Mid-Summer Fare

 Couscous Salad

 Lavender Infused Lemonade

Foods for mid-summer are typically fresh vegetables and fresh fruits that are in season, harvested herbs and edible flowers, summer squash and any yellow or orange colored foods. Honey, pumpernickel bread, barbecue fare, herbal teas, fruit juices, punches, natural sweet wines, ales and meads.

A fine Midsummer celebration for family and friends would first be to visit a farmer's market, local farm stands and gather fresh ingredients for your feast. It supports local farmers and leaves a kinder, gentler footprint. Plan your meal for outdoors with a summer tablesetting and enjoy the summer breezes, as the season seems to be slipping quickly away.

Your Time (Happy Friday).

Hello my Lovelies. I trust you all a great week and looking forward to the weekend. I know I am, as I have lovely dinner plans with a trip to the beach as well as , to catch some much needed sunshine. Don't get me wrong there is great weather all around me here in the tropics, but when you are working in a cold air conditioning office, you don't see much of the sun or warm weather.

I adore simple weekend dresses like the one I've posted, that's breezy and light or shorts with filp flops and a huge beach bag where I just throw my stuff in. The weekend is also not complete without a broad rim hat, the broader the better.

Well Cheers to the wekend and be safe my Lovelies, till we meet again.

Love Lisa

holiday outfit inspiration

Hello everyone, are some you still trying to find that Thanksgiving outfit. here are some of my holiday picks for the season. I adore the Sigrid Blouse from Anthropologie that just screams holiday season, it's flattering in any size, when paired with Black leggings or skinny jeans. I am also a big fan of draping and the Sirpo pullover in red is indeed one of my favs for  all holiday parties.

Also from Anthropologie is this gorgeous Berlin midi skirt and printed Jacqui dress is divine. So I hope this post might give you a few more ideas as Thanksgiving draws near. Cheers to the Hols my lovelies.
