Add the fact that I was finally free to decorate my own space (no more lavender carpet and paint-splatter wallpaper last popular in 1989!), and I quickly turned into a decorating machine. Except I never had any money, meaning that “decor” was mainly on-sale finds consisting solely of little keepsake boxes and tiny frames. Otherwise known as junk.

'Fair' and balanced

Letters to the Editor

Allison Rathgeber
I enjoyed the article on fair food that was in Oklahoma Gazette Sept. 21 (Matt Carney, Jenny Coon Peterson, Rod Lott, “Fair play”).

Jenn Scott
If you ladies and lads didn’t pick up on it by now, Jenny Coon Peterson, ShopGirl extraordinaire, has flown the Oklahoma coop. She’s off to real mountains and cooler temps, and we wish her all the best.

Letters to the Editor

It was with great shock and applause that I read Jenny Coon Peterson’s “Not everybody’s ready for some football” (Oct. 12, Gazette).

Oh-la-la meets fa-la-la

Rub elbows with local celebs and win prizes at this holiday season kickoff.

So, tomorrow is the first day of December. How did that happen? Yeah, I'm not sure, either.

Anyway, December means holiday fun and parties abound. So, tomorrow, on this first day of December, get out and treat yourself at Trichology Salon, 14101 N. May.

The “Silver Belles Holiday Soiree” is the only way to kick off December holiday happenings. The event, which is free to attend, will feature eats from Deep Fork Grill, and you'll be treated to mini-sessions for holiday hair and makeup by the Trichology team. Hello, pampering!

While you're there, get a sneak peak of “Sleigh Ride: A Winter Anthology,” the newly released winter anthology featuring award-winning women authors, including my ShopGirl/Culture Chic predecessor, Jenny Coon Peterson. The cold-weather collection of short stories boasts local scribe Malena Lott, author of “Dating da Vinci,” “The Stork Reality” and “Fixer Upper.” She'll be on site signing books, so you definitely don't want to miss being able to say, “I have a signed copy of one of her books.”

As if good food, hair and makeup sessions, as well as talented locals isn't enough ... there's more!

Christmas will be coming early this year to a few lucky individuals. Partygoers can enjoy a slew of prizes. You could go home with a cocktail dress and shoes designed by local designer Johnathan Kayne, whom you might recognize from “Project Runway.”

Just by showing up, you could fill your stocking with a 1 ct. sapphire diamond from Samuel Gordon, gift cards from OECU Credit Union or a variety of other goodies.

Warm up with some local glamor and fame tomorrow night from 5 to 8 p.m. Bring your fabulous self, friends and enjoy red-carpet treatment right here in OKC.

Downtown Abbey

Before season two starts, get hooked now.

Television series

Jenny Coon Peterson
Confession: I watched all seven episodes of “Downton Abbey” on DVD over the course of two days. Instead of reflecting on what that says about my laziness, let’s focus on what that says about this near-perfect British miniseries.
