Vogue - Selby Drummond’s stunning island wedding That dress! The v detailing reminds me of this top. Did you know we originally planned to have our wedding in St. Thomas? We later decided that it would be too much travel for my family coming from Europe. Love an island wedding though!

Last week was a busy one! On Wednesday evening I wore a dress by D’ascoli, a new to me designer from India. Their collections are all made by hand of globally inspired patterns and fabrics. This dress wasn't inexpensive but felt like something I could wear year after year to dinner parties, school functions, and casually during the day or at night on vacation.

recipe - Hummus is one of the easiest things to make. I usually will make a batch on Sunday nights for us to pick on throughout the week, or prepare it when we’re expecting guests. My favorite brand of chickpeas is Fig Foods. you can purchase them from Whole Foods or online here. The recipe is super simple: drain chickpeas and reserve 1/2 cup of the liquid. Add peas, 1/2 cup of olive oil, 1/2 liquid, 1/2 cup of organic tahini, juice from 1 lemon, 1/2 clove of garlic minced, and blend. VOILA!
podcast - I was recently introduced to The Art of Gathering and Priya Parker by my friend and founder of The Mama Collective, Tiere Hessert. More on her Tiere’s amazing group coming soon. I’ve been fascinated by Priya’s thoughts on the complexities of creating meaningful gatherings. In this podcast, she discusses what the real focus of a dinner should be, people. She puts down the idea that being a cool and laid back host is good for your guests and instead suggests that you should work to encourage meaningful connections. I recently hosted event and found myself critiquing it shortly after and asking these three questions: ““Why are we coming together, what do we care about, and how do we focus the light on that?”
trend - high-rise bikini bottoms. I for one love this look. I can’t wait to show you guys the suit I bought for our upcoming trip to Nantucket. I think there is something so classic and timeless about this style and its also comfortable.

Recently I’ve been thinking more about anti-aging practices and taking preventative measures to age more gracefully. I don’t want to try injectables right now. I have absolutely not judgement for those who do it, and maybe one day I will, but for now I’m interested in needle-less options. When I heard about the indiglo facial at a local acupuncturist Indigo Acupuncture I instantly wanted to try it. It is a combination of needles (accupuncture), gua sha, jade roller, and cupping. Not only did it feel heavenly but my face had absolutely “lifted”. I started to see results instantly but looked the best after 24 hrs. Sarah sent me home with this kit so I could continue the rituals on my own. I highly recommend putting the roller in the fridge and using it for reducing morning puffiness.
