You Are Cordially Invited to Champagne Sunday!!!

Last week I traveled to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for business. It was super cold and windy when my business colleagues and I arrived, making the idea of venturing outside of the hotel for dinner a non-starter. Luckily, The Colcord Hotel had a restaurant attached, Flint, which made our dinner decision easy.

Dinner was great, but the piece-de-resistance was my St. Germain Champagne Cocktail. It really was wondeful. So much so, that I called the restaurant for the recipe when I returned home, knowing that it would be my next featured drink on Champagne Sunday. Peep the mixology.

St. Germain Champagne Cocktail



  • 1/4 oz. St. Germain
  • 1/4 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/4 oz. simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz. Hendrick’s Gin
  • Top with your favorite champagne

I hope that you enjoy it as much as I. Chin, chin!

Until Then,

I love the idea of remaining true to the Classic Cable style, but creating an instant signature look by adding color. This is truly arm candy; and the Hunter Green is calling my name!

 Happy Anniversary Mr. Yurman!

50 Shades of Red … Volume V.

Dolls, did you think I forgot? I didn’t! Business and personal travel has left little time for blogging; but never fear, I remain committed to 50 Shades of Red.

Volume IV. found me in Sephora with a tube of Gloss Mirior ~ Extreme by Sephora in Femme Fatale in hand. Simply put, J’adore! On a scale of 1 to 5, I give this 5 red lips! red lips isolated in whitered lips isolated in whitered lips isolated in whitered lips isolated in whitered lips isolated in white


As I shared, I’m not a gloss girl, but I love everything about Gloss Mirior ~ Extreme by Sephora in Femme Fatale. It’s super moist, without being sticky. I didn’t have to reapply very often, and the gold flecks are to die for – just the right amount to be appropriate for the office, while able to take you into an evening soiree. This little number is a top contender for my fav red lipstick.

What’s next? ZuZu Luxe Vino de Amor Lipstick. I love that name, don’t you?! Anywho, on a recent trip to Whole Foods Market I made my way to the makeup and skin care section for some playtime. I couldn’t resist leaving without a new tube of red lipstick and selected Vino de Amor. They had me at the name.



ZuZu Luxe is part of Gabriel Cosmetics, Inc., and is Gluten-Free and Vegan  – pretty with purpose. I love it. I’ll let you know in the next edition of 50 Shades of Red how this rates.

Until Then,
