Clearly we take a whole lot of photos around this place and we often test looks out by shooting them on an iPhone, just to see how they look before we go pro. Our next TBD “Gift of the Week” is this amazing cover! It’s both cute AND functional, which we love. I got one last week while we were in Toronto and I couldn’t wait to share it! Some of you may or may not realize that the “volume up” button on an iPhone can be used to snap a photo when you’re using the camera app. The the shutter button on this camera cover sits right on top of the “volume up” button and that’s how it works. There’s also a button over the “volume down” button, so you can do business as usual while sporting this cover. If you drop your gadget a lot, worry not– it comes with a place for a camera strap. Let’s be real– it’s not like this phone cover actually makes the photo better, it just makes you feel a little more chic while shooting!

I love a foiled lip all year round, but especially for holiday parties or New Year’s! It’s a really festive look that’s very sultry and coy. There are metallic lipsticks out there but nothing really that gives you a foiled look like eyeshadow minerals over lip gloss (and this way you can use something you already own!). If the idea doesn’t sound or look pretty to you, it’s one of those things that you should actually try first before you dismiss it… you might be surprised how sexy it is. Heres’s how:  (more…)

Oh my! Sometimes you spy something so cute, you’ve just got to share. This is definitely one of those times. So in LOVE with these little macaron trinket/pill boxes! I thought it would be a great idea to get your girlfriends one of these colorful confections and pair it with a bottle of your favorite hair growth pills. They’re gorgeous and could obviously be served alone as a very chic way to carry whatever tiny things a lady might need.

Try not to die too hard over these gorgeous stocking stuffers like we did! Once again Kate Spade collaborated with Lipstick Queen’s creator Poppy King (one of our idols!) to create these three stunning colors, one for each holiday soiree! And don’t forget New Year’s Eve…

We’ve been really into lipstick crayons for a few years now and love it that Kate and Poppy whipped these up because the color payoff is rich and party perfect. I’ll be gifting a box to my sister and three besties (hope they’re not reading this)… You can grab one for yourself, I mean your friends, here.
