Loving Now: Reclaimed Wood Furnishings

As someone who is constantly re-doing my home, at lease in my head, I've found a new obsession: reclaimed Peroba wood furnishings. The warm 3 dimensional tones of the Brazilian wood lend a luxurious feel to otherwise rustic inspired furnishings.

Thirsty Thursday: La Medicina Latina


Forget having that same old margarita, turn up the heat with La Medicina Latina. Lemon, honey, ginger and most importantly, tequila make this a sweet sipper.

Ingredients: 
2 oz. Tequila Anejo
1 oz. Lemon juice
1/2 oz. Honey
One large pinch of fresh ginger

Instructions:
Combine the lemon juice, honey, and ginger, and stir with a spoon until mixed well. Add the tequila and a giant ice cube (or a couple small ones), and stir to let the ice sweat. Sit back and enjoy!

Inspiration Room: Young & Restless


I'm loving everything about this feminine living room by San Francisco based Palmer Weiss Interior Design. Two of my favorite features are the coffee table by Worlds Away and the geometric patterned shag rug. The mix of Palm Springs Retro and Beach Chic creates a truly unique vibe.

LABEL LUST: Rachel Zoe

With a successful styling business, reality show, line for QVC and an adorable new baby I have no idea how Rachel Zoe found the time to create such a stunning line of "better" merchandise. Her clothing could easily be called "best of"- subtle sparkle, lean 70's style suiting and wistful dresses - that she is known for in her personal style and when dressing celebs. I'm also dying for her handbags - classic shapes, luxe materials and subtle detailing.

 
Hurry and head to Neimanmarcus.com. to preorder the Rachel Zoe Fall Collection now through Tuesday, July 12th.
