I have worn glasses since I was about nine years old and luckily switched to contact lens as soon as my parents would allow it. It wasn't that I didn't love glasses, it was just that back then there were not companies around like Warby Parker to make them 'hip'. I am really excited because they have recently teamed-up with Leith Clark, the über-talented stylist (you can see some of her work here and here) to create a capsule collection that is debuting this week. The collection was inspired by smart-looking and smart-thinking individuals like writer and actress Zoe Kazan, who also fronts the campaign. By purchasing these frames not only will you look stylish but you will also be doing good since a percentage of the sales will be donated to Girls Up, a United Nations Foundation campaign mobilizing American girls to raise awareness and funds for UN programs that provide life-changing opportunities to girls around the world. You can purchase the optical frames here and the sunwear here.

It is officially holiday season and that means one thing, it is cookie month here on the blog. Throughout the month of December I will be sharing some of my favorite recipes, new and old that will get you prepared for holiday festivities or if you are planning on hosting or attending a cookie exchange. The first step in my baking process is to find unique recipes that will be a stand-out at the dessert table, luckily the December issue of Bon Appétit is filled with so many delectable recipes. I started my holiday baking season with making their Chewy Molasses Cookies that tastes like the holidays in a bite. They are every bit as chewy as promised and the sugar sprinkled on top creates a wonderful crunchy texture. Continue for more...

I absolutely adore stationery, buying it or receiving it, beautiful paper is a true luxury. I am spoiled because only a few steps from our apartment in Brooklyn is Papel New York, a wonderfully curated boutique that specializes in unique cards, beautiful stationery sets and other items like calendars and note pads.
