Gearing Up For A Happy Christmas

I love Christmas, and I love London, and Claridge's knows precisely how to combine those two loves and make them even better:


Lanvin's creative director, Alber Elbaz, designed this and explains “The concept of the Christmas Tree decoration is to create an installation that carries the spirit of Lanvin, an infusion of tradition and modernity at the same time. The tree is to emanate and bring heartwarming joy to all who work and stay as guests at Claridge’s hotel..."

Mission accomplished. Now, you can bring me some of that heartwarming joy in the form of your famous elegant flats.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Out of curiosity, I Googled "best place to celebrate Thanksgiving". One site claims they "rely on quantifiable information to construct our studies", which was good enough for me. I get most of my information from Wikipedia.

The best place to celebrate Thanksgiving, according to my scientific search, is Akron, Ohio, due to its Midwestern location (although many Ohioans claim to be from the East Coast), and the number of people invited to dinners and the number of dishes served.

I still think it would be most fun to return to Plimouth Plantation to partake in a 17th Century feast. A "charger of Holland cheese and fruit" would really hit the spot right about now.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
