Party In Paradise

05.11.15


Once I touched down in paradise, my party bells have gone haywire. It's like the plane wheels hit ground + sparked an inner fire, buzzing and ringing...the volume only gets higher!!! The joy, the happiness and the elation I feel is surely the result of this island's appeal. So here I go throwing myself a little make believe party - every item an obsession that I admire entirely! 9 years it has been since I've lived in Oahu + it's never felt better. THAT for sure won't be argued.

So go along, indulge in my obsessions + let your first party rain down with the grandest of possessions!

All I want for Mother's Day...

05.05.15

Oh, STOP! It's not like I'm asking for a villa in the south of France! Just a few tokens of love and appreciation to reward my mothering stance. And really, who WOULDN'T want all of the above?! To be gifted with such reckless abandon, is the greatest sign of love! Plus, asking a mom to pick just ONE wish, is really rather repressive - you couldn't even bear the thought of making mommy feel burdened or depressive! So, take my advice and just gift her the whole ludicrous lot of loot - She'll feel so loved, appreciated, and utterly wooed!

Mrs. Grasshopper Cocktail

03.16.15


For some it's liquid libations + for others it's a cultural celebration. Whatever the purpose may be today, I say cheers to you in my MRS. way! If you're down for the cause + in for the count, grab your fancy glasses and prepare for the tongue-tickling dismount. BEHOLD a recipe from my book #2, it's the Mrs. Grasshopper Cocktail - go on and indulge like we good gals do....

Here's a real crowd pleaser - a frozen cocktail to whip up at your leisure! Straight from my Mrs. Lilien's Dessert Cocktail Swatchbook - and upon first sip, this frosty treat will have you on the hook! It's utterly ideal for a St. Patty's day libation - and by far a crowning choco-mint-tail innovation. It's not all that fussy, and rather easy to make - and thanks to the VODKA, it becomes an intoxicating drank!! So, go on and bust out that blender - tomorrow's St. Patty's day, and deserving of a boozy bender!

The Garden of Good & Regal

Caldrea_Garden-Party.jpg

If you've ever stumbled through a secret door and found yourself in an otherwise enchanting situation - then you can probably relate to my overwhelming delight when I happened upon this fabulous occasion! A few weeks back I jaunted off to NYC - there was a soirée to attend, something magical I needed to see! Up on the high rooftop of the Gramercy Park Hotel - to what before my eyes did appear? A beguiling garden rich with intoxicating smells! The wafting delight that amused my senses - came from the piles of Caldrea candles looming amongst floral-clad princesses. The scene was so otherworldly I believe my mouth lay piggishly open - it took everything I had not to saturate myself in the endless array of luxurious lotion. The Caldrea party was one truly a thing of wonder - which makes sense coming from a brand who specializes in fragrant products derived from horticulture. 

If you've been looking for that perfect present rich with alluring aromatics - take my MRS word that anything from Caldrea is sure dazzle anyone with their fragrant acrobatics!

I'd be fool not to mention that their blog is loaded with tips, recipes and inspiration galore - I have no doubt you'll be accosted with things you'll adore!
