Smitten Saturday

Beauty Sleep Dolls, I wasn’t just educated in the power of the little black dress courtesy of Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Nor did I leave the film only with a desire to spend countless hours gazing longingly and lovingly upon the breathtaking baubles displayed at Tiffany’s. Non, there was something else that I took away from Audrey’s glamorous, beatnik character; and that was an appreciation for sleep masks.

I know, I know…it’s best to allow the skin to breathe come nightfall; but there’s something quite enchanting about perusing an ambrosial little mask during your moments of slumber, which has led me to seek out one of my very own. The question is…which one? Should I channel my inner Hepburn via Fred Flare’s Holly GoNightly Sleep Mask? Invoke visions of cupcakes from New York City’s Magnolia Bakery with the dainty Lily Satin Sleep Mask in Light Pink from Mimi A La Mode? Or hope for my princess-inspired dreams to come true courtesy of Loretta’s Intimates Mary Green Princess Sleep Mask? Decisions, decisions…how do you get your beauty sleep lovelies?

Do You Believe in Magic? You know me, loves…I’m obsessed with all things fantastical. I quote Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland in real life situations; and to a certain extent I have stars in my eyes – at least in terms of imagination. So why wouldn’t I fall head over heels for a cosmetics company that sports one of my favorite mythical creatures – a unicorn – as their mascot? While I typically embrace a neutral palette in terms of makeup, Lime Crime is my new obsession. Bright, somewhat impractical yet completely playful colors with names like Cosmopop, Styletto, and No She Didn’t mingle upon ones mouth; while knock-em-dead shadows known as “Magic Dust,” and harboring titles such as Pink Poodle, Shoe Addict, and Dragon Scales hover about ones eyes to truly make your pretty peepers pop! Don’t be shy, kitty cats; it’ll be our little secret…do you believe in magic?

Parcel Post I don’t believe that there is any phrase more magical than the sublime “mail call!” Oh, I quite understand that it’s merely two little words announcing a delivery, but it’s the thoughts that infiltrate your mind at the thought of what the delivery holds that has the power to send giddy shivers up and down your spine. Will it be for you? What is it? Clothes? Jewelry? A gift from a secret admirer? Or, less chichi, the one that often finds its way to my doorstep – textbooks. Sorry for getting sidetracked my pets…nothing beats getting mail, plain and simple. Ergo, my petite delivery-loving heart is completely spellbound with Parcel, a whimsical little shop straight out of Montclair, New Jersey which specializes in darling inspiration boxes full of crafty surprises that bring out the creative mademoiselle within.

For the Francophile there’s the Paris Is for Lovers Theme Parcel. For the Cinderella-loving girl longing to attend a Masquerade Ball there’s the Magic Theme Parcel. For the wannabe princess there’s the Faerie Wonderland Theme Parcel. But that’s not all; there are many other variations of the splendid parcel, enough to make the heart of anyone and everyone skip a beat. Was that the doorbell? Perhaps there’s a parcel for me!
