    Love your outfit and as always – seeing Oscar! If you want to cut down on the amount of sugar in your oat bar recipe – consider using a raspberry jam that just contains fruit juice – no added sugar. The bars come out delicious too.

    You are the epitome of class. Just sayin’!

    Hi Beth,
    I’ve always loved your Fridays with Oscar. he is gorgeous and looks like a real sweetheart. We lost our 10 year old german shepherd suddenly 2 weeks ago, and we miss her a lot. It warms my heart to see Oscar posing so beautifully. Happy Holidays!

  4. Julianne Leistner says:

    Love all of your posts, especially Fridays with Oscar! (and sometimes Ollie) A general suggestion: More closeups of your accessories, particularly jewelry, would be fantastic! Thanks, Beth!

    I think you meant flour in the above recipe, not flower!

    Oh my—three of my favorite things: Bailey’s, Tito’s and Expresso. Probably did NOT need to know about this inviting combination! 🙂

  7. Karen says:

    Loved today’s post….on a cruise and finished off the evening with an Espresso martini….
    Going to try the oatmeal bars…..
    And shopping for glen plaid next week!

    Thank you, Beth!

  9. Love your blog and we do dress similarly….it seems. Love Talbits clothes, though I do mix things up a bit with unusual tops and accessories from anthropologie from time to time. I wish you strength and Peace during these first holidays without Mr Style. Remember, he is always with you…..

    Beth, I made your vodka, vanilla almond milk with honey and pumpkin seasoning. We loved them. I made up a large pitcher in advance and then shook it in my cocktail shaker before serving. I will definitely be making your espresso martini. It’s nice to have a signature cocktail to serve when you entertain. So festive. Re the white shirt – whenever I wear a crisp white Talbots shirt my neighbor always asks – are you going out?? No – just like to look good. I think it is so very important as we get to a certain age that we up our game in life – clothing, hair, makeup, food, etc. Not to mention we need to look forward – not backwards. I am already planning items to add to my wardrobe for spring 2020, and a vacation with a trip to a spa. Keep up the good and inspiring work. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    Hello Beth…I always look forward to your Fridays with that handsome Oscar! I hope your are navigating the holidays…I love your positive spirit and grace moving forward. I plan on sharing your posts regarding handling grief and stress during the holidays with a friend of mine who lost her beloved husband of over 55 years.
    That cocktail looks fabulous! One if my favorite espresso martinis is: Equal parts espresso, Kahlua, and vanilla vodka. We enjoyed it many years ago at Spago’s in Las Vegas. It has a strong espresso kick…not too sweet…shake very well as it gets wonderfully frothy and chilled. It is tradition to make this at a monthly movie and pizza night at my house with girlfriends to get the party started! Happy Christmas to you all! 🎄☃️

    Hi Beth, Love your outfit but in the post you mention that your shoes are smoking slippers from Ann Tayler but they look like Tory Burch Minnie flats. Am I missing something? BT the way, you are gorgeous as ever and Ollie is a handsome boy! Have a wonderful weekend!

    Oscar is so handsome.
    But your blog is difficult to read on an IPad.
