#ShareAMeal This Holiday Season

Brunch Share A Meal

Part of what I love most about the holiday season is the abundance of food. Mom’s famous cornbread…Aunt Tina’s yummy mac and cheese.

Bergdorf Goodman Beauty Files: How To Choose Perfume For Someone Else

Oud Ispahan

With the holiday season upon us, I can’t help but get my into a gift-giving state of mind and, inevitably, fragrance is part of the equation. But pairing the right scent to the right individual can prove challenging…and even downright disastrous.  Luckily I’ve got friends in fragrant places. I recently sat down with Roberto Adolfo Vargas, Northeast Regional Educator for Maison Francis Kurkdjian, [...]

#TTBToursLA: Le Trench Coat

Le Trench and ThisThatBeauty

I mean, I love being able to take that sort of time [...]
