I Love Paris in the Springtime ♫

"When Spring comes to Paris, the humblest mortal alive must feel that she dwells in paradise." ✿

So true, Henry Miller! Paris is Paradise in Spring. You can walk hand in hand through the blooming Luxembourg Gardens. Pause for a kiss under the Eiffel Tower. Picnic on the banks of the Seine...

"Paris is always a good idea." ✿

We couldn't agree more, Audrey Hepburn as Sabrina in Sabrina! So this weekend we're sharing our love of all things Parisienne through photos that inspire us and our collections, like our beloved Funny Face during filming at Tuileries Garden, Paris.

"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris... then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast." ✿

Ernest Hemingway, you speak a timeless truth. Once you experience the City of Lights, the City of Love, you carry it with you for éternité.

Oh go on, Humphrey Bogart as Rick in Casablanca. You're making us blush!

Must Have Cosmetic Bags are Going...Going...

Goodbye sweet Cosmetic Bags! You had a good run.

You were loved by many. You traveled the world and saved the day, time and time again. Like that trip to Paris when you carried her favorite lipstick to the Louvre, in the rain and just after she'd touched up her lips, she met him, and to this day he is still mesmerized by the color of her kisses.

But now there are new bags to be made in new prints and sizes, and new adventures to come.

So this is it - your last chance to get our there and live! But don't worry - there is for sure a girlfriend, wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, auntie, BFF out there who needs you to cherish, protect and organize her lovely, lovely things. And she will take you places you've never been!

And people everywhere will stop and stare and ask her, "Where did you get that beautiful bag?"

Friday Favorites - Champagne Cocktails

The 2016 roller coaster ride is coming to an end. And if you, like us, have relished the happiest highs and survived the bluest blues, then you deserve a world-class cocktail.

We've gathered five Champagne-inspired cocktails from a few of our favorite blogs, starting with the classics and ending with a fun and fruity sparkler. Any one of these delicious drinks will help you say good bye to all that was rotten, give thanks for all that was good, and toast hello to a new beginning. 



Classic Champagne Cocktail
by Boulder Locavore

"A simple cocktail that's easy to make but elevates your celebratory sipping." A cube of sugar, dash of bitters, and twists of citrus give your favorite Brut Champagne a festive look and sophisticated flavor.  > Get the recipe here.

Dry sparkling wine, gin, lemon juice and simple syrup combine to whisk you off to Paris in this classic, refreshing cocktail. > Get the recipe here.

Is NYE a cozy night in laughing and crying to When Harry Met Sally with your Harry or Sally? Are you hosting a dinner bash for family and friends? Or do you dress to the nines for a midnight cruise and toast under the fireworks? However you celebrate, magic can happen on New Year's Eve. It's a blessing, really, to be given this one night every year to look back on both our triumphs and our mistakes, to move forward, to set new goals, and to celebrate.

May 2017 bring you and yours much happiness, good health, and sweet success. 

With Gratitude,
all of us at Jessie Steele XOXO

Bring Happy Home for the Holidays

Welcome to the official blog of Jessie Steele, Inc. 🎀

2016 marks our 15th holiday season, celebrating family and friends, femininity and style, happiness and home. We are so grateful to be a part of countless holiday memories. 

Retro Cherries Apron
Jessie's Great Great Grandchild, Clio, rolling out a batch of sugar cookies in her Retro Cherries Audrey Apron.

This time of year, we spend most of time in our favorite apron, covered in flour, testing new recipes and perfecting family favorites - like Grandma's Cocoons. (see recipe below!) Every year without fail Grandma would bake up a batch of these deliciously delicate bites of shortbread sugar cookie heaven. She filled her tins with layers of made-from-scratch Bourbon Balls, Walnut Fudge, Ambrosia and Cocoons. Every bite was pure joy and we never had a Christmas without. 

 

Throughout the holidays, we are reminded of a time when cooking and baking for two or twenty was a celebration, and tying on an apron meant that love was the secret ingredient. We encourage the creativity of our children and grandchildren by showing them that the kitchen can be the heart of the home. With every new design and every collection of aprons, we celebrate the women from our past and those who inspire us in the present - because they are rich in tradition and fearlessly feminine. 

Wishing you the happiest of holidays! XOXO

Recipe: Grandma's Cocoons

1/2 lb butter
2 1/2 C flour
3 Tbsp confectioner's sugar + more for rolling
1 C finely chopped pecans
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a large bowl, cream butter then add flour, sugar and vanilla. Stir to combine. Add pecans and mix briefly. By hand, pinch and roll a piece of dough about the size and shape of your little finger. Place cocoons on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 45 minutes in a slow oven (275-300F). While still hot, roll each cocoon in confectioner's sugar.
