Uncommon Goods {Holiday Giveaway!}

December 18th, 2013 § 1 comment § permalink

Since moving into my little New York City apartment with Josh this summer, I’ve had an amazing time sourcing items to decorate our tiny space. I love br0wsing flea markets, boutiques, and even the street {!} to find unique, affordable items to make our little basement a home.  So when I discovered Uncommon Goods — an online company based right here in New York City with hundreds of beautiful, unique items to choose from — let’s just say I was hooked.

In line with the holiday season of giving, the team over at Uncommon Goods was wonderful enough to send me Bucky Jr. {the handsome cardboard deer you see above} as a gift.  But the gift giving doesn’t stop there! Uncommon Goods is also giving away a $50 giftcard for one of YOU to spend as you wish this Christmas {whether on yourself, or on your loved ones — don’t worry, we won’t tell either way!}.

So what are you waiting for… enter now! » Read the rest of this entry «

This is it folks!! The last week before Christmas is winding down fast – and the world didn’t end! – so you better finally finish your Christmas shopping.  Luckily you can buy all of the items below in time for December 24th: either on Amazon with one or two day shipping, or for 50% off at your local Target!  So treat your parents to fun gifts that they’ll remember for years to come, by putting a little magic under the tree:

  1. Altuzzara cocktail shaker and matching glasses, for fancy, romantic nightcaps {$24.00 each}
  2. Italian Replica Globe Bar, because it’s practical and a great conversation starter
  3. Nexus 7 Tablet by Google, so you can make them react like a kid again when they unpeel the wrapping {and so you can Skype them from anywhere!}
  4. Rag and Bone Sweater, to make your dad look extra cool this winter {for just $39.00!}
  5. Dinner a Love Story, to tell your mom how much all those family dinners meant to you
  6. Oscar de la Renta pet bowl, to treat all the cats and dogs they’ve welcomed into their home

What are your plans for the upcoming holiday loves? My parents and I are planning to brave the roads and drive to Montana to spend a week with my brother, and I couldn’t be more excited! It will be a long trip – but totally worthwhile once we’re all together in the snow-covered mountains.

Wherever you’re headed this weekend, I wish you the safest of journeys!

For your {Girlfriends}

I have to agree with the Beatles on this one: without a single doubt, “I get by with a little help from my friends”.  My friends who are happy to share a one-bedroom apartment with me and laugh out loud over crappy romantic comedies and red wine.  My friends who have stunning tattoos, love animals and call me on Skype regularly just to catch up – even though we’re thousands of miles apart.  Friends like these make the hard times easier, and the good times even better. So for them this holiday…

  1. Adorable birch tree paper straws, to make cocktail hour even more fun
  2. A giant gummy bear, because it’s adorable and hilarious
  3. Photo prints, so all your Insta-adventures will be keepsakes forever
  4. A holga-lens case, for even more fun photos to post on Twitter
  5. Beautifuljewelery, to make her even more excited about going dancing
  6. A beautiful scarf, to keep her warm and help a child in Cambodia
  7. The awesome Essie set from Baublebar – nailpolish and three complimentary bracelets?! Best arm-party gift ever {and there’s free 3-day shipping, so hurry!}

I’m sorry for my absence recently loves – this month has truly been a doozy. But after {yet another} apartment move in NYC, and a hellish day of traveling, I am now settled on the West Coast with my family for the holidays. I’m so happy to be here… and I also need a nap!!

See you soon loves! zzzzzzzz
