my guest: Melissa of Ruby Press

When Catherine asked me to contribute to this Guest Blogging series I was so excited because I love holiday shopping. I start thinking about what gifts I'm going to buy as early as October and even plan out the gift wrap {which I think is just as important!}.

These are a few things I think I might be buying for friends or family {or I must admit, greedily hoping to find under the tree for myself!}...in addition to all of the chic treats I'm ordering from
our clients, of course!!

No. 1 A box of caramels from Ciara Dolce. Isn't the packaging divine??

No. 2 Diptyque's new solid parfume, in Philosykos {fig}, which is just about the chicest little thing I've seen in a long time!

No. 3 I think Tail of the Yak's antique jewelry section is so well-edited that no matter what you come away with, it will be timeless and chic. {You'll find many amazing Georgian and Victorian pieces, my favorites eras for antique jewelry!}

No. 4 Of course anything from John Derian...

No. 5 Astier de Villatte's Eau de Cologne combines verbena, lavendar, rosemary and basil and has the most stylish packaging to boot!

Happy Holidays!!

The Diptyque solid perfume is my new obsession! Thanks to Melissa for the introduction. I used to stop in their boutique all the time when I worked on Maiden Lane...the bright avocado green walls are to die for and it always smells divine... I wish I had a little Baies candle for when I'm on the road like tonight.
