Infusing grandeur into otherwise drab Monday mornings with five things/ideas/events for the week:
I. I am obsessed with the print company 20x200. One of my favorite pieces is this “Salty” print by Michelle Vaughan. I framed it with two oversize mats for maximal impact and paired it with my Jonathan Adler custom pillow and a scrumptious chinchilla throw.
II. While I adore a super chic Paperless Post invite as much as the next girl, some occasions call for the old-fashioned printed version. For a friend’s engagement party, I created the invitation mock-up and uploaded it to this amazing company that creates postcards that are as beautiful as they are affordable.
III. After weeks of frigid, San Francisco is experiencing a mild heatwave this week. I’ll be making this delicious Blackberry Bourbon Smash to keep cool:
- 2 shots bourbon
- Half-cup ginger beer
- Fresh mint (two sprigs muddled, plus extra for garnish)
- Fresh blackberries (4 muddled per drink)
- Splash of soda water
- Twist of lime
- Serve over ice
IV. I am beyond excited for Opening Night of the San Francisco Ballet this Thursday!! If you have’t yet, pick up tickets to this much anticipated evening - including a Prosecco Promenade, pre-performance dinner, an unforgettable ballet, and a raging afterparty!
V. The Obama women rocked it today at the presidential inauguration. I was particularly thrilled to see Malia sporting my favorite J. Crew coat. I’ve had it in crimson for years, and still receive compliments every time I wear it!
Have a wonderful week!! xx tt
