Happy holiday’s everybody. I love sharing great deals and cool stuff. I am like Oprah, except without the millions. I thought that I would share some of my favorite things with my favorite people… you all!!
I am up in cold and rainy Seattle visiting friends and family. I am having a great time. We just got back from Watson’s Greenhouse & Nursery in Puyallup, Wa. In addition to amazing Christmas decorations, gift, plants and a cafe, they have real live reindeer!
Me & Santa’s Reindeer.
For those of you who love to snuggle up with a good book, my friend Anjali Banerjee’s latest novel, Enchanting Lily is a great pick.
Into the quaint town of Fairport on Shelter Island comes Lily Byrne, a young widow who is not so much running from the old but rather edging toward something new and indefinable. Here in the peaceful Pacific Northwest, newly engaged in her vintage clothing boutique, she hides from the world. But Lily knows that solitude can’t sustain her forever. Somehow, somewhere, something’s got to give. It does, with the unexpected arrival of an exuberant little cat.
As Lily searches for the cat’s true home, she embarks on a journey just as unpredictable—one of healing and renewal that opens up a whole new world in this small island community she now calls home. Saved by the hidden graces of others, she even allows herself to fall in love again. But how much of this is serendipity? How much is destiny? As Lily starts looking at herself, and her life, in an enlightening new way, she can’t help but also wonder, how long can such good fortune last?

If anyone has unmanageable, fizzy hair like I did, and you live in So Cal.. then you simply must go see Susan at Honey Hair Studio in Newport Beach. I usually wore my hair in a scarf or under a hat, until Susan gave me a non-toxic smoothing treatment that lasts 3 months. My hair is now silky smooth and I wake up with gorgeous hair! Tell her I sent you.
