Why is it called a Peach Bellini?

In 1948, the first Bellini was created in Harry’s Bar in Venice, Italy. The bar was a hot spot for celebrities of the day such as Humphrey Bogart, Truman Capote, and Ernest Hemingway.

According to the legend of the drink, the hue of the peach puree reminded him of the work of a local famous painter, 15th-century Venetian artist Giovani Bellini, and the drink spread all over the world from there.

How to Organize and Store Your Christmas Decor

The holiday season is always my favorite time of the year—I love all the glitter and lights and garlands. But the house always feels a little extra boring once I take all that down.

Here are some easy tips to make packing (and then unpacking!) your holiday decor a breeze!

M&M Cookies – A Beautiful Mess

If you are looking for a classic cookie recipe with just a little bit more going on than your average chocolate chip cookie, you should bake this M&M cookie recipe.

These cookies are soft and chewy with a little crunch and chocolate from the M&M candies. I used all white chocolate M&Ms, but you could use other colors for holidays or other occasions, or swap them out for peanut M&Ms or other flavors.

This M&M cookie recipe is super simple and can be made in about 30 minutes or less. You could gift these or double this recipe and freeze the cookie dough to bake individually as you please, or have something in your freezer to pull out in case of surprise guests.

christmas cabana

We’re warm weather people all the way, so we thought it would be fun to do an anti-traditional tour of sorts in the cabana. Why? Because it’s been a rough couple of years, if we’re being completely honest. So here’s to celebrating however we want – and making all the little things festive. A Christmas Cabana tour today! 

{If you’re familiar with us, then you’ve seen this before. Maybe pretend you haven’t? Because I bet most haven’t, and this still makes us happy. Yes, I am officially dialing it in after a long few months and a cold… I’m ready to settle in for a long winter’s nap- either way, happy touring!} 

But honestly, I’d probably do it anyway. If the handmade hideaway isn’t safe…

I just couldn’t help myself.

This fun, colorful space was just begging for a tinsel tree and fun vintage-esque ornaments. 

And we couldn’t resist these
