Friday Fun, Healing Tumeric & Sweats

0comments

Lately I find myself walking in the door after a day at work and immediately putting on my sweats. And I am not sorry about it. But I will say, styling up my lounge wear is definitely something I aim to do. I have included some of my favorite finds right now, and they are all under $50! I also have an obsession with tumeric lattes as of late. I think this time of year makes the tumeric lattes essential, with all the colds, and flu going around, a nice warm, yummy tumeric latte is just what the dr ordered. I also adore Manuka honey for boosting your immune system. This is the one I use. So naturally this yogurt with seeds and manuka honey recipe was a must. I also couldn’t help but share a sneak peek of Greyson’s first birthday party. Stay tuned for more on that. The gorgeous photo was captured by Andrea Patricia.

 


Holiday Style, Hostess Looks

0comments

So I am really embracing the loungewear chic look. It just seems like a win win to me. You get to wear your pajamas and no one thinks twice, and you get to look chic while being super comfortable. With all the eating and indulging that goes on over the holidays, this just seems like a must. And whether you are hosting or a guest, being comfortable while looking fabulous just seems like a no brainer. When you can make this happen for a steal, that’s even better right? These ASOS  silk pajama pants are only $16!! Complete the look with a body suit or fitted black top like this one from J-Crew, and black loafers of course! These are only $31. And some fabulous jewelry and a cocktail ring and you have the complete look. Your welcome.


Holiday Style Tabletop Edition

0comments

I cannot believe as I write this Thanksgiving is only a week away. We are hosting again this year and I am absolutely NOT prepared. Like at all. I suppose I should order my turkey right? Well in light of this I thought I would share some super easy tips to get your Thanksgiving, or holiday tables styled out. Things that you don’t need to spend hours doing, because let’s be honest, who has that kind of time, especially during this time of year. For example I am loving the idea of creating edible place cards. Whether its something like these mini baguettes, or a tiny rosemary plant, miniature pumpkins, or even a sprig of a fresh herb from your garden tucked into the napkin. Simple touches like these can really elevate your tabletop for not only Thanksgiving but Christmas or Hannuka as well. Incorporating a key serving piece like this brass inlay marble tray from Anthropologie can really make your cheese plate or snack platter shine. I love the idea of collecting simple fresh ingredients from your local farmers market and displaying them simply but beautifully like this vegan platter.


A Starry Night Wedding Style

0comments

I have been pretty obsessed with tiny metallic stars for a while now, and this starry night vibe for a wedding is really getting me. I love the delicate nod to the stars, to a magical evening, while still keeping things classic and chic. From details on the veil to a gorgeous star adorned gown, this is such a fabulous wedding style. And don’t forget tiny metallic foil stars on a vellum wrap around the invitations.

For now, here is my little Greyson update.

Cooking Play date

0comments

The other weekend I got together with the adorable Melody of the infamous Sweet and Saucy and the completely addicting @lifeonloma. We both share a love for cooking as well as healthy good food so we decided to plan a cooking date. The husbands hung out and watched the kids while we cooked and visited. We had such a fabulous time and it was such a fun way to get together! We were both so intrigued by the idea of sweet potato toast and decided to try our hand at it. The overall result was fabulous and you literally just put raw thin slices of sweet potato in a toaster on high and voila! Super cool.  I will say if you are planning on making a lot of these however, a 2 slot toaster is not the most efficient. Making it a “make your own toast bar” style was super fun, and great for the kids to get involved as well. Things like tahini and goji berries, roasted red peppers, goat cheese and roasted garlic, or vegan mayo with sliced turkey were fun toppings, not to mention a killer beet salad Melody picked up at Whole Foods. To see our original inspiration check this out on Nutrition Stripped. Melody also whipped up her go to Kale salad inspired by this one from True Foods and it is to die for! Seriously. Of course our cooking date wasn’t complete without a little dessert. I had made these Vanilla Caramel Coconut raw donut holes before, recipe from This Rawsome Vegan Life. They were super easy and so good so we decided to make them together. Of course the being the dessert queen that she is, Melody caramelized the glaze a bit longer to create  crispy caramel like shell that was to die for! I need to try and recreate that this weekend when I make these for Greyson’s first birthday party. Wish me luck!

Mom Monday {first birthday dresses}

As I prepare for Greyson’s first birthday in a few weeks (how is she almost 1 already!?!?!?!), I thought I would share some first birthday dress inspo. Spoiler alert, I even included the dress and crown Greyson will be wearing on her birthday from my absolute fave, Cotton On. The silver sparkles are perfect for the swan princess theme I am going with.

This weekend, indulge in yourself. Try out a crystal beauty treatment like one of these, make yourself a Matcha Latte, and enjoy a bowl of noodles while lounging around in blush pink pants like these from Revolve. Go ahead, you are worth it! It’s so important to stop for a moment and think, what can I do for myself. This is your reminder to try it out this weekend. Happy weekend loves! xoxo
