New Luggage, Who Dis?

Posted on 2 min read 63 views

Hey lovelies!

My followers have probably figured out by now that I’m absolutely obsessed with luggage. I travel a lot. I’m always on the lookout for new luggage that satisfies my key requirements:

It has to look chic and sleek– I’m not a fan of loud patterns and too much details on my luggage. In my opinion, this makes luggage stand out which isn’t a good thing if you’re worried about luggage being misplaced or stolen!

It has to be easy to maneuver– I hate wheeling through the busy crowds of Atlanta Airport and clumsily trying to navigate a clunky suitcase that doesn’t pivot. Ugh, it’s the worst. Any luggage that I have needs to have the capability to turn on a dime, and be pulled vertically or lengthwise!

It has to be durable– I avoid soft-shelled luggage when I can. When I travel with jewelry, tons of makeup and designer pieces, I definitely don’t want them squished or caved in by rough handling during my flights. Hard-shelled cases are a must.

Okay, a lot of requirements, I know. BUT! I’ve found a new set that meets all of these requirements and more! Drumroll, please…

DELSEY USA has a brand new collection, the Turenne! It’s the lightest version of their hardside luggage yet, which makes it so easy to maneuver. Plus all four wheels are double-spinner which makes it easy to turn on a dime.

Some other awesome features:

  • TSA-accepted combination lock
  • Lined interior
  • Two compartments with zippers
  • Packing bags for shoes and laundry
  • ZIP SECURITECH zipper (41 times stronger than a regular zipper!)

If you’re looking for a luggage upgrade, check out the Turenne here! You can also score 25% off with my code notbasicblonde25.

Happy shopping!

My Favorite Places in Atlanta

Posted on 2 min read 61 views

Hello, lovelies!


As most of you know, I’m based out of Atlanta, Georgia. If you’ve ever visited or live in the area too, you know that Atlanta is a bustling city with a ton of things to do. I figured today I’d share with my readers my favorite spots in Atlanta to spend the day. Of course, that’ll entail two of my most favorite activities- shopping and trying unique restaurants!

My Favorite Shopping Spots

Lennox Square Mall– Lennox is an area staple in Atlanta that features a regular mix of mid-level brands to high-level. I like to go here on occasion for the regular, casual mall experience.

Phipps Plaza- Phipps Plaza is sometimes affectionately referred to as the “Rodeo Drive of Atlanta”. You’ll find all the luxury and high-end boutiques you could ask for here, from Versace and Guiseppe and everywhere in between.

The Shops at Buckhead– If you’ve ever been to the shops at Buckhead, you may recognize the background of some of my photos. This is the spot I do most of my photoshoots for the blog and new outfits at, plus it’s got some of my favorite lunch destinations around!

Speaking of photoshoots, what do you think of my VICI dress? It’s the Wilshire Cotton Ruffle Wrap Dress made of chambray. I’m loving it for summer, it’s the ultimate light summer dress with flirty detailing. You can find it here!

My Must-Try Lunch Destinations

American Cut– The draw of this modern steakhouse is definitely the rooftop bar. I recommend the salmon and steak, and the views from the top!

Southern Gentleman– The Southern Gentleman brands itself as New-American meets Southern fare. The menu is seasonal and thoughtful. I love to order pretty much any seafood dish on the menu, as well as their deviled eggs. Must have cocktail is definitely the Moscow Mule.

Gypsy Kitchen– Gypsy Kitchen is a totally modern restaurant. They have a predominantly Spanish menu, with Indian and Moroccan influences that make for a rich selection. When I head to Gypsy Kitchen, I’ll often order the octopus, potato bravas, the shrimp, mushrooms, chicken croquettes or the charcuterie board. It seems like everything on the menu is absolutely delicious.

Taverna Atlanta– This restaurant is a Northern Italian themed restaurant. It’s a great place to grab wine on the patio and try one of their rich risottos.
