If you are looking for the best biscuits in Atlanta, look no further than Callie's Hot Little Biscuits. Originally from Charleston, the biscuit shop has now settled on a corner in charming Virginia Highlands. Lucky for me I got a behind the scenes look at Callie's when I shot a biscuit making class a few weeks ago with the Waiting On Martha team. It was so much fun to learn biscuit tips while shooting and of course sampling. Below are some of my favorite shots from the afternoon.
Back with another feature on Style Me Pretty Living today! Ashley Buzzy is an incredible artist in Atlanta who specializes in calligraphy and letterpress. A few months ago I photographed her Atlanta workshop while brushing up on my penmanship. It was so much fun getting to learn from her and practice my hand lettering; however, I will say that Ashley makes it look a lot easier than it actually is, meaning I will be sticking to just photography :) Enjoy some snaps from the workshop and for more information about her upcoming workshops across the country, check out Ashley's website.
Loved getting to photography Britt Bass' Studio Session last month and I'm so happy to have it featured today on Style Me Pretty Living. An all white studio with natural light and beautiful artwork make for really pretty subjects. If you don't know Britt's work, you definitely need to check her out, and if you want to challenge yourself creatively in the very best way, sign up for her next studio session. You won't be disappointed!
Project Sip is back and we are excited to share our newest drink : Sour Mule. With copper mugs being all the rage these days, Jenn and I thought it be fun to create a twist on the classic moscow mule. Grapefruit is winter's saving grace in the fruit department, and we loved adding a sour punch to the gingery taste of the mule. Thank you so much for following this project and being so receptive and supportive. We are thrilled to have this drink featured here on Design*Sponge. So hop on over to Design*Sponge and add this drink to your weekend menu. See previous drinks here here here here and here.
