hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

This Fab Find is kind of silly, but is truly knock-your-socks-off delicious.
Many of you grow your own veggies and may be looking for something to do with all those ripe tomatoes and cucumbers, or many of you, like me, may hit up your local roadside stand to help them get rid of all those ripe tomatoes and cucumbers. This recipe from my mother-in-law is so simple, but I managed to cut and eat 5 tomatoes and 3 big cucumbers in 2 days because of it. Are you ready? Here it is:
Just add enough blush wine vinaigrette (I used Brianna’s which is to die for, but any blush wine vinaigrette will do) to cover the veggies and let marinate a few hours in the fridge. And voila! A refreshing, delicious salad to enjoy on these last few summer evenings….or afternoons. Probably most of you won’t eat it in the morning like I did. Enjoy!
Also, we have a winner of the Salvatori Photography giveaway:
Congratulations, Amy Z!
Just email us, Amy, and we’ll hook you up with Stacy so you can schedule your “momography” tutorial (no, that’s not mamography, for those of you who were wondering. Do you really think we’d give away one of those?!! True, it could save your life, but really….).
And finally, announcing….
Come back next week to get yourself in the back-to-school spirit!
Have a  FABULOUS weekend!
