This gorgeous bouquet wrapped in burlap arrived from Farmgirl Flowers last week, compliments of a sweet, thoughtful designer. The garnet, coral, and violets are so gorgeous together and the evergreens and berries scream holiday. My favorite element? The stems of cotton.
The jewelry site touts the piece has been seen on Kathie Lee Gifford, Kim & Kourtney Kardashian (do they each have one or do they share?), and Shay Mitchell. Time to update that description folks.
The $198 statement bib necklace is made from intricate gold feathers hand sewn in India to silk organza cascade. I think I need one. Will the sellout be as swift as a Kate Middleton L.K. Bennett nude pump or Meghan Markle Club Monaco dress? Not taking the chance.
Maapilim, a Tel Aviv-based grooming and beauty brand, was in touch earlier this year, about its male-focused, Israeli-made products, along with its art exhibit/campaign, Flowers Are Manly.
They sent a couple of samples for me to try. Maapilim Pacific Soap is delicious in the shower. It contains argan oil, rosemary oil, and sage oil, and smells like grapefruits. Maapilim Wedgewood All Purpose Oil contains jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, and scotch pine oil, which helps reduce redness. Guys can use it on their beard, though it’s also meant for skin.
As for Flowers Are Manly, you can imagine my interest/ I fell head over heels for these flower-infused portraits of vulnerable manly figures. Although they are not hiding, per se, they remind me of the obscured portraits of women I love so much.
