Tommaso's B'day Party II

Posted on June 29, 2016 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

Ahoy!
I'm just looking at these pictures and thinking what a special afternoon we spent together... and the food homemade by le due "nonne" was delicious!  It was all half Spanish, half Italian, great Mediterranean combination, just the same as the b'day boy ;)

So, here you have the details of the event, enjoy yourself and get all the inspiration for your Summer celebrations.
 


 


**Our Kilner Drink Dispenser couldn't not be in the bday party! 🍹 It's a must have for any celebration and very refreshing for this Summer time☀

We served strawberry lemonade.The tastiest way to cool down! You can try to do the recipe we prepared that day (attached below- you're welcome).



All natural Strawberry Lemonade
  • 8 large strawberries, halved
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 7 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
1. Place strawberries in a blender; top with 2 tablespoons sugar. Pour 1 cup water over sugared strawberries. Blend until strawberry chunks transform into juice.

2. Combine strawberry juice, 6 cups water, 1 cup sugar, and lemon juice in a large pitcher; stir until blended. Chill before serving. Et voilà!
Cheers!!!

Tommaso's Bday Party

Posted on June 22, 2016 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

So here we are again...I promised you some pictures from our little sailor b'day party and here there are. Babies' First birthdays are a real milestone, definitely a big celebration for the parents as much as the baby. We enjoy celebrating so this was the perfect occasion to do something special.

We got most of the inspiration from Pinterest, where else?! Summer partynautical theme decorated with boats, flags, anchors and stripes, lots of stripes... If you do a celebration and you choose a motif, you need to stick to a selection of colours. In this case the colours chosen where red, white, navy blue and azure.

All the bakery (cake, cookies and cupcakes) was made by Elisa Piticaru, she really hit the spot, everything was delicious. I told her what I wanted and she just did it exactly.

I had on my mind that the cake table should  have been the most important place in the party, where Tommaso could have sit to enjoy all the attention received in his very own day.  

I will finish to post the pictures in the next newsletter (I've done a small selection but I didn't want to overwhelmed you with a lot all at once). Hope you enjoy it and if you have any questions just email me to hello@anahicollection.com

 

     

Summer officially started yesterday. Have you decided where to spend your summer holidays? We haven't, but we are dreaming of the sea anywhere in Italy... Any suggestions are always welcomed.
You are still on time to get some of our summer essentials if you haven't yet...!

From Italy with love,

Happy bday to us

Well HELLO, HELLO!
It's a long long time that I've been missing this...Hope you too! This time it's a special occasion and I really wanted to share with you a piece of our lives. It's been the hardest but the most beautiful year and that's one of the reasons why I had our weekly newsletter a bit abandoned.

A week ago our little baby boy Tommaso turned ONE and as you can imagine it's been all very exciting! We wanted to do something special and thought about organizing a birthday party with our closest friends and family. As it's almost summer the nautical inspiration was perfect. 

Here's a picture as a preview but I will post more images in the next newsletters. Hope you like it. Ahoy!

Another big thing that I wanted to share with you is that we've just opened a new section with Baby stuff in our shop! And to celebrate it there will be a 20% discount OFF in all orders until the start of the Summer, next Tuesday 21st June (included) Don't forget to add the code at the end of the purchase:  Happybdaytous 

It's already two years that we're ONLINE!!! Thanks to you :)

Wishful thinking

Posted on January 17, 2016 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

Μay you take a leap forward this Νew Year, take on new adventures, step on new roads that yοu can explore, achieve new heights...

It's been a loooong time that I haven't writen a post here (so sorry if you missed me), basically since I became a mom last summer. You all know how it is. Then we've changed home, language and country! Oh, and if it wasn't enough I did 30 paintings for an art exhibition in Madrid and a couple of photography sessions. Pretty proud of myself, let's say it (clap, clap).

But now that we're back from Christmas and we've spent treasured moments with family and friends, let's have some wishful thinking for the year that has already started.

All I can think at the moment is related with white, wood, chimney, candles and blankets. Alpine inspiration so appropriate for this time of the year.

These products are the perfect combination to create that cosy winter atmosphere we're all dreaming about. 

 

 

Dοn’t bring your 2015 issues into 2016. Ηave a new mind set to do new things for the Νew year. Cheers tο the new Υear. Μay it be a memorable one. Happy Νew Υear :)

Time flies, can you believe we are in June already! And because of this I'm going to give you some inspiring ideas for a summer garden party, just a few tips to create the ambience you'd love to have in your outdoors.
  1. Fruity Snacks - the perfect alfresco treat
  2. Basket of blankets - when the sun goes down...
  3. Drinks on taps - Homemade lemonade or Pimms o'clock!
  4. Lighting atmosphere - candles forever

Mellow Mood

Posted on May 28, 2015 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

The weather has been so nice lately. You can feel the warm temperatures and see the sun shining for long hours every day. Anticipated summer colours put everyone in a mellow mood. 

  


Pops of yellow are becoming increasingly popular for interiors. Yellow is a colour of many meanings. It is the warmth of the sun and the renewal we see in the first flowers of spring... 

When writing to his sister in 1888, Vincent van Gogh wrote, “
The sun, a light that for lack of a better word I can only call yellow, bright sulfur yellow, pale lemon gold. How beautiful yellow is!”.



The energetic, sunny and optimistic hue is one of trickiest colors to use in interiors, let's discover the love affair with yellow, together!

  


What is your take on yellow in interiors?

My Dream Bathroom

Posted on May 18, 2015 by ANAHI RODRIGUEZ | 0 Comments

Designing your dream bathroom calls for careful space planning, considering your needs and a sophisticated mix of materials, textures and proper lighting. I have an idea very clear in my head of how it would be my dream one.

 

 

 

 
 
Those are the essentials pieces I'd love to have in my dream bathroom:
- Beautiful tiles
- Bathtub with legs
- Wooden accessories
- Old style taps

- Green plants

Then I'd add my Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Pearl Essence Soothing Pearl Bath Soak, light some candles with relaxing music and probably a glass of bubbles... et voilà!
 
Unfortunately we can just help you with these accessories:

 
Genuinely "Out of Africa", these deliciously colourful two sided Kikoy towelsare handmade in Kenya. A really versatile accessory with one side is made from a super soft towelling and the other from a finely woven cotton. This means you can wrap the towel round you as a cover-up in the gym, spa or wherever you find yourself enjoying a bath time...!

 

The Love Candle Set comes in 3 separate colourways. Each set has 3 different "love messages" - part cheeky and part serious for lighting those special moments.



From London with love,
Anahí
