In the blink of an eye


Isn't it amazing how life can change in the blink of an eye? One minute you're cruising along, and the next you're thrown for a loop - reeling with new knowledge and unsure of your footing. When life hits you with unexpected events, really the only thing to do is to fall back on comfort. See those mugs up there? They are filled with the most incredible creamy chocolate-y malted goodness. Milk chocolate pots de creme from the newest book in the Baked franchise; Baked Elements. Heaven in a cup.

Interior design:

It's kind of amazing what some new shiny knobs can do for a piece of furniture. Check out Jess Lively's new take on an IKEA classic dresser.

Young House Love takes the hassle out of holiday card buying and has a giveaway for $400 to spend at Tiny Cards to purchase their gorgeous custom holiday cards as well as some custom address labels.

I'm looking forward to curling up with issue no. 9 of Anthology Magazine and a cup of tea very soon, but in the meantime, enjoy this preview.

Food:

Do you read The New Potato? A recent find for me, it's run by two sisters who are clearly passionate about discovering new culinary talent and showcasing amazing restaurants in NYC. Today's post lets you shop a stylish collection curated by Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan of Apartment Therapy. I'm drooling over those pretty little soup bowls.

Cauliflower completes me. One of my favorite recipes in the Autumn is a cauliflower cheese soup from Moosewood Kitchen. It's so satisfying. Naturally Ella has a recipe for a roasted garlic and cheddar cauliflower gratin that looks just as good.

As usual, Caitlin of Roost brings it with this insanely good looking post on pumpkin spice donuts with cinnamon butter glaze. If you haven't welcomed Autumn yet, you should do so with this recipe.

Fashion/style:

If you're as active on instagram as I am then you'll easily be able to participate in this contest being run by Anne Sage at the wonderful San Francisco-based blog, The City Sage. You could win a $250 gift card to Target and all you have to do is tag @thecitysage in your instagram posts as you walk around the streets of your town.

Do you love Erin of Apartment 34's style as much as I do? Well then you'll be excited to see that she's pairing down her wardrobe and selling off some of her excess fall clothes on Threadflip! Threadflip lets you sell your clothing straight from your closet. I'd check out her collection if I were you.


Here's Central Park from this weekend - no Autumn colors yet. See you tomorrow!
