It’s that time of the year. A time to shop in person and online. And shop you must.
Recently I went to a few of my favorite stores in Los Angeles. I always want the shopping experience to be an inspiring, beautiful, comfortable pleasure (my star sign is Taurus, so go figure). The goal for holiday shopping is to keep the focus local and as small as possible. It feels good and connected to shop this way. Get to know your retail neighbors and support them!
Here are snaps and holiday suggestions from my shopping journey:
Serve sage for a clean and clear new year (not sure why it is on a dinner plate)? Is sage as a meal the new detox?
One might catch Cindy Crawford and Brian Grazer signing their (respective) books.
Cindy and me. Hanging out.
Say the Sun. Ultra chic flip flops by Jeannine Braden.
A gnome flippin’ the bird. Who doesn’t need this?
Plenty of lux beauty products.
Bow ties, socks and hats rock for guys here. As well as the iconic photograph of Mick Jagger.
Compartés - Creative, delicious and beautifully packaged chocolate. I love that this brand that started in 1950 is has had a modern update. So well done. I bought a stash for hostess gifts, holiday presents and a number larger than I care to disclose for personal enjoyment. Compartes.com

Compartés teamed with Kelly Wearstler for terrifically enticing and exciting packaging.
