Chic treats

Earlier this week, I sat down to make my holiday gift list and realized I could end up spending a small fortune if I wasn’t careful.  I am a huge gift giver and love finding unique pieces that my friends would normally not buy for themselves.  Here are my top picks that are budget friendly but chic.

1.  Cheers tumbler

2. Dot journal

3. Wishbone bottle opener

4. Hot Chocolate kit ~ recipe here

5. Cinnamon Buns bath by Philosophy

6. Tocca Yma candle

7. Snowman ornament

8. Elephant salt & pepper shakers

9. Kate Spade “tickled pink” notes

Holiday retreat

Home

With the holiday season upon us, a once sanctuary that was your home has suddenly become busier than Grand Central.  Entertaining friends and family can be a split between fun and frantic.  My antidote is making sure my home (or at least my bedroom) remains a zen cocoon full of things that make me happy.

I also find that some of my favorite home comforts also double as fantastic holiday gifts which is a very welcomed bonus this time of year.

Owl pillow: Sweetpea & Willow, Oh La La pillow: Kate Spade, Crown ring holder: Shopbop, Jo Malone candle (also here),  Chihuahua pillow, Chunky throw: West Elm, Kitty ornament: Shopbop, Pine cone candles: Arhaus, Wishbone ornament: Shopbop, Bicycle clock.

Fall picks

cozy
It happens every year.  Cozy sweaters, buttery leathers and gorgeous booties fill my inbox as the Fall collections enter stores, while outside, it is still 95 degrees.  I can never resist that first over-sized, soft knit in the anticipation of cooler weather.  (Vince is the master of these). Regardless of the current trends, I feel there are key pieces and prints that have staying power year after year. Here are some of my favorites…
