Italiano anyone?


Thanks to one of my managers at West Elm, I found an Italian goldmine in Arlington!!! The Italian Store is a local grocery store/deli that has the best pizza, subs and wine you can imagine!  There’s even a cute little authentic Vespa outside on the sidewalk.  You can buy Ravoli, Risotto, Tortellini to cook at home; I ‘m telling you I walked in here and thought I was back in Milan somewhere.  Goodies can be taken home to devour or you can partake of the people watching outside and inhale your cuisine!  I had the Pepperoni Pizza with mushrooms while my co-workers had subs.  The olive oil chips are the perfect top off to whatever you decide to have.  Check out this gem as soon as you can, it’s fantastico!!!  Let me know what you think.  @KaraAllan.  Ciao Ciao!!

Style at Luciano’s


During the week I work at West Elm in Tysons Corner. At lunch I am a faithful patron of Luciano’s restaurant on the second level near Lord & Taylor.  They have the best pizza ever!! Sorry I digressed.  While I was waiting in line, Vi-Lan happened by and I was delighted by her fabulous outfit!  Doesn’t she look great?  Let me know what you think! @KaraAllan

Look out Hamptons,here I come!


When I visited New York for my friend Juanita’s baby dance, the next day I took a trip with a friend out to the Hamptons. This was my first visit and it was lovely.  We had lunch and I languished in the sun a bit.  It was a relaxing day and I can’t wait to go back.  Have you visited the Hamptons?  What was your favorite part? Let me know.  @KaraAllan.

Unit next time, Ciao!

Babies, Babies, and Babies Oh My!


As a mom of three my baby shower days are long behind me.  Before this month, I couldn’t even tell you the last baby shower I attend. But August seemed to be mecca for those who were gettin busy in December.  I traveled to Queens  the weekend of August 4 for my ride or die Charlie’s Angels friend Juanita’s Baby shower.  Excuse me, She’s Jamaican so it’s a Baby Dance, Man. New York is one of the few places you can have a DJ and play music outside as loud as you play it in the club!  As tunes played we noshed on all the fabulous food and played crazy baby games well into the wee hours of the morning.  Congrats Juanita and Archie, we can’t wait to see baby Ciara!

Baby Cake

My next shower was for my younger brother Chris and his wife Kristina on the weekend of August 11th. It was a family reunion of sorts as my 87 year old Grandfather was in attendance as well as my favorite Uncle Jim and my Aunt Cynthia.  Kristina ooed and ahhed over all the gifts, we nibbled on the California rolls and sucked up the Champagne.  I roamed up to my new nephew Cameron’s room and found pictures of the wedding the year before.  Ahhh memories.

Last but certainly not least, Keisha’s shower (who is Juanita’s sister) was on the weekend of the 17th and closed out baby gate was filled with fun, food and fantastic games. I loved babygate, but I am glad it’s over!!!

Cheers to the Babies!!
