Gift Basket Idea: Chamomile + Cashmere

chamomileandcashmere

I love giving (and receiving) gift baskets. While pre-packaged baskets can take a little stress out of shopping, I think that putting together a personalized package is so much more special and sentimental. Plus, it's a lot of fun to curate a basket of goodies for a friend, roommate, significant other, or family member. (And the gift recipient can also use the basket or box as they please, too!) Between now and the holiday season, I'll be whipping up some 5-item gift basket ideas to give you some inspiration and ideas. 

This Chamomile + Cashmere gift basket idea is all about comfort and coziness. It's perfect for your girlfriend, roommate, sister, or any female family member. The item that originally inspired me to put this basket together is the Burt's Bees Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream. My sister gave me this in Burt's Bees package she put together for me. (Great minds think alike!) I love it – the refreshing fragrance, the tingly clean feeling it leaves on my face, and the fact that it doesn't bother my super sensitive skin.

The next item in the basket is the Hidden Fox mug from Uncommon Goods. Nice and large for an indulgent cup of tea or coffee, a cute little fox appears at the bottom as you sip on your warm beverage. And the scalloped edges are simply adorable. A cute cup can't go without a tasty tea, like Bigelow Cozy Chamomile Herbal Tea. 

To compliment the coziness, I'd also throw in the Chamomile Lavender candle from Calypso St. Barth (because one can never have too many nice smelling candles!) and the coziest, softest pair of cashmere socks I could find. All packed into a sweet, simple white basket from Ikea, this gift basket is a box full of comfort. And the basket would be perfectly suited to store magazines, beauty products, or office supplies.

What "comfort items" would you love to receive in a gift basket?

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
