    As 2013 comes to an end (less than 4 hrs left here on the east coast), like everyone else, I can’t help but take a moment to look back at all the fabulous things that have happened. And well, if we’re being honest, whenever I think back to a particular moment, my first thought is […]

  • Easy Holiday Hors d’oeuvres


    Popping back in again today, to share with you some easy holiday hors d’oeuvres that you can whip up in no time. The week before Christmas, Olivia, Christine, Dana, and I hosted a little NYC Blogger Holiday Party.  The theme was 1960’s Mad Men. Once Olivia picked the theme, I knew I had the perfect outfit… […]

    With the ball dropping, in less than 48 hours, it’s time to get your act together and figure out the most important details… what are you going to wear? If you ask me sequins are always a must! Not that I need an excuse like NYE to wear them, but I know for some of […]

    I hope you all are enjoying your holiday! I was lucky enough to be able to spend Christmas home, with my family in California, even if it was short and sweet.  We’re headed back to NYC tonight, but before we go, I will for sure be indulging in one two helpings of leftovers and stepping […]

    The finally week leading up to Christmas has been packed for me.  I can imagine the same for you too?  Last week I was in Houston for work, got back Saturday afternoon, headed to a small birthday celebration for a friend that night and then jetted off to California for Christmas with my love Sunday […]

    The last full week before Christmas is here! Can you believe it?!?  I still have so much to do, it’s a little overwhelming, but I also know things will work themselves out, they always do (or at least that’s what I keep telling myself).  When it comes to gifts, I’m doing most of my shopping […]

  • Taste: Weekend Edition // Grandma Carmichael’s Grits


    Growing up, one of my favorite comfort foods that I will never forget is a nice warm helping of Grandma Carmichael’s grits on a cold winter morning.  Most people I find, make their greats a little creamier, but I prefer the more solid consistency of Carmichael Grits.  I was lucky enough to be able to […]

    With the second to last weekend approaching, I’m slightly freaking out over here! I have shopping that I have barely started, parties that I have nothing to wear for, and my christmas tree is still hanging out with just the lights (gotta finish the decorating tonight when I get back from Miami).  All this travel […]
