i admit it, if i could fill my home with high end furniture i would. unfortunately, at the moment, i am short about a million dollars. a gal like myself, in the line of work i am in, loves to shop for furniture and typically goes straight to the out-of-reach price wise. this has been a bit of a problem as of late, due to my need/want for a new 3 seater sofa that is both on the edge of minimalist, yet incredibly comfortable.

luckily, i happened upon my latest favorite capsule. capsule specializes in modern furniture design and to my pleasant surprise, an expert in modern sofa design. the true beauty lies in the fact that capsule not only carries so many stunning pieces of design furniture, but also makes these designs completely accessible to their customers. you see capsule believes that “good design should be available to everyone.” i also love the fact that capsule is a los angeles based design studio. capsule also believes it is important to foster creativity by supporting up and coming design talent by giving them access to product development expertise and resources.

the result is truly beautiful…

Rumor has it the holiday season is upon us…of course, the gift giving season snuck up on me yet again. Surprised yes, but also savvier than usual because I will be taking full advantage of the benefits of the Amex EveryDay Credit Card. I love it when partnerships on bliss are especially relevant to how I live my life everyday…such is the case of my partnership with Amex.

The holidays can sting a bit financially, no matter how prepared you feel. However, if you use the right credit card, you can earn rewards points to get something back for all that spending. Personally, I choose Amex EveryDay, which earns Membership Rewards® points for every dollar I spend — and for no annual fee! You also earn 2x the points at U.S. grocery stores, and it bonuses you 20% extra Membership Rewards points after making 20 or more purchases in a billing period!

As of late, retailers have also done their best to help with the holiday financial pinch…so many of my favorites are offering discounts now on many of my favorite gift-giving items. This can make it hard when it comes to returns. Thankfully Amex EveryDay comes with Return Protection, which refunds the entire purchase price - up to $300 per item - if you try to return an eligible item within 90 days from the date of purchase and the merchant won’t take it back! Which makes sale items a win/win type situation.

In the midst of all the gifting, Amex and myself would love for you to take a step back and truly enjoy the warmth and love that fill this time of year. The #EveryDayMoments during this time are always a little bit sweeter.

The warmth is thankfully predictable, however, there is no reason your gifts (both given and received) need to be. This list of 20 focuses on the gifts that delight and surprise in the best way. I personally believe that the best gifts are the gifts that you will not find on lists. I do hope you enjoy my unpredictable gift picks…

I was selected by American Express to help educate consumers about the Amex EveryDay Credit Card. As such, I was paid for my services, but tips and opinions shared about and American Express and the Amex EveryDay Credit Card are my own.

Havstad Hat Co. for Imogene + Willie

September 23, 2015


i get it. this world i choose to surround myself in on a daily basis is overflowing with talent, inspiration and magical folks so full of both.

as of late, one of my favorites introduced me to a local gal that i am in complete awe of…the ridiculously talented cate havstad. a hatter up to her eyeballs in talent and tradition. a few weeks back i went to a local event celebrating her talent and the talent of a few others: a screening of the handmade movement (which also deserves a post or two). ms. havstad was at the screening, along with a few of her hats. i had the privilege of meeting cate and wearing one of her masterpieces for a bit….needless to say, a huge impression was left.

sooooo you can imagine how thrilled i was this week to lay eyes upon a collaboration involving cate havstad and another mrs. french favorite, imogene + willie.

behold the result of this pairing: havstad hat co. for imogene +willie
