Here is a little something that we all can appreciate. Happy Sunday ladies!
Who doesn’t love coming home at the end of the day and immediately changing into loungewear?! I pretty much race up the stairs to change. But do you struggle a bit to find something that is stylish that is not full on pajama mode? If the doorbell rang would you hide?! The problem is that spending money on sleepwear/ loungewear can get over looked. But time to reconsider. Lunya is a game changer. They are shaking up the sleepwear world with luxury pieces that offer a refreshing modern spin to something that just lacked excitement and thoughtful design. The pieces are comfortable, flattering, and well just perfect for every woman. Lunya is meant to be seen and not hidden. Compliment with underbares.
Lunya, keep designing for the modern woman. isostilo is a big fan of yours. Thanks to my sister-in-law who gave me a lovely gift with Lunya lounge pieces. Best gift to receive!! All pics are from Lunya.
Hoping that the upcoming Fall weekends will have some spontaneous road trips for apple picking, leaf peeping, and maybe a bit of tailgating. Here are a few essentials to get you excited for those perfect Fall crisp days.
Celebrate Mother’s Day or any occasion by giving a thoughtful succulent garden. Lula’s Garden is an online succulent gift box company. Owner Liraz Birnbaum is providing a lovely alternative to a bouquet of flowers. Succulents are easy to care for especially if you don’t have a green thumb like me (it is a current goal though). They are clean, modern, and perfect for a long-lasting gift that brings the outdoors into your home. Green is trending and so is filling your home with natural beauty. Be eco conscious this Mother’s Day with a stylish gift from Lula’s Garden. You can pick out your hand planted garden and its beautiful packaging for that person you love. Prices are reasonable and delivered with care.
Imagine opening a beautifully packaged box as a gift?! Thank you to my dear friend Donna, who sent me this gift. I am happy to share that my succulents are enjoying their new environment. Truly a unique gift! Lula’s Garden sends everything you need including a small funnel and stick to give your sweet succulents a drink. Lula’s Garden
isostilo has a new local find in Cambridge. I am a fan of making something your own. The idea of designing and getting creative with textiles allows you to put your own spin on something. I love customizing t-shirts for my son’s birthdays. It has become a fun tradition. I scored this year with finding BOSSTOWN Custom Printing & Embroidery in Cambridge. Honestly I had gone to the Converse store originally but the equipment was under repair. So I was on the hunt to find a local business. Having a local shop that is owner occupied is always welcomed. We have to support our local shops to keep things interesting and unique. After a brief meet and chat with Melissa, the owner of BOSSTOWN, I knew a super fun t-shirt would be designed. I am thrilled to have found Melissa. She is running a business, juggling kids, and delivering a service that I hope all will consider the next time you are looking to personalize some kicks or t-shirts. I will say that she is located in an unassuming location and you walk through a little maze to find her small space. Another gem! BOSSTOWN
Look at what the snail mail just delivered to me. I can’t recall the last time I received an unexpected package in the mail. I will say it was so heart warming to receive an out of the blue gift from a friend. She had given me a little heads up but I had no idea what would follow. A small box from M.Flynn, a local jewelry store located in Boston’s South End, had landed on my doorstep. I opened it up and a huge smile came over my face and the thought bubble of “wow, she really thinks I like this guy!” The bracelet read to me as ASIF which is my husband’s name. Ha! But it is meant to read AS IF. I’m a bit slow on the draw. My new piece of arm candy will be worn proudly all the while thinking of my husband and a sweet friend! The thought of someone thinking about you when you’re not in their company is such a wonderful feeling. Here’s to friendship!! xo
Say what (I need another coffee for this one)! Balenciaga and Crocs?! My dad has been rocking the Crocs for years. So I am trying to get my head around the fashion hype over the $850 Balenciaga Platform Crocs (apparently already sold out). Only available in two colors, pink or sand. BTW this is not a first for Crocs to have their dubbed up footwear strutted on the runway. The last two years Christopher Kane led the way with them. Is this cool or absolutely ridiculous? Maybe a fashion hack is an option if you can’t get your hot little fingers (not possible) on them at Barneys, Saks, and other high-end retailers. Best of luck!
Read the Vogue article here or read on about my new tasty indulgence, Royce Chocolates.
I do not have much of sweet tooth. I prefer savory. But my husband was away and sweetly came home with a gift for me from Japan. The package had me interested. He handed me a neatly folded, cool, subtle silver package with a tiny Royce’ sticker that closed the package. Inside were two beautiful boxes filled with tiny squares of chocolates. I eventually took a nibble and thought at first I would share them with my chocolate loving husband (I was also thinking this was a gift to himself). Lets just say I WILL NOT BE SHARING. The tiny golden square dusted with chocolate melted in my mouth. Boxes are hidden and I am keeping an inventory.
This high quality, indulgent chocolate was founded in Sapporo in 1983. The art of Japanese chocolate must be experienced and now Royce’ chocolates can be ordered online in the U.S. I just learned that I can visit their Boston store for a quick shopping pick me up! But for now I will savor every nugget of heaven. Here is another Valentine’s Day gift idea:)
Meet Greetabl! This unique website makes gift giving fun, customized, and completely personal!

What better timing to discover Greetabl with Valentine’s Day approaching soon. I am having so much fun just exploring that sharing my find is a must! Here is a taste of what you will find on Greetabl. xo
Sweet connection: As a child I remember receiving every Valentine’s Day a gift from my mom. She would fill a mug or a small basket with sweets and chocolates from our local gourmet shop. It was wrapped in cellophane and tied off with a ribbon. A gift that was simple, thoughtful and hand-picked. This site is for my mom. Thank you for your heartfelt gifts. Big hugs to you!
Galentine’s Day is a thing and it’s all about celebrating your gal pals!!!
