Out With the Old Baggage, In with the New!

Posted on 1 min read 52 views

Hey, lovelies!


It’s been a while! I’ve been making good on my new year’s resolution to travel more, to clear my mind and set my intentions for 2019.

Speaking of sets…

I have a new set from DELSEY USA for traveling this year! While I adore the gorg blue set I was rocking late last year, this new set is sleek, elegant and next-level….which is perfect for 2019.

My new set is from the Aero line. The Aero cases are light-weight, safe and durable. Plus, they have special soft-touch carry handles which are easy on my hands even when I stuffed these cases to the brim with outfits and makeup supplies!

Other features that make these cases my go-to to travel with:

  • These are so easy to maneuver with even in cramped spaces. They have double spinner wheels that can turn on a dime!
  • TSA-approved lock to secure all my belongings- only agents can get in there!
  • Tie-down straps and pockets to help keep everything from jumbling around during flight



If you’re looking for the exact cases you see here, they are the Aero 21″ Spinner and the Aero 25″ Expandable Rolling Luggage!


Best of all, I have a code that allows you to snag 25% off! Just enter notbasicblonde25 at checkout.


Tell me where you’re traveling to this year in the comments!

My Favorite Places in Atlanta

Posted on 2 min read 33 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.
