The Chic Assignment Check-in: October, 2020

2:41 PM 0 Comments

Welcome to The Chic Assignment Check-in. I am excited to dive into each assignment with you in more detail. Let's begin. 


 Chic Assignment no. 1 The Phantom of the Opera I hope you enjoyed listening to The Phantom of the Opera this month. I have provided a 1988 Tony Award performance from the great Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman that is so riveting and nostalgic. I know during this pandemic shut-down I have missed going to the theatre and I look forward to returning one day. 

During the check-in we are learning about Andrew Lloyd Webber and the history of The Phantom of the Opera. I hope you enjoy learning the brief history of this celebrated musical. 



Chic Assignment no. 2 Enjoy the art of Gustave Caillebotte
We are studying French artist, Gustave Caillebotte this month. You can see his most famous paintings for free online. In the check-in, we learn more about his interesting, yet very short life. 

The Floor Scrapers, 1875

In today's video I remark about the rejection of one of his most famous works, The Floor Scrapers, from the judges of the Salon of 1875. They deemed the painting to be vulgar because it depicted "common laborers". This strikes me as interesting because in the world of art there is nothing new under the sun. Artists of the past and artists of today (no matter what form your art takes) are judged by the "powers that be" on whether their art is acceptable. I've had this experience as a writer... it just goes to show that the big corporations don't always know what they are talking about. They deemed Caillebotte's, The Floor Scrapers, as vulgar, assuming that the public would not want to see laborers in action, but they were wrong. Just more motivation for artists to continue to create their work, despite the ignorant rejection of the establishment. 

Check out the following two books for more on Gustave Caillebotte: 


  

You can buy canvas reproductions of Gustave Caillebotte's paintings at Great Big Canvas

The Luncheon, 1876

Rue De Paris, Temps De Pluie, 1877

I would love to know... what is your favorite Caillebotte painting?

Chic Assignment no. 3 We have been focusing on presentable undergarments and sleepwear this month. I explored these subjects extensively in separate videos this month. You can watch the undergarment guide here, and the sleepwear guide here. 


Chic Assignment no. 4 Enjoy cooking a new seasonal dish. 
For the final chic assignment we are enjoying seasonal cooking. I hope that my What's for Dinner? videos have been a motivating tool for you to meal plan and incorporate seasonal recipes into your cooking routine. I have another one coming out soon for more inspiration.

The Case for Presentable Sleepwear + The Season's Best Styles | Chic Pajamas for Women + Budget Dupes

9:00 AM 5 Comments

Welcome back to The Daily Connoisseur. In our last post, we discussed why it's important to wear presentable undergarments. Today we are discussing sleepwear. Presentable sleepwear is a passion of mine. I love pretty pajamas! If you strive to look presentable in public everyday, you should also strive to look presentable at home... even if you live alone and no one sees you.



Today, I'm sharing my seasonal sleepwear guide with you and have pulled the season's latest styles from my favorite companies. All of the sleepwear I am showcasing is high-quality, high-end sleepwear, mainly from tried and tested brands that I am familiar with and have had excellent experiences with. 

Budget Sleepwear

If you are on a budget, however, and these do not fit in your price range, I did a lot of research and found nearly identical budget dupes. You can find all of those in the budget sleepwear section of my Amazon store

How to invest in sleepwear

How do you start to collect and invest in high-end sleepwear and still stay on budget? Because high-quality sleepwear can last for years, just start your collection by purchasing one a year. I generally allot for an update once a year and have done so for years. If you take care of your sleepwear by washing and storing it correctly, your sleepwear will last a long time. There will come a time, however, when you will need to throw your sleepwear away (or donate it if it is in usable condition). Make sure you read those cues and act accordingly. Don't hold onto sleepwear past its prime.  

The latest styles... which is your favorite? 

Let's take a look at some of the brands featured in today's video. Perhaps they can give you inspiration for the type of sleepwear you'd like to wear on a nightly basis. You can find my slipper recommendations in my Amazon store as well. 

The Lilysilk chic pajama set is their most popular, bestselling sleepwear item. Made of  100% 22 Momme Mulberry Silk, with contrast piping and mother-of-pearl buttons, this pajama set is luxurious and would make an excellent gift. Daily12 for 12% off

Lusome Lucienne Nightdress in Noir  LUSOME20 for 20% off The Lusome line is made from Xirotex, which is proven to eliminate night sweats and has an advanced moisture management technology. This is my favorite type of sleepwear. I love comfortable sleep shirts and nightgowns. I adore this one in particular. 


