NEW TODAY! Three Fab Offers From T.J Maxx + Marshalls This Holiday Season!

Redeem this Holiday Season for Meaningful Moments!

As many of you know, I love my friends over at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls! They continually provide us with incredibly stylish options for all the luxurious items we love to buy without blowing the monthly budget! That said, I wanted to let you know about some very cool programs they have going on right now..

T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods are taking to Twitter to offer up a different kind of coupon this holiday – redeemable for special holiday memories with loved ones. From sending people home for the holidays, to helping those in need of holiday cheer deck the halls of their home, the Twitter campaign will bring friends and family together.

Each Monday for the next three weeks, @TJMaxx, @Marshalls and @HomeGoods will release a new offer, and followers can share how redeeming it will help them or a loved one bring back the holidays, using #BringBackHolidays and #Contest to be entered to win. The social campaign includes:

· Get Me Home! (November 16 – 20): Redeemable for 20 people that need help getting home so they can spend time with their loved ones. Winners receive a $2,000 travel gift card to go toward holiday travel arrangements.
· Holiday Saver (November 23 – 27): Redeemable for three families in need of holiday cheer. T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods will transform the winners’ homes into a festive atmosphere, complete with twinkling lights and perfectly wrapped gifts.
· Gifts to Give Back (November 30 – December 4): Redeemable for giving back to five selfless and inspirational people who are always giving of themselves. Five winners are selected to receive a special holiday delivery filled with unique gifts that focus on the person opening the present, not what’s inside the gift box.

In addition, from November 6-8th all 2,500 T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods locations helped raised money for over 130 local food banks across the country. For those three days, customers were encouraged to donate at the register, with 100 percent of the dollars raised going back into the local communities.
Also inspired by the retailers’ core belief that spending time with loved ones is what matters most, the stores remain closed on Thanksgiving to ensure associates can spend the holiday with their families.

For more information, visit the retailers on Twitter at @TJMaxx, @Marshalls and @HomeGoods, and to view the commercial, visit the YouTube Page.

Thanks and have a fabulous day!

Why Four Seasons Miami Is THE Saturday Haute Spot This Summer!

New Yorkers have The Hamptons. Bostonians have Martha’s Vineyard. And starting this weekend Miami has SPF Saturdays! I’ll be there and this is why you’ll want to, too..

This Saturday, July 18, marks the launch of SPF Saturdays: Seafood + Pool + Four Seasons

SPF Saturdays!

SPF Saturdays!

at Bahía, the Hotel’s poolside bar and grill. Attendees are invited to spend an afternoon on the 7th floor tropical pool deck for fresh coastal cuisine, with the launch of The RAWBar and a southern-style Seafood Boil – perfect for celebrating summer in this oasis in the city!
The weekly event will take place every Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.through Labor Day weekend. During the eight-week series, The RAWBar opens to the public with á la carte offerings of Freshly Shucked East Coast Oysters and Florida Clams, peel-and-eat Key West Pink Shrimp, Corvina Crudo, Lobster and Shrimp Ceviche and an East Coast Mussel Salad.
Prices are pretty reasonable considering the upscale venue and will range from $2.50 per clam to $18 for a half-pound-serving of shrimp. The featured wine-by-the-glass, a crisp Muscadet Sèvre pairs perfectly with the light (and delish!) shellfish menu.
At 1:30 p.m. the southern style Seafood Boil will start with a light salad, followed by family-style servings of Lobster, Pink Shrimp, Florida Clams, Mussels and Crawfish simmered in Cajun-style spices, and accompanied by Sweet Corn-On-The-Cob, Golden Potatoes and Housemade Smoked Sausage.
Tickets for The Seafood Boil can be purchased on http://www.SPFSaturdays-FourSeasonsMiami.eventbrite.com for $65 per person, plus tax/tip and include access to the two fabulous resort style pools. The two-acre terrace at Four Seasons have a resort-style pool, Bahia, a poolside bar and grill offering all kinds of yummy delights and my personal favorite..The private cabanas you can rent for the day starting at $150. The separate Palm Grove Pool is only a foot deep and is shaded by 28 towering Royal Palms with a view of the city and the bay unlike any other hotel pool on Brickell Avenue. If you haven’t been to this chic and luxury hotel, now is the time to check it out. You’ll become an overnight devotee, just like me!

