Autumn Sangria Recipe_10

I’m so excited that Autumn is finally in bloom! The summer weather lingered around much longer than usual and it seems to have taken forever to witness the most iconic signal that fall has arrived – the changing of the trees. I just love this time of year when the weather is crisp but not too cold and we get to witness the beauty of the green leaves transforming into beautiful golden hues. Sadly, being in New York City we don’t always get to see a ton of trees outside of Central Park but  I rented an adorable little cottage …

Friendsgiving Table Inspiration

Friends, food and wine. Three things that make me incredibly happy which is why Friendsgiving is a holiday celebration I can totally get behind. Unlike Thanksgiving which usually comes with too much pressure and often an unwelcome dose of family drama, Friendsgiving is typically low-key. It’s really just about celebrating friendship over a delicious meal. If you’re hosting Friendsgiving this year, you’re in luck because I’ve teamed up with Kendall-Jackson to share some inspiration for creating a beautiful tablescape to welcome your guests. I believe that whatever you do you should make it beautiful but I also believe in keeping …

Sade Halloween Costume_2

I’m usually a super last-minute planner when it comes to just about everything. So when Halloween rolls around I usually don’t participate because I can never quite manage to get a good costume together in time.  Last year was an exception. I had a last-minute halloween party which was also a combined birthday party for a good friend, so I had to go and I was forced to get creative and come up with a quick and easy costume that didn’t cost a ton of money. My solution? Sade circa 1985 with her iconic denim on denim look. I’m sure …

How to Make Cold Brew9

By now you’ve probably heard the hype about cold brew coffee. It’s everywhere. Even Starbucks sells it, making cold brew a ubiquitous daily staple that seems to have replaced regular iced coffee for many of us. So what exactly is the deal with cold brew and is it really better? Well, unlike regular coffee which is brewed quickly using hot water, cold brew coffee is steeped in cold water for an extended period of time. Brewing coffee in hot water breaks down and releases all of its acids and oils which often give it a more bitter taste. With the …

If there’s one tiny thing I can do to make my space feel more beautiful it’s to add an arrangement of fresh flowers. My home doesn’t get great natural light but having fresh flowers around always seems to make my space feel brighter! Over the years I’ve styled lots of floral arrangements, from photo shoots for editorials and for my interior design portfolio to my best friends wedding and I’ve picked up lots of tips and tricks along the way. Below are some of my best flower arranging tips plus a tutorial on how I created this beautiful lovely heart …

Watermelon Frose Recipe-1-4

As I’ve gotten older, it’s become harder to spend quality time with my best friends. We all live in different cities now, one is married with children and with our busy lives and careers it’s rare that we’re all together in the same place. Recently my three besties from LA , Chicago and Atlanta were serendipitously in New York at the same time and having them here was an absolute dream!!  Three of us lived together in college and we love each other like sisters so hanging out together again brought back a flood of warm, fuzzy memories from our …
