Don’t have a tree up yet for the HOLLADays? My #4 pick this HOLLAday season is this super easy DIY tree!!

My #3 HOLLAday pick is near and dear to my heart – cause there’s nothing I love more than being creative! Spoonflower is most DEFINITELY my newest obsession, as it gives me and other creative minds the opportunity to create their own CUSTOM fabrics, wallpapers, and gift wrap too!! Check out this adorable headband my girl at Sea Wee Babies made for me from her own ORGANIC line of custom printed pineapple fabric!!
Personally, I LOVE this gift as I developed my love for interior design from creating doll houses with my mom as a kid. You can install your own wallpapers, carpets, and decor. That’s why I’ve made it my #2 HOLLAday pick for things that make me HOLLA during this season! I just love that this is a modern version of my old favorite! PLUS – it’s on sale from Joss and Main: http://bit.ly/1yOGox7
You ever been so moved by one thing it changed your life forever? Me too. My hands down FAVORITE American street artist is none other than the incomparable Aaron De La Cruz, and I’m lucky enough to call him friend too! That’s why my #1 HOLLAday pick are these limited edition earrings that come in 3 different colors – so I can wear a piece of the streets with me everywhere I go: http://bit.ly/1DHMU0D
