Pineapple Bowls

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Have you heard? Pineapple bowls are a huge summer trend and I like it! So, if you fancy adding a tropical touch to your meals, instead of serving your food on a plate, swap it for a carved-out pineapple instead! Here are six jazzy takes on those scrumptious bowls, starting with that pineapple smoothie bowl above...

Therapeutic Body Oil

Speaking of self-care, a couple of months ago I made this therapeutic rose, lavender, chamomile and calendula infused body oil that has became my go-to evening treat to relax my body before bedtime. If you haven’t tried body oils yet, you’re truly missing out, so head over here to make one yourself too.

P.S: Yum!
P.P.S: Plus, a few wonderfully jazzy perfume oils for you to try!

Home Tweak: Peg Rails

Monday, July 24, 2017

Have you noticed that simple peg rails are having a moment right now? They seem to be a staple of a well-designed, beautifully-organized and cozy home. Not to be mistaken, they've always been a part of many homes, but nowadays they're somewhat jazzier and niftier. Anyway, I've been thinking about getting one for our kitchen or bedroom. How awesome would it be to hang all the summer hats, straw baskets and breezy scarves on them? I'm a fan, you?

P.S: And this...
P.P.S: Have you tried those vases yet? They are beautiful!

In Knots

If you're bored of your everyday uniform, next time you're about to wear your go-to shirt, knot it in the waist to make it more summery and fun. You won't believe how sassy it will make you feel and look. Try it and let me know, deal?

P.S: Have you tried it yet?
P.P.S: Tons more fashion goodness this way...

Summer Hat Tip

Quick, before summer is over, and we have to put away our beloved straw hats, let's give them a snazzy update by jazzing them up with snazzy pom-poms. My mom is flying in on Friday for a weekend stay with us, so I'm thinking about trying this out then. What do you think: thumbs up or down?

Summer Wedding Tweak

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Ah, there is nothing more romantic than a summer outdoor wedding, is there? We've been on two in the last month and both brides wore baby's breath fresh crown. I spent the whole ceremony thinking about how perfectly it complemented the brides, despite their different gown choices. One of them wore a midi-style white dress and the other one sported a floor-length ivory backless gown. This whole thing made me realize that simplicity really works and it actually makes everything more beautiful and special...

What do you think, would you wear it?

P.S: Here is how you can make one yourself.
P.P.S: Fancy more?
