Blogger's Favorites -- Cannelle et Vanille (and an update)

We are home from the hospital (they don't keep you very long these days...), and I'm happy to report that things went really well. We're now officially in recovery mode (I've outfitted him with a little bell...he's totally loving this, besides the excruciating pain of course.) Thank you for all your well wishes, comments, e-mails... I am utterly, completely, totally touched. Thank you.

I also had to pop in to post this week's blogger's favorite, as it is really lovely. But that's really no surprise as its owner, Aran is the incredible talent behind the ├╝ber gorgeous food blog cannelle et vanille. A pastry chef, the recipes and the photos (my goodness the incredible photos) on her blog are seriously swoon worthy. .

Herewith Aran's favorites. Have a splendid weekend.
  1. Goji berries -- My snack weakness. I cannot stop myself.
  2. Aduriz Clorofila -- Beautiful recipes and personal stories in this recipe/reference book on flowers and herbs. The cookbook that I would have loved to had written.
  3. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge -- I cannot leave my house without this lip cream. I own about every single color out there.
  4. Eugenia Kim Fedoras -- So cool.
  5. Revol Bakeware -- The most beautiful and functional mini baking dishes.
  6. Sigma Macro Lens -- Makes my pastries come to life.
  7. Hydrangeas -- They make me so happy.
  8. Old Wellies -- My dad’s old wellies by the front door.
  9. Moop Market Bag -- Fits everything I need and most importantly, what my 2 year old needs.

Love the lip cream. And if you haven't tried the creamy concealer ... get thee to the makeup counter. Bobbie Brown's creamy concealer and Laura Mercier's Tinted moisturizer = heaven.

have a great weekend!

Love these lists - they're so beautiful and inspirational and often not about the "things" at all.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.
