As you may have seen on instagram recently, my husband Rich and I were lucky enough to be awarded Fashion Group International's Business Innovation award for our company, Trove. If you haven't downloaded Trove yet, click here. Lots more exciting news (plus an android version) coming very soon, so stay tuned!
We recently had friends over for dinner and since I didn't have a lot of lead-time, I made this stupidly-simple chicken recipe (aptly named "World's Best Chicken") with this super easy brussels sprouts and butternut squash combo on the side. Both were huge hits and went immediately into my "favorite recipes ever" folder. Highly recommend.
As mentioned, I'll be doing loads of skincare posts in the near future breaking down every process and product that you need to know about. (Sidenote: I've been doing so much intense research on skincare over the past couple months, my mom said it looked like I was studying for finals over Christmas. She wasn't too far off.) I will be doing a huge, comprehensive post on this product in the coming weeks, but thought I'd share a little sneak peek of the number one, hands-down, most mind-blowingly game-changing product I've ever tried: Biologique Recherche P50. I've heard about it for years from my friend Helena's blog and skincare guru Caroline Hirons, but only recently did my research and finally ordered a bottle from Rescue Spa. More details on this product coming soon, but I'm telling you, there is not enough hype in the world to do it justice.
As many of you know, Rich and I go to Broadway shows every chance we get and just bought tickets to see The Band's Visit next month. The cast is amazing (including the super talented Tony Shalhoub, Katrina Lenk and John Cariani) and reviews thus far have been stellar. Let me know if any of you have seen it already!
If you're looking for an amazing new scent and/or a gorgeous gift, check out Jo Malone's Basil & Neroli candle. It's long been one of their most popular scents, and I've been burning it day and night at home. I even ordered a second one to have at the office because I'm so hooked! They're available at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, and Neiman Marcus but I've also become completely obsessed with reading the story behind each scent on Jo Malone's website. So cool.
A follower recently asked me if I registered for wedding china when Rich and I got married and if so, what pattern I chose. The answer is yes! Fun fact, I'm OBSESSED with china—have been since I was a little girl. There are many patterns I love (I have many Royal Copenhagen pieces—both the Blue Fluted Plain and the Blue Fluted Mega), but my actual wedding china was a mix of Anna Weatherley pieces as follows:
CHARGERS: Simply Anna Polka
DINNER PLATES: Simply Anna
SALAD PLATES: Old Master Tulips (there are 12 unique tulip designs)
BREAD PLATES: Simply Anna Polka
TEA CUPS: Simply Anna
SAUCERS: Simply Anna Polka
