Mint Green Love

1). Marc by Marc Jacobs Crossbody Classic Q Natasha Handbag ($368; bloomingdales.com): Super cute, crossbody bag. I cannot waittttt to get this for myself. I love Marc by Marc Jacobs handbags and this color is way too amazing to pass up.

2). Smashbox Always Sharp 3D Liner in 3D Pacific ($20 for 0.01 oz.; sephora.com): I actually don’t have this liner, but I need to pick it up. I love Smashbox’s Always Sharp 3D liners (they’re one of the best), and this color is the perfect mint green — It’s described as a “seafoam mint green.”

3). J. Crew Patent Narrow-Buckle Belt in Pale Mint ($34.50, on sale from $39.50; jcrew.com): A cute, skinny, leather belt that can add a sweet pop of color to an outfit.

4). Mint Green Ceramic Pottery Heart Dish by DarriellesClayArt Shop on Etsy ($14; etsy.com): The store Darrielle’s Clay Art on Etsy has some beautiful ceramic pottery dishes in mint green (as well as other colors) that can be used in a bunch of different ways. This one would be great for jewelry, candles or any other small items.

5). ZOYA Nail Polish in Dillon ($9 for 0.5 oz.; zoya.com): A pretty, full-coverage green mint metallic nail polish with silver shimmer in ZOYA’s wonderful “5-Free” formula.

6). Mint Scalloped Jar ($12.99; worldmarket.com): This super cute mint-colored jar would look great in the kitchen, bedroom and even the bathroom.

7). Kendra Scott Rosemary Floral Earrings in Mint ($77; laylagrayce.com): Beautiful gold metal earrings with natural seafoam magnesite gemstones.

 

Yayyy spring is here and, even though we still have had a few whacky, cold snow days here in New York, the weather has generally been getting warmer and yesterday was especially beautiful! I feel like springtime comes sooo slowly and when it’s finally here we only have about a month (sometimes even less) of actual “spring” weather before the hot days of summer arrive.

With the beautiful spring weather comes my birthday (yippeee!) in April, and, the best part, is a change in wardrobe with all the pretty spring colors that adorn everything from fashion and accessories to makeup, housewares and decorations. I love spring colors and one of my favorites is this pretty mint green.

The mint Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag (above) is what inspired this post, since that is exactly what I want for my birthday (from my wonderful mom). I tried to keep this post as short and sweet as possible — you can click any of the links next to the product names above for more information 🙂

Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas: Cute Beauty, Fashion & Home Decor Products

Last-minute Valentine's Day Gift ideas in home decor, fashion and beauty, including Too Faced Sweethearts Blush, Too Faced Candy Bar iPhone case, Marc by Marc Jacobs heart notebook, Kate Spade earrings, pink infinity scarf, pink heart waffle maker, heart candle, Elizabeth & James Nirvana White perfume and Chloe Roses de Chloe perfume. Sugarglow Beauty, Fashion, DIY, lifestyle, etc. blog. www.sugarglowbeauty.com.
1). Marc by Marc Jacobs Bookmarc Heart Notebook ($18; marcjacobs.com): Super cute red notebook with the Marc Jacobs heart logo. I’m writing constantly and go through notebooks like crazy so I’m definitely picking this one up for myself 🙂
2). Elizabeth and James Nirvana White Eau de Parfum Rollerball ($22 for 0.34 oz.; sephora.com) I have to admit, I’ve been a fan of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen since their “Give us a mystery” days. I don’t care what anyone says, I love them, always have and always will, so I was super excited to learn that they had debuted their first-ever fragrances, part of their Elizabeth and James line. I just ordered Nirvana White, but Nirvana Black is also very pretty. The Nirvana White perfume is delicate and feminine with a blend of peony (one of my favorite scents), muguet (Lily of the Valley) and tender musk.
3). Kate Spade New York Fairgrounds Candy Stud Earrings ($48; bloomingdales.com) I was looking up earrings at Bloomingdales.com the other day and came across a bunch of cute new ones by Kate Spade. This specific set is gold-plated in an adorable candy shape. I wear studs more than any other kind of earring so I’m definitely going to be buying these and/or the pink heart pair (#10).
4). Modadorn Accessories Nautical Lightweight Chevron Infinity Scarf ($9.99; amazon.com) I was actually searching for “pink scarves” on Amazon when I came across this super affordable one in my favorite chevron pattern. This scarf comes in 20 different colors (color pictured is “Pink/Ivory“) and it actually got really high reviews — Amazon customers said this scarf was “perfect” and even though it is sheer, there is a lot of fabric, so it’s not chintzy-looking.
5). Freshware 6-Cavity Silicone Mini Rose Cake and Soap Mold ($9.95; hsn.com) I came across this baking mold accidentally and I’m so glad I did — impulse buy, much? Well, I would say 90% of my buying is on impulse so it’s not like that makes a difference anyway. This amazingly adorable silicone mold creates mini rose-shaped cakes, muffins, brownies, corn breads and even DIY soaps. I love it!
6). Too Faced Candy Bar Palette & Phone Case ($25; ulta.com) I’ve been meaning to get this little two-in-one palette/iPhone case since it came out, so I finally ordered it. I was putting it off for so long because I’m really not a huge fan of Too Faced’s eyeshadows. I love a lot of their other products, but their eyeshadows just aren’t my favorite. The biggest selling point for me is the awesome, exclusive candy bar iPhone case which I can’t wait to use.
7). Babycakes Nonstick Waffle Maker ($37.99; Amazon.com) Ahhh I love this! If only I made waffles more often … well, maybe I will if I buy it. It’s a hot pink mini waffle makers and it includes 50 wooden sticks for waffles … on a stick! Awesome!
8). Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Candy Glow ($30 for 0.19 oz.; sephora.com) I’m in love with the Too Faced Sweethearts blushes and they’re the perfect Valentine’s Day beauty gift. I find these blushes to blend extremely well and I love the color selection. Too Faced also just came out with two new colors — in addition to “Candy Glow” there is now a darker pink/mauve shade, “Something About Berry,” as well as a bronze-y shade, “Beach Peach.” I own Candy Glow and Something About Berry and I’m pretty sure I’ll be picking up Beach Peach sometime soon.
9). Chloé ‘Roses de Chloé’ Eau de Toilette Spray ($95-$120 for 1.7-2.5 oz.; nordstrom.com) The original Chloé scent is my go-to perfume, and this new version plays off the original so I had to pick it up. I think I might actually like this one better. It contains beautiful notes of fresh cut roses, Bergamot, Rose essence, Magnolia Accord, White musk and Amber.
10). Kate Spade New York Be Mine Enamel Stud Earrings ($48; bloomingdales.com) The last item is another pair of Kate Spade earrings. There are so many more that are really cute but I couldn’t list them all so I just chose two. These are also gold-plated with hot pink enamel hearts. I sense another impulse buy coming on right now.

Happy Valentine’s Day! And remember, it’s okay to indulge and spoil yourself every once in awhile. Especially for those of you who hate this “made up” holiday 🙂
