Wow. I’m beyond smitten with this floral tree that Bri Emery and her team dreamed up for holidays. It’s so flippin’ beautiful, I’m this close to purchasing another tree this weekend just so I can make my own. Imagine having this colorful tree up all year round! 365 days of pure joy. Head over to DesignLoveFest for the full tutorial . . .
There’s something about Electric Feather‘s eighties-inspired, minimalist vibe that I’m irresistibly drawn to. Harem pants, belted jumpsuits, and layered skirts dance between casual and dressy. And despite their exaggerated volumes, the pieces manage to look unfussy and tailored. The collection oozes plenty of cool factor and I want it in my closet. Now.
Gear, gadgets and much more . . .
Wrapping presents is probably one of my favorite things to do during the holidays. A few days before the 25th, I wait until everyone is sound asleep, put on wonderfully cheesy Christmas tunes, make myself a cup of hot cocoa and sprawl out on the floor with endless rolls of kraft paper, empty boxes, ribbons, an assortment of winter foliage and of course, all of the gifts I’ve been so artfully squirreling away since November. This year, I scored awesome cold weather accessories from Old Navy, like sweater knit mittens, felt slippers, quilted lined vests, brushes flannel scarves and wool felt hats. Honestly, it was all the perfect assortment of warm and cozy gifts for friends. I also loved the colors and textures of the mittens and scarves so much, I was inspired to use them as present toppers. They’re like little sneak peaks for your besties!
Start by placing your gifts in a plain, empty box with a lid. Wrap with kraft paper or just leave the box bare, as it is.
