The Naked Vault

No, I'm not talking about another celebrity photo scandal. I'm talking about this:

That's right. Urban Decay has decided to answer our prayers and put their most popular Naked beauty products into one magnificent gift package - The Naked Vault. The Vault comes with all three Naked eye shadow palettes, all three Flushed blush, highlighter, and bronzer palettes, three eye pencils, and three lipglosses. I'll just let that sink in for a bit.

If purchased separately, the items in this collection would total a lofty $372, however the Naked Vault will be sold for $280. That's $92 to spend on a hot new outfit to match the fantastic new going-out look you will create with all these beauty options. Now, $280 is still pretty high but luckily for all of us, a couple of gift giving holidays are right around the corner. Coincidence? Absolutely not. Thank you Urban Decay for making this holiday season merry and bright!

The Vault is available at UrbanDecay.com and select retailers.

Beauty Making the Leap from Stockholm to NYC

This past weekend I was thrilled to learn that one of my favorite Swedish beauty brands will be making its way to New York City this Friday, October 17th! & Other Stories found major success with its clean Scandinavian influence and simple beauty, both with their clothes and their beauty products. Although the NY store will focus on & Other Stories' soaps, perfumes, and lotions, all their products will be available to shop online.

& Other Stories' beauty products are fresh, light, and leave you feeling clean and rejuvenated. The scents are delightfully playful and easy to wear, or to fill a room with a scented candle. After all, any brand that gets the stamp of approval from Iris Apfel must really be a brand to watch! Ms. Apfel is featured on & Other Stories' website, offering her style and beauty advice and talking up the brand's move to the US. If you're not already a fan, her nod of approval should certainly make you want to try it out.

Check out the & Other Stories website to pre-shop the store and then head on over to Soho this Friday at noon to snag all the beauty products you've been missing since your stint abroad in Stockholm. At least that's what I'll be doing for the next few days… see you there?
