January Jones for Violet Grey

Have you seen the shots of January Jones for Violet Grey?
I think she is such a polarizing figure. Just tell us 
who your baby daddy is already!! I can't decide
where I come down on her...NOT THAT YOU ASKED. Anyway,
she's unbelievably stunning in these photos. The slicked 
back hair is punk and beautiful all at once.

Cooking with Ali Larter

I'm a little late to the party discovering Ali Larter's 
new cookbook Kitchen Revelry, but better late than never
because it is soooo good. The book consists of two 
themed recipes (complete with cocktails!) for each month 
of the year - including Guinness infused chili (game over). 
I love the saturated jewel tones in the book's opening 
editorial (above). Her Reddi Whip days are long gone.

Check out Ali's 10 hosting must-haves here and 
find some sneak peek Revelry recipes on her blog here.

ON TREND: (brace yourself)...Denim Skirts

Don't shoot the messenger. I'm just as confused as you are.
If LSD has anything to say about it (which she does), it
appears knee-length denim skirts are in for spring.
Would a tattered Abercrombie mini skirt suffice? I definitely
have a few of those tucked away waiting for their day in the sun.

Happy Sunday

It's Sunday.
Eat breakfast in bed. On today's menu:

Image via Naturally Ella

  • Filling: 1 cup diced rhubarb, 1 cup blueberries, 2 tablespoons,
  • honey, ½ teaspoon cinnamon | Crepes: ¼ cup whole wheat pastry
  • flour, ⅛ teaspoon salt, 1 egg, ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons milk, 
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted | Topping: honey, butter, greek
  • yogurt, whipping cream, ice cream

"Preheat oven to 400˚. In a bowl, toss together blueberries,
rhubarb, honey, and cinnamon. Place on parchment and roast until
soft, 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and lightly mash. Whisk
together flour, salt, eggs, milk, and melted butter until smooth.
Heat 8″ skillet and lightly grease with butter. Place a scant ¼
cup of batter in pan. Tilt the pan so that the batter covers the
entire pan and cook for about 30 seconds. Flip and cook for
another 15 seconds. Place done crepes on a piece of parchment
paper (be sure not to fully stack crepes.) To serve, smear
roasted fruit mixture in crepes and serve with favorite toppings
(these had honey and butter on top!)"

Bathroom Built-Ins

I like the idea of built-in shelves in the bathroom,
especially in the shower with a good subway tile or marble.
After all, even your Kerastase needs a place to call home.
