gift guide for him

December 12, 2016



I don’t know about you but some of the men in my life can be notoriously difficult to shop for (yes, I am talking about you, dad). So, I’ve searched high and low for the perfect gifts for all the guys in your life. Whether it is a new speaker,  a beautiful cookbook or classic leather boots, there is something for everyone on this list. Happy shopping!

gift guide for her

December 11, 2016


It’s time for the next gift guide and this one if for all the women/sisters/girlfriends out there. Sadly the beautiful pink coat is sold out, but is still available in other colours. I have to say these madewell sunglasses are my absolute favourite (I bought an extra pair, that is how much I love them). And I never go far without my swell water bottle. A few other items have made it onto my own wishlist. I am intrigued by the silk pillowcase and I can’t wait to flip through the new domino book. Happy shopping!

trimming the tree

December 2, 2016


I am starting to run out of space to store all of my ornaments but of course that hasn’t stopped me from searching for more to add to the collection. Our tree is filled with vintage ornaments but I am starting to think a second, smaller tree might be necessary for some more fun/eccentric ornaments. There is no such thing as too many, right? I would happily add any of the ornaments above to my tree and think they would look just as good on top of a gift for a loved one. Here’s to trimming the tree and decking the halls and all that good stuff! xo

1/ starburst sparkle in midnight  2/ glitterville reindeer  3/ poodle  4/ spotted hen in black  5/ icicle bauble  6/ felt nutcracker sugar fairy  7/ moon  8/ metallic beaded snowflake  9/ glass icicle  10/ stained glass triangle  11/ vintage clock (similar) 12/ disco ball  13/ glass cactus  14/ flamingo  15/ musical instrument  16/ globe house  17/ pom pom  18/ polka dot hippo  19/ vintage pine cone  20/silver star  21/ tucker the moose  22/ glass candy cane  23/ ombre layer cake
