Meilily Product Pick & Photos! Bird Vine Jewelry Stand from Urban Outfitters!

I’ve been on the lookout for nature-inspired jewelry stands – you know, the ones shaped like twigs and branches – ever since I discovered the variety of jewelry stands available at UrbanOutfitters.com. I recently picked up this lovely Bird Vine Jewelry Stand from Urban Outfitters, and love it! It is made of sturdy metal with an antique gold finish, and has branches, leaves, and two cute birds – all to hold and neatly display all sorts of baubles.

Meilily: Aveda Comforting Tea

Meilily Product Pick! Aveda Tea!

If it is anywhere as cold where you are as it is here, you may enjoy curling up and drinking lots of hot Aveda Tea. This is one of my favorite teas out there from one of my favorite beauty brands, Aveda. While I will admit it’s a little odd to be drinking tea from a company that is best known for its natural haircare and skincare products, I have gotten past the point of caring. Aveda Comforting Tea – and they only make one kind – is a unique tea that, I’ve heard, can get even coffee lovers hooked!

Aveda Tea has a warm and naturally sweet flavor that is not overly herbal or astringent, and it instead manages to taste nothing like the typically overdone flavors of mass-market caffeine-free tea.  It tastes more like a unique beverage that fits somewhere between asian loose leaf tea, mellow kona coffee, and Guiness. Ok, perhaps it is far from tasting anything like Guiness or coffee, but I would say Aveda Tea is to tea as Guiness is to beer. It’s just › Continue reading

Product Pick: Sula Paint & Peel Nail Color Mini Sets

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009 | Nail Polish, Photos, Product Launches, Product Picks | Comments Off on Product Pick: Sula Paint & Peel Nail Color Mini Sets

meilily-sula-paint&peel-nail-set-pale-vintageMeilily Product Pick: Sula Paint & Peel Non-toxic Nail Colors!

Sula Paint & Peel nail colors are fun and safe non-toxic nail polish alternatives that come in modern and fun shades. Now, Canadian company Sula has come out with fantastic new mini sets that allow you to try three different shades of peel-off Paint & Peel nail colors for little more than the price of one.

I highly recommend these cute new Sula Paint & Peel mini sets, especially if you are new to these non-toxic peel-off nail paints. You get to try three Sula minis for $12.50 (instead of $9 for one full size)! I’d also suggest getting one of the two available top coats ($9) to extend the wear longer than a few hours.

Meilily Product Pick! Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation!

I don’t know why it has taken me so long to rave about Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation (LSF)! Armani LSF has been one of my favorite liquid foundations ever since I first picked up a bottle in Europe, and I just re-purchased another bottle during a recent Neiman Marcus Armani beauty event.

Let me warn you that the money spent on a bottle of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation could probably feed a small village, but fortunately this foundation › Continue reading

Meilily Island Style Pick:  Wood & Bead Bracelets

Meilily Island Style Pick: Wood & Bead Bracelets

Found this totally awesome wood and bead bracelet in Kauai, and just had to bring it back with me. As an accessory, I think it will go exceptionally well with brown, tan, and white outfits.

The stretch beaded strands of this bracelet are feminine and exotic. I also love how the wood piece is lightweight, tropical, and fresh, yet ever-so-slightly chunky.

Meilily Product Pick: Stylish Hi-tech Jawbone Headset

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009 | Photos, Product Picks, Style and Technology | 1 Comment

Check out Meilily’s product review and exclusive Jawbone headset photos …

Meilily: Jawbone Headset Black

Meilily: Jawbone Headset in Black

Meilily says: Hi-tech hands-free headsets can be stylish too!

While geeky gadgets don’t typically fit in the realm of fashion and style, Jawbone headsets made by Aliph are changing that.  While other bluetooth headset makers have started targeting fashion-conscious female consumers with girly colors and blinged-out carrying cases, Jawbone is really the first headset to truly turn heads, both male and female, based on good product design alone.

Jawbone headsets originally rose to stardom in the gadget world for their patented NoiseAssassin noise elimination technology (once developed for military use), however the original Jawbone headsets were a bit large and clunky. The second generation re-designed Jawbone headsets (a.k.a. Jawbone II) were smaller, sturdier, and used different ear hooks, and unfortunately they started making them in market-pressured metallic-frost colors like Rambling Rose and Babbling Blue. IMHO the basic black Jawbone looks just fine!

*Now, Aliph is launching their newest re-designed Jawbone headset, the Jawbone PRIME, available (in candy colors) in stores May 2, 2009 or by pre-order online.

Does Jawbone NoiseAssassin Technology Work? › Continue reading
