Thanksgiving decorating

Yes the Turkey is the star of Thanksgiving, but a nice decorated table is a close second.  A cheap way to decorate your table is to buy a few candle holders of different sizes and put nuts and chestnuts in around a simple white candle.  Then get some leaves and greens and place then on […]

The end of summer blues

The end of summer, it’s always depressing especially living in the Northeast because it’s alway so short.  But there are ways to get through it.  Here a small list to get you through: Update your wardrobe!  Buy yourself a cute new jacket for fall, perhaps a great new pair of boots, even a simple new […]

My love/hate relationship with my air conditioner

I love summer…love, love, love summer.  The only thing I hate about summer is the time I have to put my air conditioner in. I grew up in a modest home, but one of the luxuries we did have was central air conditioning.  If you have central air in your home, you know how lucky […]

Countdown to summer

After a trip to visit the family in Myrtle Beach this month, my boyfriend’s mom had these great little towel clips.  They’re cute, fun and clip your towel in place on your beach chair.  No more towels flying everywhere when you get up.  Boca Clips can be found at Bed Bath and Beyond ($6.00 for a pack of 2).  Great find!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!  I decided to cook a traditional Easter dinner for Joe and I and googled all week for a traditional Easter menu.  I finally decided to do ham, string beans and scalloped potatoes.  I have to say, it was a really simple and easy menu to cook.  I bought a 10 lb ham […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

“Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter. Lullabies, dreams and love ever after.  Poems and songs with pipes and drums.  A thousand welcomes when anyone comes… That’s the Irish for you!”

Happy Valentine’s Day!

There’s a great quote “love isn’t something you find, it’s something that finds you”.  I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s Day.   Remember, whether you’re in a relationship or not loving yourself and being happy with yourself is always most important.  Only when you do will love find it’s way.

Happy New Year!

Bringing the beach indoors

I love summer.  Living in NYC though my beach time is few during the season, so I like to bring a little of the beach to NYC.  Besides placing starfish on my windowsills and a few on my dresser, I like to take a hurricane vase, fill the bottom with sand, place a candle in […]

Polish for Summer 2012

Summer 2012!!  Time for the mani’s (and especially pedi’s) to shine.  So what’s new for summer 2012?   Neon:  Yep, the 80’s are back and so are neon colors.  We’ve been seeing neon clothes creeping back here and there and it’s made it’s way into nail polish colors.  Bright yellow, greens and oranges, even blues.
