There’s nothing better than a cute and sexy camisole to either make an outfit stand out or help you feel your best underneath all the glam. This one is by Betty and John, two designers from Australia. They bring the Mushroom Camisole to the closet, and we’re glad they did. Made of satin and lace, it features adjustable straps for the perfect fit. And we’re digging the color—it’s neutral and fabulous with just about anything. A good staple piece for your wardrobe that also offers a little indulgence.
Sometimes it’s the simplest accessories that make a look significant. Such is the case with these Mother of Pearl earrings by Charming Sam. These dangles have a gold kidney wire closure and a gold lip shell tear drop shell and a round disc shell. They’re elegant enough to provide a simple compliment to a cocktail dress, and funky enough to complete your Boho chic look.
Keep your lips lush and tinted with Pocket Pal mini benetint lip gloss/lip color by Benefit Cosmetics. It includes a rosy lip and cheek stain with a clear gloss on the opposite end. Two wands total for application. Wear them together or separately – regardless this is smudge-proof color and gloss that’s tiny enough to stash in your pocket, and just plain old cute.
Cuffs are all the rage lately and it’s clear to see why when you sport a Hayden-Harnett cuff such as the Celina Signature Cuff. This stylish cuff offers a bit of rugged style that’s still feminine enough for anyone to sport. Comes in five splashy colors and a few prints with a brushed-gold finish on the metal hardware. Pure leather adds to the quality, as does the included gift box. It adjusts to fit – and looks darn good once it’s on.
Philosophy sure knows how to make some pretty luxurious products, and The Ultimate Kiss at Sephora is no different from the rest of the flavorful line. But this lip gloss promises the famous Kiss Me lip balm in red and pink peppermint. This stuff is sure to get your lips soft and lush, perfect for those kissable moments. Made with kiwi, Vitamin E and almond, you will definitely be at the top of the kissable list once you smooth this all over your perfect puckers!
Balance is necessary everywhere in life, especially on your face. That’s why we love “shu by Ai” High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil two-in-one cleanser and make up remover. It cleans skin to the core and balances it as well. Impurities will be a thing of yesteryear after using this cleansing oil, which cleans but keeps essential oils in your skin. Fresh faces, c’mon – show them off proudly after you use shu by Ai.

Made in four lengths and out of a multitude of materials – silver, oxidized, silver and gold fill, auburn, vermeil, silver and 14k gold and 14k gold – this eye-catching dazzler doesn’t scream “bling!” but shows that you know where to find goods just as amazing. The perfect accent for evenings when you want to radiate elegance.
Why trek to a tropical beach to enjoy a massage when you can have one wherever you want? In this stressful day and age, a good rubdown is a must-have and this is the oil for it. Sunset Massage Oil by Oils of Aloha comes unscented or in a refreshing Hawaiian scent with macadamia oils in a tropical breeze fragrance. Bring the beaches, and the relaxation, home with this essential massage oil that will take you straight to the Aloha state, if only by a thought.
SNÖ means snow in Swedish but is also a famous jewellery company in Scandinavia. Snö of Sweden was first established in 2002 and their mission is to provide the discerning consumer an extra touch of beauty to their everyday.

The jewellery is produced in their own production plant in China and is designed by Lena Näslund, the founder of the company. More pictures after the jump.
Perfumes are tricky. Even when you follow the “pulse points” rule, it’s easy to overdose. And despite their pretty packaging, large spray bottles often leave a lingering cloud behind them. Achoo! Meet Ryoko, which means “travel” in Japanese. This smooth pebble fits snugly into the palm of your hand and slips easily into your pocket. It flaunts its lovely scent and color much like a good luck charm. Charming, indeed.
