New Day, New Blog

Dear fellow bloggers and readers, 

I have come to the decision to reinvent my blog.  No longer will it be limited to fashion, but I am extending my blog to discussions on music, upcoming events, and things to do in Georgia (or elsewhere I travel) to encompass my other interests,and to appeal to a broader audience.

Where to Go:

The Indian Seats Trail:

To start off the rebirth of my blog, I will be discussing my recent hike in Cumming, Georgia.  Last week my friend and I decided to take advantage of the beautiful day, and drove off to the Indian Seats Trail located up the Sawnee Mountain. The trail leads to a beautiful view overlooking Cumming, and if you look in the distance you can make out the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains.

The Indian Seats Trail is named after the two depressions in the granite at the top of the mountain (they seem much bigger in picture than they truly are). I would strongly recommend hiking the Indian Seats Trail if you're looking for a pretty hike that isn't too long; this one is about 4 miles total.  

Music- up and Coming:

The Neighborhood: 

This is one of my new favorite bands; their sound is so unique and their lyrics are catchy without being Pop.  I am so disappointed that I could not go to their concert yesterday, but I heard it was amazing! I found out about the concert about 3 or 4 days before the event, and the tickets were only $12 online and $15 at the door, so I decided to wait and get them at the door.  A few days after a friend told me that the ticket price had increased to over $90....no way I was going to spend that much on a band I had just recently discovered, regardless how good they are.  The 1975, another band I recently discovered, opened for The Neighbourhood.  

The starter songs, as I like to call them (songs that get you started to see if you like the band or not, usually their most popular songs), for The Neighbourhood is Sweather Weather and for The 1975 it's Chocolate. Hope you enjoy them! :)

Sunny Day and Star Provisions

Madewell Shorts
Forever 21 Tank

Sometimes when my family feels as if we are "stuck in the suburbs", we take advantage of mom's downtown work errands and turn them into a family outing.  Sure, sitting in a fabric store for hours on end isn't my ideal family outing either, but the proceeding delicious lunch at Star Provisions afterwards surely hits the spot.  If you ever get the chance to grab a bite to eat there, I highly recommend taking home one of their irresistible assortments of desserts!
