Beach Wear – Summer Lookbook 2016

I love these cute ‘kinis and coverups I spotted on the Summer Lookbook for WildFox Swim!  I especially love the pink seashell top that looks fit for a mermaid.  (see third pic down)  I know it’s only January but I’m already dreaming of Summer, sand, and warm tropical breezes!  Check out the lookbook:

Winter Brunch Cocktail Recipe

I love the idea of hosting brunch at home instead of always going out.  Especially during the winter when you may have to wait in a breezy entry way for a table to become available!  I think as far as brunch cocktails go, it’s pretty standard to have bloody marys and mimosas but I also like the idea of having something a little more unique to offer my guests.  This plum-filled cocktail from My Diary of Us fits the bill.  Grab the recipe below:

winter brunch cocktail recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 Plums
    6 Thyme Sprigs
    Juice from one Lemon
    4 Tbsp. Thyme Simple Syrup (1/2 Cup of Sugar, 1/2 Cup of Water, bring to a boil, remove from heat, add thyme sprigs, stir, and let cool. Chill until ready to use.)
    1 Bottle of Prosecco or your favorite bubbly

Directions:

Peel and chop 2 plums.
Muddle the plums with the thyme simple syrup and lemon juice until all of the plum juices have been released. (You can also muddle right in the glass if you prefer to have bits of fruit in your cocktail!)
Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker.
Pour over crushed ice evenly between two glasses.
Top off with prosecco and garnish with extra plum slices and thyme sprigs.
Serve immediately.

Greek Island Home Tour

I love the simplicity of this Greek Island home!  There’s not a lot of “stuff”and that in itself is an impressive feat.  I only dream of having a home that is this uncluttered.  Besides the lack of clutter in this home, I also love that it’s mostly white with small carefully placed pops of turquoise.  The turquoise really stands out and draws your eye to what’s important like a built in shelf or the view outside!  Take the tour:
