Our Boujee Babes Holiday Gift Guide

It’s the holidays and sometimes you gotta splurge. Whether it’s for yourself, a coworker or dear friend, here’s a round up of some of my favorite luxe gifts that make me feel like a million bucks! Also head to glamour.com to see some of my other holiday beauty picks!

Venus et Fleur 

Venus et fleur rosesThese flower arrangements are magic. Beautifully packaged roses in every color that are real and they last a year! I told you they were magic. I have the four rose style from Saks  but they have loads of different arrangements on their site. And they smell like a fresh cut bouquet! I’ve had mine for two months and they still smell as beautiful as the day I got them. No watering or maintenance needed. So good!

Thompson Ferrier Candle

I’m big on candles (you should see my collection), Thompson Ferrier candles go a step beyond! They are works of art and so edgy, I love them all!!!!! But if I had to choose the elephant, skulls, pineapple, and buddha heads are my favorites! That’s actually not true, every time I’m on their site I have new ones I’m lusting over. You can check them out at Bloomingdale’s, Barneys and Shopbop, but I also saw certain styles discounted on gilt.

Creed Windsor Fragrance Returns as Royal Mayfair

For any of you House of Creed collectors there’s some exciting news! One of the much sought-after vaulted fragrance, ahem Windsor is officially being released with a new name Royal Mayfair. Honoring the Duke of Windsor for which the fragrance was originally commissioned for in 1936, this is the exact formula now available to the public.

Creed WebsiteOne of the biggest perks of my job is getting to work with brands that I LOVE! And recently I had the opportunity to host an event for the fragrance house, Creed in celebration of their newly re-launched website, CreedBoutique.com.

Saks Launches New Fragrance Floor

Saks Fifth Avenue Fragrance Floor

This morning, I stopped by Saks Fifth Avenue for the official unveiling of their new fragrance floor. While the location has not changed, just about everything else about the space has. For starters ten of the brands (including Creed, Hermes, Bond No.9 New York, Diptyque, Le Labo, Panhaligon, Kilian, Acqua di Parma, Cartier and CHANEL) are now separated as if they we’re their own boutique, allowing the brands to use their counter space to show off their distinct personalities.

Here are some headlines that caught my attention this month:

* Francois Nars launched his latest book 15×15 (only 1500 copies!). Get it while you can.

* This weekend, Bernard and Ruth Madoff’s government auction brought in over $1 Million. The proceeds will go toward reimbursing victims who lost their investments in the Madoff scam.  PETA wanted Ruth Madoff’s furs to be donated to the homeless, to keep them warm this winter.

* Privately owned, highly regarded (just ask Prince Charles and First Lady Michelle Obama) fragrance brand Creed will open it’s first doors in the US on Madison Avenue in December.

* Tim Burton’s exhibit officially opens today (and will be up until April 26) at MoMA.  Burton’s influence on film and art has had a heavy impact on the fashion industry.  WWD reported last week the Dollywood trend for Spring 2010 is no doubt attributed in part to Burton’s adaptation of Alice in Wonderland premiering March 5, 2010.  I’m so excited!

* Gossip Girl’s costume designer Eric Daman will launch his latest book, You Know You Want it: Style-Inspiration-Confidence, on December 15. Available on Amazon now to pre-order. You know what I want? That dress Serena wore to Rufus and Lilly’s wedding. Oh and Jenny’s sequence dress that she’s wearing in the group shot on their website, and-I’ll stop. I could play this game all day.

* James Franco joins the cast of General Hospital for 2 months. Drool!

* Kate Moss’s motto, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels”.  Well she must feel great!

* Concerns/rumors of Sammy Sosa’s sudden change of skin tone being due to a skin infection or byproduct of alleged steroid use have been put to rest. The former Chicago Cubs slugger was reported saying “It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some.” Keep that cream away from me! Pictures HERE.

* After 25 years, Oprah is ending her run of the Oprah Winfrey show in 2011.  But considering the debut of OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) slated to launch in 2011, perhaps a new talk show will be in the works.

* Tomorrow, November 23, Bergdorf Goodman unleashes their holiday window!  You know where to find me.
