If not let me be the first to introduce you to a beautiful selection of home goods and fashion originating from the Indian subcontinent. I’m swooning over the many lovely finds on their website and the fact that Indelust believes that shopping should have a social conscience. You’ll find many items are handmade, vegan, organic, sustainable and even vintage. Cool, right?
Since I truly love getting behind a good brand that offers beautiful products, I’m sharing a few of my favorite items from the Indelust Sale (up to 40% off).
Here is what I’m la la loving… I think you’ll love it too!
6 / Contemporary Muddah with Black String / This design is striking and works great as a little end table, perhaps next to your favorite chair, or topped with a round cushion for a sweet little seat.
7 / Festival Double Quilt / I love a good quilt, don’t you? It’s an heirloom. The patterns and colors are so pretty and perfect for passing down one day.
8 / Japanese Basket / This monochromatic basket made from recycled plastic by disadvantaged woman makes a great gift (for a special someone or to treat yourself). It would work great to hold blankets, clothes, or any of your favorite things.
9 / Sequin Stripe Shift Dress / How pretty is this dress? The shape, the stripes, the sequins. I’d love to add this beauty to my closet.
Valentine’s Day is upon us, lovelies. I’ve compiled a few gift ideas for the favorites in your life, or maybe a little something for your sweet self.
Here are a few things I’m la la loving for Valentine’s Day:
1 / Swirl Heart Secret Box / I love a good secret and this sweet little box could hold one. It’s made of cherry wood and has a sliding dovetail lid. Great for hiding a little love note, a tiny gift, a precious keepsake, or maybe a poem.
2 / Saddle Bag / A great looking bag is good gifting on any holiday, if you ask me. This classic saddle bag is edgy. Some years black is better then red or pink on Valentine’s.
3 / Olio E Osso No. 2 / Give your lips or cheeks a kiss with this dreamy colored balm.
5 / bkr glass water bottle / Sometimes practical gifts are the best. For a friend, for a sister, for yourself.
6 / Aloha Chocolate / Chocolate. Always chocolate on Valentine’s. But, have you tried superfood chocolate? I haven’t, but I’m hoping my honey gets this for me.
7 / Love + Peace Sparkling Pink Butter Bath / Love and peace. Couldn’t we all use a little more of that? This love and peace comes by way of a bath. I’m becoming a bit of a bath addict. Soaking in salts is my new night time ritual and this muscle soothing mix is divine.
8 / Measuring Spoons / These measuring spoons are anything but average. “A dash of humor,” “A heap of happiness,” “A pinch of kindness,” and so on.
9 / Engraved Bangle / The next best thing to tattooing yourself. I love jewelry that is not only gorgeous, but meaningful. I love these engraved bangles that can be inscribed with names, dates, roman numerals or any word that holds a special meaning or memory.
10 / Cherry Blossom Jewelry Box by Heartwood Creations/ How about a special designated place for keeping all of your gorgeous jewelry? This jewelry box is top notch. It’s designed with removable drawers and top inserts, and it can be arranged to fit your unique collection. I personally am a fan of having a place to put my very special pieces of jewelry.

10 days until Christmas! Stressed or super excited?
Or somewhere smack dab in the middle, like me? I still have some online shopping to wrap up and some old-school store shopping to do to. In the meantime, I made a little wish list. I’m on the other-side of life where it’s more fun to give then receive, but one of the most fun things about Christmas when I was a kid was looking through catalogs and making lists. So, I thought why not. My hubby and I usually don’t do gifts, anymore, so this was for pure fun, and maybe it will give you a few more ideas if you are stuck on what to give.
4 / Electric Kettle : I’ve always loved tea, but these days, while I’m off of coffee (might give it a try tomorrow and see what happens!) I’m drinking tons of it. I’ve never had an electric kettle, but all the Brits do so I don’t know what I’m waiting for. This is the cutest one around.
7 / Slippers : I’ve taken to wearing my birks around the house and I think winter rather requires slippers, don’t you?
8 / Chunky Knit Raglan : I don’t have anything from Everlane. As a blogger, I’m kind of embarrassed by that. Kidding. Kind of. I hear their t-shirts are the best. But, since it’s chilly out, I’m eyeing this sweater.
Let’s be honest the hardest ones to buy for at Christmas are guys. At least they are for me. I hope the Mister Gift Guide will help you out if you are feeling stumped. It gave me some good ideas for my own guy as I was searching high and low for man things. Whether you are hunting for husband, boyfriend, father, brother, friend….these items are perfect for any mister in your life.
1 / Camping Survival Tool : If an outdoors type is on your list. My husband doesn’t camp, but he hunts and is out in the woods and I think this would be a great gadget for him to have on hand.
2/ Breakfast Sandwich Maker : I usually am not for gadgets, but we make egg sandwiches a lot in our house. As in almost everyday. And, guess who eats them? The boys.
3 / Alarm Clock : If you are trying to get your guy to not take his phone to bed, then a good old alarm clock might just do the trick. Love the design of this one.
4 / Leather Catchall : I’m certain my grandpa and dad had one of these. I think all men should. And, this particular one helps give sustainable work to women in Africa.
5 / Travel Kit : Such cool design. And, who knows maybe this will get your guy thinking about taking you on a trip.
6 / Zippo Hand Warmer : The perfect stocking stuffer for guys. Whether the mister on your list likes to go to outdoor sports games, hunt, camp this hand warmer will keep him warm as it stays warm for 12 hours. I want one.
