A Halloween Tablescape


What a chic Halloween tablescape...no? ...love this idea of using candles on clear glass bottles as a centerpiece combined with two flower bouquets! I've seen a picture before where the entire centerpiece was done the candle-bottles.

 I am really not into the spooky decoration on Halloween but this year my oldest son started asking for it...! What is your Halloween theme this year? Any recommendation on a chi-spooky party?

For more inspiration go to the Pinterest folder {here}.

How-to:

Wine and Cheese Pairing Party (includes Pairing Guide)


Say farewell to long summer nights and invite friends over for a casual wine and cheese pairing party... after all wine and cheese are two of life’s greatest culinary pleasures!! You can have your guests bring wine and you can set up a decadent cheese table using wood, glass and stone for an eclectic earthy look! Love how they use cake stands to display cheeses and grapes using different heights! You can get creative with cheese place cards or purchase a nifty slate cheese tray, which allow you to etch cheese names in chalk.
When it comes to pairing..treat cheese as food...lighter cheeses are better with lighter wines - fresh goat cheese with a crisp Sancerre, for instance. Richer cheeses, like Camembert or Tête de Moine, need a more full-bodied wine, such as white Burgundy or a Pinot Gris from Alsace.

Here is a complete cheese and wine pairing guide:

Fashion Inspiration by Malibu Style


When it comes to fashion classics with a sleek design and luxurious details...I think of bold stone necklaces, natural silky dresses...shoes with a dash of glitter and spark, subtle wrist party but with good quality pieces, a bold red statement, a touch of animal print, the quintessential trench coat....!!

What comes to your mind when you think of sleek design, classic lines and luxurious details?

As part of Chevy Malibu promotional campaign we where asked to do Pinterst Board (view here) and share how the classic Chevy Malibu inspire us with its classic design. I personally love an ad campaign that speak directly to smart women and that focuses on providing value rather than just another promoting a product. How about you?

So good to be back! More posts to come...!

The Ultimate Espresso Machine


It doesn't get better than an espresso machine that knows who you are....!! Love every morning waking up...pressing the machine display and listening to the noise of coffee beans grinding...knowing that I am going to start my day with the perfect coffee... exactly the way I like it!

If you have been reading this blog you know I love hosting the perfect party...and finishing an event with the perfect cappuccino or espresso is the ultimate hostess dream...at least for me! So when I was asked to do a review of the Saeco I jump with excitement...! Take a look at my first caffelatte I made minutes after getting my espresso machine {here}.



You can make american-style coffee to traditional Italian expresso...just by pushing one button... how fabulous is that? Love the fact you don't need to read the manual to have the perfect cup of coffee...the display walks you through each step...making it super easy to get your perfect cup of coffee each time you need it. It beats going to the coffee shop and praying that the baristas gets your order correct!



You have hardly seeing me endorse a product...but if you are looking for the ultimate gift for the coffee lover or if you are are a serious coffee lover who knows exactly how you love your coffee, then the Saeco Xelsis Digital ID is really the way to go....and in my love the look of my guests when they are enjoying that perfect espresso after a lovely dinner party!
