My latest obsession...Red Lips

Red lipstick and glosses have been around for hello, forever but, it's just something about the holidays and maybe the fact that I'm about to turn 30 EEK that gets me feeling the need to throw a pop of color to my pout!
One of my best girlfriends mom use to beg me to wear bold red lips to my high school proms because of my dark hair and features- She just knew it would look completely fierce and EVERY year I chickened out!
If she were still here with us...she would get the biggest kick out of my red lips!

How do you feel about that glamorous red pucker?!

Here is one of my attempts at red lips with my girlfriend Lauren- excuse the blurry pic..

Quote Of The Week

The future you see is the future you get.
Robert G Allen

This week I am taking a big deep breath and introducing the world to my precious baby "Delightfully Chic" I'm terrified, excited, beyond nervous, and going absolute bonkers ALL at the same time!
Success and Failure are all part of life- I believe in dreaming big and taking risks! 
So...here goes nothing!!

Don't limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.
Mary Kay Ash

For The Love Of Cooking

It's almost time to start doing some serious Thanksgiving cooking!
I refuse to handle the turkey portion!  It's just something about sticking my hands in places they certainly do not belong that I CANNOT get past! 
But, if you're looking for a delish side dish or dessert...I'm your lady!
Here are just a few recipes I plan to whip up today and tomorrow!

Carrot Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Have you ever had Starbucks mini carrot cakes?  The are ridiculously sinful!!

Cranberry and Orange Relish

I made this last year...so good...definitely going to be a repeat!

Cheese & Sausage Balls

Sausage Balls are one of my all time FAVES during the holiday season!
There is absoutley NOTHING fancy about them yet they always seem to be the hit of the party!

What are you serving up this Thanksgiving?!

My Anthropologie wishlist!!
I absolutely CANNOT wait to get out in all the madness of Black Friday!
I never go with the intent to buy that one particular item- I think that's why I enjoy it so much! 
It's the craziness of the holiday rush that totally trips my trigger!

A few other must haves from Anthro that rank high on the list!

What's on your wishlist this Black Friday?!

Shew-we!  I am exhausted!
From a dash to Charlotte to pick up the last of the DC Collection to our very first photoshoot, an attempt to be social with my girlfriends that was a complete epic fail (I lasted all of an hour before I almost fell asleep mid conversation and had to come home for an intimate date with my bed) I am now ready to crash and burn with the American Music Awards!

Here's a ti-tiny sneak peek from the photoshoot Saturday! YAY!
Make sure to subscribe to Delightfully Chic Emails for more sneak peeks!!

Happy Sunday Loves!

For The Love Of Cooking

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

Ok- Let's be honest! Do any of us ever really say..Oh My WORD...I could totally go for some Brussels Sprouts right about now?!  ...Umm I'm thinking NO!
 AND if we are being real honest I can't even remember the last time I had that funky sprout?  I'm guessing childhood and I've completely blocked the experience from my memory!

Then today I stumbled across Emma and her adorable blog Food Coma...and HELLO I'm craving Brussels Sprouts!

For all the DC email subscribers last night in your inboxes I made mention that presentation is EVERYTHING...Here's another perfect example...

Check the complete recipe here and get your sprout on!
Yea- I totally just said "get your sprout on"

A great company with an incredible mission working with the ladies of Uganda!

I remember hearing a brief mention of 31 Bits a few months back but, it wasn't until today that fellow blogger Angela Charles of Habit Forming Success and I sat down and really looked at the background of the company...AMAZING!
Read more of the story here and here!

And for now feast your eyes on the unique and exquisite pieces of jewelry handcrafted by the women of Uganda!

Did you catch E! News last night??
My fave gal Giuliana Rancic had on her very own 31 Bits necklace!


In the words of Giuliana
"Who knew recycled paper could be so stylish?"
