Christmas is a exactly week away and I, for one, am busy trying to tie up loose ends. While the major gifts have been purchased, they still need to be wrapped, the last of my Christmas cards still need to be sent and I have to figure out what to put in my husband’s stocking.
He filled mine to the brim with thoughtful and useful gifts last year and while his was nothing to scoff at, I am determined to get a little more creative this year. Just in case you are in the same predicament trying to fill your loved ones stocking, I thought I would share some of my brainstorming and some of his stocking-filling genius with you.
Splurge a little here and skip the CVS brand lip lube. Spring for something a little more luxurious such as a name brand lip moisturizer, tint or exfoliant.
Whether it’s nuts, chips, dried fruit or candy, the recipient will be tickled pink that you took notice.
A box of tea, bag of coffee or tin of hot cocoa is season-appropriate and comforting.
Favorite Breath Freshener
A supply of your giftee’s favorite gum or mints will not only keep their breath fresh, but it will save them a trip or two to the local drug or corner store.
Hair ties, hair clips, workout headbands and hats all qualify here.
Whether it’s an album or a personally crafted mix, music is always a crowd-pleaser.
Fresh undies are always a treat, whether they are a tried-and-true favorite or something new. (Give Adea’s thongs, boyshorts and panties a try! They are sure to please!)
You know the places that they frequent, so give them a little bit of free money to spend!
Perhaps your loved one loves to cook, craft or tackle home improvements. If so, chances are that there is a tool or gadget that they have been lusting after.
Give a fun design like leopard print or camouflage or a luxurious fabric like cashmere or angora. Their warm toes will thank you all winter long!
Perhaps your loved one’s favorite author has a new book out or their favorite series has another addition. Or, just maybe, there is a how-to book or “fill-in-the-blank” for Dummies edition that will give your giftee the guidance they need to tackle a project in the New Year.
Include the current edition of the magazine in the stocking with a note about the subscription and watch faces light up at the thought of a gift every month for the next year!
Accessories for Tech Gadgets
Whether it’s a case, a new set of earphones, an armband or a decorative charm, these sorts of add-ons are always appreciated.
Hopefully this exercise has helped you as much as it has helped me!! Best of luck over the next week! Happy Holidays!

Now, let’s take a close look at what is one of the most important features of the Marmont. The short answer is: PRIVACY. The hotel never publicly discusses its famous guests or reveals the names of those currently staying there. In other words: zippered lips are stage center.
When the first Monday in May rolls around, all eyes in the fashion world look to The Met. That is when New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts its fundraising gala for its Costume Institute. The gala's theme coincides with that year's fashion exhibit, which runs for a limited time. This year, the theme is "Notes on 'Camp'". Here's a brief description of that theme, courtesy of The Met.
For this week’s blog, and the next, I read three books about the famous Chateau Marmont Hotel, located at 8221 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. All three books, (that I will list at the end of next week’s blog) were written at different times. This means the information goes from 1929 when the Marmont opened to the present day. Some things may have changed – but not many.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
