There's some select stores that are going to ensure that you can still online shop and get your gifts in time for Christmas.

Chic + Silky Holiday Party Look. The holiday parties are among us and I don't know about you guys, but I'm already running out of looks! In a recent fashion blog, I mentioned how you can mix textures while wearing a monochromatic look. Today, we're talking about mixing silk with a sweatshirt for a chic holiday party look.

Fresh Rosewater + Grapefruit Cocktail

Fresh Rosewater + Grapefruit Cocktail. Recently, I realized how easy rosewater was to make at home. Not only is it a natural beauty staple but I love the flavor, too. You can drink it plain or add it to smoothies and cocktails.

Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, a rosewater cocktail definitely fits the occasion. I added a little grapefruit juice for some tanginess which paired perfectly.

#DesignInspired: Winter Plum & Brass

#DesignInspired: Winter Plum & Brass. In celebration of Scott and our dear friend, Brandt Joel's birthdays I decided to host an intimate evening with friends at our home. When Stefanie Cove pitched the idea of plums and burgundies for a joint birthday for two men I wasn't so sure. Well, I couldn't have been more wrong. It's all about mixing the masculine and the feminine together to create the best of both.
