Thale Blanc Gifting Event

It felt like Christmas morning when I opened a box from Thale Blanc and found one of their chic Pandora Pochettes inside. What is a pochette, you ask? It is a must-have for any woman who owns an iPhone, blackberry or mobile phone. The phone pochette was designed for the fashion-conscious busy woman. 


The pochette is made of distressed lambskin that is buttery soft. It has a strong magetic closure and a compartment in the back to hold bills or credit cards. The chain and lambskin handle is detachable and there is a hook on the back so the pochette can be attached to a purse or tote if desired. The lambskin neckband can also be detached leaving a chain handle which can also be worn as a belt. How clever!


The Pandora Pochette measures 3.75" wide by 5.75" high and has a drop of 22". Additional chain handles are available to create a custom look ~
Short Pearl Chain Gold $96.
I LOVE this accessory! Although it is designed for phones, I found it great for holding keys, lip gloss, id and money when going out. Ideal for traveling, shopping, going for a walk, or whenever you don't feel like carrying a handbag. 



Available in five colors, the Pandora Pochette in Mustard retails for $208 at ThaleBlanc.com and arrives in a luxuriously soft velvet pouch. Be sure to follow Thale Blanc on Twitter and Facebook for additional contests, new product info and specials.


Attention Shoppers! One of you are going to be the lucky recipient of a Pandora Pochette!! Oh Yeah! Our new friends at Thale Blanc are gifting one reader this sweet luxury. RV: $208

Oberon Design Gifting Event

I've been patting myself on the back for discovering a gem of a company called Oberon Design and kicking myself for not finding them sooner. Oberon Design is a family-owned business that has been creating GORGEOUS leather and pewter artisan items since 1972. Each item is made-to-order ~ in the USA!


They are a self-sufficient company that is generous with their employees and their community. We found their customer service to be outstanding and they could not have been more gracious to us. We were sent four items, two of which will be shared with a lucky reader. ☺ 


First, the beautiful Bold Celtic Large 3-Ring Organizer ~ 
I've never given much thought to how an organizer is made. I can't imagine how many hours it takes to handcraft one of these custom pieces. A gorgeous leather cover contains week-at-a-glance inserts for 2012, year planner for 2013, address pages, note pages, and a things-to-do section. Completely refillable, this is an investment that will last for many years.


Pewter button and leather tie closure ~



The Large 3-Ring Organizer measures 7.5" by 9.5" and is available in different colors and designs. Retails for $118.


Next, we received the Endless Love Knot Necklace ~ The pewter pendant measures 1-3/8". Hand-cast slider beads allow for adjustable lengths on this handmade leather cord. Retails for $27.50, very reasonable considering the amount of time and labor that goes into crafting each piece.



We also received this beautiful Pocket Organizer in the River Garden design~


This would make a perfect Christmas gift for clients, co-workers, staff, bosses, students, professionals and anyone who wants to keep all their important dates and info at their fingertips. The color and design choices make this truly a custom handcrafted gift. The pocket organizer measures 4" x 6.75" and retails for $50.


Last, but not least, the Eternity Knot Necklace


I love the open, airy feel of both the necklaces and that they are not heavy. The unique adjustable leather cord allows you to change looks depending on the top you are wearing. All of Oberon Designs' Pendants are made of Pure Pewter. The Eternity Knot Necklace retails for $27.50.


The workmanship on all these products is exquisite and flawless. Included in the package was a logo notecard with attached charm that reads "We hope this charm finds you well in all your travels and adventures". How can you not love a thoughtful company? To checkout all of Oberon's lovely designs, visit OberonDesign.com, be sure to connect with them on Facebook and Twitter for news, specials and fan-only discount codes.


I know you're all anxious to know what the elves at Oberon Design have made for this event. I'm excited to share we will be sending one lucky reader the Pocket Organizer and the Endless Love Knot Necklace which we received courtesy of Oberon Design. ARV: $77.50.

The Sassy Apple Review and Giveaway

I thought it would be fitting on Thanksgiving to feature a brand that makes yummy treats. The Sassy Apple sent us this beautiful basket to introduce us to their company ~


The basket includes two chocolate-covered pretzels, a classic apple and a Peppermint twist lollipop. The goodies are carefully displayed in a festive cardboard container filled with lime green shred, wrapped in cellophane and tied with a red bow. The holiday gift basket arrived with not a sprinkle out of place.


