Harry Potter-Inspired Sweaters

Have you guys seen Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows yet? It’s full of magic, a little kissing and the most amazing sweaters. Seriously, Harry, Ron and Hermione wear the types of sweaters that make you want to snuggle by a fire in Vermont and eat maple candy… just like these:
Light & Lofty Fair Isle Long Sweater, American Eagle ($55). Extra long so that spot in between the bottom of your sweater and your jeans won’t hang out!

A Thankful Thanksgiving!

Get out the cranberry sauce and gravy! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! But, let’s forget about the pumpkin pie and stuffing for just a moment. As the holiday’s name indicates, tomorrow is a day to give thanks (and not just for food).
It’s very important to take a moment and give thanks for all the little and big things in our life. So, Melissa and I are dedicating today to this idea! Here we go:

3 Glitter Knockouts

Holiday season is in full effect! That means turkey, stuffing, trimming and… glitter!
I think everyone has a penchant for glitter — it’s an instant mood lifter, and who doesn’t like a little sparkle? <insert jazz hands>

Here are three beauty products certain to introduce a little pizazz into your life.

Holiday Gem Collection, Sephora ($9 each). This limited-edition holiday line has seven shades full of sparkle and shimmer. Only Gold For Me (pictured) has chunky and micro gold glitter, which looks great by itself or as a top coat.

Temporary Tattoos That Look Real

Tattoos are more popular than ever — and they’re even more removable these days. But really? You need to be SURE you want that Celtic knot/butterfly/heart/cascade of stars before you go under the needle.
Or, you can just turn to Temptu, a company that offers temporary tattoos with 2-5-day wearability. The best part? They look totally real — not like the Cracker Jack box variety. With a unique, cosmetic-grade ink formula in true-tattoo color, the tattoo applies cleanly and evenly. Change up your ink every few days. It’s like a new accessory!

The Girly Chic Kit ($25) includes the above-mentioned stars and butterflies, while the Zen Chic Kit ($25) is more flowers and fans and the Tribal Chic Kit ($25, pictured) has abstract style. There’s even a limited-edition Dereon Kit by Tina Knowles ($16), and you can see Beyonce all inked up here.

Indie Crafter Du Jour: Orglamix

I love the idea of custom makeup. It’s like affordable couture! Orglamix will blend a color just for you, a one-of-a-kind hue based on an image of the color you’re looking for. She also boasts “lots of finishes to suit your mood: sparkle, shimmer, duochrome or metallic.” Cool!
The other great thing about Orglamix? All of her products, including that full-rainbow range of lip colors, pictured ($10 each), are completely natural. That means they’re made without parabens, sulfates, petro-chemicals or other synthetic crap you don’t want on your face.
