If We Were Having Coffee – Vol II
December!!! This is my favorite month of the year outside of July, my birthday month. What a special time when everyone appears to be more kind and loving towards one another. So besides holiday good feels, here are a few things I would tell you if we were having coffee…
1 – My Christmas tree is not up, still in the box and I am not pressed at all. Holiday decorating is on the agenda for the weekend.
2 – Does your family’s holiday traditions include an Advent calendar? Here’s one from Martha Stewart, great for getting those creative juices flowing as you countdown to Christmas.
3 – I wait all year long to watch my favorite holiday movie – An Affair To Remember. I will watch it several times until January and cry every time. Ahhh true love.
4 – These boots might be made for walking, but my wallet is telling me to walk away from this price tag. They sure are cute though!
5 – Myleik Teele is a popular Atlanta Tastemaker whose cooking snaps have me thinking I am Julie Child or somebody, but she can miss me with these nasty things, yuck, ewww. Not on my palette.
Yes I kinda have holiday on the brain but that’s a good thing. I mentioned the advent calendar, does your family have any holiday traditions?
Have a merry and bright weekend!

Merry Christmas To All!
$25 Travel Gifts Under $25
How was your weekend pretties? The weather in The A this weekend was absolutely fabulous, not at all December like, but it was great to leave the jackets and coats at home. I admit I am worn out, I cannot hang y’all. The weekend was jammed packed with luncheons (love my AKA), galas (did I say I love my AKA), dinner dates (another mojito please), workouts (after all this good food and libations, much needed)! The Christmas holiday is just 11 days away, yep 11. I have one more gift to buy and I am done. If you still have some gifts to buy, why not gift a travel basket for the budding traveler or the jet-setter. These are must haves to make travel easy peasy and of course, all under $25.

Friday Faves – 40 – Chinese New Year Edition
Oh gosh, what a week we’ve had in The A. But y’all know regardless of what happens, Atlantans will Rise Up! The countless stories of random acts of kindness and generosity demonstrated across this city, make me proud to be an Atlantan. Yeah it was a mess, but folks really helped each other get through a bad situation.
On to today’s Friday Faves which is all about the Chinese New Year – The Year of the Horse. If you’re born in 1954,1966,1978,1990,2002 or 2014, then this is your year. You are said to be well liked, happy, and a hard worker. I’ve curated some special goodies created just for the Chinese New Year celebration. That Longchamp bag is the truth. Longchamp Le Pliage is the grandaddy of travel bags. And I’ll take a little blue box any day. The song today isn’t a song at all, but horse trotting! I’ve always wanted to go horseback riding – it’s on my list!
Is this your year, if so, does this describe you?
