first up, i’ve been meaning to tell you about this fabulous new moisturizer from caudalie. my love for the brand is well-documented, so it should come as no surprise that their latest product addition has quickly made it to the top of my must-have list. when fall hits, my skin instant rebels and invokes a dramatic change in its moisture demands. their new quenching sorbet-creme is every bit as decadent as it sounds, and is making my traumatized skin extremely happy this season.
i can be relied upon to fall hard for absolutely anything that lynn from satsuma press sends to my inbox, and her newest additions are no exception. these new birds of a feather cards ($14/4) are so simple and sweet, they’d be the perfect all-occasion card to have on hand. they’d also, come to think of it, make an excellent denomination-free holiday card, which i’m always in the market for. and then there’s her 2011 letterpress calendar ($40) – every year, i lust after one of these, and every year i move too slow and they sell out. i’m determined to get my order in in time this year!
speaking of beautiful things that landed in my inbox this week, a dear friend let me know about this amazing clustered crystal necklace from emma stine ($99), and i literally gasped when i opened the photo. i can’t help but envision this dazzler getting heavy-duty use over the holidays, of course, but i’m also picturing it living quite nicely with a men’s tank and a boyfriend blazer, or a slouchy grey tee and a slim cargo pant. i know statement necklaces are on their way out, but this one seems entirely stylish enough to survive the trend.
and last but not least, i can’t leave for the weekend without letting you all know that today marks the first day of gilt‘s third anniversary celebration! to kick it off, they’re hosting a seriously impressive giveaway of a trip to NYC for you and two friends, including dinner at le cirque, massages, tickets to the met opera, and your own personal stylist, who will pull together an amazing ensemble for you and your buds from the treasure troves at gilt HQ. so, yeah, well worth entering. oh, and they’re also offering free shipping monday and tuesday on orders over $50…so that’s exciting too.
have a great weekend, everyone!
