Faded Summer Backyard Bop

19 Sep

IT’S STILL SUMMER! Fight me. Lol

Welcome to the beginning of the end of another beautiful summer where the intense bright heat begins to give way to mellow humid evenings.

These are some pictures from a relaxed summer evening spent with friends.

Get your guests warmed up with a fresh cocktail.

This one is a fizzy gin and prosecco mixture. I added a bit of the rhubarb and ginger gin liquor and topped it off with prosecco to create a light bubbly yet intoxicating drink.

Add a decorative touch

I pulled a few flowers from a larger arrangement and put them in this large mason jar to add a little natural, simple decor.

Fresh, delicious eats

An important part of any gathering apart from the people and the cocktails is of course the food. Pictured here are :

Pasta pots; orecchiete pasta (so named because they are shaped like ears), cheddar cheese and pasta sauce mixed and baked into ramekins.

Peach and arugula salad: Mixed arugula and other lettuce, sliced peaches with crumbled feta and a lemon honey dressing.

Chicken fruit skewers: Sauteed chicken breast alternated with red plums and pineapple on skewers grilled to perfection.

We also had mini burgers served in pittettes (mini pita pockets) and batter fried eggplant.

The evening started off balmy with bugs and ended cool, and relaxed. Enjoy the last days of your summer and have a great day.

ON Trend: NEON Moment

26 Jul

So… NEON, ammirite?

Neon is out and about this year especially this summer. While brightly hued clothing, jewellery and even makeup isn’t new having had moments of insane popularity throughout the past 30 years or so 2019 is definitely a year for Neon to shine.This year Neon is popping up in little and big ways on the runway, in stores and on the streets.

OPI Neon polishes, Huda Beauty 9 pan Neon eyeshadow palettes, Orange bag by Zara.

Okay, so neon is popping and happening but you aren’t really a neon person so how can you incorporate this trend into your style? I would say a little goes a long way. Sure you can dress yourself from top to bottom in bright orange, hot pink and acid green, that’s cool but if you’re a little less…loud, you can try little accents here and there.

A great way to incorporate neon is with smaller clothing pieces like bikinis or cropped tops or jewellery pieces like earrings.

You can also add bright neon pops of colour with your makeup like a pink lip or orange eye or accessories like a wristlet or socks.What neon items do you plan to pick up? Have an awesome day!
