Kate Spade

While visiting a friend in Kansas City, we stopped into the new Kate Spade store and I realized that they've really upped their game since the boxed purses that made them famous way back when.

It's been a while since I've even looked at Kate Spade but the bright colors and whimsy of the store sucked me and and now I can't get enough!  About half of my Christmas list is full of Kate Spade items.  Here's a few of my favorite items on my Christmas list...


Also, if you haven't already seen this article in this month's Matchbook magazine featuring Kate and Andy Spade's home, it's a must see!!

Here's a few other items with sparkle you need this holiday season

So... I'm Kinda Back!

Hey there!  I know it's been a very, very, very long time.  So long that there aren't really any good excuses.  I've missed blogging but work has been so crazy I barely have time to get my laundry done!  With the holidays coming up though, there are way too many great things to blog about so I couldn't resist...

This past weekend, my friend hosted a "Practice Thanksgiving" for us to each perfect our dishes (also just an excuse to have a party).  Everything was delicious, especially the mini pies my friend Jennelle made with her new mini pie maker.  Who knew there was such a thing?  All you need is:

to get these...

What are you whipping up for Thanksgiving this year??
