i love these beautiful boxes so much. i’d been eyeing them on instagram for awhile so i invited barrett, the owner of valleybrink road who makes these beauties, to bring a few by the studio so that we could shoot them. enjoy the eye candy below!
she creates a variety of boxes fit for every occasion from food, home, parenting and beauty. the beauty box above had so many amazing scents and products that i’d never tried and LOVE now (especially the lavender lotion.)
the boxes are hand delivered all over los angeles but she also ships out of state. you can email email@example.com for ordering inquires.
i like the idea of sending someone a sweets/beauty combo box. they get the indulgence of both worlds and the chance to try products that you normally wouldn’t stumble upon.
the home box with linens, candles and chocolate would make anyone feel less stressed.
the local LA deliveries come with a sweet arrangement of flowers and the others are sealed with a holiday garnish and bow. thanks for the gorgeous photos, brittany! they’re making my day.

I don’t know about yours, but my girlfriends are just the coolest girls around and I love them so dearly. And of course, it’s a treat to find a special something as colorful as their personality. Here are a few treasures that made it on my shopping list this year. –stephanie

happy holidays! today, we’re sharing a recipe for these festive cocktails. i love the deep red color with the accent of floating cranberries. and, as an added bonus you can freeze the cranberries ahead of time to help keep the cocktails cool!
we made a slight adaptation on this recipe. we created the mint infused syrup but we also added floating fresh mint leaves and frozen cranberries before serving. they were delicious and the hint of lemon in the cocktail keeps it tasting light and refreshing.
what are some of your favorite holiday cocktails? i’ve been wanting to make homemade egg nog, i’m not a fan of the store bought kind but i’ve heard that the homemade version is completely different. do you have any recipes to share?
