So this happened late last night in Atlanta! Totally random but so much fun to hang out with Cynthia Bailey which I’m sure you guys recognize from The Real Housewives of Atlanta! She had a meet & greet last night and I went downtown to support her event. That’s when we got to sharing crab cakes and banana pudding and I then lit into her about the fact that she didn’t invite me over to her holiday party with Ebony magazine! She said it was really spontaneous and quick but she profusely apologized and that it was an over site on her part. I gave her the side eye but we laughed and made up over a few more crab cakes!
She asked me if I had checked out the new Neiman Marcus Last Call, which was located not too far from where we were. I said no but I had heard about it. She said, let’s go check it out. So we headed that way. Cynthia shopped till her heart was content. I headed over to the very underwhelming shoe department and got the pie face because chile they didn’t have anything exciting at all, so I was so over it! The Neiman Marcus Last Call up here by me is the TRUTH at Discover Mill. I told her she needs to travel up to that one. Cynthia found all sorts of things, classic jumpsuits, candles, cashmere sweaters, dresses and more. We will circle back around to the candles soon. So afterwards, she got a text from her 14-year old daughter Noelle because she wanted to go to the movies, so she said let me stop home to see what this girl wants to do.
When we got to her newly built home, the first thing I noticed was her closet space on the right hand side of the room. It was huge with all sorts of things inside! I screamed with joy and went right over to the handbags and shoes. Cynthia has a very eclectic since of style! Very beautiful designer gowns were hanging but she also loves hats, scarves, tiaras, just a mixture of everything! She likes to be comfortable and buys what she likes and it doesn’t have to be designer. She showed me a few of her favorite things like her brand new Yves Saint Laurent handbag, new Prada boots and more! The house is three levels and each floor got better and better! I really loved her open floor plan in her kitchen.
Her home reminds me of a very tranquil space. She loves to be at peace and has lots of cubby spaces to sit and read. She told me that she decorated the house herself. I was waiting for Peter to make an appearance but he was upstairs laying down. I think I counted about 30 candles throughout their home, she REALLY loves them and her favorites are Jo Malone scents, I don’t blame her for that one bit, he makes yummy smelling ones! Check it all out inside and again thanks to Cynthia for sharing her personal space with me! I totally forgive you now! Ha! xoxo
