Absolut Elyx Copper Mule Cups (Set of 2), $79
I’m a big fan of Moscow Mules, and whenever I get served one at a restaurant and it doesn’t come in a copper cup, I get a little sad. These damask embossed copper cups by Absolut Elyx are the prettiest Mule cups I’ve ever seen! And of course, you don’t just have to drink Moscow Mules out of them. Any beverage is infinitely better in these fancy cups.
Soft & Cozy Pom Pom Throw Blanket, $56 at Apollo Box
There’s something about pom poms that just makes me happy. I’m always drawn to them for some reason! So no surprise that I am in love with this cozy cotton throw with giant, joyful pom poms. This looks like the perfect blanket to toss over my couch and then cuddle up under during a good old-fashioned Netflix binge. Also, sidenote, blankets make the best gift. EVERYBODY needs an extra pretty throw blanket, and I feel like people don’t give them as hostess gifts as often as they do wine or a candle. A crowd-pleaser, but also super unique.
Emily and Fin Pleaded Midi Martini Dress, $130
How fun is this martini dress? Drinks are on me, literally!
Le Metier de Beaute After Glow Blush, $50
There’s nothing I love more than a twofer. You know, a twofer — two bomb-ass products in one. That’s why I love Le Metier de Beaute’s “After Glow Blush.” It’s a blush and a highlighter, so I don’t have to bother with two separate compacts. I love-love this formula because it gives me the perfect rosy flush AND a natural glow. And it stayed on all day — from the crack of dawn to well after dinner and drinks. I didn’t reapply once!
“Dresses to Dream About” by Christian Siriano, $34.18
If you love pouring over jaw-droppingly gorgeous dresses, then this is the book for you and your coffee table. Christian Siriano was one of the first Fashion Week shows I ever covered as a young fashion reporter in New York City, and so I have a soft spot for the designer and his impeccable gowns. I’m going to stock up on this book to give as gifts to all my clothes horse friends (and keep one for myself, natch).
Rebecca Minkoff New York Sweatshirt, $88
I moved to LA from New York, and while I love my California life, there are days when I find a crumpled metro card in my purse and I get wistful. This sweatshirt is perfect for those days.
