With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner {literally!}, it’s time to start thinking of gifts for your hosts and hostesses. Putting on a dinner or party is a lot of work and it’s a kind gesture to bring a gift to your host, no matter how small. Sometimes I get stuck on gifts such as these because it can all depend on how well you know the person hosting and how much you are willing to spend. I’ve curated a selection of gifts anywhere from $5-150. Sure a bottle of wine is always nice, but when thinking of a hostess gift, I like to pick an item that would make a great addition to the person’s home. There are a million and one things to choose from and so I have done some of the work for you. Worst case scenario, you can never go wrong with a festive wreath or a beautiful throw! Here’s my gift guide for the hostess with the mostest!

Our Weekend Getaway to Lake Arrowhead

November 16, 2017

Our Weekend Getaway to Lake Arrowhead | M Loves M -@marmarIt already feels like ages ago, but remember when we took a trip to Lake Arrowhead the other week? Matthew and I ended up planning this little getaway after chatting in the car one day about how we were both fed up with our 90 degree heatwave and “remember when we went to Portugal?” We decided to address the need for a little getaway while planning a trip to a cooler weather spot. We couldn’t go far so we ended up on Lake Arrowhead. Can you believe I’ve never been? I know, how is that possible? I grew up in Los Angeles and Arrowhead is just an hour and a half away. You’d think it would be the perfect weekend getaway. Growing up we went to another lake town though that was closer to our family in the Bay Area.

Matthew and I had such a great weekend in Arrowhead and we immediately vowed we’d be back very very soon. I’m so excited that we have a somewhat local spot to take Augustine. Here are some photos and stories from our weekend getaway to Lake Arrowhead, along with some food spots we loved!VIEW POST

The Soup I’ve Made Twice in the Past Week

November 15, 2017

The Soup I've Made Twice in the Past Week - M Loves M @marmarOnce it begins to cool down and we have cloudy days, all I seem to crave is soup, soup, and more soup! I came across two really delicious looking White Bean and Kale Soup recipes and decided to combine both, taking what I liked from each, and adding other things we had in the fridge and pantry. I really think this is the best white bean and kale soup I’ve ever made! I can tell it’s as good as I think it is because Augustine devoured the bowl I made for him. Naturally, I had to make more and share with you guys, especially after all the requests on Instagram. So now this has become the soup I’ve made twice in the past week, and I just bought fresh cannellini beans to make more! I can’t wait for you to try it!VIEW POST
