I love using simple white or kraft boxes to package gifts. And with a little bit of twine you can make this simple Rainbow Twine Box. Instructions can be found here.

[EAT] AMELIA ROPE CHOCOLATE

{Selfridges & Co.}

I'm not a huge chocolate fan but I do appreciate simple + clean branding and packaging. I love the kraft paper wrap and beautiful colored foil used on Amelia Rope Chocolate bars.

[EAT] BAKE SALE

{Bake Sale}

Bake Sale is a catering and delivery company based in Austin, Texas. I discovered it via Camille Styles when she posted about their homemade strawberry pop tarts. You can find Bake Sale's baked goodies at local coffee shops in Austin or you can even have them delivered to your home or office if you live in the Austin area.

[WEAR] CREWCUTS IN RUSSIA

{J.Crew}

Looks like J.Crew is having a little love affair with Russia. I adore these photographs of Russian ballet dancers wearing J.Crew cashmere sweaters. And the Crewcuts Study Abroad in Saint Petersburg, Russia is breathtaking. The cathedrals make for the prettiest backdrops. If only the boys could really go on these types of field trips I would be the first to sign up to be a chaperone!
