Hello, everyone! Today is a special post because… the official website of Ciao launched on Wednesday and I could not be more excited for them!!

The group of ladies behind Ciao are phenomenal and so sweet to be around. It really felt like I was exploring the day with my besties. Ciao is a travel guide for anyone looking for fun things to do in different cities. Going to all of the different places around my hometown was like a little getaway since I had not been to any of them.

Brunchin’ at Le Sel. This is a modern French bistro with a chic design located in Midtown in the heart of Nashville. This was my first time at here and I immediately fell in love EVERYTHING. From the pink velour couches to all of the wall art. It is just the cutest place.

Omg, and the peach jam stuffed beignets were amazing! If you want something sweet for brunch, I would definitely suggest those with the Avocado toast, OH, and cocktails!


Right around the corner, we head to visit was Caviar & Bananas. The menu covers a lot of territory at this Midtown gourmet cafe-meets-grocery serving everything from espresso drinks and fresh pastries to sandwiches, salads, along with weekend brunch and a wine bar menu made up of small plates. The sleek space features brass accents, a black-and-white color scheme and bright windows for an airy feel.


It’s not really a full day without a little shopping, is it?? I always enjoy going to American Threads. My first time there was at a blogger event last year and I love visiting every time.

This trendy boutique in Edgehill Village is full of boho staples like crochet tops, rompers, vintage-style tees, maxi dresses, booties, bags and more. They carry everything you need to make your festival experience stylish without sending you into debt before you get to your fest.

Lemon Laine, a natural beauty, and wellness shop. The shop is organized by product type instead of brand, a customer-centric setup intended to mimic your own medicine cabinet. Lemon Laine creates custom oil blends from four different bases, each offering a unique skin benefit. $65 gets you one ounce of your own formulation (and complimentary wine from Tavola, too).


Thank you again, Ciao!

Thanks for viewing my blog!