Lusome Luxe line with Xirotex  LUSOME20 - 20% off The Donna pajama runs big. Normally Medium pajamas fit well on me but this one is much larger. I would order true-to-size with this one. This is also made of Xirotex and prevents night sweats. A wonderful pajama set. 


Cami NYC is a luxury clothing line that is known for their beautiful lacy camisoles. They also have a capsule collection of silk sleepwear. This is sleepwear is extreme luxury and on the higher price range for those with a large budget. The silk is exquisite and feels so soft on the skin. 

Fleur't Intimates has very relaxed and casual sleepwear choices mixed with delightfully feminine ones. This cozy jogger with silk trim and relaxed top has a very modern silhouette and is so chic. FALLBEAUTY20 (20% off)


The Fleur't Iconic Chemise is not only beautifully constructed, but washable, wearable, and so comfortable. I've been a customer of Fleur't for decades as I love their iconic boy short. Their sleepwear is equally delightful. FALLBEAUTY20 (20% off) It's a great idea when thinking about building a sleepwear collection to buy things in the same style family. The robe, long nightgown, and chemise all go together nicely.


Rya Soleada Gown and Robe collection JEN4RYA 10% off  This gown and robe is available in gold and ivory in lustrous poly-charmeuse for easy care and wrinkle-free traveling. The Rya gowns are so unique because of their intricate embroidery details. The Rya robes and gowns are machine washable even though they look like they are dry clean only. I had great success washing mine at home on delicate... This style is for ladies who like fancier things in life and want their sleepwear to be a bit more dramatic... think Ginger Rogers. 

No sleepwear guide of mine would be complete without the Montelle Intimates Bust-Support Chemise  FALLVIBES20 (20% off) These chemises are truly delightful and come in a variety of colors. There is support and a thicker panel in the bust area which is one of the design's high-quality features. 

The Rya Swan Cover-up is always available in white and black, but often has seasonal colors available as well. JEN4RYA - 10% off This has three rows of Ostrich features that make for very graceful movements. This cover-up is machine washable.

Comment of the Week

Carolyn M. writes, "Perhaps my comment is a little odd but I wanted to share a story. Years ago I helped take care of my mother-in-law while she was dying of cancer. She and my father-in-law had always lived a simple and frugal lifestyle. When I had to help my mother-in-law get dressed I was blessed that she had nice underwear. Not fancy or expensive but pretty and fresh looking. It meant something of dignity and self-respect to me. She was not aware of it but I felt that she was still teaching me right up to the end."


Carolyn, what a beautiful story and observation. Thank you for sharing that with us.


I hope you enjoyed today's sleepwear guide. I would love to know... what's your sleepwear style? Do you prefer sporty looks, elegant nightgowns, short chemises, or tailored pj sets? Let us know and your comment could be chosen as comment of the week on the blog. Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you soon!

Why You Should Wear Presentable Undergarments + The Season's Best Styles

6:57 AM 1 Comments


It's that time of year again... our bi-yearly reminder to wear presentable undergarments. While many of us are attuned to the importance of decluttering other areas of our homes, we must not forget our undergarment drawers. Today's video will share tips and motivation on decluttering your undergarments and will provide resources for finding the best quality undergarments on the market. 




Be sure to watch today's video for detailed discussions on how to de-clutter your undergarments and how to store them properly. I recommend this undergarment organizer from Amazon that is quite affordable. 


Let's take a look at some of the excellent undergarments on the market...

I am so glad to have discovered Davy Piper. Davy Piper make comfortable, stylish, and functional undergarments for women. Their bras are very comfortable... perfect for an active lifestyle. I love their 5-pack of high-waisted panties as well. They fit beautifully, are very comfortable, and feel seamless. 



You knew Lilysilk did silk clothing and pajamas, but did you know they do undergarments too? Their silk panties are so comfortable and pretty. I love this three-pack they sell. They also sell silk bras and the prices are really competitive... especially for silk.

Lilysilk bras Daily12 for 12% off 


Let's have a look at Montelle Intimates, one of my favorite lingerie lines. They have given us the code FALLVIBES for 20% off. 

I love their t-shirt bras. I have the one in almond spice and have enjoyed wearing it regularly since reviewing it last spring. This pretty blush line is about to be released. Some of the undergarments (like the Sugar N Spice collection) are not out yet but will be soon. Check out their website for their full and current selection. Please note: the bust-support chemise is going to be reviewed in my next blogpost on sleepwear. 

