Designer clothes at consignment prices, a cookbook that that is easy to follow and offers delicious meals, pajamas to cozy up in and more . . .


~Louise Paris

I recently discovered Louise Paris through Tresor Parisien and what a gem. An online consignment store specializing in designer clothing, shoes and accessories, Louise Paris offers chic items at a fraction of their retail price. While shipping to the US is an additional 25 Euros, it’s still quite the bargain. From a simple white cotton blazer from See by Chloe to Lanvin black sandals, enjoy perusing through their online shop. And be sure to check out their Tumblr  blog which is simple, yet full of beautiful inspiration.


~The Gramercy Tavern Cookbook

Since 1994, Gramercy Tavern has been satiating taste buds in New York City. Now chef Michael Anthony is offering recipes enjoyed in the restaurant for home cooks to make in their own kitchens. Written simply so you no longer have to travel to Manhattan to appreciate, you’ll find 125 recipes that spotlight the riches of the farmers’ market, cover to cover photographs and stories of the restaurant itself. For the chef in your family or for your own kitchen, I think you may enjoy this resource, at least I have a feeling your tastebuds will thank you.

~Foodie Top 100 Restaurants Worldwide

For travelers or foodies who are tired of looking to reviews to determine which restaurants to visit in the cities that you love, Foodie Top 100 Restaurants Worldwide is a handbook to pick up. Compiled by top food critics such as Patricia Wells, a former New York Times food critic, New York Magazine‘s Gael Greene, Los Angeles Times food critic Jonathan Gold and Japan’s first food critic, Masuhiro Yamamoto, readers will find restaurants in the USA, France, other European countries as well as Asia and Australia. Having had a chance to flip through my own copy, the organization and layout allow for easy navigation to find a restaurant in the city you are interested in and the pictures certainly tempt the tastebuds.

Drops, rain, snow, drinks, dirt and more are no match for the LifeProof cases. Available for Apple and Samsung products, perhaps you have someone on your holiday shopping list that would greatly benefit? I love the idea of having extra protection for my iPad while I’m in the kitchen. After all, there are always ingredients going where you don’t want them, and with simple access to the recipe I enjoy, I tempt fate each and every time. Now with LifeProof, I no longer have an excuse.


~Chance stripe pajamas

Julia Leach, founder of Chance clothing, has come up with another crowd pleaser with her new striped pajama tops and bottoms which are made in the USA. Based on the quality of her tops which I live in during the summer, I have my eye on a pair of blue and white stripe sleepwear to add to my night and morning attire.

~Kevia gold-plated petal earrings

Always one for changing up a capsule wardrobe with accessories, Kevia’s gold petal earrings are just the right size to add a signature to any outfit, yet making sure to allow the woman to shine. And at only $70, why not?
