Bloom Nation

I’m late to the game on this one. A colleague recently introduced me to Bloom Nation, a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and send unique bouquets handcrafted by local florists across the country. Just enter the zip code of your lucky recipient and you’ll see a curated list of florists in the area. I came across this florist in SF that I will most definitely order from soon (how beautiful are those blooms below?).

Peep’s Paper Products x Goop

So proud of my dear friend Lou and her recent collaboration with Goop. The hand-illustrated Lover’s Card Set makes the perfect gift (even post Valentine’s Day!).

open-uri20170123-81-1a7k0f3

Be sure to check out her custom options as well. Brides-to-be, take note…her custom playing cards would make the perfect addition to any welcome bag.

Stephanie Fishwick

While flipping through the March issue of House Beautiful, I came across custom crest creator, Stephanie Fishwick, and am dying for a custom crest rubber-and-wood stamp. So many amazing options to help spruce up your stationary collection. Brides-to-be: take note of her amazing wedding invitations (see below!).


“Stephanie Fishwick was my best-kept secret but her work is too good not to share. The invitation speaks to the tone of the evening and is the first detail of your wedding a guest will see. Stephanie can find a way to incorporate any unique and special images into a collage like invitation. I would imagine that this heraldic crest could follow a couple and find a way to embroider the pattern onto her bed linens or hand towels later in life.”

– Lauren Santo Domingo for Martha Stewart Weddings

A Day at the Farm

Over MLK weekend, we finally visited the award-winning goat and sheep dairy farm, Tomales Farmstead Creamery. As we hiked up the pastures to visit the two-day old sheep (!), we were immediately transported by the gorgeous West Marin landscape. I highly recommend signing up for one of their guided tours on the first Sunday of each month. Tours include: a hike up to the pastures to learn about their organic pasture management system, a visit to their milking parlor, a visit with the animals in the barn and/ or in the pastures and of course, a cheese tasting!

THIS. SALAD.

I was never a huge Brussels Sprouts fan until I tried Michael Chiarello’s Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Marcona Almonds and Pecorino this past weekend at Bottega in Napa. Mouth watering. Take my word and make this at home (serves 6):

img_5541

For Whole-Citrus Vinaigrette (Juicer Version):

2 lemons, preferably Meyer lemons

1/2 navel orange, or 1 small orange

1 shallot

1 1/2 cups pure olive oil (doesn’t have to be extra virgin)

1 teaspoon sea salt, preferably gray salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

For the vinaigrette: Use a juice extractor to juice the lemons, orange, and shallot using the entire fruit with peel. Pour the juices into a small bowl and gradually whisk in the olive oil in a thin stream to form an emulsion. Season with the salt and pepper. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Whisk again, cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 3 days. Makes about 2 cups.

For the salad:

6 to 12 large eggs, hard cooked (optional)

6 dozen (8 to 9 cups) Brussels sprouts

3 dozen (3/4 cup) Marcona almonds, finely chopped

1/4 cup grated Pecorino-Romano

To sieve the eggs: At Bottega, we push the hard-cooked egg whites through the sieve separately, then sieve the yolks and layer the two separately for each serving. If you want, sieve the whole eggs and forget about separating whites from yolks.

Using a mandolin (an inexpensive $30 version works fine), carefully shave each Brussels sprout holding the stem end. A finger guard with prongs is a good way to keep your knuckles away from the blade. You can also cut off the stem of each B. sprout and use the shredder blade of your food processor. You should have about 9 cups when all of the B. sprouts have been grated. In a large bowl, toss together the shaved Brussels sprouts, sieved eggs, and chopped almonds. Pour on about 3/4 cup of the vinaigrette and toss again. Spoon into chilled small bowls and top with the pecorino. Top with a little more of the vinaigrette.

ENJOY!

Happy Menocal x Paperless Post

Who doesn’t love to collect beautiful stationary? I’ve been a long time admirer of the artist, Happy Menocal and was so excited to see her collaboration with Paperless Post. I can’t wait for my Orleans Family Crest stationary to arrive! Almost makes you want to go write some Thank You notes…;)

Glass Blowing Austin

When my mom and sister were in Austin together over Thanksgiving, they saw the most beautiful votives at Perla’s and tracked down the vendor: Glass Blowing Austin. Lucky for me, Santa brought me one for Christmas. I am absolutely in love with the aqua glass votive– it gives off the most beautiful glow that is just mesmerizing. If you’re in Austin, be sure to check them out or visit them online here.

Rice DK Storage Boxes

Getting organized is probably one of your New Year’s resolutions. On the top of my list: deal with the overflow of toys from Christmas. Luckily, my friend sent over these darling toy storage bins from Rice DK–handmade with love in Madagascar. I am currently eyeing the CircusAirport and Aquarium boxes below. Finally, storage boxes you’ll want to show off!

Marye- Kelley

During my stay at home for the holidays, I’ve been picking up little knick knacks for my home in the cute little town of New Canaan, CT. At The Linen Shop, I came across the cutest wastebaskets, tissue box covers and mail holders by Marye- Kelley. Some favorites below:

Fewer, Better

If you live in Chicago, NYC or SF it’s not too late to pick up one of my favorite gifts to give: the Cuyana leather travel case set. They offer live monogramming in-store (takes about 15 minutes). I’m a huge fan of the pebbled leather cases in stone, ecru, olive and blush.

Veja Sneakers

A friend who has notoriously helped me with my shoe game (thanks, Mer) recently sent me a link to Veja sneakers. I immediately googled and came across a NY Times article titled, “Paris’s Favorite Sneaker Brand (That You Probably Haven’t Heard About)”. Marion Cotillard even named her three favorite brands for French Elle: Chanel, Dior and… Veja. Who knew? Move over, Supergas; there’s a new sneak on the street.

New to Nantucket

The last time I was in Nantucket, I was pregnant with Hank (aka a narcolept). I went from the beach chair to the couch to…my bed. This year I plan on taking full advantage of everything Nantucket has to offer. My rebound year. I’m especially looking forward to checking out what’s new on the Island:

Le Specs

I picked up these fun sunglasses last week by Le Specs. A friend said it best, “they’re the brand you’ve been looking for but maybe haven’t found yet”. Le Specs’ designs are Parisian chic without the steep price tag. They offer both edgy and classic designs and feel incredibly well made (Solange Knowles, Miranda Kerr and Gigi Hadid are fans of the brand). Apparently, they’ve been around since the ’70s…have I been living under a rock?

Eat, Drink, Nap

I can’t wait to get a hold of the new Eat, Drink, Nap | Bringing the House Home book: a guide on how to transport a slice of the Soho House into your home.

“In the 19 years since the first Soho House opened its doors, we’ve learned a bit about what works,” says founder, Nick Jones. “We know how to make people feel at home, how to cook food they love, how to make a room stylish but welcoming, how to throw a party, get the lighting right, mix a cocktail, design a bedroom and build an art collection. We’ve even learned how to grow our own, down at Babington House.”

They simply get it right every time. As I mentioned in my London guide, a visit to any location is a feast for the eyes.

Soothing Moisture Mask

I really wouldn’t know about having “too much sun” lately as SF experienced the coldest July in years (brrr) however, I’m planning ahead for our fam vacation to Nantucket. After a long day at the beach, Avene Soothing Moisture Mask is my go-to for curing dehydrated skin. The best part? It’s made for those lazy days when you don’t feel like putting in any effort. You can leave the mask on as an overnight moisturizer or wipe it off and rub in the extra residue. An added bonus: it won’t break the bank at $26/ bottle! AVE-C05139-main
