Friday Fun {Nice Cream + Hammock Reading}

0comments

Happy Friday friends! Today’s Friday fun includes indulging in this Peach Earl Grey Nice Cream, sipping on a peach bourbon mule and lounging in a hammock reading your favorite book. Pretty heavenly right? Ever since we were in Tulum relaxing in hammocks I have had sort of an obssession with them. I really would love to create a reading nook in the house with a hammock. I mean how perfect right!? You will see my inspiration below as well as my must haves to create your own hammock reading nook. Just click on the images below to shop the post! This hammock is so islandy I love it! Loungy linen pants are a must and to feed my morrocan wedding blanket obsession, this pillow which is such a steel at only $39! I also included the Moon Juice Cookbook that I am dying to get, and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, which I am in the middle of reading right now. Happy Weekend Friends!


Emily’s Baby Shower

0comments

FINALLY! I am so excited to finally show you the gorgeous images from Emily’s baby shower photographed by the amazing Andrea Patricia. When we started talking about the arrival of Emily’s second baby girl and the idea of a shower, Emily really wanted something simple, intimate and cozy. Bingo! We decided to gather her closest friends and family and have a cozy dinner party. Nili Stevens Inspired Living, my co-host and planner extraordinaire made all the delicious food which was amazing! She made a puree of white bean soup topped with crispy prosciutto that we tray passed with cocktails in three ounce petite soup bowls. There was a cheese and charcuterie plate (of course) on fabulous display pieces by Vagabond House.  The menu also included an Arugula Salad with Meyer Lemon Shrub Vinaigrette, Pork Sugo Parpadelle with Hazelnuts and Fresh Herbs and Organic Zucchini Sauté with Chili and Lemon. We offered guests blankets to snuggle out by the fire pit as the sun set. The blankets were placed on the most gorgeous Vagabond House tray and the blankets doubled as favors. We showered Emily with love, friends, and fabulous food. It was a success I must say!

The inspiration to-go photo today is my favorite spot in Laguna Beach. So gorgeous don’t you think!? The pin of the week is this recipe for super simple Peach Wine Slushies. You could also easily make a virgin variation and the kids could enjoy them as well. Perfect for a warm summer evening.

This fabulous bar cart from Society Social is perfect. Vintage seltzer bottles like this one are a great accessory. And let’s not forget Mrs. Lilien’s cocktail swatchbook.

These highball glasses are great, and I love the kitchiness of these mermaid bottle openers. Cheers!
