Can you believe that Christmas is around the corner? Where does time go? Rose, I am sorry to hear the grinches are out in London but if I know you (and I know you well!) you are spreading holiday cheer all over that town! Flora, send news! Where are you spending the holidays? I am heading back to New York next week but taking in all the Parisian holiday fun before I leave.
Last week, a designer I work with had a huge holiday soirée. It was absolutely beautiful! Inspired by one of his (and my!) favorite movies, White Christmas, he turned his beautiful Place de Vosges apartment into a Winter Wonderland. It felt like Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney would magically appear! At first my darling Nate told me he wouldn't be able to make it but at the very last minute he moved a meeting and made his flight. I am SO glad he did! He was a huge hit at the party-- charming and handsome as can be. It is always a wonderful feeling when you realize that your friends, family and colleagues like your guy (almost) as much as you do!
Sending you lots of holiday love!
PS. Dear Santa, please bring me my two beloved Eternal Interns for Christmas. That is all I ask! I miss them so! xx

I love the holidays in London. It never disappoints. The lights on Regent Street, the decor in Covent Garden, Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park... even the Xmas ads are to die for. I think Marks and Spencer wins it this year with their Believe in Magic and Sparkle campaign.
We are lucky to be living in three cities that do it proper. Flora, O, you best be representing!
BUT with the most wonderful time of the year upon us what really peeves me off are the number of grouches that emerge!
If you are NOT excited by the holidays, then I AM going to judge! What's there not to love? Making your friends and family happy? Or is it that you get to see everyone you have been too busy for the entire bloody year!? You even have a perfect excuse to abuse you liver with wine, beer and so much more!
So whether it is the repetitive holiday songs, the crowded streets, the crazy shoppers or the credit card bill that keeps adding up... GET OVER IT and spread some cheer!!
