HOME-SPIRATION: Desk Spaces

Today is a big day, I am starting my job as a Product Coordinator for Michael Kors Watches at Fossil! I would say this is my first day of work, but technically I have worked at Fossil for 8 months over the past year so my first day jitters are at a low (but apparent) murmur. I am very excited to finally have a desk! This might sound like the most absurd thing to be excited about, but when you have been an intern FIVE different times, and you have been shoved in every corner and random space, you would know how great it is to have a desk! Here are some of my favorite stylish desk inspirations for my first day of work! Hopefully one day soon I will have a home office or desk that is as style as these spaces!

Well hello... now we all know this will be my background! A girl can not have too many monograms.

I love the idea of these cactus... but I know all the clutter that is usually on my desk would not go well with these prickly plants

REINCARNATION: Kitchen Island Carts

David and I love to eat. I mean who doesn’t? But what we really love to do is cook. We usually cook dinner together every night, which is a great bonding and catching up time, but we need more counter space (desperately!) So we are thinking about getting a kitchen island cart to add extra storage and much needed counter space for all the fun we have in the kitchen! Ours will be pulling double duty as a kitchen island and a breakfast table for the two of us! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for kitchen island carts and a few of the front runners in our search!

Great hiding spot for these chic trash cans! Or maybe fill them with dog food (for those puppy friendly homes)!

HOME-SPIRATION: Built-Ins

So many new homes being built these days do not have built-ins! They really make any room look like a custom living space, plus they provide amazing storage! As long as you don’t get something too trendy I feel like built-ins are an amazing addition to any living space! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images of built ins and all my favorite ways to show that they really can be versatile!

ENTERTAINING: Wine Tasting 101

Well we all know I love vineyards, wines, and wine tastings! I can not wait to one day have a wine tasting with all of my friend! To follow up on my wine and cheese pairing posts, here are a few tips and pointers on how to throw an amazing wine tasting for you and your friends!

A wine flight party is a quick and easy way to make a fun wine night! Pick a variety of wines (whites, reds, sparklings... whatever the crowd enjoys) and pour everyone a taste, have cards set up to explain the different wines, and always have extra bottles on hand so people have pick their favorite and a full glass (... or two!)

A wine and cheese buffet is perfect for a casual get together, book club night, or appetizers before a dinner party! Set out a variety of wines and pair them up with different cheeses, chocolates, and olives. Add some great crackers and crusty baguette and you have yourself a great happy hour!

This is my favorite idea for a wine tasting party! If you have friends that really know their wines try this out! Take a few of your favorite bottles of wine and cover the labels, and number them. Then have corresponding cards describing the wine and mark those with letters. Have your guests try all the wines and guess which one is which! Definitely a great way to start a night full of wine drinking! I am going to try this soon!

Dinner and wine party is always a great idea! I love the idea of having cutting boards full of cheese as center pieces (of course edible center pieces!) It might take a little bit of extra work but you can create a menu and pair wines with each course! Have notes or a menu prepared for each guest so they know more about the dish and the wine being served! Love.
