Photo 1: Bright Flowers

On Saturday while out grocery shopping for a get-together we were hosting later that evening, I picked up a bundle of bright orange roses and a handful of matching tulips. I normally gravitate towards all things, pink, but I just couldn't get over how much I loved the color of these flowers! As soon as I got home I popped them in water and they instantly brightened up our home! I feel like more sherbet colored flowers will be in our future!

Last Monday I talked about our trip to the beach and how heavenly it ended up being! We had SO much fun that we pretty much duplicated last Sunday’s adventure, and I’ve got to tell you, it was just as wonderful!

We left strait from church, changed in a grocery store (ha!), popped into Da Kine Diego’s for lunch, and headed straight out to the beach. It was THE best afternoon!

On Sunday evening we had a big family dinner out by the pool at my parents house, which is one of my very favorite things in life. Sitting outside drinking white wine, eating great food, and laughing the night away… does it get any better than that?! Family night is my absolute fave. And to be quite honest, it doesn’t hurt that my sister always brings some sort of unreal dessert, and last night, it was lemon pie. Oh my gosh, I wish you were all there to have had a taste, it was THAT good! 

 

(P.S. Lemon Pie Recipe!)

A Southern Favorite

Last week I mentioned that Ryan and I will be heading to the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival (details below) in June and that we could NOT be any more excited! 

In preparation for the food coma that will surely be in our future, we decided to hop on over to one of our favorite local spots for some good ole’ Southern cooking. Chefs James and Julie Petrakis (husband and wife team) are responsible for more than a few Southern-inspired culinary hot spots in Orlando including Cask & Larder and The Ravenous Pig.

Speaking of Cask & Larder, it has long been one of our favorite date spots in town! You can always count on delicious Southern comfort food, cocktails to be shaken to perfection, and for the vibe to be hoppin’. You’ll also enjoy the BEST bbq chicken you’ve ever eaten! Every time we go to C&L we try and switch up what we order to experience something new on their seasonal menu (with the exception of the bbq chicken, we will FOREVER order the bbq chicken!). The best thing about Cask & Larder is that their Southern food is truly an art form and each visit we fall more in love with Chef James and Julie’s work.  

 

If you are like me then you probably love a good recommendation on what to order, so write this down people… this is good stuff!

Cocktails:

Gin & Tonic:  C&L is know for its “on tap” Gin & Tonic. For good reason, it’s pretty much the best cocktail you’ll ever have. Made with Ransom dry gin & Jack Rudy small batch tonic. 

Bourbon Old Fashioned: Um, if you like whiskey, this will make you VERY happy. Brown-butter-infused Old Forester bourbon, smoked simple syrup, angostura & orange bitters. Also, I am pretty sure I saw the bartender carve the ice cube from a block of ice, so there’s that.

Appetizers & Fixin’s:

Oysters: If you like oysters, you will love C&L’s with hot sauce and crackers!

Mac & Cheese: I can’t with this one, I have no words.

Salads:

Kale Salad – I have ranted and raved over this salad since the first time I had it. If you go to Cask & Larder and don’t get the kale salad, I’m not sure we can be friends! (peaches, avocado, beets, almond granola, bacon vinaigrette)

Plates:

Nashville Hot Chicken – This will forever be my favorite dish. So. Good.

Desserts:

Ice Cream Sandwiches – I mean, who doesn’t love an ice cream sandwich?! (spiced honey cookie, blood orange semifreddo, grapefruit marmalade, honeycomb bark).

Deconstructed Napoleon – AKA the best thing I’ve ever had. (brûléed banana, citrus cream, chocolate-bourbon ice cream, passion fruit).

 

View More: http://daniellenicholphotography.pass.us/abd

 

Chef James Petrakis will be attending as talent at The Atlanta Food and Wine Festival in June, and I can’t wait to see what he will be cooking up! 

If you are looking to get a little Food & Wine Festival preview, hop on over to Cask & Larder! 

This will be my first year attending the Food & Wine Festival but I have heard so many wonderful things about the event! One thing everyone raves about is how truly educational it is. Not only are you able to enjoy all the good things, but there are classes you can attend (Wine & Flowers, I’m looking at you!) on pairings, wine and whiskey tastings, how to’s, and the history on certain foods. I feel like this is going to be a weekend that we won’t forget! 

I’d love for you to come and toast to what I have been told is the best weekend all year!!

So, treat yo’ self and buy your tickets here —> Atlanta Food & Wine Festival Tickets

Maxi Skirt Magic

I am usually a dress girl, but when I saw this sunny yellow maxi skirt it was love at first sight. I love outfits that are simple, easy to wear, a bit timeless, and of course colorful. And this skirt is all the things, and more! I wore this outfit out on a Saturday afternoon while I ran errands in flats, and then slipped a pair of wedges on for dinner outside on Saturday night!

And this skirt is all the things, and more! I wore this outfit out on a Saturday afternoon while I ran errands in flats, and then slipped a pair of wedges on for dinner outside on Saturday night! The tied up white tee made the outfit a bit flirty but not over the top. I feel like I may be living in this combination this Summer, plus be real, you can never go wrong with a white tee!

