Dolce & Gabbana has outdone themselves this time! For the holiday 2014 season, Dolce & Gabbana has launched a beautiful collection of make up aptly named the “Make Up Collector’s Edition.” This fabulous collection offers exclusive casing which is ideal for gift-giving; or for the collector like me! The beauty products in Dolce & Gabbana’s holiday collection are classic pieces which are iconic in their own right.

The collection includes collector’s editions of Dolce & Gabbana’s Bronzer, Illuminator, lipstick in “Real Red,” Perfect Mono Eye shadow in “Pure Bronze” and “Pure Gold,” nail polish in “Lover” and a fabulous special edition of “The One.” This entire collection is limited and will only be available for a short time. I am so thrilled to have a piece of it!

The One” is one of my all-time favorite fragrances. I have gone through a few bottles of it already, so this special edition version of The One is exciting! The nail polish in “Lover” is a fabulous cherry red which is timeless, and ideal to keep in one’s nail polish collection. I am also a huge fan of Dolce & Gabbana’s “Illuminator,” so this fabulous special edition version features the imprint of an ancient coin is thrilling!

The ancient coin imprinted on the Illuminator and on the Bronzer represents a journey of discovery Dolce & Gabbana have gone through in Ancient Sicily and the Greek culture; where the designing duo takes much of their inspiration. The profile of Greek God Athena is imprinted on the coin. She represents wisdom, courage, civilization and intelligence. She also personifies the voyage to Sicily’s roots and captures the precious characteristics which have helped define the entire “Make Up Collector’s Edition” for the holiday 2014 season.

Holiday Gift Guide Santana Row 2014

The Holidays are here! This means it is time to find that special something, for that special someone! My favorite place to shop for the holidays is Santana Row. The Row has everything I need in order to complete my holiday list. I love popping into Best Buy to find something electronical for the teenagers and college students on my list. If I am not sure what to get, it is a great place to purchase a gift card for that picky teen on my list.

Sometimes the perfect gift is edible! I love heading into Kara Cupcakes or Cocola and filling up a pastry box with delicious goodies. Not only is a pastry box filled with pastries, macaron’s and more, perfect as a hostess gift, it doubles as a holiday gift! Love that!

Of course, the kids on my holiday list love the fashion-forward clothing and accessories at H & M. It is a one-stop-shop for finding fabulous frocks for the kids which look like they are right off the New York runways. 

Shopping can be tiring, so Santana Row is the ideal place to shop for the holidays since there are so many places to rest! Not only can you enjoy a fabulous meal at restaurants such as Maggianos, Veggie Grill, Sino or Village California Bistro; and you can treat yourself to pastries at Cocola or Kara’s Cupcakes! 

Since holiday shopping can be tiresome and sometimes confusing, I have chosen a few of my favorite holiday gifts from Santana Row and listed them below. I hope you love them!

Geluxury slippers review

Pictured: c/o Geluxury slippers in “Cuddle Cow”

One of my biggest complaints about my feet is how my heels crack so easily! Nothing ruins a pair of Manolo Blahniks more than a pair of cracked, ugly heels. Ugh! I have tried using various brands of foot cream but nothing ever works miracles. So when Geluxury contacted me to review their Polygel Geluxury Slippers, I jumped at the chance!

Geluxury slippers make foot moisturizing simple. Instead of messing with different foot creams, which can leave a sticky film on your foot, Geluxury slippers have a rubber lining that is infused with therapeutic botanicals and ceremides including mineral oil, avocado oil, canola oil, jojoba oil, grape seed oil, soybean oil, olive oil and ceramides. This rubber lining is called “SmartGel” and I have decided it has an IQ over 170! 😉

After wearing Geluxury slippers for about half an hour a day, over the course of one week, my cracked heels went away! I couldn’t believe it. No buffing, no messy creams and no scraping! How easy is that?!

Geluxury slippers come in two fashionable and fabulous colors; “Cuddle Cow” and “Leopard.” Priced at $49.95, they are cheaper than a spa visit and perfect as a holiday gift. Love that!

Geluxury slippers can be found online
