1. La Marca Prosecco Popsicles

    For my latest summer soiree, I had been searching for new and original ways to wow guests, so I partnered with Gilt City and La Marca Prosecco to create a totally cool {pun intended} take on a summer cocktail, a fruity Prosecco popsicle {to be consumed by guests over 21 of course!}. I wanted to keep things simple by sticking to 2 ingredients, La Marca Prosecco and fresh watermelon.

Next I took my popsicle molds and filled a third with the blended mixture…

    The Bellini’s & Blooms Event marks my first official Blogger Party in Miami.

  4. My Neiman Marcus Travel Essential & Details of my Tuscany Vaca

    Ever since I shared a glimpse into my Tuscany vaca on my instagram, you guys had such good feedback, so I had to share a bit more detail on the blog! A bit of background on the trip… my husband and I never took a honeymoon because I got pregnant precisely one week after our wedding (no joke!).

This summer we celebrated our four year wedding anniversary, the kids were three and a half and two, and with a small lull in work, we…
