Holiday Events and Inspiration

I can honestly say that this has been the best holiday season ever – I have enjoyed so many wonderful sights, tastes and sounds this year that I feel like I have lived a visual feast and I am SO thankful. It seemed that Christmas started the week before Thanksgiving and didn’t stop until the great crescendo of cooking my family recipes for Christmas dinner for the first time since we moved into our home two years ago. In between there were many festive and heartfelt moments, including:

* “Let it Sparkle”, as Beverly Hills lit up the city with dazzling activities and offers throughout November and December.

* A fun and fabulous “Crafts and Cocktails” event at the luxe D.L. Rhein boutique, hosted by Bag Lady Promotions, where some of my favorite bloggers got together to make stylish jewelry and shop

* An AMAZING Thanksgiving dinner at the Montage Beverly Hills – we are also partying there for New Year’s Eve – join us!

* A very intriguing evening of Intimate Illusion with Ivan Amodei – a very sexy date night out with other blogger couples – it was so fun to meet the husbands of my dynamo friends, then dinner at the new Taberna Mexicana

* An gallery opening at Rankin of his interpretation of “The Spirit of Ecstacy”, hosted by Rolls Royce Motor Cars

* Travel to my hometown in Mississippi, specifically to host a wedding day brunch for the daughter of dear friends and to attend her wedding, but also to eat drink and be merry – Mississippians are VERY festive at Christmas time!

* The day after returning to Los Angeles, my bff Barrie and I attended a spectacular event at the new A’Maree’s boutique hosted by Shane Baum of Leisure Society to launch his new luxury eyewear designs. We were able to watch the Newport Boat Parade while we cocktailed and ogled all the fabulous design from the boutique!

* A fun Family Day at the Beverly Canon Garden hosted by OVO of Cirque du Soleil,. I am really excited to take the Critter to see the show, which gives insight to the life of insects, opening under the big tent at the Santa Monica pier on January 20th!

* Cooking the best Christmas dinner I’ve ever cooked, complete with all my best china and silver, none of which I managed to photograph – so much for documenting everything!

I hope y’all have enjoyed the season as much as I have, and I wish you the best in 2012! xoxoxo

    Stamps are the official piece of paper which are affixed on the packages and letters in order to mail the items. Basically, stamps are nothing but a kind of official receipt that shows that you paid for the delivery of the attached item.
