Merry Christmas!  I hope you have all had a relaxing day with loved ones!  Over the next few days, we will start to think about all of the amazing style trends that happened in 2012 and usher in 2013.  Pantone announced that the 2013 Color of the Year would be #17-5641 Emerald. It’s a color that, according to Pantone, is “Lively.  Radiant.  Lush…A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well being, balance and harmony.

It’s definitely not for the faint of heart, but we do love this round brilliant Emerald ring from Tiffany & Co. that sells for $185,000.  It sure is fun to look!

Start thinking of some creative cocktails to have with friends!  Make a Sparkling Armour.  I found this fun recipe on Luxpresso.com.  The recipe is by Rohan Ogale, Assistant Manager of Food & Beverage at The Oberoi in Mumbai:

Mix all ingredients in a martini glass and garnish with a green apple wedge.  Tres chic for New Year’s 2013!  We will post more New Year’s entertaining ideas over the next few days!  Happy Holidays!
