Girls Lunch at Cantina 18

Meghan and I recently went out to lunch at Cantina 18 in Cameron Village, and I always love when we can get together so we can chat and relax! I’m a huge fan of all things Mexican food (which has also been one of my pregnancy cravings), and Cantina 18 has also been a favorite of mine since I was in college. One of the things that I really like about Cantina 18 is that they use locally sourced ingredients from North Carolina farms, and I was really excited to try out some of the new dishes on their menu with Meghan. We sipped on some fun mocktails that use fruit from local farms around NC including their seasonal bell pepper blueberry margarita, local blackberry white wine sangria, strawberry margarita, and skinny margarita. For lunch we started out with their queso with pineapple salsa which was to die for, and then we also had the new chickpea masala vegetarian tacos with southwestern slaw, and a ‘make your own salad’ where you can choose your greens, one protein, 4 toppings, and one of our house made dressings. Ours had adobo glazed salmon, goat cheese, corn, cherry tomatoes, black beans, with cilantro lime vinaigrette which was full of flavor. We absolutely loved everything that we sipped on and ate that day, and we can’t wait to go back again soon! Thanks to Jason (pictured below) and the Cantina 18 staff for treating us so well.

For lunch I wore my favorite black maternity dress that I paired with some fun accessories that I picked around Cameron Village. I’m really loving these fun silver bangles and white tassel earrings from Light Years Jewelry, and also these Prada sunglasses from My Eye Dr. This is definitely the perfect outfit to wear as we transition into Fall weather!

Exploring Graylyn

Last week I mentioned that Meghan, Glory, and I took a road trip to Winston-Salem for a girls weekend! We stayed at Graylyn (you can see our room here), and today I wanted to share some pictures of The Manor House which is the main part of Graylyn. Graylyn was built in the 1920’s and was owned by Bowan and Nathalie Gray, and it’s the second largest house in North Carolina behind the Biltmore. It sits on 55 acres and you can really spend all weekend at Graylyn exploring the grounds, the different rooms, taking a long walk, and spending time at the pool.

When we arrived we were given a really detailed tour by one of the butlers, Drew. It was interesting to learn about the history of each room, and to see how differently each room and each guest room is decorated. There’s also an ice cream room (I was in heaven!), a billards room, a lounge and bar area, and they also have a main restaurant where they serve breakfast and dinner each day. It was definitely the perfect place for a relaxing getaway!

Treat Yourself

If you follow me on Instagram and see my Instagram stories, you might notice that I visit Paintbase pretty often. There is truly nothing better than getting pampered and getting a pedicure when you’re pregnant! A new Paintbase location in Cary recently opened, and I was so excited when Maggie asked about coming in for a girls night! This location is a lot bigger than the other 2 locations which was pleasantly surprising, and everyone that worked there was so kind to us.

Meghan, Glory, and I went to Paintbase Cary before we went to Winston-Salem and we all had the signature manicure and pedicures using the Smith & Cult polishes. The Smith & Cult nail polishes are 8-free of harmful chemicals that can be found in other polishes, which is really great especially because I’m being more cautious of the products that I’m using while being pregnant. They also have such gorgeous and fun colors which is an added bonus too. We had such a relaxing and great time chatting and getting pampered, and we can’t wait to go back again soon!
