  • How to be the hostess-with-the-mostest

    There are some things that I thought I’d nail by middle age. 1. it was part of my plan to have performed a daring, sexy image haul by now (nope). 2. I’m supposed to be fluent in at least one language other than English (er, nope). 3. I really expected myself to be an assured, relaxed party-thrower by now, able to knock out an effortless dinner soiree and a stylish round up of friends for glamorous, chinky-glassed, giggly get togethers. One. Massive. NOPE. Somehow the hostess-with-the-mostess just hasn’t happened. So I've done a little bit of research and come up with some ideas for throwing a bash where everyone else does all the work.
