Well this year I continued in what just may become an annual Christmas Eve ritual and I made butter cookie cutter cookies. Last year was the first year I did this, I thought it would be complicated—like you had to be Martha Stewart or a professional baker to pull this off. But it was easier then I thought. I was encouraged after making homemade biscotti which was not difficult either.
Yes winter is here and with it comes cold temperatures, gray days and parks that are closed. This park has a cute little dog park with in it and beautiful dog statue. My friend Laurie and I wanted to shoot around the statue but alas this section of the park was closed. It could have been that it was thanksgiving day weekend, or maybe it is just closed during the winter months, but we had to settle for shooting outside the dog park, oh well there is always summer. And as you can see I am most certainly not wearing a summer outfit. We are talking full on winter bundling here.
Last week I shared with you a wonderful gift set from Estee Lauder that I purchased for my mom for Christmas. Well today I am sharing with you another wonderful gift, but this time it is from Kiehl’s and is for my sister.

This past week I was feeling frumpy and and in need of a change so I decided to book a hair cut. Mistake. Yes, it happened again—I went in with high expectations and walked out annoyed, with bangs I could have cut myself. The only difference being, that if I cut them myself I would have ended up with results closer to what I had in mind.
Acouple of weeks ago on one of those bright, crisp fall days I was feeling inspired and decided to to a a little window shopping on my lunch break
Fall is here in all it’s glory—the air is crisp, the sky is a brilliant blue, the leaves have started to change and it is officially sweater weather. As we know knits are big for fall this year, so I have the perfect excuse to stock up on this classic staple. Plus who does’t love to shop for sweaters in the fall
As any self respecting fashion and life-style blogger knows, great photography is a must. I purchased my first DSLR about a year and a half ago and have been steadily learning how to use it. There is a lot to know and learn if you want move beyond shooting in auto mode.
Acouple of weeks ago I attended a fun and fashionable event at the MadeWell store on the upper east side of Manhattan. The event was a pop up store within a store, for the founder and artist of the popular blog Made By Girl which I wrote about in this post. Today I am going to share with you the wonderful items that I purchased that day. I
Afew weeks ago I headed out for day of shopping, lunch and strolling with a good friend of mine and we head to the town of Huntington which is located on the north shore of Long Island. Huntington is a beautiful town with a wonderful downtown shopping district. And I must say it is pretty hard not to part with one’s money walking along this shopping avenue…
This past weekend I attended a wonderful event at Madewell in New York City. It was a pop up shop for the talented blogger and artist Jen Ramos of the well known blog Made By Girl. This co-sponsored event was the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon with fruity cocktails, tasty hourderves, plenty of fellow bloggers to chat with and of course lots of beautiful ar
