christmas gift: wine decanters

Because so many of my friends love wine, ahem - Rosalind's Christmas tree skirt below...

I thought decanters would make a great holiday gift. 
Find below some of my faves.

or as we like our decanters in Texas...

um..truly not my style, but I found them amusing.
Anthropolgie suggests that if you like these decanters you
might also like this.  I'll take ten!

Are you a red or white wine gal?

lust list: metallics II

In addendum to my metallics/gold Lust List, I have decided to continue with the other well known metal - Ag. My old roommate was a science teacher and I often enjoyed being quizzed over the periodic table elements. How well do you remember your element symbols? What can I say, I'm always looking for a new way to impress the men...

Quick name the symbol for iron!

Quiz yourself here.

cinnamon chip scones

Sometimes for fun I bake. I mean who doesn't? A couple summers ago - the summer of I Gotta Feeling (I mark summers by songs) - I went through a scone obsession. My friend Rosalind and I discovered this pumpkin cinnamon chip scone recipe, and it became our go-to. This recipe is particularly perfect for the holiday season due to its use of cinnamon chips. If you've never baked with them before stop everything you're doing and make these! 

Thanks to Ros for the pictures.

Recipe found here
We've never made them with the 
icing but it sounds good!

Another killer (literally - look at all 
that buttah)/one of our fave scone recipes found here

Have you ever baked scones?

What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

At the moment all I can think about is off the shoulder sweaters. I have no interest in channeling to movie Flash Dance, but there's something subtly sexy and chic about them - plus there's the added bonus that they're comfortable.

Leave it to Victoria Secret to make a sweater seem sexy. 

I already ordered mine...oops:)

lauren wedding

Lauren Bush's wedding photos are BEYOND gorgeous. I love her dress. I think Kate Middleton has some competition for the best long-sleeved wedding dress of the year. The wedding was held in Colorado. The background is breathtaking.

What do you think of long sleeved wedding dresses?

lust list: golden girl

I haven't put together a lust list in forever! Today I couldn't help but post about one of my favorite holiday colors - GOLD. Even when it comes to jewelry, I'm a golden girl all the way. Below are a few of my fave golden accessories of the moment. 'Tis the season to go for the gold.

PS - Um, gold loafers at the new C Wonder store in Soho. Have you seen them? I'll go take a pic of them for you today!

Are you a golden girl?
