Ashley Gold Jewelry!


As all of you now know, my new favorite spot to shop is the Cadillac Marketplace. 
...
Well the news is that I have found my favorite shop within the Marketplace!
It's called Ashley Gold, and it just may be my bedazzled paradise. 
...
As Emily and I admired rows and rows of glitz and glam, we got into a great conversation with the owner herself, Ashley
Turns out Ashley has been creating one-of-a-kind jewelry for 22 years, and piloted the show Hardcore Pawn! No wonder I was so in awe of what her shop had to offer! 
When I told her I was all about the bedazzle, she pointed me to the most perfect pair of statement earrings and necklace. 
Cue all the reasons why I'm now obsessed with this brand. 
...
Not only are the earrings absolutely eye-catching, they're light as a feather. 
...
Yes, I am that girl who wore hoops to an amusement park. After a day of riding every roller coaster at Disney World, my piercings were stretched and sore. Ever since then I've only been able to wear super light statement earrings. Which as you can imagine are very difficult to find!
...
Not only does the necklace perfectly compliment the earrings, it also has a convienent magnetic front clasp.
...
I'm also the girl who is always getting her necklace tangled in her hair. Come on, I have A LOT of hair. It's nearly impossible for me to close my necklace clasps without getting a bunch of hair caught in it! Whenever I wear my new necklace, I'll be tangle free!
...
If you're looking for jewelry that is quality, convenient, unique, and makes a statement, then Ashley Gold is the jewelry for you! With over 500 unique pieces to choose from, and her spot-on style suggestions, it's the shopping experience you need to have!

Central Kitchen At Cadillac Square!


Last week we were invited to join our new foodie friends to taste everything that Central Kitchen + Bar in Detroit had to offer.
...
And by everything, we mean EVERYTHING.
We had never seen so much food in one place at the same time before.
We tried everything from scallops, to seafood flatbread, to salmon, to veggie tacos, to fried ice cream.
It was a foodie's dream come true.
...
While their menu was superb, the ambiance historical and beautiful, and the owner absolutely delightful, we were really there to talk about this summer's Cadillac Square installment.
...
If you loved the Winter Market as much as we did, you'll be ecstatic to hear what this season has to offer!
Open now through September at Cadillac Square in the center of Campus Martius Detroit, is the Cadillac Marketplace & Beer Gardens!
Shop tiny houses filled with goods from local artists, makers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses including York Project, Ink Detroit, Le Detroit Macaron, Flamingo Vintage Detroit, Pewabic, and Dale And Blue.
...
And if you love a good beer and Bavarian pretzel, then this is your spot to cool down this summer!
Enjoy German-inspired food provided by Central Kitchen + Bar at the Beer Gardens.
Some items on the menu include pours from Atwater Brewery and Great Lakes Brewing Company, and popcorn, pretzel bites, bratwurst, chicken, chips and guacamole, schnitzel, and gelato.
...
If any of that tastes half as good as what we tried from Central Kitchen's restaurant menu, then you absolutely need to try a few things off the Beer Garden menu!
...
We can't wait to spend our summer shopping and dining Detroit's hottest new hangout!

Giordanos Detroit!



Last week we attended our first "Foodie Gathering" at Giordano's Detroit! It was everything that we dreamt it would be, and more! A long table filled with Detroit's best food bloggers, talk about texture and consistency, taking turns snapping pics of "cheesy pizza pulls", and course upon course of food!
...
First up on the menu were their starters. Artichoke Fritters, Wisconsin Cheese Curds, Chicken Wings, and Mama's Famous Meatballs! I dove into the Fritters and Curds, enjoying the lemon basil aioli sauce and crispy light breading!
...
Next up was their Harvest Green Salads, and Italiano Salad. I tried the Harvest Green, filled with spring greens, dried fruits and walnuts, covered in a balsamic vinaigrette.
...
After that were their Fettuccine Alfredo and Spaghetti entrees! I only took a taste of the Alfredo, hoping to save room for the main attraction: pizza!
...
The aroma that followed was heavenly! They served up Bratwurst Deep Dish, Chicken Sausage Deluxe Deep Dish, Fresh Spinach Deep Dish, and Super Veggie Thin Crust! I tried the Bratwurst and Spinach, and absolutely fell in love with the Spinach! Emily tried the Veggie, and raved about how good it was!
...
Last up was the dessert menu: Brownie Bites and Oversized Cookie Skillets! Emily and I shared a warm Salted Carmel Skillet covered in vanilla ice cream. 
And for those of you who like to enjoy post-dinner drinks, they have some massive insta-worthy drinks to share!
...
We came in for famous stuffed pizza, and left completely stuffed! It was a wonderful experience to jump into the foodie world and meet so many talented local food bloggers! Thank you, Girodano's Detroit for hosting us at our first foodie outing! We'll be coming back for that Veggie Thin Crust and to taste that Tiramisu ;)
