Hey y'all! 

Halloween is definitely in the air tonight.... In just a few more hours it will be one of the most magical holidays of the year.

We still have a few items left from our Halloween Sale. So if you're in need of a last minute festive accessory, please stop by tomorrow morning... before it's too late.  We also have pumpkins and various decorations. 

How beautiful are these Venetian masks (shown above)? During my trip to Italy, I actually stopped in Venice and just had to buy these exquisite masquerade masks for the shop. I just love discovering unique pieces that are one-of-a-kind and finding the perfect owner for them... Maybe that owner is you?

Have a magical evening everyone!

Inspiration Monday (Happy Halloween)

Hey there ghosts and goblins! 

It's the start to Halloween week... so we thought we'd kick it off with a Halloween -Themed Inspiration Monday post. This is such a fun, magical week... even if you're an adult with children that have long since graduated college. 

It's the one time where you can dress up and be whoever (or whatever) you want to be. And what's more fun than seeing all those smiling children walking around collecting candy?  

So bring out your inner-child and carve a few pumpkins, string up some ghosts, and put on a costume (if just for a night). 

 

Trick or treat!

Makeup on the mind

Hey loves! 

We are so excited to be carrying the most luxurious makeup line in the shop: Kevyn Aucoin. As many of you know, this artistic genius passed in 2002, but the makeup legend lives on through these gorgeous products. 

I know this because our fabulous and very talented make-up artist, Jamie Adams, has been applying these products to my face left and right. And I can both see and feel the difference. Just check out the picture above to see how great they make my skin look! 

We are also offering Makeup Sessions by appointment only. It's $45 for a single session and you are not obligated to buy anything (although you probably won't be able to resist!) and you'll receive your very own consultation, application, and makeup chart (so you'll never forget which products go where). Just give us a call to set up an appointment or pop on in the shop to browse our products.

And, if you have a budding glamorista in the family, we can also create a customized gift basket with these items as a holiday present. 

 

Here's to looking your best!

Hey y'all!

We are so excited to be introducing our first Luxury Basket of the Fall Winter 2013 Season...

The Centerpiece Basket

We've been spending the past month at the shop really trying to figure out the best way to make your holiday season festive, fun, and hassle-free. After mulling over a bunch of different ideas, we think we might have created the perfect gift.... Only this is a different kind of gift.... A gift to yourself. 

The Centerpiece Basket  is, quite literally, your holiday centerpiece in one gorgeous package. This luxurious arrangement is filled with everything you need to create a fabulous, festive tablescape.

Rustic Burlap Runner? Check

Large, three-wick candle? Check

Glass votives? Check

Our signature Peace Dove? Check

Pinecones? Cinnamon sticks? Greenery? Check. Check. Check.  

So all those holiday dinners you have coming up over the next few months? You know the ones we're talking about...  The ones where you're trying to create a warm, cozy, magical atmosphere for friends and family while making it seem totally and utterly effortless... Well, now these dinners actually can be effortless. Except for the cooking part. (Trust me, if we could create a Thanksgiving Dinner Basket, we would). 

And the best part? All you have to do to is visit our Digital Shop... And with the push of a button, The Centerpiece Basket will arrive at your doorstep in approximately 5-10 business days (Instruction Scroll and all). 

For more of my whereabouts and happenings at the shop, be sure to stop by the Blog later this week... Much more to come. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday!

Hey y'all! 

We have been busy bees over here at the Indulge shop. The holiday season is fast approaching.... before you know it, it will be

Halloween,

Thanksgiving,

Christmas,

Hanukkah,

New Years.

Valentine's Day

(And don't forget about miscellaneous birthdays sprinkled in) 

I just love this time of year. Fall is such a fun season, don't you think?

But it can also be a bit stressful... so much decorating to do... and gifts to give. Sometimes the hassle of getting it all together outweighs the fun. Which is exactly what we don't want to happen. We want you to enjoy this time of year... Which is why we've devised a simple, carefree, fabulous way to give gifts...

So take a sip of your pumpkin spice latte and read on.

We are about to launch a line of Ready-Made-Luxury-Baskets as a part of our Digital Shop. So not only will you be able to give fabulous gifts to all your friends and family, you'll be able to do it with the click of a button! 

The best part?

This line of Luxury Gift Baskets will be launching this coming weekend.... So if you want to get a head start on care-free gift-giving, you can. 

I don't know about you, but we're ready to celebrate!

As you can see, this is meant to be a small taste of our expansive, beautiful Indulge Shop. We are now open.... So you'll just have to stop by to see more....  

The transformation is truly astounding.

P.S. If you can't stop by we'll be posting more revealing photos later this week... You didn't really think we'd leave y'all hanging, did you? 

 

the perfect day

Hey, hey!

It has been the perfect day. For all of you in Westport, isn't it just gorgeous out?  A nice cool breeze and sunny skies... 

And we have made a ton of headway in the new shop. We've installed the water fountain. Mirrors are being placed. Jewelry is arranged on the displays. We even have the computers working! Exciting, exciting!

Anyhow, hope y'all are taking advantage of this nice weather! And stay tuned... many images to come of the much larger and much more fabulous Indulge Shop!

Hey y'all! 

Everything is coming together... slowly but surely. We finally have the space cleared out and have begun merchandising. Workers are coming in today to finish up some cosmetics. And hopefully touch up the floors... Fingers crossed.

What does this all mean? 

We should be up and running very shortly. :) 

 

Hope everyone is staying dry on this rainy Tuesday.

Hey, hey!

 

So today's inspiration Monday post is all about taking chances. After all, if you don't challenge yourself, how will you ever know what you can accomplish?  

This post hits especially close to home.  

As everyone knows, we are currently breaking through the wall into the shop next door. A major chance. With a major payoff... If everything turns out as expected. However, although we've done some extensive preparation for this renovation and expansion, you just never really know how things will turn out, until you know...  

So here's to taking chances! Hope this post inspires you to do the same! 

 

xoxoxo,

inspiration monday (have a very nautical fourth of july)

Hey, hey! 

As y'all know the fourth of July is this week, and I just love this holiday! Today's post is  a little dose of inspiration if you're not already in the celebrating spirit. 

Hope everyone has found a beach and some fireworks somewhere for the week! Or a boat. Or a patio.  

And if you need some decorations we have a ton of patriotic little flags in the shop along with a large selection of nautical accessories. Just give us a call or stop on by!

 

Happy Monday!

Hey loves,

I know summer technically started last Friday, but I just thought I'd do a post to honor my most favorite of seasons. Of all time. There's just something so wonderful about the warmth and the water. The holidays are so fun.... nothing beats a fourth of July cookout and fireworks. It's really just magical. 

How are you celebrating your summer so far?

Hey loves! 

So I just wanted to introduce my daughter Katherine to anyone who hasn't already met her! She'll be working in the shop all summer long.... And I am so excited to be sharing this time with her! 

So if you stop on by over the next few months... please don't hesitate to say hi and introduce yourself! (And if you love that gorgeous cuff she's wearing in the photos above, it's from a fabulous jewelry line we just started carrying in the shop.... see my trip to the city post!... Each piece is one-of-a-kind s be sure to stop by if you want to take a look before we sell out! They're going quick!). 

Hope everyone is having the most wonderful Saturday so far!
