My Favorite Finds of July

I’ve been a bit quiet around here these last few weeks and I’m excited to get back at it with a new series called, “My Favorite Finds”. With our new little abode slowly coming together with decor and furniture (I stress the slowly part, haha) I thought it would be fun to start sharing some of my favorite items we found from the month prior. Hopefully you will find a

How to Make Your Own Reed Diffusers

There’s nothing like walking into your home and having it smell incredible, am I right? I love having a candle or one of our 3 misting oil diffusers going any time we are at home. Problem is that I can only use the candles when I’m home and the water in the misting oil diffusers evaporate within a few hours, plus require electricity to run. That’s why I love a

Rhubarb Rose Gin Sour

This Rhubarb Rose Gin Sour brings a really beautiful and delicious twist to the classic 1940s gin sour cocktail that’s made with gin, lemon juice, and sugar. More often than not, an egg white is added to the cocktail to give it a smooth, frothy consistency, that in my opinion brings this cocktail to the next level! Plus, I love how it looks, right? It’s like the cappuccino for mixed

Serious Inspiration at Kohler Design Center

You will immediately think something is seriously wrong with me, but a beautifully designed kitchen or bathroom makes my heart skip a dozen beats. I don’t know what it is that has me so excited when I see the perfect faucet paired with just the right type of cabinetry or counter tops, but it just happens and I can’t help myself! So, I kid you not when I tell you

Herbed Tomato Galette

4th of July is one of my FAVORITE holidays! I have so many wonderful memories surrounding this yearly celebration that includes time spent with friends and family, cooking up delicious food over a hot barbecue, sticky summer weather, etching wild designs in the air with shimmery sparklers as the sun sets, and a glorious firework show to end the night.   As I get older, the excitement surrounding 4th of

Our New Apartment Has Style!

Okay, it doesn’t exactly have style quite yet. Like barely even close, haha! However, I’m on a mission to change that and the first priority is to actually determine what type of style I want my home to be. The problem with this is that I actually love a lot of different styles, so narrowing it down has been strangely hard! Am I a mid-century modern person or more farmhouse chic?

8 Rosé Wines to Drink This Summer

This Saturday is National Rosé Day – a holiday that is quite possibly one of my top favorites when it comes to fun, quirky holidays. By the way, when did we acquire so many random holidays and what in the world is Tin Can Day (Jan 19th?) I’m all about any excuse to celebrate, but some of these seem a bit overkill, haha. Nonetheless, a holiday that celebrates wine, is

Grapefruit Pink Peppercorn Gin & Tonic

Well, hello there! Can you believe it’s almost June 1st? We are officially in the height of summer and it is HOT outside! Which means that I’m practically living on chilled rosé and summery gin & tonics while relaxing by the pool, grilling on the deck, or working in the gardens. Yeah, I know you may think I’m crazy on that last one, but gardening is so relaxing to me,

Gear up for Grilling Season

Thank you Cameron Hughes for sponsoring this post. Wine and dine your way into summer and raise a toast to everyone’s favorite season! We love summer for the obvious reason – warm sunny days, sun tans, pool parties and mimosas, everything green and blooming… the list is long! However, more than all of those things, I anxiously await summer to get out on the back deck, wine glass in hand,
