The Spotlight: Tupelo Honey Cafe + Review

A few blogger friends (thanks for the invite CM Writer of Your Boyfriend’s Best Girlfriend blog) got together on Friday to check out Tupelo Honey Cafe located in South End. Before the restaurant’s arrival in Charlotte (they opened in December) there was much buzz about the venue. People had tried out the Asheville location and from what I gathered there was a cult following….lines out the door and people waiting for hours. I can see why! From beginning to end the food was impressive. See all my food pictures here. We all ordered different appetizers and entrees so [...]

The Spotlight: Bistro La Bon

Bistro La Bon logoHave you guys tried out Bistro La Bon yet? This restaurant is a little known gem in Plaza Midwood. You may bypass it due to it’s location in the middle of a strip mall but you would be missing out, friend!

Front Row Charlotte: Fashion for a Good Cause

In its third year, Front Row Charlotte (FRC) is more than just a fashion show. It’s an event (which sells out year after year I might add) that showcases head to toe looks from local boutiques–and after the show all the looks, including jewelry can be purchased on-site. This year’s event was held at Centerstage@NoDa and featured Coral, Our Place, Coplon’s, Social Dress Shop, Poole Shop, Erin McDermott Jewelry and Melvin Jewelry.

What sets FRC apart from other fashion events is a significant one…all the money raised goes to charity. This year the beneficiary was Baby Bundles. They literally bundle [...]
