~Article to Read
A must-read article to rid yourself of the many misconceptions about the Parisian culture. From debunking myths about the rampant infidelity crisis and which destinations are truly worth wandering into, read it, save it and trust it. I found myself nodding in absolute agreement per my own traveling experiences in the city.

~Recipe for Mini Lemon Meringue Cheesecake Bites~
I am ready to get all dressed up and dive into a two-week vacation, but first I would like to take a nap and get energized. Does anyone else feel this way? I am more than eager to engross myself with the holiday festivities – many soirees, local last-minute gift shopping and nibbling and toasting to my heart’s content, but it’s Friday and I’m exhausted. Never mind that, this time of year only happens upon us once and because of such a fact, we must partake, revel and celebrate. Are you with me?
With great excitement, and to be honest, in a state of still-can’t-quite-believe-it, Choosing The Simply Luxurious Life: A Modern Woman’s Guide, officially launched this week (in both print and ebook format). I want to extend my sincere gratitude to Jennifer L. Scott of Daily Connoisseur for not only spotlighting the book this week, but also offering a giveaway to one lucky winner. If you’re interested in entering, be sure to stop by and enter here.
But for now, it’s back to the holiday celebrations. Doesn’t the recipe above look absolutely mouth-watering? As someone who is infatuated with lemon meringue pie and was looking for a dessert recipe for an upcoming cocktail party, this particular combo bite caught my attention. Needless to say, I quickly put it on my menu and will let you know how it goes.
