For today’s Friday Fun post, the inspiration to-go photo is a vintage tufted chair that is in our bar area at my home. Something about the fabric and the vintage beauty that I just love. This photo of the ocean seems to have the most incredible ombre colors. And I am dying to try this raw carrot cake recipe. It looks so moist and delicious!! Have a great weekend!
I love this Maya Angelou quote so much. Happy Thursday friends!
It is not a secret I am a HUGE fan of the Ferry Building in SF. It just really encompasses everything I love about food. From local, and sustainable, to delicious and offering a wide variety of options, I LOVE. The coolest things about this is that it has inspired spots in Southern California to do the same thing…Right in my own back yard!! So what is Ferry Building Style eating you say? Here are some criteria:
First up we have The OC Mix in Costa Mesa. Fabulous outdoor eating areas, a variety of food as well as gift shops. A beautiful spot.
Next up, The Packing House in Anaheim. Recently opened this new hotspot has everything from a Popsicle bar, to a Grilled Cheese bar. Count me in!
Lastly we have Grand Central Market in downtown LA. This is not a new spot at all, however since it’s recent renovations, it has been receiving a lot of attention including one of Bon Appetit magazine’s Hot New Restaurants in America. Really loving that this style of eating/shopping is spreading. You can truly make a day of it!
Sorry for my silence I am finally back at work after being out sick most of last week. Glad to be back! Today I am sharing with you my favorite tea recipes and ideas. It’s been over 1 year that I gave up coffee (AGAIN)…and so I am a full fledged tea girl now. I really enjoy my tea with milk, and if you are caffeine-free Rooibos is my tea of choice since it pairs so well with milk. If you are avoiding sugar, sweeten your tea with homemade date syrup…Perfection! Cheers friends.
I know I know, it seems like we JUST kissed summer goodbye, but really, it’s time to start thinking holiday cards. To help you out here is some inspiration from our 2013 holiday clients. Also be sure to sign up for our newsletter as it will have a special holiday treat for you very soon!
I think it’s really important to develop family traditions. It gives everyone some consistency in a world that is constantly throwing chaos our way. It also creates lasting memories, and it’s fun. Here are a few of ours we do on a weekly basis. What are your family traditions? I would LOVE to hear. Please leave a comment and share your favorites.
Happy Friday friends! I thought this Oscar Meyer car I spotted on the freeway was pretty humorous so I had to share. Enjoy my Friday picks and have a great weekend!
I thought it would be fun to share a few features we have had recently on some fabulous blogs….check us out!!
These brownies are one of my most favorite desserts I have made lately. The best thing about them is that they are healthy. I used raw Cacao powder which has loads of anti-oxidents and fabulous health properties, they are sweetened with dates and pure maple syrup, and you don’t have to cook them!! Brilliant. Easy, healthy, chocolatey, I am sold. The following recipe is adapted from this original recipe from Plant Powered Kitchen. I am dying to get her book Let them Eat Vegan. I have heard fabulous things.
Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend. I know it’s Tuesday now, but oh well we are doing a Mom “Monday” post today. It’s that time of year again…back to school. I put together some of my must haves for the new school year. First up, a Planet Box lunchbox. This has been on my wish list for a long time now. It’s such a great way to present a healthy fun lunch for your kids and it’s in a format they can get excited about. To go along with that is this Weelicious Lunches cookbook to help you come up with fun lunch ideas.
Love love love this backpack. Too darn cute!
This simple grey outfit has just the right amount of frill. And I have been dying to make Piper a pair of these customized Converse!! What is on your back to school list?
