Gab Loves: Early Black Friday Sales

Gab Loves: #BlackFriday Edition — Shop the best Black Friday Sales ahead of everyone on @SavvyHome



It’s not just Christmas decorations that seem to come earlier every year. Some Black Friday sales now start as early as Tuesday — maybe we should just rename it #BlackWeek? Some of my favorite brands have kicked off their sales early this year and you can be sure I won’t wait until everything is sold out!

I’m kicking off my #BlackFriday shopping this year with Christmas gifts, ornaments and winter essentials. I already have my eyes set on a few things: calf hair clutch and pumps to finish off my holiday outfits; Alexandra Von Furstenberg boxes for a fantastic gift; marble coasters and quirky ornaments to bring to the hostess; festive sconces and sheepskins to spruce up the house. As for winter essentials, I’ll be staying warm in a navy blue puffer jacket and cashmere snood thank you very much —accessorized with a shearling satchelHere are a few Black Friday sales that are already in full swing.

Restauranteurs know a thing or two about kitchens, which is why I’m fascinated by this Brooklyn row house kitchen — whipped into shape by the couple behind restaurant & bar Henry Public. Jen Albano and Matt Dawson renovated the kitchen with architect Nick Robertson of Studio Piano Nobile. It wasn’t gutted, it’s not perfect, but it was renovated in keeping with the charm of the 1880s building: wood beams and original farmhouse sink included. It was updated to today’s taste with simple white marble countertops, muddy green shaker style cabinetry and a patterned tile backsplash. The built-in breakfast nook was built in the 1920s got a fresh coat of paint and a bit of styling. The result: a heart-of-the-home kitchen in it’s purest simplest form. See the full house on Lonny.

I’m not much of a summer cook. I whip up the occasional gourmet salad, but my skills come out when I’m making hearty Winter dishes: lasagna, chilli, risotto, chicken cacciatore… There’s just something about cool weather that makes me want to splurge on gourmet ingredients and spend hours in the kitchen with good music, good wine and good friends. Here are my favorite recent cookbooks to get you back into cooking. If a book titled “Thug Kitchen: Cook Like you Give a Fuck” doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will.

Worthy Links: 7 Classic Thanksgiving Classics with a Twist — on @SavvyHome

I’ve got food on the brain these days. Which is perfectly acceptable given that Thanksgiving is around the corner and nobody goes on a juice cleanse in November anyway, right? Case in point—I’m the girl who ordered bocconcini flatbread, butternut squash agnolotti AND fried chicken with a healthy dose of red wine at dinner last Saturday and while watching my girlfriends obediently pick at their white tuna, rapini and salad (editor’s note: we went to Balsam Inn and it was all really delicious)…  So I’m filling up my Pinterest with carb-mania: spaghetti squash fritters, persimmon crepes, cauliflower brie gratin and this celery root purée…

While you’re gearing up for Thanksgiving, set the table with this tabletop, two ways; find the perfect gift to bring your host, gear up for the perfect soirée and shop these pre-Black-Friday sales.
