ROUNDUP :: THE SUMMER PONCHO

the daybook tunic and jeans

It may seem a bit ridiculous to some to be planning my summer wardrobe already, but lately I’ve been on a major wardrobe overhaul. Tweaking and refining my style to suit life as it is now… not life as it was 4 years ago. My only problem is that I live in a city that’s […]

CASS’ KITCHEN :: WATERMELON + COCONUT CRÈME

watermelon and coconut creme recipe cocokelley1

If you’ve been following my adventures the last few days, you know that I’ve been touring around through the Okanagan Valley in B.C. and by touring I mean eating and drinking to my heart (and belly’s) content.  I can’t wait to share more from the trip with you all (soon soon!) but in the meantime, […]

HOUSE TOUR :: A WHARF WEEKEND GETAWAY

3.nocrop.w1800.h1330

I can hardly believe it’s nearly Labor Day weekend. The true mark of the end of summer, I’m determined to make it count, so we’ve been hunting around a bit for last-minute cabins and weekend getaway spots that we can at least take a little day trip to. But if I were on the east […]

    Love it! kitchenette – (1) countertop surface? is it zinc? (2) compact stove – searching for one for guest house and reading mixed reviews for some brands- what company makes the stove? Thanks so much!

      Kathy – I have no idea to either question! If it doesn’t tell me in the article, we’re both outta luck. You can try and see if you can get more info from the original article (linked to in the post) or from the designer? Thanks!

SAY ‘BON VOYAGE’ TO SUMMER WITH AN OVERBOARD NAUTICAL PARTY

coco kelley bon voyage to summer party1

The sad truth about this summer is a) it went entirely too fast and b) I spent far too little of it on a boat. Which may explain why I felt the need to bid the sunshine goodbye with an over-the-top nautical party. It also may have had something to do with my obsession with bejeweled life-size […]

    I love the overboard (no pun intended)!! theme of this party x
    Those bejewelled lobsters are so cute and the nautical flags do make a great graphic on the invites!
    It looks like fun! I hope there were no men overboard!!

    I am old enough to remember “Overboard” and many of its predecessors!!! That was a greatly fun movie, and yes…I can totally imagine Goldie’s character dining in this fashion aboard her yacht! Heck…I can see ME dining aboard my imaginary yacht!!! :-)

    I really like the mix of colors and textures on this table, as well as the “bling” that abounds!!! My kind of table!!! That anchor is perfect, too, as a part of the centerpiece! The invitations are top notch, bar none!!! And the fanciful straws just take the cake. If you’re gonna do it, DO IT…right??!??!

    VERY cool! The ultimate in posh nautical!

CASS’ KITCHEN :: SUMMER WATERMELON SALAD

summer watermelon salad recipe cocokelley3

Some of us are blessed with the ability to open the fridge, pull out a few ingredients and whip up something decently (or sometimes surprisingly!) tasty. Growing up with a chef for a father, I’d like to think that I inherited a bit of this ability. And it seems – judging by requests on instagram when I […]

    Love this salad. Looks delicious. I make a similar one with black olives in place of the blackberries. The salt in the olives compliments the watermelon well.

    I’m reall into watermelon at the moment!
    As I live in italy its so hot and watermelon is so refreshing!
    This combination looks amazing with the feta and mint. I don’t know if I can get blackberries where I am, is there another berry that would work well?
    Many thanks!
