Negroni Fizz Cocktail


Today I am on the road, on my way to our home in Italy. I will be blogging from there all summer so hope you join me for a summer of fun and adventures galore. I wanted to leave you with a little something cheery to celebrate my Italian summer kick-off.

As you know I am a big fan of Martini spirits and I decided I needed to add a little fizz to my Negroni.

You may have seen this recipe on Camille Styles website last week, well here’s the complete recipe.

Piling on the long necklaces, feather boas, lacy nighties and glittery heels from my treasure trove of “dress up” clothes when I was 3.

4.I could not live with out my….
Chanel lipgloss, MiH Jeans, Wellies in the winter and Havaianas in the summer.

Design Inspiration Friday: Elegant Fall Fete

I was really excited to see that Camille Styles had featured my dinner party for Rue Magazine as inspiration for an “Elegant Fall Fete.” I loved the elements they chose to pull and highlight. It was such a fun dinner party with s’mores, salads, antipasto, and more. You can find the menu and recipes here.

Thanks for the fun feature Camille and team!
