12 DAYS ‘TILL CHRISTMAS: STOCKING STUFFER #3

We are absolutely dying for this next stocking stuffer. Lana Del Rey’s CD, titled ‘Born to Die’ is our go-to for any social event or mood. It is a sexy, sultry throwback to old Hollywood, combined with a rough, unexpected edge that makes it irresistible. We absolutely adore Lana and all she stands for. This gift is a no-brainer.

Guide to Writing Holiday Cards

BN_HolidayCards

It’s that time of year again – it is time to mail out those holiday cards. And yes, its true – we haven’t sent out ours yet either. Writing holiday cards can be difficult, and time consuming – so we’ve put together 5 tips to make the whole process easier. We’ve got writing the perfect card down to a science xx 

5 TIPS FOR WRITING THE PERFECT HOLIDAY CARD

  1. Make a list of everyone you are going to send one to before you start writing – this makes sure you won’t forget anyone
  2. If you know the person well, write a personal message
  3. If you are not familiar with the person, keep the holiday greeting generic using phrases such as “Happy Holidays” or ‘Season’s Greetings’
  4. One card per household – this can be tricky when sending cards to friends whose families you know well
  5. Keep your message short and sweetit’s the thought that counts!
