My Holiday Bar Cart & A $300 Target Giveaway!


It took me a while to get my bar cart all decked out for the holidays but I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I'm a big fan of mixing herbal syrups into champagne cocktails so I decided to make an 'aromatic' bar for the season. This design was really simple, I used pretty metallic pieces I picked up with Target, mixed greens, blush grocery store roses and of course plenty of bubbly! Speaking of Target, I'm so excited to be giving away a $300 gift card to Target today to one lucky reader! Read on to see how....

White Christmas Sangria


Ohhhh my favorite time of year ! I can't believe Christmas is next week, ah! I created this White Christmas Sangria for a Glitter Guide post a while back and decided I needed to share it here too. I love a big, mixed drink for a crowd and it's the perfect cocktail to sip while you relax on Christmas day.

Gift Idea For A Natural Beauty Lover


This year I've been stumped with gift ideas for more than one person on my list - in fact I'm pretty behind in my shopping considering Christmas is next week! I did a little thinking while I was in the beauty aisle of Target this week looking for new shampoo and thought it would be so nice to spoil a girlfriend with a gift basket of everyday products she could actually use like body wash, scrub, conditioner etc. When packaged in a pretty basket and tied with a bow my gift came together so nice and I thought I would share a few tips for putting together this type of 'every day gift' basket.

TGIF & A Fresh Cranberry Cocktail !


Wow, what a week! I'm so excited the weekend is upon us and am looking forward to my annual girls holiday party tonight followed by a weekend of holiday shopping and wrapping! There's nothing I love more than coming up with festive cocktails for my favorite time of year -- so when I had the opportunity to create one in collaboration with Absolute's new limited edition Andy Warhol bottle  I was pretty excited.

A Festive Holiday Table


I created this metallic inspired holiday table for Glitter Guide and it was probably one of the easiest tablescapes I've done! I started with my neutral linens which have been on my table since Thanksgiving and added this fun silver garland from Treetopia. I love the neutral palette and sparkly look but wanted to incorporate some natural elements - so I added fresh greens, deep berry carnations and wooden place settings created by Laura Hooper. I love how it turned out and how easy it was. You could do this with a regular green garland too!
