the countdown is on!

the countdown is on!The new year is swiftly approaching and I think almost every style blogger out there has posted (or will be posting) their New Year's projected ensembles...so I couldn't resist to join in on the fun! While many New Year's Eve's are spent out and about in the city somewhere, there are those who choose to have more of an understated, low-key evening. Don't misunderstand me, I love a little sparkle and a party as much as the next girl, but this year with a few friends out of town or spending the night with fam, I'm more likely going to find myself ringing in the New Year curled up by the fire with a few close friends and a few bottles of wine (not that I'm complaining). With that said, my styled ensembles for the evening were concocted with more of that thought in mind...then again, I one can only be so understated...

2012 with bhati beads

Ooh, I am just so excited for the new year and the going-to-be fabulous neon hues it will bring with it! Not sure how willing I am going to be in terms of investing in 'main event' pieces, like a dress or bag, as it is still unclear how unbreakable this trend is going to be...but these neon-hued lariat style bracelets from Bhati Beads are sure to be a hit. Look out for these babies, worn on a wrist near you soon I'm sure!

brown paper packages

The sweet Sound of Music tune "My Favorite Things" is one that is played over and over in my house during the holiday season. Gift-giving is one of the best feelings of the season, in my opinion, and although the American Christmas has overgrown and over-materialized, I think the original meaning and intent of giving is genuine. Something small and sweet, simply to show those you love and care about how much they are loved and appreciated by you. The gift itself may get all the glory, but I think the wrapping is just as important! I'm not a fan of generic wrapping paper, my favorite gifts- no matter what lies inside- are those with intricate wrapping and ribbon detailing. Putting a little extra thought into how your gift is presented only makes it that much better!

"one size fits all" gifts

' one size fits all ' gifts
Gift-giving is all wonderful and fabulous until...you reach the one or two people on your list that leave you desperately clueless. It's as if Santa's sleigh has come to a screeching halt and the GPS directing you to the perfect gift has all of a sudden lost all satellites. Well, wallow in your cluelessness no more! I've compiled a few things that are sure to leave even the toughest of gift-ees on your list joyful this holiday season! I refer to them as the "one size fits all" gifts, and the idea here is simple; earrings, scarves, nail polish, fun coffee table reads- you name it! All of these fabulous gifts will always fit your recipients so size or fit is one less thing for you to worry about. Plus, with prices starting at just $8 you really (really) can't go wrong!

'tis the season...

...for gifting the ones you love! I know it sounds a little cheesy, but gift-giving has always been something I've enjoyed. These days, whether you have a steady paycheck or have a rather large hole burning its way through your pocket, the art of gift-giving has adapted with many crafty and DIY ideas sure to suit any income! If you're low on spare change this holiday season, try gifting a baked goodie or even $5-10 gift card to a local favored coffee shop (because who doesn't love a delightful cup of coffee complements of you)! Are there any gift ideas out there that are simply too fab to share??
