Fashion Find

My sister Robin loved this look from 
the current J. Crew catalog...

This blazer is $118 at J. Crew.
She wanted to try and replicate it
for cheaper, so I told her I'd be
on the lookout for similar pieces.
I found a blazer on Forever21 that 
looked just like it.

This blazer comes in Navy or Black 
and retails for $22.80. 
Now I just have to find the shoes
and blouse....

Dining Areas

It could be formal, or it could be casual, 
either way a dining room is a perfect
place to entertain or sit down for a family meal.
These areas range from elegant and sophisticated
to comfortable and laid back.

Boardwalk Empire

Empire Boardwalk is a great show on
HBO with beautiful scenery and clothing 
from the 1920's. Vanity Fair did a lovely
photo shoot with the women from the show.

Happy Birthday... to me!

I recently made this Cocoa Layer Cake
from Epicurious, and it was delicious!
My family and I have been searching for a
good chocolate cake recipe and this one is moist 
and decadent. 

You can find the recipe here: Cocoa Layer Cake
