Friday Musings

1. Such a fun gift for the new year! Cards for every holiday, season, and/or event you could imagine!
 2. Love this star lock pendant necklace. Would be a cute gift for a groom to give his bride with a note tucked inside. So special, unique, and thoughtful!

3. Gorgeous and fun notebook from Made by Girl! Browse their whole site for fun stationary and more. Can we have one of everything please?

4. Karl Lagerfeld debuting his Coco Chanel short film in Dallas on December 10th? Road trip please. Read all about the movie and more. He also mentions Houstonian Lynn Wyatt is THE American girl!

5. Seen the Belles out and about? Then you know we love to rock red lipstick. We love this shade and new line from Top Shop. Plus we're suckers for that cute lipstick tube.

6. This monogram jewelry box is a must. Such cute way to store jewelry on top of any counter.

Enjoy this fabulous weather all weekend!

Friday Musings

1. Hello, gorgeous pillow! This polka dotted pillow would be a perfect way to brighten up any home. Check out her whole shop for more fun pillows. She has everything from monogrammed to Christmas!  

2. Oh my gosh this new concept of personalization is just brilliant! You choose your garment then personalize it with their different options, and two weeks later you will receive your purchase! Makes finding the perfect thing to wear much easier. Check out their website now to see what all you can make!

3. Starting your holiday shopping, but can't figure out what to get? We love this idea! A custom signature necklace. So personal, yet still stylish and chic! And affordable. Best of both all worlds. 
4. Instagrammers rejoice! For just $12 you can get all your favorite instagrams in one little book. The photos are printed on cardstock and are about the same size as they appear on your iPhone. Each book contains fifty photos and you receive two books in your order.

5. Love the idea of a hot chocolate bar for a holiday party, especially with the colder temps coming in. Have fun mugs and spoons for your guests! Fill your containers with all sorts of mixins: marshmallows, peppermint, cinnamon sticks, biscotti, and candy canes. Spruce it up for the adults with Baileys and Kahlua.
We hope you all had a great week and enjoy your Friday!
xoxo, the belles
