Hi Guys! I am so excited to share one of the finished videos from our big two day video shoot last month with Popsugar and Electrolux. Filming is one of my favorite parts of blogging I love creating video content! Below are a few behind the scenes pics and you can watch our first video!
Testing lighting for our Q&A and voice overs.
This was half our set crew! Definitely one of the funnest groups I’ve worked with! Everyone was so amazing!
Happy Sunday guys! For some reason this week it really hit me that summer is almost over, I seriously can’t believe how quickly it has flown by! The kids are starting school this week so we have been trying to savor ever last bit of summer, especially the BBQ weather. Below are 5 great recipes for the perfect end of summer backyard barbecue.

SPARKLING RASPBERRY LEMONADE
| Makes: 6 Serving|
12 oz fresh raspberries
1 cup fresh lemon juice, chilled
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup granulated sugar (or to taste)
1/2 cup honey
1 liter (33.8 oz) sparkling water or club soda, chilled
Fresh mint and ice, for serving
Place raspberries in a food processor and pulse until well pureed. Force raspberry puree through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl.
In a large pitcher (if you don’t have one large enough you may need two) whisk together water and sugar until sugar has dissolved. Pour in honey and mix until blended. Stir in raspberry mixture and lemon juice then pour in club soda and stir once. Serve with ice and fresh mint.

HONEY CHIPOTLE BBQ CHICKEN
| Makes: 4-6 serving |
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts
Black and white doesn’t mean boring. It’s hands down the most timeless color combo and one that will never go out of style and it’s the perfect simple, understated look to add a bright, bold pump to. 😉
I love finding statement pieces in black or white because I know it’s something I’ll be able to wear forever and pair with anything. Knotted details are taking over right now from knotted sleeves to knotted dresses and hems and I’m obsessed! I love a crop length top with an oversized knot (how pretty is this chambray one!). Show some skin for date night or pair it with a high-waisted pencil skirt or trouser to make it office appropriate. It’s such a fresh silhouette that’s current, classic and so sophisticated! I also love the knotted back detail on this one and this off the shoulder is so good!
