We spent the first part of Thanksgiving in Maryland and watched the Thanksgiving Fox Hunt commence.
My mom did her usual spread of Deviled Eggs with Caviar and Ham Biscuits.
JCW & EAS
There were lots of furry friends enjoying the holiday.
We ended the morning with oysters and many of them contained little mini crabs. Apparently they taste like sweet corn or at least that's what JCW told me in hopes that I would try one. Have you ever found oyster crabs?
The vibrant red would be great for holiday parties or paired with a red lip.
All of the Uber Clutches come with an extra gold tassel and can be personalized with your initials in gold. These would make such wonderful holiday gifts and even better holidays gifts if they were filled with Hermes bangles.
The code DREAMS will give you 25% off your order which in good through Friday, December 7th.
Is it just me or do you also feel like Black Friday has already begun? My inbox is already flooded with deals and here are a few things I have been eyeing. Let's start with these Tartan Pants from J.Crew. They are offering 25% off everything with the code COLOR25.
I am all about plaid and have also been loving these Janey Flats in addition to some pretty fabulous cashmere from their last roll out.
I have this Sequin Tee from last year and it's one of the only sparkly items that I own. They are currently at the J.Crew Factory which is offering 40% off site wide with an additional 15% and free shipping on orders over $100 with the code GIVEANDGET.
The best part (besides cooking & eating) of Thanksgiving is creating your tablescape. I've had pretty much every item from Vagabond House's Antler Rustic collection on my lust list for quite sometime. The Morning Hunt collection is also a favorite.
I posted about McLaughlin Glazeware back in September and they have generously offered to giveaway one of their Charleston Monogram Trays. The winner will get to have the tray personalized with their initials and colors. They have also offered you all a special discount on the tray if you just can't wait to see who wins.
I bought a pint of Shore Boy's Cream of Crab Soup from a local grocery store (Eddies) but you can also order it online. It comes straight from the Eastern Shore...don't worry there is no skimping on the crab meat.
I can't even tell you have many Target runs I have made after moving but I can definitely say my best purchase was Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
and yes they are magic.
One of Lawyers Liz's signature tailgating cocktails is the Bourbon Bourbon Slushie. They look best served in a clear glass like a
Govino which are my absolute favorite glasses for tailgating.
-1 (64 oz) container pineapple juice
-1 (12 oz) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
-1 (12 oz) can frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
-1 1/2 cups bourbon (LL uses 2 cups of Makers Mark)
-Maraschino cherry juice
-Garnish: Maraschino cherries
1. Stir together first 4 ingredients and 1 cup water. Divide mixture
into 2 (1 gal) zip-top plastic freezer bags; seal and freeze 8 hours.
2. Remove from freezer, and let stand 1 hour or until softened and
beginning to melt. Using hands, squeeze bags until mixture is slushy.
Spoon 2 cups mixture into each serving glass. Top each with 2 tsp
cherry juice (do not stir). Serve immediately. Garnish, if desired.
When serving, don't stir. The cherry juice will drip down to the bottom of the glass, producing colorful layers.
This video "Through glass" captures footage from the Diane von Furstenberg's Spring 2013 New York Fashion week show. In the film you get to experience the creative process/show through the eyes of Diane von Furstenberg, models, makeup artists, and designers. The entire video was filmed using Google's Glass. Glass is Google's latest technology which enables you to capture moments from a totally unique individual perspective. I am completely fascinated with the idea of augmented reality eyeglasses and at the same time somewhat terrified. I would LOVE to get my hands on a pair but my only request is that they make some with a tortoise frame. Would you wear Google Glass?
The DVF iconic wrap dress will always be in fashion...
I simply adore the American flag and I am constantly inspired by my surroundings. I love wearing anything with ruffles. I have a special place in my heart for animals and the water. I cherish photography and sculpture. I believe in fate. Summer is my favorite time of year. I like smelling cinnamon buns. I can’t live without back-rubs, online shopping, heating blankets, pink nail polish, plaid and hydrangeas. I get excited before a storm. There should be more random acts of kindness. I love antiques and decorating. I mostly wear flats. Anything seersucker is adorable. I will never get sick of eating tomato mozzarella. The best thing about the beach is outdoor showers and eating candy. All pools should be heated. -EAS
