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

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.

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.

What Do You Do With Heart: Courtney of Pretty Little Fawn

A little more character, a little more love – it’s the little things that make the season sparkle. Courtney of Pretty Little Fawn tells us about her latest vintage find and her go-to holiday favorites.

EDIT1[1]

What was your last “proof that ‘Good Things Happen’” thrifting find? 

I actually scored majorly just last week. I’ve been hunting for overalls for ages, and finally found a pair that doesn’t make me look like a farmer or a child! They’re just a little bit slim, and perfectly worn in. I’m so excited to shoot photos in them!

 

What Dogeared jewels will you pair with it?

I would for sure pair it with the hammered stacking rings and the Pearls of Love Necklace! So perfect, simple, and classic.

 

Describe your holiday style.

I definitely like to glam it up a bit for the holidays. I’m a jeans and tee shirt girl by nature, but a part of me will always really love glitter. I take the Holidays as a chance to basically dip myself in gold and sparkles!

EDIT2

What’s your favorite holiday movie? 

I think this may be on the top of most girl’s lists, but Love Actually never fails to put me in the right mood for the holidays. I pretty much take any chance to stare at Colin Firth in sweaters.

 

How do you add heart to your holiday? 

I add heart to my holiday by sending Christmas cards every year. It’s such a great tradition that my mom instilled in me, and I really do enjoy siting there and addressing cards to all of my friends and family. It’s very soothing!

 

What are your uniquely-you holiday traditions?

Because my family didn’t have a lot of money growing up, I got used to the idea of having a small tree, rather than some 8ft tall spruce. So every year I get a little Rosemary bush that’s shaped like a Christmas tree, and put it in my living room. I remember having a similar one when I was a kid, and plus it makes my whole apartment smell amazing!

What are you making this holiday season?

I love designing printable gift tags, because I usually hate the ones i could buy. i also love pretty presents under the tree, so this year i decided i’m going neutral and using brown kraft paper with black ribbon and elements from nature like leaves. the prettier the outside of the present, the slower they’ll unwrap it.

Do you have a favorite holiday dish? To eat and/or to make and why?

My husband makes the best chestnut sausage stuffing EVER. i look forward to it all year long. i’m always in charge of dessert and usually try a new thing ever year, but i recently decided i’m starting a new tradition that i’ll being making bread pudding, and then it will be molly’s famous bread pudding and someday mom’s famous bread pudding. i just have to try making bread pudding first.

Tell us… what’s on the ‘Almost Makes’ holiday mixtape?

I love christmas music so much — the second we pull out the decorations box i blast ‘em. my all time favorite songs are happy xmas (john lennon), santa baby (eartha kitt) and santa clause got stuck in my chimney (ella fitzgerald).

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

I’m reaaaaally into thoughtful gifting. I keep notes on my phone all year long and write down anytime someone mentions wanting or needing something. If someone in my life mentions they don’t have a trivet, they’ll be getting a trivet next christmas.

Behind The Collection: Dogeared + Danielle LaPorte

08

Dogeared has been captivated by bestselling author and inspirational speaker, Danielle LaPorte, for a long time. Dogeared Founder + Creative Force, Marcia Maizel-Clarke, discovered Danielle’s online TRUTHBOMBS – short inspirational messages that are witty, powerful and insightful, and instantly saw a connection between the jewelry and her words.

03

Marcia started sending truthbombs around to the team at Dogeared in October 2012. The first one was #139 on October 25, 2012 – “Joy is Power”. By the time “French Kiss Life” came out in May 2014, Marcia said “it’s time” and wanted to find Danielle and talk about the potential to do a partnership together.

12

It was easy to visualize the truthbomb as they existed with a piece of Dogeared attached – a message, sentiment and striking simplicity all coupled together.

01

The Dogeared team invited Danielle to the Los Angeles  headquarters, reviewing truthbombs, charm options, sketching, talking about how to design the packaging, poetics and pulling the collaboration together. This design session was critical to designing Danielle’s exclusive “truthbomb” charm.

The graphic and design teams, working with input from Danielle, created the packaging that allows the customer to experience the combination of truthful poetics and conscious jewels.

In March, Marcia + Danielle  filmed “the making of the collection” in Malibu for a day of celebration – including champagne, a beautiful California sunset, good friends and good food.

Today, Dogeared + Danielle LaPorte are so excited to launch The #Truthbomb Collection.
