Drink: Champagne Cocktails

New Year’s Eve is around the corner and in my haste and excitement to celebrate the new year, I picked up a few bottle of champagne. When I came home, I realized they were extra dry champagne, which is not a personal favorite of mine. But when life gives you lemons, make lemonade, right? So … Continue reading

Watch: Take this Waltz

I’m a fan of understated movies that are realistic and beautifully shot and if you are too, you should definitely check out “Take this Waltz”. The movie stars Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen as a seemingly happy couple living in Toronto, but when Williams’ character becomes attracted to her artist neighbor (played by the extremely … Continue reading

Eat: Sugar Plum Pudding with Anise and Cajeta

With the freak snow storm that happened in my area, my Christmas lights still hanging, and Christmas movies still airing,  it is hard to believe that Christmas has come and gone. One movie I saw a couple days ago was the Macaulay Culkin version of  “The Nutcracker”. One of my favorite songs from that ballet … Continue reading

Wear: Solange Knowles’ Style

It can’t be easy being the little sister of one of the famous musicians in the world, but Solange Knowles seems to be handling it with grace and in style. In recent years, Solange has become something of a style icon in the fashion world, even eclipsing her sister, Beyonce, on numerous best dressed lists, … Continue reading

Explore: Skatafell, Iceland

I’ve been dreaming of a white Christmas…for quite some time now. It’s been a while seen I’ve actually seen snow or ice on Christmas day. This probably has to do with the fact that I grew up in the Midwest, but I’ve been living on the east coast for 5 years and I still haven’t … Continue reading

Live: Christmas Wrappings

I think I may be the easiest person to go Christmas shopping for. Seriously. Just give me a check or a gift card to one of my favorite stores like TopShop or H&M and I’m a happy camper. Yet, I’m a fan of Christmas gifts and seeing big, boxes wrapped in shiny wrapping paper tied … Continue reading

Appreciate: Claire Oswalt

When I was younger, I used to make and play with paper dolls, but none of the dolls I made could compare to the ones artist Claire Oswalt creates. Calling Oswalt’s work, “paper dolls” doesn’t do her justice. She expertly uses paper, wood, and other material to create marionette-like dolls that have moveable joints. What … Continue reading

Listen: Ellie Goulding

Songs: “Starry Eyed“, “Anything Can Happen“, and ” Hanging On” I remember the first time I heard “Lights” by Ellie Goulding. It was like nothing that I had heard on mainstream radio: a mix of electronic music with an ethereal feminine voice, I was obsessed.Then like most songs that are on the radio, it became … Continue reading

Drink: Pomegranate Prosecco Spritzer

Since the pomegranate chicken post was such a hit, I decided to look into more festive ways that this fruit could be used during the holidays. As mentioned before, pomegranates are loaded with antioxidants, which is something we could all use a little extra of during the holiday season. Sipping on pomegranate juice is boring, … Continue reading

Watch: Elf

I am currently suffering from a cold and it’s been nothing but chicken noodle soup and Sudafed for the past couple days. I have taken this opportunity as a way to re-watch movies that I love to watch during the holidays. One go to favorite movie of mine to watch besides “Love Actually“ and “The … Continue reading

Eat: Pomegranate Chicken

Christmas is less than 2 weeks away and I’m already planning ahead to what I want to serve for Christmas dinner. Of course, there will be turkey and some sort of pie, maybe apple or pumpkin, but I would to serve a chicken dish. The flavor options are endless when it comes to chicken, but … Continue reading

Wear: Allison Williams’ Style

Allison Williams is one of those people that you want to hate because she’s so perfect, but you can’t because she seems like the nicest, most down to earth people. She’s absolutely beautiful, her dad, Brian Williams, is amazing, she sings, she acts, she went to Yale, and she dresses well. Ever since she started … Continue reading

Live: New Uses for Christmas Lights

Going from one extreme to another, I’m sure visitors of Christmas light shows and festivals often go home and wish they could recreate what they saw. If I could create a Venus de Milo light display like the one at the Lyon Festival of Lights, but alas I have to settle with $5 CVS lights … Continue reading
