Signature Style with Garnet Hill

My signature style in regards to my own home? I was recently asked this question by the folks at Garnet Hill. Simply put, my signature style is traditional with a modern flair. It’s always functional (the organizer in me!). I too am drawn to classical, timeless looks.

The design of my own bath showcases my signature style. I’m loving my new Signature Towels by Garnet Hill (now on sale… so don’t delay!). Monogrammed towels are the best and these are timeless. Just what I was trying to achieve.

Fabulous Hostess Gift Ideas for 2013

disclosure: This post contains an affiliate links, which means Simplified Bee receives commission if you make a purchase using this link.

As we move into November (can hardly believe it!), our minds quickly shift from spiders, cobwebs and witches to turkey dinner, holiday parties and hanging the stockings with care. Like many of you, the holiday season means large family dinners and cocktail parties with friends. If you’ll be heading to a Thanksgiving feast, Christmas party or holiday open house  in the next few weeks, bringing a thoughtful host or hostess gift is always appreciated. A favorite bottle of wine, homemade baked goods or a lovely bouquet of flowers are tried and true hostess gifts and will certainly be well received. However, if you are running short on time or want to bring something a little different, here are my favorite hostess gift ideas for 2013:

top to bottom:

pom pom throw (unexpected, yet always a winner) // wine tote (for the host’s fave bottle of champagne or wine)

 monogrammed cheese board (for the entertainer)

 personalized stationary (always well received) //holiday cupcakes (adorable right?!)

anchor bottle opener (for the cocktail party) // dried pomegranate wreath (great alternative to a traditional bouquet)

monogrammed drink coasters (for the host or hostess that has it all)

elephant place-card holders (love & a sneak peek from Nate Berkus’ Holiday Collection for Target due in stores 11/17)

What’s your favorite hostess gift?

GIVEAWAY :: Personalized + Durable Labels by KiDECALS

With summer camps just around the corner, it’s time to start labeling sweaters, backpacks and water bottles. But, I didn’t want to use just any old label. That’s why when the folks at KiDECALS asked if I wanted to try their personalized, durable labels, I jumped at the chance! I selected a fun, colorful chevron pattern and personalized it with our family name & email. This way if items get passed down to other kids in the family, the label doesn’t need to change.

With 80+ delightful designs to personalize, there is bound to be a style for everyone! KiDECALS also offers so much more including allergy alert labels (perfect for school lunches), keyboard stickers (fun for teens and to brighten up your laptop!) and chalkboard labels (great for kitchen & playrooms).
