Link Love!

Custom Prada Shoes

Usually I do a link love post on Thursdays but I came across so many awesome things today that I had to expedite it.  

Above:  Guess what ladies?  Now you can design your own custom Prada heels!  The only thing missing is the ability to include a monogram.  

More links I am loving this week are:

–  There is new installment of Jimmy Kimmel’s wildly funny “Mean Tweets” series!  It is the second NBA edition and it features my personal favorite, Dikembe Mutombo.

–  The Pioneer Woman does it again.  I am TOTALLY making these Blackberry Cheesecake Squares in the near future!  Mmmmm!

–  Pretty soon you will be able to text your friend a smell.  Not sure how I feel about this…could be gross.

A Little Glitter – Link Love

A Little Glitter's Link Love

Here are some things I have been loving from around the web:

Pioneer Woman Wontons1.  Those delicious pieces of fried goodness are cream cheese wontons made by the Pioneer Woman (who I have a total food-girl crush on).  I am not the biggest cream cheese fan but I can think of 21634354354 things off the top of my head that would make for a delicious filling – such as banana and nutella, beef and cheese (like a philly cheesesteak), shrimp, chicken and salsa, oh the list goes on and on.  I am definitely going to have to get to work on some wontons soon.  Mmmmmmm!

Garlic Beauty Tip Pimple2.  A Cup of Jo has an article about how garlic can cure pimples.  I am just going to say this now:  if this is true than I want the thousands of dollars that I wasted on creams/lotions/serums/vitamins/doctors from my teen years back.  I am totally going to try it the next time I have a breakout.  Could it be possible that the solution to a problem that plagues so many is that easily solvable?  I will let you know how it works out for me.

Buttered popcorn cupcakes

3.  A Beautiful Mess just posted the most totes adorbs cupcakes for your Oscar parties! BUTTERED POPCORN CUPCAKES YOU GUYS!  These are awesome!  I am not having an Oscar Party (unless you count me eating Cadbury Eggs and judging the red carpet dresses as a party) but I think these would translate to other themes and occasions so well.  I can picture making them for a movie night or a sleepover party.  

4.  Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues comes out this weekend and I cant even DEAL with how funny the trailers are!  I am definitely going to see it with the hubby this weekend. 

Thrifty Decor Chic wall stencil

5.  Thrifty Decor Chic did a great job stenciling her basement wall!  I am dying to re-do my powder room and I want to either stencil the ceiling or do a subtle stencil job on one wall.  I was thinking of doing a matte charcoal grey wall and stenciling a pattern in the same shade but glossy to give it a little kick.  I’m not entirely sure yet what I am going to do in there but I find the above picture so inspirational.  

Last minute gift guide for the gals…

Christmas Gifts


Every year (except this one) I start my Christmas shopping in August. I try my best to be prepared. This year I totally fell off and in the upcoming week I have some shopping to do but I do have ideas as to what I plan to buy and I thought I should make some suggestions for you as well. Here are some items that I own or that I would love to own:

1. Sorel “Joan of Arc” Boot. These are not the most glamorous boots but let’s face it – it’s cold out and I’m sick of Uggs. I think these would actually look pretty cute with some jeans.

2. The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier. Ree Drummond is amazing and her recipes are so easy to follow and delicious. I am going to post my own modification to one of her receipes later in the week that is a staple at Bannon Castle.

3. Tocca Florence Candle. This is my favorite candle of all time. The packaging is gorgeous and the scent is sublime. This makes a great hostess gift.

4. Ellen Tracy Coat. I personally own this coat. I searched for years for a dress coat like this and finally discovered it in September. I know it is a bit pricey but it’s worth it. People stop me in the street to compliment me on it constantly. Definite show stopper. I want to buy three more and lay them up in case anything every happens to the one I own.

5. ShopNestled Turquois Bib Statement Necklace. I love this necklace. It is from a small business on Etsy and the seller is amazing. The jewelry is very high quality. It’s not for everyone though. Some people will prefer the daintier and more personal custom necklaces from the Name Necklace Official website.

6. J.Crew Glitter Minaudière. Perfect for a glam girlfriend or all those New Year’s parties!

7. Crate and Barrell Oslo Candleholders. These are stunning in person and so heavy and well made.

8. Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. The latest installment in Urban Decay’s popular line of eye shadow compacts. This would be a wonderful gift for a sister, friend or me.
