OK, I don’t know how my friend found out, but I have a thing for jewelry boxes.  She surprised me with this beautiful jewelry box for my birthday and I absolutely love it.  Thank You!!!  I just want to know how you found out about my obsession with little boxes of all kinds?  You are definately one of my 4 a.m. friends.  www.potterybarn.com

I found the softest t-shirt/sweater I have ever felt in my life.  It is made in Paris, so it has to be great right?  The manufacturer is Majestic and I found it at www.sweetwilliaminc.com or go to their website at www.clothesbymajestic.com It feels like I’m wearing pajamas all day.

Speaking of Paris, I love the new photo book by Vicki Archer called  French Essence, Ambience, Beauty, and Style in Provence. www.vickiarcher.com

OK-Have you made all of your yearly appointments for the year for yourself and family?  Well now is the time.  Dental, Personal Doctor, Eye Appointment, Hair and Nail appointments, Dermatologist, Mammogram, Nutritionist, Trainer and any other personal appointments. Don’t forget your pet too.  Do it today.  While your doing this what about setting up appointments for your any car and home repairs you may need?   I just took my area rugs into the rug cleaner this week because they have a 2 for 1 special going on. I saved a bundle and my rugs really needed a bath.

I just found a great wine list that won’t bust your piggy bank. Go to www.westtowntavern.com and click on the tab that says wine.  I may print this off and head off to my local wine shop to see if I can find any of these ideas. My very good friend just told me that she would like to become a Sommelier (wine expert)  check out www.vocationvacation.com or go to the finest restaurant in your area for ideas.  www.alinea-restaurant.com or www.charlietrotters.com

Do you need to update anything in your kitchen?  www.surlatable.com is having a huge sale right now!

Do you need to update any linens or bath items?   Lets face it who doesn’t?   I love www.restorationhardware.com for the most fabulous towels and they’re on sale this month.

Clean out your pantry and give to your local food pantry this week.  Food banks are notoriously low after the Holidays.  Seriously, are you really going to hang on to that can of cranberries that you didn’t use over the Holidays?  Give it to the food pantry.

Just saw the movie The Fighter, there are a few Oscar winning performances in this movie.

If you are feeling sluggish try Mireille Guiliano’s Leek Soup recipe from the book French Women Don’t Get Fat!  You’ll feel so much better after your detox weekend.
