NEW YEAR’S EVE INVITATIONS

Do you all have any plans yet for New Year’s Eve? I’ll be spending mine on the beach (yay!), but if I was going to be home I’d think about throwing a little party with these invitations from You are My Fave. Aren’t these perfect? They’re so simple – all you need are glassine envelopes and confetti! Check out the step-by-steps right here

THE BEST IS YET TO COME

Since I can’t bring you all to the beach with me, I thought I’d bring a little poolside glam to your computer via artist Nina Nolte. These strikingly colorful paintings are a part of the German-based artist’s series “The Best is Yet to Come.” The poolside scenes are reminiscent of a different era.  The women are all oh-so-glamourous lounging by the pool in their brilliant jewels, oversized shades and brightly colored turbans (maybe I need to add a head scarf to my suitcase?). There’s almost a Slim Aarons element to these paintings. What do you think? Take a peek at the entire series right here

A POOLSIDE CHRISTMAS

Happy Friday! Am I the only one who felt like this week was extra, extra long? I’ve been counting down the days until Christmas, and I’m so glad it’s (almost) finally here! I’m especially looking forward to my vacation next week. I’m headed to the beach first thing Monday morning! (Don’t you love this image? It’s one of my favorite Slim Aarons shots. It’s actually of his wife lounging in the pool on Christmas. Look at those floating ornaments!).  I’m so ready to escape for some fun in the sun with friends and family. I’ve already got posts lined up for next week so check back for updates! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday. Merry, merry!

PASSPORT: WHISTLER

Bradley may be headed to the beach next week, but I’ve got my mind on cooler temperatures. There’s nothing like spending the holidays skiing followed by hot toddys by the fire. Here’s a round up of a few things that will keep you chic while you’re there!

GIFT GUIDE: UNDER $75

The countdown to Christmas is in the single digits! Have you finished all of your holiday shopping yet? I thought I had it complete, but I realized yesterday that I was lacking a few gifts. (Doesn’t that always happen?) Since I’m not dying to go to the mall, I think I’ll finish it up online. (Note: Shopbop is offering FREE 2-Day Shipping right now, so you can get your gifts just in time!) If you’re rushing to get some last minute shopping done, take a look a at this round up for some great budget options. If you’ve got a traveler in mind, the Taschen’s 4 Cities book set or the Michael Kors passport case would be perfect! Of course, my favorite is that adorable sequin pillow. Not only would it be ideal during the holidays,  but it’s the perfect way to add some sparkle into your home year-round!
