Boss Babe Brunch Atlanta

Lifestyle, women November 7, 2017


Hey lovelies!  Cigars and Cupcakes is slowly developing into more than just an outlet for my craftiness.  It’s going to develop into a space where I get to define what being feminine is to me.  So, your dear Cupcakes AKA Dr. Ally has been heading around the country throwing women’s empowerment out the window like beads during Marti Gras.  I showered a beautiful, motivated, and powerful group of women with love at my Atlanta Boss Babes Brunch.


We ate in the beautiful Juniper Restaurant in the Hyatt in Midtown.  Being a total downtown girl I felt absolutely at home.


And of course, I added a few flowers and handouts.


Then we had the opportunity to get to know one another…







and laugh.


Of course, it took some genuine superheroes to help me with the logistics, The Superfriends.  They are a group of dynamic ladies that throw events in the ATL area.  If you need something planned you should hit that little link and check them out.


I have a few more cities in mind, so if you live in Boston, New York, or Detroit, get ready for brunch, conversation, and genuine girl magic!


The Best Meal of the Day

Lifestyle August 22, 2016

Brunch is the fanciest of all meals.  It’s for those of us too busy for breakfast but too hungry to wait for lunch.  The staff of the La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla California set up such an amazing spread for my friends and I, just 15 amazing blogger and influencers enjoying a fabulous weekend on the beach.


I worked against my own best interests by noshing on chocolate, bread, and assorted libations, but what’s brunch without a few bad decisions.


The beach has always been a place of balance and reflection in my life, a place where I could focus on getting back to basics.  There is something about being in the presences of all four elements at one time that really serves to ground me.  I could barely even focus on eating while taking in the view.  Ok, seriousness over…


I even made a little beetle friend.  Hey, antenna off my pitaya, my new favorite fruit.  Don’t get me started on my favorite pitaya bowl at Leno Juice Bar, but that’s a convo for another post.

I realized that I like Eggs Benedict.  Look at this little nugget of amazingness.

We even had a private presentation of a La Jolla fashion line Timmithea.  That cute little lady in pink is the fabulous Timmithea Leeds.


So cute!!!


I obsessed over that maxi skirt.  So Audrey! Well C&C readers look forward to more posts of my transcendental weekend at the La Valencia Hotel.  xoxoxo
