Pink roses for Pink Saturday

Tomorrow I get to marry the man of my dreams. I've never admitted this before, but growing up I daydreamed of him. I just never knew his face. But the moment we started talking, I knew we would never stop. I'm so lucky.

I'm taking a few days to myself, family and friends to celebrate. Enjoy your week! xx

Feeling like it's really real as we checked into The Fairmont on Sunday.

Floral Friday.

I've got garden roses in cream & blush with touches of hydrangeas on my mind. Love.

This face

Weekends were made for fun and this one fell nothing short of that. Between sleeping in on Saturday morning to devouring the most incredible paella I've ever had (and I lived in Spain) to spending some time in the glass studio with my love I couldn't ask for anything more. 

Enjoyed the best paella I've ever had (and I lived in Spain); one I'm determined to recreate.

Spent some time in a glass studio working on a special project.

Celebrating in the city with my best girls

On Saturday night, my favorite girls took me out for a night on the town for a bridal shower/bachelorette party. The night began with bubbles at The Battery followed by the most delicious dinner at Hakkasaan. There's nothing better in this world than true friends and that's exactly what these two are to me. Best friends are the best gift of all. Love them.

 Flowers and cupcakes - my co-workers just get me.

My birthday week was full of flowers, delicious dinners and decadent cupcakes from family and friends. But one of the sweetest treats was the Season 2 release of Orange is the New Black, which quickly consumed my weekend plans. I did manage to breakaway for a dinner date with my darling friend, Laura, at 1300 on Fillmore where I tried fried okra for the first time. So. Amazing.

I don't know about you, but this week really let me have it. After a rather stressful few days, there's nothing like a walk in the city on a beautiful Friday evening and letting all the noise from the week melt away.

Cream Cheese Baked Mashed Potatoes.

Stephen made these potatoes for my birthday dinner last night and I can't get them out of my mind. So delicious.

2 1/2 lbs small red potatoes
1/2 cup of whole milk
8oz plain cream cheese
2 scallions, chopped
salt and pepper

Directions: Boil potatoes until tender, about 15 minutes. When the potatoes are tender, drain them and let them dry out a bit. Mash potatoes with the whole mils using a potato masher. Add in the cream cheese and smash until the cheese melts into the potatoes. Then add the scallions and season with salt and pepper.

Strappy Black Sandal.

How can something so simple be so flattering? Everlane has pulled it off again. It's going to be a good Summer.

Stunning hydrangeas

I had the best weekend spent with family. Stephen's mother came out for a visit so we headed right down to Santa Cruz to visit with my mom for the weekend. Between the fresh crab, stunning weather and great company, a girl couldn't ask from much more.
