Gift Guide for Your Mr. Bond

Men are generally difficult to buy for, especially if they seem to have everything. So what do you get them?! As a basic rule, the best kind of gift is usually something we may have been considering for ourselves but just couldn’t quite justify buying. With men in particular, useful items and gadgets tend to top the list of favorites. In particular, our Mr. Bond also appreciates quality and style in everyday life. So combine luxury items that could be quite useful on a daily basis with a splash of style, and you get something like this: 1 // Whiskey Stones :: 2 // Black Leather iPhone Case :: 3 // Thierry Mugler Angel A*Men Pure Havane :: 4 // Ted Baker ‘Skyfall’ Driving Gloves :: 5 // Harry’s Winston Shave Set :: 6 // Topman Tan Wide Leather Belt :: 7 // Grey Pullover Sweater :: 8 // Diesel Chronograph Brown Leather Watch :: 9 // Philips Sonicare DiamondClean – Black Edition :: 10 // Clarisonic Aria Sonic Skin Cleansing System :: 11 // Kiehl’s Ultimate Man Refueling Set :: 12 // SOL Republic In-Ear Headphones :: 13 // Everlane Weekender Bag :: 14 // Ted Baker Wallet ::…

PHILIP B Clarifying Shampoo

We all know that a clarifying shampoo is a necessary step in our haircare routine.  To make all the rest of our haircare work how it’s intended, it’s a good idea to press the reset button once a week.  However, it doesn’t have to feel like a chore or strip your hair of its natural moisture and elasticity. I’ve recently decided to upgrade my clarifying shampoo to the Peppermint & Avocado (yes, it smells divine!) Volumizing & Clarifying Shampoo from PHILIP B.  I’m big on scents, because I believe they add a lovely layer to the whole experience of primping; the aromatherapeutic effects of this shampoo are natural, stemming from pure plant extracts and essential oils.  Also, I’m partial to the brand because they have a Russian Amber Imperial Shampoo that’s on my wishlist of luxury shampoos to try.  It’s known as a fountain of youth for hair, and no matter your hair type, it promises healthier, smoother, silkier and more voluminous locks than ever.  Can’t wait to try that one in the future! Something to note, though, is that the first time I used the PHILIP B Clarifying Shampoo, I noticed that it didn’t seem to create very much…

Style At Home // The Moroccan Pouf

Morocco is home to some of the most beautiful colored textiles and hand-crafted items…  and our favorite export is definitely the pouf!  Perfect as a footstool or extra seating, Moroccan poufs are at home in most any room of the house, from the living room to the playroom.  Handmade by artisans in Morocco, each one is unique, with subtle variations in color.  Individual pieces of leather are dyed to perfection, then stitched together and embroidered by hand. Poufs can be used for extra seating, as an ottoman, as a small table with a tray on top, or just as added interest or texture in a room.  They come in a full range of color options, as well as metallic or non-metallic leathers, and can be as ornate or as simple as your decor.  And being Bond Girl Glam, we went for a silver pouf, naturally! Bring home a bit of worldly chic with your own Moroccan pouf!   Shop The Look:   Be sure to follow us on Bloglovin’ to not miss out on future posts!

Fall is upon us, so that means we’ll soon be seeing boots everywhere, if not already.  Whether in a sumptuous leather or cozy suede, boots can be as comfortable as they are sexy.  I don’t know about you, but I can get more hours out of most boots than I can most stilettos.
