I am obsessed with the colors of this blouse.   And JCrew is having an extra 25% off right now, like I need a reason to shop there.  If I don’t buy this before it is definitely going on my Christmas Wish List.

{Ina Garden FoolProof and Smitten Kitchen Cookbooks}

Two of the best new cookbooks just arrived at my house last week and I am obsessed with both of them.  I have devoured them front to back ear marking all the recipes I cant wait to try.  I highly recommend both!

{Serena and Lily Nova Napkins}

I first spied these napkins in my most recent issue of House Beautiful and could not stop thinking about them.  I love the geometric patterns and bright blue colors.  When entertaining I always like to mix and match napkins, makes it more fun.   I can’t decide if I love the cocktail napkins or regular napkins more.  These would make a great hostess gift:)

{Madewell Silk Dress}

I love love love this dress.  The colors are just gorgeous. 

{Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey}

Let me start by saying I am so not a whiskey drinker.  I prefer clear liquor, but this stuff is so tasty.   Matt and I had a little taste of it last weekend and I forgot how darn good it was. The perfect cold weather sipping liquor.

{Hedgehog Measuring Cups}

How adorable are these Hedgehog measuring cups?  I want them for my kitchen.  They would be the cutest Holiday gift too!

  25. Hehehe…seriously hedgehogs are just about the most adorable animals on the planet, so *clearly* these catch my fancy (c: And J crew has been taunting me all week with their 25% off emails! DANG THEM and their fabulous clothes/shoes/accessories!!!

  26. Thank you for the cookbook suggestions – I was trying to make a Christmas wish list for my hubby and these will be at the top for sure!

    Fireball is amazing! The first time I had it I was transported back to elementary school, it tastes so much like fireballs candy. It was so smooth it worried me a little bit. Our friends own a bar and the bartender was more than happy to keep giving me free samples. It's delicious for sure.
