Jasmine Love

It seems that every time I visit a new destination, I somehow fall head-over-heels for a certain scent that comes to represent the place in my memories. There were the rose gardens in Paris… the lavender in Tuscany… then the diffusers that smelled like sea salt and were placed in every corner of our hotel… read more

On My Nightstand

For me, summertime and books go hand-in-hand. There’s something about settling into a hammock (or a beach chair, or a picnic blanket) with a captivating novel or memoir that symbolizes the ultimate in slowing down and savoring — what summer is all about! This month, I’m cooking (and eating) from a fab new cookbook that… read more

Weekend Notes

Good morning, lovelies! Hope you’re all enjoying your weekends, savoring summer, and diving into something extra delicious on this Sunday morning (and if you haven’t decided what yet, may I suggest one of these?) Our weekend kicked off early with Phoebe’s first trip to the zoo on Friday, and since then it’s been a whirlwind… read more

From Camille’s Kitchen :: Summer Berry Ice Cream Cake

You guys know that I’m not usually one to post big, complicated-looking desserts, but I do think that it’s a good idea to have one or two showstopping tricks up your sleeve for those times when you volunteer to make your mom’s birthday cake or really need to get on your friend’s good side before… read more

5 Days of Great Style

I’ve read interviews where some of the most stylish, well-dressed women in the world claim that even they have days when they look in their closets and feel like they have nothing to wear. So it probably goes without saying that most of us earthlings have moments when our wardrobes feel uninspired, yet we don’t always… read more

Summer Cooking Party with Athena & Eden

There’s nothing I love more than inviting a girl friend to come hang out in my kitchen: cooking together, comparing recipe notes, opening a bottle of wine and inevitably sharing lots of laughs. Two of my favorite foodie gals recently got together and did all of the above, and blogger-designer Athena Calderone was sweet enough… read more

From Camille’s Kitchen :: Peach Shortcakes with Lavender Cream

Even in today’s world where you can get pretty decent strawberries, citrus, and other produce all year round (imported of course, but totally edible), peaches are one of those items that should be reserved for summertime only. The flavorless and mealy stone fruit that pop up in grocery stores out-of-season barely resemble the sweet, luscious… read more

Weekend Notes

Hello, hello! It’s a big weekend around here… we celebrated Chanel’s birthday yesterday (hence the huge cup of coffee in my hand as I recover from last night’s “punch”), and now we’re all anxiously awaiting the arrival of our editor-in-chief Lauren’s baby tomorrow! Can’t believe there’s going to be a newborn in our midst, and… read more

10 Best :: Cherry Desserts

Today’s 10 Best is dedicated to my mom, the world’s biggest cherry lover. Every year for as long as I can remember, the moment that cherries hit peak-of-season, she heads to the grocery and picks up a big bag which she “accidentally” devours on the car ride home.  As wonderful as they are eaten fresh out… read more

How to :: Avoid the Comparison Game

We’ve all felt it: the slight gnawing twinge of discontent (or maybe it’s even evolved into a slight depression) that pops up after spending time scrolling through our social media feeds. Call it what you want — envy, jealousy, FOMO — but there’s no doubt it’s often a result when we allow ourselves to play the… read more
