The special occasion? My birthday!
I wore a crazy headpiece for the occasion.
With a big poofy skirt and sparkly Manolos!
Because we were going away for the trip (and lovely spa time), my gifty-gifts were small but fun... two kate spade iPhone cases I wanted!
Oh, and delicious vegan truffles that were inhaled asap!
I pulled out my favorite luggage - my dreamy Dooney & Burke heart case and packed it with the essentials - books, pink playing cards, a swim suit, strappy sandals and a floaty mullet skirt.
When we got to Asheville, we found the most gorgeous new bookstore - Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar.
Vintage books, champagne bar and dog-friendly. It really is perfection
The Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa is really amazing. Filled with history, gorgeous furnishings and a world-class spa.
And you can't beat the views...
Asheville is an amazing town for food, especially if you are vegan. We ate at all our favorites including a new addition, Rosetta's Kitchen. The vegan queso is truly delish as was the tempeh reuben that I had.
Did I mention the liquid truffle and the sipping chocolate with rose from French Broad Chocolate Lounge?
It was an amazing few days. Can I go back now???
I had some fancy fingers too - this is Deborah Lippmann's Glitter In The Air over Essie's Borrowed & Blue.
And the best "pretty pretty princess magical unicorn" pink glitter manicure - OPI's Teenage Dream.
I also rocked the messy ballerina bun.
But now I'm back to reality and dealing with boring stuff like car repairs and catching up with work. But the trip isn't a distant memory yet. I'm still lingering in the birthday fun vibes.
Hope you had a happy week too!
