Happy weekend!

Wow, it's the last weekend in November of the year, can you believe it? I'm looking forward to catching some summer rays this weekend + catching up on a few unread books I've been meaning to read including Joy Cho's Blog Inc; plus I need to start on my Christmas shopping - have you started yours yet?

Here are few of my favourites from this week...

+ This Fig & Ricotta Crostini recipe looks divine.

+ If you're like me and into all things monochrome right now you need to see this incredibly stylish home.

+ Serena (whose blog Pretty Fluffy turned 2 this week!) shared these spot on 10 tips for blogging.

+  Manolo Blahnik was announced as the recipient of the Outstanding Achievement award at this Years' British Fashion Awards (being held on Tuesday).

+ Erin Gates has launched a new {and fabulous} collection with Jill Rosenwald. I am seriously crushing over that black + white lamp.


And given this weekend is one of the biggest sales events of the year, here are a few Black Friday + Cyber Monday deals too good not to share...

+ Lemon + Lavender is offering a 10% discount on her gorgeous range of stationery and cards with code SENDLOVE (23th-25th Nov)
