Kyle and Kelly from Chrome Yellow Trading Co have created the perfect combo of chill coffee shop and well curated retail space. The new spot, Chrome Yellow Coffee and Dry Goods, is located in Old Fourth Ward off of Edgewood Ave, and they are serving Stumptown Coffee 7 days a week!
The front coffee shop area has ample seating that includes a few bar spots, a table for a small group, drool worthy plant life, and a minimal aesthetic. The back half of the spaces houses the retail shop where you will find women’s and men’s clothing, along with an assortment of home goods and accessories.
The shop carries some of my favorite brands including Another Feather, Ace and Jig, and Hackwith Design. You will also find plenty of goods for the fashionable dudes in your life. I love their Chrome Yellow Logo Tees and the Always Atlanta pennants and lapel pins.
Prepare yourself for some serious plant envy, and make sure to try a nitro coffee. I’m so excited to have this new spot in the neighborhood, and for what’s to come! Although I’m a bit nervous for my shopping habit. Swing in for coffee…. and leave with a new outfit and some prospector co. candles.
1. I’ve been binge watching a lot of shows while working in the studio, and started You’re the Worst on Hulu Wednesday night. It’s a dark romantic comedy, and I find it HILARIOUS. The show Centers on two toxic, self-destructive people who fall in love and attempt a relationship. The characters are a self involved, and not always great at showing their emotions. I’m also loving the supporting cast. If you like this, you’ll probably like Difficult People, and Catastrophe too. Maybe I like mean humor.
2. In a fantastic attempt at urban renewal, the government of Mexico recently collaborated with a group of local street artists called Germen Crew to paint a 20,000 square meter mural across the facades of 209 homes in a low-income district in Pachuca, Mexico. Would love to see this! – via We the Urban + patternpulp
4. 7 famous women who found success later in life. Can’t lie. It’s hard not to panic about what I’m doing with my life as I get older. Love this post from Besotted that inspires me to keep working away, and that it’s never too late!
5. Becoming Aerosolar, is an exploration into humanity’s environmental impact on the planet, and imagining more sustainable models for the future. Artist Tomas Saraceno created these ethereal, airborne “vehicles” from recycled plastic bags, which are heated by the sun, and then begin to float upwards. WHAT.
I love snacks so when I discovered Nature Box would deliver me tasty wholesome snacks (delivery everything please) I had to try it. My first sample box arrived, and they really hooked me with the Big Island Pineapple. Five months later and I haven’t really had anything I didn’t like, but here are 3 snacks currently on repeat.
1. Big Island Pineapple… Woah. I get these in every box. You will want to hide them from any other members of your household.
2. Peanut Butter Nom Noms – I just got these guys in my August box, and they are mini peanut butter oat cookies. Sounds like a breakfast snack to me.
3. Jalapeno Cashews – These aren’t really that spicy, and have a nice jalapeno flavor. Break these out around 4pm when you start to wonder “will today ever end?”
You pick your frequency – weekly, every two, or once a month. Then you pick if you want 3 or 5 snacks in each box, next load your pantry with all the things you want to try. Each month they introduce new snacks and also add ons if you want more tasty treats certain months. You can use coupon code : share10 for $10 off your first box, or if you comment your email I can send you a link for free snacks to try!
We had the tastiest frozen margaritas at The Mezzanine Hotel while we were in Tulum. They were Thai Basil, bright green, and two for one which made them even more delicious. Here I’m attempting to recreate them at home, and for now keeping it simple with an on the rocks recipe.
2 oz blanco tequila
1 oz fresh lime
handful of Thai basil leaves
splash of club soda
1 oz agave sweetener
1/2 oz St Germain
1. Run a lime wedge around the outer edge of your glass, and press into coarse salt.
2. In a cocktail shaker add Thai Basil leaves and agave syrup to the bottom and muddle.
3. Next add Tequila, a splash of St. Germain, and lime juice. Fill with ice and shake until it’s all mixed up.
4. Pour into your glass, top with a splash of soda and garnish with a sprig of Thai Basil
1. I’m obsessed with Chef’s Table on Netflix . I can’t decide which episode I like best, but Francis Mallmann‘s episode was definitely inspiring. Inspiring like… now I want to go to cook on an open flame in the forest or bury my food in the backyard kinda stuff. I could re watch every episode, and daydream about eating all the food.
3. WKNDLA: beautiful wall hanging from Cindy Hsu Zell that I need in my life.
4. Watch it: Nina Simone Doc on Netflix “What Happened, Miss Simone?” Loved this documentary, and I had no idea she was a classically trained pianist.
5. Podcast: Death, Sex & Money. I’ve been tuning into this podcast for a while now, and its one of my favorites. Some really great episodes with guests like Bill Withers, Jane Fonda, Ellen Burstyn, and plenty of interesting average joes like you and me.
