I don’t often post about my real life design projects, as most high-profile clients like to preserve their anonymity and keep their private home well under wraps; but every once in a while a special project lands in my lap and I can’t help but be just as excited about the process as the solution and final reveal.
I’ve thrown quite a few parties now and my favorite ones are always the themed- baby showers for my besties complete with bold color stories and fabulous extras that are always custom-made with LOVE. Calling all DIYers, this post is for YOU!
Happy Monday hunnies!!! It’s taken me all of 3 weeks to recover from my last trip and FINALLY feeling like I’m back on West Coast time y’all. Snippets from my 10-day Asia vacay still on my mind as I make summer travel plans to Mexico!~ So excited, can’t hardly wait for fun in the sun. Arriba Arriba!!!
Brunch is easily my FAVE meal of the day. Something about an All-American spread of griddle favorites, steak and pommes frites, veggie omelets, and an assortment of cured meats and cheeses that get my mornings started off right. Add bottomless champeezy, a gaggle of girlfriends and you’ve got an early start to the best day party ever my loves!
It’s no surprise that I’ve had this ongoing love affair with gold since stepping foot into Kelly Wearstler’s office during my college intern days. Every morning met with shiny reflective surfaces of polished gold, burnished gold, rose gold, hammered gold, honed gold, gold leaf, gold nuggets, gold brass, everything gilded and just gleaming with perfection.
I was quite ambivalent about the cuisine in Hong Kong. Where I expected high quality dim sum, luscious barbeque, and full-blown family-style Chinese dinners, I was met with ho-hum varieties to the likes of which I can easily find here in the states.
I can still hear the rhythmic melody of Cantonese locutions drumming in my ears. Horns honk, taxis zip by and throngs of people litter the streets singing the story of their lives from morning to midnight. As soon as we stepped foot off the bus that transported us from Guangzhou to Hong Kong, we were immediately immersed in not only a different country, but an entirely different state of mind.
