Double Trouble

Posted on May 15th, by Melanie
A good friend of mine is soon to become the mom of twins-one boy, one girl. My oh-so creative friend at a great blog called the Party Dress put together the most darling idea for a twin shower! With all this twin talk, I was inspired to write about great gifts for twins. I did some research and I found REALLY cute things. Here are some of my favorites. You can find all of my picks on Etsy!

Designer ChickyBird makes the most cozy and warm baby hats with earflaps. I purchased one last winter and it was the best investment I made. My little guy was born in September, so he needed a little hat all winter long. Plus, there is nothing cuter than a baby in an earflap hat…even if it’s just for a photo-op! They can be customized by color and the hat is available without ties. One in pink and one in blue would be perfect for the twins.Continue Reading

Sun-Goddess Style

Posted on May 11th, by Melanie

I am without a doubt a sun-goddess. I prefer a beach vacation over sight-seeing, I can lay for hours soaking up the sun, and I love nothing more than a perfect bronze tan during summer. Now that I am a mom, my sun time has definitely decreased. But, I have not given up my stylish pool attire. I love a great cover-up, and I have been known to match my towel to my swimsuit of the season. I found some great items that will make you feel wonderful even though you will be coated in sand, Popsicles and sweaty kids all summer long…

A couple of years ago, Rachel Zoe and her husband Rodger did a feature of their home in Vogue. I distinctly remember a shot of them lounging by their pool on gorgeous Missoni towels. Since then, I have been obsessed with Missoni linens. Made of super soft Terry, and using their distinct zig zag-pattern and vibrant colors, Missoni has taken the beach towel to the next level.… Continue Reading

My Jewelry Obsession-Early Jewelry

Posted on May 7th, by Melanie

You know when you find something so beautiful, unique and special and you just HAVE TO HAVE IT?! that is the way I feel about Early Jewelry. Lawrence, Kansas based designer, Kylie Grater takes her rural upbringing, combined with worldy travels to create her one of a kind pieces.

I was so excited to see her full-line on display at my hair salon, The Darling Room during First Friday in downtown Kansas City. I didn’t purchase anything because I was so overwhelmed, I saw way too many things that I just fell in love with. She combines really interesting elements to make up her necklaces. I was coveting a long chain made of leather and silver with a feather and a stone that hung from it. I really should have purchased it then because her pieces cannot be duplicated, so once it is sold, it is gone! I also adore her rings, which are made of vintage cufflinks.Continue Reading
