Blouses are the new shirt for spring, and they’ve been popping up everywhere. Cupcakes and Cashmere recently did a post on blouses with tie necks that has some pretty cute options. That being said, these shirts can be a little difficult to style, particularly if you don’t want to look too prim. If you’re wondering… Continue reading Fashion Friday: Blouses
As some of you know, I’m a part of a Supper Club. Our small group meets monthly with each person taking a turn as the host. In our club, each person can decide whether they’d like to cook, choose a restaurant or host a potluck meal. Most of the time, our ladies cook dinner.

We’ve been eating a lot of these lately at our house, and they’re the perfect balance of comfort (burger) and health (turkey). They also… Continue reading Turkey Burgers
