it wasn’t until a couple of days ago i was made aware that the Atlanta Magazine had awarded LadyFlashback.com the superlative for “Hip Style Blog” in their December issue. when i found out about the possible mention back in November i thought it was just that-a mention. to my surprise i was told that i had actually made the “Best of Atlanta” list.
i am thrilled to get any recognition but a real life print magazine that just celebrated their 50th birthday, even more RAD!
so here is the scanned front of magazine and my spot on the page,
thanks Kareem for helping with the graphic setup!
and since i was so incredibly sick for and around Christmas i wanted to share some classy images from our Classy Christmas VINO party hosted by my roommate and i on December 16. thinking this party is where someone got everyone so so sick, since my friends were also ill a day or so later-opps .!. nonetheless we mingled, nibbled, laughed and got merry with some whites and reds.
got the house all shiny and tidy for the shindig!
my sweety even brought over some balloons!
they gravitated around the light and cast off bits of red, so festive!
myself, roommate and friend Mallory all smiles after a glass or three
one of my bff’s, jamey turned into james this night-classy guy!
Harmony and I hanging out in my bedroom
too many prom dates to choose, went for my two favs!
wearing an EBV [vintage] dress
Corso Como heels
have some wine with that CHEEZZE!
also wanted to snap some photos of the lovely Elizabeth and her eclectic outfit, she had henna tattoos on her hands-too bad i didn’t get a close-up!
i believe this is [mostly] vintage w//F21 heels
always adore her mix of colors, patterns and styles!
hosting potlucks & events seems to be my thing and i usually get carried away making foodies, this time was no different. i made stuffed feta mushrooms and a spinach artichoke fondue recipe i found via the Melting Pot. the mushrooms i free-styled because you can’t really go wrong with bread crumbs, shrooms, feta and seassoning… and the fondue was so easy, and it had everyone coming back for seconds, here it is:
3oz. chopped cooked spinach
3oz. chopped artichoke hearts
1 spoon of minced garlic
8oz. shredded cheddar cheese
5 turns of cracked black pepper
cubed bread- french/rye/pumpernickel
vegetables – coliflower/carrots/celery/broccoli
serves 4 so i multiplied everything x3 i believe, made a ton!
wanted to share my stingy santa gift i went home with from a friends holiday party,
i plan to paint the frame and then hang it someone very visible in my apartment!
well that sums up some of my December happenings but the best is yet to come-
NEW YEARS EVE photos, stay tuned!
