, all of which were soul-sucking and awful. And like all difficult things, it ended quicker than I could continue to continue to cry over it.  Since, everything feels beyond shocking in its simplicity. Mornings are laying in bed with actually nothing to do…for hours…but bask in the emptiness, and freedom, of that feeling.  I’ve had mornings at work, mornings in cafés, mornings at barre classes, mornings on a yoga mat, mornings oversleeping, mornings in Raleigh full of love & coffee & listening to Danny practice keyboards or guitar or sing that new Usher single, mornings on the beach with cocktails & hung over, happy people, mornings celebrating my mom & all mothers, mornings celebrating me. And I don’t why it matters, but it all does.
