Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Via Bon Appetit.

Hey, friends!

I know we've been sporadic about posting updates lately, but as usual, things got really busy all of a sudden! It's funny how you'll have, like, months of downtime and then all of a sudden, it's BAM. Go, go, go. When it rains, it pours, I guess. Does that ever happen to you?

Anyway, I am glad tomorrow is Thanksgiving and we'll have a nice long weekend to hang and relax. Are you doing anything fun for the holiday or traveling anywhere?

I will be heading up to Rhode Island tonight to spend it with good friends, so I'm excited about baking this Bourbon Pecan Pie with Dark Chocolate. If it comes out decent looking, I'll probably post it on Instagram later so stay tuned for that. Rhode Island is totally my dream place for long and cold weekends, so I'm pretty excited. Packing my flannel, rolling pin and one of the many books I have started and not yet finished. We'll see how that goes. ;)

In the meantime, since you'll probably spend the weekend lounging and enjoying leftovers, here are some fun links to check out.

Thanksgiving recipes to please everyone's diets.

Turkey leftovers done right.

Important! Skip Black Friday this year and instead, support Small Business Saturday.

Have you ever heard Debbie Millman's podcast, Design Matters? It's a favorite of mine, and if you haven't heard it yet, here's a good place to start. Good for a road trip if you're planning to drive this weekend.

Marion Cotillard is totally swoon worthy in this Dior video. So is the house!

Gorgeous film with a very limited release so try to catch it if you can!

This is kinda gross but still oddly appealing.

One word: adorable.

Cool gifts under $50 from my favorite online store, curated by the one and only Lizzie Garrett.

A bunch of awesome movies are coming to Netflix this December. I can't wait to hibernate.

Clare Elsaesser is my current favorite Etsy seller. Want, want, want!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm getting married. :)

Hey, friends! Guess who? It's me, Karina! The other Cifuentes sister. Lisa has been posting some amazing things lately so she really inspired me to get back to it. And as she has mentioned, I recently got engaged. :) I feel incredibly excited and cannot wait for the day to come. We have less than a year (we are getting married next fall) and have already checked off some important items from our "to do" list (venue, photographer, and DJ.) I'm looking forward to cruising over the holidays since once we get back from the festivities, we will be in full swing planning mode. 

I'm still learning to navigate the wedding world terrain as it's incredibly vast (!) but I think I'm starting to get the hang of it. I now have a few resources that have become my go-to's and I'd like to share them with any new brides out there. And if I'm missing any important ones, would love to know!

Dreamy weekend in Granada

Karina, Me, Nick, Sadie.

This past weekend, Karina and I flew down to Granada, Nicaragua to attend the wedding of our dear friends, Magaly and Aaron. As expected, it was a beautiful wedding weekend filled with plenty of sun, good friends, dancing, and lots of love. It was our first time in Nicaragua and we had a blast, so we put together a small little list of stuff to do, if you ever make it down there.
