They say good things come to those who wait. Didn’t pick up some Hard Night Good Morning when I recommended it last year? Well now they have a new and improved version. Does that make it “Hard Night, Better Morning?” Because I can use all the Good Mornings I can get in 2011.

LIKE IN 2011: The Super Bowl in Dallas
It seems a little unfair that within a span of three months we’d have both the World Series and the Super Bowl in Dallas but after the last few years, let’s just call ourselves blessed for the boost in the economy. Thursday afternoon Tiffany & Co. was crowded with patrons and police. At about a 1:5 ratio. Why? The unveiling of the Super Bowl XLV Vince Lombardi trophy. Never would I have imagined a trophy would A) garner so much attention and B) need so much security. However I must admit the unveiling ceremony did not disappoint. The excitement in the air was palpable.

LIKED IN 2010: Styling the Cover
Styling the Grand Luxe Cover Shoot. As with any photo shoot there were “treats” to deal with throughout the day.

LIKED IN 2010: Last year I craved a lot of things but primarily I began my journey toward streamlining my life and my business to become more efficient and more effective while still managing to do things like: sleep, eat, see my family. Sifting, sorting, getting rid of, giving away…these are all things that most people don’t really enjoy doing but once it’s done the feeling is wonderful. Last year I sold or gave about enough to fill a five car garage. Seriously. How did I accumulate so much? I have no idea. The task was daunting and took hundreds of hours throughout the year and included a move into a new place and a new office. The organization of life has truly had a de-stressing effect on me though and I feel like as the process continues (it is a never-ending cleanse) I will continue to be able to harness more energy and accomplish more each day. With the extra time (haha) I was able to participate in something I am really excited to share with you.

LIKED IN 2010: Dirty Martinis
I am likely not alone in my fondness for martinis. The thing I don’t like about martinis, the stemmed glasses. Yes, they look fabulous. Unfortunately, when walking around a crowded room in high heels, carrying a clutch, trying to balance the hors d’oeuvres of the evening with a stemmed martini glass, they always seem to be a problem. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched someone spill a martini, from a stemmed glass. Sometimes just a sip, sometimes more, sometimes on the ground, sometimes on themselves, sometimes on someone else and most regrettably sometimes on me. Admittedly, I’ve asked for my martinis in highball glasses to avoid this issue and was resigned to that until I found this new collection of martini glasses and fell in love.
The stemmed martini glass.

LOVED IN 2010 [and for years before]: MICHELE Watches
So you’ve all seen me sporting a MICHELE watch- because it’s all I wear- and if you follow my blog you’ve read my write-ups about them over the years. What you probably don’t know is where my fondness [read: OBSESSION] for MICHELE started. It’s a [very unlike me] emotional connection to a “piece” in my wardrobe. Think: Ilene Beckerman’s “Love, Loss and What I Wore.” If you haven’t read this book, you need to. Especially if you’re a man. It very succinctly explains a woman’s relationship with her wardrobe.

LIKED IN 2010: Haute Hostess Aprons
Elizabeth Scokin’s genius Haute Hostess aprons have long been some of my favorites. With the great styles, patterns and fabrics you never need more than a basic Little Black Dress or this one, we call “The Little Black Dress in the kitchen.” Only downside: if you’re going to wear it, it is kind of implied you’ll be doing all the cooking and I am much more likely to share the workload.

New year, new love. It wouldn’t be a new year in Dallas if Tristan Simon didn’t open another restaurant. The flavor of the year for 2011 is a little Mexican spot named Alma. Of course, it is stationed amongst his empire on Knox-Henderson, a street that could aptly be renamed Knox-Tristan-Henderson.
