If you follow me on social media, you’ll know that I am obsessed with Mosaic since discovering it a few months ago. This nifty iPhone and Android app allows you to pull 20 images from your phone and turn them into a gorgeous photo book for just $20 plus $5 shipping that gets to delivered to your door in less than 4 days.
I am so addicted to creating these photo books that I have been gifting them to friends and family. This morning, I hosted an intimate breakfast for some of my favorite bloggers and editors at the SoHo House in the Meatpacking District to celebrate Father’s Day and kick off the summer travel season.
Thanks to Hollywood Pop, a full-service event/party planning company that offers clients a comprehensive selection of entertainment and services, they transformed the fourth floor dining room of the SoHo House into a beautiful Father’s Day/Summer themed room with sea shells, intimate lightning, beautiful hydrangeas and a pop of color via turquoise tableware and dishware. It was as if summer was calling….well it was.
Our guests noshed on avocado toast (a SoHo House favorite), Ham, cream spinach, pesto and eggs as well as breakfast pastries. Of course it wouldn’t be breakfast without mimosas. My fellow co-host Lara and I then walked the editors through our favorite gifts to give dad this Father’s Day and must-have items for summer travel.
Since Mosaic is all about making special moments worth capturing, our top picks for Father’s Day includes capturing your fondest memories of dad into an elegant mosaic book that he’ll love to show off all year round. Since both our dads need their morning cup o’ Joe to get up in the morning, a year’s supply of Lavazza Specialty Drip coffee and a set of mugs are a must — since what better way to catch up with dad on all of those life moments then over coffee? And because Dad only deserves the best how about giving him a new cologne and bath products he’s sure to love. We love L’Occitane’s CADE EDT fragrance ($55) and their Limited Edition Pebble Soaps Set ($24).
One of the best things about the summer is Friday office hours and saved vacation days. For those impromptu beach trips and weekend jaunts with friends, LeSportsac fun, colorful and printed weekender bags and totes that is just what mom needs. Which is why a patterned LeSportsac Weekender bag is the perfect tag along to hold all you will need for last minute trips. What I love about the LeSportsac weekender is that it comes with a little pouch for makeup, toiletries and little odds and ends. I have a few of these that I use to carry my airplane sized products with me.
Summer is all about traveling light, our perfect ensemble for the train, plane or automobile is a pair of printed leggings from Brooklyn-based clothing company 20Legz, which sells fashion forward leggings for just $20 plus $5 shipping. Of course you can’t forget to capture all your favorite moments from your trip without a Mosaic photo book.
