Befores, afters, mood boards, plans, failures, wins. We’ve done a lot of projects, and they’re all here. 

We have a long-standing relationship with DIY, and love rolling our sleeves up and making it happen.

Whether it’s your best friend, sister, cool aunt or daily gym buddy (anyone that gets your butt to the gym every morning deserves a gift), these gifts are perfect for the women in your life this holiday season–they work for your own wish list, too. ;) I’m including the original price, but everything on this list is on sale right now which will save you a huge chunk of change.

1. Ridiculously soft slippers with a fur cuff for a little something extra. $14

2. A delicate gold choker which feels sophisticated, but on trend. $15


3. Plant Mom Cross-stitch. Because she manages to keep her plants alive way longer than you…or at least aspires to.  $20


4. Levi’s 721s. The most comfortable and flattering stretchy, high-waisted jeans (I have them in 2 colors). $100


5. A stylish fedora, so her hair won’t be weighed down by beanies this winter and because she would totally rock it. (Also available in olive and black.) $61 (plus, 50% off with code BRFIVE)


6. The best brow pencil in existence if she’s not already on that train. $21


7. A faux marble Lumee case so her selfies and snapchats are always on point–no “pretty” filter needed. $55


8. Fluffy ear muffs$14


9. Jewelry tree and vanity mirror for her nightstand or bathroom. $49


10. A mask that naturally brightens and illuminates the complexion while creating a slight warming effect and increasing circulation for healthier, more vibrant skin. She’ll GLOW. $48


11. The prettiest ear jacket earrings that she can dress up or down. $32


12. A bright patchwork clutch that’s pretty enough to carry on its own (can hold her phone too!), or put it a larger bag as a wallet and she’ll always be able to find it. $95aa90f43d06c5b41dd3c784728f7843f2

13. Tartan puffy vest $138 (40% off today!)



14. In the Company of Women. Advice from real women she’ll want to absorb and surround herself with every single day. $17  


15. A long, striped night shirt that’s loose and comfortable, and a little sexy too. (the trifecta!) $68


16. A classic plaid scarf that will go with everything. $29. 


17. An athletic pouch (okay, it’s a fanny pack) that so slim and perfect for running hands free with her phone and chapstick. $9


18. A slouchy V-neck camel-colored sweater that she’ll reach for all winter (and think of you.) $5hmprod-1

19. The best dry shampoo ever created so she can skip a hair wash and hang out with you instead. $20fd587af906c3b8e5622962eaa7b8b6fa

20. That cocoon coat that has all the best reviews, comes in 9 colors, and has been on her wish list since last year. $350 (40% off today–run!)

A reader recently asked me if I’m starting to fully embrace traditional style and whether we still consider our house to be a “modern Colonial” and why. It was a really great question and so timely — I had really just been thinking about my approach to this home and how my style has changed […]
