I am wrapping up the last weekend of Atlanta Fall Classic ll and my mom and I were able to do some fun Christmas shopping today. Our favorite place to shop in Atlanta is the Westside Provisions District because they have so many wonderful stores. We went to Ann Mashburn and fell in love with her new space that is connected to her husbands store. Ann designs some of the clothes but stocks brands like Jenni Kayne, J Brand, TiBi and Butter fingernail polish. The store has the coolest inspiration board and I have to make my own at home. Then we went to the Seed Factory which has the best selection of toys and clothes for kids. I picked out toys for my cousins and scored a new Appaman hat for winter. Next we went to Simply Put that had gathered the best equestrian gifts for the holidays. A bronze horse, Rebecca Ray horse bit bracelets and belts, Linda McCartney coffee table book, horse bottle opener, fireplace matches and best of all tiny horse shoes for stockings. They have beautiful stationary, books, home decor and this funny mustache. Then we ran out of time….YIKES…we have to go back tomorrow to check out Billy Reid and Star Provisions. Luckily, we made it to our reservation at Restaurant Eugene in Buckhead. This place believes in farm to table fresh food and acknowledges the farms on the back of the menu. In 2012 Eugene was named top 40 restaurants in the US and won the James Beard award for best chef in the Southeast. They served us a pear fizzy drink with buttermilk froth, beet and carrot salad and vegetable plate. It was so delicious!!!!
Mom Please….Look at these adorable Jack Russell puppies that were at the Atlanta Fall Classic. These little guys broke my heart and I begged my mom for one for Christmas. If anyone is interested call 404-791-4196 and they are available from High Point Farm. Hopefully, you will have better luck with your mom. Please MOM….Please
My mom and I had the best day in Washington, DC. We went to lunch at Kafe Leopold in Georgetown and topped it off with this dessert called chocolate temptation. Then we went to the Verizon Center to help set up the silent auction for the Washington International Horse Show. Juliet Reid introduced me to some really nice people and the arena looks amazing….. For dinner we ate at the BEST Indian food restaurant called Rasika. The waiter recommended the Palak Chaat which is crispy spinach, sweet yogurt tamarind and date chutney. The best dish ever….and he told me to try a mango yogurt drink to neutralize hot flavors. YUMMY! Then we finally made it to hotel Monaco and we are loving the decor. Night Night…..
