A. Sorry I’m Late Tee B. Classic Pajamas C. Copper Chairs D. Plenty by Ottolenghi E. Fiddle Fig Leaf Trees F. Copper Watering Can G. Mason Pearson Brush H. BKR Water Bottle I. Converse All Stars J. Bando Ostrich Pouf K.Wooden Tooth Brush Holder

    Honestly, I’m skipping the adult gifts this year. I have all I want. We’re very lucky.

    These are such sad, sad, sorrowful days. This holiday we’re hoping for some silence and reflection and, let’s hope, a little renewal.

    For the kids of course – the show will go on

    I really like those copper chairs! They would be an easy way to spice up any room! I hope Santa is good to you this year! :)

    Oh, and I asked Santa for a new DSLR camera.. Hopefully he pulls through!

    I’m trying to think of a kind way to say this, but $140 for a hairbrush? $85 for a pair of pajamas? I recognize you value quality and endurance over quantity and price, but these requests seem a bit … well, not simple and certainly not realistic for the average shopper. I enjoy your blog and can tell you are a lovely person, but I’m beginning to feel priced out of your posts.

    I used to be a Chuck Taylor enthusiast until Nike bought out Converse. Then I found out they are made in sweatshops and I will never buy another pair! I know that most other brands are also guilty, but Nike is a consumer giant and they ought to be setting a better example. They have the means to influence the entire apparel retail industry.

    Plenty is my bible. Every recipe I have made in there has been a knockout, without fail! Its a must-have! The recipes are very approachable, and the photography is beautiful and honest. You will love it!

    Question: Do the chairs come with Neosporin? For thigh cuts?

    I bought the sephora knock off of the mason Pearson and its fine but when I brush my hair I dream of splurging on the real deal one day. I love your list!

    I have a MP brush and I love it! But you really have to know what type of bristle is the best for your hair so read up before the purchase (since it costs a pretty penny).
