Holiday Gift Guide 2014 - For Her // Simplified Bee #holidaygifts #giftguide #holiday2014

It’s true. Because the holiday season can be so hectic, I’ve already started to shop for family and friends. In fact some gifts are already wrapped! To avoid the stress that holiday shopping can bring, it’s always a good idea to get a head start.

Last week I kicked off the holiday gift guides for 2014 with a focus on hostess gifts. Today, I’ve hand-picked items I adore and that would perfect for women of all ages. From a coveted Rebecca Minkoff bag to cozy Sorel winter boots – there’s a variety of fun gift ideas ranging in price. Perhaps some of these items will end up on your own holiday wish-list too!

Getting Organized :: Stylish Desk Accessories

As we look forward to 2014, many of us are setting new year’s goals and resolutions. High on most lists is getting organized (no surprise here I’m sure!). For me I struggle with desk organization and aim to keep it more tidy this coming year. The right desk accessories are key to creating an efficient work-space, yet so many are ho-hum and aren’t pretty. That’s why I’m thrilled about teaming up with See Jane Work at Office Depot to help me create a beautiful, streamlined desk that reflects my personal style. Their collection combines fresh style and smart organization – can’t get better than that! See Jane Work’s chic office accessories come in fresh patterns and color palettes perfect for mixing and matching. I selected items in hues of blue, pink and white and love how it coordinates with the items I already owned.

Organizing Tip: Write down your list of to dos and cross them off as they are completed – prioritize them for even more efficiency! Here I’m using See Jane Work’s “To Do” sticky notepad!

Happy new year and happy organizing,

Friday Find :: Coastal Art by Swiden

With summer in full gear, the Coast Collection by Australian-based artist, Charlotte Swiden grabbed my attention.  The designs and creative techniques are influenced by Charlotte’s Swedish heritage, love of nature and childhood spent on the southern shores of Sweden (and yes, she was born with the name Swiden). Colorful, playful and reminiscent of summer days by the ocean, these linen wall hangings come in two sizes.

Like most Swedes she likes order, structure, white space and more white space.

Swiden also offers the collection as note-cards. I think these would be darling framed and hung as a series.

Happy Friday!
