today we continue my home tour with a view of my kitchen and laundry room. as you can imagine, i spend a fair amount of time in both rooms. the kitchen is a place where the family often gathers to help fix a meal or sit for breakfast. the kitchen is the heart of the home, so it makes perfect sense that it’s a place of comfort.

are we ready for Wednesday, ladies? we are halfway through this last week of January, and i am enjoying the cooler temps and sunny days here in Athens. who thinks Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow this February 2nd? spring is technically around the corner for us, as the equinox is March 19. but we all know that winter weather will stick around for a lot of us well after the official first day of spring. today, we’re talking top winter coatigans.

hello, winter! it’s a balmy 48 degrees in Athens today. New York woke up to 40 degrees, but Minneapolis takes the cake with a brisk 36. when the going gets tough, the tough reach for winter essentials. for me, that’s a cashmere turtleneck dress from Everlane. today, we’re going to talk about how to wear a sweater dress multiple ways.

it’s travel month over here on the blog. one of my favorite months. we kicked things off yesterday with some tips and tricks for airport travel. and today, i’m showcasing an outfit geared for traveling when it’s cooler outside. i’m all about the color pop today. and in that spirit, i’m featuring a pair of classic red shoes—something everyone should have in their closet.

is it winter where you are? cold and dreary? my son told me this weekend that Athens, GA, has gotten more rain than Seattle this winter: 24″. i haven’t checked as to whether that’s true, but i can tell you, i was more than glad to escape the rain and head to Florida for a week. if it’s winter where you are, and you’re looking for a mild escape, join me today as i show you what i wore in Miami.

there are so many questions about my skincare routine. makeup also ranks high on your list of want-to-knows. and so does boosting your immune system. so, i thought i’d roll up all three topics into one mega-post. i’m definitely not a beauty expert by any stretch of the imagination. but i’ve tried my best through the years to stay current with the latest and greatest beauty products. because skincare products do make a difference with how our skin looks. and there’s good news. even if you’ve neglected your skin for years, it’s never too late to put a beauty regimen in place. these are a few of the ingredients i look for when it comes to skincare products: vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, peptides, and retin A. it’s not an inclusive list, but it’s a start. i also love products that use natural ingredients too.

just because we’re stuck at home doesn’t mean we can’t throw a dinner party for two or more. today, we’re talking how to host a virtual dinner party. it might take a bit of planning on your part to send the invites and get everyone on board as far as date and time. but just like at-home dinner parties, it’s worth the time and effort to galvanize your friends and family. these days, it’s so easy to feel alone and isolated, so we need to make every effort to stay connected. and i’ve always loved opening my home and breaking bread. today, i get to try a new way to do just that. remember, guests will make or break the party, so four to six is a good number to start with. it’s small enough to keep the banter rolling but not large enough to have everyone shouting talking over one another.

are you ready to ease into spring with a few key pieces? yes, old man winter is soon to be replaced by all things spring. but dang, if he doesn’t want to linger. it’s been cold and dreary in Athens the past few days, which has me missing those blue skies and sunshine Florida is famous for. but when the going gets tough weather-wise, the tough pull on some special duds with a little bling for good measure and snake print shoes.
