Free, Printable Gift Tags!

November 24, 2012 § Leave a comment

Hi everyone–hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to spend time with your family and friends! I headed home to South Jersey and had a peaceful trip, ate a lot of turkey and hit the malls at 9 pm Thanksgiving night with my niece to tackle some early Black Friday deals. We had a successful shopping trip, I got everything back to DC, stocked up on giftwrap, bows, etc. and as I sat down to wrap I realized I forgot to get gift tags! I ran to CVS to see if maybe they had some that would suffice and they did not, so I took to the web. Good old Martha never lets me down! I found a ton of adorable gift tag ideas here. She even had some great wine labels and the best part about it all is that they are all FREE! Yay! Who doesn’t like free?!

As always, thanks for reading and have fun shopping and wrapping and preparing for the upcoming holidays! XOXO

I am the everyday girl and A Fresh Coat team up!

November 20, 2012 § 1 Comment

Hello, everyone! Well, Thanksgiving is almost here and I’m sure you’ve all put your turkeys in the fridge to start defrosting (at least I hope you have!), have your meals planned and your  guests confirmed. Today I wanted to share something I am thankful for this year–some amazing friends that started a very empowering, informative and fun website called I am the everyday girl. Jane and Jen live in RI and wanted to create “a movement to inspire, encourage and just plain love the everyday girl” and that’s exactly what they’ve done on their website. Recently, we’ve partnered up with them to do a piece called Home Economics, where we’ll be sharing some fun tips on home decor and design for the everyday girl (check out a screenshot of the awesome page they’ve designed, below). I hope you check it out, subscribe to their mailing list and as always, thanks for reading! XOXO

Jonathan Adler coming to Georgetown

November 19, 2012 § Leave a comment


Just a quick little post to keep all my DC people up to date! Jonathan Adler is almost ready to open its doors in Georgetown! I walked by yesterday and tried to get in but they said they were putting the finishing touches on the store and they would be open “tomorrow or the next day.” So, if you aren’t familiar with Adler’s designs or if you’re his #1 fan, go check out his new store in G-town! It’s right off M and Wisconsin. Yay! I can’t wait!

Holiday Sales Are Here!

Hey everyone! If you haven’t noticed, it seems as though yesterday (or at least that’s when I was at the mall and noticed) was the official day the malls and shops everywhere broke out their holiday decorations and started playing Christmas music. Funny how it coincides with me thinking about what I want to get my friends and family for the holidays! I already have downloaded a Black Friday app on my iPhone and I’ve been getting updates as stores release their sales (I know, I’m nuts!). Here are a few sales going on now that I thought you might enjoy! As always, thanks for visiting A Fresh Coat!
