Red IRO Leather - Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas
It only seemed right to wear my red leather IRO jacket today

Christine Chin Spa

One of New York City's most coveted celebrity facialist, Christine Chin and my favorite spa in all of New York City is offering 20% off of all of their services until the end of the year.  If you have not been to Christine Chin's spa for a facial, then you are missing out! This is the only spa that truly knows how to extricate and clean your skin. I have been going for the last few years and it is remarkable the difference in my skin. My face looks younger, brighter and healthier. Each facialist has been trained by Christine herself. They have learned how to remove deep beneath the surface. You will leave swollen, but give it two days and you will look fantastic. This is the first time I have seen a discount, definitely worth booking it now and lock in 20% off a service in the New Year. ENJOY!!! xo, 5th


Susanna Galanis Sample Sale

Susanna Galanis is having a sample sale! J and I are huge fans of her chic one-of-a-kind pieces. Don't miss out! xo, 5th.


What I'm Reading Now (and hope to read in 2014!)

I'm almost done with prepping for Christmas and have taken care of everyone on my list. Hoping to have some down time over my little holiday break. I'm looking forward to curling up next to a fire with a cup of tea and great book. I'm in the middle of reading The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman now and really enjoying it. Here's my booklist for 2014. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know! xxj

The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman
I'm a huge fan of historical fiction. This story is about four fiercely strong women who face the anguish and hardship while living in Masada after being driven out of Jerusalem by the Romans. Alice Hoffman masterfully paints the characters so that they truly come to life. I've got about a quarter of the book left and I'm anxious to see how the rest of the story unfolds.

 The Empress of Fashion by Amanda Mackenzie Stuart
The Empress of Fashion by Amanda Mackenzie Stuart
Being a fashionphile, this is a must for me. Diana Vreeland was one of the most influential women of her time and her perspective on fashion still resonates today.

The Silver Star by Jeannette Walls
Not much to say except that if this is anything like her other two books, I won't be sleeping very much until I'm done!

Paris by Edward Rutherford
Again, love my historical fiction. Edward Rutherford writes sweeping novels that span years and generations in famous cities. I've already read New York and found it highly entertaining to envision my city as it progressed over 300 years. Paris is next on my list, followed by London and Russia.

Also worth noting are some of the books I enjoyed this year. Here's a list with the links. Happy Reading!

1. Everything by Kate Morton. I started with The Forgotten Garden and then quickly read all her other books after that.

2. The Light Between the Oceans by M.L. Stedman

3. And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Houseni

4. Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

5. The Storyteller by Jodi Piccoult

6. The Inferno by Dan Brown

7. Firebird and Rose Garden by Suanna Kearsley

8. And books that I loved but I'm annoyed they have become or are becoming movies, The Book Thief and Unbroken.
