paris & london recommendations?





I am headed to Paris and London in late June and I’d love to hear your recommendations! While I’ve been lucky to have spent substantial time in both cities I want to hear your favorites, can’t miss places/restaurants/etc. I know I have a ways to go but this trip is getting me through the next few months knowing it’s around the corner. I can’t wait to hop over the Atlantic and would love to hear from you about where to spend some time.

I spent the last week in Colorado at my family’s house out here for our first Christmas in the Rockies. I was able to spend most of the days in either ski gear or leggings (Thanks to Capitol Hill Style, I am obsessed with these- seriously the best ever), enjoy great wine and movies and overall downtime with my whole family which is what this season is really about, isn’t it?

I’m heading back to New York tonight for my first New Year Eve’s in the city and am looking forward to kicking off 2014 with a positive start. I’ll be sharing my resolutions on Wednesday. And if you ever get the chance to visit Colorado, Beaver Creek is a can’t-miss type of place. Happy Monday, all!

Items worn: J.Crew shirt & socks (these and these- on sale!), UGGs, Zella leggings, American Apparel Winter Leggings, Rag & Bone jeans

Over Thanksgiving I was cleaning out my childhood room and found so many laughs as I re-discovered a discman, a giant speaker set…and a Walkman even. How times have changed! My life truly has become so wireless it’s hard to imagine back to Double AA batteries, etc.

Jabra asked me to test out their Soulmate speaker and it was the perfect addition to my holiday routine. I took it along to a holiday party in my purse, played Christmas tunes while enjoying my decorated tree, had it keep me company while packing, and then packed it in my suitcase to come to Colorado where my family has been loving the seasonal songs that fill the house thanks to the amazing sound quality (not to mention fun and festive color!) It’s portable to take anywhere and connects wirelessly through Bluetooth meaning we could play Pandora from my mom’s computer, a custom playlist from an iPad or my seasonal Spotify playlists from my iPhone. The convenience and quality made this wireless speaker the perfect addition to my holiday season and I can’t wait to see where else I’ll be toting it.
