Reunion style for the bohemian gal

Rachel Zoe Dress, blouse and jeans, Tory Burch tunic and shorts. It’s getting real, friends. My 20th high school reunion is on the calendar and I’ll be attending this summer. This will be a first for me. I’m mostly excited because it means two of the nearest and dearest to my heart will make the trek from New Zealand and New York for the festivities.

Icing cupcakes at Camille Styles and some bubbly tips

I’m thrilled to be featured over at Camille Styles today with some tips on ways to ice a cupcake in three iconic styles. Please do check it out and let me know what you think. It’s my first tutorial and I’m pretty jazzed to do more. Also, it should be noted that this entire project could not have happened without my girlfriend, Melanie. She graciously took the reigns while I photographed each process and our two daughters ran circles around us. Then we rewarded ourselves with disgusting amounts of buttercream and chocolate ganache. There is Read More →

Creative Crush: Light with Brandi from Not Your Average Ordinary

Each Friday, (and I know it’s a Thursday – more on that later) a special blogger friend shares their current Creative Crush – whatever is cause for inspiration at this very moment. This week I’m happy to have the lovely Brandi from Not Your Average Ordinary. I had the great pleasure to meet Brandi at Alt and I can tell you she is sweet, funny and super smart. She’s part artist, writer, chef and physicist. No joke. She’s fascinating and I’m sharing her crush this week. Check out her Pinterest for more stunning photos of Read More →
