Good morning! Happy Friday! How was your week? Mine has been fabulous, my mother and I have been Christmas shopping, baking, watching holiday movies, working out and eating a lot of our favorite things. Today my mom is making me some pillows and Christmas stockings. I will be sitting by her side supplying moral support, coffee and sustenance.
Can you believe that six days from now it’s Thanksgiving? I can’t but I am so excited to see my family and to cook our family favorites.

Are you ready for the “big day”? If not I have a few ideas to help you prepare for your guests, although I am sure that you do not need any. I will be starting the day with this easy and delicious looking Cranberry Chutney and Brie Crostini from What Should I Make for… I think this chutney would also be fabulous on Thanksgiving leftovers as well.

|New York Street Style|
Coloring books for adults have been the rage for the last few years. New York Street Style by Zoe de las Cases is the perfect one for all of the fashionistas in your life. The book is beautifully illustrated with sketches by Zoe of the outfits, hairstyles and accessories and sites of New York. I think this would make a wonderful Christmas gift.
Speaking of Christmas, if you are looking to add a little color to your holiday look check out these fabulous lipsticks and nail colors that I recently discovered. I do not typically wear dramatic colors like these but I have recently ordered this polish to wear to a party that I am attending. I love this lipstick but I haven’t made up my mind just yet,
What about you? Are you a fan of a bit of color at the holidays? Do you have a favorite polish or lip color that you wear?
I hope that you have a fabulous weekend. As always, please safe your recipes, books and finds with us!
