OOTD: New Year’s Eve and a Little Black Dress

My New Year’s celebrations may no longer consist of getting all glammed up in a sequins dress to attend a trendy club or fancy party.  It’s been more of a family affair for the past few years. I still love to dress up, though, every New Year’s Eve no matter where we celebrate. This year […]

A Greek Tradition

Growing up in a Greek household, what I remember most is the cooking. Especially during the holidays, my grandma would always fill the house with the wonderful smells of her homemade Greek recipes. What I remember most fondly is the taste of my favorite butter cookies, called “Kourambiethes”. We continue this holiday tradition by baking […]
