Girlfriend Tip

Do you want to make your life 100% easier? Get yourself a robot vacuum.  I have an Roomba and a Robotic, one for downstairs and one for upstairs.  Both of mine are the middle of the road price (you can search for different models in the Amazon search box above).   They are amazing!!  I run them almost everyday.  They pick up everything and leave my rooms spotless.  Do yourself a favor, don’t even think twice, add a robot vacuum to your cleaning routine!

Historic Storm on the Way

Here in New York we are bracing for a “historic Blizzard” to hit our community.  YIKES!!  Not really sure exactly what that means but it doesn’t sound good.  I thought I would share an AMAZING recipe with you to help wait out the storm.  It would be great to try this while you are homebound.  I heard making the meringue is tricky, so these next few days are the perfect time to practice!  I have a friend who makes this Pavlova for all our pot luck luncheons and it is OUT OF THIS WORLD.  The recipe is just too good not to share with my readers.  I am hoping that once you make it, it will help you to forget the disaster that is happening outside your windows!!!!!

Palm Beach Lifestyle

I travel back and forth to Florida to visit my family many times throughout the year.  I especially love Palm Beach and its tropical glamour.  There is nothing like fabulous Worth Ave.  The Palm Beach style is in a league of its own.  One Kings Lane is currently doing a sale titled “Palm Beach Polish” for the next week.  Here is the link:

Why not add a little Palm Beach glamour to your home!

First Significant Snow Storm

Today marks our first significant snow storm here in the New York area.  Though I would much rather be writing about the newest sandals or sunglasses, this post is a MUST.  Here are some wonderful boots to help you navigate the tundra outside your front door.  I was shocked to hear that the LLBean “Bean” boot, showcased, below was the hottest seller for the Holiday season and had a looooonnnngg back order date (like a May delivery!!).  That certainly brought me back to my high school/college days.  I guess it is true what once was old is new again.  Enjoy the snow!!!
