Good morning, lovelies! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend celebrating with your loved ones.

We celebrated with both families. Hosted Xmas Eve and Xmas morning for J's family at our apartment and then we headed on out to see my family Xmas afternoon and evening. And I am off again from work today so we're continuing the celebrating at my house. My siblings are coming into the city for some more festivities. Let the fun continue!

Can't wait to hear all about your holiday and to find out what goodies were left under your tree :)

Holiday Kisses & A Guest Post!

nullnullnull


Happy Friday, loves! I'm so happy that it's Friday. I finally have off from work and now I can focus on getting everything done for the arrival of my company tomorrow.

Lots to do and not a moment to spare so I'm going to be real quick today. So sorry that I have been so absent this week. I promise to be by soon. I miss you all terribly!

In the meantime, you can stop on over at La Vie... J'aime today where I am sharing what I'm hoping to find in my stocking this year :)

Wishing you the most wonderful holiday weekend filled with lots of love and joy!

Last Minute List

nullPhotobucketnullnullPhotobucket

Good morning, loves! And happy Wednesday to you!

Can you believe there's only 3 more days until Christmas Eve??? I have a bunch of last minute things to do. Cookies, menu finalizing, last minute gifts, wrapping and getting the apartment ready for a house full of guests on Saturday. It'll all get done but I have little time for much else. Which explains why I was MIA yesterday. Sorry, I'll try to stop my in the very near future :)

Enjoy the day and good luck getting any last minute things done!

Magical Moments

Good morning, loves! How's the week treating you all so far?

Well it's certainly starting to feel a whole lot like Christmas over here. Especially after getting to experience Handel's Messiah in all it's glory last night. What an incredible experience. And my seats were front row center! I had goosebumps for hours after!

Also helping the shape the mood....the temperatures have dropped, the wreath is hung, the presents are wrapped and the house is finally all done up. There's still lots to do, baking, cooking and a little rearranging, but I feel like everything's coming into place and I'm just going to enjoy this magical time of year. The past few years have taught me what is important in life so there's no point in sweating the small stuff. In the end the holidays are about spending time with your loved ones, right?

How are you all doing with your holiday preparations?

Enjoy the day, sweets!

In memory of my best friend Derek who passed away almost a year ago. He would have been celebrating his 40th birthday today. I cherish all the moments we had together and I remember and celebrate him today and each and every day.

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

nullnullnull


Good morning, loves! How was your weekend? Hope you all had a wonderful one.

I had a good one but am finally starting to feel a bit of the holiday crunch. I can't really complain, it's still relatively mellow compared to every other year, but I didn't really have much downtime. Just focusing on getting ready for the festivities that we will be hosting in less than a week. I have to admit that I did get to squeeze in a ghost walk of lower Manhattan and a screening of Rudolph and Frosty on Sunday night so it wasn't all work and no fun. :)

And there's some more holiday fun yet to come. Tonight we're going to see Handel's Messiah at Carnegie Hall. I've never been and have always wanted to see it so I'm really excited!

Have a wonderful day, sweets!

xoxo

A December To Remember & A Funny Story

PhotobucketPhotobucketnullPhotobucket


Good morning, loves! And happy December to you all! Thank you so much for the well wishes yesterday. I stayed home from work and rested up and I can happily report that I'm feeling much better. And just in time for the holiday rush to begin!

I'm so looking forward to all this season has to offer. The shopping, the shimmer & shine, the parties, the annual xmas cookie bake off, the look of pretty presents around the tree, and the overall festive holiday cheer. And now that the Rockefeller tree is lit up, the season has officially began! Can't wait to walk on over to check it out later on today.

Oh and before I go I wanted to share a funny little snippet. One day last month I ran out of work in a panic because J was being rushed to the ER with some pain, which we later found out was a cyst.

On my mad dash to find a taxi a woman stopped me on the street to see if I wanted to try out a lip plumper and be interviewed for a morning talk show. Normally I would have said no because I was in a rush and totally out of my mind with worry but the fact that she said lip plumper intrigued me. I developed the Lip Fusion lip plumper years ago and wouldn't you know it, that's the product she handed me to test! I couldn't say no. I mean what are the chances, right?

Well here is that interview...If you go to 3:06 of the tape you'll find me looking pretty intense in all my worry. But I have to say that my testimony is 100% true. The product definitely does work. I swear I'm not being biased. :)

Hope you all have a wonderful day and a wonderful December ahead :)

xoxo

All I Got For Xmas!


Good morning, lovelies! We're still digging out from the big snowstorm that hit Sunday into Monday. It dropped more than 18 inches here in NYC and I ended up being snowed in, unable to get to the office. No complaints here though. I just love a snow day. Got to stay indoors and enjoy some of my presents a little more. I was really lucky this year and I got everything that I asked for!


Melinda Maria Oxidized Link Ring
ASOS Feather Clutch
The Gospel According to Coco Chanel
Urban Outfitters Over The Knee Socks
Crystal stacked bracelet
Pink Texting Gloves {I also got some black ones :)}
Ecote Antiqued Metallic Beaded Clutch

Lucky girl, indeed! What did you guys get this year?

Snowflakes Falling All Over Town


Good morning, lovelies! How was your holiday? I had a wonderful one spending Christmas Eve and morning hosting J's family and then seeing my family Christmas afternoon. Everyone was in such a joyous mood. We decorated cookies, sang Christmas carols and J & I even played Santa for the first time ever arranging all of the gifts around the tree for the Christmas morning unveiling. It was just perfect!

Sunday was a lazy day spent indoors avoiding the blizzard we are being hit with and also catching up on some much needed rest.

Today I'm planning on making my way outdoors to survey the snow covered scenario. It's the first major snowstorm of the season and I have to admit, I'm pretty excited about it.

How did you all spend the holiday? Hope Santa was good to you all! xoxo

Sweet Holiday!



Well we're almost here. One more day until Christmas Eve and I've been baking up a storm for days. Can't wait to dig into all of the sweetness tomorrow!

Today I'll be busy getting ready for my hosting duties. I just found out that I'll have some overnight guests tonight so the festivities will be starting sooner than I thought. Better get a move on!

Wishing you and your loved ones a most joyous holiday filled with lots of goodness & cheer! xoxo

Blue Christmas


Happy Wednesday, lovelies! Hope you're all having a wonderful, stress free week filled with lots of holiday cheer. Today is my last day of work until after the weekend and tonight I have my work holiday party. The perfect way to kick off the festivities!

Lately I'm loving the thought of a blue Christmas. Maybe I'm being swayed by the numerous Tiffany bags that I see walking down the streets these days. Who knows, but one things for sure, I wouldn't be feeling very blue if I got one of those little boxes under my tree this year :)
