My Life, Styled :: A Sweet Treat

Thanksgiving is just over three weeks away, but here in LA things have been generally warm and sunny. I can’t complain, though, right? Generally warm and sunny weather is what you sign up for when you move here. Regardless, I have been trying to find ways to incorporate a little bit of fall into my… read more


The Perfect Bite:: Chocolate Vegan Cupcakes

Jess here, and today’s edition of The Perfect Bite will sneak its way into almost any meal… a fresh batch in the morning makes for delicious breakfast muffins, while a slather of frosting on top leaves you with a rich cupcake that’s perfect for satisfying those afternoon cravings. And since I chose to sub out some ingredients… read more


DIY :: Super bowl Cupcake Toppers

It’s a good thing the Superbowl is a week before Valentine’s Day, isn’t it? It really gives the boys one last chance to flaunt their machismo before things go all pink & flowery ten days later. Of course, we can’t possibly let the biggest game day of the year pass without somehow incorporating our pretty… read more


Tuesday Tastings :: A Pinch of Gold

Lately, I’ve been kind of obsessed with all things gold, from my new biz cards (I’ll show them to you Thursday!) to my Clare Vivier clutch to, yes, even the food I’ve been styling for shoots! Last week we put together a super glam shoot for HGTV in white and glittering gold, and the sparkle… read more


What Shade is Your Soirée? {7.8}

Ever since I heard about P. Diddy’s famed annual “white party,” I’ve always wanted to throw my own. (Did you catch Camille’s earlier this summer?) There’s something that just seems so glam about sipping champagne amongst a sea of white while swaying to the beat of acid jazz. But for my party, I’d put a… read more

With this in mind we designed a cheerful and eye-catching 10″ cake stand made simply using a hat box and assorted ribbon &… read more


Stocking the Bar

When glancing over the last few entries in our “Stocking the Bar” series, I was aghast to realize that I hadn’t yet devoted an entry to champagne…my very favorite! Although nothing’s better for marking a special occasion, I love how bubbly makes a normal weeknight feel suddenly festive. Fill stemless flutes with fizziness from a… read more


Colorful Cape Cod

I am head over heels for this gorgeous Cape Cod wedding photographed by the amazing Karen Wise. It takes a truly talented eye to use such a  colorful palette while keeping it chic and pulled together. The floral centerpieces on the mile-long communal table, and the polka dot toppers on the cupcakes are just two… read more


Princess Charming

There’s a fine art to creating a children’s birthday party that is creative & stylish, yet still age-appropriate and centered on the kids. I think this princess-inspired dessert buffet designed by Amy Atlas for Brooke Shield’s daughter Grier struck the perfect balance. A sprinkling of wands & tiaras and a sparkly pink, rose and gold… read more
