holiday gift guide

one for you, one for me

‘Tis the season, to start gift shopping. I was browsing over at West Elm today, and came across so many great gifts. Ones that would be so fun to give, and that I would love to receive! How great are the book ends?! Only $19, and the pouches, you can get those monogrammed. All gifts under $25!

If you follow me on instagram, you know I love taking photos on the streets of New Orleans. One unique thing, I’m sure I capture far too often, is the street tiles that line each corner. We certainly have a different way of doing things down here, even when it comes to labeling our own streets!

Nolatiles creates replicas of these historic street tiles, making the perfect gift! Not to mention you can have them customized too! Whatever name, saying, or house number you would like {sip, nola, cheers, saints…. just a few of my personal favs}!

I came across this amazing holiday cocktail recipe and cannot wait to share with friends and family this holiday weekend! A few simple ingredients and some festive champagne flutes to get you in the spirit.

1 teaspoon lime juice

1/3 cup sparkling moscato wine, chilled


Pour pomegranate blueberry and lime juices into a Champagne flute; top with wine.

*add some holiday sparkle with the champagne flutes below 

{love the flute idea from cupcakes and cashmere}
