Hi everyone! Here are 5 things I’m loving lately that I wanted to share with you all—an easy and impressive dessert, the best women’s daily vitamin, a gorgeous Sarasota vacation home, my daily Merlot obsession, and a recent dinner party!
Prosecco + Sorbet
First up, for the easiest dessert ever that is also fun and impressive: grab a good raspberry sorbet and pour over some prosecco! In this photo I’m using Cà Furlan NV Cuvée Beatrice Prosecco which is fresh and cheerful with notes of citrus, lime, and white flower that pair nicely with the raspberry. Best part, it was under $15 at Whole Foods!
I love this idea for a dinner party where you don’t want to put in too much prep work— the bubbles add a nice drama to this dessert and make it feel special.
I have been loving the Ritual Vitamins I’ve been taking for the past several months. These are vitamins for women only (sorry guys). From D3 to Omega-3, their team of scientists has identified the nutrients most women aren’t getting enough of and included those in the capsule. Ritual shows you exactly where EACH vitamin is sourced from. For example, the K2 is from Oslo, Norway and they will tell you why they sourced it from there and why they feel this K2 is superior to others. So you fully know about each and every little module in your capsules.
These vitamins are easy to swallow and have a fresh, naturally minty taste. They are Non-GMO, with no fillers or colorants, and made in the USA. The best part, they arrive to your door in a cool little package each month—I’ve showed it below. I love a great customer experience like this one!
Hamptons Beach Home
I’m loving this beach-side property by Hamptons-based interior designer Tamara Magel. Known for her chic, minimalist style, she did that again here—but with an elegant nautical twist. Isn’t it refreshing to see a beach home without an overload of shells and crabs in the decor?! 😉
Ok—I am obsessed with this Trefethen Merlot. I went to a Trefethen dinner recently and bought a bunch of this there, where it was a favorite of almost all the guests. It just got released so it’s not out everywhere yet, but I’ve been reordering this on special order from winestore. It tastes like a Pomerol Merlot to me—the tannins are silky smooth and it goes down so very easy! If you need a great wine for a dinner or party, this is a safe bet and a sure winner.
I’ve linked it up here from the winery—you’re also able to buy it from them directly.
A great dinner party
Last but not least I love a dinner party done well and recently went to a Relish Carolina dinner themed “Montauk” in Charlotte. These are group dinners at one long table (love that!) where you get to mix and mingle with others around you. If you live locally and haven’t experience a Relish dinner, I would highly recommend putting one on your list!
I hope you all have an awesome rest of your week!
