VALENTINES DAY GIFT GUIDE | 2017

So Valentine’s Day is upon us once again! Two fun facts about me and Valentine’s Day… one I am single, two my job takes me out of the country every year during Valentine’s Day! But I still secretly love this holiday even though I am usually too busy to celebrate it.

Still, I love to send cards and candies to my friends and family as a way to show them that I love them. Here are some of my top gifts to give (or treat your self too) this Valentines Day!

VDAY Gift Guide 2017

Heartstagram Frame | Pink Nikes | Heart Drop EarringsTory Burch Tote | Rose + Stemless Glasses | Monogram PitcherCafe Du Monde Coffee + K-Cups

I am seriously obsessed with Framebridge! I had them frame a photo of my mom and I and it turned out amazing. I love the heartstagram matting and for $39 you cannot beat the quality. Order buy Feb 8th for a Feb 13th delivery! Save $10 off your first framing by using this link.

I love the idea of gifting a small taste of the south and Cafe Du Monde is iconic. Especially to a friend that lives somewhere where they do not  know what Mardi Gras is (cough LA). I found some at my local World Market last weekend but am dying to get some K-Cups for my quicker morning fix!

How do you feel about Valentines Day? Yay or Nay?

TRAVELING FOR BUSINESS

Next week I set off to cold, snowy Berlin for my real life job. At 27 I have spent the last 4 years traveling several times a year to various countries for my job. While all this has sparked a love for travel it has also made me an expert at crossing an ocean for my job, so today I wanted to share my favorite items that get me there stylishly and professionally.

I am currently coveting this carry on from Mark & Graham. I love the structure, color and fact that this can be considered a personal item. This very well could be my next buisness traveler purchase. Big enough to tote your laptop, in air essentials kit, and a good book! I am currently still using my trusted Lo & Sons OG Bag for my carry-on or a big tote.

TRAVEL WALLET

A travel wallet is a necessity for business travel. You want to stay organized and look professional. I have had the Aspinal of London classic travel wallet for nearly 3 years and I adore it! It keeps me so organized! Alongside this you always need your business cards in a great card holder – I always turn to Kate Spade for these.

I think the biggest keys to business travel is to make sure you have everything you need to do your job. I need to have my hard drive, laptop, trip information, and chargers with me in my carryon just in case my luggage gets lost. From a personal protection stand point my jewelry always gets packed in my carry-on too. I have an older version of the Henri Bendel jewelry case but love this version as well!
