The second the temperatures start to drop I immediately start compiling a list of movies and tv shows I’d like to watch during a self induced winter hibernation period. What better way to spend that time on the couch then to be wrapped up in one of these Tekla blankets in a punchy hue.
The Couple Glass by Hay is a perfect everyday dinner companion as she's both elegant and sturdy. When I first saw these I quickly imagined myself drinking a chilled glass of Lambrusco from its lip with a perfectly imperfect homemade pepperoni pizza on a Fall evening. The price point is perfect if you're clumsy as hell like me and fear breaking them.
If you are invited to a dinner party you know the worst part is in the last 30 or so minutes where things are winding down and dirty dishes cover the table. You’d BETTER offer to help the host cleanup (after topping off your glass of wine of course) and you’re a true rockstar if you roll up with a scrub mommy.
