Customizing your Corky Kouture

There have been several mentions in past blogs about how you can customize your own Corky Kouture bottled gift bag and the Presentation Box that it comes in.  This blog will give you an up close view of how we 
customized the Corky Kouture we gifted Marie Osmond.  

In order to get a general idea of the components we will be discussing, I am giving you pictures of every item of the bag and presentation box that can be easily customized.

The Perfect Holiday Feast!

The holidays are fast approaching, and other then spending quality time with my family and loved ones, I am thinking about all the great food I will get to indulge in without guilt.  (Well not as much much guilt that is ~ after all.. isn't that part of the holiday tradition? ~ EATING!!)

Everyone has their favorites that spread across their holiday tables ~ sweet potatoes ~ the turkey/ham or other huge festive meat ~ the side dishes galore ~ and of course the desserts!

What one dish is a must have on your holiday table or it just wouldn't seem like a holiday?

Corporate Gifting Idea and more –

Tis’ the season for many corporations to start gifting employees and clients for their dedication throughout the year.  I have a cabinet full of company coffee cups, a drawer full of ink pens (although some are rather nice) and various other miscellaneous office trinkets that I have received through the years as corporate gifts.

The Holiday Dinner Party ~ Ho! Ho! Ho!!

No matter how much we want to pretend that the holidays are NOT just around the corner, they are.  Are you one of those shoppers that have your gifts wrapped up months before Christmas?  I’m not.  Unfortunately I am still shopping; often times even on the night before Santa makes his grand appearance.  I wish I could be one of those that have everything done weeks in advance but there always seems to be unexpected events or people that show up on my list that keeps me going till the very last moments.

Celebrate Womanhood

I’m a diva, she’s a diva, wouldn’t you like to be a diva too..?  If you have been following this blog you already know our definition of what a real diva is, if you haven’t check out this blog :  "Divas are Ageless"

Divas are Ageless

What do you think of when you think of a Diva?  If you are thinking of high maintenance and full of drama, I am thinking you have the wrong view of just what a Diva is.  That actual original word Diva is a “term used to describe a woman of outstanding talent in the world of opera.”   However, it is the sense of the word – “goddess” and through time came to be known as a woman who is in touch with their inner goddess, is talented and knows what she wants and goes after it.

Woot Woot!!! She is 21!

I know there are plenty of Diva’s out there.  I would almost bet you know one too!  They won’t leave the house without their makeup, not a hair out of place, and strutting an outfit to die for.  I know one young lady (Takesia) who recently turned 21 who happens to be the Webster Dictionary definition of “Diva”.  She even does mundane things such as dishes, cooking, and even laundry in heels.  Yes heels and no less then 4 inch ones at that!  Her reasoning behind the housework in heels is that housework is the one thing she doesn’t enjoy doing so if she is doing it in her heels it makes her feel better about doing it.  Whatever works for her!  ;-)

Wrapping Up the Holidays

It seems to me that some countries celebrate more holidays than we do. We might spend a fortune and abundant time on the biggies, but there are dozens of other holidays throughout the year when we could be making merry. Holiday Smart has a pretty complete listing of all this year’s special days. Why not make it a challenge to observe as many happy days as possible?

How to Really Please on Mother in Law’s Day

Did you know there is a special day set aside for Mother in Laws? I did not know that until just recently. Similar to Mother's Day, this observance was started in 2002 to celebrate those special In-Laws!  It takes place on the fourth Sunday of every October – this time on the 23rd of October, 2011. I am sure there are a lot of daughter in laws, son in laws, and even mother in laws who would like to celebrate this day if only they knew about it. Well, this is my announcement to the world that the day for honoring the woman who brought your loved one into the world is right around the corner!

Dinner Parties to Die For!

After all, it is often extremely important to make a good impression. Whether you are entertaining business associates from out of town or a group of employees, you want to come off in the best possible light.

Your Turn to Plan for a Girls’ Night Out?

If you are considering going on a girls’ night out, the first examples that pop into your head will probably be the common ones. I know I always think of going to a movie or a bar. What if you are in charge of making the plans for your next outing? Will you choose the same old tired activities? What if you could come up with a better idea?

It’s All in the Presentation Dahlings!

One of my favorite things to do in my free time is to hang out with my Diva Dahlings ~ my girlfriends.  J  You know how it is when you are with your girlfriends and no matter what may be going on in your life at the time; you always end up feeling great. It doesn’t matter what you are doing, from sitting around chatting while drinking a cheap bottle of wine or sipping on some ice tea, a great time is always had.  I always end up feeling renewed, special and just great all over.  (Strikingly similar to receiving a fabulous gift.)
