Gift wrap has gotten so good lately, it kinda makes we want to wrap everything that comes in a box! I’ve always thought a beautifully wrapped gift makes the gift even more special! Here are some of my favorites that are great year round.
The new Clare V. x & Other Stories collaboration is almost here, but if you can’t wait til the release on March 5, you can order early through Steven Alan for a bunch of the pieces, and almost all are under $200! I love how many perforated pieces there are, in addition to the perfect green used throughout!

I’m still thinking about all the glamour from the Oscars this past weekend, and it had me thinking of other places to add some glitz, so of course, the eyes have it! Whether you’re going with chunky bits or some subtle smudges, adding some glitter will liven up even the most minimal of outfits.
To get this look at home, here are some products that would work well!
Thanks to the latest issue of Travel & Leisure, I just discovered this gem of a B&B right in Williamsburg Brooklyn called the Urban Cowboy B&B. Started by Lyon Porter, the rooms range from $100 to $400 a night for the cabin out back, or rent out the whole shebang for $2000/night. The townhouse has an industrial rustic charm that makes you think more Adirondacks than Brooklyn, but I can imagine its a great escape for a weekend without needing to rent a car.

Happy weekend everyone! Hope you’re all staying warm in the colder parts of the world…its been absolutely BRUTAL here in NY. By Sunday, I won’t want to leave and will probably just hunker down with some hot cocoa to watch the Oscars…I always love having some commentary over on Twitter with my girlfriends so if you want to follow along, I’ll be tweeting both @bklynbride and @bklynliving. Now for some links of note!
