wed / pretty place settings

While scrolling through my recent pins, I realized I have been drawn to pretty place settings. No longer comprised of just silverware and a napkin, place settings can include small bits of greenery or other simple touches that go a long way to create a beautiful and unique atmosphere. 

Looking to dress up the table for your next dinner party or a wedding? Here are some ideas for you!

I looooove LL Bean and Lands End canvas totes and am currently eyeing this leather handled one. A loves it too and I'm thinking my new last name might be the perfect monogram.

Babysitters Club Fashion. This is everything.

Did you see the Sesame Garlic Tacos recipe I posted? They are delicious!!

eat / taco tuesday

I made these tacos last week and am already planning to make them again. They were SUPER easy and a nice change up of my usual Tex-Mex style tacos. I did make a few small changes: I added some finely chopped scallions to the beef at the end, added a little minced garlic (from the jar) with the garlic oil to the vinegar mixture, and did thinly sliced radishes instead of the cabbage. Find the whole recipe from BHG here!
