If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know how much I loathe obligatory gift buying seasons. While I prefer to sprinkle gifts throughout the year for my loved ones or take them out for fun experiences, this year I've got to keep a pretty tight holiday budget now that I'm a proud auntie to five beautiful nieces and nephews and the coolest little brother and sister. With the help of Black Friday's sales and the nifty Keep.com app (realllllly love this app), I am almost done and it wasn't so painful after all!
hope your thanksgiving celebration was filled with yumminess! my sister (top food inspiration since I was a kid) outdid herself per usual. she served an incredible untraditional yet balanced lunch a la thanksgivingnakkuh. we had 24-hour smoked pastrami, sous vide, deep fried turkey neck, shaved brussel sprouts salad, squash casserole and a buffet of four delicious pies! i am stuffed to the brim.
i know y'all are probably plotting the black friday and cyber monday strategies but wanted to invite you to join me in supporting our local businesses for small business saturday where ever you are! i'll be helping out at homestead this saturday from 1-6PM. julia and rob do an incredible job sourcing the highest quality products for their store like the pomme frites candles and loomed nola textiles. i cannot wait to discover more and begin my holiday shopping here. as a thank you for supporting their small business, the duo are gifting all shoppers with crescent confections' homemade caramels, made with the finest pink himalayan sea salts. yum! stop by to shop and say hello! you can also follow our instagrams @homesteadnola and @juleytl for updates throughout the day.
Hi there! Very excited to share with you all the grand opening of Tiffany & Co. is right around the corner - this Wednesday, November 27th. Perfect time to drop hints to the boys, no? (teehee) Tiffany & Co. needs no introduction so I'll get right to the point. The beautiful store is right on Canal Street nestled inside One Canal Place. To celebrate its launch, they've loaned Jennifer (check out her adorable Breakfast with Tiffany's post!) and me pieces from the Atlas Collection to style. True to the brand, these modern pieces are perfect for the classic woman. I've never been very big on jewelry but found myself completely smitten over the simple yet masculine design. There will be plenty more to ogle at the opening so hope to see you all there!
