Welcome to Paisley Petunia…part two!

I find inspiration in pretty pictures, endless possibilities in a bowl of Meyer lemons, the meaning of lifetime devotion in the wagging tails of our 3 rescue dogs, end-of- the-day bliss in a glass of red wine and now, the boundless, soul clutching meaning of life in the faces of my 2 little angels.

It's a happy, creative, joy-full life we've got here in the LA sun. Come play! Bring wine.

The Best $30 To Spend in My Town…Atlanta Edition.

Today we continue to venture east and to the south, to the Big Peach – Atlanta, Georgia. Our favorite Southern girl, Wendy of Decadent Luxe gives us the down home guide:

I was born and raised around Atlanta, Georgia, so I would like to think that I have a pretty good idea of what’s good ’round these parts. The following are my top picks:




My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is wander around the art museum. While regularly $18, admission is just half price after 4pm on Thursdays ($9)! The High Museum of Art is a great place to fly solo, have a girls’ night out or plan a romantic date. With new exhibitions every few months, it’s never boring. The entire museum is open for exploration and everyone gets all dolled up. It’s a lovely experience. http://www.high.org/




As far as fine dining on a budget, my pick is the very chic Aqua Blue. Just outside the city, this casually elegant restaurant is almost a hidden treasure. With award winning global cuisine, the majority of the menu consists of steaks, seafood and sushi. They tend to have specials on appetizers and drinks. I just love the firecracker chicken as my entire meal ($9). You could easily fill up on one appetizer or share something with a friend for under $15 a person. Perfect for ladies’ night, a date or just a relaxing stop for drinks after work. http://aquablueatl.com/ 



Last, but not least…Fado Irish Pub. This beautifully designed pub (and restaurant) is a hotspot for anyone and everyone. The best pint in Atlanta. Great for sporting events and live music. They even have a rooftop patio for lounging! This high energy, yet classic portal to Ireland is definitely something to try on for size. After being a part of this amazing atmosphere, you’ll be hard pressed to find one better. Drinks average around $6 or so. http://www.fadoirishpub.com/atlanta/
