Happiest Holidays

Happy Holidays! Ted and I took this photo over the Thanksgiving holiday while we were at the Cape.

This is the second year I have created my cards with Minted. I keep all my contacts stored in my profile's address assistant and try to remember to update it throughout the year so I'm not scrambling around the holidays.  (I just added the few I needed to hand address this year.)

There is still time to make a New Year's card!

Five Favs: Black Basics

Five tried and true favorites from my closet:

Until the day I have a Chanel bag... this fits all of the essentials for a night out.

My travel scarf has turned into my everyday scarf. My office is freezing so I've been wearing it as a wrap. I wish I could have one in every color!

I was skeptical of the high rise but these have been my favorite jeans this fall. The are just ripped enough, not over the top. (I will admit that I have had to unbutton them after a big meal more than once... not used to the high waist)
Madewell is offering 30% off $200 or 20% off $100 with code GOFORIT through 12/15

I am beyond happy with my new work tote. I've been carrying a Longchamp for years and needed a change. I don't have to worry when it's raining or snowing that it will get ruined. It's big enough for my laptop and agenda but not too large for after work hours when running errands. I've been using it on the weekends too. Love it!

No question my favorite purchase from last year. I wear these with jeans as well as dresses and tights. So versatile and have held up amazingly.

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

It's almost show time. Will you be tuning in tonight? I know for once that Ted won't turn the channel to SportCenter.

I want angel hair. Last year I curled/wanded during commercial breaks.

I urge you to watch this Vogue video montage of workouts model Lily Aldridge does to prepare for the show. I would love to tag along with her for a week. (Maybe this inspired my scheduled double gym session today of barre and yoga?)

While we are on the topic of Victoria's Secret, have you seen their stores at the airport? They carry a different line of travel accessories than their other stores. I have built a collection of the signature stripe bags during work trips out of JFK.

HGTV Dream Home 2015: Edgartown

HGTV's Dream Home 2015 in Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard has just been revealed. I'm reluctant to even post about it because I don't want to lessen my chances of winning (there were only 72 million entries last year). This house was built for me. My favorite place, architect, the ginger jars... ahhhh. I haven't been able to stop looking at it.

The house is located on Crocker Drive in Katama. I'll definitely be doing a drive by next time I'm on the island.

There is even a doghouse for my future pooch!

Scout Sale

Scout 4 Boys Bag in Breaking Plaid and Remember the Tartans $52.00 $33.80

Scout has a great Cyber Monday sale already live - 35% off plus free shipping with code MONDAYFUNDAY. I have yet to decorate for Christmas and I'm already thinking about packing it all up. I got a few of these huge zip top bags for storage. I couldn't decide between the plaid patterns so did a combination.

If you aren't familiar with Scout, I recommend checking out "the classics" first. These totes are lightweight and durable, making them great for travel. So many cute patterns to choose from. Bonus - you can have them monogrammed.

Happy Shopping!
