Guess what? Amazon decided to give us a storefront! While our website is the only place you'll find the BFP collection online, use our Amazon storefront as a resource for everything else we're obsessed with. In our curated lists you'll find the metal straws we can't stop using with our Orca tumblers, acrylic frames we can't stop posting about, and everything we're drooling over for spring.
Did you know we will personalize any of our notecards for free? Simply leave the personalization request in the notes section of the checkout process. Easy as pie!

The dark, dreary days of January and February have us craving brighter colors, warmer weather and the fresh blooms of spring. While we still have to endure a few more weeks of winter, we're springing forward without looking back. Our Spring Collection is surely the cure for those winter blues. It includes four new cup designs, a handful of new notecards, two new luggage tags, two new greeting cards (one specially for the graduate), and new gift tags. Basically, we have your spring occasions covered (think spring birthdays, Spring Break travel, Mother's Day, graduation, end of the year teacher gifts).
Our large gift tags were such a hit at Christmas that we decided to introduce several year-round options. Grab a handful to keep on hand for those last minute gifts (tie one on a wine or champagne bottle and your gift instantly looks more thoughtful. They also work well tied on a gift bag). You'll thank us later!
We also have a sweet treat just for you... since it's the day we celebrate love, why not treat yourself? It sounds like a brilliant idea to us. We're going to sweeten the deal even more with an apparel and greeting card sale. Both categories have amazing deals that you don't want to miss including greeting cards as low as $1 and half-price sweatshirts. Stock up while you can!
Happy Valentine's Day!

While I'm not a huge tv binge-watcher, this dreary weather has forced me indoors with little activity other than The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Who's watching it? I watched the first two seasons in about a week and have been on the edge of my seat waiting for the next season to drop, though I think we have a while before that happens. What's not to love about a show with a female powerhouse as lead and a pre-Carrie Bradshaw closet to drool over.
This is my interpretation of a 2019 version of Midge...

I've recently been working on new designs for spring. In the process, I've found myself increasingly inspired by Chanel, both old and new. It's a classic brand, one that will never go out of style. For some reason, I'm craving the classic tweeds, quilting details and cap-toe shoes. It never gets old, does it?

Happy Monday! Here's a fresh week, a new set of goals, and a fresh page in your calendar!
We just announced a warehouse sale that will be exclusively on instagram.

Have you picked up some of our Valentine's Day greeting cards yet? It's the perfect time to tell someone you're thinking of them...
January 17, 2019
There are days when my to-do list is simply one non-glamorous errand after another. On days like this, instead of conforming to the expected errand attire, I like to go big. I'll throw a fuzzy jacket on with jeans so I feel like I'm going somewhere more important later, even if it's only to the dermatologist.

PSA: Valentine's Day is less than a month away! While lavish gifts aren't the expectation, small tokens that show your love are a nice touch. We put together a small gift guide for the occasion.

Whether your plans include a Galentine's Day gathering or a cozy night at home, we hope it's a day filled with love and laughter. Don't forget to pick up one of our greeting cards as the finishing touch!

I spent the first 14 days of 2019 in a paperwork daze. It's time to reemerge and knock out 2019 in style! I think we should all just go for it this year. Buy the snakeskin boots. Wear the neon beanie. Don't apologize for being you. Who's with me? See more of my thoughts on this here >>

My final thoughts on the Golden Globes...
I want to take Lucy Liu's gown and make it into a sequin bomber for every day wear. I would wear it with distressed jeans, a plain white tee and booties. How can we make this happen?
January 07, 2019
The Golden Globes are always an exciting event to watch because it kicks off red carpet season. You get an early look at what will be trending this spring. One thing I noticed was a handful of bold jewel tones but a lot of soft pastels, lots of pale pinks and neutrals. Softer fabrics and unfussy hair styles ruled supreme. It appears that feminine details and an over-all softer look are what we're going for and I couldn't be happier about it. And can we talk about Julia Roberts? I mean.... Queen.

