I spy with my little eye something couture and sparkly!

Last night, on the season five finale of The Voice, Celine Dion pulled a Selena Gomez and rocked out to a gorgeous ensemble from Atelier Versace’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection.

Tea Is Good For The Soul, So Have Some Kusmi

A little Kusmi mint tea 🙂

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
― C.S. Lewis

When I have a bad day, when I want to relax, when I wish to spend time with those I love or even get to know someone new – I enjoy a good cup of tea.

Kusmi Tea makes the perfect gift for someone special or for yourself because of its uniqueness, versatility of taste-hues, quality and beautiful packaging. [Read more…]

Yay! My birthday is in two days and I gave myself a festive manicure tonight. It actually reminds me of a cross between my Grad Night 2003 t-shirt from Disney World and Elsa from Disney’s “Frozen” … but that’s another story… 🙂 [Read more…]

Live in New York City? Learn to Cook with Asphalt Green Battery Park Culinary Center!

This post is image heavy and EVERYTHING shown was handmade by me and my 3 other classmates at Culinary Boot Camp!

I can bake, but I really can’t cook. Not at all.

You know rice burns, taco shells melt and ummm stuffed tomatoes are more like pure mush.

So when I got the opportunity to take a cooking boot camp class I was all about it.
