A Very Velvety Christmas
When I was younger, Christmas was less about the spirit and more about give me the goods. There are endless home videos capturing scenes when I did not get the gift I really wanted and the most epic moment, when I claimed a box was labeled for the wrong person and to my surprise, something way more major was in store for me. To the future Mr. TC, unfortunately for me, the head Elf Freddie will be happy to show you what I was really like before the age of 20. A cute but bratty Blonde. Alas, as you get older, it becomes less about the "stuff" and more about surrounding yourself with feelings of love, laughter, generosity and of course in my case, sequin-y goodness.
As Christmas Eve rolls around again, I'm sitting here wondering how another year has flown by. Another year full of bubbly, work success, friends, family and my new favorite, velvet. And when sparkly lights remind you it's time to get out your glistening sequin jacket again (thanks Blanche), there's a lot this season to make your heart a flutter. The city and its chic spots are magical this time of year making it really easy to get into champagne tower size Christmas spirit. The stacked Moets were definitely a highlight and truly my dreams come true. I wish I snagged one of those gold wine glasses because really it doesn't just need to be Christmas to display one of those on your bar cart all year long.
When it comes time to fly South for the Holiday, a favorite of mine makes a recurring appearance surrounded by garlands, icicle lights and red velvet. 3 words and major taste... blue cheese olives. What's funny is one of my favorite 90's Rom-com features a martini loving, corporate ladder climber. Coincidence? Flash forward 18 years later and I've become that girl who's also decided, martinis trump bubbles.
Cheers to the season that brings textures and people together, to magical moments and the remaining days of 2017, Merry Christmas ya filthy animal.