I feel like there's an understood rule that we're supposed to live in athleisure throughout the month of January, or maybe that's just me. I'm over heavy sweaters (especially when the high tomorrow is nearly 60), I'm trying to workout more, and I just don't feel like sitting all day in tight jeans. So, if we're keeping it casual for a few weeks, why not look extra while doing so? Shop her look below.

Happy New Year!
I can't believe we're already in 2019. There are times when I feel like the clock is speeding up when what we really need is for it to slow down. Let's make this year our best yet, shall we? Let's make time for friends and family. Let's be present by putting our phones away for a bit. Let's be nice to each other and have more compassion in this tumultuous world we live in. Wishing you a happy Happy New Year!

The sweatshirt is here!
We've been dying to come out with something cozy that you won't want to take off, and our classic sweatshirt is just the answer. It's an eco-fleece crew neck sweatshirt that is sure to become your new go-to. It's ideal for lounging around or running errands. It also pairs well with your festive Christmas pajamas!
The sweatshirts run true to size, but allow for a small amount of shrinkage with any cotton material (fabric content: 50% polyester, 46% cotton, 4% rayon).
In other news, today is the last day to place an order on our website for 2018. We will be stepping away to spend time with friends and family and sincerely hope you find time to do the same! All orders placed between December 18th and January 2nd will be shipped when we return on January 3rd. We will also be unplugged from our inbox, so all emails will be answered when we return.
See you in 2019!

Not sure what to wear to a holiday party? A fun and flirty cocktail dress with a touch of sparkle by way of a fun bootie or accessory is a great choice. This dress looks incredibly comfortable and would take you throughout the year with the ponte knit fabric. It's also available in a handful of colors, so go bold or stick to a classic black.

Do you dare to wear a graphic sweatshirt with a sequin skirt? Maybe for your office Christmas party? I think it's cute, has a little splash of sparkle and is conservative enough that your boss won't cringe. Not to mention these pumps... Meghan Markle wore them and I think they might just be the perfect pump.

Why is it that we near the end of November and I'm instantly stressed? So many Christmas presents to buy, so many events to find outfits for, so many festive gatherings to attend... is anyone else feeling like they're one step away from a total meltdown? Let's hold it together... we can do this! Don't lose sight of the bigger reason for the season. After all, it is the most wonderful time of the year! Let's love and support one another. I can promise you this, there's someone else out there going through exactly what you are no matter what your mess might be. Let's meet each other in the midst of our messes and celebrate life!

The party invites are rolling in. Some require a heavy app as your ticket in. Others are more of a gift or cookie exchange. Whatever the occasion might be, it's always a nice gesture to bring a gift for the host and hostess because let's be serious... we know they put in more work than they wanted to. A nice bottle of wine, champagne or the host's favorite beverage are always a nice touch. This year, grab one of our large gift tags to make it even more festive! My favorite find this year might be the honey spoons for tea. Shop my favorite hostess gifts below:
Sports Quiz game | wine chilling twirls (set of 4) | tea honey spoons | large gift tags | Home Body book | almond toffee | copper wine key | tequila bento box

Copy and paste the link to this one and send it to your significant other. You're going to want everything on this list! A cute pair of designer sneakers, a Gucci bag that not everybody has, a facial scrubber for a spa-like facial, a Chanel ring... I mean, this is basically my wish list.
Chanel ring | Christian Louboutin coffee table book (also available on Amazon) | drop earrings | velvet Gucci bag | necklace | Givenchy sneakers | black leather Gucci bag | PMD facial cleansing device | gold chain bracelet | silver chain bracelet | pink bow bag | fur wrap

Don't forget about the guys! Are they the hardest to shop for or is just me? How many times can you gift whiskey stones? While I find the men in my life particularly challenging to buy gifts for, it's still a fun effort trying to think of something outside the box. Here's what I've come up with so far:
Kiehl's moisturizer | whisky truffles | basketball hoop (also available in this color) | Sailing coffee table book | personalized leather file folder | USB port | Barbour jacket | Sugarfina bourbon bears | campfire poker set | charging mat | Molton Brown body wash

