Friday Favorites

First Friday Favorites of 2013! 

I received this as a Christmas gift and my girl, Ina, has outdone herself once again.  M was flipping through it and basically dog-eared every page for me to make. Once I have completed my Christmas detox, it's game on.  Do you have this cookbook?  If so, what's your fave recipe in it?

I discovered this back in December when I decided in very non-me fashion to do a bold lip for a Christmas wedding we attended.  The saleslady told me that this {Chanel Rouge Allure in Passion} is Chanel's signature red. Sold.  I wore it for New Year's Eve as well and just love it!

Erm, ignoring the subject of Christmas detox, can we talk about these brown butter vanilla bean Rice Krispie treats? I want to eat the entire platter of these.  Aaaaah they just sound so perfect!!

One of my goals for 2013 is getting our house to look like two real, live adults live there.  I love this IKEA hack to make the the Billy bookshelves look like built-ins. I've already bought the burlap for the backing. I just need to find a time to head to IKEA and stockpile on bookshelves.  Now if only I can find someone to style them for me...

And last but not least...
Downton Abbey on Sunday, y'all!!!!!!!!!!!  So. Friggin'. Pumped.

Ina's "Easy Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheeses Croutons" sounds so yummy! I also just love how she puts menus together from all of her cookbooks!!!

I'm soo excited for Downton Abbey!!! I have Foolproof and have made the slow-roasted beef tenderloin and the penne with vodka sauce and both were incredibly delicious and easy! She's the best!

I love the look of that shelf so much! Also, I want that cookbook.

I have not yet watched Downton Abbey, BUT I received season one on dvd for Christmas! So excited to finally be in the loop!

Those Rice Krispy Treats look delicious! I think I'm the only person in the world who hasn't watched Downtown Abbey!

Hi Sarah,
I was nodding my head in agreement with Ina, Chanel (I wear the color Emotive) and Downton Abbey....when I noticed that I had missed your previous post.

I'm so sorry that 2012 was such a trying year for you and M. You had a lot of adjustments, even 1 of which could stress anyone. I think it's great you're heading into 2013 with a positive focus and that you know what you need to be more fulfilled.

Sending you a big hug! Things will get better!
xoxo Elizabeth

I have a Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in "Lover". I can't tell you how happy it makes me to see that pretty black and gold case in my purse. It's the little things!

I'm also completely paranoid about not messing up the CHANEL engraving in the lipstick. Tell me I'm not alone!
