Twist Off

A couple weekends ago, the hubs and I attended a holiday hosting event at Sur La Table in Palo Alto. It's always nice to go to local events where I don't have to worry about traffic or the fact that it'll take me an hour and a half to get to the party, one hour at the party and then another hour and a half getting home. Thank goodness for south bay bloggers and blogger events!

Anyhoo, the event featured great cocktails by Hendricks Gin and some lovely food preparations by the Sur La Table chefs. It was hosted by Kuzak's Closet and blogger babe Monica of Living in Vogue. Here's a little peek at the yummy macarons that we could make (and eat) ourselves. And the hubs really had a good time, too, because he loves kitchen gadgets. So muses, if you want your significant other to attend your blogger events without complaining, make sure they're located somewhere that benefits the other person in your life, too. And cocktails, duh.

These photos were taken a few hours before the event because of Daylight Savings Time, of course. These days, you gotta get your photos taken at 4 p.m., otherwise, you're shit out of luck. I'm wearing this fun twist leather off shoulder sweater from Chicwish, this amazing H&M coat that everyone loves, and the hubs' beanie. He decided not to wear it, so I was like, "gimme!"
