It has been quite the week, Darlings. I arrived home from Europe only to do a photoshoot, pack and return to California! It has been a whirlwind of activity and I’m happy to be in Palm Springs to enjoy the Holidays.
I also am so grateful for all of the opportunities and experiences this life has given me. No matter how busy I get, I am always smiling.
This week’s musings I’ve included a little bit of everything. From Holiday party outfits to a delicious mulled wine recipe, I threw in a little something for everyone. Enjoy!
7 Fabulously Festive Holiday Party Outfits
I love a good Holiday party, my Darlings. Town & Country Magazine did a great job putting together 5 wonderful ensembles to give you inspiration for your own Holiday looks.
I personally love the sequined options! Who doesn’t love a pant that sparkles as you walk?
I also very much enjoy the Gathered Taffeta-Sleeve Dress. It’s chic, original and daring! All the things I love in a fashionable look.

Last week I gave you an eggnog recipe to try with the Grands and this week I’m giving you an adult treat. I found this delicious mulled wine recipe, and I can’t wait for you to try it!
What I love about mulled wine, is it warms you to your toes. It’s perfect to drink while curled up on the couch with my Ulitmate Concierge and great to serve at any Holiday party! It is sure to be a hit.

Guide to Tipping During The Holiday Season
Darlings, I think something many people disagree on is tipping! Especially during the Holiday Season, tipping is a way to show our gratitude for people working to make a living during the busiest time of year. But how do we know what to give?
As Town & Country says:
The holidays are a time for showing your appreciation—and in many cases, that means monetary gratitude. But how much is appropriate to give? And who in your life deserves a little acknowledgment?
Short answer? Common sense, specific circumstances, and holiday spirit should always be your guide. But of course, there’s a longer answer too.
This great article goes on to explain why and how we should tip. It was a very interesting read!
