    Molly Sims is back with a brand new book, ‘Everyday Chic‘ and in it she shares her secrets and tips that will help all of us live the chic life.

    I love a good lifestyle book. Especially one that’s gonna help me in more than one that’s practical and easy for me to use myself. A couple examples of this are one thing in/one thing out for organizing closets and desk drawers. I don’t know about you but I’m always looking for a place to neatly store something when in fact I should be looking to store it in the garbage or in the donation bin. There’s also ways to step your house party game up from themes to decor and food.

    And that’s not all, Everyday Chic is also gonna to teach you:

    • Family-friendly meal hacks and time-saving techniques.
    • Party planning like a professional, so you can party like there’s no tomorrow.
    • Strategies for creating a zen-like space and kicking clutter to the curb.
    • The accessory rule for your house—always remove one piece from any room you’re decorating.
    • Prioritizing the positive without getting hung up on the perfect. Perfection is a unicorn!

  • How to Host Your Own Crafts and Cocktails Party at Home

    I recently attended a crafts and cocktails party hosted by the Crafty Lumberjacks at Freshmade in New York City. Founded by holiday enthusiasts Andrew and Dennis who met while traveling together on the National Tour of Fiddler on the Roof! The Crafty Lumberjacks mission is to bring D.I.Y. holiday decor ideas from their home to yours!

    I’m not crafty craftswoman by any means, but what I loved about the entire premise of the event was that you didn’t have to be. Yes, I was surrounded by artistic types that in no way made me feel self conscious. That’s how laid back and fun the event was. It allowed me to tap into my hidden creative side, without worry about what the person next to me was making.

    This particular crafts and cocktails event was Halloween themed and  came complete with everything you would need to create your spooky masterpiece. There was one small unpainted wooden house, one candle and one small skeleton.

    And because you can’t be at Freshmade and not cook I had the opportunity to create my own chocolate covered pretzels. I don’t have a pic of those because I stuffed them in my face before I  could do so. But there were other treats.

    The event lasted from 7 to 9 and it was a perfect way to help me unwind.  If you’re in the area or they host one in your town I totally recommend going. You will have a blast!

    But what if you don’t live in the area and you can’t attend? Don’t fret – you can host your own! With holiday season upon us here are a few tips to help you plan your own holiday themed crafts and cocktails party at home.

    FYI: I also suggest getting a table cover to put down it will keep the paint off your furniture and make for easy clean up at the end.

    Once you have your supplies you can organize your friends for a potluck style gathering or you can buy simple finger foods like chips, dip and fruit/cheese platters. Oh, and don’t forget the wine and other cocktails.  It wouldn’t be a crafts party without it.
