A Vintage-Inspired Home Office

My husband and I have a dream, and a very real goal, to buy a house that we can retire in. On my list of things I'd love for the house to include is an extra bedroom that I could turn into a beautiful home office. I envision a very Instagram-worthy desk, a place to store all of the PR samples I get, and some pretty tufted accent chairs: where I can enjoy coffee breaks with my husband, who luckily also works from home.

10 Perfect Summer Hostess Gifts for $20 & Under



As you head off to your summer pool parties and backyard barbecues, don't forget to bring a little something for the hostess. If you're simply heading to  friends house for some chill time or a play date, you don't have to worry about bringing a hostess gift, but anytime you're officially invited to an event someone is hosting for multiple guests, you should always bring something in addition to anything you're contributing to the meal. A hostess gift should be something exclusively for the hostess, like a box of chocolates or a nice candle. For Summer, you can find the perfect hostess gift if you focus on summer-themed gifts, like a citrus-scented bath gift or a Summer-scented candle. You can also give something they can use for Summer entertaining, like this set of summer-themed cocktail plates or a this Martha Stewart Summer picnic set.
