'Hillvetica'

It's already been a pretty big dose of excitement the last few days what with Hillary Clinton declaring her campaign. "I believe that the rights of women and girls is the unfinished business of the 21st century" - you go girl! But all seriousness aside, I'm also thrilled with her graphic campaign so far. The reveal of her "H" logo along with the rest of the alphabet is bold and youthful.

Designer Rick Wolf is actually trying to make an actual Hillvetica font - please please say it's true!

My 'Go-To' for Great Gifts

You know when your sister randomly gives you the perfect rose lipstick, or a friend brings you a new candle for spring just for fun? I love getting 'out of the blue' gifts, it's always such a sweet surprise and it makes me feel special. When I'm looking for fun gifts I always have a 'go-to' where I know I'll find something...can you guess what it is?
Art museums. As an avid museum junkie I've learned a few things - the fastest routes to my favorite pieces, the 'slow' times to go to see the real good stuff, AND that the gift shops are stocked with some of the most unique and beautiful small finds! My recent favorite? These Soap Stones by Pelle Designs in Brooklyn. They're hand made and are truly gorgeous in their packaging, clean lines, and lovely scents. 

What's your favorite place to go for fun gifts?
