These Are A Few of Our Favorite Things…


Well the trees are up, and the lights are hung. It’s officially that time of the year to scramble to get all of the holiday shopping done and out of the way. Well don’t panic. The Blonde & The Brunette has teamed up with our gal pals over at Bri Holloway, to bring you a chic little gift guide to make your life, well, a little easier during this chaotic holiday season. We’ve pulled a few of our favorite things, that are perfect as gifts or simply as a little treat for yourself.. After all, you deserve it!


For our East Coast readers, our latest find is the very modern, much talked about Soho-based PaintBox mani/pedi studio with its highly curated nail art looks.


Go for the PaintBox Gift Cards. Who doesn’t like a fresh mani?!


Next on the list,  add a little bling to yours or a friend’s jewelry department. This time of year we’re a bit more sentimental and adore the much sought after, one of a kind, (2.) Cara Croninger Heart Necklace, or these vintage (3.) Chanel Shopping Bag Earrings.  Both are the perfect accessory addition to any outfit and or truly “wow-worthy” gifts!


4. Novis Navy Sweater | 5. Novis Cashmere Wool Swing Coat | 6. Novis Landscape Jacquard Sweater | 7. Novis Extra Fine Merino Wool Fisherman Sweater

If you haven’t noticed by now, we’re kind of sweater junkies this time of year!  Bri Holloway has found some of the best of the best in the sweater department. They’re all warm, comfy, and especially chic from chunky, brightly patterned and a stunning plaid cashmere swing coat.  Right now we love to pair them with leather pants, pencil skirts, or jeans.


 This is special. The new luxury trend is slippers. What’s better then kicking back, relaxing and slipping on something so über stylish and comfortable? Well, almost nothing. Our favorites are from the Luxe Me Now ! Their candy-striped and jeweled encrusted slippers are already in NJ’s closet.

8. Black&White | 9. Red&White | 10. Navy Jeweled


11. KJL Gold Multi-Chain Buckle Choker | 12. Megan Park Large Jeweled Neckpiece 

Last, but certainly not least, we have two statement neck pieces that are perfect for the holidays! We’re lusting over both of these!!

Wishing you a Happy Holiday!
