Guilty Indulgences January 2011

To highlight some of my favorite things, I am starting this post once a month. These are items I have bought, not review products. If you have a product that you would like me to review and consider for feature, please contact me via the "Contact" Tab.

Buxom Lashliner, $15, SEPHORA
When I bought this, I had no idea it was going to help condition and thicken my eyelashes! I apply it with a flat, tapered brush to my upper lids, and it glides on like a gel. Easy to use and it goes on smooth, but it lasts ALL DAY! I have tried so many liners it's not even funny, but for price and value, I am going to be sticking with Buxom.

Tiffany & Co, Pendants and Necklaces, $100-250
I'm not a huge fan of following silly trends and buying logos (although some I do like), so the heart-shaped tag charms are not my thing. But Tiffany has several really cute pendants, such as The Pineapple, Mittens or my favorite, Round Initial Pendant

Always wanted a Birkin bag, or a classic Quilted Chanel....but can't afford to shell out $20,000? Check out Avelle. This is the most kick-ass idea anyone has ever had in fashion. You pay to "borrow" handbags, jewelry, etc...keeping them as long as you want. Pay by the week or the month. Switch bags as often as you would like. If you want to buy a bag, then the amount of money you have paid to rent it, counts towards your final price.

Relax Riesling, $14-20, Relax Wines
This a great tasting wine, and affordable on any budget. A light, sweet wine, it pairs well with some snacks, a backrub and a lazy Friday night.

Welcome to Ikea meets Crate & Barrel, presented as CB2. I got a catalog in the mail for them, and they have some really unique pieces for decorating in a minimalist or modern home. My favorite deal is their dinnerware. They have some great sales going on their plates and glasses.


  1. Relax wines... I like that.

  2. Wow! So I love RELAX wine and I use Buxom lashliner as well. I also love the CB2 catalog, super cute things.

  3. I have never heard of ANY of these things!
    Well, Tiffany of course, but that's all... I have to go check this stuff out.
    Is it to early to "relax"?

  4. Buxom is a fabulous brand. They also make a gluten-free mascara, another fabulous thing if you happen to be intolerant of gluten. I'm going to Sephora next week and will have to check out the liner. Thanks :)

  5. Your review makes me want to try Buxom Lashliner. If only Asians had semi-existent eyelashes! :)

  6. Girl, wear it like eye liner! It would look great on "Asian eyes". I totally wish I wish Asian. I am too whitebread and boring.
