Top 5 Tie Bar Gift Picks for Him for the Holidays

Gifts for him… a simpler gift category as far as product variety, but often the most difficult to choose from without knowing the recipient really well.

Holiday – Beauty Product Gifts + Essentials

Holiday Beauty Product Gift Sets

Christmas music started playing on the radio last weekend so you know what that means… the holiday season is officially here! In the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing my gift guides. So get those lists checked off early and focus your energy on enjoying the festivities of the season! To start off is my gift guide for Beauty Product Gifts. There are a lot of gift sets that are made specifically for or during the holidays that are not available at other times of the year. Because these sets tend to be very special product offerings at a great price, they often sell out fast. Check these out first and buy the ones you love before they’re gone. Continue Reading →

Tote Bags For Work and Play… Worth the Splurge!

Carrying favorite Saint Louis 'Shopping' tote bag while walking to work in NYC.

Tote bags are an essential part of my ‘everyday’ outfit look. Going to meetings or just doing errands, they are my bag of choice to hold everything that I may need in one place! Because tote bags are used regularly as well as in a variety of situations, I’m careful to select a tote that is classic, well-made and in a neutral/ versatile color. Most importantly, the tote needs to be lightweight. I often carry my laptop or books so the lighter the bag, the better!


Tote Bags for Work and Play: My Faves

The Louis Vuitton ‘Neverfull’, Saint Laurent ‘Shopping’Β and the Goyard ‘Saint Louis’ totes shown below are my fave classic totes that I use on rotation. Not only lightweight, these are all minimal in their design resulting in a clean, uncomplicated look. My tote du jour is the Saint Laurent. In classic black, it is elegant and timeless.
