Looking for a last minute gift? I don’t know about you, but I love to receive a good coffee table book. It’s not something that I often splurge on, and it’s always a great addition to any home. Here’s a couple of books that would be beautiful on anyone’s coffee table!
Blow Me a Kiss by Alice Harris – Provocative and sensual, this book celebrates and explores the iconic “red lip” by featuring notable art and photographs – including those of celebrities. Boys, perhaps this makes a great gift for a new girlfriend?
National Geographic’s World’s Best Cities by Annie Fitzsimmons – This visually stunning book is a tribute to the cosmopolitan destinations. Ideal for the jet-setter in your life, the book reveals gorgeous photos and vital stats, best local foods, oddities and more on chic cities around the globe.
I’m totally having a Flashdance moment right now…longer sweaters that slip over your shoulders? Nothing sexier for a cozy winter evening. Gearing up for the chillier months just makes me want to pull out skinnies, leggings, boots and cozy oversized sweaters. Enter Athleta, who we all know makes great athletic wear; but did you know they also make beautifully luxurious sweaters? They’re just perfect for slipping over post-yoga or post-pilates class, but you can also just wear them for everyday, too! READ MORE
Ahh the holiday season has arrived! Are you thinking about what to gift yet? Let’s start with a simple stocking stuffer. Sometimes, they’re filled with goodies – and sometimes, not so much (err, dental floss, mom?). This year, consider these water bottles by bkr!
Part of Neiman Marcus’ Love to Give Collection (which was curated by Ken Downing), 10% of proceeds of purchases will benefit the Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation, which supports art education nationwide. I love that these bkr bottles are totally chic, but also a healthful gift that works for men, women and kids. Plus, the receiver can use all-round – whether it’s at the desk or on a hike. Best of all…you won’t be breaking the bank, since they’re only $30 each! A happy stocking stuffer option, indeed.
We’re big fans of the jewelry line, The 2 Bandits, here, and are so excited to see their new Holiday 2014 collection, Under African Skies. Shot by Lyall Coburn and featuring model Jessica Buchanan, the 70’s-inspired Holiday 2014 lookbook combines the brand’s signature bohemian charm with modern edge. Check it out and shop the collection today!
Have you heard of Olivina? This Napa Valley-based beauty company is inspired by the ingredients that surrounds them and handcrafts their products in the USA. I’ve been much more mindful of the ingredients of products that I’m putting on my body, and love that these vegetable-based products are thoughtfully formulated free of parabens, phthalates, petroleum and SLS. Even better, they’re packaged in PET plastic (the gold standard in recyclable containers!). READ MORE
Summer is officially over, and it’s time to go back to school…errr, work. Fall always seems like crunch time before the holiday season, so aside from many meetings, we’ve been sitting at our desks trying to get it all done. Oftentimes, lunchtime passes and before you know it, it’s 3PM and you’re starving and thirsty. Sound familiar?
Keeping snacks at your desk can help with any “hangry” issues, but I find that having a pretty water bottle reminds me to drink up! I love bkr bottles, which come in gorgeous vibrant colors, and are so simple and chic. I fill it up in the morning and again mid-day, and I’m good to go. Need to pick one up? I’m loving this fun purple hue!
