Hint, Hint...

The best Easter baskets are filled with more than beaucoup chocolate yummies. Au contraire my little preppies, most girls appreciate a well thought out and personalized basket so I thought I would lend a few suggestions for all mummies, boyfriends, aunts and sorority sisters.

The pièce de résistance of this prep basket is this Lilly pencil set from Taylor Papers that I discovered at The Monogrammed Nest while on a blog scouting expedition. One for Emma, one for Hilary, one for moi...

How perfect is this T3 Tourmaline overnight "pink edition" hairdryer found at one of my favorite sites, ballbeauty.com, where they offer free shipping and have the best prices anywhere.

I am a huge fan of the Mason Pearson comb, also found at ballbeauty.com, and have amassed quite a collection. They are a preppy classic and make fantastic gifts. Those in the know...

Although, I have enough Kiehl's lip gloss to take me to my grave, I couldn't resist picking up this latest edition today in French Rose. Very sweet and shear.

A girl I used to work with always looked as though each individual lash had mascara so delicately applied and, fortunately for me, she was willing to divulge her secret. Maybelline's Lash Discovery has a mini brush that has the most amazing effect and I have made believers of my sisters and nieces.

Everyone can appreciate Mattie Stepanek's message of hope and peace. If Mattie's book of poems, Heartsongs, was on every nightstand the world would be a better place.

Now, about that chocolate...

Kindness of Ginny at The Monogrammed Nest and also my bff Kimba Howlin for introducing me to Heartsongs.
