Happy Thanksgiving!

The turkey is in the oven, the parade is on and I’m counting down the hours till I can pour my first glass of Chardonnay and get kicked out of the kitchen. If you’re anything like me today is the first of many hosted events that the holiday season will bring. From wine-filled soirees to ugly sweater parties (here’s a few ideas) I never want to show up empty handed. Simple and thoughtful gifts such as a Henri Bendel white spruce candle or a fun wine bottle opener are great party gifts! Also the not to miss William Sonoma Hot Chocolate are holiday tastes to die for.

On top of gifts for the party hosts – I found a few picks for those that love to entertain, moms, aunts, friends, sisters, brothers and Dad’s. Anyone that likes to put on the dog really. For a bit more tailored countertop William Sonoma has sets with mixed metals such as they Copper collection. I’m loving their Copper Rim Barware Collection which can also double as a great set for Dad, brother or boyfriend.

REMEMBER TO CHECK BACK TOMORROW – Black Friday sales are here! If you’re planning on doing a bit of shopping bookmark your favorites today and check back here tomorrow for MAJOR sales – they are really good this year people! I mean +40% off + free shipping good!) For more gift ideas check out the PRBlonde Holiday Shop here!

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month – My Sun Story

The sun is shining and I guess you could say I’m the whitest girl at the party.

NMS_1868

My recent trip to Palm Springs came with a few things – warm temps, a five-star resort and some hot hot sun! As a total sun baby you can bet that the swimsuit was packed and I was on a mission to catch some serious rays to defray my Casper status. Hey, it may work for the Olsen twins… but not me. (more…)

2015 Gift Guide: The Xmas Insta – Under $100

Three days people!

If you’re anything like me – you’re in full Xmas morning prep mode. Christmas Eve, we’ll leave that to a “Martha Stewart” duel-off between the moms and aunts. I may not speak in “chargers and napkin rings” but I do speak “PJ’s and cranberry mimosas!”

2015 Gift Guide: For The Jetsetter

Can we just talk about vacations and warm places a little longer? Please?

My “office” is now back at a desk instead of a beach and while it’s not the worst thing that I’m donning flannel again, the only thing getting me through is another trip coming up in February. I’ll share details soon but it’s for sure likely to be a bit more relaxing.

2015 GIFT GUIDE: For Him

So we’ll start with a story. I had my wallet stolen last week and its just as annoying as you would think. I’m still bitter about it. While I got plenty of sad emoji’s from girlfriends and a few that were willing to buy me a glass of wine to ease my troubles, I had a feeling taking me out for a pity dinner vs. buying new booties wasn’t going to go my way.

Living Proof – Taking Care of My $ Maker

One of the things I superficially love about myself is my hair. After all, for the past three years its been a bit of a “money maker.” (humble brag – which apparently is no longer a thing). So when I am able to set aside a little P.I.T. (Personal Improvement Time) a good hair treatment always makes it into the line-up aside from the quick post gym wash or the 10 minute quick hair dry that I seem to always be tugging through.

FullSizeRender (1)

Two  weekends ago (I know time flies in NYC!) I got to indulge in a bit of that P.I.T. time when I took a one night staycation at the Park Lane. A gorgeous hotel with beautiful views of Central Park, the trees blooming and the champagne flowing – it was the perfect girls getaway with my Mom that couldn’t be beat. (more…)

#PRBGIFTGUIDE – Entertainment Maven

There’s nothing like starting Thanksgiving off with some holiday cheer. Mine usually comes in the form of a glass of red wine or a hot toddy as my mom and I scramble to figure out what to bring to the obligatory family parties that commence right after stuffing the turkey. Thanksgiving in our house is always interesting. There’s a lot of family, a lot of opinions, several empty wine bottles and a few games and jokes to keep the mood light. To the naked “non-decked” eye it’s a clust- f#ck for sure. However the holidays wouldn’t be the holidays if it didn’t start with our Thanksgiving palooza. (For those that know me well – you have heard the storiesI).

GIFTS FOR THE HOLIDAY HOSTESS:

 

But a festive Thanksgiving still comes with my mom minding her P’s and Q’s (minus the wine intake) and that always comes with a hostess gift – with a lot thought and a little personalization. You can’t put a price on a well picked out candle – like this ‘Champagne’ Pop from Jonathan Adler (20% off with code: BLACKFRIDAY) or these festive guest towels from Mark & Graham. She has also always been a fan of keeping cozy & warm (just like yesterdays outfit) and give a cozy blanket like this Kennebunk Chelan Throw (40% off at Nordstrom) that you can curl up and watch football or christmas movies! Count me in! 

///

Wishing you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving Holiday and on Friday – get ready! The #PRBGG Shop is coming! Just in time for Cyber Monday. <– See what I did there?

xx, LP/PRB
