I know I’m still a kid at heart because the week before Christmas continues to absolutely drag by, even though all I want is for it to be Christmas morning! Sadly, a few days remain until the Christmas-movie binging, gift giving and face stuffing really begins. Fortunately, I’ve got a few things to distract me, like all of these wonderful places to visit and goodies to wear, live with and indulge in:
Wear: Statement necklace by Kate Spade New York
I’ve made a promise to myself that 2014 will be the year of the accessories, and I don’t think I could possibly get off to a better start than with this gorgeous navy, gold and crystal necklace from the fabulous Kate Spade. Added bonus: It would make a killer NYE bauble!
Live With: “Rue Moderne” art print from Oliver Gal
Harrison and I have been talking about adding some new art to the apartment walls, and this stunning print has really caught my eye. I go gaga over gold, and the map-like image would be perfectly vintage-chic.
Visit: Haven Rooftop restaurant at the Sanctuary Hotel; 132 W. 47th St., New York City
I’ve been dying to make a trip to New York, and if a rooftop-restaurant-turned-ski-lodge isn’t a good enough excuse to go, I don’t know what is. Though I often tried to avoid Times Square like the plague when I lived there, this view would be almost unbeatable. And could you really turn down the chance to dine under a faux-fur blanket while enjoying an hourly “snow show?” Didn’t think so.
Drink: Sparkling Apple Cider Sangria via The Kitchn
We’re having friends over tomorrow night for a pre-Christmas dinner, and even though I think we have the drink sitch covered, this would be such a cute, festive and delicious cocktail to serve up. So cute I might even have to sneak to the grocery store later for the ingredients …
What have you been itching to drink, wear, visit and live with this week?
