As advocates for small businesses, The Scout Guide editors are continually scouting their communities for local finds to share and celebrate. With their fingers on the pulse, they are also excellent sources of unique recommendations. Recently, we caught up with The Scout Guide Orlando editor Jaleh Benner to find out what she’s really excited about these days. Here, she shares her current obsessions, from chic wallpaper perfect for a home spruce up to sweet pajamas for little ones to what she hopes to find under the tree.
1. WHAT I’M GIFTING
Flower Power Clutch from WKND WYFR // “‘Tis the season to shop local! Most on my list are easy to shop for, but sometimes finding a gift for my mom or mother-in-law can be a bit of a challenge. This clutch checks all the boxes: it’s stylish, useful, and something they would never think to purchase for themselves.”
2. WHAT I’M DRINKING
Oatmilk Latte from New General // “It’s no secret that I love a good cup of coffee, and I adore this latte from New General. The magic is definitely in their spectacular beans, which are available to order through their website along with lots of other goodies.”
3. WHAT I’M COVETING
Diamond and Gold Feather Earrings from Be on Park // “Quick, someone phone my husband! I’m loving this unique pair of earrings from Be on Park and I think they would be perfect wrapped under my tree. But truly, everything they carry is stunning.”
4. WHERE I’M GOING
Palm Beach for the Launch of The Scout Guide Palm Beach, Volume 1o // “I love any excuse I can get to scoot down to Palm Beach, so I am super excited to visit for fellow TSG editor Stacey Leuliette’s momentous launch party for her 10th volume in mid-December.”
5. WHAT I’M DECORATING WITH
Wallpaper from Generation Royal and Eclipse Light from 1010 on Orange // “With so much time spent at home over the last year and a half, I have definitely been on a sprucing up jag. Generation Royal is a new favorite. I’m positively obsessed with their wallpapers—the only challenge is figuring out where to use them! 1010 on Orange is an old favorite, and I adore the sculptural details on this eclipse light.”
6. WHERE I’M SHOPPING
Tugboat and The Bird // “[Children’s shop] Tugboat and The Bird is here to make little ones’ dreams come true, and your life easier. Currently I am stocking up on the most adorable pajamas for my little girl, but their inventory doesn’t stop there. And they ship the most beautifully packaged treasures anyone would be delighted to receive.”
7. WHAT I’M WEARING
Jungle Animals Tapestry Maxi Dress from The Grove // “I don’t know what I’d do without The Grove to dress me! This holiday, I’m excited to wear their Jungle Animals Maxi Dress. Being in Florida, we can wear breezy dresses year-round.”
