Real Wedding: Erin + Chris

This was such a lovely wedding to be part of. Erin and Chris were a lovely couple and so easy to work with! Set and celebrated in Sarasota, Florida the Powel Crosley estate is a stunning historic home. The two-and-a-half-story Mediterranean mansion was built in the southwest corner of Bradenton on a 60-acre parcel of land on Sarasota Bay adjacent to the John Ringling Estate. Erin, Chris and family celebrated their love over a beautiful Florida sunset, warm and fun toasts and delicious food! Take a look at some of my personal favorites! Congrats again you two!

Recipe: Immunity Shot

I try to juice once every other week but when I don’t have the time to get the nutrients I want from juicing, I make an even faster version for myself to kick off my day! With the flu and cold scare rising, this easy to make immunity shot is my go-to! If you’re feeling a little under the weather, this is a great immune-supporting nutrient shot that can help you start feeling better!

For one single shot:

1 tsp. ground tumeric
1 tsp. of ground ginger
1/2 cup of orange juice, freshly squeezed
1 tbsp. of  honey

Whisk all ingredients together and drink immediately!

Small spaces made simple and green

So I recently re-decorated my living space, and even though it didn’t take too much time to do so, I knew I wanted to open up the walls in my not so spacious living area. You see, you don’t have to have a mansion to make a statement! My coffee table was a complete steal, I only spent $5 bucks believe it or not at a thrift store. After my purchase I painted it with some chalk paint by Annie Sloan, ( which can literally go on anything ) sliced some wooden planks from Home Depot and bam! Easy, bargain, and beautiful! As much as I love faux plants I equally like the real deal so I wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t have tons of real greenery in my own home. If you’re looking to spruce up a small space and don’t have much room to work with, look at the walls. You can hang, nail, place shelves and create an illusion for design at eye level and well, it really opens up the room. Pick an accent corner and have fun with it! Some of my personal favorite go-to stores for decor are: Jo-Anne’s, Marshalls, Wayfair, H&M has awesome affordable pillow cases, Orchard Supply Hardware ( plants galore ), Homegoods, Target and local thrift stores ( pieces to refurbish) Ah, Happy decorating! Take a peek into my living space below!