Montelle Intimates Wire-Free T-Shirt Bra  FALLVIBES for 20% off 

Every lingerie drawer should have a strapless bra. You never know when you'll need one. I like this one because it also comes with straps that you can fashion toward the outfit you're wearing. The smoothing brief is an excellent, comfortable high-waisted panty. I have it in black and it's one of my favorite pairs to wear.

The Sugar N Spice collection is coming soon on Montelle Intimates. Their Sugar N Spice plunge bra is not only flattering with gorgeous detail, but also very comfortable. I like the full coverage support the panty provides. 

The Flirt Demi-lace bra is good for ladies who are not looking for padded support. It is a beautifully constructed bra and comfortable as well. It is pictured here with the Brazilian.

We can't talk about undergarments without talking about leg wear... especially going into the fall/ winter season. The way I stay warm and stylish in my dresses has everything to do with leg wear and my favorite brand is definitely Hipstik. I like the lace top, how they don't ride down, and that the tights are of a very sturdy construction (very hard to snag).

Comment of the Week

Halcyon Days writes, "I can’t believe it’s been so long since this video came out - but you have shifted my whole perspective with this one simple phrase and I can’t thank you enough. My tasks are an opportunity to practice mindfulness and gratitude where there used to be exhaustion and resentment. When I wash the dishes I’m so grateful that my family got to eat yet another nutritious meal. So many mothers didn’t get to do that today. When I fold the warm pyjamas I think of the sweet dreams my children have wearing them - snug and safe in their beds. When I wipe the toothpaste out of the sink I just feel amazed that we have clean running water. Nothing has changed in my outer circumstances but I live so beautifully now. My mind is so calm and my heart is so full of gratitude and joy. I truly delight in the mundane. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Jennifer. ❤

Halcyon Days, thank you for your amazing insight. I appreciate your comment so much and am thrilled that my homemaking videos have improved your daily life in this way. Thank you!


I hope you enjoy today's undergarment guide. Make sure you come back next time for the sleepwear guide. I would love to know what your favorite undergarment brands are. Keep the recommendations going in the comment section. Let us know your progress on de-cluttering your undergarment drawer. See you soon!

What's for Dinner? Family of 6 Meal Plan | Delicious Fall Recipes

7:12 AM 5 Comments

Welcome to a new What's for Dinner on The Daily Connoisseur. I believe that meal planning is a homemaker must and in today's video I share the highlights from my meal plan for the past two weeks. We make homemade Subway sandwiches, Salmon en Croûte, New England Clam Chowder, BBQ crock pot ribs, cheeseburgers, and creamy mushroom chicken. I hope you enjoy these delicious fall meals.


I like to write down the meal plans for the week to keep me on task. This is the meal planning notebook I like to use.


Oh, how I love subway sandwiches! We enjoy making them at home and they are just as good, if not better, than the kind you can get from the deli or sub restaurants.

Homemade Subway Sandwiches

Author: Jennifer L. Scott

Ingredients

  • French Rolls
  • shredded lettuce
  • sliced tomatoes
  • sliced pickles
  • sliced pepperoncini
  • red wine vinegar
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • Sliced provolone cheese (or cheese of your choice)
  • selection of choice deli meats 
  • mustard
  • mayonnaise

Instructions

  1. Toast your French Rolls for a few minutes in a hot oven (optional). Open the rolls and assemble the sandwiches. Place the lettuce, tomatoes, pickle, pepperoncini on the rolls. Drizzle with red wine vinegar and olive oil and season with salt and pepper. On the other half of the roll, layer your cheese and deli meats to your preference. Spread the mayonnaise and mustard on the meat and close the sandwiches. Slice in half and serve.

Salmon en Croûte is a decidedly fancy dish, but is so easy to make. I hope you enjoy this excellent recipe. The best time to make this is when you have leftover creamed spinach. If you do not have leftover creamed spinach, you can make a simple spinach mixture by combining the following: 

Creamed Spinach: 
Sauté 20 oz of spinach in a lightly oiled pan until fully cooked. Combine 4oz cream cheese, 1/4 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, and 1/8 cup shredded parmesan in the same pan the spinach was cooked in. Cook on low heat until the sauce is melted nicely. Once the sauce is warm and mixed together completely, add the cooked spinach and season with salt and pepper.


Salmon en Croûte

Author: Jennifer L. Scott
An elegant, yet simple dish that will "wow" your family and guests.

