    Adorable Asheville

    Written by: Natalie Tellis Robertson   Last weekend, before the chaos of back to school after the holidays, I enjoyed a short getaway with two of my girlfriends to the charming and calming town of Asheville, North Carolina. One of my travel mates, a travel agent who is gifted at planning full experiences, suggested this beautiful city located in western North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, which is known for its “vibrant arts scene and historic architecture.” After a two hour drive from Charlotte, North Carolina, we were welcomed into The Foundry Hotel, a unique modern retreat, “situated in a historic cornerstone known as “The Block,” which put us just a…

    Bohemian Rhapsody Love

    ‘ I’m still trippin’ on Bohemian Rhapsody, the movie, and I saw it a full two months ago.  Can I tell you that I had no idea that Queen sang what they sang until I sat in that movie, in the middle of the theatre, by myself, eating over buttered popcorn? And I am a child of the 80’s.  WTH???? I mean, I knew there was a rock band called Queen, and I knew “We Are the Champions,” and “We Will Rock You,” but I never put the two together, and (evidently mindlessly) watched the Che Weez, (or was it The Molly Ringwalds?), cover them several times. Two months ago,…

    My Hermes Twilly

    For me, the brand Hermes, which began in Paris in 1837, has always been synonymous with inimitable quality and style. Hermes founder,Thierry Hermes, first established the brand as a harness workshop that catered to serving European noblemen, and steadily started producing bags that served purposes for horses and their owners.  It is hard to believe that the first Hermes bag, the Haut a Courroies, which was produced in 1900, and was specially designed for riders to carry their saddles or other paraphernalia, paved the way for the beautifully famous Kelly bag which earned its name in 1930 when then Hollywood actress, Grace Kelly, used it to hide her from the…

    Pueblo Bonito On Sunset Beach Offers Five Star Amenities and Fanstastic Hospitality in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

    Written and Edited By: Natalie Tellis Robertson   I did not think much about the time that I would have on my family vacation this summer, primarily because I was having such a busy spring, working in my office, driving carpools, and attending meetings for the multiple clubs to which I belong.  Luckily my husband took the reigns of vacation planning and co-organized a family and friends vacay for us and our girls. As the time drew closer for us to embark on our trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, friends would inquire about our planned activities in Mexico. No intelligent answers came from me.  I had no idea what…

    Fun Summer Dresses

    Written and Edited By: Natalie Tellis Robertson   In preparation for a recent family trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, I decided to shop for casual, comfortable and fun summer dresses.  I took a little inspiration from a few bloggers that I follow on Instagram: @luxemommy and @loverlygrey and began my search on Nordstrom.com.  I found a few resort worthy dresses there, and some great jumpsuits too.  I despise shorts, as I am the girl who is constantly pulling at her shorts to keep them from “riding up.” Believe it or not all of my Nordstrom dresses were very versatile for a variety of activities, including a camel ride along…

    Color Brought to Life: Remembering the Genius of Kate Spade

    Written and Edited By: Natalie Tellis Robertson   Wit, Whimsy and Fashion Wisdom are the words that come to mind for me when I remember my introduction to the Kate Spade brand.  I choose these words not only because I have a fixation for using alliteration in my writing, but also because they are fitting descriptions of visual genius and imagination brought to life. I remember my first Kate Spade purse. It was cute, compact, and classy (there I go again), a four-sided nylon black purse with a simple white tag and the brand name stitched upon it in black.  I paired this purse with circle skirts and pointed toe…

    OOTD: Graduation Outfit Idea

    Graduation season is upon us, and the design house, Ted Baker, has no shortage of styles to get you well outfitted for the  upcoming celebrations. Ted Baker London plc is a British Luxury clothing retail company founded by Ray Kelvin in 1988. Ray Kelvin is described as a quirky, trendsetting globetrotter. These characteristics, which are reflected in the line, are right up my alley. On Saturday my step daughter graduated from high school, and with a small, but coveted collection of Ted Baker in my wardrobe, I did not have to look far for a fitting and fun ensemble. I love this designer’s dressy fit and flare skirts with pockets…

    OOTD -Denim Chic on a Sunday

    As I prepared to co-host and attend a Zydeco Crawfish Boil in New Orleans that called for denim chic attire, an OOTD (outfit of the day), seemed like a no brainer. While some attendees may have headed to the stores to find an outfit fun enough for the occasion, I decided to shop in my own closet.     I sifted through white jeans, red jeans, skinny jeans and boot cut jeans, but settled on a very comfortable pair of dark blue trouser jeans from Banana Republic.  I initially opted for a simple blue off the shoulder top, but the group of ladies that co-planned the event with me are…
