I swear it was just last Sunday night. We were sitting on the couch, just starting Homeland (addicted, naturally), enjoying a dinner of baked potatoes with yogurt dill sauce and blasted broccoli. See! I remember it so well. It was just last night, wasn’t it? Umm no. Hello, Friday. I’m excited you’re here, but goodness, this week went by so fast flew isn’t even the right word. Don’t ask me what the right word is.

My brother and two close friends are visiting this weekend, so I’m looking forward to some much needed distraction from work and lots of time spent catching up with everyone! It’s been a busy few days so here are few things going on and what I’m loving around the web this week:

  • See that soup above? It’s a White Bean Soup with Crispy Prosciutto and Parmesan Sage Toasts I put together for the Glitter Guide. Get the recipe here– it’s so easy to make any insanely delicious!
  • Did you know we’re seeking blog contributors? I’m accepting applications until January 25th, you can get all the details on how to apply here. We’d love to have you.
  • I’ve been instragraming pics of sea salt chocolate chip cookies all week. They are so good! I tried out a new version but used mostly cake flour instead of regular all purpose. What a difference! Hoping to post the recipe, soon.
  • One of my favorite bloggers, Erin of Apartment 34, shared her amazing entertaining style on Camille Styles this week- the photos are not to miss!
  • Biggest blog crushes as of late: Leah of Freutcake (how amazing is this thyme and grapefruit cocktail??), and Christin of With a CH– get ready to die laughing. Addicted to her humor and wit.
  • One of my newest work partnerships is with M.M. LAFLEUR, an NYC based clothing company that has created a line of seven incredible dresses for the modern day working woman. Their online shop just launched at the beginning of this year, so if you’re in need of killer work wear- definitely check them out! Aaand you can see a few photos of me, here, wearing the dresses.

Have a great weekend everyone! xx

    Clara, thank you so much!! Noticed this soep in the Guide 9but did not realize it was from yourself) and made it (I was searching for recipes to use my new Braun stick blender – or the immersion blender, as it’s called in the recipe).
    Gorgeous!! It was the hit for the family get-together two days ago.

    Just returned from France a few days ago, I’m trying to catch up with things now. And after all the spectacular deliciousness of the Christmas and New Year’s season, all I need now is sour.
    If you have other favorite recipes (that use the immersion mixer to make it all fast), please share:-)

    I wish you a New year full of new ideas, new initiatives and new people to meet!
    All the best!

    Oops, I’m so sorry, I pressed the Post-button twice…and spamed your mailbox. My apologies!
    Would not be repeated.

  3. That soup looks AMAZING. I need to make that asap. Thank you SO much for the shout out! xo
