Reminder: Free Great.ly Shipping!

Just a friendly reminder in case you missed this post last week, but I've teamed up with Great.ly to offer free shipping on my "For The Home" boutique through Tuesday, September 23 at midnight EST. (Yippee!)

You could score something like...

or even...

I'm considering these Turkish towels – I've been dying to try them!

You could always pick up a new bag or some jewelry, though you'll have to pay shipping for those guys (sorry!). Which piece would you get?


Hello, Great.ly!

One of my favorite things about my job is scouting for independent artists and designers. I try to buy from small businesses as much as I can, not to mention include them in my writing.

This was one of the reasons I was so happy to discover Great.ly – a platform for independent designers to showcase their work and for "tastemakers" to curate that work into online boutiques. Think Etsy meets KEEP meets Pinterest.

I spent some time a few weekends back working on my boutique, and I'm pleased as punch to show off a few of my favorite finds with you lovely folks today:

It's important to note that while all of the pieces are sold by independent designers, many (if not all) are also completely handmade, making them that much more unique and special. Now the only trick is to stop myself from buying everything in my own boutique.
