Happy 2015 everyone! I thought I’d start the year off with one scene from an editorial I shot with Jose Villa for at Flutter Mag. As part of our Glamping story, published in the spring issue, I art directed this fun scene of the models playing a game of cards. We picked a spot just across from the cabins at El Capitan Canyon and I styled the scene with a cute deck of cards and a carafe of Foley rose wine with strawberries and raspberries for color. I pulled wardrobe from Bonita and Dressed/Ready and was going for a casual, elegant camping vibe. There’s tons more pretty from this shoot so stay tuned!

Happy 2013 Santa Barbara Chic readers! It’s great to kick off a New Year with one of my favorite concoctions — sangria! As I’ve said before, it’s a bit difficult to give an exact recipe because every sangria is different, and you should taste as you go adding more or less of your favorite ingredients. This winter-inspired guava sangria with a hint of sage is sure to impress. Enjoy!
Isn’t it so pretty?! I love the vibrant colors of the cranberries and sage together… And the fresh guavas (from Kelly’s humongous guava tree in her front yard) add such a lovely tropical flavor.
1 bottle of rose wine
1/2 cup cognac
1/2 cup pureed guava or any other type of tropical fruit
1/2 cup pear juice
1/2 cup cranberry juice
1 cup sprite
Thinly sliced orange spheres
Boiled and strained cranberries
*Add all ingredients in a pitcher, tasting as you go. Set fresh sage aside and serve as a garnish for each glass to achieve a hint of sage flavor in your sangria– sage can be quite potent (do not add it in the pitcher). Serve on the rocks.
