The L Word

I’ve always been a sucker for anything leopard and with the current influx of animal print accessories, I’ve been in heaven.  I fell hard for these Kenneth Cole sneaks, especially for city life.  I can’t wait to pair them with some distressed cutoffs in the Spring (please hurry back warmth), but for now, leather leggings are my go to partner in crime for my favorite print.

Berry

Christmas Eve was fantastic!  It was a constant flurry of friends, family and food, which is always wonderful.  This year, I was inspired by one of my favorite dishes….cranberry apple crumble.  While this dish sounds basic, and an obvious holiday treat, it is beyond amazing, in color and taste.  Plump cranberry jewels nestled in a sweet mixture of spices and apples, topped with caramelized cinnamon oats. Amazing!

After having way to many servings, I decided to indulge my cranberry obsession elsewhere.  My Winter color love this year has been cranberry or anything in the cranberry family.  I love the warmth it brings and the thoughts of spiced cider and the infamous crumble it conjures up.  It definitely put some warmth in the chilly air today!
