Fourth of July Cocktail!

Forth of July Cocktail Recipe
The fourth of July is a few days away and although I’m not hosting anything this year (crashing my friend’s party instead) I wanted to embrace the holiday and create a festive cocktail! So this weekend amongst my many to do’s I found some time to whip this one up. Okay, fine, who am I kidding, I always find time to squeeze in a cocktail or two! It’s all about celebrating life, right? Read More

How To Pretty Up Your Food!

I attended an Elie Tahari event last week and was inspired by their food presentation. I’m a sucker for pretty things and food is no different. So, when I spotted what I thought was a mini ice cream cone only to realize it was actually bruschetta with mozzarella, I was sold! I needed to try this at home!

So, watch on as I show you a few fun ways to pretty up your food just in time for your next fashionable soiree.

Hope you enjoy!

P.S. Thanks for the invite, Jennifer!

Peony Floral Arrangement!

Peony Floral Arrangement
I’m sure it will come as no surprise that I love fresh flowers. It is certainly my guilty pleasure and at least once a week I buy some from my local florist or supermarket. Whatever works! But there’s nothing that I look forward to more than peony season. They are my ultimate favorite and I will jump at any chance to get my hands on some. Read More

Fashionable Picnic + Photography Tips

Picnic Ideas

Last weekend I was at Martha’s Vineyard and the weather was b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l but ever since I’ve been back it’s been so cold and dreary. So, when midweek came around and the weekend weather seemed promising, I immediately decided that a fashionable picnic was in order.

I gathered my picnic basket along with my brand spankin’ new LGG4 phone, which AT&T sent me as part of their 4K Seconds Sweepstakes Celebration {See the amazing details below, including a FREE PHONE} and headed to the park! What better way to spend the afternoon than eating, enjoying the weather, and testing out my new phone. Insert my obsession with photography! Read More

Martha’s Vineyard: One-Year Wedding Anniversary Trip!

Martha's Vineyard Wedding Anniversary
If you follow me on social media, you know that I celebrated my one-year wedding anniversary this weekend. Time surely flies!

My husband planned a surprise trip to Martha’s Vineyard. It was my first time there and I must say it was magical! The picturesque scenery, the bike ride around the island, and the delicious food were just a few of the many wonderful things we saw and did!

Our weekend began by arriving at The Charlotte Inn (highly recommend it), a quaint hotel with impeccable service and an amazing restaurant. If nothing else, I could have sat on our terrace the entire weekend and been content. Outright perfect! Read More

Hosting an Engagement Party!

Hosting an Engagement Party
This past weekend I hosted a surprise, engagement party for my best friend and her fiancé {pronouncing it like it counts, lol!}. I can’t believe just a few weeks ago we sat in my living room, joking, asking all of you to provide your insight on, “how to get a ring.” {See here} Yes, we were joking but I can’t believe it’s now a reality!

Today I’m completely overjoyed to know that two of my favorite people are engaged! So hosting a fashionable soirée in their honor was my pleasure {or more like my obsession}. What can I say, I live for this stuff! Read More
