If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I’ve been on some major velvet and Bloomingdale’s binges lately. I stocked up on velvet for my recent trip to New Orleans and this southern staple paid off royally during my trip to the Catahoula Hotel in the French Quarter. This small boutique hotel is adorable. So it’s no wonder Vogue named it one of the 9 Most Instagrammable New Hotels Around the World. Even if you’re not staying there, it’s still worth it to stop by for a drink and a quick Instagram session next time you’re in New Orleans.
There’s a place in Soho where unicorns come alive and every day is your birthday! The Flour Shop is my new happy place (aside from my yoga class of course). This bright bakery has me eating cake for the first time in a while. After all, who can resist an explosion cake filled with candy? If you’re ever having a bad day, this is the place to go.
I always suggest that everyone has at least one casual holiday outfit and one dressy one so you always have something to wear to those festive occasions, even if you’re just picking up a Christmas tree.
