And a few of my favorites

Why It's important To Support Your Friend's Business

I've recently sat back and realized how many people I know personally that have started their own business. Whether it's a friend, a family member, colleague, or whoever you may know, it's so important to support them. You never know whose small town dreams can turn into a booming business in the blink of an eye. But it takes the people close to them and their support to really achieve their dreams to their fullest potential. I'm going to share a few of my favorites with you to really show you why it's important to support your friends.

ALV Jewels

I am such a big fan of jewelry and Allie's are some of my favorites. Founded by of of my sorority sisters, Allie Vanata, ALV helps every girl accessorize in stones since 2015. I have bought numerous druzy wraps and get so many compliments on them! You can order one too at http://www.alvjewels.com/shop-online/


I'm probably one of the biggest Disney fans that you will ever meet, and Rachel started designing custom Mickey ears! Although I haven't bought one because I haven't booked a trip back to Disney yet, it is definitely fun to window shop her store! She so has adorable drink sleeves! If you're a Disney fan, you should definitely check out her Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/GoldenFlowerCo?ref=searc...


Momma of 3, Lindsay, makes insulators that cover just about anything! And work great when trying to keep something cold! So whether you're looking to keep a drink, baby cup, your lunch, or even tour popsicles cold, she is definitely your lady! Find the cover you're looking for at http://www.insulatorz.com

Just a few of my favorites local shops from people I know. And you can make a difference in your friends businesses by supporting them as well!

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