Ingredients

  • 1 salmon filet (around 1 1/2 - 2 lbs)
  • 3-4 cups of prepared creamed spinach (leftovers work best here)
  • 1 sheet of thawed puff pastry
  • salt and pepper
  • egg wash

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out your thawed puff pastry on a floured surface. Remove the skin from your salmon filet, if necessary. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Spread around 1 1/2 cups of creamed spinach on the puff pastry. Use cold, leftover creamed spinach here as it will be thicker and will stay in place. Place your salmon filet on top and top with the remaining creamed spinach. Brush the margins of the puff pastry with egg wash. Pull the puff pastry over the salmon until it is wrapped like an envelope. Turn the salmon filet around so the puff pastry seam is facing down. Lightly score the top of the pastry with a knife. Brush remaining egg wash on top. Bake in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked and the puff pastry is golden brown.

New England Clam Chowder is an elegant, yet hearty dish. This would be amazing served in a homemade bread bowl... I'll have to do that next time! I served this with a salmon, pomegranate, goat cheese salad. It was a knock-out meal. Ben and I loved it! 

I'm trying out these beautiful, Aropeti placemats and napkins from John Robshaw. These are making an appearance in my holiday gift guide. 

New England Clam Chowder

Author: Jennifer L. Scott

Ingredients

  • 4 strips of bacon
  • 3 carrots, chopped (or 3 ribs of celery... or both!)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 medium potatoes, cubed 
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 oz clam juice
  • 3 tsp chicken bouillon 
  • 1/2 tsp chopped thyme (fresh or dried)
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups of half and half (divided)
  • 1 can of clam sauce or 2 smaller cans of chopped clams
  • pepper for taste

Instructions

  1. Brown the bacon until crisp in a large stock pot. Remove the bacon and reserve the fat. Brown the chopped onion and garlic in the bacon fat for 2 minutes. Add the sliced carrot or celery and continue to cook for 5 minutes. Add the potatoes, water, clam juice, bouillon, thyme. Simmer until the potatoes are tender, around 15 to 20 minutes. Stir the flour into one cup of the half and half to create a thickener. Pour into the soup. Pour the remaining half and half in as well as the clam sauce or clams. If you do not have half and half, use one cup of cream and one cup of whole milk. Crumble bacon on top of each individual serving.

We have either cheeseburgers or hot dogs once a week in our home. They are easy, crowd-pleasing meals and never really get old. Our cheeseburger recipes vary, but usually Ben grills the hamburger patties on the grill and tops them with cheddar cheese. I then lay out an assortment of toppings on a tray (I'm using this beautiful recycled marble slab from John Robshaw) and everyone can assemble their own burger to their tastes. This time we are using Hawaiian Sweet Roll buns, which were delightful. The toppings we used this time were the following: sliced beefsteak tomatoes, sliced onions, romaine lettuce, and sliced pickles


I made slow cooker BBQ ribs, which couldn't be easier... so there will be no recipe card for this one. I placed about 3 lbs of baby back pork ribs in the slow cooker and topped with 2 cups of bottled BBQ sauce (we like Sweet Baby Ray's). Then I cooked the ribs on low for 8 hours. For side dishes, I made baked potatoes. I rubbed the cleaned potatoes with olive oil and sprinkled the skin with Moton's Season All. Then I baked them for one hour at 350 degrees F. I topped the potatoes with butter, sour cream, and chopped chives. Cornbread and mixed veggies were also served. This was easy, hearty, and delicious! 


I created this creamy mushroom chicken inspired by the delightful Marry-Me Chicken a few weeks ago. This was delicious and a wonderful fall meal. I served the chicken with roasted acorn squash. To roast, cut the squash in half and take out the seeds. Place in a Bain Marie, top with butter and maple syrup, and place in the oven and roast for 1 hour at 400 degrees. 


Creamy Mushroom Chicken

Author: Jennifer L. Scott

Ingredients

  • 4 -5 chicken breasts 
  • lemon pepper seasoning (enough to season your chicken breasts)
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • 1 packet of baby Bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbs thyme, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  1. Season the chicken on both sides with lemon pepper. Fry in a hot  oven-proof pan with the butter and olive oil until both sides are brown... 3 - 4 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan and cover with aluminum foil. Place the mushrooms in the same pan and cook until they are brown and soft, around 10 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute. Add the chicken broth, cream, and thyme and continue to cook until the sauce thickens. Add the chicken breasts back to the skillet. Place in a preheated oven (350 degrees F) for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked through. Serve the chicken with extra sauce on top.
