B Essential: That NYC night in December

Last night was one of the essential New York City nights you have to have. Starting off with wobbly feet on Central Park's ice rink I was happy to find my balance isn't too bad. After a few (slow) laps close near the wall it was time to hang up the skates and inside for some warm frozen treats. Serendipity was where we headed braving the long line that seemed it had to be worth it, it was. It was more than a year ago that I was back in Arizona and whipped this treat in my own kitchen. It was amazing then but there's nothing like a frozen hot chocolate under Christmas lights in New York City, nothing.

B Treated: Hot Chocolate four ways

On a cold day where I've already had my caffeine but in need of some warming up, nothing sounds better than a hot chocolate. I've found so many great hot chocolate recipes lately that it makes me dream of a party with a hot chocolate bar. I could go for a sample of all four of these sweets any day.

B Relaxed: Finishing touches

This last weekend was just what the doctor ordered, a lot of relaxation with a bit of productivity on the side. Starting my Saturday with a facial at Dermalogica set the mood for a carefree weekend with no plans, enjoying the calm before the holiday chaos. I started Christmas shopping with one goal in mind, getting it over with and made finishing touches in my new apartment that is finally beginning to feel like a home.

B Outfitted: Plaid cape neutrals

Excuse for the instagram outfit post but I couldn't go without sharing this new cape that has become into my possession. Capes can be tricky as they are fit to be wide and what girl wants to look wider? Though when sent me this Spare oxford cape treasure it slipped on and remained to keep me slim. I paired it with a fitting dress that fell right next to my curves rather than creating volume. With textured tights, cashmere scarf and suede/leather bag I hit all my essentials in one outfit.
