Caramel apple cocktail recipes plus a fall tablescape…

image

It’s October: a time for all things apple. Most people rave about pumpkin this and pumpkin that, pumpkin patches, pumpkin flavors, pumpkin seeds & pumpkin carving but I am all about the apples. From apple crisps to apple nachos, even apple picking. (Apple nachos are an easier version of caramel apples that I do annually for my coworkers and after apple picking. Slice them and drizzle chocolate, caramel and melted marshmellows on top. You can add chocolate chips, peanuts etc.). So imagine my excitement when I heard about UV’s Salty Caramel Apple flavored vodka…

I am a fan of UV vodkas and no….I’m not saying this because they sent me a bottle to sample. I like fun vodka concoctions and UV’s Cake (mix it with pineapple juice to taste like a pineapple upside down cake) is in my fridge right now. In the summer I keep their Whipped flavored vodka on deck for this blended strawberry beverage I make. So I am truly a fan of the brand…

I figured I would create a little tablescape in a fall color scheme to keep it festive. I think the bright fiery orange and the black and white really looks fresh and modern. I used wallpaper to line the table & glitter/sequined craft paper as coasters. With the exception of the the leafy branches, I shopped my home to create this look…

Tuesday’s Tips: renting a room? Keep it neutral…

image

I’m baaack. I needed that week off from blogging. Anwyay I like to browse airbnb.com and look at homes you can rent and I’m always amazed at the design styles of people. Personally, if I were using a room or a home as a rental, I would keep it as neutral as possible and try to take cues from hotels. Maybe it’s the designer in me but I’ve come across way too many homes with dark busy bedding which would make me think of dirt. I even prefer hotels that at least have all white sheets. Dark and busy patterns is a way to hide dirt and spots. I think it doesn’t mean you have to be boring just stick with lighter shades and light patterns or maybe add some funky pillows to the mix. I simply think the less taste specific, the better in guest or rental rooms.

I have been beating myself up because I haven’t been as productive as I should. Nice weather kind of trumps getting anything done but this week I am not going to allow myself time for leisure until I cross off some main things from my task list. One thing that has slacked is my blogging. I will get it back together one of these days. I still have to share the sweet sixteen party I styled a few weeks ago. Anyhoo, cheers to a productive week!
