Traveling To Charlotte, NC

Jun 1, 2021 | Life, Travel

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!  I’ve taken some time off from blogging to take a much needed vacation to Charlotte, NC and to work on getting our house ready for summer!  Thomas and I took a relaxing drive to Charlotte, NC to see my childhood friend and enjoyed spending time with her and her family while taking in this beautiful city.  We stayed at the Hilton Uptown which is in walking distance of all the major restaurants, parks, bars, and beautiful trees, flowers, and shrubs that line the streets and sidewalks.  We enjoyed people watching while drinking delicious gourmet coffee outside the adorable cafe’s, thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful seafood dinner at Eddie V’s, a scrumptious Italian dinner at Luce, plus mimosas on a roof top bar overlooking the city!

Before I get into my blog post, I want to announce and congratulate Carla, the winner of my giveaway and collaboration with SiliDog.  Thank you to all who participated in the survey.  We really appreciated you taking the time to give us positive feedback.

Charlotte at night

The city is fairly quiet during the day but comes to life at night.  The weather was beautiful with a slight breeze.  Not overly crowded.  The lights glisten through the trees and smells of delicious food from the restaurants and food trucks make you hungry!

This is the view walking outside our hotel.  We really enjoyed sitting by the fountains at night and in the morning.

Thomas and I goofing off outside the hotel while waiting for friends to pick us up for breakfast! I was wearing red and black with pink lipstick from MAC called “Cravings” and lipliner from Patrick Ta called “She’s Hard To Get”.  Mascara is from Too Faced “Better Than Sex” in black and that’s about it.  I kept it simple on vacation.

Although a little hard to find, we are so glad we did because Luce was worth it!  The food is incredible, ambiance romantic, prices reasonable, and we left happily full and plump :-).

An eclectic vibe in Noda on 2424 N. Davidson Street, this funky cafe is vibrant with aromas of sweet goodness as soon as you open up the door!

Beautiful Parks

All of a sudden, you are walking down the sidewalks and come to a halt to check out the beautiful flowers, stone pillow statues, mammoth fish stone water fountains, brick paved pathways, and people walking and playing with their dogs!
