Oh happy day! Kick your gift giving into high gear with 20% off all purchases through Monday! Just use code MANYTHANKS at checkout right after you’ve entered payment info. Above are a few of our best sellers but don’t forget to check out the acrylic stapler every girl will want in her stocking, the brand new Amy Stone Instagram prints, and a very colorful assortment of throw pillows for the girl who just moved or, ahem, can’t stop redecorating. This is one of only three sales we do the entire year so it’s a great time to stock up on gifts before the holidays and pick up something cute for y-o-u! Have fun shopping and don’t forget to Instagram what you buy for a chance to be regrammed to 64,000+ peeps!


Is it just me or does Shopbop usually not offer a promo code for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc.?! In any event, I was beyond stoked to see a promo code when I checked their site this morning (part of my everyday ritual…). I will be buying a new wardrobe for Saint Martin picking up quite a few things! Let’s just say this will fall under the “one for you, two for me” category. Stay tuned for more Black Friday deals throughout the week, including one for Design Darling that starts tomorrow!

A few of my favorite picks? Don’t miss the book section (my favorite gift to give when I’m totally stumped), Converse kicks (because every girl needs at least one pair), and this navy faux fur vest (because, duh). Use code GOBIG14 to save 15% on $250+, 20% on $500+, and 25% on $1,000+. Then come back here and let me know what you scored because we all love a good deal.


I always struggle with what to give my mom for Christmas. (Last year, we did this!) I’m still not sure what I’m going to do this year (and I couldn’t share anyway because my whole family reads the blog ;)) but I like the idea of giving her a couple little luxuries that she wouldn’t buy for herself: a cozy cashmere sweater, a new watch, or a special piece of jewelry. My top twenty picks, right this way:

what to give your mom for christmas

one (only $22!)  //  two  //  three  //  four

five  //  six (add a monogram!)  //  seven  //  eight (don’t you wish you had her green thumb?)

nine  //  ten  //  eleven  //  twelve (my mom’s favorite brand)

thirteen  //  fourteen  //  fifteen  //  sixteen

seventeen  //  eighteen  //  nineteen  //  twenty

Have you ever walked into a retail store and wished that you could make your home look just like that? I’ve long admired the Kate Spade gallery wall look in their stores and the playful mix of illustrations and photographs. When I learned that Kate Spade art prints were for sale on their website and was asked to style a few of them in my apartment, I could hardly say yes fast enough. Styled side-by-side with a few of my favorite prints from Design Darling, my gallery wall is looking cheerier than ever!

Will and I are headed to Dallas to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family and I can’t wait! It will be my first time flying with Rory so getting there should be an adventure in and of itself. ;) This will be my longest trip to Dallas yet and I’m looking forward to having a few free days to get to know Will’s hometown better. Since you’ve all been so helpful in the past with recommendations for Austin and Atlanta, I would LOVE any tips you have about where to eat, shop, explore etc. in Dallas!

P.S. I’ll still be posting every day this week — stay tuned for a Design Darling promo code starting Wednesday as well as my favorite sale finds on Black Friday!
