What do you love most about the Holiday Season?

Bringing together family and friends for a cozy evening that creates the best memories.

What is your favorite item from your personal wishlist and why?

The David Bowie book. He is such an inspiration for me as his music and outfits were groundbreaking.

Who is the person you find it hardest to shop for?

My husband, he always says he has everything, which is why I usually gift experiences! The book, 101 Things To Do Before You Are Old & Boring, is the perfect guide for the festive season – full of fun activities and challenges!

My favorite holiday tradition is…

Our Bad Christmas Gift Game! Everyone has to wear an ugly sweater and bring two unwanted gifts along with one amazing gift. We play a game where the challenge is to try and steal each other’s best gifts – we always end up laughing so much!

What is the “must-have” item for a fashionista?

Caroline Cox’s Forever Chic. It’s a book full of must-know tips on beauty, fashion, and style which makes it easy for you to dress impeccably every day.
