new-use tuesdays: ketchup

Your fries can’t live without it, your grilled cheese sandwich yearns for it, your hot dog begs for it. Ketchup is a household staple. I don’t even eat the stuff, but my fridge is always stocked with it (what kind of hostess would I be if it wasn’t?). Here are a few less common but very effective uses for the condiment that you may not have considered before.

friday happy hour: aperol spritz

During the winter, I shared warm-you-up boozy drinks each Friday afternoon. Well, I’d like to bring the Friday happy hour back with a summery spin! Since there’s nothing quite like a cool bevvie at the end of a long work week, I’ll share a refreshing cocktail recipe each Friday for the next month or so. Next up: an Aperol spritz recipe. This Italian aperitivo (a pre-dinner cocktail) is light and refreshing – best served before a lingering alfresco meal.

decor vs. fashion: wicker basket or tote?

Think wicker is out this summer? Think again! We’re totally obsessed with using different fabrics and textiles this season, and rustic wicker is one of the most natural materials to experiment with. Incorporate it into your home decor and wardrobe using Williams-Sonoma’s wicker baskets or Banana Republic’s super-cute straw beach tote.

You have $100 to spend on something fabulous this week. Which item would you prefer–the wicker basket or tote?

friday happy hour: watermelon lime refresher

During the winter, I shared warm-you-up boozy drinks each Friday afternoon. Well, I’d like to bring the Friday happy hour back with a summery spin! Since there’s nothing quite like a cool bevvie at the end of a long work week, I’ll share a refreshing cocktail recipe each Friday for the next month or so. First up is this sweet and light watermelon lime refresher. Best enjoyed on a rooftop patio, it’s a mix of watermelon, mint and lime with the added hydrating benefits of pure coconut water.

entertaining pick: paperless post invitations

Today’s Style at Home Twitter chat was all about summer party planning. One of the questions asked how we send out invitations to a party? Via email, in person or online invite? There was an overwhelming consensus that Paperless Post is the best way to send out a party invitation, and I couldn’t agree more. My fiancé and I were so happy with our engagement party invitation that we sent to our family and friends via Paperless Post, so I thought I’d share it here.
