I love a place that allows for one-stop shopping for the holidays and beloved-British brand, The White Company, is the perfect place to get gifts for everyone on your list this year. They offer elegant and affordable gifts for women, men, children, and home, as well as gift wrap, ribbon, tags, decorations, and more. The […]

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 […]

I wanted to begin my gift guides this year with some of my favorite things. (Yes, like Oprah but not as extensive.) These gift ideas could be for host/hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, or items for anyone on your list, even yourself. There is no store as overwhelming in a good way like Fortnum & Mason […]

I read a funny Father’s Day card today. It said that Father’s Day was created in June because a month after Mother’s Day someone said, “hey, wait a minute!” Don’t let your father or the father in your life be forgotten this year. To help you, I’ve put together a bunch of great gift ideas […]

Valentine’s Day isn’t a lot of people’s favorite holiday. If you’re dating or married, it’s fraught with unrealistic expectations. If you’re single, it’s lonely and depressing. But it can also be fun to buy yourself, your friends, and your family a sweet treat. In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’ve put together a few great gifts that […]

I met my friend David Lawrence after posting a house he designed in the Hamptons on the blog in 2008. The blue and white home was featured on the cover and inside House Beautiful. We worked for the same designer but not at the same time and shared a love of beautiful things so of […]

The first time I met Starrett Ringbom was when she was working in public relations for Jonathan Adler. She was wearing a high waisted pair of vintage leather pants that belonged to her mother on a pouring down rainy day. I was dressed for the weather and did not look as chic. The first time I […]

Andrea Stanford, Design and Interiors Editor of C Magazine, is one of the chicest women I know. She’s also one of the happiest. I always joke it’s because she lives in sunny Los Angeles. But just because she lives in a warm climate doesn’t mean she doesn’t go all out for the holidays. Andrea told […]

Everyone laments the state of travel these days but what we lack in chicness, we definitely make up for with amazing advancements in tech products. I have two back to back trips coming up so I thought I would share some of my favorite go-to products and some new finds for traveling. There is no […]

Who says Valentine’s Day has to be only about couples?! I think you can celebrate with and buy gifts for your best friend, sister, mother, daughter, aunt, grandmother, and yourself. A great place to start looking is Nordstrom. I love all the different options they carry from high jewelry to everyday options. And if you […]

I love receiving fashion designer Jenni Kayne‘s blog Rip + Tan, named after her children.  It’s full of healthy recipes, interesting profiles, and eco-friendly advice.  Maybe it’s because she and her family live in California. I’m also still in awe of her organizational skills that were on display in Martha Stewart Living magazine.  So there […]

  I couldn’t think of a more fun person to contribute a California chic and casual gift guide than interior designer, entertaining expert, and store owner Nathan Turner. As many of you probably saw of the show Million Dollar Decorators, he’s extremely funny and down to earth. I really think they should create a show […]

Even though Dina Fierro is a beauty blogger in addition to recently being the Vice President of Social/Digital at HL Group, she is the only person I trust when it comes to technology advice.  She was the person who who turned me on to Frends headphones and anytime she links to an article on Twitter, […]

There was no question that interior designer Ryan Korban would be the perfect person to write a luxury holiday gift guide. He is known for his glamorous interiors not just for the home but for retail stores such as Balenciaga and Alexander Wang. What I love most is that his look is sexy and elegant […]

Since I’m currently traveling, I thought it would be appropriate to post the holiday travel gift guide.  When I was thinking of who I could ask to contribute their travel gift suggestions, Julia Leach, the founder of Chance was the first person who came to mind.  She always seems to be off somewhere and they only […]

Speaking of the holidays. I was excited to be asked to curate a holiday gift guide for One Kings Lane that includes lots of chic gift ideas for your friends and family, as well as yourself.  It also includes a few of my gift giving tips to help you navigate what to get for everyone […]

If you’ve ever tried to navigate midtown or anywhere else in New York during the holidays, you will understand why I love online shopping.  Especially, when you can order gifts for everyone on your list. I am especially loving the Nordstrom owned site, HauteLook which features great brands at up to 75% off. Even better […]
