I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve spent my entire week so far sick in bed, sick, trying practically everything I could to beat the flu. I woke up this morning feeling a tad bit better, which makes me believe that something (besides the NyQuil) had to have worked! So here is my “Sick Girl Survival Guide”, if you have the flu, I feel your pain and I hope you get better soon <3
There are a couple things that spell SUMMER…
Beach days that turn into bonfire nights
The search for pie recipes to bring to EVERY summer party I attend (whether you like it or not, its happening)
My solution- A pie chart! (hehe. I crack myself up). Here are my top picks for the season:
Summer is the perfect time to give your living space a makeover, especially if you are finding that the heat is driving your family indoors more often than you might like. Creating a Bohemian vibe relaxes a room which helps you maintain style even when summer soirees and travel are keeping you from picking up quite as often as in the colder months. Boho is about adding personality to your space without pretension, and you can do it easily with these 10 steps
It wouldn’t be summer without a pool party, right?! But really, the hardest part of styling a home for a family are bringing in real life portraits and photos while still maintaining a clean aesthetic. I think I found a very cool solution and her name is Nina Nolte, whose realistic acrylic painting capture the full essence of a photography but still maintains a really cool fluid feel.
Burgers say summer to me and this Portobello Peach Burger has completely stolen my heart! I would never think to pair peach and mushroom, but this amazing burger combination has inspired me to conjure an entire menu based on it fruity and savory flavors! Personally, I would drop the idea of fries with this meal and substitute them with these amazing Smoked Paprika Potatoes, and then for a light dessert I’d serve Raspberry and Mango Sorbet topped with berries and creme. Sounds good right?!
When my bestie asked me to be her Matron of Honor, I was thrilled to say the least. Instantly I screamed with joy, and about 10 seconds later, I started planning the Bachelorette Party. I was determined to make this a memorable fling before the ring and here’s a peek as to how it all unfolded.
I’d love to say our fun weekend magically came together with the snap of my fingers, but it didn’t. It took months of prep and careful consideration about what I thought the Bride wanted. So here’s a handful of things I needed in order to create the ultimate Bachelorette Party.
We all want to “look like a million bucks”, but the truth is, less than 7% of the American population can literally pull that off. Those of us in the other 93% can only aspire to owning a closet full of $200 t-shirts and $1600 pumps, but if you really evaluate the kind of money it would take to emulate exactly your favorite celeb, do you really WANT to spend that kind of money on clothing and accessories?
If you’ve visited Oceanside, California 10 (heck even 5) years ago, you haven’t been to Oceanside, California. The culture, local attractions, and most of all, the food have dramatically changed in the last several years. So much so, that these little craft restaurants are taking home some of the most prestigious titles for food and (my husband’s favorite) craft beer. So logically, it’s been a longtime goal of ours to turn Coast Highway into one our favorite past times, The Ultimate Food Crawl.
