Gift Guide

If you’ve got a big family, lots of friends or simply a long list of people with whom you’d like to curry favor, this time of year can get…intense. We’re staring down the barrel of a week that culminates in the biggest shopping day of the year (and make sure to check back with us on Friday for a comprehensive guide to the best sales and deals on the Internet), and figuring out where or how to start can be a task in and of itself.

Hostess Gift Guide

By now, everyone should know that a bottle of wine isn’t an ideal hostess gift, even if it is a traditional one. At dinner parties in particular, party-throwers probably have taken wine pairings into consideration, and an extra bottle will, at best, get lost in the shuffle.

August Birthday Gift Guide Peridot Handbags

To be honest, I’m not sure if I have even felt that summer feeling yet, but in a blink of an eye the entire season has passed me by. After being super busy with work and traveling, it has meant I woke up and it’s nearly the middle of August.

Emerald Bags

Happy May! We are already a few days in, but so far, May has gotten off to a great start with the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo. And for all you birthday girls, your birthstone is the lovely emerald and this color looks amazing on handbags.

April Birthday Gift Guide 2013

I wish it were an April Fool’s joke that April is already here, but it’s not. 2013 is flying by, and while I sometimes wish it would slow down, I’m also ready for Mother Nature to bring on spring and warm weather, please!

March Birthday Gift Guide Handbags

March is one of my favorite birthday months because it’s Vlad’s birthday, and I love my friends’ and family’s birthdays as much, if not more, than my own. I always try to find the best gift for others, and although making this guide isn’t going to help me pick a gift for Vlad, it may help you pick something for your March birthday friends.

February Purple Bags

February is one of the busiest months I will experience this entire year, from moving into a new office (YAY!) to Fashion Week, this month is jam packed. I don’t want to leave out our birthday girls who celebrate a February birthday however, so here is the post you are expecting.
