    I love the centerpieces that @jadorelesfleurs created for my pre-Thanksgiving gathering! A collection of blooms tightly packed into a bright orange pumpkin 🎃 just screams “fall.” And @bitterandsweet handcrafted mini chocolates for my party favors (with wafer, hazelnut cream, and edible roses) that were such a big hit at my party #sponsored

    Looking for a way to serve amazing food for your Thanksgiving dinner and still spend time with your family? The answer is hiring a personal chef 👩‍🍳 .
I love setting table and decorating. But I would rather have someone take care of the rest so I can have time to hang out with family. So I contacted @rachelannwilson_chef - one of my favorite personal chefs in LA area. Rachel somehow found a way to bring an entire gourmet kitchen into our home. From the beautifully presented charcuterie board to the vegan pudding with gold flakes, all of my guests could only describe the food as nothing less than divine. What a treat to have a professional chef come into our home with everything necessary to prepare a multiple course gourmet meal 🥘 .
A personal chef started as a luxury but now it is cost effective and very affordable.If you need some holiday gift ideas for your beloved ones, how about hiring a personal chef to alleviate their holiday stress?

    I love a good Chardonnay and the ones by @DavisBynumWines #ad are some of the best with beautiful aromas of toasted sesame, marzipan, meyer lemon and baked apple. #davisbynum #wine #RussianRiver @sonomacounty

    Wish this were my daily coffee run outfit 😆😆: beautifully bright-colored embroidered clothes, easily spotted red turbans, silver jewelry,...#sapavietnam #sapahomestay .
Staying in the local people’s houses is the best way to learn more about the daily life of the Northwest people in Viet Nam! You can cook and eat with your host family and generally enjoy the hospitality of Sapa’s mountain people. Make sure you do a thorough research to find a homestay that suits you! Maybe it is not very comfortable but it is a good chance to meet the ethnics, have meals and enjoy specialties with them

An American Traveling to Havana: What You Need to Know

Many travellers want to travel to Cuba to touch the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, taste the Cuban rum and world-class cigars, listen to the infectious street music, learn about the history of tobacco, and simply soak up the country’s 1950’s back-in-time appeal. However what draws people to the tropical Caribbean island of Cuba is much more than beaches and antique 1950’s cars. It is a beautiful country, but more than anything else it is interesting, mysterious, difficult and challenging.

Cuba, unlike its neighbors, has been fractured by Communist rule that makes travelling here frustrating. Independent travel in Cuba, away from cruise ship excursions and guided tours, is not easy, but worth the challenge if you are curious enough to dig deeper. It may test one’s patience; yet, you cannot help but fall in love with Cuba and wishing to eventually go back and uncover more of its charm.

How to Plan a Picture-Perfect Beach Picnic

As heavenly and blissful as they may appear in meticulously filtered Instagram posts, beach picnics have their perils. Sand is inevitable and will find its way into your food. Seagulls are also inevitable. They will crowd around you and will caw for food scraps. But don’t let those environmental hazards stop you! Meals at the beach are easier to accomplish than you think, and they’re so worth it. If you want to have an Instagram-worthy beach picnic that will also be relatively simple to put together, read on.
