Spotlight: Three J NYC

24 Jul

by Lauren

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that really get you through it…like luxe pajamas.  Whitney and I are both crushing on this new bedroom brand – Three J NYC.  The sets are tailored for a fresh, clean look & let’s face it – cotton is just the best for bedtime.  They also make a great gift!  We are loving on the “Eloise” in gingham for summer!


New Site Alert – Mark and Graham

15 Feb

By Whitney

The Williams Sonoma Company has a new member and I welcome Mark and Graham with open arms.  Their products are classic and affordable.  The best part?  Pretty much every item can be personalized in some way.  Monograms, phrases, addresses…just about anything can be added on to these great gift ideas (for you too!).  The bright colors sucked me in immediately so I wish you the best of luck keeping your credit card in your wallets for this one.

Easter Eggs

Perfect for a munchkin’s Easter basket…or yours because they look pretty yummy.

Personalized Easter Egg Cookies – $28

Grosgrain Border Placemats

I love the idea of these to keep at your table (even if you barely use it like mine).  I also wouldn’t rule out placing one under my jewelry box to break up the monotony of my furniture.

Grosgrain Border Placemats (set of 4) – $59Hammered Coaster

These are just classic and a great gift for any hostess (including those that you don’t quite know their style).

Hammered Coasters (set of 4) – $39
wine bags

I’ve already ordered a bunch of these in porcelain blue to keep as back ups for when I’m bringing a bottle of wine (which is quite often).  I embroidered mine to say “XoXo” but “Cheers” would also be a good one.
