It has been a minute (and a half) since I’ve done an A-List, but I have some fun things to share so I figured it was high time to bring back the whole “girl about town” reputation (wait, that sounded slutty…) and show Atlanta some love. But first…HOW ABOUT THIS WEATHER, HUH? Newsflash: It’s winter. Moving […]

waffle-house1

Maybe it’s because it’s on a Saturday, maybe it’s because social media gets more out of control every year minute, or maybe it’s because I did an 8-minute TV segment on it (in which I got called out for my Tindering), but Valentine’s Day is on steroids AF this year. Not to mention I just […]

2015 Ford Expedition

I’ve always had a sweet spot for Ford Motor Company. It’s such a part of American history (that Model T tho), my dad drives a big ass F-250 (one of his many vehicles), and I once dated this hot AF guy with a sweet, red Focus (he’s totally reading this right now). So when Ford […]

New. Year’s. Eve. Three words that can strike fear into the hearts of even the strongest men and baddest bitches. I’ve had a few traumatic December 31 experiences, but I’ve also had some great ones and I have a feeling this year might be the best yet (more on that at the bottom…). But first, […]

iliza

Well maybe not EVERYTHING, but these 10 random questions come pretty close to uncovering all of Iliza Shlesinger’s deepest secrets, regrets, and freaky fetishes (hint: bacon). You may know the on-the-rise comedian from her widespread bit about girls night/girls hating each other, which I couldn’t relate to because I love my girlfriends more than nachos […]

iphone hack

We’ve all been there–at a music festival, football game, Beyonce concert, porn convention, etc. and because there are LITERALLY A BILLION PEOPLE all trying to text/Facebook/Snapchat/Tinder at the same time, your phone shits the bed. Well actually it’s the provider/signal shitting the bed, but you know you’re blaming your phone like, “OMG I like, can’t […]

high -waisted

If you’ve been to a music festival/outdoor concert recently, you have 100% been exposed to the trend/epidemic sweeping the female nation: High-waisted jorts. Girls of all ages, body types, booty types, and textual orientations have been rocking these denim doozies with crop tops, fake flower crowns, and leather boots in 3,000-degree weather because fashion. At […]

chuice cover phtoos

A while ago, I wrote about Chuice–a ridiculously healthy raw food/drink that completely changed my life and body way back in October 2011. I drank it nearly every day for two years and even froze that ish and brought it to Europe with me in 2012 because there was no way I could go 10 […]

Peace up, A-town down, shawty! What? Sorry. I got excited because it’s been a minute since my last A List and I can’t wait to share some things going down in our glorious city from food to beauty to BALLS. Now that I have your attention… Bring Me Back Something French Krog Street Market, Ponce […]

hotel domestique

Remember when I went on that road trip from Atlanta to NYC with my friend Rob and I was all “OMG it’s going to be amazing,” and you guys were secretly thinking, “OMG that dude is going to kick her out of the car before they hit North Carolina”? Yeah, that one. Well thankfully I […]

How the FACK is it mid-summer? I feel like Snowpocalypse was just like, last week. This has potential to be the best summer ever because: 1) It’s cooler than hot-as-balls years past, but hasn’t rained every day like last year (the WORST). 2) Killer restaurants (and more importantly, patios) continue to open and lure us in. […]

peachtree road race bandit

Remember back when I BANDITED the Georgia Half-Marathon and the Internet exploded with hateful runners who felt my selfie stunt robbed them of their running experiences for the rest of eternity? Well because I’m a terrible person and total narcissist, love to steal, refuse to pay for anything that goes to a good cause, and […]

tribble reese lip sync selfie

My good friend and genetically #blessed male specimen Tribble Reese (you may recognize him from Bravo’s The New Atlanta) is the king of what we like to call……the #LipSyncSelfie. Every time he posts a snippet on Instagram, W+P blogger Trey is jealous, females everywhere get lady boners, and his 98293729847897349 Instagram followers go bananas. Well ol’ Tribbs […]

ashley hesseltine standup

This week, I did standup at one of my favorite comedy clubs in the city, The Atlanta Improv, for open mic night, and it was a packed house as Ron White was stopping by to shut it down after amateur hour. There were 250+ people in attendance, which is the largest crowd I’ve ever performed for, plus I […]

painted pin atlanta 3

Atlanta is POPPIN’ this summer, my friends. (Who still says poppin’ besides Sway from MTV?) So many cool places have opened and many more to come. Here are a couple I’ve visited recently (one in particular I’m freaking out over) and one VERY MAJOR beauty boutique opening this weekend. Also….summer date ideas. The Painted Pin […]

smokebelly

It’s almost the freakin’ weekend, which in Atlanta means time to eat, drink, patio hop, go to a strip club (probably), and pray it doesn’t monsoon. Put this stuff in your Palm Pilot. EAT YOUR FACE OFF Smokebelly BBQ This is the new down-home Southern joint in Buckhead from our dude-bestie Trey and the guys […]

A week ago, a friend posted on Facebook that Jay Z was the Nickelback of rappers. After I recovered from shock, I politely inserted my correction: Obviously, the thread got heated (you can’t just throw around crazy statements about HOVA like that and not get backlash), and I noticed one girl commented, “I can’t stand Jay Z […]

tj miller license

It’s not even the weekend yet and I’m hungover. (Obviously I had a date last night.) Anyway, lots of fun stuff happening in the ol’ ATL, starting tonight with a comedy show, which is good if you like to laugh. Here’s the dealio (who says dealio?): TJ MILLER You may know this comedian from Chelsea […]

hailo cab

Who loves DUIs!? If you just said, “I do!”, then how are you reading this from jail? Anyway, Atlanta now has another awesome, easy way to get around safely with Hailo, an app that brings a cab to you with two taps of your smartphone. Like other transportation apps you may know or use, your […]

gleam

You know those products you discover and wonder, HOW THE HELL DID I EVER LIVE WITHOUT THIS!? This is one of them. Gleam Body Radiance is unlike any beauty product I have ever used. It was developed by superstar makeup artist Melanie Mills, who was the makeup department head for Dancing With the Stars (and won […]

Stache Dash 6

HOLA AMIGOS. (That is “hello friends” for you gringos.) ‘Tis time for one of my favorite holidays because I know I am part Mexican no matter what my mom and skin tone say: CINCO DE MAYO. This glorious excuse for cheese dip consumption, tequila chugging sipping, and questionable decisions whilst wearing sombreros falls on a […]

Hold onto your hamstrings; it’s the giveaway I know many of you have been waiting for. That’s right: Flywheel Sports 5-packs. If you know me, you know I’ve been in a committed relationship with the indoor cycling studio for the last two+ years. Sure, I go on dates with other workouts, but no matter what, this […]

Not only is it Easter weekend, but it’s #FlashbackFriday, so I wanted to grace you guys with this gem of my brother and me. Easter must have also fallen on 4.20 back in 1990 because that bunny is clearly stoned. Before we jump into the weekend agenda, let’s take a look at the… SELFIE OF THE […]