A large juicy Granny Smith apple is dipped in rich creamy caramel and then coated with Milk and Swiss White Chocolate. Tied with a green ribbon and adorned with ice crystal bead, it is as pretty as it is delicious. The pretzel rods are covered in white and milk chocolate with red and white sprinkles. I love the sweet and salty combination of chocolate-covered pretzels. The basket retails for $22 plus shipping and is available at EatSassyApples.com.

Other basket designs are available including my fav entitled Zebra Out ~

I can think of at least a dozen peeps on my Christmas list who would be thrilled if one of The Sassy Apple's baskets arrived on their doorstep. I know for sure one of you will be when it arrives on yours! Yep, that's right our friends at The Sassy Apple are gifting one reader a holiday basket of their own. ARV: $22.

Cattiva Cosmetics Review and Giveaway

We were contacted by Cattiva Cosmetics to see if we would be interested in trying their chic beauty products. They sent us their Belazza Blush/Bronzer Mineral Duo Refill and Square Crystal Compact.



Inspired by Italian romance, Cattiva is the first high fashion anti-aging cosmetics line in packaging that is covered in jewels. The products arrive in sleek black shiny boxes and were wrapped in black tissue and tied with a red ribbon.



I've never used a bronzer so had a lot of fun experimenting with this product which can be used either as an all over face color or for contouring. When I heard they were sending this, I wondered if the color would work for me. I first swirled a blush brush over both the blush and bronzer and lightly dusted it all over my face. I don't normally use a bronzer because I'm afraid of looking "fake" but could definitely use a drop of the sun-kissed look in the Fall and Winter. Cattiva's Belizza Blush/Bronzer added a natural healthy glow. I then tried just the blush and although it didn't appear to be "my color" in the compact, it complimented my skintone perfectly. The Blush/Bronzer Mineral Duo Refill is talc and paraben free and retails for $28.


The black plastic compact is encrusted with crystals on the top. and screams Hollywood! Ultra chic glamour girl styleThe compact can be filled with any of the foundations, eye shadow quad or the blush/bronzer. The compact retails for $14. I'm very happy with both these products and can't wait to try all of Cattiva's line.
Visit CattivaCosmetics.com online and sign up for their e-news to receive 20% off your first purchase and free shipping on all US orders. Connect with Cattiva on Facebook and Twitter for new product announcements, specials and glam giveaways.


Speaking of giveaways, The Cattiva team is gifting FIVE Chic Luxuries' readers their Dolce Diva Lip Liner in Nude, ARV: $20, Total ARV: $100.

Murad Review


The folks at Murad sent us two products from their Age Reform Line to try. First was Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for Eyes. This product is designed to give a more youthful appearance by increasing hydration around the eyes to smooth fine lines, firm and awaken the eye area.
It is a light, non-greasy consistency that has a cool, slightly tingling sensation. I probably used more than I needed, but it felt great and I do think it helped diminish the lines around my eyes. A .5 oz jar retails for $60.

Next was Intensive Resurfacing Peel made with Dr. Murad's latest beauty innovation, Durian Cell Reform, a blend of glycolic acid and durian, an Asian superfruit used to help prolong skin's youthful state and in this product's case, may even turn back time.


I received 4 treatments, each .17 oz tube contains just enough product for a single application. I have to admit I was a little hesitant to try this after reading the instructions which call for leaving the product on for 10 minutes and warned for sensitive skin, you may only be able to leave it on a few minutes because the product is intense. This was also my first experience using a peel and I have heard some horror stories from friends how their skin peeled for days and looked like snakeskin after using another brand's product.


Although I have sensitive skin, I was able to leave the product on for the full 10 minutes with the first application with absolutely no irritation. My skin felt smooth after using it, but I didn't see any significant improvement as far as my wrinkles. The second application also remained for 10 minutes and there was a noticeable difference in the lines around my eyes; they were definitely smoother and not as deep or pronounced. YAY! This is the first product I can recall seeing a marked improvement in just 2 applications. Paging Dr. Murad: Please report to our office with a lifetime supply! ☺ Seriously, the good doctor may have discovered an alternative to Botox and plastic surgery with his Intensive Resurfacing Peel. By the way, my skin did not peel at all! {This could be due to using the Clarisonic twice a day, there just isn't much dead skin left to slough away}. A box of 4 treatments retails for $45 or 12 treatments for $165. Available at Murad.com.


