Christmas Tour: Decoratively Speaking Events

I've got a treat for you guys today! It's a Christmas tour that is definitely a feast for the eyes. When I started my holiday page on Instagram this season, I happened upon quite a few interior design pages I wasn't yet following with my KCL Instagram. One of which caught my eye with beautiful event design. As we began to near the Christmas season, I noticed this design page posting more and more Christmas decor at various businesses. Talk about a dream job...being able to decorate so many different spaces for the holidays, with many different themes and colors!

As you can imagine, the designer at Decoratively Speaking Events is bound to have beautiful Christmas decor at home as well. From the fun vintage welcome, to the beautiful formal dining room, to the plaid Mackenzie-Childs Breakfast Room; you are sure to find some festive holiday inspo. Grab a cup of coffee (or hot cocoa) and enjoy!

Valentine's Day Gift Guide for Her: French Macarons


I first fell in love with these beautiful French cookies at a boutique chocolate shop inside Rockefeller Center in New York City. Long before then I had a little obsession with how beautiful macarons are, and when I bit into the light, crispy shell and gooey center, I was a total goner. These French treats tend to come in beautiful pastel shades, so they're perfect to give to your Valentine, a daughter, or gal pal this holiday. Some of these are obviously best for gift giving to pals or daughters. Seriously dudes, don't come crying to me if you're dumb enough to give your wife tea towels or stationary for Valentine's Day, unless of course it's paired with a huge box of actual macarons.

These French cookies can be on the pricey side, but a great option to give a friend or relative a sweet little treat is The Memory of Paris Box of 6 by Leilalove Macarons. It has all 5-star reviews and is currently on sale at 25% off, marked down from $32.00 to $24.00. For something a little more substantial (for your special someone), give a larger assortment of macarons, like the 16-count box that comes with eight flavors in a beautiful gift box. If you need a gluten-free option, try these LeilaLove Macarons 10 Quantities 8 Flavors. These are all made fresh to order and have great customer reviews regarding shipping, presentation, and taste; any girl would be happy to get these on Valentine's Day.

Due to their huge rise in popularity in the US the last few years, macarons are not just for eating anymore. You can find cute gift items in the shape of a macaron, art and home goods printed with the cookie, and even macaron-scented beauty products.
