We Spy: The Perfect Housewarming Gifts!

housewarming gifts House warming gifts for great friends are often so hard to buy! Do you get them wine (been there, done that), flowers (but they die!) or perhaps a cake plate (do they already have one?!)? Well have no fear, the lovely blog Mimosa Lane rounded up some of  the favorite gifts she received after a recent move!  We spied our chic and versatile acrylic tray - whether you use it to entertain, hold mail or your favorite beauty essentials it’s a classy home organizer. Monogrammed with initials or even a new home address is a special way to celebrate your friends new adventure.

Back in {Timeless} Black!

back in black With Fall at our front door, we are thinking of autumnal style and all it has to offer.
Black is most certainly a staple when it comes to fashion (hello little black dress,) but by no means is it B-O-R-I-N-G! Don’t get us wrong, bright hues are still on high rotation this season, but something about black has us coming back for more and more! We just had to share our love for the noir hue.

Tumblr For Ya!

Their Tumblr features a consistent stream of fashion eye candy, dreamy home decor, luscious looking food and plenty of inspirational quotes we just can’t get enough of! It’s our go to Tumblr for all things feminine, fresh and chic!


TOAST TO TYPE: Rum Cider Punch Recipe

Although glimpses of Fall are slowly starting to show, temperatures are not quite ready to dip to sweater weather just yet (it was 100+ in LA last weekend, phew!). But if, like us, you can’t wait to enjoy the flavors of Fall, then we have the drink to wet-your-whistle with!

The Rum Cider Punch from Versus From My Kitchen combines the complex spices found in a traditional hot apple cider with the cool and refreshing juices of summer cocktail recipes. It’s the perfect transition from one season to the next. Combining chilled apple cider, thyme, tart lemon and a bit of fizz, this is a great libation to imbibe on the front porch or with the windows thrown open with a cool breeze blowing through!

Trés Chic Monogram Moment

Oh my Macaron! Today we’re rather smitten with this stunning spread of desserts from a Mid Summer Nights dream themed wedding! Forgoing a traditional wedding cake for  bite-size nibbles is a fun way to offer your guests a variety of sweet treats. They’re also perfect for snagging in between twirls around on the dance floor!

But obviously we do think macrons, featuring the bride and groom’s initials take the…cake. {ahem, pun intended}. It’s an ingenious idea we may just have to steal! We love that you could also apply it to many other occasions. Birthday parties, bridal or baby showers – they’d even make a fabulous house warming gift. The rest of this beautiful wedding is just as delicious looking as the macarons, it’s the perfect pastel eye candy we need this Monday!
