Have you seen the great things that JCPenny has been doing? First it was Pearl by Georgina Chapman of Marchesa now Jonathan Adler also has a collection called Happy Chic. This collection is signature Adler, bright colors, Greek keys and bulbous vases and lamps. I currently have my eye on that rug (it comes in a variety of colors) and that dresser. You should head on over and check it out!
Are you like me in that if you open Pinterest before you know it hours have passed and you have pinned yourself into an oblivion? I am definitely guilty of this - I honestly can't remember where I went to feed my inspirational habit before that site was created. I find myself pinning delicious food styling, flowers, gardens, fashion and interiors for more hours out of a day than I would like to admit. Today, I thought I would share with you some amazing recipes that are making my mouth water. If you would like to see what my Pinterest habit has created, you can follow me here!
I hope that everyone had a great weekend. I spent an extra day away to spend time with my family in Boston. I finally got to meet my nephew and let me tell you, he is the sweetest little man - it is times like this that I wish I lived closer to my family. I also got to spend Mother's Day with my mom which was very nice, we enjoyed a nice brunch full of pancakes and strawberry scones. We also had wonderful weather, everything in Boston is in full bloom, just like it is here in New York. I snapped these photographs at my favorite cherry blossom location in Central Park. These blooms just make me happy - I wait for their arrival every year. Is there a particular flower that you wait for all year?
Happy Friday! I have been looking forward to this day all week. We are headed up to Boston to spend Mother's Day weekend with my mom and sisters. I haven't spent a Mother's Day with my mom in far too long, and I am also excited to meet my new nephew! I recently came across this fashion spread and was immediately captivated by the ethereal light and the gorgeous flowers creating a dream-like setting. I hope that everyone has a fantastic weekend!
I think that I am having a girly moment, because all I can think about when it comes to clothes is floral prints and lace. I know that I posted about it on Monday, but every where I look, I want to buy everything that I see - bottom line, the clothes in store right now are impossibly pretty. Here are just a few of the items that are catching my eye right now. Maybe it is the warmer weather perhaps? What are you being drawn to right now?
Are you looking for the perfect brunch item to serve for your Mother's Day brunch? Well look no further than these pancakes right here - they are delightfully light and the best part is that they do not come from a yellow box. I found that they key to making a great pancake is what you do with the eggs. One of my favorite brunch spots in Brooklyn is the Buttermilk Channel - if you are ever in the area I urge you to go, their brunch menu is out of this world. I typically get an omelette but one particular day, I managed to convince my sister to let me try her pancakes and they were knee-buckling good - they were fluffy and had a hint of richness that I couldn't put my finger on - I honestly still don't know the ingredient, but it tasted like vanilla laced bourbon. These pancakes are very similar in texture since instead of adding the entire egg, you separate it and whip the egg whites into stiff peaks which is then later added into the batter. This creates for an amazingly light and fluffy pancake that would be an amazing star at your next brunch. Continue for more...
