Weekend Notes

Happy weekend everyone, and more importantly, happy (almost) New Year! Camille is in Arizona spending a rejuvenating few days away at a wellness spa… so if you’ll have me, I (Chanel) will be serving today’s helping of Weekend Notes. I actually just got back from a mini vacay myself, so I’m spending the day running… read more

Party on Ice

December is coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean the cold weather (or winter entertaining) is going away any time soon! And to be honest,  I’m actually kind of excited about the prospect of throwing a party to celebrate something other than the holidays. We stopped by coco+kelley last week, and to ensure that the… read more

December Snapshots

What a month it’s been! Christmas has come and gone, and I’m feeling energized for not only a new month, but a whole new year. As usual, I’m taking time to reflect over some highlights from the past month, captured through the lens of Instagram (@camillestyles.) Leave a comment and let me know: what was… read more

New Year’s Eve :: Tinsel Inspiration

Ah yes, New Years Eve… the perfect last-hoorah to a season of ceaseless wining and dining. And though I’m not sure when it became customary to don sparkles and sequins and glitter (oh my), I have to wonder if there could possibly be a better tradition. So, this afternoon I thought I’d share some of my… read more

Transformed :: The Great (Empty) Wall

Hi there, hope you’ve all enjoyed a wonderful holiday with your friends and family! With New Years just days away, I (Claire) have been on the hunt for a project that will totally revamp a drab room. Now I don’t know about y’all, but I’ve had one sad wall in my house that’s stood blank and… read more

New Year’s Eve :: Wine & Cheese Party

Just when you thought the holiday festivities were winding down…it all starts ramping up again for the revelry of New Year’s Eve. Thought I’d share some inspiration from a holiday dinner party I hosted a couple weeks ago that embraces a slightly more rustic feel – I think it would be absolutely perfect for December… read more

DIY :: Poppin’ Bottles

The holidays just scream overindulgence, don’t they? It sounds crazy, but I’m almost at the breaking point where I’d be happy to not see another hors d’oeuvre or glass of wine for a very long time. As I attempt to turn the celebrating down just a few notches over the next couple of days, I figured I’d need… read more

The Best of Times

I know we’re on an all-white kick, but I thought it would be almost impossible to look forward to the new year without looking back on some of the wildly colorful parties we saw in 2011. From a spectacular Halloween cabaret to Grace Coddington’s birthday, we nearly died flipping through Vogue’s photo’s chronicling the best… read more

Tuesday Tastings :: Quick Healthy Chili

Have y’all tried cooking with bison? I first used it last year after hearing about it’s nutritional superiority to beef: 75 percent less fat, 40 percent more protein, loads of iron. I was happy to discover how yummy it is, too, and now I use ground bison in place of beef most of the time.… read more

Bring it Home:: Winter White

Cristina, here! If you’ve been traveling, shopping, wrapping, baking, eating, and eating some more, (like me!) then you’re probably looking forward to a little rest and relaxation this week. When I’m feeling overwhelmed, I love pouring over Scandinavian design for clean lines and bright whites that are beautiful and cozy. After opening presents and eating an… read more
