Shop Secrets ft. evy + ro

Hey cuties and welcome back to the blog!  I hope you’re having a wonderful month so far; I can’t believe we’re so close to Christmas already!  Today, I have an adorable, local shop to share with you and I can’t wait to see what you think!  It’s the perfect addition to all that holiday shopping we’ve been up to recently.  Keep reading to find out more!

The shop I’m featuring today is in Chesapeake City, Maryland and it’s called evy + ro.  evy + ro is a shop that’s a jack-of-all-trades.  They have clothing, they have home decor, they have jewelry… they have everything!  I came across it when I was wandering around the shops in Chesapeake City and I’m so glad I did!  Their style is very shabby chic and falls right in line with the trends that women are all about these days!

In talking with Lauren, the owner, I learned they’ve only been open for a little over a year but you’d never know it!  They have so many fun, cute items in the store, it seems like they’ve been around for years.  Lauren opened the shop after realizing she had an eye for decorating on a budget and she wanted to share that with the community; how cool!  I’d say she’s done a great job because I wanted to take home everything I saw!

When I was in the store, I purchased a hanging white, paper star for my apartment (you can see a little bit of it in the top right corner of the second photo) and I also got a string of firefly lights to put inside it.  It was extremely affordable and I’d never seen anything like it before!  That’s how a lot of their items are, cute and unique!

Another section of the store I loved was their bath and body section!  They had all sorts of sprays and lotions and soaps and they all smelled so good!  I also had to include a photo because I was dying over the lightbulb covered with the wire basket.  That’s so rustic and wonderful and I want to make one for myself!

Well, that about wraps it up for this week’s post.  I hope you’ll check out evy + ro if you’re visiting the area because it’s definitely worth the trip!  If you go, let me know in the comments and be sure to say hi to them for me!  Talk to you next week! 🙂

Jewelry Hour ft. The Makery VA

Hi everyone, thanks for coming back to my blog!  In this week’s post, we’re going to dive into one of my absolute favorite jewelry companies, The Makery VA.  Keep reading to find out more about this wonderful brand!

The Makery is owned by Kaitlyn Mullan and she’s just the cutest!  Her mission behind the company is to use handcrafted jewelry to remind us that we’re tremendously beautiful and loved; how sweet!  We were so carefully created by our God and she wants to highlight that through her art form – making jewelry.  Her goal is to remind each and every one of us of our worth through carefully handcrafting jewelry that accentuates our beauty and to remind us of the jewels that we truly are!  After hearing all that, I’m sure you can imagine why I’m so obsessed with her and her brand!

Before we get more into the pieces I’m sharing with you all today, she’s so graciously given us a discount code to her Etsy shop!  If you enter allisoninwonderland where it says “apply shop coupon code,” you’ll get 15% off your order.  Now, let’s get into the pieces so you can get to shopping! 🙂

The first two pieces are both necklaces!  As you can see in the photo above, not only are they great for layering together, but they both stand out wonderfully on their own.  Both are so unique and I just love how they add so much to a simple outfit!  The shorter necklace is called the Howlite Beaded Bar Necklace and the longer one is called the Tassel Necklace.  These pieces are under $30 and are so worth it!  Handmade and beautiful?  I don’t think you can get much better than that!

The next two pieces are the ones I’m most excited to share because you guys know that I love rings!  They’re my favorite accessory so it’s so easy for me to fall in love with them and that was definitely the case with these two!  The ones I’m wearing in the photo above are called the Half Moon Ring and the 6mm Opal Ring.  The Half Moon Ring is actually my favorite piece that Kaitlyn has ever made and I always love a good opal ring so my heart was bursting when I opened up my little package!  Both of these pieces are also $30 or under (which is a steal for opal) and I couldn’t be happier with them!

I think any of these pieces would make such perfect birthday or Christmas gifts for someone in your life, especially since you’ll get 15% off your order!  If you’re interested, head over to The Makery’s Etsy page to check out the rest of her collection.  As always, let me know in the comments, or tag me on Instagram at @allisantmyer, to show me what you got!  Have a great rest of your week and I’ll see you next Tuesday for a brand new post!

Holiday Gift Guide for: HER

Hi everyone and welcome to the beginning of the holiday season here on Allison In Wonderland!  I’m so excited to be able to share my first gift guide post with you today!  Throughout the rest of the post, I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite gift ideas (of all different price ranges) for the woman in your life, whether it be your mom, your sister, a best friend, or a significant other.  I hope you enjoy!

1.   DIY Spa Package.  This idea is so easy!  Just head to Lush (or your favorite bath and body store) and pick out a few items; you can’t go wrong!  Grab a bath bomb, a bubble bar, and your favorite lib scrub scent and you’re good to go.  She’ll love it!

2.  A baking kit and recipe box.  This idea is for the woman in your life who is always in the kitchen, making something delicious!  Rifle Paper Co. has gorgeous recipe boxes that can beautifully accompany a winter-themed baking kit!  You can find a relatively inexpensive baking kit at Target or Walmart.  All you need are some cute, festive cookie cutters and a dough roller and your girl is set!

3.  A blanket and a candle.  I have to say, this idea is the easiest (and the coziest) out of all of them!  If you know that she loves to snuggle up for movie marathons, this is the gift for her.  Find the perfect comfy blanket and a winter-scented candle and your gift is complete!

4.  Jewelry!  This one’s a given.  Most girls love getting jewelry during the holidays but make it a little funky this year!  Try to pick out items that are a bit different than things she usually gets and that will be really special to her, like this ring and earring set from High Point Supply Co.!  Another jewelry company that I absolutely love is The Makery!  Everything is handmade and her pieces are just beautiful.  Some of my favorites for the holiday season is this fern necklace, these wishbone studs, and an opal ring!  All of them are under $30 and will add so much to your holiday outfits.  If you decide to order from The Makery, enter allisoninwonderland at the checkout where it says “apply shop coupon code” to get 15% off your order!  What a deal!

5.  Letterboards!  I think this is such a neat Christmas gift!  Letterboards have really become trendy this past year and it’s the perfect gift for the interior design-minded girl.  If you purchase this board from Letterfolk, you get the board plus 290 characters (letters and numbers) so you’ll be able to write out whatever you want!  It’s the perfect apartment/home accessory!

If you purchase a candle or jewelry (or anything!) from High Point Supply Co., enter allisoninwonderland at the spot at checkout that says “enter affiliate code here” in red.  By doing this, we can give towards ending the injustice of human trafficking and shop for a cause!

That’s all for this gift guide, I hope you got some creative ideas!  I recently shared some more gift ideas on CandidlyKeri’s blog, so be sure to check out her site as well!  Next week will be a Holiday Gift Guide for: HIM, so be sure to check back if you’re looking for the perfect gift idea for the man in your life.  Have a great week!
