Happy Sunday Everyone! It’s a beautiful day here on the Central Coast and I am planning on working in the yard until the football game. Every Sunday Mary Ann, Annie and I share our favorites. This week it’s all about the color red. I am sharing pillow ideas for my family room, a pretty tablescape, a great shrimp taco recipe and more. Welcome to Sunday Favorites-Valentines, My Family Room and More.
Since we have been spending so much time at home, I am really tired of the pillows in my family room and my tv room. Today I am sharing the inspiration board for my ideas. I will share all the sources in a post when the room is updated. I thought you might enjoy a little eye candy while you wait.
FAMILY ROOM INSPIRATION BOARD
PINCH OF YUM SHRIMP TACOS WITH GARLIC CILANTRO LIME SLAW
I made these last week. I actually used a combination of scallops and shrimp (from Trader Joe’s). The slaw is absolutely delicious. I made it with yogurt so it was Weight Watchers friendly. Everyone loved them. You can find the recipe here
THE MEWS ON INSTAGRAM
Do you follow the Mews on Instagram. If you want to get into a lot of trouble you might want to give them a follow. They hand handpicked handcrafted fabrics, furnishings and homewares from Europe. There is tons of inspiration here including this gorgeous tablescape that might give you some valentine ideas.
VALENTINES GIFTS FOR HER
We usually start to see Spring peek its head out about mid-February when all the nurseries start bringing in Spring plants. However, I know most of you are still freezing. I put together two outfits of the week this week. This one is for the East Coast. I love these Madewell Ainsworth jeans, they are my go tos. Jo Malone has a new scent called poppy. My favorite is lime basil and mandarin, but they are all wonderful. You know I am a big fan of the Artemis loafers and slides. I wear the slides because of my bunion. OPI Big Red Apple looks like a fun red. The votivo red current candle is a favorite and so much more reasonable than most. I absolutely love the Chanel Le Rouge Duo in bright raspberry. It stays on with a mask and doesn’t dry out like most long-wear lippies. Love these earrings from Sundance they are dainty but with a big color punch. I have a similar pair. Sundance makes the best turtlenecks that don’t wear out and this one is no exception with pretty detailing. I would love a pair of red Wayfarers how about you?
