Veranda is one of the only magazines, if not the only one, to feature homes decorated for Christmas each year. I love seeing all the beautiful holiday decor in elegant interiors especially this one by Alidad in London.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I read on twitter today rom Dr. Frank Lipman that “gratitude produces a profound shift in your immune and endocrine systems, lowering stress hormoones and boosting overall health.” I hope that makes up for all the turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie we will all indulge in today.

Memorial Day Meaning

While Memorial Day might mean summer sales, beach vacations, and barbecues to some people, it is actually a federal holiday meant to honor those who died in service to their country.

As many of you probably saw of the show Million Dollar Decorators, he’s extremely funny and down to earth. I really think they should create a show […]

Even though Dina Fierro is a beauty blogger in addition to recently being the Vice President of Social/Digital at HL Group, she is the only person I trust when it comes to technology advice.  She was the person who who turned me on to Frends headphones and anytime she links to an article on Twitter, […]
