The holiday season is a time for reflection. We reflect upon the year that passed, remembering the good, as well as the bad, and most likely wondering what the coming year will bring. It’s a mix, of memories isn’t it? Mine is too. With everything life throws at you, it builds character, challenges you, and more often than not, changes you.
New York City. It’s bright lights and fancy flair will leave you starry eyed, yet spinning at the same time. “If you can make it here, then you can make it anywhere.” Isn’t that the way the song goes? There’s definitely truth to that. The holiday season in NYC is no different. I’ll admit that I get swept up in it. I love the parties, and the hustle and bustle of this city makes my heart skip a beat. I find it hard to stand still, and so I don’t. I’m constantly on the move, and I love living life that way.

We are closing out Thanksgiving weekend, and our holiday spent in NYC was oh-so-fabulous. It really was. It felt, quiet, cozy, restful, yet adventurous at the same time. To escape the touristy Thanksgiving crowds, we headed downtown, to check out the Louis Vuitton VVV Exhibit, which was nothing short of amazing. To our surprise, it was the best time to go. It wasn’t crowded. It was just perfect.
It’s the day after Black Friday, and I hope you saved your pretty pennies! For what, you ask? Small Business Saturday! Sure, you can walk into a fancy department store, overwhelmed by racks of products. Maybe, just maybe someone will help you, or smile at you, or ignore you which is often the case. Your money will go to brand that sees your purchase as a number or percentage, on a black and white spreadsheet. Yes, your purchase still matters to that brand, but when you shop small businesses, you support their dream.
They’ll remember your face, your conversation, and you’ll remember that purchase. Small business owners, wear many hats, and they give it all they’ve got. They have to, to be successful. They add flavor and style to their brands. I love purchasing something that was handcrafted, and made with love, while having a conversation with that same person about their own dream, and how they got their start. It’s inspiring to say the least. As a small business owner myself, I’ve designed jewelry for many years, and I know what it means to really work for it. It isn’t easy. But, rewarding? Definately! That being said, here are a few of my favorites to support on Small Business Saturday, along with my own.
Post Thanksgiving treats happen when you’re in that turkey coma, or still nibbling on leftovers, right? So what comes next?

Here are some of my favorite holiday items, that I’ve found on Black Friday super sale for you today. Take advantage of these spicy deals, and style your little heart out. I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving, loves!
Cue the Macy’s Thanksgiving day floats, and strike up the band. The holiday season is just around the corner, and if you plan on visiting New York City, you may be searching for some fab places and spaces to make your holiday season a bit more festive. While I love escaping the busy city, I’ll admit that I’ve had a blast during our rare holidays spent in NYC. The city comes alive in the fall, and the leaves in Central Park turn every color of the rainbow. The chill in the air is just right, and as much as I’d rather be on a beach, it really is beautiful here. As the holidays approach, the tree is lit in Rockefeller Center, and the city turns into one, glimmering disco ball, as twinkling holiday lights line the street. It really is a site to see. So, if you plan on sipping your pumpkin spiced lattes, here are my holiday sightseeing recommendations for you (make sure to wear your walking boots and your coziest coat). I’ve included traditional touristy spots, as well as some of my favorite non-touristy favorites for you to peruse.
If you could choose the coordinates of your dream location, what would they be? Think of your absolute favorite place on earth. My dream location just so happens to be Central Park, right across from Tavern on the Green.
Halloween. You like it or you don’t. Generally I’m not a fan, however for a good cause, and the right friends, I’ll slip into a costume for a night of spook-tacular chaos. Just watching people in their crazy costumes is worth the laugh.
