Everyone knows I love suede. It's almost on that same level of my obsession with the color white. I always try to incorporate suede in every season. So when this soft suede trench from Shein was available, "had to have it!" What's one of your favorite textures?

Favorite foundations and tinted moisturizers. I usually mix them together to get a light consistency. 

The Leanne Marshall Fall/Winter 2017/18 collection makes you want to just be in a dramatic dress going to work, grocery store or to the gym. They are gorgeous. As you all know I love neutral tones. The relax tones gives me life and soul. The collection reminds me of a modern day Marie Antoinette. That perfect France glow of all the color and laces were beautiful. Leanne Marshall has done it again and I can't wait to see the next collection.

We like hosting parties at our house. I love cooking for a lot of people and it’s always nice to have friends over. In almost all the parties we’ve hosted, our friend Brooke and her husband Jon are always present. Also Brooke is a great cook! This means we always have amazing food. She made some baby back ribs for our super bowl party and it was epic! She sent me over the recipe from Epicurious and I wanted to share it with you. Who doesn’t like baby back ribs right? But I don’t like those super sweet sauces that everyone just puts on the ribs right after they grill them. So the sauce from this recipe was perfect.

5 tablespoons honey
¼ cup bourbon
1 ½ tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 table spoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon plum sauce
1 ½ teaspoons mild-flavored (light) molasses
1 ½ teaspoon soy sauce
1 ½ Worcestershire sauce
¾ teaspoon hot chili paste
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
2 ½ lbs. racks baby back ribs
1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice

Make sure to try out this recipe for your next gathering!

The grays in my closet is increasing its numbers. I really don't mind it. It is one of my favorite neutrals. I will definitely take anything that's grey if anyone offered me any. This week has been hectic and I can't wait for it to be over.
