Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day with Papyrus!

Valentine’s Day is not only for your significant other! Now you can celebrate with your bests for Galentine’s Day! And as always, the only place I get my cards and wrapping is from my all time favorite, Papyrus!!!

There is no secret Papyrus is my favorite and only place that I get cards for every occasion, but I definitely love their special occasion cards! Of course who doesn’t love flowers and hearts, but that’s not all Valentine’s Day is about. Papyrus gives an opportunity to truly embrace and appreciate real gestures of love through the thoughtfulness of a beautiful and unique message written from your heart!!

It’s crazy to think that there are 180 million Valentine’s Day cards sent annually as it’s the second largest card sending holiday!! There are 173 cards in the Valentine’s Day collection this year, and over 30 new designs! These are some of my absolute favorites from the collection!!

The details that Papyrus employs in their cards are just amazing. They add so much through these unique designs and meticulous details in every card. How cute is the sushi card? I’m just obsessed with them all!

Apart from cards, Papyrus also has the perfect giftwrap products. They use the same kid of details with all their products so it carries over to their gift bags, tissue paper, bows, and ribbons!

I just love sweet treats, so these were the perfect Valentine’s Day small goodie bags to put some candy in for my friends! I love to make each gift a little different, so I love alternating different tissue paper to personalize each one!

This is probably my favorite card. And just really shows how special their cards are. Papyrus puts so much thought into each card – you can’t find these kinds of designs anywhere else! Cards are always my favorite part of the gift because of the keepsake quality of it.  You know that each card was specifically picked for the person. There’s nothing I love more then a gift topped with the perfect Papyrus card!

Cheers! Happy Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day to you all! Hope you all have the most special day!

Holiday Entertaining with Papyrus!

Everyone knows Papyrus is the only place I buy cards, so imagine my excitement when I heard that Papyrus was launching an entertainment collection just in time for the holidays! I’ve always loved Papyrus’s cards because of the unique designs and meticulous craftsmanship in each and every design, and I was thrilled to see that the Papyrus Entertainment Collection is no different.

I recently held a small get together at my apartment for the holidays, and the decorations I got from the Papyrus Entertainment Collection were the perfect details to highlight my snacks and gifts! Take a peek at how I entertained with Papyrus!

I was beyond happy with how everything turned out! It was so easy to create a fun and festive atmosphere when you start out with great decorations. I was so impressed with all of the handmade details that Papyrus is known for in all of the decorations. The details are what got me obsessed with the cards in the first place, and now I’m just as obsessed with their entertainment collection!

I just love the pom pom banner – it was so easy to decorate and transform my bar cart (I just taped it!).

Who doesn't love presents? The perfect present deserves the perfect wrapping, and these bags and tags are so perfect for the gifts I plan on giving to my friends and family this year!

The food is everyone’s favorite part of the holidays, and I accented everything with these adorable plates and napkins, which add the perfect festive touch to my desserts! The pom pom banner was also a great decoration piece for the table!

Shhh Silk is a luxurious Australian beauty label, with a global following. They are dedicated to producing 100% pure silk pillowcases and silk sleeping caps. Shhh silk is the answer to that beauty secret you have been searching for!

"There is nothing we value more than our beauty sleep and the Shhh Silk philosophy reflects just that, we aim to enhance your daily beauty routine and ensure you not only get the most luxe nights sleep, but also experience the many health benefits that silk has to offer as you do so."

"With a multitude of health and beauty benefits, Shhh Silk pillowcases hydrate your skin whilst you sleep unlike cotton, which draws moisture from your skin leaving unwanted bed creases on your face. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic which makes it suitable for all skin types. Unlike cotton, which creates friction between your hair and the pillowcase, Shhh Silk is smooth so your hair can easily glide preventing split ends and hair breakage. Using one of our pillowcases and sleeping caps after a blow wave or curling your hair will ensure you wake up every day with perfect bed hair!"

I am seriously obsessed with these beautiful silk pillowcases and Lylah loves them too! Seriously amazing. Shop more here! You need one.

My Hungrack!

Since starting my blog, I have been meaning to create an interior section of my blog to feature furniture items that truly inspire me and compliment my lifestyle. As the first post to this section I am excited to say I recently came across the perfect ‘first’ post. The product is called, Hungrack. Hungrack is a modern day clothing rack designed for individuals who are passionate about life and desire to look their best every day.

Collection2_grande  Collection1_grande

What intrigues me about Hungrack is how easy it makes the staging process for one’s daily outfit look so organized.

HomePage1.1_grandeHomePage2_grandeHomePage6.2_grandeunnamed

Also, one of the coolest features of the rack is that it allows for display customization by giving the user the ability to move the wood plates around without feeling constricted to a set rack design. I can really see this rack utilized in a bedroom as an extension of your closet or even a furniture piece in your living room as a throw rack for blankets.

I recently spoke to the founders of the company, twins Akash & Amit Niranjan and their sister Nina Niranjan Russo in Seattle. They explained their mission is to create lifestyle products that simplify the process of getting ready. Their signature piece is Hungrack because it serves as the central foundation for the styling process to begin. I can totally see how useful this rack will be in my home, especially when I prepare my look for the next day, the night before. When talking to Amit by phone this week he explained to me that,

“Like a canvas is for an artist’s paint brush, Hungrack is for your daily look or your prized possessions. We have noticed that some of our early customers use the rack not just for clothes, but a place to hang the things that motivate and excite them the most like the keys to their new Tesla or a favorite football jersey on gameday. We are trying to raise peoples standards, give them a space to showcase who they plan to be for the day, and make them more efficient with their morning routine. Why place your clothes on the floor, couch, or bed anymore when Hungrack provides the space to do it so much better.”

The rack is well worth the money spent for something you can use every day and will last you forever. Why throw your designer pieces in the back of your closet when you now have a place to display them on your Hungrack. Also, it is pretty cool that everything is Made in America and designed as luxury furniture you can proudly showcase in your home."

I just ordered my Hungrack collection, which will ship out in early March 2016.
