It's so cold and snowy here in NYC (with more flurries predicted for Wednesday) that it's hard to believe both of the nation's east coat groundhogs predicted an early spring. I'll take them at their word though–I'm ready for this weather to change for the warmer. In the meantime, I'm getting so much use out of my new Etre gloves–they're missing the tips of their index fingers and thumbs to make texting on a touch screen (and working my DSLR) super easy when it's frosty outside. I've mentioned my love affair with GiGi New York–a beautiful brand of luxe leather products that come shipped in the most gorgeous packaging–before so I'm happy to share that their parent company Graphic Image is in the midst of their annual sale for the entire month of February. I'll post more about the event as it unfolds, but for now be sure to use the code BEAUTIFUL (made especially for this blog and my readers) and you'll get a free surprise gift with every order until March 4th. Check it out–because nothing beats the winter blues like shopping!
