I found Olive and Cocoa thanks to Oprah Magazine. Originally I was attracted by a succulent planter box that was featured in a Mother’s Day Gift Ideas part of the magazine but when I went to the Olive and Cocoa website, there was SO much more! If you are in the market for unique gifts, edible delights or a fabulous floral arrangement, check out Olive and Cocoa!
BHLDN is a fairly new wedding brand from the retail family that brought us Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Free People, Terrain and Leifsdottir. Just yesterday, BHLDN opened their first ever physical store right here in Houston!! BHLDN offers beautiful wedding gowns, decor ideas, jewelry, accessories and more! Visit them in Highland Village.

I just love this shop on Etsy! The designers behind K & K Artistry live here, in Houston, and create some of the most interesting jewelry and accessories I’ve seen! Enjoy. : )
I love checking out what Etsy has to offer; there’s so much. Even more, I love when I come across a local designer with amazing items! I adore the creations by Desi. Her Etsy shop is called bijouxbydesif and her jewelry is wonderful! Check out her pieces below…. oh yeah, she’s is currently having an end of the year sale!! Bonus!
I checked out Etsy today looking for neat earring holders/organizers. Originally I was looking for some sort of tree type earring holder but I came upon these amazing twisty copper things and I fell in love with them. They are such simple, clever designs and are very visually appealing. I liked them so much I even put one on my Amazon wishlist (another wonderful thing, by the way). Tonight I went back to Etsy and looked at these items again and noticed that the designer of these wonderful creations is right here in Houston!! Please check out Silver Chic Designs… you’ll see what I’m talking about.
Here is the Birdcage Bracelet Organizer. Another different looking and beautiful piece.
Give the Treble Clef Earring Display to the music lover in your life. Every piece looks so well made and unique.
She also has some pretty necklaces in the mix. This is the Stone Painting Necklace.
We can’t wait to see our good friend Tonya from Beauty for Real. It’s the only lip gloss we carry when we go anywhere now. The tube has a light and a mirror… it saves so much room in my evening clutch!
