Holiday Gift Guide: The Homebody

posted on: Sunday, November 19, 2017

In the midst of winter, it's all about cozy little indulgences.  (And let's be real: these items would carry that warm fuzzy feeling all year long...!) A few pieces I personally enjoy at home are: this holiday candle (which comes in a variety of sizes, like this votive that'd make a great hostess gift), a marble wine cooler that can double as a kitchen utensil holder, this ultra-soft pajama set and a pair of faux fur slippers. Also on my radar: this monogrammable champagne bucket and rose gold brush set (only $16). You can browse these gift ideas below, or click directly on the image above. Enjoy!


Holiday Preview

It's almost here... the holiday season, that is! While I've been trying my best to slow down and enjoy Fall as much as possible, I can't help but feel excited for Christmas. Each year, I dedicate a series of posts toward holiday gift guides — and this season is no exception! The holiday series will officially kick off next week... but until then, a little preview of my Christmas favorites.

Good morning! I'm happy to share more of my recent visit to Middleburg, Virginia. During my stay, autumn was in full swing. Along with this cozy cape, I wore this camel wool coat on repeat. The coat is the perfect weight for this time of year — and looks polished, whether worn casually or dressed up. The coat comes in 3 colors and is currently on sale (50% off!), if interested.

Greetings from Virginia! I've spent the past few days in Middleburg, which is considered our nation's 'Horse and Hunt' capital. As you can see, the landscape is truly beautiful — with rolling hills in colorful foliage this time of year. (There's no better place to enjoy fall, if you ask me!) I'm visiting my friend, Morgan, who's working locally as a winemaker. We've been enjoying wine (of course) along with Middleburg's charming town and the Loudoun Fairfax Hunt on Sunday. It's been wonderful to experience this historic and gorgeous part of our country, especially in autumn.
