Happy New Year (I’m still writing 2015 on everything and having to change that 5 to a 6, who else is still doing that?)!! I hope you all had a nice relaxing Christmas. I enjoyed mine with my husband, dogs and our families. It was so nice to have my family over from England and we also got the good news that my in-laws will be moving closer to us!

It has just recently become cold in Athens (Christmas Day it was 75 degrees!!) and so this is the perfect sweater, plus – who doesn’t love a comfy sweater paired with some boots! These OTK boots are made of a stretchy material so they mould to your leg and they feel like you are not wearing heels! I paired them with some of my favourite ripped jeans and a super soft sweater. It also just went on sale, what more could you ask for?!

I got these earrings for Christmas and I am so excited to wear them, I haven’t really taken them off. They are great for everyday and have a nice weight to them. This bag is classic and can be dressed up or down, plus it actually holds quite a bit. As you can tell from previous posts I usually opt. for gold accessories and hardware. When I saw these sunglasses though I fell in love and they match the silver hardware on this bag which is another bonus and a nice change!

How did everybody bring in their New Year? Have you guys set any New Years resolutions?

Lots of Love,

Italian Dinner

The other night after I got off work my husband, a friend of mine and myself all headed out for an Italian dinner. It wasn’t anything fancy but just a laid back evening with good food. We headed to Depalma’s, a restaurant a few minutes down the road from us, and settled in a booth with the menus on hand.

We started with some fresh bread and olive oil and also some housemade focaccia bread with spinach and smoked gouda sauce.

Starter

This was followed by fettuccine with meat sauce for myself.

Spaghetti with meat sauce and meatballs plus a side salad for my husband.

And Shrimp Charmaine for my friend Jill.

Shrimp

Shrimp Charmaine – sautéed shrimp with a spicy sun–dried tomato, spinach & jalapeño cream sauce over fettuccine.

Everything was covered with shredded parmesan cheese!

We also paired this with a bottle of red wine! Nothing fancy.

Dinner was followed by dessert (we went all out! ha). The Chocolate Torte, Zuppa Inglese, and Cannoli were all brought to the table and quickly devoured.

I kept the evening casual with jeans, a sweater, boots, and a hat.
