Visit Beautiful Landmark Vineyards in Sonoma Valley

***Thank you to Landmark Vineyards for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

Summer is here! It’s that magical time of year when being outside feels like a dream. What better way to enjoy a beautiful day outside than with a wine country picnic? A delicious picnic lunch and a glass of wine in a beautiful vineyard setting are one of life’s greatest pleasures. My husband and I celebrated the first week of summer in Sonoma Valley with Landmark Vineyards. You may remember that I featured their wine in some of my events last year (read my review of their wines here). So I was super excited when Landmark Vineyards invited us to visit their winery in Sonoma to taste test a range of their famous Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays.

How to Throw the Best Outdoor Rustic Boho Mother’s Day Brunch

There’s no doubt about it—moms are special. They love us every day, and they never stop worrying about us, no matter how old we get. When we think about all our moms have done for us, devoting just one day a year to show them our appreciation seems insufficient. So the least we can do is create a one-of-a-kind thoughtful day that celebrates how truly incredible they are.

While you can always give her flowers and a cute card or find some chocolate to help celebrate the day, it’s fun to mix things up a bit. Since Mother’s Day is on a Sunday, brunch is a great and simple idea that can really show your mom how much you care. All moms like nothing better than spending time with their family! So this Mother’s Day, skip going out for an overpriced meal on this busy day, and instead host a fabulous brunch at home, the park, or another special location. In this blog I’ve teamed up with some of my favorite vendors to bring you some great ideas for Mother’s Day that will sure impress mom and your guests!

Carlsbad’s Petal-to-Plate Picnic in The Flowers Field

Our family visits the Flowers Fields at Carlsbad Ranch every year, and each visit I always make a mental affirmation to myself I will have a sunset picnic in the fields of flowers one day. And on March 28th, 2019 this dream became my reality when I attended the Carlsbad Flowers Fields’ Petal-to Plate media picnic. This is the experience of a lifetime! Imagine sitting in the middle of 50 acres of giant Ranunculus among new friends, delicious picnic food, floral cocktails and live acoustic. This is the highlight of all my media trips this year.

Where to See Stunning Spring Bloom in LA

In case you haven’t noticed in your social media feeds, Spring has officially “sprung” in LA. There’s still a bit of chill in the air and a few lingering raindrops on the ground, but spring is starting to burst out all around us. All the rain we complained about in January and February has brought us the most amazing spring bloom. It’s time to bust out those sandals, those picnic spreads, and those floral dresses and get ready to smell the flowers.

My inbox has been flooded with questions since I posted on my Instagram pictures taken with wild flowers and almond blossom. So I decided to spill all of my “secret” spring bloom spots in and around LA. In this blog I’m sharing with you my top favorite spots to catch the first glimpse of spring blooms!

Whimsical Pastel Wonderland Themed Valentine Party

Here we are at that time of year again—romance is in the air! You’ve seen stores filled with cards, hearts, chocolate candies, and cuddly little stuffed animals with messages like “Hug Me”, “Be Mine,” or “Let’s Kiss”. It’s the most romantic time of the year and is a big deal for most women. You know me, I’m all about the holidays and especially anything to do with decorating for the holidays!  BUT… As I do a quick online search for Valentine’s Day party ideas, and there are just so many party tables smothered in red and pink. Not that I don’t love red and pink at this time of the year, but I’m on the hunt for something a little less vibrant….but more pastel, fairytale, and whimsical.

So this year I have teamed up with some of my favorite LA vendors to bring you lots of  inspiration to create a beautiful and magical Valentine’s Day decor. Whether you’re celebrating with the girls for the ultimate Galentine’s Day soiree or treating your Valentine to an afternoon tea for two, these romantic Valentine’s Day decorations are sure to make everyone’s hearts swoon.

Fresh Flowers from The Bouqs

I’m such a sucker for fresh flowers! I enjoy walking into a room and seeing a vase of fresh flowers. There is something about a bouquet of fresh cut flowers that can just brighten up my day instantly. I’ve also loved the idea of sending flowers to those close to me for special occasions like a birthday, a baby shower, or any other sort of congratulations. A gorgeous display of hand-picked blooms is one of the easiest ways to make your loved ones smile. Unfortunately, ordering flowers from online companies can be a frustrating process. The flowers might come to the door not as fresh as we’d like them to and they almost never look exactly like the ones displayed on their website. But The Bouqs is different. In this blog I will explain why The Bouqs is my new favorite floral delivery service!
