Coca-Cola Museum, Atlanta, Ga

Coca-cola is something I grew up drinking and I don’t think it’s an understatement to say most people have at least tried it once in their life. It’s a drink that spans the world; but did you know it was created right here in Atlanta? We took a little trip downtown to the Coca-Cola Museum and I’m going to share part of it with you today!


When you first enter the museum you will be handed a Coke of your choice for free! I got a regular Coca-cola and Kate tried their new Coke Life which is a low-calorie version of the original! We had to say, that’s a pretty cool way to start your museum trip!


Next, you are led into a room full of old Coca-Cola marketing and signage! They had signs dating back to the 1900s (which are my favorite), signs from other countries, and some very neat Coca-Cola memorabilia!

You are then led into a theater where you watch a super cool film about Coke bringing the world together!


After the film, you get to choose many different rooms to view! You can go see the process of how Coca-Cola is made. They have examples of the machines used in the factories that make Coke!


You can take a tour of the secret vault where the Coca-Cola recipe is supposedly kept. Once you enter the vault you learn all about the people who tried to steal the Coca-cola recipe throughout the years.


You learn some interesting facts about the creation of Coke itself! Finally, once you have made it through you can see the actual vault where the recipe is held (or so they say).


Really, the best part of the museum comes at the end… the tasting room! You can taste all sorts of Coca-Cola products from all over the world! Some of our favorite drinks were from Mexico and Europe. Don’t worry if you aren’t very adventurous, they have lots of regular Coke and American drinks there as well!


All in all the Coca-Cola Museum is really a fun day trip and quintessentially Atlanta! If you are ever in the area, make the trip! Have a Coke on me!

Please Respect

Hello lovelies! It’s been a bit since I’ve written. To be honest, I’ve been lacking motivation and time so sometimes these things get pushed to the side. This past weekend I traveled into Atlanta and got to explore around Krog Street tunnel and the market! Both will be on another wandering post, so stay tuned! It was such a nice day outside! Here in Georgia it’s starting to feel a lot like fall and my little heart is ecstatic! The mornings and the evenings have been in the 60s and it warms up during the day. In my last fashion post I talked about how to manage the hot/cold temperatures of the workplace, and for this post I’m taking some of that inspiration!


I was so excited to wear this outfit because it’s really easy, comfortable, and works with several different temperatures! I just got these black jeans from Target for $15! They really are a dream. When it comes to black jeans it’s almost impossible to find any that are truly black, most of the time they are faded. I bought these jeans because the tag said that after washing they would still stay solid black, so I thought I would give them a try. I’m happy to announce that they did stay solid black after washing!! So if you are looking for solid black jeans (that aren’t leggings) check out Target! I rolled these jeans because during the day it was warm, but in the evening when my ankles start to get cold I could just unroll them!


adore this grey striped t-shirt from Aerie! Grey is just the best color, don’t you think?? It goes with everything and it’s just a very flattering color! I tied my chambray shirt around my waist because I knew in the evening my t-shirt just wasn’t going to be warm enough. I have to say that tying shirts around your waist is one thing from the 90s that I’m actually glad came back! It’s easy for girls who get chilly like I do!


I wore a simple statement necklace to dress up my t-shirt. I also wore my favorite red tennis shoes, also from Target. Sometimes when you have a very monochrome outfit adding a pop of color really helps! I love my red tennis shoes for that very purpose!


I had such a fun day walking around the graffiti tunnel of Krog Street! I can’t wait to share it with y’all! Have a super weekend!!

Ps- 20 points goes out to whoever figures out why my post is titled this way! 😉

Sweetwater Creek State Park

Atlanta is a busy place. Everyone seems to be going 24/7 and sometimes it seems hard to slow down. However, right outside the city is a sanctuary perfect for slowing down, Sweetwater Creek State Park.


The park is full of beautiful hiking trails and a large creek that flows near the ruins of an old mill! We started out walking the Red History trail. This trail runs right down the creek and goes to the mill.


The creek has many rapids along the way. There are lots of big rocks scattered around that are perfect for crossing from one side of the creek to the other. We enjoyed sitting on the rocks and watching the beauty of the area (also watching people slip off the rocks and fall into the water! Hah!)

New Manchester Manufacturing Company was a textile mill that burned during the Civil War. The remains are in the park today! You might recognize the exterior from “Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.” Katniss and Gale are out hunting in District 13, and they show the remains of the old mill!

Sweetwater is such a beautiful park and we can’t wait to go explore more in the future!
