A glass of Jag on ice

It's been a long day.  Really, a long week and unfortunately it's only Tuesday.  Anyone else feeling drained?  It's the damn holidays.  So you're wondering about my title?  Well you need a glass of Jag after a long day at work, preparing a proper dinner and then correcting a grade 10's essay on Shakespeare.  Maybe I'll need two.  



Our house guest since this weekend and until Christmas Eve is the littlest brother.  Hence correcting a high school essay.  I'm trying to be "guardian-like" by providing advice and tips instead of writing the whole damn thing. 


Boy, I'm tired. But that's no excuse for me being a bad, bad blogger.  I haven't been checking in with others, only a few quickies when I grab a few minutes.  My last two post have sucked ass.  But I keep looking at my stats and being like "damn why the hell is no one looking?!"... In all honesty, I understand and gotta pull up my socks... so to speak.  

Please, please, please excuse the arm, lack of make-up, greasy hair and tired face but I must send out a thank-you... This is the only picture I got.  There were plans for a photo-shoot with hair, make-up and a cute simple outfit to showcase.... but I have not been able to do it...yet.

THANK YOU MARILOU!!!  

You are the bestest. xo ML from 20 York Street gave me this beautiful necklace from Banana Republic.  It's perfect for the holidays.  So sparkly!  I love it!  It reminds me of my Nanny, she had necklaces this beautiful which I always loved to go through as a kid.  Thank you hun! xo You really are the best.  If anyone out there hasn't checked out ML, do it!  She is so smart, witty, sweet and fashionable.  I love all her outfits and would love to go through her closet.  Not to mention just chill with her, since she is so cool and interesting.

The holidays always take their toll. Extra chores, crowded stores, general mayhem. But the bad stuff often gets punctuated with delights like your new necklace from the lovely Marilou. The sentiment behind such gifts can be marvelous to savor. Enjoy!

No worries btw, I've been lately and uninspiring too lately... I think everyone's run down this time of year.... c'mon friday afternoon! I can hardly wait for some vacation time!

Xmas can be a bit of a forced march -- that's why I put the 'x' in it.
