Summer Berry Ice Cream Cake | Camille Styles

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


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


At the Table :: A Moroccan Summer

When I think about travel, I long for exotic locales like Africa and India. I wanted to create a table scape that felt like a departure just by sitting down around it. The colors in India and Morocco are super rich and vibrant, so I chose a palette that would reflect those intense reds, greens, yellows… read more


The Decoder :: Beach Bag Beauty Essentials

In my summerland fantasy, I make like Anne Marie Chadwick (Kate Bosworth’s character in Blue Crush, one of my favorite movies as a teen) and simply brush my teeth before putting on my bikini, grabbing my surfboard, and dashing to the ocean to hang ten. Unfortunately, my reality is a little more complicated (girly?) than that —… 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


The Art of Souvenir Shopping

EDITOR’S NOTE: French Culinary Institute-trained Andrea Duty is a dear friend of the blog who we often collaborated with when she lived in Austin and ran her delicious custom dessert catering company, Bake Sale. Although our sweet tooth was devastated when she set off for life abroad in London, we couldn’t have been more excited… read more


Morning Meals :: Heirloom Summer Herb Frittata

I recently realized how much I absolutely love frittatas. Not the tasteless and chewy ones from your average brunch buffet…I’m talking the homemade kind. Anytime I’m entertaining for breakfast, the frittata is my go to. It’s similar to the age-old “everything but the kitchen sink” soup or salad. The possibilities here are endless and best when… read more


Camille’s Carry-On Essentials

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a pretty streamlined packer, and the same goes for my “personal item” bag that gets stowed under the airplane seat. The key is to strike that balance between feeling underprepared, and feeling overly laden down with a too-heavy tote (the opposite of a vacation mentality!) I actually used to bring… read more


My Life Styled :: The Midi Dress

This week marks a big milestone. It’s my first week back to styling since having Parker and it’s come with mixed emotions. While I’m already missing her sweet, soft baby snuggles, it has been really satisfying to be back doing what I love and creating looks. Plus, I have to admit it’s been fun to… read more


Office Style :: Hotel San Jose

Austin’s beloved Hotel San Jose serves as a favorite watering hole for locals, a must-visit spot for boutique hotel lovers from across the world and as one of the overall iconic epicenters of cool in the city. We stopped by for this month’s installment of Office Style to find out more about some of the… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: Take a Hike

If today’s inspiration board doesn’t make you itch for a dose of the great outdoors, I don’t know what will.  A friend of mine spontaneously headed out to Rocky Mountain National Park last week, and looking at his photos got me reminiscing about the countless summer hikes and camping trips I took growing up, and… read more
