Coastal Living


I know, I know, I said I would not be back till next week, but the nausea has subsided and I can't sleep so what better to do than blog at 1 in the morning? Anyhoo, with so many of my favorite magazines saying good bye it was an honor to be asked by one of my faves to review for Coastal Living magazine every month. The coast is where I dream to live, but until then I can dream through this mag on a monthly basis. Besides always having tons of yummy eye candy, they do encompass much more. Fashion, food, decor, lifestyle, and travel are always throughout. The December/January issue rings in the holiday season with so many goodies, one of my faves would have to be the gift guide. I am always on the hunt for the perfect gift and these would do quite nicely...


How about stripey straws for the one who loves to entertain.


A custom surfboard for the major sports enthusiast.


You can never go wrong with a candle in my book.


For the fashion maven. Isn't she a beauty? Aah, now onto something so very delightful...


With all the holiday parties coming up they have a seafood lovers appetizer list that makes my mouth water. I personally would love this hot crab and shrimp dip right about now. Did I happen to mention my appetite is back too?

I really could go on and on, I do love to dissect a magazine piece by piece. Something about holding the glossy pages makes me giddy at the beginning of every month. Oh that is what I like to do, but I shall sustain and hopefully get some sleep tonight. Have a lovely weekend.

Those would be lovely gifts. Candles are always great and most people like them.

The dip looks great! Too bad I don't like seafood (so many people are surprised especially living in Australia where seafood reigns at Christmas time) when they find out I don't like it.
