If you're a Glee fanatic and plan on traveling to London anytime soon, you might want to scoop up the new Glee-themed fragrances that are at Boots now. There are three scents out, Gold, Purple, and Red, each retailing for 10 quid, or about $16. Stateside, we're about to see a whole new line of Glee nail polish, so maybe the perfume will be here next. The color-coded scent thing doesn't appeal to me that much, though. I'd rather see Rachel RaspBerry, Honey (Quinn) Bee, and Apple MarTina, or something similarly goofy but fun. What do you think? If this perfume comes to the US, will you be interested in giving it a sniff?
I have high expectations for products from Juicy's pet line; while oftentimes they're a bit out of my budget, the fashion company continues to give us things to talk about and give away! This Winter collection is no exception with my favorites being this stunning rich caramel bag and a cheeky "Bitch Is Back" collar.
Click through the new products and let me know which would make your pup's holiday wish list when you're done.
I've admired the Mascot Puffer Jackets ever since they came out, and the latest ones are even cuter in two new color combinations! This red style reverses to black and a blue plaid to a deep green but both are filled with down and extra snuggly for snowy romps.
If you want to take the preppy pattern to the max, there's also a complementary leather leash and collar for bonus coordination. I'm leaning towards the red tartan since it would make a subtly festive Christmas present, too, but see for yourself in the widget below.
If you have an unhealthy obsession with couture and fragrance, let me introduce you to your next fixation: Six Scents. We've talked about these designer/nose collaborations before, but now it appears that pairing six of the fashion world's most dynamic designers with six of Givaudan's most gifted perfumers is going to become a regular thing.
This year, the teams created fragrances centered around the theme "Innocence to Experience," crafting scents that recall the most definitive moments of their journey to adulthood. Sales of the fragrances will help raise money for War Child, a charity that helps children whose lives have been torn apart by conflict, so this isn't just art for art's sake, either.
Technically, all makeup is really coed, but most brands market specifically to those of the biologically female persuasion. Now, though, there's a new brand out called Enter Pronoun, designed by makeup artist Natalia Ramirez to be totally sex- and gender-neutral.
I really like the idea, and it would really be nice if Mr. Bella could get some of his beloved guyliner in a stick that wasn't way too small for big dudes' hands. The line also supports emerging artists and features original work on its packaging, which sounds cool, and Natalia has committed to using her studio space to "mentor gay teens lacking acceptance and support." If the brand becomes available online or gets wider distribution, will you be interested in buying some products that aren't "just for girls"?
The Lanvin collection for H&M has been highly anticipated, and now we're getting an initial view of what the line's signature lipsticks will look like. The packaging is super cute, and from the ads, it looks like we can expect a pretty reddish-pink shade or two. This is the first time Lanvin has put its name on color cosmetics, so I'm excited to see what they'll do. To see more of the collaboration before it drops on the 20th, check out the fashion lookbook.
I love a cool shirt and these have a cool cause, too. Much More Than Me supports October's Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and aims to remind people about all the shelter dogs needing homes and the importance of rescuing these pups. Messages with furry-faced reminders are printed on each tee so you can even educate others with your own fashion choices.
Twenty-five percent of shirt sales go directly to shelters and rescues nationwide. In fact, you can choose the organization yourself when purchasing. How cool is that? See some of my favorite designs in the widget below.
Ooh la la! LeSportsac debuted the Pet Carrier ($98), and I love the hearts pattern. While rumors have floated about the company going to the pets for a while, the doggone style (12 by 17 by eight inches) is finally ready to ship for small creatures across the country.
A long strap allows you to carry it or sling it over your shoulder, and the six-inch leash keeps pup facing in the right direction all the time. If you'd like to make the carrier double as your bag, there's a slot for an ID card and a zipped pocket in the front for a few essentials. Are you a fan?
One of three new designs in the William Wegman for Crypton Fabrics collection that launched last week, the Multi-Plex is definitely the poppiest. The style comes on both pet beds ($120) and pillows if you're into the whole matching thing.
Also debuting is a Gameboard pattern (in five hues) and Show (in six). These patterns come on beds but also on mess mats and (my personal favorite) the Throver, which have your floor and furnishings covered, respectively. Are you feeling these new designs?
Here's a new addition to the annals of quirky products: Flossbox ($24/pack of six), a credit-card-shaped dental floss holder with a mirror on the back. The catch is that for a little extra, you can put whatever you want on the front, from your personal information to a design you upload yourself.
I can see orthodontists leaping all over these to use as business cards, but they could also make good favors for a post-trick-or-treating Halloween party — or at the end of any kind of big barbecue/foodie shindig. If you're a frequent flosser, does the Flossbox appeal, or would you rather just stick with slipping a tiny spool of the stuff in your purse?
