I was introduced to this home-grown concoction by my friend and client Broadway Tony Award Winning Actress LaChanze one day a few years ago, and have been addicted ever since.  Seeing we all probably overindulged yesterday for Thanksgiving I thought this would be a great recipe to share to cleanse our palette and help digest all that went in yesterday better so we can do it all over again later today, lol!

  • Peel a handful of ginger (literally about enough to fill your hand)
  • Grate or Slice your ginger into a large pot of water
  • Boil until it’s a rolling boil for about 15-20mins. The longer it boils the stronger it gets. If the water reduces just add more; the ginger is so concentrated it will still be very strong even with the newly added water
  • Strain the ginger with cheese cloth if you grated it or strainer if you sliced it (personally I like to leave some ginger pieces in the pitcher)
  • Pour ginger tea in teacup. Add fresh lemon juice & honey to taste
  • Pour remaining tea in pitcher & store in refrigerator. Should be enough to last you several mornings
  • I also like to drink it cold, add vodka with a wedge of lime for a nightcap

Enjoy and You’re Welcome!!!

Hey Fellas! 10 Essentials for that Winter Sexy Wardrobe: Part 1

There are many ways to skin a cat (figuratively speaking, of course!). We all know there is no bible on style but masterfully being stylish and warm can be a feat for most. Fashion vs Function can live harmoniously in one look.

I love a man with a good sense of style. It creates a sense of confidence and allure to him that automatically draws attention and adoration. Nothing is sexier than a confident man. In lieu of the falling temperatures, I thought I’d share some guidelines to some great style trends for men this season.

Guys take note…print this and leave laying around the house. Maybe “Santa” will help with the list!

Materials to Seek: Tweeds, Wool Cashmere, Denim (always), High Quality Cotton, Suede

From Outerwear to Footwear here is Part 1 of Fall/Winter Must Haves for the Savvy & Chic Guy:

  1. Suede Footwear – supple luxury for the feet
  2. Weekender and Work Bags – stylish bags are a great finish to a look
  3. Great Quality Henleys – upgrade your t-shirt game with these staples in all colors (see color chart for inspiration)
  4. Sweatshirts – great with joggers, jeans also try layered with collared shirt add a blazer
  5. Parka – go for it with colors this season (see color trends chart); classics always are good although safe
  6. Trench Coat – wear with suits or casually with jeans
  7. TurtleNecks – wear with suiting instead of button-downs
  8. Navy Suiting – this classic color makes him look tall (er), dark and handsome…winning!
  9. Chunky Knits – it does so much! gives great texture to a look. comes in a wide array of colors for your individual taste. can be worn with everything from suiting to sweats and upgrade your style statement
  10. Light Jewelry – meaning just wear a little at one time to accentuate the sex appeal. a good bracelet, necklace that falls just below the clavicle and a ring for shits & giggles when feeling a little flirty; it really does lighten a look.

Stores to check out: Bloomingdales, Zara, Macy’s, H&M, Saks, Kenneth Cole,
