Giving Thanks 2020

11 . 25 . 20

This has been a trying year to say the least but it’s given many of us time to pause and realize what we have to be grateful for now. This year and every year, I am thankful for all my loyal blog readers and Instagram followers. I am also grateful for all the lovely people […]

This second holiday gift guide was supposed to be posted last Friday but I just didn’t have time to work on it before my weekend trip to the Mayflower Inn and Spa. I’m happy that so many of you enjoyed the first one and I hope your gift recipients will be happy too. The embroidered […]

Quarantine felt like the slowest time ever but now it feels like summer is flying by. The Fourth of July will be here in a week and a half and if you need anything patriotic for your family, I’ve got you covered. You can never go wrong with a Ralph Lauren Cotton Flag Sweater. Striped […]

Quarantine Birthday

04 . 18 . 20

It’s definitely not the ideal to have your birthday fall during quarantine but I have to say that I had a very busy and fun day for someone home alone. It was made special by lovely friends who sent and dropped off wonderful surprises. Preston from @keepitchic drove into the city and brought me pretty daffodils and […]

Happy New Year!

12 . 31 . 19

I usually create my New Year’s Eve posts with new images each year but I’ve been very busy this so this one is a culmination of photos from the last few years. Seems fitting to look back as we end one decade and begin a new one. Happy New Year! Ring out wild bells to […]

Merry Christmas 2019

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas! XOXO, HC

This holiday season is mostly in full swing in New York but the late Thanksgiving has pushed some things back. The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree was just lit yesterday and the Park Avenue Tree Lighting is scheduled for Sunday night. The Bergdorf Goodman “Good Times” holiday windows have been for a week. I don’t think […]

I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving and are enjoyed a nice long holiday weekend. I’ve been trying to relax but there was so much to do before the snow arrived. If you’re house bound due to storms or looking for Cyber Monday deals, we’ve got our final holiday favorite things gift guide to […]

I hope you are enjoying a nice long holiday weekend to celebrate the Fourth of July. I couldn’t think of a better place to post today than Sag Harbor. It’s such a quaint harbor town full of American flags and patriotic price. If you’re looking to partake in the all American past time of shopping […]

If you’ve ever taken a walk on the Upper East Side or West Village during October, you’ll see houses with over the top decorations for Halloween. Some are so scary that I avoid during certain streets during this time of year. I personally prefer chicer home decor and tabletop pieces that can transition from Halloween […]
