Elsewhere: TheFeast.com, PR Couture, Mimi + Meg and Storenvy
My picks have been all over the internets lately. What fun!
TheFeast.com: Last week I was excited to curate a guide of local, ethical gift ideas for TheFeast.com. My list of 14 picks covers most of my SF favorites, from air plants at Paxton Gate to Early Jewelry at Candystore Collective and Renegade Holiday, which hits SF this weekend. This silk top by The Podolls is one I just snagged from Candystore and love! Read my full list here.
Mimi + Meg: Kansas City blogger Megan Biram posted a beautiful and amazing variety of guest gift guides this month, and mine hit the web on Tuesday. Isn’t Megan’s blog design beautiful? They didn’t hire her at Hallmark Cards for nothing. You can see the full post here.
PR Couture: What a treat to meet Crosby Noricks, founder of PR Couture, and have a Q&A on her blog in the same week! Crosby is a PR professional and has vowed to share her knowledge as much as possible. There is SO much to learn in the pages of her site. She’s working on a for-benefit jewelry line of her own (that sounds very exciting), so she invited me to participate in her series “Show Me the Pretty,” where she asks five questions of a designer, and the designer gets to ask five questions back to Crosby and her PR-pro network. I really enjoyed answering Crosby’s questions, and I can’t wait to see the answers to mine posted soon. If you’re into the fashion industry and don’t already follow this blog, you should start! You can read my Q&A here.
Storenvy: Even though you’re looking many of my gift picks in the face right now, I spent most of my gift-guiding time this season at the Storenvy blog! It was awesome working with Erin Loechner of Design For Mankind, Jessie Artigue of The Concrete Catwalk, Darius Monsef of COLOURlovers and Rachel Ryle of Tweety Got Back on their curated lists, and I loved filling in the blanks with several guides of my own. I think my favorites are 6 Gift Ideas for Moms and yesterday’s 12 Last-Minute Gift Picks from Indie Brands. You can view them all here.
