I have a lot of blogs I love in my reader but I get extra excited when one of Joslyn's posts pops up...always the perfect combo of impeccable taste, warmth and humor...if you haven't already, head over to Simple Lovely & Raising Foodies after checking out her Everyday Obsessions below! I signed up to join her spending hiatus for the next two months but after this second recommendation for Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer I was out the door to Nordstrom's in a flash...
In My Closet:
Accessory - my Matta Dupatta Ombre scarf in fog. I wear it everywhere and get loads of compliments
Jewelry - a stack of thin gold bangles or some funky necklace.
Skin - I've just started using "The Youth as We Know it" line by Bliss and I'm really digging the way it makes my skin look/feel.
Makeup - Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in nude. It's my desert island essential. I always have a back-up tube on hand, as I have this odd irrational fear of one of my daughters squeezing the entire tube into the toilet. Wait, maybe that's not so irrational
Scent - Yuzu Rogue by 06130. I'm totally addicted to it.it's like nothing I've ever smelled. Totally unique.
Walls - I'm a sucker for thrift store art, old oil portraits of random folks + I frame loads of my girlies' art in Ribba frames and hang it everywhere
Bedding - After 10 years of all white bedding, I got the sketch duvet from Dwell Studio last year, and it makes me happy every time I walk into the room.
Flowers - I'm awfully fond of ranunculus
Favorite design source - Remodelista. several times a day. I love their aesthetic sensibility.
Cookbook – Alice Waters The Art of Simple Food. I love everything about this cookbook…the recipes aren’t overly complicated and turn out fantastic every single time. My hands down favorite is the carrot soup.
Gadget - my French press coffee maker. We usually only pull it out on the weekends. But it seriously elevates coffee.
15 min easy recipe - orecchiette with broccoli rabe and sausage.ok it might take 20 minutes, but it's still awfully darn fast.
can't live w/o ingredient - cream for my coffee...always cream
