Ode to Summer from ANAIS & DAX + A Recipe for Steamed Clams

We're mid-july and, despite the high temperatures outside, it still hasn't really hit me that summer's here. I think it's safe to blame this on a serious lack of beach time. And after setting sights on this seasonal shoot, from ANAIS & DAX, I'm thinking this needs to be rectified immediately, if not sooner. A wool blanket, some fresh seafood and a group of good friends? I'm in!

A Kate Spade Inspired Picnic Round-Up

Spring is in the air. Well sort of. It's still kind of dreary and overcast here in Boston. But (queue the "I'm digging deep and maintaining a positive attitude" music), our tulips are poking through, the strawberries are starting to show signs of life and simply saying the word May has me all kinds of school-girl giddy. So when I spotted...

Outstanding in the Field with Anais + Dax

Al Fresco Picnic from Cmostr Photography

Though it's quite possible I'm getting ahead of myself, I can't help but feel that Spring is in the air.

Winter Picnic + Chicken Pot Pies

When I originally set eyes on this fabulous shoot I let out an audible gasp. Beautifully captured by Jen Huang and styled by Poppies and Posies, this gorgeous winter feast has quickly become my new favourite idea.

Apple Picking Party

Here in New England, it's peak apple picking season. In fact, this is the year's busiest day for all of those apple farms that have spent months growing their perfect red beauties. At least according to my friend Kristen. Our family has no less than six big bags of apples sitting on our counter as we speak and aside from making apple butter and pies galore, we thought it might be fun to have an apple picking party. Not in the fields, but in the comfort of our own backyard where we can put all of...
