Fabulous Finds Friday - 5th Edition

November 26, 2010

Happy Black Friday everyone! Did you sleep in a little later than usual today or were you up early heading out to shop with the masses?

If you slept in and are planning on shopping for gifts on Cyber Monday, maybe the following fabulous finds will help get you started!

Let's kick this fifth edition off with these Spilt Milk Bowls from MOMA:

I love these bowls and have wanted a set since I first saw them! They're made of flexible white silicone and are microwave and dishwasher safe and if you're a member of MOMA, you can get each bowl for $12.60, otherwise they're $14 each. They'd make a great gift for a college student or a new homeowner!

Happy Thanksgiving!

"May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump, may your potatoes n’ gravy, have nary a lump, may your yams be delicious, may your pies be the prize and may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs!"

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Have a safe and happy holiday :)

I'm in love with everything (Sub)Urban Home has to offer! It's too bad I live 8 hours away from L.A. because I could spend all day wandering around their showroom!

I love that studded chair and the silver tree stump side table

C'mon, how can you not smile when looking at that?! The cheese slicer is stainless steel and comes with a generously sized 5" x 9" beech wood cheeseboard that's disguised as a giant mousetrap. At just $19.95, it'd make a great gift for a host or hostess!

Living Room Redo

November 18, 2010

A few months ago, I was inspired by this photo from Tristan Auer's portfolio:

I saved it in my inspiration folder and kept going back to it every time I was trying to figure out what to do with the empty space above our fireplace so over the weekend, my boyfriend and I put our thinking caps on and made this happen:


Pumpkin Desserts

November 17, 2010

With Thanksgiving just a week away, I've been tasked with making dessert for everyone! I can't wait to make them either because, I don't know about you but dessert happens to be my favorite meal!

This year I'd like to make a couple of different mini desserts instead of one big dessert that might not appeal to everyone's taste buds. I bought some pumpkin pie filling on sale so I'm starting with ideas for a pumpkin based desserts first since A) I already have the ingredients and B) I'm a huge fan of pumpkin pie!

Thanks to Martha Stewart, I've stumbled upon some other ideas for pumpkin desserts. Some of my favorites include:

Not only is this 100% handwoven organic cotton blanket a steal at $39.95 (from $59.95), but it's a cheerful shade of yellow that would look great draped over the back of a chair or spread out at the end of a bed!

Giada De Laurentiis Pots and Pans

Just when I thought I couldn't love my boyfriend anymore, yesterday he surprised me with the Giada De Laurentiis™ 10-pc. Professional Series Tri-Ply Clad Cookware Set from Target! Why? Because I support his decisions and believe in him when he doesn't :) He kills me with his awesomeness <3

Anyways, I can't even tell you how excited I am about this gift because I've wanted this set since it was released last year but I never bought it because the pots and pans I had were just fine but now, with this set, I get to move up to the Major Leagues of cooking and I couldn't be more thrilled :)

Jonathan Adler's Happy Chic Books

November 8, 2010

For those of you who haven't already heard, Jonathan Adler's new Happy Chic books are now available and for a limited time, you can order signed copies as holiday gifts!


In his first book, Happy Chic accessorizing, Jonathan "divulges his tips for artful arranging everywhere from bed to bookshelf, dining table to dresser."

I'm really looking forward to reading how he creates vignettes that look so effortless because that's definitely an area I struggle in!


In his second book, Happy Chic Colors, Jonathan "shares his thoughts on color, revealing his go-to paint chips, favorite fabrics and personal color muses."

The image on the cover of this book has me sold so I can't wait to see how it relates to the contents of the book itself!

I've already added Jonathan's new books to my holiday wish list, have you?
