Top 5 Beach House Roundup

Today I rounded up my favorite 5 beach houses!  They’re located all over the world and in some of the most beautiful and tropical places.  These home tours are not to be missed!  Check ’em out:

Beach House in Brazil

What I loved most about this beach house was the pops of turquoise throughout, the fact that it’s surrounded by palm trees, oh and the gate in the backyard that leads to the beach! Click the pic to take the tour

Beach House in Australia

This beach house in Australia has a more serene and calming decor. I love the soothing aqua and natural wood elements in this home. Click pic to see more!

Beach House in Indonesia

The best thing about this beach house is the backyard with a stunning pool and the most amazing outdoor shower I’ve ever seen. Click pic to check it out!

Beach House in Uruguay

You can’t tell from the picture but my favorite thing about this beach house is its size! This beach house is teeny tiny, proving that you don’t need much square footage just great views! Click pic to take the tour.

Beach House on Summer Island

The decor in this beach house was my favorite! I mean just take a look at this dresser. Click pic to take the full tour!

Tour this Beach Home in the Bahamas

Take a tour of India Hicks’ beach home in the Bahamas!  It’s filled with history and antiques and I love it all.  From the tropical greenery growing outside to the coastal fish prints inside, this home has captured my heart.  Also did I mention they have a pet parrot named Jenga?  You’ve got to take a look:

Tropical Brazilian Home Tour

There are some homes when you first walk, you know are going to be special.  Needless to say, that this Brazilian home belonging to none other than the Anderson Cooper is one of those homes!  My heart skipped a beat from the very first time I laid eyes on it.   Weathered kitchen cabinets, exposed beams, and pops of blues and turquoise are just a few of the things that had me “oooh-ing” and “awing”.  Enjoy the tour >

Hawaii Beach Wedding

Last month I shared a Winter Beach Wedding with you, which I loved!  It was filled with wintery whites and coastal blues.  It was a simpler kind of wedding which is completely different from this one I’m about to show you.  This Hawaii beach wedding has a lot more glitz + glam.  Imagine lights strung from palm trees, oodles of sequins and let’s not forget the glitter!  Oh and you can’t beat that amazing Hawaiian back drop.  Take a look:

New Year. New Cocktails. 5 Cocktail Recipes To Try In 2017

I’m a firm believer of trying new things, especially when it comes to cocktails.  I think it’s great that some of my friends have a “house” wine or drink.  Something that they in essence, always have on tap at their house and friends get to know.  However with a new year starting, I also think it’s good to mix things up a bit!  Expand your cocktail horizon.  These 5 cocktail recipes only deviate slightly from the norm, adding a new twist to the same old drink recipes we all know.
