BEST BEAUTY AND LIFESTYLE PRODUCTS
I’ve been hearing a lot of talk from girls in the office about how excited they are for next month’s box to be delievered from Birchbox. Had to see what all the fuss was about for myself.

WHERE TO ORDER ALL YOUR BEAUTY BASICS AND HOUSEHOLD NECESSITIES
You can find ads for Soap.com in the subway during your daily commute, which is how I first heard about it. I think this is a great idea, especially for those harsh winter days when you don’t want to trek to the grocery store in the snow to lug back all those heavy bags.

WHERE TO RENT YOUR LOOK FOR THE EVENING'S EVENT
Going somewhere swanky but don’t want to drop a lot of dough on a dress you’ll only wear once?

WHERE TO GET YOUR ACCESSORIES
Complete the look with some of Baublebar’s trendy pieces.
