These beautiful baskets are handmade in Africa in gorgeous shades of blues. They make ideal gifts, can be used in so many ways, and come in various sizes. $32-$155, My House of Style, 574 Old Woodward, Birmingham (shop similar)

4. Holiday gathering place

What can be more special than meeting up with friends and loved ones during the Holidays. The iconic Caucus Club is the ideal setting with its luxurious new blue velvet decor ( their tufted booth banquettes are divine! ) live music, and delicious desirable menu. Trivia tidbit: Barbra Streisand got her start there, just sayin’. Caucus Club, 150 W Congress St, Detroit, MI 48226

5. Cropped flare leg jean

There’s so many new styles in jeans; baggy, relaxed,  boyfriend, wide cuffed…. But my current favorite is the cropped flare. I love this pair from Rag and Bone because of the two types of washes at the hem. $250, Caruso Caruso, 166 W. Maple, Birmingham, SHOP: Rag & Bone Crop Flare Jeans

6. Shoetopia

Incorporate a statement piece of furniture to add sizzle to any room. I love this non traditional bookshelf in shimmering taupe paint foe eye popping style. 45W x 14.25D x 35H, $1369 Scott Shuptrine, 32301 Woodward Ave, Royal Oak. 17145 Kercheval Ave, Grosse Pointe. (Shop similar)

9. White nails

This Holiday season treat yourself to an “Alpine Snow” manicure at Adore Nails. OPI color, and ask for “Red” she’s my fave nail technician! While you’re there, drop by next door to La Strada for a cappuccino (same owners). Adore Nails and Spa, 241 East Merrill Street, Birmingham

10. Dress with Assymetrical Hem

When it’s time to dress up, choose a dress with an asymmetrical hemline for just a hint of added allure. “Abbey” dress by Likely. $298, Found Objects, 168 Old Woodward, Birmingham, (Shop similar)
