Gift of the Day #2: The Cashmere Wrap

You guys knoooooow I love my White + Warren cashmere travel wrap. I received it last year, and it quickly jumped to the top of my best gifts to give and/or receive list. It’s the most versatile scarf/wrap/blanket, and I’ve turned so many of my friends on to them. I have the camel, but could certainly use any of the great neutrals they have.

Also, I found a great one at J.Crew! It’s about $70, and it comes in several colors. An indulgent, but super practical gift!

Weekend Browsing

Avocado Toast at Pinewood Social

Happy Friday! This week has flown by. I’m so excited it’s getting cooler and finally feeling like the holidays! Good news: I found avocado toast this week. Bad news: nothing compares to The Daily and Park Cafe in Charleston – what is this?!

I don’t have a ton planned this weekend – seeing friends, trying a few new restaurants, etc. I’m also working on a few holiday things for the blog over the next few weeks. I definitely want to get out and see some Christmas lights in the near future – mandatory stop at Krispy Kreme. It’s my favorite holiday tradition! Hope you have a fabulous weekend. xox

links & news:

  • really enjoyed reading this Q&A with Garden & Gun’s brand development director. I have several great friends who work there, and I loved being close to the brand while in Charleston – though I’ve been a fan for much longer. They’re definitely different than any other!
  • How delicious does this sweet potato salad look? I’m trying to get reinspired in the kitchen – you do not want to see how empty my fridge is (and has been since I moved to Nashville).
  • I absolutely love seeing how business people go about their days. Recently, The Cut shared an interview with Kate Spade (now Kate Valentine) that was so fun to read. 
  • I get to work with lots of fun people everyday, and one of my favorites is the Bartholomew family. Sarah has a fabulous new series on her site called Sarah’s Studio and it’s full of pretty home inspiration!

Gift of the Day #1: Lips & Boys

gift-of-the-day

December! How are we here already? To really get into the holiday spirit over here, I’m kicking off my Gifts of the Day again today! I get really excited about certain products (as you know…), and with enormous gift guides I don’t always get to chat about all of the reasons I love a particular item for gifting. SO, the plan is to post a new gift everyday until Christmas as a secondary post. Be sure to check back every afternoon at 2PM EST for the gift!

Gift of the Day #1: Tom Ford “Lips and Boys” Lipstick

You may have seen over on Instagram stories already, but I’m a little obsessed with Tom Ford’s new line Lips and Boys. All of the shades are named after guys, and it could make a sweet (or potentially hilarious) gift. I’m personally loving Dylan (a matte red for holiday) and Michael (a fun pink). If you’re feeling like really spoiling someone you can gift the entire 50 piece set – a cool $1950. 

Hosting a Happy Hour on the Road

Recently, I’ve been revisiting the New York Times article “The 36 Questions That Lead to Love” with anyone and everyone who will play along (maybe I should do a few of them over here again!). Funnily enough, one of the questions asks what your most perfect day would entail. For me, that’s a tropical location with all of my favorite people engaging in really quality conversation all day long. No distractions, no real activities. Just wine and/or cocktails and funny, deep, silly, thought-provoking, long-winded conversation with my closest friends and family. I love those stupid “if it was your last meal on earth…” or “describe yourself in three words” type of prompts. Anyone else?
