Since we’re all about the summertime picnic today…I couldn’t resist sharing this too-cool-for-school boxed lunch spotted at the most stunning English wedding on 100 Layer Cake.

Monochromatic Monday :: Bougainvillea

During my honeymoon in the Amalfi Coast last year, I was completely swept away by the sight of lush bougainvillea spilling over every wall, dotting the hillsides of white stucco with brilliant bursts of fuschia & amethyst.

Picnic de Provence

Last night I was all ready to go to my fave French restaurant with friends…only to discover that (horrors!) they’re closed on Tuesdays. Since I didn’t get to satisfy my steak frites cravings, I’m feeling particularly enamored with this Provençal Picnic spotted on Design Sponge.
