Winter Vacation 2013

Hi guys!  I'm back!!  
I'm sorry I have neglected this little place.  Like workouts, once I missed a string of days, I had a hard time getting back into it. #feelinglame 

Last week, I was in Aspen, Colorado, our go-to vacation place.  For those of you who have been reading my blog for some time, you know that this is where my husband, Randy grew up.  It's now become a place I'd love to call home, hopefully sometime in the future while I'm still young and mobile! I just cannot get enough of the fresh air, beautiful mountains and its trails, and all the small towns and their quaintness.  

Here are some of the photos I took en route and during the trip. I already miss the place so much...

I can't believe December is almost over! I always get somewhat melancholy once all the winter holidays are done and over with. How about you?   

Luckily, we have one more day of fun before we say goodbye to 2013.  We are off to see Billy Joel perform at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, on New Year's Eve (except I lost the tickets so, we'll see if this happens!!!).  I can't wait.  It'll be a blast. If you are staying home, I also envy you too.  I do fear the traffic and rowdy party peeps on NYE...   

Happy last Monday of 2013~~

Office Party

'Tis the season for office parties. A lot of us have both our own as well as our significant other's party to attend.  Here's the thing about office parties. You want to look and feel great, a little bit sexy (I get it), but not TOO sexy (you know what I mean - the short short skirt and the deep deep cleavage).  I also find that you can go the LBD route (safe) or something a bit more glitzy (fun).  Between the two, if you have a pair classic heels, statement accessories, you are good to go with either the traditional black dress OR something a bit out of the ordinary.  I don't think you can go wrong with either of the two options above.  If you haven't found your office party dress yet, good luck, have fun, and stay kosher :)

p.s. Kelley - tx for your suggestion! 

dress option no.1 (bcbgeneration via piperlime)//statement necklace (sabine via piperlime)//sharp heels (zara)//easy clutch (j.crew)//simple bracelet (madewell)//dress option no. 2 (parker serena via piperlime)

Gift Guide

Last year, I did a 12 day gift idea posting for 12 days.  THAT ma dear, was a lot of work.  This year, I'm going bail out on that.  I'll just mention ideas as they come (hopefully, not after the holidays).  Here are some modestly priced things your girlfriends, sisters, mothers will enjoy, in my opinion :) 
Do feel free to share this with your significant other.  
Um, honey, I really really want the jammies, bracelet and the tote.

Monday Schmonday

That's how I feel about Mondays, especially after a long weekend. Ok, ok, enough with the negative 'tude.  I had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and have a lot to be thankful for, and honestly, am still amaaaaazed by how my turkey came out.  The verdict from the family was that it was the most tender and tasty turkey they've ever had!  Who knew a pescatarian can cook a turkey so good??! I did have a good amount of work to do on Saturday and Sunday.  But did so in my flannel jammies, so that wasn't too bad. 

So, it's Cyber Monday and I can't go too crazy b/c my wallet needs to be CLOSED no matter what kinda sale there is.  BUT (yes, there's always a but), I did get myself something I've been drrrooooling over for some time.  This cutest iphone cover from Rifle Paper Co.  Rifle Paper Co. rarely has such a great sale (30% off) that I took the plunge.  How about you?  Anything you are purchasing today?  Do share~~

Happy Monday~~
