These scents created by perfumer and artist Christopher Brosius are exciting and different from the usual perfume and can be used as personal or home fragrance. All scents are available as essential oils or spray and both are alcohol free.
I bought Burning Leaves ($60) which sounds strange, but reminds me of my country house with the smell of maple leaves and fires in the fireplace. I wish that Dish carried a wider selection because there are so many of these I would like to try. In the Library was also tempting, but I wish they had had Russian Caravan, Cedarwood Tea or M3 November which all sound amazing.

These hand embroidered and handwoven napkins ($18 for 4) from Pakistan are simple enough to compliment a range of styles from modern to bohemian.
What's even better is that each purchase supports snow leopard conservation and improves the livelihood of impoverished nomadic herding communities.
Mexican Hot Chocolate
A hand-carved Mexican molinillo ($14), or frother, would make a great gift packaged with bowls and some Ibarra mexican chocolate. Include a recipe for Mexican hot chocolate and some instructions for using the frother.
These latte bowls ($30 for 6) from Anthropologie come in a great palette of colors and would be great for hot chocolate.Root ($39). Based on old root tea medicinal infusions that date back to the 1700's this 80-proof liquor would be a great addition to anyone's liquor cabinet.
Serve it alone, in cocktails or even or ice cream. Comes with a history of the beverage and recipe.

Available with different trim colors and motifs these would be stunning at a summer cocktail party or even dressed down for lounging on that beach vacation.
Les Gazelles also carries shawls, bags and jewelry for a modern bohemian vibe.

The Oak black oversized tube scarf ($148) is nice and chunky. Unfortunately it's made of 100% acrylic but I still like the knit and color.
This cable knit tube scarf ($68) from Shopbop's own line of basics comes in taupe, white and black. Also 100% acrylic.

Unfortunately this great quilted bag with the Union Jack design is currently out of stock. I would probably carry it as clutch rather than use the chain strap. Will update the post if it comes back in stock.
I love this buddha ring by nOir ($88). Definitely a bold statement at about 1.25" tall. Gold metal with clear rhinestones and 1 red-rhinestone dot on his forehead. It's a fun piece of costume jewelry I would deifnitely wear.

The Vince gold metallic cashmere sweater ($295) is a sophisticated remake of this look. I love it worn belted with leggings or pencil jeans.
I think it looks best worn a bit loose and large. Available from Bloomingdales and shopbop.com.

One of the key pieces of the collection is a plaid shirt with an adjustable scarf collar ($225) shown here cinched in with a wide belt. Available from funkylala.com.
I also love the cut of the pants in this collection like these loose fitting black cropped pants that are very similar to the ones from Anthropologie I blogged about a few weeks ago.

There are a ton of options out there right now, but some are less "sequiny" than others. I like the ones that are completely saturated in sequins the best.
