Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!  Mine was quite busy but lots o’ fun.  I apartment hunted for 8 hours on Saturday and had family time on Sunday.  Weekends go by too fast!!  Here are 3 random activities that occurred:

I baked Vanilla Scones (I’ll share the recipe soon!):

I got a package from Shop Sweet Lulu with goodies for an upcoming partay:

I received presents from mumsies in the form of Anthropologie bowls (Anthro presents are the best):

And on an unrelated note, I could live in these J. Crew outfits everyday for the rest of my life:

Gift Guide: For The Foodie

Gift Guide for Foodie

Now that it’s officially December, I need to start buying gifts for my loved ones and STAT.  I’ve made the executive decision (yes, I make executive decisions for me’self) to divide it up by category as opposed to price range because a.) I majored in Journalism and English and I don’t understand numbers; b.) I have no patience to search for items >$100 (or is it <$100? – I can’t remember which way the crocodile mouth goes); and c.) I’m a bit dyslexic and afraid I’d find an item that costs $52 and place it in the “under $25” category and then WordPress would delete my blog for life.

So…onto foodie gifts.  To me, a foodie is not only someone who loves food but also celebrates everything relating to food, whether it be finding joy in an amazing cookbook or having a mild obsession with colorful teapots.  So with that in mind, I tried to pick out gifts that any foodie would be sure to eat up this holiday season.
