I am SO EXCITED to announce a collaboration with my dear friend Angelina Danae from Sampled. Angelina and I met a little over a year and half ago and we immediately bonded over the important things in life like crafts, wine, books, and the Bachelor.
When she is not writing killer copy for companies, she runs an amazing blog called Sampled where she intertwines her life experiences with recipes she is using at the time. She is the reason why I now LOVE hummus and the only person who I complicity trust with everything she makes. Except if it includes pickles; I still will never like pickles.
That is why, as I listened to Being Boss's podcast, "Collaborate Like a Boss", I immediately thought of how cool it would be to team up with Angelina to create four seasonally curated dining experiences. With Angelina's love for all things food and my love for hosting and party planning, it seemed like the perfect fit. Thankfully she thought so too! So here is the rundown: Angelina is in charge of all things food which includes planning the menu, creating recipes, and making the evening meal. Then I will curate the aesthetics for presenting Angelina's delicious meal and design the overall theme, menus, decor, and even include some diy's.
Over the years I've come to realize how important it is to break bread with others and thankfully Angelina shares that sentiment. In fact some of my favorite moments with Angelina have been making a meal together - ok her mostly making the meal - sitting down with a bottle of wine, eating, and talking to our heart's content. Full stomachs and full hearts. It really doesn't get much better than that and that is exactly what we want to help others create for themselves. This isn't an attempt to add to our crazy "Instagram worthy" driven world but to simply show you how you too can create something beautiful and special with the little that you have.
