Oh man. As you know, I LOVE a good deal and this is a total steal. I love towels. The softer, fluffier and more plush, the better. This beautiful MicroCotton, super soft, 6 piece towel set is on mega sale at Eziba today! You get 2 bath towels, 2 hand towels and 2 wash cloths. Originally this luxurious set was $156.87, but today on Eziba they are only $34.99 for all 6 pieces! I personally think you can never have enough fluffy white towels, but if you are craving color they also come in ivory, dove gray, indigo, blush pink and other colors.

Perhaps I’m a little crazy but I’m loving these handmade pencils from missIsa in Australia. They remind me of something you would see on those perfectly coordinated desks in Real Simple Magazine or on Martha Stewart’s beautifully organized desk. I love everything chalkboard-black right now, so these are my favorites. However, I also love these floral pencils for autumn.
Any of these would be a cute addition to a little gift. Maybe paired with a beautiful journal or sketchbook or some staionary or recipe cards.
When I was in high school or college I never would have predicted I would be working from home. I thought I would be out and about and Jared would be the one working from home and getting dinner going, throwing a load of laundry in, etc. Now that I’m home however, I love it. I love having the freedom to try a new recipe while I wait for replies or vacuum a room between creating new pieces and posting. As a newlywed and fresh college grad (one year out) I am learning how to do all these silly domestic things I never imagined I would do. I’m no domestic goddess. I’m not always successful. But I know some of you are in the same boat and if I can share my success (or sometimes failure) I will.
A week or so ago I had the biggest craving for chicken salad with grapes and toasted almonds. The recipe called for poached chicken. To be honest I really didn’t know what poaching involved. I knew it kept the chicken moist and had something to do with cooking it in liquid. So I called the most domestic person I know, my Grandma, who has been a homemaker for over 50 years.
Here is what I did…
It seemed to work. The makeshift broth smelled really good and the chicken had a nice light flavor of herbs. It wasn’t too strong and was perfect once mixed into the chicken salad. The chicken was nice a moist to Jared and me, but we’re not terribly picky. I count this as a success in my book. But if any of you have tips or tricks, please feel free to share!
