Make Room For Romance!

The start of Valentine's weekend has begun! Although, Valentine's Day does not officially start until February 14th, some couples are setting the mood a few days early to kick-off the romantic weekend!

These romance inspired rooms will surely set the mood for love. Pink is the playful color chosen to romanticize the decor.

OK, so these might be a little too "girlie" for your taste (Barbie dream house). It is quite alright to go with something a bit more subtle and very sexy with a white room with sheer curtains surrounding your bed... Very Joan Crawford, glamorous old Hollywood!

Now fellas or gents, this is for you too! There is nothing more sexy than giving your significant other a nice bubble bath after a long work week. Make sure you have a glass of champagne or wine ready! Trust me, you'll thank me later! ;) This plush bathroom screams romance any way you look at it!

The only thing missing from your romantic evening are your Helen Julia scented candles to add that last touch to your Valentine's weekend!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Celebrate Good Times, C'mon!

"So bring your good times and your laughter too, we're gonna celebrate and party with you..." is what we were all singing at Preston Bailey's book launch party "Celebrations" that took place last week at The Armory in New York City. I knew I was in for an amazing treat when I received the invitation!

The event was obviously decked out with Preston Bailey's signature touch of class and elegance. The mood was "HOT" as described on his invite with sexy entertainment to help celebrate the festivities.

Some special guests that came through to show their support were Tory Burch, Joan Rivers and celebrity cake designer to the stars, Sylvia Weinstock to name a few. I had a moment to shine with Mr. Bailey as well.

Preston Bailey's party was a huge hit just like his book Celebrations, in addition to Preston Bailey's other collective books.
