I basically live in Outdoor Voices every afternoon into evening. The Tech Sweat Leggings are ideal for working out or running errands (and covers a multitude of sins).

Om Alone Lingua Franca Sweater

Lingua Franca collaborated with Goop to make some amazing cashmere sweaters. The stitching and phrases set them apart. If you are in Dallas be sure to check out Forty Five Ten  who has them in so many fun phrases.

JK Chocolate Microchip Cookies

THESE ARE SERIOUSLY THE BEST COOKIES EVER- JK Chocolate Microchip Cookies. They are the size of a penny (so zero guilt)  and packed with flavor. They are based in Dallas, but just now became available on Amazon. The best gift EVER and you can thank me later (preferably by sending me some).


I include August Morgan cocktail napkins every year for a reason. They make the best gifts and are beautifully packaged, so wrapping isn’t even necessary!

Mark and Graham Acryllic Serving Trays

Mark & Graham Acrylic serving trays make for a very nice and versatile gift. I love the round one.

Fellow Kettle

This Fellow Stagg Pour-Over Kettle sure beats the standard ones you see at big retailers. It is sleek in style and is equipped with precise technology for your flow rate and to achieve the perfect temperature.


Gardenuity allows you to send fresh herbs in chic bamboo planters.

Juliska Cork Candlestick Holder. For $39, a set of these would make a beautiful gift.

The Bigger Carry-On from Away. It has a charger built right in and ample space to pack. Very durable too. Mine (with my monogram ) is pictured above.

For those who always ask- the shoes are Christian Dior and I love them because “CD” are also my initials. They are pricey, but I will link them anyway…. Christian Dior Sneakers

Parker Thatch DuffleThis Parker Thatch Duffle is perfectly stylish. The brand does very intriguing monograms on fresh styles.


I really believe that Bomba’s are the best socks. These socks would be great to travel into colder weather.

Cuyana Cape

Cuyana Alpaca Cape is totally yummy to travel in. Looking that chic deserves an upgrade.

I love the new Garrett Leight Store on Knox in Dallas, and I love their sunglasses even more. Pictured trying some on with my friend who may be slightly annoyed I posted this without asking…love ya, mean it.

Donald The Book

I love Donald Robertson’s new book featuring his incredible drawings and work throughout.


Dippin Dot Squared by Kristi Kohut. I love the colors and design of this so much. Nothing like abstract art mixed with antique pieces.

Midecom Milkboy Toy

The MilkBoy It Bear available on BAIT. How cool would this look on a bookshelf? It can double as a toy, but it is more art to me…


Ogee Sculpted Lip Oil

I don’t leave the house without my Ogee Sculpted Lip Oil. All clean, and totally lovely.

Drunk Elephant Baby Facial Mask

Drunk Elephant’s T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask leaves your skin looking like you just got a facial. It is my Sunday night go to.

Beauty Bioscience GloPRO. This is one of the hottest gifts right now. Microneedle your face to perfection.

 Vitners Daughter

Vitner’s Daughter  I can’t brag about this enough. It may be pricey, but I swear it is a skin game changer  (dry/oily/acne- it solves it al)


My nightly routine isn’t complete without a bath. Olverum Bath Oil has been around for generations. It is all natural (truly) and smells divine.

Magnetic Eye Lash extentions

One Two Magnetic Eye Lashes. Eye lash boutiques are popping everywhere, but it is a long and pricey process. This beats the stick-on glue and provides an easy alternative for long lashes.
