Sam and I spent the long weekend putting up our holiday decorations. This year we decided for a subtle color palette of metallics and neutral tones with accents of vintage glass in pink and mint. For our wrapping paper I decided on these dark plaid and chevron patterns.  It has a more masculine feel buts looks really chic under the tree.  Below I’ve linked  more of my holiday decor picks.

Today I’m sharing my mom’s fool proof turkey recipe. I’ve watched her make this recipe every year for over 15 years. Roasting a giant turkey can seem intimidating but with the right recipe it’s actually easier than it seems. This is a French take on roasted turkey with Herbs de Provence, citrus, and fresh herbs providing the aromatic flavor. This was actually my very first time making this recipe without my mom. It turned out moist and full of flavor. If any of you decide to try out this recipe I’d love to hear how it goes.  Hope you enjoy your time with your family this coming week and be sure to check back for my best of Black Friday deals.

Ingredients:

1 turkey 13 to 15 pounds

2 oranges quartered

1 onion quartered

1 lemon quartered

6 sprigs Rosemary, divided

6 sprig sage, divided

6 sprigs oregano, divided

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter at room temperature, divided

2 tablespoons herbs to Provence

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper

4 cups low-sodium chicken broth

Directions:

Heat oven to 400°F. Insert the orange, onion, lemon, and two sprigs each rosemary, sage and oregano into the cavity of your turkey.  Tie the legs together with kitchen string. In small bowl combine 1 stick of butter, herbs de Provence, olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread half the mixture under the turkey skin and the remainder over the breast, thighs, and wings. Place in roasting pan and cover with foil. Roast for 20 minutes. Add 3 cups of broth and the remaining herb sprigs and orange quarters.  Roast 40 minutes. Reduce oven to 350°F, remove foil. Add 1 cup of broth and return to oven for another 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until instant-read thermometer reads 175°F.  Baste the turkey with your broth every 30 minutes or so. Remove from pan.  Let’s stand 30 minutes before carving.  Serve and enjoy.

Over the years my love of travel has grown to a point where being home for more than a few weeks seems daunting. Even if it’s just a short road trip to the desert or up North, I always feel the most inspired when I’m traveling. I love the feeling right before I go somewhere new and cherish the feeling of nostalgia when I visit a familiar place.

When Hat Attack approached me to design a hat for a mini collaboration I instantly knew that it was going to be inspired by my travels through France this summer. I chose a soft grey/ivory color palette reminiscent of the Parisian skyline and added the embroidered Au Revoir detail, which means goodbye in French. I love the way the hat turned out. It has become my favorite travel companion and the perfect fall accessory. The hat is now available at Hat Attack. Pick up yours today!

There’s nothing more chic than a beautifully designed white dress. This Tibi number is absolutely scrumptious. I love the voluminous sleeves. The open back detail adds a touch of modernity and the length is perfect for the season.  I paired the dress with silver booties and an embroidered pale pink bag for an industry dinner.
