The infamous do-gooders of the fashion world – Toms.  I can't get enough of them!  This season's desert wedge comes in cool chambray and super-bright suede.

Now.  If you are anything like me, you know you will wear your TOMS to pieces...literally...until your husband threatens to throw them out the window driving down the highway at 80 mph just so they don't stink the car up choose your color wisely!  For now, I am settled on the burlap – a little boho/beachy, and neutral enough to pair with anything.

All the best!

Stock 'Em Up!

Throw on the Jingle Bell Rock and get wrapping! Wait, what's that you say?  You don't have your Christmas shopping finished?  Luckily, I am here with some quick stocking stuffers that will surely bring cheer to all who receive them.

For your "au naturale" friends, give the gift of organic honey-peppermint lip balm and an organic facial peel–they will most certainly thank you (as will their skin).  For the homemaker, a nice box of Ladurée macaroons, a true taste of Paris, and a pretty-yet-rustic candle will be the perfect combo.  For the fashionistas that seem to be so hard to buy for, stick with a simple pair of gold studs and a bottle of Essie nailpolish, just be sure to look up the latest collection (Cocktail Bling) to really knock her socks off!  And for all the others that are pickier beyond belief, a luxurious italian pen paired with a gold agenda will send them into the new year with class and sophistication (not to mention it will help immensely in planning the new-years-workout-resolution-that-seems-so-darn-impossible-to-keep).

'Tis the season to glam it up with Kate!  Love her chocolate bar clutch and glitzy cocktail rings!  May need to get some of her supercalifragalipstick (best lipstick name ever!) for the wedding day!

PS only a few short weeks until we get hitched!  YAY!
