Cocktails Anyone?

One of my favorite things to do is host a cocktail party.  It’s one of the things I really miss from living in NYC.  New Yorkers are GREAT at cocktails.  A big difference between living outside of NYC and in NYC is how well people cocktail. In NYC, we would be at a cocktail party […]

The lists are the key to preventing over packing for fashion week. If you start early enough, you’ll have plenty of time to edit. ~The Lesbian Socialite Over the years, I have done a fair amount of packing.  My understanding of the importance of packing was the summer I was 5 and I went to […]
