SEPTEMBER HOME FAVORITES

Fall is almost here! The transition into fall is my favorite time of year to get the house ready for cozier times and indoor entertaining. So my September favorites are dedicated to pieces to make home a prettier and more enjoyable place. Let's move the party inside...

TWINK'S FAVORITE SUMMER PARTY PINS

I loved Sissy's summer party pins in yesterday's post. For me, this month is all about enjoying amazing food, drinks and ambience with the people I love (but frankly, when is it not?). Here are the pins that inspire me to revel in this final month of summer.

TWINK'S JULY FAVORITES!

Summer really is the best. It feels like a 24/7 party and everything is just a little more fun. So in my summery state of mind, here are my picks for July. xx

TWINK'S ALL-TIME FAVORTES!

It's June 1st! Since it's our birth month (I'm on the 27th and Sis is on the 25th) we thought we'd go deeper into the Twink + Sis pyche and share some our all-time favorites -- the things we can't live without! So, without further ado, here are mine!

Hats are basically the greatest invention ever. You could have the dirtiest, "overwhelmed mom of a toddler" hair, throw a great fedora on, and you look instantly stylish. I love Rag & Bone's hats -- I have several and wear them constantly. 

I have been drinking Bulletproof coffee for about a year and a half now, and I don't think I will ever go back to life without it. I blend grass-fed ghee, Bulletproof Brain Octane & Collagelatin and cinnamon with my hot coffee, in the blender each morning. It's the best way to wake up! I feel energized and nourished. I'm a fat-aholoic!

Vintage rugs make a house. At least they do mine! They bring so much beauty and character! My good friend and designer, Peri Perry introduced me to Lawrence of LaBrea. If you live in the LA area they will bring rugs of your choosing to you, to try in your home! Love that kind of service!

I'm all about natural beauty products, particularly when they go over your entire body. I love the smell and feel of Nubian Heritage Coconut Papaya Body Lotion. I use it every day post-shower!

I love taking Brixton for afternoon outings to The Brentwood Country Mart. They have the cutest shops and host movie nights for kids in their courtyard, every Monday night in the summer!

I never knew workout socks had to be anything special until I discovered Balega Hidden Comfort Socks about five years ago. LIFE. CHANGING. Particularly if you do any type of high impact sport like running or dance. 

 

 

A really good citrus juicer has improved my hosting abilities tremendously. I can make lemonade or fresh squeezed orange juice so quickly. We are sticklers for fresh drinks and make our own lemonade for a lot of our parties. The Breville Citrus Press Pro makes my hosting life so much easier.

 

This BLK DNM leather jacket is a wardrobe staple and it's under $1K. I wear it with everything. Enough said. 

 

If you had x-ray vision into my body, you would probably find a sea of GT Dave's Gingerade Kombucha. I've had at least one a day (if not a few. hehe) for about 7 years. Life just doesn't feel complete without it!

John Robshaw is the OG of high-end, exotic textiles and I'm a huge fan of his beautiful pillows and super soft blankets. I have this hand-stitched coverlet on my bed. It's dreamy.

A really good day (or bad one) ends with Justin's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. I believe they taste particularly amazing chilled, so I always keep my stash in the fridge. 

 

Jason gave this Jennifer Meyer initial pendant to me (in a "b") after I had Brixton. It's so dainty and beautiful, and reminds me of the greatest gift ever!!! I never take it off. 

Happy June!!! Just so happens to be my favorite month! ;)

xoxoxo!!

TWINK'S MAY FAVORITES

May is such a fun month for our family! Brixton & his dad have the same birthday -- May 20th! With Mother's Day in the mix, each of us gets to be celebrated in this glorious, late spring month. Here's what I'm eying right now -- for Mother's Day and beyond. ;)

Perennial favorite, HEATH CERAMICS, recently released their gorgeous handmade pieces in this new juicy orange hue, just in time for the coming sunny season. I thought it looked especially great on this single stem vase and would make a great Mother's Day gift.

 

Since Brixton is turning 3 this month, I'm in the process of converting his nursery to a little boy's room. My number one design item for a kid's room is wallpaper. It's an instant room-transformer and I just love what it does to a space! I recently found this adorable Explorer Kids World Map Wallpaper on Pinterest.

We recently designed a pre-Mother's Day Cocktails & Crafting Party for some of our fellows moms who deserved a little girl time! For the event, we collaborated with MAKERS MESS and made the prettiest seed bead bracelets, with secret Morse Code designs. Their genius bracelet-making kit is perfect for a night in with girlfriends, over a glass (or several bottles) of wine and good conversation. 

 

Cabo is my jam. Overlooking the stunning Sea of Cortez Auberge Resort's Esperanza just underwent a complete, head-to-toe, renovation and it's looking beyond heavenly. Couldn't think of a better Mother's Day gift. Ahem!

 

If I can't have Cabo, I'll take this Unicorn floaty via Get Floaty in my pool! And maybe a fresh cocktail to go with. 

 

At the end of the day, I just want to cozy up on the couch with my family. Might as well cuddle in style with this gorgeous Aldalora throw from Anthropologie.

 

Let's be honest though... For a day to really be perfect it needs to end with something amazingly delicious, and preferably chocolate. I might need to whip up Martha Stewart's Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake. In the name of Mother's Day!!

Hugs to all of you incredible moms out there. xx!
