In honor of upcoming Valentine’s Day the fab Flynn girls and I decided that a little shoot showing off some of our romantic collection together was in order. Cue up our model Lauren (a new team member at Erin Gates Design) and photographer friend Sarah Winchester to capture the delicate bracelets, rings, necklace and earrings in the Gates Collection. And in honor of Vday they are offering my fab readers 15% off your purchase (of anything on their site) with the code LOVE15. Perhaps a good time to send valentines day hints to a certain someone?? :)
I have always wanted to have my own boutique. Obviously adding that to my already insane to-do list is too much, so when M. Flynn approached me about doing a pop-up shop in coordination with my jewelry collection with them I leapt at the chance! They renovated an amazing little space off their gorgeous store and we filled it with brands I’ve collaborated with as well as some local companies I just love. We had our party a couple weeks ago but the shop is open until December 25th so please pop in if you are in the South End shopping! Perfect for holiday gifts (yes, we need to start thinking about that!)
We set the table with my new collection with Jill Rosenwald (including brand new hand-painted striped dinner plates!) We made a centerpiece out of greens and jewelry (and used some The Ropes Maine bracelets as napkin rings, of course).
I’m so excited to welcome Lafco New York to the EOS family! I have been buying their candles for years as gifts and for myself, and now they are an official EOS supporter- pretty cool. And to welcome them to our little crew, I’m sharing their new collection launching today called Present Perfect. Beautiful packaging, great scents and a variety of products (I’m partial to the candles and hand soap!) The scents are hand blended in France and Italy from pure essential oils and many ingredients are locally sources- the candles, for instance, are made from wax made and hand-poured in New England.
Some of the new scents- Gardenia & Lime

Scent diffusers may remind you of the early 2000’s when they became super popular, but I think they are having a resurgence! Especially in my house- I have three going on right now- one next to my bed (lavender for relaxation), one in my guest room (to keep it smelling fresh even though it rarely gets used) and one in my closet. As much as I love scented candles, sometimes you don’t want to have to light one in order to get your house smelling yummy.
I’ve seen a lot of fragrance companies re-issuing diffusers, so I don’t think I’m alone! Here are some great looking ones to give a sniff:
