This weekend was full (and I mean full) of everything Christmas: Shopping, wrapping, and, cooking. I bought gifts for everyone in my family, wrapped over 30 presents in two days, and made up a few batches of peppermint bark. I had my nails painted red (Essie’s Lollipop), swiped my lips with red lipstick (Mac’s Russian Red), and threw on some pearls and a black satin bow headband for a night out. We found an amazing wine bar in the East Village that serves obscure wines and late night Nutella cookie sandwiches. Stay tuned later this week for the peppermint bark recipe and photos of my gift-wrapping extravaganza!
