What Do You Do With Heart: Lisa of Lunchpails + Lipstick

 

IMG_9263

What are you most looking forward to this holiday season?

I could say the cliche answer of family (which is true), but really…sweaters and falling asleep with the windows open. We don’t get enough cool weather here in Southern California. Anything below 65 degrees makes me want to decorate the house and listen to Justin Beiber’s Christmas album (in a sweater with my windows open of course)!

 

Both of you have a beauty and fitness background, what are some things you’ll rely on this season to stay healthy. Meditation, wellness, skin/beauty… let us know.

We believe in staying consistent with your workout routines, especially during the hectic holidays. If you stay on track, you won’t feel the guilt of stuffing your face with treats. As far as beauty goes…hydrate! Moisture masks from Glamglow and I recently picked up this Head to Toe Balm from Trader Joe’s and it’s AMAZING! My hands feel so smooth and it’s not greasy. Best $4 I’ve ever spent.

What are some gifts you’re most excited to give?

 I love to give gifts that have meaning. For years I’ve given the Dogeared friendship and love necklaces out to those that hold a special place in my heart. All three of my daughters want Hover boards this year…I’m not nearly as excited to give those out..

How do you add heart to your holidays? What are your uniquely-you holiday traditions?

Last year we spent Christmas Eve morning at a women’s shelter. We fed the families, sang with them and gave each family a basket filled with some essentials as well as fun gifts for the kids. It was great to see my girls walk in excited about the people they would meet. It’s always good to give back, especially around the holidays.

What Do You Do With Heart: Jordan of Ramshackle Glam

RMSHACKLE

In search of the balance between fun, fresh and classic style, Jordan Reid shares a little of her holiday spirit. P.S. It’s filled with heart.

What’s inspiring you this holiday season?

Since it’s our first holiday season as residents of the West Coast – we just moved out to the Bay Area from Westchester – it’s going to be a little weird not having all those seasonal markers (snow, cold weather, etc). So I’m trying to get inspired to make my home as cozy and festive as possible despite the palm trees and blue skies outside – which means I’m going to be putting way more effort into my holiday decor than usual. I may even pick up a can of that spray-on snow stuff.

 

What are you most looking forward to this holiday? 

It’s the first year that my daughter is going to be old enough to join in the excitement – she’s one and a half, and my son is four – so I’m really excited to have it be all about the kids. I’m also looking forward to putting up the tree – the day the tree goes up is one of my favorite days all year long.

 

Are you a traditionalist or experimental in your seasonal celebration style? 

I’ve always fantasized about getting all experimental with my decor – a white (or even hot pink) tree, for example – but I can’t do it. The holidays, to me, are about traditions, and putting up the same decor elements that have been a part of the season to me since I was a kid is a big part of that. I love my old, ugly Christmas ornaments.

 

How do you add heart to your holidays? What are your uniquely-you holiday traditions?

By making the decision to pick and choose what events to go to so that we can spend the bulk of our time hanging out at home as a family. Chinese take-out, a screening of Elf, homemade cookies, wrapping presents next to the tree – for me, it doesn’t get any better than that.

What’s are the gifts you’re most excited to give this season?

If I told you, I’d ruin the surprise :). But I’m thinking about making a few batches of limoncello from the fruit tree in my yard to hand out to neighbors, and am all about the California cuff earring for my girlfriends.

What Do You Do With Heart: Sarah Sherman Samuel of Stories

Known for her effortless yet distinctively thoughtful style, Stories blogger Sarah Sherman Samuel shares what’s inspiring her this holiday season.

Where will you be spending your holidays?

We usually head back to my hometown in Michigan to visit my parents and see the snow but this year we are sticking around LA as a new family of three.

 Describe your seasonal style. 

My seasonal style is a lot like my normal style but with a little more gold and sequins.

 Can you tell us what’s inspiring you this season?

I love seeing layered textures and subtle pattern on pattern action. The holidays are a perfect time to layer it up with knits, quilted fabrics, gingham, and a little bit of shine.

How will you add heart to your holiday? What’s your uniquely-you holiday traditions? 

Growing up we  always had the tradition of opening one present on the night of Christmas Eve and I have continued that on as an adult. It is fun to pick something small or something extra special and give a gift that has the receivers full attention.

What Do You Do With Heart: Zolee Griggs

 

Unknown

Take the holidays back a notch with the youthful, punchy styling of our latest influencer. Zolee Griggs shines a light on where she finds inspiration and her style.

In the almost season-less Southern California, do you change up your look season to season? How do you dress to get into the spirit of the holiday season?

 

I try to go with the seasons, but it’s very confusing in LA when it’s technically fall right now but it’s 90 degrees. The best way I cope with this is wearing seasonal fabrics like suede or corduroy, but I probably won’t be busting out any coats any times soon.

Where do you go or what do you do to reflect and find new meaning, inspiration and motivation? 

I find a lot of inspiration from social media actually. The Internet is such a vast place with new trends what seem like daily, it seems hard to keep up. What I do is look at outfits or clothing pieces that I like and imagine how I can incorporate it into my wardrobe. I get a lot of motivation from my audience honestly. They’re always by my side and always give me new ideas! Its like having a bunch of friends and sisters over the internet that always wanna help you out and play dress up with you.

How do you add heart to your holidays? What are your uniquely-you holiday traditions?

I like to give back during the holidays! I think it’s best everyone feels warm and fuzzy inside no matter the circumstances! Plus it makes me happy to see others happy! Traditionally I spend time with my family for the holidays and we all get together to be appreciative of one another.

What Do You Do With Heart: Jessica of Prosecco + Plaid

Set the season with light necklace layers and sentimental moments. Prosecco + Plaid shares her what she’s most looking forward to during the holidays and her favorite gifts.

Absolutely loving your fall style! Can you tell us about the dogeared pieces you’ll be adding into your looks this season and why you love them?

 I love fall and winter but I am always dreaming of summer. Layering the “Take Me to the Ocean Mermaid” Necklace with the “Gem Triple Turquoise” Necklace and “Light as a feather” Necklace feels bohemian and delicate and reminds me of warm summer days at the beach. I love to pile on rings too. Stacking up lots of gold rings and mixing them in with my own vintage pieces is my go-to everyday style. I don’t like to feel weighed down by my jewelry and I love how light Dogeared pieces feel when you wear them. You don’t even feel like you’re wearing anything.

 

What are you most looking forward to this holiday season?

I love spending time with family and eating tons of good food. I come from a huge family so it’s fun to have everyone together for the holidays. Thanksgiving is my favorite because it’s all about the food, and I love it all, mashed potatoes, turkey, stuffing, pie, it’s making me hungry just thinking about it.

Let’s talk gifts! What’s the best gift you think you’ve given? Received?

I don’t know if I have a “best’ gift but I know my favorite gifts to give are ones that are special or sentimental. I tend to think about and buy gifts year round for people, whenever I’m traveling or just see something really cool and it reminds me of someone I’ll get it and save it for the holidays. The  best gift I’ve ever received is the amethyst ring my Great Aunt gave me for my 21st birthday. It was a gift to her from my grandparents and she handed it down to me. I wear it everyday.

 

How do you add heart to your holidays? What are your uniquely-you holiday traditions?

My favorite holiday tradition is going for a long family walk (no matter the weather) Christmas morning with my dog Nora and my Dad’s dog Ziggy. It’s a moment to spend quality time together, pause, be thankful, and take in the beautiful outdoors.
