Carina has been typing on the internets before there was a www in front of everything. This is why she’s cranky and wants to know when you’ll get off her lawn. She resides in a hopelessly outdated home in the Mountain West with a mathematician and three children hell-bent on destruction. Her laundry is not done, but her Twitter is totally up to date.

Holiday Gift Guide: For The Ladies

We’ve rounded up our holiday gift guide for ladies and the other kick butt women in your life. Sisters or girlfriends, who wouldn’t love to slip a little prezzie to each one to tell her “Thank you” for being there?

I love everything in Darlybird’s shop, but her accessories take the cake. They’re perfect for younger women who love pops of color and anything vintage or unique. Just look at her Vintage Mila necklace made from vintage Czech glass beads:


Since not all of us can trade for a real piece of fur like The Bloggess, the Pottery Barn Ombre Faux Fur Throw  is your friend’s chance to glam up her house (because it totally needs it.)


Here’s a fun pair of earrings I’d share with my sister or friends. I don’t think you can go wrong with Sundance jewelry.

I’m completely obsessed with Michael Kors anything (he just gets women) but I can’t take my eyes off his rose gold watches. Can you imagine your friend’s face if she opened up that beautiful box and found one of these? I can’t even stand it.

I think the best place to find unique and beautiful jewelry at good prices is I can’t bear going to the mall jewelry stores anymore because it’s all so boring and the same, like nobody’s changed their designs since 1986.  How about these alternatives that any of your sisters would love?

Hammered gold dangle earrings by CocoBijou

This jade necklace with a sweet pink flower from Zafirenia.


Keep your bestie nice and cozy with this beautiful emerald green mohair infinity scarf.

I’m crazy for this IKAT clutch from bagboy.

Can you even? I want to get one for every girl I know and maybe some I don’t know.


What girl couldn’t use a gorgeous pair of leather gloves? I’m always partial to driving gloves; they’re so chic, yet edgy, and never go out of style.


You could go to the grocery store and get a box of stale chocolates to give to your girlfriend, because, you know, you’re sick of her and wish she would drop dead. OH, you LOVE her? Show her with real chocolates. Crazy good chocolates. I recommended these to a friend who called me with her mouth full of chocolates and eyes full of tears. Leonidas are so good they’ll make you CRY.

What will  you be buying for your sisters, college roommates, or friends this year?

    Most important thing about this post, I just learned that mole hair should really be mohair. I always thought that was unappealing in the past.
