1. Strawberry Gin Mojitos

    I look for any excuse to drink girly cocktails, so Valentine’s Day will be the perfect opportunity to make one of my favorite recipes, a Strawberry Gin Mojito. Rather than following the norm of serving these in casual stemless barware, I suggest dressing them up in classy wine glasses {similar to mine}. I love them overflowing with strawberries and mint, and then the finishing touch, adding red and white polka dot straws. These cocktails will be a hit at any Valentine’s Day Party or for a girl’s night in! What you need to make your cocktails {serving size 1}: 1.5 oz Gin {I…

  2. Host a Winter Dinner Party

    Entertaining at home is the way to go in these cold winter months, so right now I am embracing a beautiful winter white color scheme for my tablescapes. {I was actually inspired by some of the stunning wedding flowers on my ‘Wedding Details’ Pinterest board.} The first step to creating the look was finding an assortment of romantic winter flowers for the bouquets. My friend Carly, a local to the flower scene, suggested anemones, ranunculus, dusty miller, hydrangea, brunia, and eucalyptus. After a bit of snipping and arranging, three vases were created to run along the center of the table.  Keeping…

  3. Anti-Aging Beauty Products by Meaningful Beauty

    I know I have made it abundantly clear on my Instagram that I just celebrated my 30th birthday, but I haven’t really shared so much on the blog. A lot of people asked me if I was nervous or excited about turning the big 3-0 and to be honest I have been relatively unfazed by it. I am fortunate enough that I am married, have beautiful children, am healthy, have an amazing support system, have a beautiful home, really what more could I ask for, I am beyond blessed. But as I stared at myself in the mirror on my birthday…

  4. New York City Home Workspace

    While it’s been two years since I left my job, between two babies and pregnancies, I really haven’t been able to focus on my blog “full-time” like a lot of bloggers do when they leave work. I decided that for 2015 although I am always going to spend a good amount of time with my babies and entertaining, I really want to create a more consistent work schedule so I can truly pursue my dream of growing my business and taking it to the next level. To get me motivated for all of the work I plan to be doing, I wanted…

  5. Give your Home a Winter Refresh

    For some reason coming home after the Holidays this year was harder than ever. Maybe it was leaving the incredible beach days and happy hour sunsets {snapshot from my instagram here} or maybe it’s the fact that the weather in New York has been unbearable the last few days, but it’s just been down right depressing. I knew I needed a pick-me-up of sorts to get me back on track and in the swing of things, so I decided todo a little sprucing up around the apartment so I could better channel the happy days of spring. If you are…
