Holiday retreat


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.

The little things…


It seems like the first signs of the holiday season emerge earlier and earlier each year.  I have to admit, I was slightly offended last year when I saw the first pop up ornament store in early September.  This season, my gift gathering will start early as usual but honestly, I compile my lists throughout the year.

Gift giving is something I have always enjoyed.  I love the idea that a small, thoughtful token can remind someone that you are thinking of them.  The above items are some of my personal favorites anytime of the year and all under $100!

(Careful with the Levain cookies….they are seriously addictive} 🙂
