Who’s Ready for Hanukkah?

Hanukkah, finally returning to a later date this year (as opposed to last year’s Thanksgivikkah celebrations) begins tomorrow evening! If you’re readying the brisket and breaking out your Menorah, I’m wishing you a joyous Festival of Lights. If you’re still in the dark about what, exactly, Hanukkah/Chanukah is, exactly. Allow me to enlighten you. Now, there are two things you need to properly celebrate Hanukkah in style. Three if you count sufganiyot, and you should. But the other two are simple. One, you will want to (and need to) break it down to this new song, in addition to your Read More →

Smart Watches: Which is Best?

When it comes to smart watches (and smart jewelry in general) there’s no doubt that this year has seen a booming surge in popularity for wearable technology. And while we finally saw the long anticipated Apple Watch, it’s still not even out yet and the market is already saturated. Who knows how the watch-that-would-be-king will change the game (we’ll have a better idea this time next year) but the existing watches on the market are nothing to scoff at. Smart watches have come a long way, and there are 8 in particular competing for the highest GPA. So, which of Read More →

How to Choose Your Wedding Jewelry

But, if you’re overwhelmed with decisions, don’t know where to start, or have snapped up every piece of bridal jewelry you’ve Read More →

Friday Faves: Pretty Cookie Heavy Today

My favorite gossip blogger is handicapping the “race” for People’s Sexiest Man Alive. I still haven’t gotten over the year that was non-Gosling, but I’m very much looking forward to reading her in-depth arguments for and against the front runners. Even though I agree with her unwavering prediction, it’s fun to break down the other contenders’ pro/cons. It’s Always Sunny’s latest season is now on Netflix (and Hulu, which never happens) so I know what I’ll be baking treats to on Sunday. Love the very scientific explanation of this recipe too. And yeah, after that I’ll probably need to rinse Read More →

Thirsty Thursday: Purple People Eater

Well, it’s happy hour, despite what the foreboding snow clouds outside my window are saying. For a transplanted Floridian, you need to forgive me, but the phrase “Happy Hour” still conjures images of swaying palm trees, an ocean breeze (or ripples in the pool at The Colony), and wedges and a sun dress. So while faux fur vests are incredibly adorable and cabernet (along with its warming effect) is, indeed, my grown up beverage of choice, happy hour by a fireplace still feels weird.
