The Holiday Kitchen Sink Post

Can you believe we are deep in the throes of the holiday season already?  It feels like we were just starting 2017 and within the blink of an eye, we are preparing to ring in 2018!  And what a year it has been! 


First and foremost, I'm sure you all are aware of the exciting news out of Clarence House- May 19th is the big day for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to tie the knot!  Their engagement photos are divine- they look so happy!

The souvenirs have already started to whirl off the conveyor belts... my personal favorite is the Emma Bridgewater engagement mug.  Still available to order, Emma Bridgewater makes lovely ceramics to commemorate all the happy occasions within the Royal Family.  This may or may not have found its way into my Christmas stocking... 

Some of the other ladies in the Replikate community already have their tickets to Windsor- the service at St. George's Chapel will be absolutely exquisite, I'm sure! 


And speaking of Windsor, Netflix has the second season of the Crown online, and it's an absolute gem!  No spoilers, of course, but it's definitely just as fabulous as the first season, which swept all the awards last year!

I can't wait for the second season of Victoria to air in early January in the US!  (If you haven't caught up on the first season, it's available on Amazon Prime's streaming service, as well as online at's streaming Passport).

We've had a few engagements from the Royals in the last few weeks- Kate looking positively glowing as she finishes out the second trimester of her pregnancy, and Meghan seeming like an absolute natural on her first walkabout!

And NYC-based fashion blog Man Repeller did a fun piece on Replikating... you might just spot a familiar face in the article... Click the image below to read!




Lastly, a couple of sales, restock alerts, and other items to note:

2. Everlane has Meghan's Day Market Tote in Cognac due to be restocked Jan. 4!  Add yourself to the waitlist here (but keep checking back- they have been occasionally allowing pre-orders).
