Anyone else a little freaked out by the fact that this is the last Weekend Notes of 2012? Christmas has come and gone, and we have one more night of revelry ahead before it’s time to buckle down and conquer New Year’s resolutions, get our butts in gear with January fitness goals and detox from too many holiday cookies and spiked hot cocoa. Anyone planning to do a cleanse regimen in January? I’ve never done one before, so I’d love to hear about your experiences… I know the juice ones have been super popular lately, and I think I’d be interested in trying a not-too-extreme version for a few days. Anyway, how were everyone’s Christmases and Hanukkahs? We had such a relaxing and fun couple of days with both our parents and my sister. The number of gifts that Phoebe received was a little ridiculous… I’ll be dressing her up in new outfits for weeks! I was super excited to unveil the New Year’s Eve collaboration we did with kate spade new york this week. If you haven’t yet, be sure to check it out for loads of NYE inspiration. Hope yours are glitzy, celebratory and involve lots of champagne. And don’t miss these great links from the week!

Made a big pot of this last night, and it was the perfect cure for a month of holiday indulgence.

Of course, the holidays aren’t quite over yet – there’s still time to mix up one or two of these pretty drinks!

Speaking of which, here’s more great inspiration for New Year’s Eve fêtes.

So proud of my girl Jen and the amazing year she’s had!

The loveliest gelato that I’m dying to try.

This winter dinner party looks like pure fun and deliciousness.

The quintessentially cool couple…and their terribly romantic love story.

*and a few fun things you may have missed!

My favorite Christmas gift ever.

Claire’s concrete planters are the perfect DIY to tackle in the new year.

Jeanine made a salad that combines my favorite things.