Another thing that I love about this outfit is THE bag. When I am out and about running errands I like to be as hands free as possible, but I am still a girl and I have A LOT of things (like snacks) that I take with me at all times. This beautiful saddle bag from J. McLaughlin is perfect! Recently it’s been the bag I grab when I am running out the front door! 

P.S. This skirt is on SALE! Hop on over to Chic Wish and scoop it up, and while your at it, get this little dress too, it’s ADORABLE.

On Saturday afternoon I packed up my tote with my new book, a blanket, some snacks, a pair of sunnies, and headed out to find the perfect shady spot to spend some time diving into Wild and Free. My good friends Jess & Hayley wrote this beautiful book and I could not be more proud of them!  If you haven’t already pre-ordered Wild and Free, you need to right now. The words in this book are incredibly beautiful and will both hug your heart and give it freedom!

P.S. Jess and Hayley, you two are amazing!

Photo 3: A Spontaneous Adventure

We are those people. Those people who live an hour away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and quite literally never go. It’s kind of the saddest thing ever. So on Saturday night we made a pact to no longer be those people. Early Sunday morning before church we threw together a beach bag with just the necessities and vowed to leave straight from church to the beach. We might have to change clothes in a Wallgreens, but gosh darn it, we are going to the beach!  And that is just what we did. It ended up being kind of the best day. On our way to the beach we stopped by Da Kine Diego’s (if you are in the Indialantic area, you NEED to go. It’s the BEST burrito shack!) and picked up a couple of burritos to-go, then headed out to the beach for a few hours of pure bliss. We wrapped up our adventure at Sands on the Beach to toast our magical day! I even managed to scoop up a few seashells to take home with us, I cleaned them off and put them in a jar on our coffee table to remind us that we need more trips to the beach in our life!

Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!!

My Favorite Hair Tools!

If I am going to do my hair in the morning, then it needs to be a quick and painless adventure. I’m unfortunately not one of those girls who can go without washing their hair each day. Washing is pretty much a MUST. I have very fine but also thick(-ish) hair so washing it daily is just a thing I have come to accept. This being the case, I am constantly trying to switch up my beauty routine in order to cut time while not damaging my hair. Good news? As of 2 1/2 months ago I finally landed on what I like to call my hair dream team and I am thrilled to introduce you to the main players! 

 

View More: http://daniellenicholphotography.pass.us/abd

 

The T3 hairdryer has quite literally changed my mornings. Not only is this thing like a jet engine, but it drys my hair in less than five minutes. To say that it is magical is a total understatement. 

 

View More: http://daniellenicholphotography.pass.us/abd

 

I like to use Herbivore Botanicals Sea Spray in my hair while it is still wet to give it that extra “umph” and then quickly dry it with the T3 dryer. My hair without product is baby soft and useless to style, if I don’t put product in, it will literally just lay there. So the HB Sea Spray is a life saver. 

 

View More: http://daniellenicholphotography.pass.us/abd

 

Once my hair is dry I quickly section it out and run the GHD curling iron through it. Now, let’s just talk about this curling iron for a second. IT’S A GAME CHANGER. Seriously. 

I was using CHI curling iron, and I can honestly say that it doesn’t hold a candle to this one. Not only does if heat up fully in 16 seconds, yes, 16 seconds, but my very fine hair seems to hold this particular curling iron’s curl. If I was sent to a desert island, I’d bring this thing with me. 

 

View More: http://daniellenicholphotography.pass.us/abd

 

Once I get through and around my entire head, I shake out the curls and add in a bit of Batiste Dry Shampoo for added texture and hold. After that, I make sure all of the pieces are where I wanted them, spray my whole head down with Big Sexy Hairspray, and call it a day! 

The great thing about this entire processes that it takes me just a little over 10 minutes. THAT IS IT. I’m telling you, if you do nothing but upgrade your curling iron / hairdryer this week, you will be able to call it one successful week. I pinky promise!

Beach Day Essentials

Friends, I am so excited to introduce you to our new series called “My ABD” today. We are going to be interviewing a few of our favorite gal pals to see how they are using their ABD! And first up, we have the ladies from Palm Beach Lately

If you haven’t heard of Palm Beach Lately, then you may have been living under a rock (ahem, or a palm tree!), so get yourself familiar! Palm Beach Lately, created by sisters Beth Aschenbach and Danielle Norcross, is an inspiring lifestyle brand that features the latest fashion, home, social and travel trends through its popular blog and online shop.

As sisters who live in the sunshine state, you will often find us at the beach, by the pool or on a boat, and we are always on the lookout for both stylish and practical products that we can toss into our banana leaf tote

When we spotted the ‘Work It’ Water Bottle and ‘Touch Ups’ Cosmetic Zip Pouch by Ashley Brooke Designs, we fell in love with ABD’s signature handwriting, fun sayings and the pop of pink we love so much! We are constantly drinking water and enjoy adding fruit for yummy flavor, so the chic water bottle’s size and shape are great for keeping us hydrated. We also need a place to store our favorite lip glosses and loose ends and the new canvas pouch couldn’t be cuter! The gold zipper and pink lining goes perfect with our style and the small size makes it easy to find what we’re looking for!
