State of the Blog: Midterm Election Day


As you might imagine, election season is a bit of a busy time for me.  So there will be no posts today, but we’ll be back in full swing tomorrow.  Until then, I wanted to keep you ladies updated on what I’m planning for the rest of the year (can you believe it’s almost the end of the year?).

Holiday Posts.  Just like last year, CHS will be featuring a variety of holiday posts.  We will be doing one week of what to wear to holiday parties.  So if you have a specific ask in this department, send an e-mail to capitolhillstyle(at)gmail(dot)com.

Gift Giving.  For the past two years, CHS has featured a guide for holiday giving.  This year, we will be featuring two weeks worth of gifts.  During the first week, we will cover a gift guide for all of the people in your life (mother, sister, boyfriend, etc.).  Then, during the second week, we will feature shopping ideas from local Washington, D.C. boutiques.  This way if you need to pip in and pick up something last minute, you will know where to go.

Cocktails.  Since I’m not a big drinker, I’m running out of cocktail ideas for the Friday Happy Hour post.  So if you have a favorite cocktail, leave it in the comments.  This champagne addict will be very appreciative.

Comments Away.  Last week, several of you left comments on the open post.  I’m going to free up some space to answer many of the questions later this week.  I will also incorporate several of the other ideas into posts.  Thank you for participating!

Tomorrow’s the big day!  So I’m off to do my duty.  And no matter who you vote for, remember to vote.

    I'm not sure which of these cocktails you have or haven't featured yet, but… what about a mojito, dark and stormy, salty dog or an old fashioned?

    I don't remember any fruity drinks (strawberry daquiris, pina coladas) or white Russians.
    This should get you going: The Flaming Sambuca pictures are gorgeous!

    I need to give a gift to my son's girlfriend. They aren't engaged but she's been around a couple of years.
    I don't want anything too expensive because I don't want her to feel like she has to give me an expensive gift — I remember very well what it was like to be just a few years out of college, paying rent and trying to buy presents.

    So something for a mid-twenties gal who's special.

    I also would love gifts for dads. And moms. My parents are not “typical” and so typical gifts never work.

    Good luck today!
