Home is Where the Heart is.

Screen shot 2013-07-30 at 2.01.41 PMIf you’re like me, then you are a homebody with a penchant for home decor. After all, splurging on household items will not only give others a glimpse of your style when they walk into your home, but it will also make your home a place to be yourself.

  • For all those who love to experiment in the kitchen, bring back a classy, vintage feel, with these fun aprons that’ll have you feeling like Marilyn Monroe… if she liked to cook, that is.
  • Perhaps, you’ve had a long day, and all you want to do is clear your head with a nice bubble bath. Aromatic candles are a nice touch if you want to achieve that tranquil state.
  • Instead of piling up your bags, choose the pattern of Handy Hold All that you’d like and Voilà! It’ll be easier to pick out the perfect bag for your outfit, once they’re not all stacked on top of each other.
  • Memories that are picture perfect deserve to be framed in something elegant, such as these frames that double as vases. 
  • Since I’m very conscious about “going green”, I feel guilty when I pick up a take-out menu from a restaurant, lose it, and then repeat the process, over and over again. A menu organizer is not only convenient for me, but also for the restaurants I seem to be taking too many menus from! It comes in handy when I have a “Girls’ Night In” and my friends are itching to order food as soon as they arrive.

Flash Sale: Save 40% on Top Secret w/ code TS40

Look great while also keeping yourself cool in the summer heat! Top Secret takes bandeaus and tank tops to another level. Although usually treated as basics worn under see-through shirts, Top Secret bra tops have such stylish patterns that they can be worn as tops themselves. Some of my favorite summer looks consist of bandeaus paired with high-waisted bottoms, such as shorts or flowy skirts. I like to add one accessory, whether it be a colorful piece of jewelry, a hairpiece, a bag, or a belt, to really make the outfit pop.

Every girl needs a fabulous party dress. Pleasure Doing Business can give you just that!

While I only have a couple of party dresses in my closet, I firmly believe you can never have too many skirts! Celebrities simply love Pleasure Doing Business skirts. Who can blame them? The skirts are so versatile. They come in different colors and patterns, allowing you to style them for the right occasion. Feeling edgy? Choose a bold-colored or patterned band skirt like Rihanna. Looking for an outfit to have lunch with friends? Go with the more neutral colors and pair it with a casual oversized top like Kristin Cavallari.

Sometimes, the most useful gifts are books! Some people might have an affinity for writing, while others have a never-ending need for organizers. Use this gift guide to determine which book would be best!

The key to less stress? Organization. When I plan out my day in writing, I feel myself slowly becoming less overwhelmed by the tasks I have to accomplish. I also feel more secure knowing that all my important documents and information will be kept in a safe, retrievable place (especially when technology goes awry and I lose all my information!)

Ever have an idea and think, “I should write this down”? Idea logs and journals are perfect for the inspired, innovative minds that want to record and reflect on their ideas and experiences.

I have friends and family members who have specific diets (vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, etc.), as well as people who are just looking for  a new dish to cook. Cookbooks with the appropriate recipes would be perfect for them! Books like “The Modern Girl’s Guide to Life” are fun and relatable gifts. These guide books provide a mixture of humor and insightful advice that the audience can identify with.

Screen shot 2013-07-11 at 4.39.03 PMCelebrate parenthood! Pregnancy manuals and other preparation books are great gifts to give to a couple who is expecting. Although I consider my mom a “Supermom”, I could never undermine the great job my dad has done in raising me. Give books that apply to both parents! After the baby is born, help document precious moments with scrap-booking kits.

Giving a book as a gift is a thoughtful gesture. I remember I once told my roommate how I like to draw in my leisure time. Upon my return to school after winter break, she had surprised me with a sketchbook. I was touched that she remembered something I said in passing, and I still consider it one of the best gifts I’ve received.
