Fiat 500 by Gucci

Yes, you read correctly. On Sunday, I got to see the new 2012 Fiat 500 by Gucci at the Atlanta Car Show. This car was my absolute favorite hands down and it was so cute. Gucci has partnered up with Fiat to launch the Fiat 500 by Gucci. I must say I was in love at first site. How stylish is that?







Gucci. Gucci. Gucci. I am head over heels in love with Fiat for making this move.
Enjoy!!

Fox Five News Team

I had the pleasure of meeting the Fox Five Team on Sunday. They were great. I even got a chance to sit in and see the Storm Chaser. I have to keep up with the weather here because one day it could be beach weather and the next it's a blizzard. Not that extreme but you get my point. Nowadays the weather is so extreme that it really  is very important to stay aware and be informed about the news.  This bit of information could actually save your life.




How fun is that? To meet the local news anchorman and woman!!
Stay tuned!!  Remember to turn to Fox Five News!

BMW South Atlanta

I recently had the opportunity of working with a wonderful car salesman. I have to say he is the best salesman ever. Guess what PinkStrawbabies, I am not the only one to think so. Who is it? His name is Adrian Avila. He works at BMW South Atlanta. It is sometimes very hard to narrow your choices down when you are in love with a brand as a whole. You want this or that but then you want all of your choices in one car and with in your price range. I met Adrian, the day Atlanta had the tornado like weather. Yeah, I was looking for a car with my mom during a tornado. He was so polite and down to earth .The perfect gentleman. Opening doors, carrying umbrellas and being so PATIENT. You name it Adrian is the man. Anywho, his desk is a testimony of all his hard work and I appreciated his attention to detail and understanding.




He narrowed everything down and helped sort out all the details and we walked out of there in a 2012. No stress or pressure. He handled it.  So if you are in the mind of the new 2012 BMW or any BMW Adrian Avila is the person to see and don't forget to tell him PinkStrawberry sent you.

St. Patties Parade

Hey Strawbabies, the weather is so beautiful lately. This past Saturday, March 17th. I had the pleasure of going to Atlanta's St. Patrick's Day Parade which was held downtown on Peachtree Street. The weather was great. The people I met were really in the St.Patties spirit. Our mayor, Kasim Reed was the parade's Grand Marshall.  They had tons of beautiful floats and I even got to see Kermit, the Frog.

This is a total inspiration for me. Are you wondering who is Sara Blakely. Huh? Whooo? Well duh she is the creator of Spanx.  Recently Forbes magazine revealed that Sara Blakely is the world's youngest female self-made billionaire.  Spanx is an Atlanta, Georgia based hosiery company.  Spanx was founded in 2000.

SUNDIAL RESTAURANT

I had the opportunity to be on top of the world. At times it is great to sit and observe from a far. Like out of the box or something like out of the body. At times you have to step back from the world and wear the other pair of shoes. Show some empathy and understanding. In saying that I have truly been blessed and I love to come and share with you and expose to my strawbabies, things and places through my eyes and views. With that being said,  I went 73 floors in the air to have lunch and view my city from a different view at the Sundial in the Westin. It was a pleasure. I had the pleasure of looking at the hustle and bustle and to enjoy lunch thinking and meditating on my next move.  Think about it when you make power moves sometimes you have to position yourself in a powerful seat and place to let your thoughts and ideas blossom. The sky literally is the limit. As I sat at my table I rotated around the city and envisioned my next move.
