Ashleigh and I are thrilled to be one of the six blogs involved in this year’s “The Good List: Glam Gift Guides for Good Girls.” We gladly joined in on the fun to select our favorite gifts for all you lovely gals. We’ve selected five fabulous items in home decor, fashion, food, beauty and a wild card.
Hope you enjoy our selection for all you Glam Good Girls!
As our wild card selection, we knew hands down that we wanted to feature something from the amazing collection of artist, Noelle Palm. She is a dear, dear friend to both of us, and one of the most creative people I have ever met. She is a painter and crafter, jewelry maker and designer, sculptor and photographer…just to name a few things. This iPhone covers represents just one of her charmingly chic and refreshingly energetic pieces – a perfectly girly pick for any fun and flirty gal you might know. The above cover is one of six lovely designs available for purchase online – each only $35!
I adore this rug! It is sweetly feminine and romantic and showcases the most beautifully subtle shades of pink and peach. Designed by talented Interior Designer, Holly Hickey Moore, this rug design recently won second place in an Austin design competition hosted by local showroom, Black Sheep Unique. I had the great privilege of working alongside Holly for several years, and was thrilled to stumble upon this lovely rug! It immediately popped to mind when searching for our perfect Glam Girl home décor item. As it is brand new, it has not yet made the Black Sheep website, but check back through the end of the week, or feel free to contact Damien Clarke directly for pricing and additional image details.
When it comes to skincare, Ashleigh and I both rely on Shannon Eichler of About Faces Skincare. We have been blessed to know Shannon for many years now not only as a trusted and gifted beauty guru, but also as a true friend. Located in Versi Salon on Broadway in Alamo Heights, Shannon has been keeping the ladies of San Antonio looking glamorous with healthy, glowing skin. Her services include an array of facial treatments, waxes and sunless tanning. She is a licensed professional with PCA Skin, a leading skincare line recognized by many physicians and scientists. Products are available for purchase online – and right now is the perfect time to buy gift cards of any increment. We highly recommend Shannon and her services to all our friends in and around San Antonio!
I recently came across the stunning jewelry of Margaret Elizabeth jewelry. Her work is remarkably elegant and graceful and has the most exquisite sense of antiquity and timelessness. I am excited to share some of her pieces as our fashion find for all of you glamorous gals. Her color and stone selection is so very striking and her designs are simply glamorous. Easy choice. Sadly, we could not decide on one piece alone. Above we’ve selected: (1) Chrysophase Marquis Pendant ($385); (2) Ophelia Cocktail Ring Chrysopase ($148); (3) Chrysophase Pave Drops ($318). If you’re looking for something for an upcoming holiday party, or just want to feel extra glamorous for a night out on the town, there are many other selections on her website that are sure to dazzle!
I was given Peace Meals, several years ago as a birthday gift. At the time I did not cook, but quickly turned to it when I started dating my husband, hoping that I might trick him into thinking I had even the slightest clue in a kitchen. Girls, this book is awesome! Every recipe I have tried has been delicious and surprisingly simple to make! I cannot recommend it enough for each and every good and glamorous girl in your life…maybe even some of the guys! If you want a teaser preview, we’ve done a few DIYs from this book, including Pumpkin Bread Pudding and Raspberry White Chocolate Muffins. You may buy this book online from Amazon for less than $25 – a steal of a deal for the foodie in all of us.
