FAB HOSTESS - BRUNCH AT HOME, a favorite!


Happy Sunday, love!

After a couple of rainy days here in DC the sun is finally shining again :) I love summer days filled with get togethers, friends, and good times. Any excuse is a good excuse to have fun, don't you think?

A couple of days ago, we got together with one of our favorite couples. Neither of us had plans on a Friday night (#marriage), so we decided to get together and make piña coladas. Because, why not?! A very simple idea turned out to be a lovely gathering with tiki torches, cocktails and hot dogs. After that day I realized how much I used to host at home and how much I miss it! I went back to my old blog posts and found some great advice that I seriously forgot I used to put into practice - how crazy is that? I thought: "Wow, did I really write all that?". Apparently, yes I did! jaja!

Maybe I went through a hostess phase where everything seemed to be pretty easy and obvious. Maybe I've been so busy these days with other projects that I forgot how much I enjoy setting up tables and making cocktails. Well, life is cyclical and my fab hostess spirit is starting to wake up again after a long nap. So, today I wanted to share with you this gem. Maybe you've seen it before, maybe it's your first time. This is actually my most popular post EVER and I really hope you enjoy it as much as I do:

Holiday Decor 2016


Today is snowing! And I'm curled up with a blanket drinking a latte at home. The Holiday spirit is still around and I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures from our Christmas decor this year :)

This was the first time we had a real Christmas tree. It was just darling! It smelled so good and made the room feel cozy and extra beautiful... I miss it already! When I put away the Christmas decor, the room felt so different and empty and now I'm thinking maybe (just maybe!) it's time for a change (!!)

I have a couple of fun projects coming up to help transform our home a little bit - or maybe a lot! I can't wait to get started. So, stay tuned for some new looks this 2017!

Thanks for reading! And Happy New Year!
