Cocktail Flag

I love styling photo shoots for the Adult Beverage Company!  Soooo when Nikki (co-founder of ABC) asked me to create & style a July 4th inspired drink for Adult Limeade I knew exactly what I wanted to do:  Mini frozen AL's in red, white & blue!   How fun is this!  And the presentation will WOW & impress your friends-which is what we all want right ladies?   

They really are simple to make just a little time consuming.  I recommend making all of one flavor at one time, fill the glasses & store in the freezer.  For all the details, visit Nikki's blog here:

What are you making for the 4th?

Getaway just for two

Enjoying a much needed weekend getaway with my sweet hubby.  We are staying at the amazing Ritz Carlton at Dove Mountain. 

Michael is spending the morning at their incredible golf course.

If you need me, I will be here with my BFF.  

It's the perfect way to enjoy the weekend!

Couples office

 Started working on a new home office this week for clients in Chandler.  We designed custom built in cabinetry with two separate desk areas for the husband & wife.  We also designed a cabinet to house the tv as well as to display their treasures.  It is going to be an amazing transformation!

I had so much fun mixing & styling this Fathers Day cocktail for Adult Limeade! I mixed equal parts of Adult Limeade & Corona into an ice filled cocktail shaker & poured into a salt rimmed glass.  My hubby was the official taste tester (one of his favorite jobs) & he loves it!  It is 100% Dad approved!

Design philosophy

I love this quote from Nate Berkus:
I believe that you should have only things in your home that you love & reflect your personality & passions in life.  All of these collected treasures tell your story & make up your home.
