WHITE ON WHITE

I shared my obsession for all white everything here and this will not be the last you see of it.  Because this skirt and these shoes and I LOVE ALL WHITE ALL YEAR LONG!  Same same? And can you even believe that we’re creeping up on the end of August?  I can’t!!!!  But I am looking forward to mixing it up with a Fall wardrobe and may or may not have already started adding Fall/Winter pieces to the closet.  Better than procrastination?!    Carry on with your Tuesdays my friends, until mañana!  xx- Sarah

Friday Foodie Links

Cashew_yogurt_04

Happy Friday my friends!  How is your #EatCleanAugust going?!  I need updates please!  Are you still with me?  I fell off the wagon for my birthday.  Ok toppled off it and landed in a pile of birthday cinnamon rolls and chocolate chip cookies.  And pizza.  And burrata with grilled peaches.  Yes, it was a wildly delicious fall!  But I came crawling back to my clean eating the next day, happy and full and ready to get back to healthy, whole foods.  I’m trying to share my prettiest meals on my Instagram to keep you inspired!  But I need some help, there’s two weeks left and I need to know at least some of you are still with me!  It’s kept me motivated knowing that I’m accountable to all of you, so thank you for that.  So please, tell me if you will, how is it going on your end?!  Details por favor!!!  Have a great weekend everyone!!  xx- Sarah

Cadillac Road to Table- Adventures in Philly!

Cadillac_road_to_table_a_house_in_the_hills_06

Cadillac recently paired up with Saveur Magazine to host a culinary experience, Road to Table in select cities across the US.  And when they asked if I’d like to come to Philly to attend one of them I couldn’t book my ticket fast enough!  A chance to combine my love of travel, amazing food and luxury?  YES PLEASE!  The evening started out at 2424 Studios where we had cocktails and tasty tray passed appetizers, setting the tone for an evening of fun ahead!  Then we were off  for a test drive in the sporty Cadillac CTS.  The car was comfortable, boasted  all the latest technologies and offered such a smooth ride- I was thoroughly impressed by Cadillac once again!  The test drive ended at Sbraga, the Philadelphia restaurant owned by Top Chef Season 7 winner Kevin Sbraga.  I am such a huge fan of Top Chef so it was especially exciting to see Kevin in action!  He and his team prepared an incredible four course meal that started with a fluke crudo that I’m still thinking about.

This post is in partnership with Cadillac

Each course had a wine pairing that perfectly complemented Sbraga’s flavorful dishes and brought a sense of festivity to the event.  The ambience in Sbraga also set the tone for the evening- intimate and cozy, it was easy to settle into the experience and let the outside world slip away.  Midway through the meal Saveur Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief James Oseland welcomed us all to the event and introduced Chef Sbraga who spoke to us about the menu, the inspiration and his restaurant.  There’s something so great about hearing a chef talk about food, I could listen for days!  Sbraga’s food values are similar to mine- he appreciates local, sustainable, seasonal ingredients and uses them as inspiration for his imaginative dishes.  The evening ended with dessert and coffee at 2424 Studios, and they sent us on our way happy, full of goodness and a little bit glowy from a great night. Thank you so much Cadillac and Saveur for such a magical evening!
