Good Gift Giving/Receiving

I love gifts. I love shopping for and giving. I love sitting and receiving.  It's a timeless act of appreciation. No matter how big or small or in what form they are given, a sincere thank you plus, perhaps, an additional show of gratitude is warranted when on the receiving end. I recently received this gift photographed here Given with abundance and matching style to suit. Simply gorgeous and made from 100% recycled paper. Eco-luxury defined and I felt like I received a gift within a gift. Double gratitude.

P.S. I don't believe in using wrapping paper myself. So sadly my convictions leave my loved ones receiving  a book in a bag from me on most occasions. Still a gift, though.

Sneaky Snack Share: Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

With food and most things in general, I keep it classic. Midnight called for cookies. Chocolate Chip to satiate the snacking sort in us all. Homemade and warm. So good.

Pretty in Pink by CK

Upon appearance, I thought this dress to be an instant icon and it seems the world is in agreement. Pretty in Pink, it is.  This Oscar worthy dress has a story and here it is ever so succinctly put by Vogue:

Scenes From Recent Styling.

Styling events has been a trick of my life from way back. From being a military brat to the sorority life then entertaining corporate guests and clients to the international social scene, I enjoy a good soirèe. Hosting events is like second nature. Creating a vision and then getting the details right is planning gone perfect for me. 

Here is a wee snippet of a recent event. Random images from concept to creation.  Enjoy.

Triangle Chips Plus Triple Dips

Our after school go to is pictured here. Homemade with and pretty healthy. You really can't go wrong with chips and dips. People simply can't say no. Our top 3 dips are Old El Paso salsa, organic store bought hummus (kids hate mine) and homemade guacamole (kids love mine).

How we do the chip:
Preheat oven to 180 Celsius 
Cut medium flour tortillas into 4-8 triangle pieces. 
Scatter flat on cookie sheet 
Bake until golden brown about 10 min. 
Salt lightly or not
Serve with dips.
