2014 Holiday Gift Guide: Teen Girls

Just like with hostess gifts, my own shop has a section devoted to teen and tween girls. This is because I love to shop for my own daughters (ages 12 and 15) and for my nieces too!  I'm sharing these gift ideas that I know for sure are great, since my oldest daughter's birthday is in early November and several of these items have already been proven to be winners!

one: chic glossy Hunter rain boots // two: a stylish camo beanie // three: adorable "lucky" horseshoe studs // four: fitbit bracelets  are a great idea for techie/athletic teens // five: my oldest daughter's favorite birthday gift this year was this instax printer (turns any instagram or digital photo into an actual polaroid) so good my 12 year old wants one too! // six: black Raybans // seven: a warm and sporty coat // eight: LOVE art // nine: a festive array of pretty polishes // ten: gold iPhone case  // eleven: preppy boots by Ugg

Holiday Table Setting Ideas 2014

I've been searching around for some quick and easy holiday table inspiration (it was an easier task than dealing with the rest of the unpacked boxes).  After scouting around the web for the better part of a Sunday afternoon, I discovered a cornucopia of fabulous options over at

In preparation for Thursday, I managed to fully unpack the dining room and the butler's pantry, all that remains is the upstairs (and the basement). Crossing my fingers that we can pull this place together in time for Thursday!

Monday's P.O.P.

2014 Holiday Gift Guide: Hostess Gifts

I'm sort of in a state of shock that Thanksgiving is next week, and even though we're literally still moving in here...we're hosting! Before we know it, the Holidays will be in full swing! It's times like this I'm so grateful for the internet (how did we even manage before?)

Hostess gifts are some of my favorites to shop and give, it's why I've stocked my own store with so many options. I hope you enjoy this selection of favorites-happy holidays!

one- Miles Redd's book is a personal fave, I think coffee table books are the perfect "any occasion gift"! // two- a celebratory tray //  three- these candles are the best, they have a great post use container and come already wrapped and ready complete with a bow on top! // four- handsome anchor bottle openers // five- an adorably chic matchstick holder // six- beautiful soaps in a lovely rose scent, another personal fave // seven- a sexy new candle // eight- darling pagoda brass salt and pepper shakers // nine- festive cocktail shakers // ten- bright and glittery drink coasters // eleven- a modern twist on the traditional bud vase // twelve- lemon verbena room diffusers (these smell amazing!)


Obsession Du Jour: Amanda Lindroth Design

This spectacular home in the Bahamas designed by Amanda Lindroth and featured in House Beautiful is so fresh and inspiring that I feel compelled to share it.  The bright colors and beautiful spaces grabbed my attention at first glance. But what really drew me in, are all the little elements that I'm looking to implement into my own new home: leopard rugs, hurricane candles, bold lanterns, grass cloth, Lutyens benches, graphic art walls, the list goes on and on!
