Birthday Wishlist

It’s birthday week here at Hello Little Home, and what would a birthday be without a wishlist?

I love making a birthday wishlist every year. It’s mostly just for fun, and maybe to give my husband an idea or two. ;)

This year, my list is heavily influenced by spring, which currently seems like it’s never going to arrive! So I’m dreaming of bright colors and sandals, plus a few crafting and cooking things that will keep me happy indoors in the meantime!

I love all things French and Parisian. My husband and I took a trip to Paris a couple years ago, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. Unfortunately, I don’t have any immediate plans to return ( a girl can dream though), so I decided to bring a little France to my home and created a French birthday theme.

Today, I’m sharing an easy croquembouche recipe, plus some easy French themed food ideas. And later this week, I have a some decorating ideas and party printables for you!

Best of the Weekend

Hey, friends! Welcome to another Best of the Weekend!

I had the best week. My sister and niece were visiting, and we had so much fun! We did a little of everything: Chinese in Flushing, walking the High Line, lots of catching up, and the Natural History Museum, to name a few.

We also took a road trip to visit my aunt in New Hampshire, and it was quite the day. Our rental car broke down before we even left NYC, and apparently, long car rides and toddlers don’t mix … who knew? ;) It was great seeing my aunt though.

Anyway, thank you so much for stopping by today! I can’t wait to check out your amazing posts!

Raspberry Chocoholic Smoothie

Do you ever feel like your days pass by before you’ve had a chance to stop and enjoy them? I know I sometimes do. Time just goes by so quickly. I mean, how is March almost over already?!?

Lately, I’ve been trying to step away from the computer, turn off my phone, and pause my day for a “Me Moment.” Even a few minutes are enough to recharge me before I start the next task on my never-ending to do list.

These moments are the perfect time to read a few pages of a book or enjoy a small indulgence, like this amazing Raspberry Chocoholic Smoothie!

How to Wear Flared Jeans

As much as I love my skinny jeans, I also like to change things up every now and then. Which is why I was excited to see that flared jeans are back on trend!

Flared jeans are super flattering … hello, curves and long legs! They look great with a variety of shoes, and with leg widths ranging from mini-boot cuts to exagerated bells, there’s a pair for everyone.

Not sure how to wear flared jeans? Here are some tips:

  • Length is important, so choose a pair based on whether you plan to wear it with heels or flats. Floor-skimming hems (1/2-inch from the ground) look best and will give you legs that never seem to end. Get them hemmed, if needed.
  • Dark washes are very slimming and easy to dress up, while lighter washes are more casual.
  • High waists, larger flares, and light washes add to the retro vibe of this style. Play it up with platform shoes and slim-fitting tops (maybe tucked in).
  • I love, love, love flared jeans with wedge sandals … it’s just so seventies chic! But try dressing them up with heels for a night out or dressing them down with sandals, slip-ons, or sneakers, too.
  • Look for tops that skim or drape over your body.
