happy sunday and reading anyone?

Hello everyone, if you a reader like me, then this post is for you. Sundays is just one of those days to kick and spend time reading, if you anywhere in my neck of the woods, then head to the beach.
So here are two books I recently purchased, that you might like to checkout. Be sure to let me know what you think. Take care and stay tuned for more lovely post this week.

 A Jaunt Through the Whimsical World of Wine.

This is a light-hearted read yet extremely informative little book about wine - is well structured, compiled, and divided up into short little nuggets of facts about wine as well as stories ranging from the history of the famed most expensive of Bordeaux, Madeiras, etc. to what kind of wine was featured in James Bond films. 

Also learn the Parker point grading system which rates wines to why you should drink two glasses of wine daily. Checkout the recipe for Marijuana wine (shushhh!!). Looking for a restaurant that has the largest wine list, believe it or not it's a steak house in Florida that boast of over 6,500 or so labels. A Wine Miscellany is not just for serious wine collectors, but can be a great gift for a hostess or a good friend on any occasion.

Women, Work & the Art of Savoir Faire: 
Business Sense & Sensibility

Mireille Guiliano author of the bestselling book "French Women Don't Get Fat" and "French Women for All Seasons" comes an insightful guide to navigating the working world, living the good life, and savoring every minute of it. 

Trust me in someways we feel stuck or in a rut in out careers or we want to try something new but are not sure how to move to the next step. Then Mireille's book is for you. I love her no-nonsense way of writing and allowing you the reader to draw from her personal experiences as once senior executive and spokesperson for Veuve Clicquot Champagne.

With lively lessons, stories, and helpful hints, she teaches every reader how to identify her own passions and talents, improve her communication skills, balance work and life, turn herself into a winning brand, and so much more.

From acing a job interview or performance review to hosting a dinner party, Mireille shares her secrets for feeling good, facing challenges, getting ahead, and maximizing pleasure at every opportunity. Checkout her online business forum  here.

Your Time (Happy Friday).

Hello my Lovelies. I trust you all a great week and looking forward to the weekend. I know I am, as I have lovely dinner plans with a trip to the beach as well as , to catch some much needed sunshine. Don't get me wrong there is great weather all around me here in the tropics, but when you are working in a cold air conditioning office, you don't see much of the sun or warm weather.

I adore simple weekend dresses like the one I've posted, that's breezy and light or shorts with filp flops and a huge beach bag where I just throw my stuff in. The weekend is also not complete without a broad rim hat, the broader the better.

Well Cheers to the wekend and be safe my Lovelies, till we meet again.

Love Lisa

holiday outfit inspiration

Hello everyone, are some you still trying to find that Thanksgiving outfit. here are some of my holiday picks for the season. I adore the Sigrid Blouse from Anthropologie that just screams holiday season, it's flattering in any size, when paired with Black leggings or skinny jeans. I am also a big fan of draping and the Sirpo pullover in red is indeed one of my favs for  all holiday parties.

Also from Anthropologie is this gorgeous Berlin midi skirt and printed Jacqui dress is divine. So I hope this post might give you a few more ideas as Thanksgiving draws near. Cheers to the Hols my lovelies.
