Tavolo: A Taste of Italian in Charlotte!

Tavolo: A family style Italian restaurant in the uptown area of Charlotte, NC. Located at 300 North College Street, Tavolo offers fine Italian dining, wood fired pizzas, wine & cocktails, and more! Enjoy a seat at the full service bar, upstairs, or a traditional table in the downstairs dining area!

I recently had the pleasure of tasting this amazing restaurant for myself while working
 in Charlotte with Kelly of Paper Meets Pearl

We started our trip to Tavolo with a few choice martini cocktails: 
the Fragola: vodka, simple syrup, sour mix, fresh strawberries & basil
the Bacio Del Limone: Prosecco, house made Limoncello, fresh raspberries 


As we enjoyed these delicious house martinis, we decided to add a few appetizers into the mix. 

Carpaccio De Manzo: thinly sliced beef tenderloin topped with sea salt,
 cracked black pepper, olive oil, arugula & asiago! 

Calamari Alla Diavolo: fried squid with roasted & cherry peppers, 
served with marinara. 

After devouring these delicious appetizers, we were ready for our main course! For our entrees, we chose 2 authentic Italian dishes:

Spaghetti and Meatball: spaghetti served with marinara and 
topped with a beef, pork, and veal meatball.

Lasagna Bolagnese: Lasagna layered with beef, Italian sausage, 
ricotta, mozzarella, and marinara

And just when we thought it couldn't get any better, we threw in some dessert to top it off! 

A delicious portion of Strawberry Cheesecake and Tiramisu! 

I must say I was completely blown away by all the deliciousness going on at Tavolo! It's definitely a MUST while in Charlotte and I know I for one can't wait to get back there! 

Until next time!

2 Best Friends + 2 High Schools = GRADUATION

This time 14 YEARS ago, yours truly was preparing for life after graduation. It seems so unreal. I can remember getting our outfits together for graduation pictures and deciding what time we were going to meet because of course we had to go together! We would meet that day at our high school, stand posed for outdoor "casual" photos first, then head to the library for our "formal" shots. I am pretty sure that is the same routine now a days. BUT not for these lovely ladies! Last weekend, I met these two beautiful young ladies, best friends graduating from 2 different high schools. We met at Mepkin Abbey in Monks Corner SC. What an amazing setting as you can see! I had no problem getting laughs from these two and their true personalities came pouring out in each image! They just flowed together so well, I could see why they were best friends! I had so much fun with these young ladies and a HUGE Congrats to them on their graduation!

Aren't they beauties?! What year…

Lipstik Girls!

Bethany had an amazing opportunity to model for Lipstik Girls Clothing 2014 Elisa B. line! From the time she began working with Gooma Models she has wanted to work with this company. Their clothing line for young girls is simply stunning. I was super excited for her to have this opportunity! We chose a downtown / urban style setting for this shoot. I must tell you IT WAS HOT! We were roasting. We kept pushing on and after a few hours, we had finished this amazing shoot. UPDATE: The first image was listed on for Lipstik Girls / Elisa B. clothing. Shreek! You girls truly deserved it!

Exploring Saint Augustine, Florida

This year for my birthday, we decided to take a girls trip down to St Augustine, Florida! I’m a sucker for a historic city and St Augustine definitely fits that description! Founded in 1565 by Spanish explorers, it is the oldest occupied European-established settlement within the continental US. 
There is so much to explore & experience in St Augustine, that we definitely didn’t get to see everything! We will definitely be returning in the future, but until then, here are some of our favorites in St Augustine!

Which brings us to.. Vilano Beach!

This beach was so beautiful and relaxing! The sand in some areas was actually sea shells! Definitely a must stop if you’re into …
