It’s Christmastime: treat yo self! Or rather, take care of yourself. The holidays are magical, yes, but they are also a time of go-go-go, which makes it incredibly easy to burn out/wipe out/collapse/pick your poison. In between endless errands, holiday parties, travel and whatever else you’ve got going on, remember to take a moment (or more) for yourself this holiday season. Here are 5 simple ways to do it:
H&M sees your Domnhall Gleeson and Sienna Miller, Burberry, and raises you Wes Anderson and Adrien Brody.
No but seriously, H&M x Wes Anderson is the collaboration I didn’t know I needed in my life until it actually happened. It’s a tad unexpected, but entirely Wes Anderson and very, very charming. If only all delayed travel during the holidays were this festive.
Bonus: if you also harbor a secret fantasy of living inside a Wes Anderson movie, it’s just become slightly more affordable thanks to H&M’s Christmas collection. I suppose, when you think about it, it makes sense that the symmetry and design-obsessed director would be a fan of the Swedish retailer. Watch the video below — it’s probably best enjoyed with a “chocolate flavored hot beverage with whipped topping”:
Every once in awhile, I come across a home tour that I not only admire, but would actually 100% move into tomorrow, given the chance. Blogger Stephanie Sterjovski and her husband Neal’s condo is just one of those spaces. It doesn’t hurt that they worked with one of my favorite designers to style the space, Jacquelyn Clark of Lark & Linen.
Stephanie told Domino that their goal “was to create a space that relied heavily on a neutral palette with minimalism in mind” — between that and the combination of cool tones and layered textures, it’s no wonder I love this space.
Look, I love shopping, but holy moly all the steals + deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday can get super overwhelming. I don’t know where to start! I want it all…but what do I need (if anything)?! Also, let’s be real: why bother elbowing cranky strangers in-stores when we live in a glorious internet era where you can snag these deals + steals from the comfort of your own bed/couch, then hop along and binge watch Gilmore Girls which is the true best thing about this weekend anyway, right?
So, in the interest of organizing my thoughts, prioritizing needs wants + just making it all easier to digest, I’ve listed out some of the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales below — plus a bonus list of stuff sitting in my cart right now!
It’s easy to get caught up in the busy and the stress of the holiday season — even among parties and gifts and happiness, it’s definitely a stressful time of year. And, not to go full cheeseball on you, but it’s important and helpful to take a step back and consider all the good shit in your life. Plus, tomorrow is Thanksgiving, which is literally a perfect time to do so.
