Social(ly Awkward) Media

So at about 5:20 today I was researching the Charlotte blogging scene for a project at work when I came across The Charlotte Social. This was exactly what i was looking for!  A blogging group that links Charlotte bloggers and the social  media savvy to each other and to local businesses. Now that I had found them I just had to attend the next event, which turned out to start 40 minuets later! Lydia (Boss) was kind enough to let me scoot off a bit early to catch up with this lovely group. We met at NoDa Brewing Co, had a few beers (well I had one. I'm a LIGHTWEIGHT), enjoyed some delicious tacos from the Tin Kitchen truck, and were, ya know, social. Or, I tried to be. I basically tripped all over myself for about 10 min before getting quiet and fumbling with my phone. After getting my beer (NoDahito) and my taco (potato and honey encrusted Halibut) I relaxed a good bit. I met some sweet ladies that I hope to see again and am quite excited about cross promotion possibilities.

This is my slightly terrified/ super awkward face.
Rushing out of work early, sweaty, gross, and not looking my best paid off. I met a super nice group that I look forward to future interactions with, both on and offline!

Want Wednesday

another Seychelles set

I'm finding Myself completely obsessed with yet another pair of Seychelles. This time its the "Turning Point" heel. One part sandal, one part low heel, total perfection. While I have a deep and abiding need for all of the colors, most likely I will break down and purchase myself a pair in green. I just feel like my summer won't be complete with out them. I' m probably being a bit overdramatic. Probably.
Thanks to Kaelah at Little Chief Honey Bee, I'm loveing these Old Navy dresses too. She wore it today on her Blog and looks so cute I'm dying to get one. And they are on sale. Crap. If you yell into my bank acount you can hear an Echo. Because its empty. And big empty things echo... like caves...anyway...

What's making your wallet light this season?

Tea For 2(sday) Honey Ginseng Green

I am a HUGE Fan of The Republic of Tea's Honey Ginseng Green. It's smooth and sweet on its own, even for a sugar fiend like me. I discovered it about 7 years ago working in the Books a Million cafe where we carried it. while the other Republic of tea blends are quite nice, none of them were ones that I felt the need to continue to purchase post employee discount. Unlike most green teas I find it allows for a few extra minuets of steeping (which works well for me as I frequently forget when I have a cup brewing) and doesn't immediately go bitter. If you would like to give it a try, and I highly recommend you do, without the full tin commitment, most Panera Bread shops (at least in Charlotte) carry it as a hot tea option.

While this tea is perfect warm in an adorable tea cup, it also make a delicious iced brew with a dab of honey. I'm carrying a bottle to work tomorrow.

What have you been drinking lately?
