Easy, sassy weeknight dinner.

I feel like a fabulous French woman! I can make easy, elegant meals on a Tuesday just like any Claudette or Yvette. See?

Roasted rack of lamb. Want the recipe? Lamb, salt, pepper. 500F for 10 minutes. 400F for 20. Rest 5-10. Eat. Best lamb ever!

Provencal tomatoes via Ina Garten channeling Julia.

Yum yum yum yum yum yum yum.

A treat in the mail!

Last week, I got a fabulous email alerting me that Kate Spade was having a major sale. 
And on top of the sale, was a coupon code.
and on top  of that, was that I already wanted these.
Really, really bad.

But what I didn't know, was that it would be so much fun to open a package from Kate Spade!

Welcome home, little box!
 First there was the adorable gold stripe paper and pretty purple box.

 ...and inside the little white felt pouch were my new earrings!
Sparkly and fun for the summer.

And then Kate included one last little surprise:

such a fun packaging idea!
I thought this was so much fun! 
Usually when you order something online, it comes in a plastic bag. 
 And some balled up brown paper. 
This made it seem like something really special, a little pop of luxury on a boring Wednesday. 

Thanks, Kate!
