Checking out Columbia

So a couple Saturdays ago my fur baby and I went to Columbia for the day to spend a few hours with my best friend who I haven't seen in two years! She's living in Orlando now and I live in Charleston and we are both so busy with work: it's not quite like the wonderful days when we both lived in Greenville and our biggest worry was our test tomorrow. So this day was a rare treat! However, neither of us know very much about Columbia so it was also sort of an adventure. I posted on Facebook looking for recommendations from friends on places to go and places to eat. One of my friends who lives in Columbia recommended the Vista. That is a super cute little shopping district that definitely wasn't there last time I had spent any time in Columbia! So we parked and started looking around for a restaurant that was open for lunch at 2:30 and had a deck for my fluffy. We ended up eating at the Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom. I had the best calzone that I've ever eaten! However, our servers kept forgetting about us so they gave us our meal free and gave us a free brownie bite dessert. They were out of this world!!! Even though the meal took entirely too long, the food was amazing and totally worth it. After that we walked around the Vista and the State House grounds and took tons of pictures. Overall it was a beautiful and fun day!

Excerpts from Paris Bath and Beauty Book

Ever since I spent a couple weeks in France, I've been obsessed with the French women and their fashion. They're always been at the height of the fashion industry, but they do it so effortlessly! Not that I'm planning to ditch my highly artistic makeup when I feel like doing that, but it's nice to know that it's also super chic to go out with just glowing skin and a bold lip. 

I'm always on the lookout for books about Parisian fashion and beauty routines, and whenever I see one I grab it! I found this little beauty on a quick run into Whole Foods. I was passing by and the giant "Paris" grabbed my attention. I spent about 3 seconds flipping through it and decided it was something I needed in my life. Here are some excerpts from the book for your enjoyment.
