The best part of holiday break is staying in your pajamas all day. It’s even more fun, or embarrassing depending on your age, if they match or at least coordinate. I’ve put together some of my favorite styles to help you get you started. Women’s flannel pajama set in white-out plaid You also need slippers […]

My final favorite things gift guide for 2018 was supposed to go up last Tuesday but better late than never. You have a few more days to shop in order to have gifts delivered in time for Christmas so here are a few last minute gift ideas. I think it’s always nice to buy someone […]

My favorite thing in New York every Christmas is to walk over an see the Bergdorf Goodman holiday windows. The signify the start of the season for me and never fail to disappoint.

I’ve shopped eBay for as long as I can remember. I have found so many wonderful vintage pieces of art, china, and silver on the site but they also sell a myriad of new items for every room in your home. Did you know 81% of the items on eBay are new and available with […]

Christmas Classic

11 . 29 . 18

I spent today pulling boxes of Christmas decorations from the top of my hall closet and decorating my apartment. I’m exhausted and can’t imagine having to decorate an entire house. I’m sure people space the decorating out for a week or have help so I’m sure it’s manageable. One designer who makes me wish I […]

I don’t know anyone who decorates chicer for Christmas than Suzanne Rheinstein.

Southern Christmas

12 . 22 . 17

Last December, my friend Dina and I visited Charleston, South Carolina. It was fun to see how the South decorates for Christmas. I love how they turn dried fruits into ornaments and garlands. No where was this more beautifully done that at the Joseph Manigault House from 1803. I really wanted to dry orange slices […]

It snowed a few times in New York last week and now it’s really feeling like Christmas. I love how red pops against the snow so it was the perfect excuse for a color compilation post.

I was going to post one last gift guide today but honestly, I’m all gift guided out. I thought it might be fun to post what I’ve bought myself for Christmas instead. I just read that approximately 60% of people admit to self gifting so I’m glad I’m not alone. I hope my gifts to […]

I know many of you will be visiting New York this holiday season so I wanted to share a few great pop up shops and one permanent store open now. When you run out of time for online shopping, you still have a lot of wonderful options in the city. It was a fun treat […]

I can’t believe there are only 20 days left until Christmas. If you’re behind on your shopping, I’m back with another gift guide to help you check everyone off your list.

The holidays in New York are always magical and this year is no exception. I took a tour of some of the decorations this past weekend and the Bergdorf Goodman holiday windows were the standout.

There is nothing I find more overwhelming that creating gender and age specific holiday gift guides. Instead of doing it the way everyone else is doing it this year, I’ve decided to create a few favorite things gift guides inspired by Oprah. This one mixes gifts for everyone on your list so you can get […]
