HOSTING A SEASON OF JOY DINNER WITH MARIMEKKO

We’ve got a chef in the my chef’s kitchen! My dining table just got revamped as Dylana and I hosted a Season of Joy dinner with Marimekko! We brought together color, design and friendship in a way that represented our version of the Season of Joy. A table full of Marimekko homewares and table settings, a delicious meal prepared by one very phenomenal chef, and our beautiful friends to enjoy it all. What a vision of the season indeed. The season flew by, but evenings like this make the present moment stronger than ever. To many more nights like this in my home.

The menu:

Baby Lacinto Kale

Red Wine Braised Short Rib

Banana Pudding

THE MIDNIGHT COUNTDOWN | EXPRESS

It’s almost New Year’s Eve. I know it’s cliche to wear sparkles this time of the year, but it’s hard to not indulge in them. And when I say indulge, I mean really INDULGE. Go nuts. The whole shebang. This month I partnered with Express and I found everything to suits my fancy. A bold-shouldered all over sequined dress. The shining star of my night out with friends. An ode to the 80’s with the oversized shoulders. Glam gold earrings giving me all the reason to tuck my hair behind my ears. A velvet choker that wraps all around twice and touch of sparkle in my clutch reflects the disco ball at the same time. A glass of champagne in my hand the whole night through, because this is the one night that I like to go all out. The bubblier the better, just like the sparkles. Fishnet stockings because a dash of 90’s punk always seems to fit in situations like this.

I try not to get sad and nostalgic over having to say goodbye to 2016. It was truly an amazing year, full of surprises that made the year surpass all expectations of what a good year could be. For that reason, I want to go out with a bang, and ready for more fresh surprises in 2017. I’m ready for it, are you???

Thank you Express for partnering with me on this post.

SHOPPING BETTER THIS HOLIDAY WITH MATCHESFASHION.COM

matches-fashion-gifting-hub-1
Right now I’m totally scrambling to find the perfect last-minute holiday gifts for friends and family. When I shop, I dig to find something unique. Always luxurious. And it doesn’t have to be anything big, though yes, Santa knows my friends will scream over this Gucci mink coat. The perfect gift can be small, but absolutely perfect like the Loewe coin purse. Right now MATCHESFASHION.COM has the best gift guide...every item comes with a very special packaging so that you can order it right to your girlfriend’s front doorstep and it’s already picture perfect under her tree. They’ve even made categorizing and shopping for the holidays so much easier.
You can shop either by Price, Style, or Category. It’s honestly so nice to shop by price so that you can still find the perfect designer piece in your price range.
I love the “Small but Perfect” gift guide on MATCHESFASHION.COM because they’re amazing and unique stocking stuffers. From the leather cell case to a chic card holder.
Then, for something extra luxurious and a bit of a splurge, I go to the “Grand Gestures” gift guide. It is literally every woman’s dream selection. These are by far timeless pieces that your best friend will keep forever…like this Fendi shearling shoulder bag.
But we can’t forget our lovers. Trying to find something for HIM as well. Men are so particular.
