Atlanta's Hidden Treasures
When people ask me why I choose Atlanta, I simply tell them it's because of our hidden treasures. I'll admit, I don't see myself settling down here. In the time being Atlanta is fine, and it is quickly growing on me. Atlanta has a lot of positive things to offer the creatives.
Even Atlanta's flaws become a inside joke.
If you live in Atlanta you know we have many jokes about traffic, drivers, and ridiculous one way streets. It's common to pass around the blinker comment at parties. (For those not in Atlanta, people seem to forget what a blinker is for)
But we love Atlanta for her scars, flaws and imperfections.
While the traffic may be bad, Atlanta has some wonderful things to offer. We have a thriving art community, local music is the shit, and plenty of tastes for foodies. With the coming of Hollywood here Atlanta just keeps getting more and more to look forward to.
Atlanta is very unique.
One of my favorite things about this city is that we are unique. Apart from our music and art scene, there is a intriguing fashion scene. Just walk around the city and you will be enthralled in our atmosphere. Unique styles, impressive street art and performers. Just don't forget to bring your camera.
Atlanta has the cutest hidden treasures, all you have to do is look.
One only has to take a walk in one of our neighborhoods to find a cute bistro or coffee shop.
We have book stores, record shops, and art galleries all throughout the city.
Another great thing I love about Atlanta, is the fact that we have different sections within our city. Places like; Little 5, Cabbage town, Inman Park and Old Fourth Ward. Each of these spots has their own unique flair and energy to them.
There is something for everyone here. We have theater, art galleries, dancing, restaurants and sight seeing. Not to mention that there are some pretty cool spots within an hour from the city too. Whatever your wish or pleasure, let Atlanta surprise you. We will.

Books & Coffee
This past Friday my friend Madison took me to A Capella Books for our Friday friend date. To say I was excited would be an understatement. This book store was super cute, not to mention having all the things!
I picked up The Simarilian and Be Your Own Fairy Tale. The Fairy tale book, pictured above, practically called to my heart across the room. Once I read the introduction I was hooked. How could I not be? I'll be sure to post my reviews as I go along.
The book store was small and comfortable. Books lined the walls and everything was super organized. It wasn't overwhelming at all.
They had an amazing selection of new and used books. One could easily spend a small fortune on fabulous finds there. Madison even picked up a signed book by Ethan Hawk. How cool is that?!
After about an hour running our fingers over bindings, smelling pages and nerding out over favorites, we decided it was time for a snack. As always my girl was right on top of things and found a coffee shop within walking distance.
Our next stop just made our day even better, Proof Bakeshop. Super cute interior with an amazing menu. It was super hard to pick out something to eat.
I ended up ordering this bombtastic grilled cheese and iced coffee. There were no words to describe how good that sandwich was. Two or three types of cheeses, jam and sourdough. Thumbs up!
As I finished my coffee in a jar we spoke about our new books and coming back in two weeks. It was a great day, weather was beautiful and spending it with a good friend makes it that much better.
For this Tuesday in Atlanta I highly recommend trying Proof Bakeshop and grabbing a book from A Capella!
