Party Gypsy Style

24 Dec

We were so lucky to have such a great turn out for our Rae Francis and Jewelry by Allegra Trunk show on Wednesday, December 18th. Thank you to everyone who participated and attended! We raised a lot of money to donate to the Pat Reeves Village Shelter – we couldn’t be more proud to be helping such a worthy organization! The food and wine was donated by Gigi’s Tap and Table located here in Palm Beach and DJ Adam Lipson lent a hand and some tunes! Heather Lowenthal of Posh Parties styled the event! Here’s a little picture recap of the evening!!

Holiday Gift Guide: Bosses and Grandma

18 Dec

Greetings gift givers! We’re back and ready to spread the holiday cheer with some new ideas for the boss ladies and grandmothers in your life!

Now if you’re anything like us, you count your lucky stars to have an awesome boss. So we picked out some lovely gift ideas that might just end up with you getting that corner office you’ve been dreaming of! Or at least a Starbucks coffee!

This gift set is great for the jet-setting boss who appreciates all the adventures life has to offer. Our favorite? The New York Times  “36 Hours ” books–they give great travel tips on how to spend a long weekend abroad! Maybe your boss can even start to plan a company vacation :::wink wink:::.

We’re loving these product suggestions! Whether your grandmothers style is soft and classic or if she can rock a little edge here and there, some picks of this collection are sure to get you on her “Favorite Grandchild List.”  She’s not fooling anyone, we know she has one!

This week we have the pleasure of hosting a trunk show for two local Palm Beach gals – Christina Coniglio and her design partner Ariel Lilly of Rae Francis and Allegra Fanjul of Jewelry by Allegra!! We love our locals and we jumped at the chance to get these talented designers all to ourselves for this special event! As an added bonus – Heather Lowenthal of Posh Parties is styling the event for us. Adam Lipson will be our guest DJ for the evening, and Gigi’s Tap and Table will be providing our sips and bites! How lucky are we??

We’ll be donating a portion of the proceeds from the evening to the Pat Reeves Village Homeless Shelter to make Welcome Baskets for the people who use the shelter. We’ll also have a donation station set up where guests can donate money directly to purchasing Welcome Basket items. We’ll be creating the baskets post event and delivering them to the shelter!

Holiday Gift Guide: Kids

You’ll have the excuse the late post. We blame the tryptophan.

But here we are again with some gift ideas for the kiddos! This will be our last post geared towards the boys–so unfortunately, we can’t help with the picky boyfriend, husband, or brother. (Hint: Watches are always a safe bet,right?)

Back to the kids, we again picked some of our newest and best selling items for you to check out! Let’s start with the little ladies…

We are absolutely obsessed with this ensemble. The accessories make the outfit even more trendy and we’re loving the color combination. And most importantly, the skirt is perfect for twirling. We rest our case.

Moon et Miel Juliette Skirt: $88
Wee Ones Basic Bow: $8.50
Rolf Bleu iPhone 5 purse case: $28
Rubbzy Rubber Bands (for rainbow loom): $5 each

And for the boys?

This gift set is basically a sleepover in a bag. The Made with Love and Kisses lounge pant looks cozy enough to spend the entire holiday season in and between the ever popular Magformers and Yackety Smack! game, this might be the first year you don’t have to argue over who gets the rights to TV time!

Hey, on a serious note, do those lounge pants come in adult sizes?

Ralph Lauren Crew Tee: $18
Made with Love & Kisses Basketball Lounge Pants: $46
Magformers 14 Piece Set: $24
Yackety smack! Game: $18

Kid’s Korner ~ Don’t Forget the Kids!

9 May

You wouldn’t be a mom without those little minis who are always by your side! Sure they tend to track mud in the house or scream at awkward times in public, but the hugs and kisses at the end of each day make being a mom the most rewarding job you’ll ever do!

We put together some gifts for the ones who gave you the title role of MOM!
