I while back I posted about Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream and their delicious looking treats. Jeni’s just won a James Beard award which only makes me want to get my hands on some ice cream even more than I did before. Since I won’t be in Ohio anytime in the foreseeable future I’ll have to settle for the book Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream at Home with gorgeuos images shot by Stacey Newgent.
I’m always at a loss when it comes to giving a great hostess gift. Sometimes flowers are the easiest bet when thinking fast, but taking some time to put some though into what your bringing is so nice and always appreciated. Leave it to Martha to come up with a list of 35 amazing hostess gifts that are sure to inspire. While some are creative and easy like a bottle of rose and a vintage corkscrew, others take some thought and time but you’ll be sure to impress at your next dinner party.

I love to cook and spend a great amount of time in my kitchen, so when I was introduced to Sous Style via Erin over at Elements of Style (total blog crush) I was thrilled. Started by Pippa Lord Photo Director at Elle, Sous Style is not only full of tips and tricks, great gadgets and helpful advise but it also gives readers a peak into the kitchen to see what others are cooking up. Almost like The Coveteur, but for kitchens this site is filled with beautiful photography and endless info, see for yourself here.
I’m smitten with Mignon Kitchen, an adorable online shop that curates items for prepping, baking, serving and even packaging. Mignon has a great combination of everyday baking tools as well as some unique ingredients and edibles treats, but it is the beautiful styling and photographs that makes me want to place an order and fill my pantry.
Spoon Fork Bacon, a beautiful blog with stunning images and mouth watering recipes. I want to cook, bake, eat and drink everything on this blog, mmmmm.
Chalk, once reserved solely for kids and teachers is a great medium to incorporate into an event or your home. Chalkboard paint can be used to create everything from chalkboard walls to picture frames and really adds an element of playfulness to any space.
