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. Merry Christmas! XOXO, HC Red Textured Leather Tote Wool Blend Midi Dress @leontinelinens @rubyandb Red Leather Shoulder Bag @zoedegivenchy […]

There are exciting holiday pop up shops popping up all over right now. If you happen to be in Ann Arbor, Michigan before Christmas, definitely stop by The Maryn Holiday Pop Up Shop. My friend Michelle Adams has carefully curated everything you will want to give and receive this year from cozy blankets and books […]

I apologize for the radio silence on the blog this weekend. It was much harder to work from Mexico than I had anticipated. Two back to back trips were also a bit exhausting. But now that I am back for good, I am ready to start decorating for Christmas and I’m using Suzanne Rheinstein’s house […]

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is less than a week away. That also means that Christmas and Hanukkah are just around the corner. To help give you a head start on your decorating, Horchow is having a Holiday Decorating Sale with up to 40% off seasonal decor. While the majority of the items are for Christmas, they […]

One of the best things about staying in New York over Christmas is the beautiful and festive decorations.  Anyone who follows me on Instagram knows they are my favorite thing to photograph. My only regret is that I was too busy to make it to the West Village so these are all from the Upper […]

Holiday at Home

12 . 23 . 14

I enjoy reading Tory Daily, the blog on designer Tory Burch‘s website, especially when it includes photos of her entertaining at home. Everyone loves her New York apartment but it looks even more beautiful when it’s decorated for Christmas.  The green living room walls are the perfect backdrop and adds to the festive look. I’ve […]

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 […]

Winter Wonderland

12 . 21 . 14

Sleigh bells ring Are you listening In the lane Snow is glistening A beautiful sight, We’re happy tonight Walking in a winter wonderland Gone away, is the bluebird Here to stay, is a new bird He sings a love song, As we go along Walking in a winter wonderland In the meadow we can build […]

  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, […]
