Galentines Day Cocktails & Donuts

If you’ve been a reader of this blog for any period of time, you may know already that I LOVE Galentines Day… aptly named by Leslie Knope of Parks & Rec – a day to love on your ladies celebrated the day before Valentines Day.

How To Slay Valentines Day (Hint: Man Not Required)

Hey there lovely. Yeah you – I’m looking at you, girl! Guess what? It’s almost Valentine’s Day… and no… I’m not here to give you date ideas or make you feel bad for not having a man on this completely made up holiday. I’m here to tell you that you are a badass. You are beautiful. You are awesome. And so are your girlfriends. So you should throw on some lipstick and dress up (or not – a red lip in sweats is just as fab) and grab your ladies and make a cocktail and tell each other how much you love them. Because that’s what GALENTINES is all about.

Friendsgiving Recipe Inspiration

After Thanksgiving recipes-2042-X2

A few years ago, I got the opportunity to style a “friendsgiving” shoot for Lauren with some of my favorite people. This shoot was particularly special, but how you’d expect. Not because the location was the “most amazing spot ever” or because we had professional models who regularly grace magazine pages. And not even because I had some killer DIY’s to contribute or mega sponsors to provide me all my favorite pieces for the tablescape. It was incredible, because well, the food was out of this world. And… it was just, real life. The location was my side yard. The “models” were just all us friends. The decor was simple, beautiful, and TOTALLY attainable by anyone (hello, Target and World Market). The centerpieces were so amazing because we used WHEAT, yes colorful wheat found at the farmer’s market – and cotton, yup, cotton. It was so fall/wintery, and incredible. I loved every bit of it. Oh, and did I mention the FOOD?! Continue Reading…

Spring Brunch Inspiration

Tut tut it looks like Spring! We love planning beautiful wedding receptions, obvi, but we also love hosting in our own home probably just as much. Case in point – our outdoor dinner party tips for Lauren and our Valentine’s Brunch! There is something so special about gathering around a beautifully curated table and sharing a meal with friends, am I right? It’s my favorite. So on this somewhat dreary Monday morning, I thought I’d pull one of out of the archives for you! This is a brunch shoot I put together with Marlene Bernstein – chef extraordinaire and Emily Reiter of Anna Delores Photography.

It’s fun, bright, full of DIYs that you can easily do yourself… and there is a mimosa bar. So there. That’s literally all you need to host your girls in the best way.
