Giving Thanks Done Right.

With the season in full swing and the anticipation of Thanksgiving in the air, what are you, my Lovelies up to. I recently poured over the Rue Magazine Holiday Issue now online. My inspiration today is taken from the festive shoot of Ryder Sloan Events at the Stable Cafe.

I adore the wooden bistro chairs and those hand craved peacocks. The colors are fresh and warm, with touches of gold and copper goblets and pine cones to give this setting an effortless rustic feel.

Details are everything and the serving platter above is genius, in keeping the rustic theme. I hope everyone is inspired, especially those of you who will be hosting Thanksgiving this year. Take care everyone and have a Happy Thanksgiving.


  1. I like that it is outside surrounded by those plants! Our weather is warmer again this year and if it is warm enough next week I may just move dinner outside! Thanks for the idea - and I miss your posts so don't let so much time pass between now and the next post!!

  2. such a gorgeous table :)
    Have a great day

  3. What a beautiful setting! I'm not hosting but I've got a lot to make!

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.
