1. Real Housewives of Atlanta: Not only did this reality television series inspire my blog title, but it is also one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Sure, some of the fighting is extreme (and probably scripted), but I just cannot get enough of NeNe Leakes or Kim Zolciak. If you're a reality TV addict like me, treat yourself to some personal time with your favorite trashy television show this weekend. If you're totally against reality television and think it kills one million brain cells a minute...you might be right. But, I guarantee you will get a good laugh while watching. RHOA is one of my personal faves because I play a game while watching where I try and guess where the cast is in Atlanta and/or look for myself in the background! Although this series isn't currently on air because they're filming the next season, you can catch one of the stars, Kim Zolciak, tonight on Bravo @ 9:30pm on her spin-off, "Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding."
2. Online Browsing: If you have a shopping addiction, read and repeat the following sentence. Hide the credit cards. Online browsing is similar to online shopping except for one thing: you do not actually purchase the beautiful items you find online. Instead, browse the site and see what is popular/trendy. Get inspired. Maybe create something similar in a DIY project, go shop at a vintage store in midtown, or mix and match some of the clothes you already own to create something brand new! Here are some fabulous things I found while browsing...I did have to give in and buy one item to prepare for my upcoming trip to Spain!

3. Southern Food: Being born and raised in the south comes with the advantages and sometimes weight disadvantages of delicious southern or soul food. Even in the city, there are plenty of places to get some great soul food for a great price. My absolute favorite place is Mary Mac's on Ponce - super cheesy macaroni and cheese, juicy greens, fresh yeast rolls, and perfectly sweetened sweet tea. Treat yourself to some mmm mmm good fried chicken and vegetables this weekend with the ones you love. Checkout some recipes below!
