    There's no thing as too much sparkle on New Year's Eve.
    After the Christmas rush, there's nothing I like better than getting cozy and staying in to watch the ball drop.  It's so relaxing to stay at home and I love the idea of making the night extra special by dressing up a bit.  I'll be ordering in my favorite Chinese...
  • Sporty Chic Tartan

    Tartan has been so popular this fall that it's becoming nearly impossible to find any left in stores- much to my frustration.  I really wanted a pair of slim tartan pants from J.Crew but they're all gone- so sad I know.  Luckily, I found a substitute pair while desperately browsing the inter-webs.  They’re by Tommy Hilfiger and I think they're just as...

  • Christmas Gift Guide for Her

    Shopping is the best medicine.- author unknown
    I can't believe Christmas time is already here.  It literally seems like last Christmas was just yesterday.  I guess that's what happens when you get older. Everyone says time flies but I never actually realized it until recently.  Another horrifying side effect of growing older: you start to call teenagers 'young people'.  Anyways, with...
