Summer Friday

How often do you feel the urge to travel? I’m not sure if it’s the realization that Labor Day is right around the corner or that Summer Fridays are about to disappear and I never got that sunny tan, but I’m feeling desperately in search of an adventure. I’ve been devouring travel magazines and screenshotting my favorite globe trotters’ Instagrams even more than usual now that my wanderlust is at an all-time summer high. I want to run through lavender fields in Provence, dive off an over-the-water bungalow in Bora Bora, catch some rays under the pink umbrellas in Miami,…

Rosé Alfredo

When Grant Melton’s rosé alfredo recipe hit the web earlier this summer, I swear 10 of my friends sent it to immediately. Clearly, my friends know me well lol! I mean, we all know rosé is gooooood and pasta is gooooood, so put the two together and I’m like ABSO-F*ING-LUTELY. Right ladies?! #GimmeAllTheCarbs #AndCheeeese Rosé alfredo seriously tastes like summer on a plate. Get Grant’s recipe here to make it yourself. I suggest modifying the recipe just a bit and not using as much salt and garlic as the recipe calls for—that’s all up to your personal preference though! I…

Pink Lady

So I know in your closet, you have your white jeans, black jeans and jeans in every shade of blue but do you have pink jeans??? And we aren’t talking about subtle blush jeans.

My friends and I went to Paris for a weekend (UGH I MISS COLLEGE) and we found this cute boutique that had a pair of pink jeans. I obviously was going to buy them and got my butt…

A Colorful Summer Picnic

My bestie Erica and I have been throwing parties together since the early 2000s! Thankfully, we have graduated from our high school days of curfews, hiding alcohol in trash bags, etc. I run Brooke du jour Events and Erica works at Darlington Avenue with her amazingly talented sister, Alexis, so we knew we had to get our heads together and plan a fabulous summer event! After much deliberation over various theme ideas (we are suckers for a good theme!), we decided to go with a summer picnic at Will Roger’s Park in Pacific Palisades with 20 of our best lady…

Golden Hour In Malibu

Hi ladies! First off, I want to apologize for not posting as often on the blog this past week. There were just too many balls in the air and unfortunately something had to drop. The old me would have berated myself for not giving 110% in every aspect of my life, but the new me just took a deep breath and vowed to do better next week. This is your Friday reminder to be kind to yourself, okay? : ) Let’s get to the good stuff now. HOW INCREDIBLE is this dress?! I think it would be really amazing for…
