These coats have the edge of moto jackets, mixed with chic accents and simple lines.

lavish in atlanta

I would love to attend this weekend event here in Atlanta. If you have the funds/time to see all the interesting things Lavish has to offer, please register! There will be multiple speakers and events that focus on promoting your blog into a business.

{the following statements were pulled from lavish's webste}
Believe it or not, lavish! began as a mere tweet-up.  Yes.

The brainchild of veteran social media enthusiast, Shameeka Ayers (a.k.a. The Broke Socialite),lavish! was created as an alternative to the Mommy/Techie/Pundit social media scenes.  Much to their credit, the aforementioned communities organized themselves and are now forces to be reckoned with in the blogosphere.
Having attended several social media conferences and workshops, Shameeka noticed a void in the educational content and networking opportunities for bloggers who were thriving in traditional lifestyle categories:
    Fashion and Beauty
•    Food and Wine
•    Shelter and Interiors
•    Travel and Leisure
•    Creative Arts
•    General Lifestyle

black details in kitchens

I'm really enjoying all of the black found in these kitchens. . .
Especially those black stained wood cabinets below!

wooden beams / clean lines

The attraction to "Modern/Minimal" has recently evolved into "Modern/Rustic" for me. I have found myself leaning towards raw woods paired with clean lines. And I can't get enough! I think these images describe the complimentary qualities I am talking about .  .  .

I have passed this adorable store on the corner of my street for months now, wondering and wanting to go in, but never having the time. I finally got to pop my head in, as well as speak briefly to one of their designers, to find exactly what it is that they do. Very impressed by their craftsmanship, colors and simplicity, I introduce to you, Blabla.

"Blabla's collection is designed by Florence Wetterwald and knitted by Peruvian artisans. Everything is made from natural fibers of exceptional quality grown in Peru, making the line irresistibly soft and cuddly.
Florence's poetic, simple and vibrant style combined with the ancestral knowledge of the knitters has created products which look contemporary, yet feel like old friends."
