listen: “Underneath the Tree”

I feel like an musician has official made it once he or she releases a Christmas album. You can have 20 Grammys, but if you haven’t released a Christmas single or album, you still have work to do ( do you hear me, Kanye West?). The latest artist to release to a Christmas album is … Continue reading

drink: Vanilla Bean Hot Buttered Rum

I have recently become a fan of Earl Gray tea. It is my go-to drink in the morning when I am about to start a 8 hour work day. Wanting to mix things up a little bit, I decided to add French vanilla creamer in my tea and the result was life-altering delicious. After conducting … Continue reading

eat: Baked Persimmons

I’m embarrassed to say that up until a couple days, I had no idea what a persimmon was. It’s a fruit that resembles an unripe tomato that I tend to see around the holiday season, but have ignored for the more familiar seasonal apple and pumpkin. I was feeling adventurous recently I decided to try … Continue reading

live: Holiday Windows for the Home

If it wasn’t an advertisement to burglars about the possessions in your home, I believe more people would have dress up their windows around the holidays. With the holidays in ¬†full swing, popular retailers like Macy’s, Bergdorf Goodman, and Barney’s are debuting their infamous decadent holiday store windows, which was a major inspiration for this … Continue reading

listen: “Christmas Lights”

Thanksgiving has come and gone and today is the first Monday in December, which means in my eyes (and apparently my eyes only), that it’s officially the right time for Christmas to begin. For the next four weeks, “Thoughts.Suggestions.Lifestyle” will switch open the music page and suggest Christmas songs that you should listen to during … Continue reading

eat: Banana Pudding

Today is Labor Day which means the family will be barbecuing but that is not what I am not looking forward to the most. My neighbor will be bringing over her delicious homemade banana pudding. Banana pudding isn’t something I crave, but when it’s placed in front of me, I want absolutely nothing else. The … 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

Watch: The Polar Express

I was one of those jaded people who stopped believing in Santa Claus at a young age. I specifically remember asking a Barbie dream house when I was 4 years old (and I am still waiting, by the way). This ‘horrifying’ experience is probably why I love “The Polar Express” so much and it’s one … Continue reading

Eat: Lemon Blackberry Tart

Right now, as I am writing this, I am craving something sweet and I believe that this lemon blackberry tart would satisfy my craving. As much as I love pie, it is a lot less work and preparation to make a tart and you still get a tasty result. I love lemon-based tarts, they are … Continue reading

Live: Christmas Decorations -The Tree

Last night, the Christmas tree in front of Rockerfeller Center was lit, and if that isn’t the international symbol for the official beginning of the holiday season, I don’t know what is. After watching performer after performer sing holiday classics in front of the tree, it made think about when I have to head to … Continue reading

Watch: Love Actually

Christmas is around the corner (or so it feels like it is based on all the holiday shopping commercials I’ve seen). With that being said, I would like to focus on some of my favorite holiday movies and I’ll start with “Love Actually”. It’s hard to believe that this movie came out almost 10 years … Continue reading