How To Freshen Up Your Home For Spring And Not Be A Hot Mess

Spring Home

I don’t know about you, but I am over the warm and cozy look I’ve been living with since October. I’m yearning for some springtime vibes and I bet you are, too! Not to fret, there are a few fabulous-and surprisingly affordable moves you can make in your home that can easily transition it to spring. The key is to do one simple thing in every room.

The Kitchen: Paint

The kitchen is the room in the house that needs to be painted the most often. It gets a lot of use and traffic and a fresh coat of paint works wonders in there! Why not go for something cool and current? Last week, I painted the upper half of one of my kitchen walls with Sherwin-Williams Chalkboard Paint. I’m adding a chair rail and lots of empty white frames for a chic add-on. This way, I can write messages inside the frames and also adding a little color to a black wall. The chalkboard paint looks cool, while the white frames look fresh.

Cost: Under $100
Skill Level: You can totally do this

Foyer: Lighting

Whether you live in an apartment or a grand home, we all have something that qualifies as an entryway. Usually, there is some sort of overhead light and it’s usually awful. If you rent, it’s almost always some $20 horror. For under $100, you can change it to something fabulous and chic and won’t make anyone feel like they’re at the doctor’s office upon entering your abode. If you rent, just put the old one away in a closet and switch it back before you move. Stay away from super bright lights and check the clearance on your door. For example, in my home I had to get a flush mount or the door would hit it. Lamps Plus has a ton of options that are affordable and come in every possible design style. Added bonus, they have a ton of home decor, too! Who new?

Cost: Varies, but under $100 is very doable
Skill Level: Get someone to do this for you unless you’re an electrician

Living Room: Modular Carpeting

Living Rooms are where you almost always need to drop the most cash, that’s a fact. Your biggest pieces are there… sofas, tables, electronics, etc. Most of us don’t change sofas yearly, but how can you get a fresh look without cashing out your 401K? Easy, carpeting. Area rugs are one of my favorite ways to do quick change ups, but Flor carpet tiles have some fashion forward designs that are well priced and a cinch to use. The real kicker is the replaceability factor. They come in “tiles” that you piece together so when you drop a glass of Brunello, it’s not disastrous. You just replace that one tile. For me, with two kids under the age of six, it’s the answer to my Type A prayers! Also great for anyone with pets or just a high traffic household. Check out my faves, Mod Cow and Hey Jack for big punches of style.

Cost: Varies
Skill Level: Everyone, including a 12-year-old

Bedroom & Bathroom: Linens

In the winter, we tend to bust out the down comforter or over-stuffed duvet. They keep us toasty, but become unnecessary in spring and summer and just look a little out of place. I like to switch them out with lighter coverlets and cotton blankets for a fresh look. This also gives you the opportunity to change up the style a bit. Tired of that Chevron look yet? I hear you! Why not try a bright floral or fun color block look? New towels and shower curtains are also super easy ways to update a bathroom in a minute. Besides, old towels are kind of gross and nobody wants to use your eye makeup or bleach stained linens when they use your bathroom. Keep your eyes peeled for a good white sale and always check online at places like HSN, Horchow and One Kings Lane for high end items at discounted prices.
Cost: $200 and up
No skills necessary

Anywhere: Statement Mirror

I love mirrors for several reasons. First, they are a stylish answer for awkward wall space. Plus, they come in a gazillion design styles and are super affordable. Additionally, when hung adjacent to a window, they reflect the light and scenery of the view. Your room will feel instantly bigger and brighter. I do this in almost every NYC apartment I decorate. You can find mirrors everywhere from Home Goods to flea markets and everywhere in between. If you want to isolate a specific design, go online and you are sure to find everything from chic chinoiserie to grand Venetian mirrors at large sites like Wayfair.com. They enable you to carve out your style, budget and color very easily and there’s often free shipping. Make sure to check weights of mirrors. A lot of walls can’t hold up some mega-weighty mirrors and then it starts getting complicated. Go for the lighter options whenever possible.
