Weekend Notes

We have a busy weekend ahead filled with good things and I’m ready to get it started. This afternoon my sister and I are heading into San Francisco for overnight trip to see Lana Del Ray perform, and then catch a lazy breakfast Saturday at this gem. Sunday we’ll be chasing the monkeys around my parent’s property for an egg hunt and brunch prepared by my kick ass mom (French toast, loads of bacon and cheesy hash browns - - thanks in advance mom/grandma).  
A few lovely links for you to check out four your weekend ahead:
Eat: This recipe for hot cross buns.
Drink: Start your egg hunt with a St. Germain Cocktail.
Hope y’all have a good one.

Dominican Beauty

The Dominican Republic holds a very special place in my heart. My husband and I spent our honeymoon there almost 8 years ago and I can still recall with complete clarity, the magic of the island and the warmth of the people who call it home. This beautiful spread in Elle Décor showcases a vacation retreat in DR, conjured by Colombia-born Designer Juan Montoya. I can’t get enough of these photographs and the rich colors, patterns and textures he used for the interiors, which glamorously accent a piece of property that is already luminous all on its own.

Simple homemade soaps for a non DIY-er...

Most people who know me, know that I am NOT a DIY-er. I give loads of respect to the ladies who are however, and they continually inspire me with their endless creativity. That being said, I saw this simple post on handmade Grapefruit Lavender Soap and Coconut Mint Soap and I’m interested in giving the recipes, which appear to be uncomplicated, a try. I’m sure they smell like heaven. If I find a little time between t-ball games and birthdays parties I might give it a try this weekend. Hope you all have a good one.

Nashville Beauty

I found this gorgeous pad in House Beautiful and was hooked on the décor and the location (I’ve wanted to visit Tennessee for the past few years and I just haven’t been able to make it yet, but I will soon). Designer Jeannette Whitson conceived this Nashville abode using lots of rustic materials and a moody palette to create a charming and timeless home with loads of character.
