Christmas cakes to bring the festive cheer to the party

The best way to end any meal, without a doubt is dessert. If a potluck lunch or dinner is on your calendar and you are in charge of bringing the sweet treats, perfect timing.

Givenchy Gentleman

Two fragrances, two very different personalities. The Givenchy Gentleman is both delicate and audacious. The combination of lavender, iris, pear, and patchouli-leather represents two sides of a man: masculine and sensitive. Coach Man on the other hand captures the spirit of a romantic rebel, with energetic top notes of effervescent green nashi pear, warm and spicy cardamom, earthy green notes of Haitian vetiver, fresh and youthful hints of suede and ambergris.

Embellished heels to amp up your party outfit

There are many ways to glitz up your party look: embellished dresses, bags, even heels. But embellished heels are much easier to pull off unlike sparkly dresses. You get to choose how extravagant you want your heels to be, like these patented Gucci heels with an embellished bow, or go the extravagant direction with these Dolce & Gabbana Mary Janes. Or you can always turn to social media or this link for more party outfit inspirations.

Travel

Bodrum
Bodrum stretches from Turkey’s southwest coast into the Aegean Sea.

Culturally rich Turkey is sandwiched between Asia and Europe and there’s plenty of historical landmarks and delicious food. What’s more, the country’s host to the most amazing luxurious hotels in the world. These hotels are located at Bodrum peninsula — once home to the Mausoleum, one of the 7 Wonders of the World. Imagine waking up to the view of intriguing ruins, stunning beach towns, and sugar-cubed houses dotting over the green hillsides.
