Sunday night, Instagrammers in Atlanta gathered at The Sundial to once again show their love of their city. It was the location of the #WELOVEATL Instameet. I was very excited! Being 73 floors above downtown Atlanta we were sure to see something amazing. This Instameet drew a huge group of people eager to get the perfect shot.

Saturday, 20 residents of The Stacks Lofts opened their homes to the public for the yearly Lofts & Artists Tour. During this tour, non residents are invited to walk into ones home and view it along with the art of an assigned artist. It’s interesting to see how each home is decorated as well as each lofts unique features.
This year, I went on the historic tour, which gave some very interesting background information of the Fulton Cotton Mills. As we walked from building to building, up and down the stairwells we could really visualize what it was like in the early years of the Cotton Mill. A lot of the original structure was incorporated into the design of the loft homes, making it very unique. The Stacks is a very beautiful place. Next year, be sure to check the tours out.
Last week, Lenox Square Mall hosted Look Book Live. Look Book Live is an interactive trend showcase from the style pros at GQ and Glamour. This exclusive VIP fashion show, featured fall looks from St. John, Nicole Miller, Bloomingdales, Brooks Brothers, and Herve Leger. The use of bright colors and amazing prints this season, will have you looking brilliant this fall!
Last night, Beautiful Textures kicked off its five city tour here in Atlanta at the beautiful Studio No. 7. Beautiful Textures is a texture manageability system that takes natural hair to straight without the use of chemicals. Their Fall in Love With Your Hair tour featured a panel discussion with well known natural hair bloggers, hair demonstrations, product information and samples. The panelist discussed their views on the natural hair movement as well as the challenges they have had transition into the natural world. It was a very nice and informative discussion.

A couple Sundays ago The Historic Oakland Cemetery held its 35th Annual Sunday in the Park. It was a beautiful day in the Atlanta, so my daughter and I headed down to the Victorian inspired street festival to see what it was all about. The first activity that grabbed our attention was a group of ladies from the Atlanta Chapter of the International Old Lacers making lace. Wow! It was amazing to watch. They even gave my daughter a quick lesson. She caught on very quickly and even asked to go back to make some more lace. The entire cemetery was alive with activities for the whole family. There was an artist market, an antique car contest, a Victorian Era costume contest, live music, clowns, high tea, and walking tours. There was a lot going on! It was great family event and I look forward to the next one.
All proceeds from this family-friendly event benefit the Historic Oakland Foundation.

This past Sunday was Atlanta Streets Alive! Yay! During Atlanta Streets Alive over 4 miles of roadway are closed to pedestrians. Sunday’s route took on the Boulevard, North Ave, and Highland. The event encourages thousands of Atlantans to walk, bike, and play in the streets. Along the route are many activities to help you do so. There was bike polo, jumping rope for prizes, and a hula hoop party just to name a few. I always look forward to Atlanta Streets Alive. It’s an awesome way to enjoy your Sunday with your family and friends.
