The official start of summer is nearly upon us and that means one thing - ice cream. When it comes to this cold treat, the sky is the limit with flavors and textures. I have yet to invest in an ice cream machine, but I am nearly about to cave after seeing these delicious recipes that I have been collecting on my Pinterest page. I also gathered a few of my picks for creating some of these delicious recipes! Continue for more...

The Stella McCartney Resort collection has given me a new love - combining floral and python. I am also loving her take on a more relaxed peplum, a silhouette that does not seem to be going anywhere, which I am very happy about. Here are a few of my favorites from the presentation.
I hope that everyone had a great weekend! It was a nice weekend here that started with spending time with family that was from out of town and was finished with a long sun-drenched brunch to celebrate Father's Day. If I were to put together the quintessential summer office look it would be this, a button-up blouse with a cute skirt and a chunky heeled sandal - it is effortless and chic and I would pair it with rosy cheeks. This brings me to a collaboration that looks amazing, Pierre Hardy for NARS. I currently have my eye on this rosy blush with gold flecks, isn't it just impossibly pretty?

With the change of the seasons, I usually find myself wanting to be outside as much as possible. There is nothing like spending a day surrounded by green grass, shady trees and blooming flowers.

I have been pinning to give me inspiration on what types of plants I should include in our 'garden' or the garden that I dream to have one day. I hope I inspire you too!

I love going to the fresh market this time of year, because it is over flowing with so many different varieties of fruits and vegetables, some that only stick around for a short while. One of my favorites is spring garlic, a milder version of the variety that you can find at the store. I was recently craving a healthy salad for lunch so I decided to combine spring garlic with kale and wheat berries for a nutrient packed lunch. I bet you wouldn't know it since I have a strong love, okay obsession, with baking and baked goods but I usually eat very healthy. I love incorporating fresh vegetables into my diet as much as possible. Continue for more...
