Oscar de la Renta and Miles Redd


I am obsessed with the Oscar de la Renta and Miles Redd table setting collaboration.  It is so classic and timeless yet it also feels modern... and these images are amazing!




Love this brushstroke plate!  It would even look good hanging on a wall!


This faceted glass with blue rim is also on my radar.

Along with this gorgeous teak serving bowl! 

You can see the whole collection here.

On another note, I found some Orville Redenbacher's Gourmet microwave popcorn in the pantry last night and decided that I deserved a treat.  It was the white corn with real butter in the new pop up bowl and it was amazing!  It pops up perfectly and is so easy to eat out of the paper bowl, that I accidentally ate the entire bag.  OK, sorry for the rant but I just had to share how good it was and admit my guilt to all of you:)

Travel Tuesday - The Hills are Alive



 
The Sound of Music is my favorite movie.  I just love it and I love all of the beautiful images of Salzburg, Austria in the movie.  Salzburg is on my bucket list of places to visit and while there, I wouldn't mind staying here at the Schloss Fuschl Resort & Spa.
 
 
 
 

I also wouldn't mind drinking champagne in one of the "Ice Lounges"...LOL but I am serious!


As serious as this lady looks above in the lounge!






And yes, of course while there I would totally do The Sound of Music tour!




Top on my lists of sights to see would be..the back of the house used as the Van Trapp home in the movie.


I also want to march up the stairs where they sing Do-Re-Mi.


And I wan to dance around the I am 16 going on 17 gazebo! 

Amazing, right?  It makes me so happy to think about going one day:)

O-M-G!!!  I am dying to try these Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes!  I saw this recipe on pinterest and can't wait to try it!  

But I am even more excited about finding the fab blog that the recipe came from....The Minimalist Baker.  I love easy recipes that are simple, with just a few healthy ingredients...especially when the ingredients are whole foods.  The Minimalist Baker has tons of vegan and gluten free recipes that look fantastic.  Take a look at a few I want to try below and visit The Minimalist Baker here.

Travel Tuesday - Picture Perfect Village




I found this must read article in Conde Nast Traveler about fairy-tale villages around the world.  The picture above is of the hotel Auberge du Sombral, in St-Cirq Lapopie.  It is such a charming hotel and the medieval village of St-Cirq Lapopie is pictured below.



According to Conde Nast Traveler, the pictures above and below are of Italy's Civita di Bagnoregio which is  an hour and a half north of Rome and occupies a plateau 1,440 feet above sea level that is steadily eroding.



What a dream it would be to see these villages in person!

Hamptons Home Front Gate


Driving around in the Hamptons is seriously like driving in a fairy-tale.  The houses are so beautiful and grand but my favorite part about driving down the streets are the beautiful front gates.  The hedges, flowers and lawn around the driveway are beautifully manicured and if you are lucky the gates are open and you can really get a good peek at the beautiful home at the end of the driveway.  This picture from Sotheby's reminded me of the beautiful front entrances of some of  the homes  we saw last summer in the Hamptons.  Here are a few more pictures of the outside of this lovely home.

Travel Tuesday - Wharekauhau Lodge


OK, I am obsessed!  I have not done a travel Tuesday in a long time but this one makes it worth the wait!


Set on the coastline of Wairarapa, New Zealand, Wharekauhau Lodge is a boutique hotel located on a 5,500-acre working sheep and cattle farm.


I love the architecture and design details and the scenery is out of this world amazing!







I think I found a honeymoon worthy hotel!  I can just see me and my fiance prancing around on the horses in the picture above.  Go to their website here for more info.
