French Apéritif Time

French Apéritif Time

The weather is starting to change here in Santa Fe.  The air is crisp and the smell of burning wood fills the morning air.  Makes us start thinking about staying home, being cozy around the fireplace and entertaining during the upcoming holidays.  We are going to fill our home with our favorite stripes this year from Bon Marché.  The colors are rich and deep and create a sense of warmth and sophistication to our holiday decorations.  One thing that we use all the time is our fun cocktail napkins.  They are the perfect size to serve with appertif (the French...

A Taste Test Worth Talking About (Banyuls–Sur-Mer)

A Taste Test Worth Talking About (Banyuls–Sur-Mer)

Now I know this comes as no surprise, my love for things of quality that is, but I couldn’t resist tasting my way through the quaint village of Banyuls–sur–Mer. Departing from its neighboring village of Collioure, Banyuls is known for their vineyards along the mountains that touch into the sea! So every grape is kissed by the salty air and sea breezes.

The Last Minute Shopper

The Last Minute Shopper

It seems to become a familiar habit for special occasions and this time of year  - the last minute gift scramble. Most of us go about these shopping excursions quietly convincing ourselves it’s just another weeknight trip of browsing the aisles. It wouldn’t be shy from the truth that the person behind you in line is doing the same thing and knows the real reason the both of you are out this strange hour grabbing for one of the last on the shelf. You may convince yourself your secret is well kept, but next time you’ll notice how many other...
