"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."

Always pleased as punch whenever I see ladylike silhouettes taking center stage during the myriad of fashion weeks and I was not disappointed this season by the slew of full-skirted confections that sashayed down the runways at every turn. I can't think of anything more ladylike than a gorgeous full skirt skimming past the knee and highlighting a shapely calf (usually one of the narrowest parts of the body and often the least shown off)?
A lot of buzz lately about the possibility of another royal wedding in the near future and that buzz seems to center around one young lady in particular, Cressida Bonas. The lovely blonde sweetheart of everyone's favorite ginger prince, Harry of Windsor, is said to be Britain's next royal bride and I have a feeling if the gossip comes to fruition, she will add a bit of much needed spice to the royal style scene in the UK (hopefully not in the Duchess of York sort of way, sorry Fergie!).

It's the Thanksgiving holiday weekend here in Canada and since it happens to be one of our favourite holidays (turkey, cranberries, a little pumpkin pie, three whole days to eat and lay around 'digesting', you can't ask for better!) we are packing it up a little early this afternoon to get the festivities rolling. (Even though we will be technically unplugged for the rest of the weekend, never fear lovely readers who have entered our Shoe Journals/Sole Society giveaway, we will be posting the winners tomorrow morning. If you haven't had a chance to enter, it's not too late, giveaway closes tonight at midnight so click here to be taken to our giveaway page and your chance to win your fav pair of shoes + an accessory from Sole Society's latest fall line!)
Margaritas aren't the usual October fare for us but since the weatherman is calling for blue skies and above seasonal temperatures, we thought this Apple Cider Margarita would be the perfect drink to mix the sunshine and Thanksgiving autumn vibe!
APPLE CIDER MARGARITA
1 ounce Grand Marnier
1 ounce gold tequila
5-6 ounces sweet apple cider
apple slices and cinnamon sticks for garnish
cinnamon and coarse sugar for glass rimming
Mix a few spoonfuls of coarse sugar and cinnamon in a small plate. Wet rim of glass and then press glass rim into the cinnamon/sugar mixture on the plate. Fill glass with ice, then add the Grand Marnier, tequila and apple cider. Stir to mix well and garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks.