Calling all homebodies... this list is for you!
Luxurious textures, yummy scents, and comfy loungewear are all a sure-win for any female from your mother/mother-in-law, aunt, sister/sister-in-law. Who doesn't want a cozy gift? This list also includes some of my tried and true favorites. A silk pillowcase (they're easier on your hair than cotton and help prevent wrinkles / I have one and LOVE it), a cozy cardigan and throw by my favorite cozy brand (Barefoot Dreams), a fresh pair of slippers... I'm ready to hibernate!
Slip silk wash | Slip silk pillowcase | match striker | mercury glass candle | Barefoot Dreams drape cardigan (also available in plus-size) | The Nature of Home coffee table book | jersey pj top | jersey pj joggers (also love this top and bottom by UGG) | bath brush | BFP tumbler | pink socks | Barefoot Dreams throw blanket (also love this more budget-friendly option by UGG) | UGG slippers

One of the best parts of Christmas is the stockings! From fun trinkets to the pamper-me products you won't buy for yourself, stockings are the space to really tailor Christmas gifts to the recipient in a small way.
This list covers some of my favorite stocking stuffers this year. A set of chocolate lipsticks for the fashionista, a boot bag for the traveler, a velvet bow for the prim & proper... you get the idea. PLUS, I even made a list for the slackers. The second list is all products found on Amazon that can be delivered in 2 days. We thought outside the box on this list... a microfiber towel (great for cleaning, working out, camping, the beach, etc.), a yellow lightbulb for the insomniac to help induce a restful sleep, mosquito repellent bracelets for the outdoorsy type... I could go on and on. Amazon really has everything.
The best news is both lists include products that are all under $25. Happy stuffing!
"Priorities" notepad | Rise & Shine canister | velvet hair tie | bandana | eye gels | boot bag | chocolate lipsticks | body wash
A Moment to Breathe daily devotional | jade roller | Sleep Ready light bulb | microfiber towel | metal straws (pairs great with a BFP tumbler) | mosquito repellent bracelets | wool & cashmere shampoo | Evian facial mist

Do you know someone who has the travel bug, the one who's always planning her next quick trip near or far? Or maybe you have a friend that racks up more miles than you'll ever dream of because she travels for work. Whichever travel style fits the bill, we have a list of gifts that are sure to be a win. From a great coat that I happen to live in come winter to a lightweight travel tote (one that Target has created a dupe of)... these gifts are great for any gal on the go.
luggage tags | cashmere tech-friendly gloves | charging dock | quilted tote | quilted tote (also available here) | travel-sized nail files | packing cubes | white sweatshirt | red parka | large clear travel pouch | small clear travel pouch | Slip travel pillow and eye mask set

Today's list of gifts is for that friend or family member who doesn't shy away from color, the only who fully embraces mixed prints and patterns with a bold sense of style (the kind that my black & white closet envies). Whether it's a fun tumbler (with coordinating straw) or a fun scarf that will pretty much go with any hue, color is the name of the game today...
rainbow straw set | lavender leather gloves | pom pom beanie | tumbler | striped scarf | packing cubes | So Much to Celebrate book | pajama set | lavender parka | striped clutch | Tiffany's perfume | Staud pink bag

We all have that friend, the one who chooses champagne over wine every time (or maybe I'm talking about you). This list is for you or for all your brut-loving besties. The best part is all of these cheeky gifts are $25 or less so they fit the budget for a gift exchange, dirty Santa or other gathering where bubbles are sure to be served. My favorite on the list is the bright eyes set, because let's face it, we're all a little puffy after a night of bubbles.
bright eyes set | "Brut" notecards | "Brut notepad | champagne cocktail set | cocktail lollipops | prosecco tea cup | champagne bucket ornament | Rose all day tea towel | "Press for champagne" keychain
