Spend a hot afternoon indoors and plan on teaching your kids something new like making homemade popsicles but maybe not this one since it includes champagne:)

Ingredients
500g raspberries
200ml water
100ml whipping (soy) cream
100ml agave syrup

Directions
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Divide between popsicle moulds or shot glasses. Freeze for at least 5hours. Enjoy with the champagne.

Things to Do in Summer

Have you ever gone windsurfing? The first time I tried was in the summer going into fifth grade when I went away to an all girls camp in Maine. After my first lesson, I signed up every chance I got. The instructor was this very cool Australian twenty something girl who acted like my big sister and  helped me adjust and get use to the camper lifestyle since many of the girls grew up spending their summers with each other. I loved being out on the water with her, she helped grow as a person and introduced me to a sport that I quickly grew obsessed with. Next time you head to the coast make sure to rent a board and try out one of the best water sports. Hopefully you'll fall in love like I did so long ago :)

Things To Do This Summer




Whether you have a shed in the backyard or not, I love the idea of building your own sanctuary in the backyard. A little den, reading nook, office, man cave, whatever your heart desires make it your own space where you can enjoy some quiet time. And if you have kids and want to make it a summer project, get the whole family involved in making the coolest backyard/tree house ever.

Weekend Wrap Up...

the prettiest door knob you've ever seen, straight from the plaza.
 getting prepped for the fourth with endless boxes of sparklers. 
 imperfect peach manicures, pink and studs. 
trying out new makeup and loving this american inspired cap. 
good reads, weekend showing of my favorite doctor show,
sparklers and fresh soap.

Friday Showing

Have you seen the latest disaster movie, San Andres? It was our Father's Day outing last weekend, a Sunday afternoon well spent. A pretty decent cast and the complete destruction of San Francisco, I have to say it is definitely one of my favorite disaster films...just behind Twister :) What are you watching this weekend? 

Friday Morning

It's officially summer and all I can think about is my massive book list I need to start on and moving to the coast. It's only the third week of June and the hottest day so far has been 112 degrees!!! I need to get out of here!!! I'm looking forward to spending the weekend with my sister working on a few fun projects, staying cool, kicking back and playing with my dogs. What are your plans for the weekend? Can you believe next week is already July, summer is going by way to fast??
