My fireplace mantel feels incredibly bare post holidays.  I’ve been on the hunt for some decorating inspiration to make the space feel warm again… but “Christmas clutter” free.  Here is what I found.  Everything is saved for you over at Pinterest on my “the mantel” board.

Happy Thursday everyone!  How beautiful and dreamy are these little VIX girls? I’m feeling very inspired by the beach bohemian vibe of the photograph.  I think this warm and fresh color palette would be fantastic for a small bungalow or cozy beach town apartment.  And, um how many months until summer?

Chevron pattern seems to be the “go to” for styling and accessorizing in home decor these days.  I came across some fun finds to use the look in your home.  I hope you enjoy.

 

P.S.  Can we talk about how great the pink chevron drawer liners are?  If that’s not the perfect Valentines treat for your best friend, I don’t know what is…

My girlfriend hosted a fun family dinner the other night and, while our kids were running around and our husbands were watching the game, we decided that Molly Sims was that one celebrity we would like to really get to know…

Here’s our take: The girl is overwhelming beautiful, has had tremendous success as a model, managed to transition to acting seamlessly all the while appearing grounded and approachable.  She has impeccable manners and poise in an industry that has been known to turn the nicest of people into “divas” overnight.

Molly married her love, Scott Stuber, in Napa Valley last September and shared a day of relaxation and celebration with her beautiful bridesmaids at the Solage Calistoga Spa before the rehearsal dinner.  My friends at Solage were kind enough to give me a sneak peek at the lovely story C Weddings is publishing about it.  The article was written by Gia Canali and it should be hitting newsstands any minute now…

Don’t forget… Only 10 days left to enter our GIVEAWAY with Solage Calistoga & VIX Swimwear.  How fancy… you could be sitting in the same spa Molly Sims enjoyed over her very special wedding weekend.

To enter to win, here’s what you need to do:

Domestic God(ish), Recipes

domestic god(ish) cecyj recipes

My sister and I are borderline obsessed with Humboldt Fog cheese.  It’s always our “go to” appetizer for special occasions or just a night of talking over a bottle of wine.  The texture is so creamy but the flavor is subtle and simple.

I was very excited when I saw a few recipes include Humboldt Fog cheese on the brilliant cheese makers website, Cypress Grove.  I can’t wait to try some of the recipes although, in my opinion, this cheese is really amazing all by itself.

Enjoy.
