Yesterday my hubbae and I took a trip to the Starlight Drive-in, a outside theatre that becomes what the webs tire describes as a good ol’ “swap meet” on the weekends. Still exploring our neighborhood we decided to take the a 20 minute walk up Moreland Ave with the intentions to browse and not to buy. However, when we set our eyes on the first appealing piece of furniture I immediately placed us on the HGTV TV show Flea Market Flip. A segment where teams of two search to find three pieces of furniture at the flea market to up-cycle and sell at another market for profit. The team that makes the most wins. We played around with a couple ideas from finds we saw but with the notion that we could come back. Until the last hour we discovered a pair of distressed wooden bar stools. Tempted but not sold we were about to walk away until the seller said,”It is the last hour, I can give it to you for $10.00.” And suddenly we were walking up the dusty road with stools over our shoulder. Can not wait to see the finished results.
Flea Market Flip Tips:
1. End of the day equals end of the day deals: Sellers want to sell. So the last hour they will go further down in prices to get rid of the merchandise.
2. You can always bargain: If the seller say $150 counteract with $100. You will be surprised what the answer could be.
3. Make them sweat: If a seller is acting as if a bargain is not in the cards. Walk away for a few, they will more than likely come down on the price.

I don’t know where I am going but attending workshops at Google is a pretty good start.
PRO: Mouth watering food places I never knew existed like Chick-fil-a, Papadaux, and American Deli.
Cons: Im gaining weight!
I’m not on the verge of rolling down the stairs but indulging on my honeymoon for two weeks then settling in my new home state of Atlanta, Georgia I think I have managed to gain some of the pounds I diligently lost throughout the year. What is even more of a bummer is my $25.00 a year membership from 24Hour Fitness is insignificant because there is not one within 20 mile radius, making the need to exercise daily a mission. Therefore I have to rely on my neighborhood runs with 20 minute workouts to keep me right throughout the majority of the week. Here are a couple that have helped my buns reach the peak of steel when I could not hit the gym
I know the instructors hairstyle reflects the date of this video but I like it because it is basic Pilates. Keeps me stretched and toned until I can hit the gym for the weight training. Read More

I wore this beautiful cream lace dress for my bridal shower and my headpiece my lovely friend made to compliment my reception dress. I love them both equally! The NastyGal dress has so many unique details that if was not a soft solid color you would think it was to busy to wear. I envisioned an epic shoot in Paris. somewhere in the nook of one of those massive historical sites like the Lourve or Notre Dame but since the cold weather did not permit a outside shoot and I settled for snapshots in my favorite part of our temporary apartment.

For the pass couple of seasons there was a shrinkage in my desire to look a street style during Fashion Week. Yes, there were some moments when I was like cute but never anything to put in the archives: and when I say archives I mean Pinterest. However, something about this season snapshots has me saying, “I will strip that right off of you like, NOW.” Check out some looks I am completely enamored with:

I posted the post above in Pinterest with the tag line, “When I go into my fiancé’s closet I come out like this.” Was amazed to see how many Pinners pinned the image over the last year. Do you think it is because of the outfit or because it is Miley Cyrus in the outfit? Hmmm
The pretty little things our apartment brings.From London to Paris we have enjoyed the character of each home. Thanks AirBnB.
Push me off of that cliff so I can fly. I promise I will not try and grab what is behind. Ready to fall over to the other side because I know you will pick me up and reveal the truth that has been hiding inside.
