I usually have some kind of easy and elegant pull-on leather boots in my collection—they’re a staple in my wardrobe and I think a lot of women feel the same. While equestrian styles have a special place in my heart, I also love a good pair of Chelsea boots, too. They’re a bit edgier and […]
For our latest edition of Floral Encyclopedia with the lovely Kristen Caissie of Moon Canyon, we’re celebrating some of the incredible blooms and citrus plants on offer this time of year in Southern California’s flower markets. Featuring warm golden tones and a beautiful diversity of textures and shapes, this arrangement is a reminder that even […]
After the romantic, rustic holiday floral season is over, it can be nice to reset with clean, simple arrangements and neutral tones. I love this display from Salt Lake City florist Sarah Winward because it feels light, fresh, and full of energy. Constructed with white freesia, golden ranunculus, and green and white fittonia leaves in […]
Yesterday we toured the warm, minimalist home of doula and meditation guide Paula Mallis. I also love Paula’s simple, ethereal style so we asked her to participate in our Styled By series as well. Paula instantly gravitated towards the silk, polka-dot wrap dress in the winter collection, which was inspired by one of my favorite vintage […]
I’m excited that Brooklyn-based knitwear designer Lauren Manoogian’s beautifully soft, inspired accessories are now a part of our site. From her squared-off beanies (available in JK stores) to her raw-edged blankets, which can be used as a wrap over or under your favorite coat, Lauren’s pieces all feel a little bit more luxurious and thoughtful […]
As I shared yesterday, our most recent get-together In the Kitchen with The Chalkboard Mag featured decor courtesy of Nickey Kehoe, and menu and instruction from superfood chef Julie Morris. A pioneer in cooking with superfoods, her mission is simple: to share recipes and nutrition tips that make a vibrantly healthy lifestyle both easy to […]
I’ve admired the work of Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe, the amazing team behind Nickey Kehoe, for ages. Some of my favorite designers (with the most incredible eye) their shop is a no-fail favorite for items for home – particularly decorative accessories and tabletop. With this in mind, I loved the idea of creating a […]
We’ve been on a bit of a citrus kick around here, and what better way to celebrate its beautiful flavors than with a get-together that did just that. For the next in our series on seasonal entertaining: a meal inspired by winter’s citrus, set against a backdrop of decor that highlighted the theme.
For Valentine’s Day this year – as I’ve shared before, this is one occasion that we definitely prefer to spend at home – we hosted a small get-together with family and close friends. The evening featured simple, sweet touches for a laid-back gathering that felt like the perfect way to celebrate the holiday.
After a beautiful career, my sister Saree’s most beloved horse Saphi is retiring. Much to my delight –I have been riding Saphi for the last year and have fallen in love as well – she is passing him down to me. And because he is so loved, we wanted to celebrate him with a holiday retirement party worthy of such a special horse.
One of my favorite holiday activities with the little ones is decorating gingerbread houses. And we had so much fun doing so last time with the wonderful Amy Blessing, that we had to do it again this season.
As I shared yesterday, our holiday get-together with The Chalkboard Mag was one characterized by wonderfully comforting food and decor. As always, the lovely Barrett from Valleybrink Road created a meal both memorable and delicious.
With the holidays in full swing, it felt the perfect time for yet another afternoon of great food and company with The Chalkboard Mag. For this installment: a festive and cozy holiday luncheon featuring equally comforting food and decor, courtesy of Valleybrink Road, Bash, Please and Moon Canyon Flowers.
I recently had the distinct pleasure of hosting a beautiful and inspirational evening in support of FEED and their mission to end world hunger. The dinner that accompanied our evening of coming together helped to make it all the more memorable, and came courtesy of the lovely and talented Barrett of Valleybrink Road.
I recently had the pleasure of hosting a wonderful dinner for an equally wonderful cause – an evening of coming together to help end world hunger, and in support of an organization working to do just that.
For Valentine’s Day this year, instead of hosting a dinner, I thought it would be nice to have a small cooking class with a few girlfriends that was all about sweets. Once again, we teamed up with The Chalkboard Mag for the culinary fun, and for this occasion, we were fortunate enough to have Valerie Gordon of Valerie Confections show us how to make several of her delicious recipes.
