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!

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.

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:

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
by my favorite cozy brand (Barefoot Dreams), a fresh pair of slippers
... I'm ready to hibernate!

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!

The 2018 Gift Guide is here!
We'll be covering every person on your list over the next few days, so stay tuned daily for a new gift guide. Let's get started, shall we?
Let's start with the one that woke up in the middle of the night to watch the Royal wedding, the one who is on the edge of her seat to see what Meghan and Kate will wear next, the one that's obsessed with all things Royal (ok, so I'm kind of talking about myself here). This guide is for what we're calling the ROYALLY OBSESSED. From Meghan's engagement look to her first outing with the Queen (and obviously her wedding looks), we've got her wardrobe completely illustrated!

Whoa.... where have we been? Last week was the one holiday show we do each year, Christmas Village, here in Nashville. It takes so much prep work in the days and weeks leading up to it and days afterwards getting reorganized. After three days of post-show work, I think I'm finally caught up and back in my groove.
However, it's cold and rainy outside today. I'm feeling all the cozy textures, furry coats and warm drinks.... who's with me?

The bandanas are here (as well as the rest of the Holiday collection, but more on that later). We've been working on these for months and are proud to say that they are cut, sewn, and printed here in TN. They are available in 5 colors and can be worn a multitude of ways.
Oh, and tie one around a wine bottle for those upcoming Christmas parties.... easiest hostess gift ever!

You know how there are people that love Halloween so much who decorate to the nines, have the perfect costume (every year) etc. etc? Yea, I'm not one of those people.
In my opinion Halloween gets in the way of Christmas. I think it's fun to see what people can create and come up with in terms of costumes. I love having a warm bowl of chili and watching the trick-or-treaters come by for candy. I love actually having the festive candy in the house (and sneaking a piece or 5 here and there). I love everything festive about it. I just don't get into it as much as other people do. All that to say, I already have my Christmas music going and am counting down the minutes until we can launch our new Christmas Collection on Thursday, Nov. 1st. Mark your calendars. It's going to be good!

At this point, I think it's pretty clear that western wear is a huge trend for fall. Get the look with an updated cowboy boot like one of these:

We are THRILLED to finally share something we've been keeping a secret for months. Our shirts and tote bag are here! They've been a dream for years, in the works for months, and on our shelves for weeks while we've been preparing for this day. The shirts are available in three designs with a forgiving fit, slender sleeves, and the comfiest material ever. This is the shirt you will live in... trust us.
Oh, and who doesn't love a great tote? Catch all the extra things you carry around day to day in one spot (gym clothes, groceries, extra shoes, work stuff, etc). Consider this your one stop shop for Christmas.

Nothing screams fall more than a buffalo plaid cape and a hot cup of coffee. Bonus points if you add an over-the-knee boot and fringe details.

This past weekend, I decided to have a Sunday well spent loving people. Unfortunately, cold season is upon us. So, whether it's a friend who's under the weather or one who's simply down in the dumps, show them you care by dropping off a hot cup of soup. Let's be serious, is there anything better in the fall than butternut squash soup? Our Orca tumblers are the perfect complement to hot soup as they will keep it warm for hours on end (shop them here).
Here's your friendly reminder to spread love, be love, and allow yourself to be loved!
I used the "Blair" notecards to add a tag to the happy delivery (shop them here).

When considering what to buy for fall, we have to look at the emerging trends. While I try to stay away from investing in pieces that are too trendy, it's always fun to mix it up each season with a splash of something new. With inspiration from the 80s, the wild west, and Saville Row this season is definitely bringing the fun...
Why not mix sequins and western-inspired pieces? Or menswear plaids with a heavy teddy coat. The options are endless. Two trends to watch are the cowboy boot and heavy shimmer by way of metallics and all things sequins. Shop the look below.

Why are mornings so hard sometimes? Your eyes literally won't stay open. Your bed is like a magnet for your body and you just can't get up. It's a daily battle, isn't it? I struggle with it as much as you do. There are times when I feel like I'm only allotted one good nights' sleep per week, so the morning after a night of tossing and turning feels impossible to overcome.
I've rounded up the things that help me wake up, stay awake, and start each day on a positive note. Whether it's a daily devotional or a splash of cold water on my face, these are the things that work for me...

Nothing screams fall more than a touch of leopard. It adds interest to any outfit and can spice up even the most basic all black outfit. It also pairs really well with a killer red jacket. Happy Fall!

Pop the champagne... grab the balloons... it's Friday!
We're also continuing the celebrations of the new blog! We can't think of a reason not to celebrate this and the kickoff of the weekend.

I was recently asked to create custom notecards for an entire team of wedding and event planners. The owner wanted an illustration of the team together, and then wanted to separate the design to create personalized notecards for each girl. The result was a lovely looking group of ladies dressed in navy.
See more information on the custom process here.

Welcome to our new home!! After years of blogging on another platform, we finally made the switch to have all our BFP content on one page and under the same umbrella. You can still view our old posts by clicking here, but this will be the new home for the Brittany Fuson Blog.
Now that we've made introductions, let's talk about black tie affairs. With an invitation to a black tie wedding in the month of December, what do you wear? I want to wear something fancy and festive, but yet understated. What are your go-to sources for formal dresses? I'm all ears. It's out of the ordinary that I'm planning this far in advance, but the holidays always seem to sneak up on me. This is my attempt at being prepared (for once).

With a new season comes a new wardrobe. Why shouldn't that also translate to your morning coffee cup? It's hard to think about cozying up with a hot Pumpkin Spiced Latte in a summer-inspired cup. So, without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to Blair, Serena and Lily, our fall girls.
Not only are our 27 oz. insulated tumblers ideal for keeping your morning coffee hot for hours, they're also great for keeping a cup of soup warm until lunch or icing down your
favorite tailgate drink. Do I even need to elaborate on how they're the perfect gift? Fill one to the brim with candy corn (bonus points if you mix it with dry roasted peanuts for
the perfect fall blend), arrange freshly picked flowers for a friend in need of a pick-me-up, or grab that must-read book everyone is talking about and tie a bow around it. Consider
this your pat on the back because you just nailed the fall gifting game.
