Five Things I am Loving Now

1. Alpine Meadow scented Acquiesse Portfolio Collection Candle, described as "a mix of dewy grass, wild fruit, alpine floral, mountain pepper, balsam fir, wood and light musk." 

Available from Candle Delerium, $10-$50

2. Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Salad with fresh tomato and basil from the garden! 

3. Project Gadabout, a "guide to living a whimsical, flamboyant, sophisticated, slightly irrelevant and dashing way of life." Visit Project Gadabout to learn how to make fun cocktails, like a Pink Lady, Lime Rickey, Lemon Chiffon Pie and Cinnamon Toast. Written by Poppy Harlow Darlington (Isn't that a great pen name!), Project Gadabout covers everything from fashion tips to how to survive the 9-5 blues. 

4. Blair Eadie features photos of her incredible ensembles and sense of style on Atlantic- Pacific. Loving her creative layering, fearless use of color and stacked bracelets! The East Coast native moved to San Francisco last year (hence, the name Atlantic-Pacific) and is a fashion merchandiser for Gap by day. You may recognize her growing reputation in the fashion world- She was recently in the September issue Vogue as a Fashion Influencer and won of Polyvore's Most-Coveted Closet  blogger award.


5. Fresh Lavender's soothing scent is said to bring about relaxation and sleep. It also can be used to heal insect bites and relieve headaches. It's also used in cooking as a cake decoration, in herbal tea and scones.
