For You: A Golden Collaboration Rises to the Top of the Wish List

It's no secret I live for my daily dose of the Super Elixir powder. I LOVE it and its alkalizing effects upon my body. Did you know that Elle MacPherson's brand has now teamed up with none other than Aerin Lauder to produce a double-dose of the much celebrated Super Elixir in a GOLD caddy? It's true. Which means I've gone to gift recipient heaven. Move this to the very top of my list, please. Quick note: it's limited edition, so don't wait to grab your gleaming gold caddy of nutritional wellness.


For You: The Valentino Arm Party of Your Dreams...

Hotter than hot. Valentino Rockstud cuff in black & gold. Helloooooo, must-have stocking stuffer. Since I love a good mix on my arm, I suggest you pair this beauty with its sister, the multi-wrap bracelet (with smaller golden studs & a tawny leather strap). The finishing touch, however, it the prized bracelet I long for... the fully golden Rockstud cuff you never knew existed until this moment. Stunning. The VIP arm party you of your very stylish dreams. 

For You: Fab Finds (Under $30) at Lulu & Georgia...


It happens every year. Always does. So very easy to shop for myself versus anyone else. Are you with me? It's hard to deny the allure of the amazing deals everywhere. Tonight's discovery was Lulu & Georgia's 25% off sale (yes, go get some of that) and the realization that for less than $30 you can have your choice of pretty pickings. Here are just a few of the lovely accents for the home you should consider ordering for that certain someone (perhaps that's you!). And don't miss the entire shop on sale. Happy (guilt free) holiday shopping ;) 


For You: The ONLY Gift You Really Want...

Let it be known... I'm willing to forgo all other presents for just this amazing item. Nina Ricci's faux fur leopard belted coat. Umm.... wow. The defined waist, the above the knee length, the super soft faux fur, fabulous. I promise you'll wear this classic piece for years and years to come. You'll be overly tanned in your Palm Beach condo in your 90's still rocking it. Trust me. Perfection, ladies!!!!

For You: Spoil Yourself...

Sorry. I can't risk a Christmas without carefully chosen goodies under the tree. Neither an you. Don't wait for someone to surprise you with those amazing goodies you desire. Indulge in a little luxury with personal gifts only you could think to give yourself. An edgy-chic keychain, a fab little set of ruffled undies, a spectacular fragrance guaranteed to liven up any winter day, a Saint Laurent leopard scarf (I die!) and the coffee table book you've been coveting for ages. Just get them. Enjoy them. Make sure you spoil yourself this holiday!

For You: Luminous Lobes...

Have I mentioned before that I love glamour? Perhaps once or twice? Ahh, yes. I thought so! Well these earrings from Alexis Bittar are super fabulous and - frankly - some of the most reasonably priced Swarovski adorned jewels I've see of late. I love the light-as-air look (much easier on the lobes) and the attainable price point (easier on the bank account). Don't you? The pave design and gorgeous golden tone metal will help you skip into the holidays in style.

For You: Gorgeous Brass Desk Accessories...

Put this entire collection of brass desk accessories on your the "Instagram essential" list. A golden ruler, clever oversized paper clips, that amazing pencil case (who cares if you actually use if for jewels instead?) and even a pencil should you choose to make a list of stylish to-do's for the day. Each desktop accessory is so photo-ready you might need to grab an entire set. Your legions of double-tapping fans will thank you.   

Lucent Desk Collection $24-68

For You: The Glamorous Quartz Paperweight You Covet...

You know you want this for those Instagram vignettes. You crave it on your desk. You need it on your nightstand. You want it in your life. Go ahead... grab yourself a small piece of energy-clearing quartz dipped in gleaming gold. For whatever reason we simply can't resist the glamorous simplicity of these objets, and why should we? Spoil yourself this with a small token of crystal and let those good vibes keep coming.

Crystalline Paperweight $18-65



For You: The Black Strappy Heels of Your Dreams...

What can I say? Girl's gotta have her shoes, right? I don't spend a ton on clothing, but when it comes to accessories I like to invest in timeless styles by quality brands. These patent leather beauties with gold chain detail are seriously fabulous. If you're looking for a "from you to you" gift, this pair Saint Laurent sandals certainly fits the bill.

For You: Shoe Lovers with Colorful Personalities Rejoice...

Tell the truth... you're not gifting these to anyone. These babies are all you. If your personality is lively and vivacious and won't take no for an answer, I've found the shoe for you. Wear it bold or pair with white or black... you know you'll get noticed in these babies.

For You: The Seriously Upgraded Instant Camera...

Say buh-bye to your instant camera that looks like an outdated child's toy. This one features a macro mode, high performance flash and a host of other advanced settings. Bonus: it doesn't look like an oversized doll accessory. Capture those special moments - and shameless selfies - in real time and have the photos (real, physical, sharable photos) to prove it. This sophisticated gadget arrives with a twin pack of film and is ready to use right out of the pretty box. Give yourself the gift of memories shared and captured with a high quality piece of portable tech.

For You: Faceted Crystal Candleholders...

It's taken ages for these to arrive at Anthropologie's site... but they are finally online! Each time I've visited the shop lately they have these amazing candlesticks on display in their dining room area. Aren't they lovely? It's a more modern spin on the standard crystal candleholder. I personally haven't used a taper in ages (or ever?) but these inspire me to amp up my holiday tablescape with their modern glam beauty. My pick? Two small and two tall taper holders for anchoring your entertaining space. The pillar holder would look dreamy on a bedside table or near the bath. Any way you choose, you can't go wrong. Super chic and surprisingly affordable. 

Crystal Ladder Candle Holders $24-$32

For You: Leopard + Leather+ Cashmere Gloves...

Ahhhh, Diane. You know how to please a girl, don't you? Imagine if you will a glove so fabulous, so luxurious, so practical that you simply must own a pair. DVF offers us winter gloves lined in cashmere, adorned in leopard print leather and finished with gold zippers. Don't mind if I do!
