Before I introduce today's guest...a little update on Rue! Yesterday we photographed the most beautiful home where the walls were moody and the decor, vintage with hints of modern Scandinavian accents...in short, a look right up my alley! I have a feeling you are really going to love this one! Today's shoot will be a little different in nature, so I won't share too much, but we're working with a designer I've been dying to meet! Needless to say, I'm thrilled! And now, here's the lovely Helena of A Diary of Lovely, to share what summer means to her...and some really sweet word!
Hi all, this is Helena from A Diary of Lovely and I'm beyond excited to be here covering for the gorgeous Crystal while she's in sunny Cali preparing a feast for our eyes...yes, that's the first Rue issue. I can't wait, and I bet you feel the same way! Thank you Crystal for trusting me a bit with Plush Palate. So, what does summer mean to me? Carefree moments of sun, sea, friends, and family. Good food and endless sunsets. Pink bougainvilleas and little white and blue islands with paved streets.
A Greek taverna to enjoy ripe tomatoe salads with views of the Acropolis in.
The old Greek dolce vita, the glamour of the titans enjoying the same way we all enjoy now.
Summer for me is the moment to live everything we can't during the rest of the year. Live to the maximum, make dreams reality, enjoy the friends and family we might not see the rest of the year. Summer is beautiful freedom. Thank you again Crystal!
