Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!

The next decade of the 21st Century is here.

What fabulous, history making plans do you have?

I'm sure there's lots of good things ahead to celebrate & God willing -
I'll be right here to cover all of your splendor.

Here's looking at you!

Let's have a great 2010!

Celebrating Our Engagement!

Special Friend proposed to me on December 23rd and I was more than thrilled to accept!

The Black Socialite Facebook Community were among the first to hear this great news and many of you posted really nice notes/comments. We thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness and consideration.

In case you're wondering, there is no date for the wedding yet. But trust me - as soon as we settle on the plans, I'll share some of the details with you.

In the meanwhile good people, you have an assignment. Special Friend needs a new moniker.

If you have some ideas, shoot me an email.

Anyhoo, enjoy yourselves tonight & we'll chat in The New Year!

Cheers!

Four Fun "Jewels" for Last Minute Shoppers

If you’re like me, you may have waited to absolute last moment to pick up a few gifts. For those who are still a bit indecisive, I pulled together a four fun “jewels” that will last a lifetime!

Do you know someone who LOVES vampire literature? Leslie Esdaile-Banks (who also writes under the name of L.A. Banks) has a FABULOUS New York Times Bestseller Vampire Huntress series that I highly recommend. What I love most about Banks’ work – the story line deals in morality and character with the protagonist who is a Black woman. What’s also unique in Banks’ novels is the fact that the vampires are not portrayed as uber glamorous figures. PS - Banks is a Soror of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.




If someone on your list is a collector of all things Michelle Obama, I highly recommend Blogger Mary Tomer’s “Mrs. O.” It is a beautiful and well organized pictorial tribune to our First Lady with each style step chronicled with loving attention to detail. I can’t imagine why anyone won’t want this keepsake book displayed on their bookshelf or coffee table.




Looking for something a bit tasty and decadent? This amazing Judith Leiber cupcake shaped bag retails around $4,200 and is an eye catcher hands down. Love the fact that this bag is chocolate too!





While we’re on the topic of cupcakes, do you need a creative way to propose? How about having a diamond ring inside of a diamond studded cupcake from Mervis Diamond Importers?! This lil’ gem will set you back about $30,000, (no this is not a typo).


OK, you have some ideas so get to shopping (grins)!


I’ll be out with bags swinging right along with you. Plus, I have to cook ducks tonight too (whew!)


Good people - have a great holiday everyone and we’ll chat soon!
