Update!

Hey Friends,

I changed the theme of my blog, and also edited the name a little bit. I think the name will better represent where I would like this blog to go! I hope you’ll continue joining me on my journey! 

PSA for ATL restaurants: I would love to feature your restaurant on my blog! Give me a reason & an address – when I’m free I’ll drop by!

Union Station Hotel in Nashville, Autograph Collection

Have you been to the  Union Station Hotel in Nashville? I recently got to check it out and, needless to say,  I loved it. Although, I did find the space awkward for a wedding, I did love the space  and all of the unique and detailed moldings around the hotel.

 I love the candles on the mantle

 I assume the table is where the bride, bridegroom & special guests will be seated (parents or maid of honor/bridesmaid/groomsmen).

The issue I have with a wedding in the beautiful venue is the lack of control on the ingress/egress of people. Hotel patrons can come in, check in & dine at the Hotel’s restaurant while your ceremony is occurring. Something about that seems unnatural, out of place, and incredibly impersonal to me. Hypothetically (and realistically), random strangers could be checking into their room as the couple ties the knot. Any how, great space — maybe just not the appropriate wedding venue.

Halal Drinks (Mocktails) & Law School Prom!

Hey Friends!

I might have said this in a former post, but I do not drink alcohol! Not drinking alcohol, and maintaining a social life sometimes seems counterintuitive, and sometimes it is awesome. For example, I remember almost every moment out: the good, the bad, the boring, & the ugly.  I am also able to leave whenever I want.  Seeing as I live in ATL, I literally have to drive everywhere, so not having to share a cab with friends, or waiting around for Uber is a plus!

(Featured drink from Noche: Virgin Margarita)

 Some of my favorite Halal Drink options / Mocktails when I’m out are: Diet Coke, Virgin Margarita, Virgin Shirley Temple, Virgin Mojito (read the ingredients — if it’s a mix pass — but if they’re putting in fresh mint and lemon in your drink, with cane sugar— definitely don’t pass), Sparkling water w/cranberry juice or Spirit with Grapefruit juice.  Although, I almost always get a Diet Coke (hello — I’m counting calories people), it’s always fun to try something different.

I had law school prom (aka: Barrister’s Ball) a few weeks ago, here are a few pictures of the event!

I’m the girl to the left. I bought my dress from ZARA during their Winter Sale. The dress was a size too big, but I took to my local tailor, who did a great job tightening it up. The belt I’m wearing in the middle is from Forever 21. I bought it in the fall of 2010 for $10-$15? I love the belt, it seriously helps jazz up any outfit! You can’t see this, but I’m wearing, NineWest, black peeps toe pumps!

Here are some of the outfits the other girls wore! I hope this helps you gauge what to wear to your prom!

CREPES

I made another BETH recipe. Once again, I loved it!  I cannot wait to go home right now and make more crepes. I’m serious. I’m in law school too — I do not have the time or energy, but I always find my mind trying to convince me otherwise. Long story short — I made it. My only 2 cons are  clean up (I had a bunch of bowls to wash) and the fact that you can only make one crepe at a time (which is annoying when you’re entertaining and want everyone to enjoy a hot fresh crepe).

I stuffed my crepes with Biscoff Cookie Butter and a blueberry jam! I’m thinking about making a savory crepe– any suggestions?
