5 gorgeous homes in Newport Beach

A vintage 1912 beachfront cottage 
that offers the best of this century and last, 
with priceless views of the Pacific.

With school starting this week, a few of us moms that are on the Newport Harbor Home andGarden Tour committee are already at work scouting out new homes for the next home tour in May. 

Don't think it's all hard work and no play, this group is creative, hard-working and fun! And even though we are all volunteers, we take our roles seriously. 

If you haven't been on the tour, check out our website here for all the details. Here are five of our gorgeous homes from last year.

A traditional seaside inspired home influenced by the style of Nantucket.

A modern, industrial style home

 with the feel of a mountain resort.


A blend of custom contemporary and “timeless” French provincial.

An eastern seaboard-style home 

with an elegant California beach vibe.

Which one’s your favorite?

all veggie chopped salad for Labor Day

I am off to buy all the fresh veggies for
this chopped salad recipe that I’ll be making
for our Labor Day block party.

It’s so yummy, healthy and refreshing!

This recipe is originally from Martha Stewart.
I found it years ago, and make it
very often for various summer parties.

It's perfect for a picnic or beach party too!

Recipe found here.

ciao! fabiana
