| like the post + Let me just preface this by saying: this was SO easy. Like ridiculously easy. Anyone could throw this together in 15 minutes, no problem. Keep some sparkling wine, straws, canned champagne, & candies on hand so you have a quick backup plan.
Because there’s nothing better than a rosé chilled brunch with your girlfriends. Especially when champagne gummy bears & a table full of goodies are involved. It’s light & fresh and sets a very relaxing, Instagram-ish atmosphere.
Anyway, I wanted to share this rosé-heavy brunch I threw with The Glitter Guide because I feel like anyone can do this: looking for a baby shower theme? A girlfriend’s birthday? Or maybe just a cute brunch idea? Do this!
My main tip is no surprise: always set the mood with music / champagne scented candles / lighting, keep the rosé flowing, & have a cheese, cracker, & cornichon platter handy.
Cheese, cheese, cheese. Everyone loves cheese. It keeps the mood festive. Vegan lemon raspberry cheesecake gelato was for dessert ( get crazy & add a scoop of this to your champagne…! ).
For a more Instagramy setting, keep the table white or black. It gives …
I have some really devastating, shitty news. In fact, it’s the saddest news I’ve ever publicly shared on this blog.
My grandma, The Nanz, passed away four weeks ago.
As you can imagine the loss has not been easy on my family.
You guys know, she was my best friend. I spoke to her everyday, if not two or three times a day. We made a point to get together weekly.
If I’ve seemed distant, it’s because I am. If I’ve seemed distracted, it’s because I am. If I’ve seemed off, it’s because I am. I’ve been coping with a huge loss. In all honesty, it feels like a limb is gone.
Losing my grandma has been just…gut–wrenching.
I have not been ready to share this with anyone but today I woke up & was ready. Normally I would shy away from something so very personal, so close to my heart, but I feel like she was such a bright light on The Skinny Confidential that it’s unfair to keep her passing from you guys.
Besides, she was the biggest star of this blog.
My grandma’s passing took 8 painful weeks. So the …

I guess this means summer is OFFICIALLY over? Are you guys happy or sad about this?
I’m personally EXTREMELY excited we’re heading into fall. For me, fall means the scent of fall inspired potpourri, tons of time with family for the holidays, & constant Frank Sinatra playing in the house. Plus, fall style is just SO chic. There’s something edgy & bougie about colder weather clothes… Am I right??
My FAVORITE fall trend, is THE DUSTER. They’re very Kim K, don’t you think? Especially loving SATIN DUSTERS. They’re light, edgy, versatile, & BEYOND chic.
ONE: In the earlier months of fall, pair it with black jeans, boots, & a tank top for a casual vibe. This look is perfect for meeting friends for happy hour, a movie date night with your hubby, or just a casual night out in general.
TWO: Throw this satin duster over a blouse & slacks for a totally professional, business casual look. I love a good duster for the office.
