Happy Friday + The Perfect Holiday Gift for Grandparents

November 21, 2014   

It's crazy to think the holidays are right around the corner. This year we got a head start and decided to make these canvases from ShutterFly (one for my mom and one for my in-laws). We loved the idea so much we also made one for Andres Sebastian's nursery. Aren't they lovely? They make great presents for grandparents. 

This first picture was taken the day our son was born. It's one of my absolute favorite pictures.  The canvas size is 16x20 and the quality is great and they start as low as $59 bucks. 




Here's the canvas I printed for my mom. I took this picture this summer when we stayed in Marco Island.  

If you're looking for other personalized gift ideas, Shutterfly also launched a new home decor collection with Bob & Cortney Novogratz  (that includes pillows, table runners, quilts and canvas prints).  You can check it out here.

Holiday Style Party + PlayDate with Crocs

November 17, 2014   

What better way to get ready for the holidays than with a little pre-holiday get together. This past weekend I invited a few girlfriends and blogging buddies over for brunch (and a little playdate with the little ones too!) As many of you know, I teamed up with Crocs earlier this year and they were nice enough to have me share the goods with 20 of my closest friends and family--everyone got a pair! 

I've been raving about their shoes because not only are they lightweight, but I love that you don't have to sacrifice style for comfort (especially if you're like me and spend most of your days chasing around a toddler haha). I knew all my stylish mommy friends would enjoy them too. And don't get me started on their kids shoes, they are too cute. Everyone was really impressed with all of their different styles and how comfortable they were. 

We normally have guests take off their shoes at our house (I've written about it before here). So it worked out perfectly, because instead of offering them a pair of flip flops to swap out their outdoor shoes, I had their Crocs waiting for them at the entryway.

Women's Wrap ColorLite Loafer

Even the little ones were ecstatic to try them on. 


Here's a fun little shot of some of our shoes and a toy train hehe.

And now for some decor and food.....



I bought some croissants and an assortment of pastries at Whole Foods along orange juice and mimosas, which I poured inside some adorable glass jars I found at HomeGoods. For the kids, I bought some apple juice boxes. 




I took this picture right before I brought out the smoked salmon rolls (that's what happens when you are hosting and running around) but they are one of my go-to appetizers when I host any event. They are super easy to make (I'm hoping to share the recipe soon). 


These paper plates are from the adorable Oh Joy! for Target holiday collection. The green went perfectly with the Crocs theme. 

Overall we had a great time and our son enjoyed having a little playdate as well. Big thanks toCrocs for hosting my friends and family.

Last week, I had the opportunity to co-host a really cool event with Avon to share a sneak peek of their holiday collection to a group of amazing Miami bloggers and media. It was also the launch of Avon's newest fragrance, Avon Luck for Him and Her. The fragrance smells so delicious with luxurious notes such as red currant and rose petals. Oh and did I mention it's only $30 bucks! 

As some of you know, earlier this year I partnered with Avon to shoot a series of videos. In one of the videos I collaborated with Isabel Lopes, the Executive Director of Creative Fragrance Development at Avon to share how the fragrance came about. We premiered the video for the first time at the event. 

Here are some pictures I thought you might enjoy, as well as the video.
