Uptown Chili Thai

Joe and I have lived in Columbus for almost 2 years now and we’ve noticed that we get into a rut with restaurants. There are so many restaurants here but we almost always end up visiting the same places. I suppose it has something to do with comfort zones and, in part, laziness. We have recently been trying to branch out for lunches on our out-of-house excursions, and happened across this restaurant called Uptown Chili Thai, which was just one street over from he main shopping strip in the Uptown area. I’d heard about it before but never thought much about trying it because it wasn’t ever in our direct line of sight when we were in the area.

So far we’ve styled Floral Sundresses and Ankle Boots for you all. The vote this month was divided but we landed on the challenge of mixing prints. It’s something I’ve wanted to try for a while but this finally gives me an excuse to experiment and do something different.

We’ve returned to hot weather here in Georgia, despite the blissful chilly snap we had for the past couple of days. I’ve already begun my Fall Transformation, though, and since it’s nearing Halloween I wanted to wear something a little “darker” than I’d usually choose. Even so, I just had to go with an iced coffee (because it’s hot and I’m weak.)

The One My Soul Loves

Photos all taken by the amazing Brittany at Brittany Martorella Photography

Love is full of clichés, and there’s nothing wrong with that. He really does know me better than I know myself. He is my light, my best friend, my home. He gives me butterflies and drives me absolutely insane, sometimes at the same time.

I could prattle on forever with quotes from literature or movies about love and how profound it is. I could compare our love to that of the greats, the idols of romantic relationships, but none of that really seems accurate.

When the Georgia heat lets up its relentless reign over the south for a day or two, you rejoice and take advantage of it. The high yesterday was a cool 75 degrees, and that wasn’t until 4 or 5 in the afternoon. That left most all day in the 50’s and 60’s. I gladly dredged a sweater out of the depths of my closet and leaped outside into the crisp air. (Can you tell I love fall?)

Product Review // Color Street Nail Polish Strips

I was recently sent a set of Color Street Nail Strips & an accent nail sample by my friend Rosy at Radiantly Rosy (you’ll recognize her from the Six Blogger Style series we’ve been doing together!) I’ve used nail strips from other brands in the past but was usually less than impressed between time and effort to apply & also durability. I’ve been pleased with Color Street’s products.
