I am loving candy canes in any way shape or form right now. Candy stripes on linen, candy canes to eat, drink, as decor, as a topping. I’ll take my candy canes any way I can get them.
I think buying for my husband is the hardest thing. He is so particular and men’s gadgets are so much more expensive than women’s. I can’t pick him up a pretty little scarf and have him be thrilled. Here are my best ideas for the men in your life. Got any ideas of your own to add?
Not’s Your Dad’s Tie – I know a tie is so generic but this Fair Isle knit tie is so not the generic dad tie! Any dad (or not dad) would look hot in this.
Drink in Style – Jack Spade Repp Stripe Thermos
Keep Cozy – Ben Sherman Plectrum Flat Cap
Whisk him away – Filson Small Duffel Bag
Keep Time – Natural Wooden Watch from Red Envelope

- I LOVE tights. Tights might be my favorite thing. Ok well, probably not but I do love tights. A note on tights. You are never too old for tights! You are always too young for panty hose. Throw away your panty hose, get some cute tights. I’ll get off my soap box now.
I love Easter, it is all candy and pastel colors and springy flowers, how could you not love that? I’m super excited to take my new baby girl home for the first time to be with our families for Easter so I’ve got the holiday on the brain and how we can make it beautiful!
Enjoy a green cocktail for me this St. Patrick’s Day! I think these alternatives to green beer look like an awesome way to celebrate.

Lucky Leprechaun Cocktail
Enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day and be safe!
