One of my favorite things about visiting Lisbon is ogling the intricate and colorful tilework. There is a famous tile museum there, but you can see just as many gorgeous examples by just wandering through the streets and back alleys of the city. #lisboa #principereal #colorplay
Prettiest Peruvian quinoa over a bed of creamy qapci @llamainn. Shinny would usually rather eat a pile of dirt than #quinoa but he actually enjoyed this dish, so that's saying a lot.

Almost every girl has a few too-big T-shirts in her closet, but instead of just wearing them to bed at night how about refashioning one into a cute tunic dress? I love this fashion DIY because it’s really easy to do and the resulting A-line dress is so easy to just throw on – especially for summer. The other great thing about this DIY is that if you have a tee with a graphic on it, you can even make your dress reversible so that you can wear it with the image in front for days you feel cheeky or wear the plain side in front on days when you’re feeling more serious.

Took advantage of the stunning Hudson Valley scenery at Amy and Francisco’s wedding at Monteverde at Oldstone at Cortlandt Manor. I thought I’d be cool in this lacy ice blue dress but I was shvitzing big time behind those reflective sunnies! #prelovedfashion
A crunchy, crispy perk of growing squash: fried zucchini blossoms! It feels like a crime to be eating these for free because they’re usually so expensive. My waistline will be paying though.
Here’s the simple recipe that I used to fry these babies up courtesy of Epicurious:
Here’s a little DIY I came up with after running into a bit of a conundrum when trying to pack for a few upcoming bachelorette parties. Without making myself sound like too much of a fogie, I’m well past my clubbing phase, and I realized I no longer owned any Vegas or Cancun-appropriate tiny purses or pochettes. But I didn’t want to go out and purchase an entirely new bag that I knew would likely just get shoved in the back of my closet (at least until some of my other friends got engaged). After scouring Pinterest for an hour or so, I saw that the young whippersnappers were favoring teeny, colorful crossbody wallet-on-chain bags and then it hit me! A wallet-on-chain is not much more than what the moniker implies – a wallet on a chain. So I basically just took my Chanel wallet and popped a chain on it to turn it into a mini purse. The neat thing about this DIY is that when you’re done using your wallet-on-chain, you can simply convert it back to a regular wallet. Don’t you just love convertible accessories? Read on to see the full how-to tutorial.
Pillowcases, like earrings, shoes, and even some people, just don’t seem to function as well when they aren’t in a pair. So what do you do when you’re left with just one pillowcase after losing one to the laundry monster? Well, there’s no reason why you can’t just keep using it, but if you’re one of those people who is nitpicky about things matching, you can also turn your lone pillowcase into a cute summery top. Read on for the instructions.

We’ve all experienced it – boot slump. When the weather warms up and you go to store your favorite pairs of boots only to have the tops flop over like Sad Sam’s ears, creating a messy situation in your closet and making your boots more likely to get fall into disrepair. I’ve seen products on the market like these blow up “boot keepers,” but who wants to spend more money on plastic when the solution to boot slump could already be right on your coffee table – back issues of your favorite magazines! They’re free (well, besides the money you originally dished out for your subscription), they keep your boots nice and crisp, and when you go to fetch them in the fall, you’ll get a blast of past fashion inspiration (because who wants to be a slave to the season’s latest trends anyway?).
Happy #worldplantingday everyone! I just wanted to share the progress my precious 🌈 mix micro greens have been making. As you can see, they’re still extremely micro, but more and more of them have been peeking their brightly colored heads out. Does anyone know what that butterfly-ish one is?
