GREAT KID PLAYHOUSES

October 13, 2013

Playhouses for kids are the perfect “Splurge” holiday present because it’s the gift that will give for years.  Playhouses for kids provide children with the private space they need and the backdrop for hours of imaginative play.  They are made for either indoors or outdoors — just depends upon how big your house is.  Here’s a collection of some inspiring playhouses for your little ones:

Candy Cane Stripe Family PJs
$49 - 39 at CHASING FIREFLIES

FAMILY PAJAMA SETS

October 10, 2013

Family Pajama Sets are the BEST gifts for the holidays, even for the deepest cynic.  Family pj sets are practical (who couldn’t use a new pair of pajamas every once in a while) and yes, they will bring the family together… even if it’s only for that one holiday afternoon photo op!  The biggest fans of Family PJ sets?  The kids, of course!  Bury your inner cynic for just a day.  It’ll be worth the memories.

CUTE ANIMAL SLIPPERS

October 10, 2013

Cute animal slippers — Yes!  We’re on the prowl for them.  Why?  We love whimsy.  These animal slippers are designed for adults even though, they bring out the child in all of us.  Who needs to be serious all the time?  Feet can be warm and still conjure up the kid in all of us.

BLACK LEATHER MOTORCYCLE JACKETS

October 4, 2013

Ever check out an old school motorcyclist and wonder, “Where can I get a biker jacket like that?!”  Have no fear, we’ve done the grunt work for you and scoured the web for the hottest classic black leather motorcycle jackets around this season.  With classic detailing and high quality leather, these selections will remain in style for decades to come.  (We’ve even added a few non-leather selections for fashionistas who want to forgo wearing anything animal, too.)

Here are our picks:

14k Rose Gold Birthstone & Initial Disc Pendants
$249 at Heavenly Treasures

MOTHER’S NECKLACES

September 30, 2013 2 Comments

“Mother’s Necklaces” are personalized necklaces honoring one’s children, either through personalized charms, engravings or both.  We love them because they mix fashion with emotional sentiments — wearing something pretty that also represents the relationships that matter most to mothers.  We like giving these as holiday gifts to the mothers in our lives.  Here is a great selection of mother necklaces to choose from:

WRIST WRAP BRACELETS

September 24, 2013

Wrist wrap bracelets are great.  Sure you can make one yourself or, if you’re woven-challenged like some of us, you can buy one!  We love the elegant yet cool style of these wrap bracelets!

FAUX FUR VESTS

September 23, 2013

Faux fur vests are, again, in fashion this fall.  We’re ready to commit!  We like faux (it’s a kindness-to-animals thing), we like vests (they are efficient during the winter in Los Angeles and the Fall season everywhere else) and we like the two combined (’cause the fur makes the functional both stylish and glamorous).  Here’s a great selection of just that:

FUN UMBRELLAS

September 9, 2013

Don’t wait for the rainy season to buy a stylish, fun umbrella!   You’ll have the umbrella for years (if you don’t leave it somewhere) and a good umbrella will do its job better than a cheap it — it’ll keep all of you dry!   With these,  you’ll be easy to spot in the crowd AND they’ll bring a smile when the rest of the world is frowning at the rain.

GREAT NAVY BLUE TOTE BAGS

September 1, 2013

We just love Navy Blue Tote Bags!  Great tote bags are worth the wallet they carry because they perform an important function (in addition to enhancing fashion) — they help you organize everything you need for that trip, that meeting or that errand.   These totebags work great for the plane, the office or hauling the typical purse-overload.
