VB Black Book: December Essentials

December 19, 2016

The places, people and things we are loving this month.

¡Cuba! at the American Museum of Natural History

Our assistant Katy brought these cookies in the other day and the office quickly devoured them! The recipe is super easy, all you need are square pretzels and Rolo candies. Place the pretzels on a baking sheet with one Rolo on top of each. Place in the oven for 1-2 minutes until the chocolate is soft; take out and place a second pretzel on top. Let cool and enjoy! - VMB

Edie Parker X Paul Andrew Shoes

These are the only holiday shoes you need! Our friends Edie Parker and Paul Andrew have collaborated on a new collection just in time for party season! - VSB

Monogram Your Corroon Bag

We’re now offering a monogram service on the Corroon Bags available at our Madison Avenue store. You can add hand painted initials and stripes to our Big Daddy tote and turn it into the perfect gift. I’m picking these up for a few people on my list! – VMB


Decorating that gingerbread house with the kids just got a whole lot easier. I love this DIY kit from Dylan's Candy Bar! - VSB

Celebrating The Holidays in NYC

There is no better place than New York City during the holidays. This year, I’m taking the kids to The Magic Flute at the Metropolitan Opera, to see Santa at the Plaza followed by tea in the famous Palm Court, and we will spend a day volunteering at a local shelter. You can visit to find a volunteer opportunity near you. – VMB
