As everyone is freaking out about the potential 'blizzard,' all I can think about is wearing my new ski clothes that never made their way out of my suitcase over the holidays in a ski resort near the upper peninsula Michigan (because there was no snow for the first time in 20 years). Well, that and wearing another pair of my favorite boots.

Which leads me, yet again, to Cucinelli. My mother now curses me for introducing her to this designer. I mean ... I have no words. This is one designer that has every inch of my heart.

Moving back into reality, visiting the grocery store this evening — no, not for bread and milk, but for wine, because I have enough superfoods to feed an army — I just had to laugh. We are funny, aren't we? As if we cannot live a day without bread and milk. But yet, I dream of boots...

Aside from hoverboards, the gift of the season is definitely color therapy.

I have to give credit to my inlaws. They do a great job finding unique, covetable gifts. My mother-in-law has turned me onto a lip balm and hand lotion that I cannot live without (and consequently buy over and over again). And this year, my father-in-law came up with the genius idea to include this Creative Therapy coloring book in our white elephant gift exchange. My husband was the lucky recipient.

Since then, I've purchased 3 more for our family. We love them! We sit and color together while our puppy enjoys a bone. It's awesome, stylish fun

I spend too many hours on various lacrosse fields (and the streets of NYC) to second guess my outerwear. Who wants to be cold? Not I, that's for sure.

There are many winter coats that I depend on. However, I think I just may need to add this one.

Nicholas K's sherpa-lined coat with leather and brass detail is street chic! I just love the way it fastens all the way up. I can imagine staying super warm in this long coat. 

It's like wearing a sherpa blanket!
