For those of you out there celebrating the Chinese New Year, I wish you health, luck and prosperity. The year of the Sheep is upon us and my authority on the matter is Lainey's mother, The Squawking Chicken. According to her, we're in for a gentler year as compared to last, which was the year of the Horse. Where last year felt competitive and intense, this year is about taking care of one another, togetherness, and valuing creative enlightenment over monetary growth. Me, I'm not washing my hair till Sunday (that's Wednesday to Sunday. A hair evolution from a blow-out, to a headband, then a braid, next to top knot, then finally to a hat. And I'm not sweeping my floors either, you don't want to wash or sweep away any of the luck that may have found you, would you? Again, in the opinion of the Squawking Chicken, just to be on the safe side, make a dentist appointment or get your cholesterol checked to keep bad luck at bay. But for now, here are some little gems from around the inter-web.

This roasted broccoli recipe is a go-to lunch or late night snack I find comforting. Often, I'll make a quick yogurt dip with some minced garlic, a good squeeze of lemon juice, lots of salt and pepper and go to town on this dish (paired with a nicely chilled glass of viognier, what could be better?). I also love how blogger Luisa Weiss titled it "From the Trenches," maybe therein lies the comfort?
Bar none, hands down, without a doubt, I am most excited to see Rosamund Pike walk the red carpet at the Oscars. I am completely obsessed with her style. While others hated, I LOVED her black rosebud Dior dress for the SAG awards.