Don't miss Murad's Holiday Offers including a 20% discount on gift sets, Free Shipping and a Free 6-piece Holiday Kit with a $70 purchase. Keep up with the latest products and special offers by following Murad on Facebook and Twitter @MuradCares.


Very special thanks to the folks at Murad for sending us these fabulous products to try.

Gallery Direct Gifting Event

Every year at this time, I start thinking about redecorating a room in my home, something about the colder weather brings out my artsy decorator side. It's amazing how adding a few accent pieces ~ pillows and throws, or a new piece of artwork can change the entire look and feel of a room. 

I recently connected with Gallery Direct, a company that offers limited edition giclee artisan prints at very competitive prices. 


Gallery Direct is the largest limited edition fine art publisher, printmaker and artisan framer in the world. They do it all ~ they find the artists and the artwork, market, and recreate the art themselves.

The folks at Gallery Direct invited me to choose a piece of art to review. I have been wanting to spruce up my office so I selected this abstract by Karen Silve entitled Open Space II. The colors are perfect for my home and the light captured in this piece reminds me of sunshine ~ a nice way to start the work day! I'm not an abstract collector but something about this drew me to it. It really makes the room adding atmosphere and completely transforming the look of the space. It's especially important for a workspace to be inviting and this will brighten up even a rainy day.



Open Space II is available in 4 different sizes, framing optional. I selected the 40x40 gallery wrapped canvas which retails for $249 and was on sale for $187 when I ordered it. The art arrived via FedEx within 3 days! It was well packed and the quality and craftsmanship is superb. I have seen similar giclees in local galleries for two to three times the price. Gallery Direct offers a 30-day return policy. Visit them online at GalleryDirect.com and connect with them on Twitter. Like them on Facebook and be entered to win a $500 Holiday Art Home Makeover.


Does your home need some sprucing up for the holidays? Our new friends at Gallery Direct would like to help! They are generously gifting one Chic Luxuries' reader a $200 credit good toward any artwork on their website.

Luxor Linens Towel Review

We had the pleasure of reviewing a set of Valentino Hotel Collection Egyptian Cotton Spa Towels from Luxor Linens. We received the towels in butter, the set includes a bath towel, a hand towel and a washcloth.



The towels are oversized, heavy and absorbent. The Valentino Hotel Collection towels are a Luxor Linen Exclusive. Their distinctive jacquard checker border design has been used on the Queen Mary 2 Luxury Ocean Liner and 5-star hotels. The bath towel measures 30x54" and is wonderful to wrap yourself in when you step out of the shower.


The workmanship and quality is apparent. I washed them several times and they haven't shrunk, pulled or frayed and they have become softer after each washing. The set would make a lovely housewarming or bridal shower gift. 

To order visit LuxorLinens.com. Regularly $126.70, the set is currently on sale for $88.69. For additional savings up to 20% storewide, enter code HOLIDAY2011 at checkout.

Nick Chavez Gifting Event

Every time I see Nick Chavez work his magic on QVC, I tell myself I must try his products, but never got around to picking up the phone to call in my order. So I was thrilled when we were selected to review some of his products for dry hair ~


Thirst Quencher Hydrating Shampoo with Argan Oil. I've heard so much about argan oil lately that I was very curious to try this product. The shampoo had a slight citrus scent, almost like tangerine, it lathered well and left my hair feeling very clean. An 8-oz. bottle retails for $20.

Thirst Quencher Hydrating Conditioner ~ my hair felt silky smooth in the shower after using this and the conditioner did a great job of detangling. An 8-oz. bottle retails for $22.


Angel Drops - I squirted 4 angel drops in my palm and worked it into my hair before styling. It left my hair smooth and frizz-free and also cut down on static-electricity. A big plus, Angel Drops left no greasy residue and did not weigh my hair down. A 2-oz. bottle retails for $19. 


Now if we could only get Nick to come and cut and style our hair, we'd be all set! ☺ Nick's team is giving away the next best thing ~ three lucky Chic Luxuries' readers will each win the Thirst Quencher Hydrating Shampoo, Conditioner and Angel Drops. ARV: $61 each, total ARV: $183
