GODIVA™ Double Chocolate Raspberry Parfait

Are you familiar with GODIVA Belgium 1926? A 90 year old Chocolate brand founded by a Belgian family whose passion for Chocolate drove them to greatness. Might I add really expensive chocolate, reasons why people think I’m rich I have an expensive taste no literally. You would think it was their family name but it’s not I guess Lady Godiva was a legend so they named the company in her honor. One day I’ll google her.

Can you believe GODIVA was appointed an official chocolatier to the Royal Court of Belgium? Make a long story short high-quality Belgian chocolate. I told you expensive. (Assorted Chocolate Gold Gift Box Set $78) Today GODIVA has over 600 owned Boutiques in over 100 countries.

Old Lady Gang A Southern Eatery in Atlanta, GA #KandiBurruss

Real Housewives of Atlanta Kandi Burruss – Tucker and husband Todd Tucker came together on an idea to share some home Southern recipes. I love their family traditional recipes and how each member of the family has their own recipe on the menu.

 

The cornbread muffins with Kandi’s homemade honey icing and syrup. I tried to get the recipes but you know how that goes. I walked away with no recipe.

I ordered the Old Lady Gang House Salad. This chicken is on point I need the recipe for that too. It was really good and my waiter made sure I was good and if he was too busy I made sure I asked with no problem.

Some of the credit goes to Aunt Joyce mother of Kandi, Aunt Bertha, and Aunt Nora who is the “Old Lady Gang” are the ones who taught Kandi to throw down in the kitchen. The Old Lady Gang is located right in the city’s Historic + Art District which is the Castleberry Hill neighborhood in Atlanta, GA

When you in Atlanta, GA make sure you stop by and show love. It’s not that intimidating you might be nervous for a bit but then once you warm up everyone is so laid back and respectful. All photos are my own.

A Getaway to Oak N Spruce Resort, Lee MA

A weekend getaway is always needed as part of self-care.

img_1431

What do you need to get your stay started right? A peace of mind, being able to hear your own thoughts and not being bound to those you can’t break free from. Deuces I’m out.

img_1428

When I plan and do things I try to make it kid-friendly so if I don’t have no adult company or anyone to hang out with it benefits a child at the same time. Family 1st I have a niece and a nephew. The girl you see is not my niece but she likes to come with me because it’s fun.

This resort has 1 outdoor pool and 2 indoor pools plus a jacuzzi and a sauna with showers in the restrooms.

When I come here for a day pass I don’t always do what I intend to do because I either lack motivation or I have the wrong company. Ughh.. I just want to workout.

Here is my favorite thing to do when I come here. Wash clothes the washers & dryers are complimentary that means it’s free and it’s a 24 hour “Laundromat”

I barely used the back porch I got a smoking room upon availability. When I walked into the room it smelled like cigarettes and I don’t smoke at all I thought I smelled like cigarettes just by being in a smoking room.

If we don’t feel like leaving the property there’s a Subway and Pizzeria on sight.

Say you don’t want to eat out the whole time you are here the grocery store is about 5 mins up the street. This room has a kitchenette and the pots and pans are provided down to the silverware it’s a one-bedroom more of a studio style.

This room is always so comfortable I slept with all 5 pillows and that makes it that more relaxing. Sometimes it feels like you are sleeping on clouds especially if you know how to getaway from the noise and not be available to every call. The sofas also pull out beds.

I wanted to get some work done right from the bed, man it felt so good to lay in bed with the laptop on my knee comfortable on top of 5 pillows I’m thinking wow is this what working from home feel life? sign me up I want to work from home. When I’m home my laptop is either on a stand or I’m at the table I don’t have the luxury of laying in bed on my laptop.

Western Massachusetts is a different experience people come to this resort from all over the states it’s a timeshare resort soon it’ll be open to the public and I’ll close out my account and become regular like everyone else. I’m lucky to drive only a half an hour away and there’s a premium outlet shopping plaza 7 mins away from the resort. Everything is convenient and 2 steps away if I could live here trust me I would. Maybe in a Presidental Suite, not this particular unit. I swear if I became homeless I would just need a place to sleep.
