When you travel, how do you store your jewelry? I usually use the old ‘zip lock bag’ method – which normally works out well if you take the time to bag each piece individually. However recently I jetted away to celebrate my Mom’s birthday and didn’t take the time to separate my bling. Needless to say I came home to one giant ball of necklaces and lost a good hour of my life sorting them out. So I’m thinking it’s time to get a travel case… and I’m loving this one from Mark and Graham.

Stay ahead of the game this year and get those essential cards before Christmas – if you already have them, you might even get a head start on writing them (rather than waiting until spring, like I often do).
Here are a few of my favourites on the market right now.

Pyjamas are a classic Christmas gift – but why give the same old boring flannel set? When I saw these Aerie Lace Sleep Boxers (lace + peach = love at first sight), I thought to myself that there’s got to be more cute options out there. That’s when I went hunting for pyjamas that I’d love to unwrap on Christmas day. Here’s what I found!
