January 22nd 2014

If you're starting to think about what to get your one and only, Rue La La has a nice V-day shop set up with everything from clothes to gadgets, and even Rolexes for those really fancy dudes.  Personally, we're partial to fun and stylish gifts like this cozy fair isle sweater or a  classic Sperry watch. We'd love to hear from you ladies on the best gift you ever gave your guy. Leave us a comment here or on Facebook and share your pearls of wisdom from one sister to another! Read more...

A Toast to You

January 20th 2014

The Registry at Bloomingdale's offers so many incredible perks to registrants that it's hard to imagine needing another reason to choose the home of the Big Brown Bag for all your nesting needs...but one look at this pair of Waterford Lismore Nouveau stemless wine glasses - which they are gifting to couples who open a qualifying registry before February 28th - and we've fallen in love all over again. We'll drink to that!  Read more...

Today, Choose Love.

January 20th 2014

Among Martin Luther King Jr.'s more memorable quotes was this one about choosing love over hate.  What a wise, wise man he was. Let's all take a moment today to remember the legacy of a man who never gave up on his dreams, and always let love be his guide. Read more...

Etsy Find: DIY Honey Jar Favors

January 15th 2014

Here's a sweet DIY wedding favor idea: fill these positively adorable jars with the best local honey around (buying it in bulk will be more cost effective), and then tie off with the customizable fabric, baker's twine and personalized "meant to bee" tags that best match your wedding color palette. To give your tablescape extra depth, talk to your local bee farmer about the different kinds of honey available...often the colors change from season to season, which makes for a pretty play on honey hues!   Read more...
