Sunday Stories

A few things that caught my eye this week - starting with the beautiful dresses on the Golden Globes red carpet last Sunday.  Natalie Portman (far left) still seemed to be in "Jackie" character with that gorgeous yellow dress.  This - and E! host Giuliana Rancic's dress (love the colors and textures!) - were two of my faves.  These styles would not work on me, but on them?  Perfection.

Speaking of fashion - lots of interest in who/what Ivanka is wearing.

Can't stop looking at apartment tours - like this "Barbie dream home" in Brooklyn and this London flat - on Apartment Therapy.

Is there any better aroma from the kitchen on a cold winter day than beef stew simmering in the slow cooker?  I'm definitely trying this supposedly tastier and less messy way of browning the meat next time I make it.

Not being a mother, I don't have to deal with the societal pressure described in this article, but I have no doubt many of you face it.  Feel free to chime in with your thoughts and experience with this one.

Have a lovely week!
