Gift Guide :: The Creative Girl

If you ask me, picking out a present for your artistic, creative friends is a walk in the park… because even if you give them something they don’t necessarily want or need, they’ll without-a-doubt, always find some way to use, upcycle or repurpose it! Since we’re lucky enough to work with so many creative ladies, we thought… read more

10 Best :: Stocking Stuffers

It’s officially on, folks! Holiday madness is in full swing… I know this because, at this moment, it’s 6 am and my mother and sister are urging me to get dressed to had out to stores. Have any of you already checked off the majority of your list? If so, my hat’s off to you.… read more

Sweet Talker

I know it’s still January, but I just can’t resist doing a bit of pre-planning for Valentine’s Day. Even the years when I’ve been single (which, let’s face it, has been most years!) I’ve always had a soft spot for the sweet nothings & tokens of affection that go hand-in-hand with V-day. Even if sonnets… read more

How brilliant are these gift boxes filled with all the fixin’s for a custom cocktail? Photographer Victor Sizemore whipped these up for his bourbon drinking buddies, and I can’t wait to adapt the idea as luxe favors for a multitude of parties.

Sweet Somethings

Anyone else falling for these sugary gestures of romance from Williams-Sonoma’s new offerings?

Wrap It Up

Happy December, my dears!! I’m welcoming this month of festivities by baking my first big batch of Christmas cookies (Raspberry-Almond Thumbprints).  Since I find baking therapeutic during the craziness of the holidays, I always end up with WAY more cookies than A & I can consume (although we definitely give it our best shot). I’ve… read more
