A growing number of tourists are also flocking here for the au courant designer shops. Vogue featured a collection of Peruvian motifs on its cover, by acclaimed photographer Mario Testino.

Her combination of brains, beauty and charm has made her a leading figure in the financial news business. Her ability to gauge the subtle changes in the financial markets has made her a trusted source for analysis that is accurate and hard-hitting. Her ethnicity, Chinese-American, has made her a heroine to young boys (and especially) girls of the same background.  Her name, of course, is Melissa Lee. And she is the anchor of Fast Money, one of the most successful programs on the award-winning CNBC.

For the first time since 1888, Thanksgiving and the Jewish tradition of Hanukkah will share the same date, November 25, 2013. This will not happen again for another 79,000 years. Thanksgiving, first named a United States holiday in 1863, and Hanukkah, dating back to 165 BC Jerusalem, are two unique celebrations representing generations of history, culture and pride. To commemorate this once in a lifetime moment, Lenox, America’s foremost tabletop and giftware brand along with their entertaining expert and celebrity event planner Andrea Correale have joined forces. Together, they have created a festive table that celebrates both events simultaneously. Since 1889, Lenox has brought families and friends together for countless occasions. Here, Andrea and Lenox, “Where Entertaining is @,” bring these two holidays together on one dazzling table.
