Happy 2015 everyone! Hope you had a splendid holiday and feel ready to kickstart this brand new year head & heart on. This may be my first post of ’15 but I’m going to take you back to the end of last year to when I had a very special encounter while in glitzy Monaco that ended my 2014 with a bang. Brace yourself because this is going to be an unusually long post but I promise every bit is worth it. Continue reading →
It’s our favorite time of the year and whether you’ve been naughty or nice you’re going to get a treat from me. A treat that’s sweet on lips, kind on the hips and so cute even your kids are going to flip! Continue reading →

Since this past Monday was St. Patrick’s day, I decided to have my own little commemoration despite the fact that I have no Irish in me whatsoever. But hey, nothing wrong with getting into the spirit of things right? I did not wear any shamrock nor was I downing any bubbly Irish brew – but I did ‘Go Green’. Unlike a few years ago when I was pub-hopping in my ‘Kiss me I’m Irish’ tee just for some kicks, this year was a little – well a lot- different. It was still very much green only it took place in my kitchen with me in an apron. Continue reading →
