Gift Guide Week: Jet Set!

What I REALLY want this year is the freedom to travel. From an international getaway to a cross-country road trip...I'll take it! Here, a few travel-friendly items to help get me on my way:

Not exactly the cutting edge of fashion, but this warm, lightweight jacket folds into a travel pillow. Genius!

I seriously will NOT leave home without my Somme Institute face products. 
(And the set comes with an SPF, too!)

Love this fun, patterned dopp kitt. It's perfect for piling full of products.

Dying for some easy, kick-around boots like these

Pad & Quill's super cool, super sleek Kindle cover that's handmade using traditional book binding methods. (Gotta help keep some form of book-creating alive, right?!)

A go-anywhere, go with everything bag.

And, the perfect lip palette for the perfect red lip

Miu Miu Resort 2012

I can’t stop looking at the Miu Miu Resort 2012 campaign images. The jewelry, model (one of my favorites, Guinevere van Seenus) and the photographer, David Sims, are a perfect mix!

The Opposite of Winter...

I'm loving the warm, rich makeup and nail colors (and clothing!) in this I-D story. Revisiting these spring and summer-like images full of pink, purple, yellow and red will definitely get me through the long months of chilly weather!

Ebony Fleur

My über talented friend Ebony Fleur has just introduced her killer new Mineralize jewelry line. Inspired by the precise geometry of raw minerals, Ebony used a variety of materials (bright angular plastics, Japanese silk cord, and heavy chains) to create her line of edgy new pieces. Check them out here!

Versace & Prince

I attended the Versace for H&M fashion show this past week and it was amazing! The clothing, the atmosphere and of course seeing Prince perform. Definitely try to get your hands on some of these pieces and if he ever tours again, go see Prince!!!!
