Dining with Daphne … Pane E Vino

We are back … Daphne and I together once again!  Our holiday schedules were a little crazy and so we are excited to be able to get together.    Pane E Vino is one of my favorite spots to grab breakfast or lunch so I was pumped for Daphne to join me because she had never been.  If you don’t know where it is located, it is in Reynolda Village near the rear exit.

I often come for breakfast to meet with people for business and I’m happy to say that they serve Krankie’s coffee, a huge perk to me.  Enough about breakfast… that is for another post.

On Friday ….

Got to try on some accessories and clothing from the Belle Badgley Mischka Line at Dillard’s. It was a very nice treat to be asked to style a dress with their accessories!

On Sunday I drove down to Charlotte to celebrate my mom’s 70th birthday!!  We had brunch at Village Tavern and then a day full of shopping and getting our nails done… wow it was quick but fun!

The Nail Solon Polished... it was super convenient to shopping at South Park :)

Dashing Fave … Bloglovin’

I often get asked  how do I keep up with my favorite blogs?  Easy I use bloglovin‘.   I subscribe to each blog through the site and then I get one email each day reminding me that they are all there waiting for me to read.   This easy to use site lets you create your own feed.  When I am done, I mark all as read.   It couldn’t be any easier or time efficient.




I also think a cool feature that bloglovin’ has is “Find blogs to follow” … there have been some great finds for me through this feature.

Dining With Daphne — Mary’s Gourmet Diner

Daphne and I are back after a little hiatus and our appetites are huge!  We are excited to be reviewing our time at one of Winston-Salem’s favorite spots… Mary’s Gourmet Diner.  My first time at Mary’s was when it was still on Brookstown Avenue.  The restaurant was always packed, I became a fan with the grilled cheese right away.  Fast forward a few years later, the location now on 723 Trade Street has outdoor and indoor seating, eclectic furnishings, and a whole lot of good vibes when you walk through the door.
