Romantic Garden Wedding Style

0comments

Love being inspired by my creative and beautiful brides. This one is for a very special custom project I am working on right now for a very romantic but modern bride. This color palette and visuals perfectly matches her wedding style. Think delicate florals mixed with lush greenery and the tiniest butterfly. Romantic garden at it’s finest.

Mom Monday {Homemade Baby Food}

0comments

With 2 kids, I had to get a bit more intentional about making Greyson’s food ahead of time, in bulk. I have been making it every weekend and then freezing it. This way she has a variety of foods and I am not cooking every day. It’s been working great. The sprouted rice is so versatile, I have made it as breakfast cereal by heating it up with breast milk, cinnamon and banana, or I mix it with the red peppers. Thats the other fun thing is that you can mix and match different flavors together and get baby used to different tastes and textures. Greyson isn’t as easy as Piper, with eating. She seems a bit more picky, but I just keep trying. At first she wouldn’t eat anything with banana, but finally one day she just devoured the banana oatmeal.  What are your favorite baby purées?

Friday Fun {rosé + nordstrom anniversary sale}

0comments

The time has finally come, public access to one of my favorite sales of the year, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I have selected my favorites below including this travel shawl and this Frye tote!  that I need asap.  Now if all that shopping has made you hungry I have a treat for you. I made these eggplant bahn mi sandwiches last night and my mind was literally blown! The hoisin glazed eggplant between crisp sesame cucumber slices and pickled carrots, avocado and fresh herbs and the punch from the siracha mayo…seriously do yourself a favor and make this one asap. Sipping on Rosé all day is a fabulous way to spend the summer but I am definitely curious about this twist on the trend. Rosé lillet cocktails! Yum. Take advantage of the warm summer nights and get yourselves and your loved ones outside for an outdoor movie night!

Wish I was {Seyshelles and Sushi}

0comments

Always on the hunt for a fabulous destination, North Island, a private island resort in the Seyshelle Islands, is my next MUST VISIT. The 2500 square foot private villas come with a private stretch of beach, a butler and a private chef. Yes, yes and yes. The resort offers private picnics on islands, in the forest, wherever you wish. And the plates full of fresh sushi look insanely good. I am definitely adding this to my bucket list. Sigh…Don’t forget to shop the “wearing this” portion of the post by clicking on the items you want to shop.

Soft Peach and Warm Greys

I was putting together some inspirations for a bride, and I am truly smitten with this color palette. Think soft peaches layered tones of warm greys. Soft, romantic, a modern classic simplicity…aahhh so excited for this one you guys. I can envision a soft color wash with layers of warm grey letterpress and maybe even blind letterpress details…smitten.
