With winter in the rear-view, it’s a good time to change up stale beauty routines. I like to check out Sephora’s best seller list every few months to see what I’m missing. I have a few of these products at home and I can vouch that they’re pretty awesome. For the full list, click HERE.

Tea Party Pastries

One of my dear friends is hosting a tea party for her daughter’s fifth birthday in a few short weeks and I’m bringing some pastries for the occasion. I totally dig tea parties and luckily so do my two boys (for now).  We have some pretty rad bakeries around town so the plan was to buy an assortment from Bouchon, Model or Sweetie Pies to pair with some preserves and clotted cream.  If I were a better baker I’d make some of these lovely little Berry and Hazelnut Cakes via Little Upside Down Cake.

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 D├ęcor 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.
