So, my hubby is in bed right now. He’s not feeling well, but he’s been munching Echinacea, Vit C, Zinc and Oscillococcinum (why on earth did they name it that??), so hopefully he’ll feel better soon. Later today we’ll be driving to Vermont for a romantic weekend away at a fab Relais & Chateaux property (more to come on that tomorrow).

That’s why I was psyched that Luvocracy asked me to be a “tastemaker”*. Luvocracy is a new site that is basically like Pinterest, except everything you see you can buy straight from the site — no more being re-directed to other sites! Oh, and they’ll automatically search for the lowest price on the web for you! If you don’t like it, you can return it within 30 days. I also noticed that they can get their hands on hard-to-find products that I couldn’t even find in-store, like a really cool ombre H&M shirt I absolutely “need”. Read more
