The Best Bathrobes — Annual Guide 2017

It’s peak bathrobe time because it’s getting COLD and we never buy nice bathrobes for ourselves; they’re always that awesome gift from someone who LOVES you. So, we did a ton of new research, pulled our fourteen favorites, tested four front runners at our offices and awarded this year’s Top Pick to the Amigo Robe from Abyss (Maxwell’s personal pick) and the Atelier Ace X Wings + Horns Robe from the Ace Hotel Shop, which ran away with the office vote. Both are great, have different styles and price points. Check them all out below and tell us your faves in the comments.

Here’s Where Procrastinators Can Still Get Holiday Cards in Time for Christmas

Were you the type that put off working on term papers for weeks just to stay up ‘til 4am writing them the morning they were due? If so, chances are good you’ve probably also waited until the last-minute to decorate for Christmas and Hanukkah, and send off those holiday cards. Well, for all you procrastinators out there we’ve got a major PSA: today is a big cut-off day when it comes to ordering (and receiving in time for Christmas) your holiday cards from a number of favorite online card makers (for those of you that prefer design-forward site Moo, know that their cut-off was yesterday, unfortunately).

As extra enticement to order, a number of these sites are also offering huge last-minute sales. So really, what other excuses do you have to put off ordering all your office cards, party cards, and family cards?

Here’s the breakdown:

A Cool California Modern Boho Abode — House Call

“My husband and I bought our house when I was pregnant with our first-born nine years ago. It was a foreclosure and previously owned by someone who was trying to "flip” it. We did not like the design choices he made but we loved the neighborhood and luckily, choosing to buy in Venice, California has been a great investment,“ writes blogger and designer Kristin Dion. "Over time, we have made several improvements. We replaced all the doors, added hardwood floors in the bedrooms, remodeled the kitchen, added bi-fold doors and a deck off the kitchen/dining area and built-ins in the family and living rooms. Our next project is the master bathroom!”
