Confession: I know it’s supposed to be over-rated and the like, but I’d like to just say that New Year’s Eve is one of my favorite holidays! For one, it’s characterized by champagne, sequins, and just about anything sparkly, so what’s not to love about that? Not to mention, I have a real, inexplicable fondness… read more


Monochromatic Monday :: A Rockin’ New Year

My New Year’s Eve outfits (along with my chosen method of ringing it in) have ranged from glitzy LBD’s to flannel pajamas, and since this year’s plans include a swanky dinner downtown followed by a champagne-popping party… well, my look will definitely include a little sparkle. I’m planning to accessorize with the new rock pendant… read more


Field Trip :: Champagne Tasting at Goodall’s

When it comes to sparkling wine, let’s just say I’m not picky. No matter the bottle, grape or region, something about the first taste of those bubbles always feels luxurious. Since I’m hosting a big New Year’s Eve bash this year, I’ve literally got “15 bottles of Champagne” on the list for my next grocery trip…… read more

Happy weekend everyone, and more importantly, happy (almost) New Year!

New Year’s Eve :: Tinsel Inspiration

Ah yes, New Years Eve… the perfect last-hoorah to a season of ceaseless wining and dining. And though I’m not sure when it became customary to don sparkles and sequins and glitter (oh my), I have to wonder if there could possibly be a better tradition.
