New Year is time to buy shoes

Hey, it's almost a new year, and that means you need those fun, sexy shoes for New Year's Eve. You also can find some great deals on practical shoes like boots, which I never thought I'd wear in South Florida on a regular basis.
new%20years%20eve%20pumps.jpg

After much searching, I found some party shoes on sale at Nine West. They look a bit like these Audrey Brooke Estella pumps now on sale at DSW, for $49.95. (I paid even less.)

There are many enticing heels on sale at DSW, Macy's, Dillards, Nine West and other stores, but remember: You need to be able to walk, stand and dance in them on New Year's Eve.

So choose wisely, and maybe pick up some boots that don't hurt your feet either, for 50 percent off.

Crate & Barrel Outlet to close at Sawgrass

Say it ain't so! Crate & Barrel Outlet is one of my favorite stores at Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise, and it has announced it is closing on Jan. 9.

Over the years, I've bought wine glasses, tableware, some cute snowmen salt and pepper shakers, and other items for myself and as gifts at the outlet store. There are bound to be great bargains before the store closes, so I'll try to make a final visit .

You can continue to shop the regular stores at Boca Town Center and Gulfstream Village, but you won't find the prices you did at the outlet. You can still shop the outlet online at Crate and Barrel Outlet.

Ivanka Trump gift to support Girl Up

Trump.bmp

Ivanka Trump Jewelry, a high-end jewelry line by The Donald's daughter and a successful businesswoman in her own right, is offering a bracelet design for $35 to support Girl Up. It's a cute bracelet with two charms.

I bought it for a friend, and much to my surprise, received a $100 gift card as a bonus, to buy anything I might want. Of course, her jewelry is too pricey for me, but it was a generous gesture all the same.

Trump's $30 Girl Up Bracelet benefits the United Nation Foundation's Girl Up Campaign, which raises awareness and funds for several U.N. programs that help in-need adolescent girls, preparing them for the next generation of leadership.

"The best" hot chocolate, $19.99, at Williams-Sonoma

hot%20chocolate.jpgI don't know if it's the best, but now that South Florida's weather has turned "cold," people are getting in the spirit of all things North. So why not hot chocolate?

Williams-Sonoma, which has all kind of holiday delicacies, is selling a 12-oz tub of hot chocolate for $19.99. Peppermint hot chocolate also is available. And you can pick up handcrafted (really?) marshmallows to go with it ($16.50)!

All fun aside, the description really does sound appealing: "Inspired by the famed Café Angélina in Paris, where steaming pots of velvety hot chocolate are served with bowls of whipped cream alongside, ours is intensely chocolatey, rich and smooth. Made from shavings of premium chocolate rather than cocoa powder to yield a well-rounded body, rich taste, smooth texture and exquisite aroma. We've chosen an artisanal bittersweet chocolate by Guittard, San Francisco chocolate makers since the 19th century."

Could make a nice gift for a chocolate lover. Maybe Williams-Sonoma will let you try some in one of its stores before buying. On a cold day, like this one.

Sparkle and shine with holiday makeup for eyes, lips and body

s49901_product_lg.png
Naughty or nice? Hmmm …That seems to be the big question this holiday season and we have you covered on both fronts now that it’s time to get your sparkly shine on. These lovely numbers will take you right through New Year’s Eve, so glisten up!

Also, check out this How-to video on getting that holiday look from Gina Simone at Bond Street Salon in Delray Beach.

EYES: A girl needs options and the Stila Color Wheel Eye Shadow Palette ($38) offers 37 of them along with a 16-page “Lookbook” with photos and tips. We loved how the shadows blended. High-tech fashionistas can download Stila’s “Get the Look” iPhone app to help get the glam on.

EYES: Rebel this season with the limited edition Rock For Ever: Holiday 2010 collection at Sephora.com. This collection winks, sparkles and shines. Your eyes will light up when you see the Rock For Ever Eye Shadow Palette ($45). This Fab Four has two diamond shadows in beige and black and white and silver iridescent highlighers. It comes with handy instructions for a sweek or smokey look. The palette pairs perfectly with the Rock For Ever Aqua Eyes ($36). This tricked out travel tin is filled with five mini waterproof pencils in matte black, grey, copper, gold and silver. These eye products glide on like silk. Our testers rated both a 10. mufe2.jpg
Bonus: Get a free clutch filled with 12 samples with code ONTHEGO at Sephora.com

FACE: The Bare Minerals Shimmer & Shine Collection ($54) at Sephora is simply brilliant. The kit has everything you need to apply two complete looks for eyes, cheeks and lips. Testers loved the High-Shine Gold Medal eye color and found the Sprinkles lip gloss to be a perfect topping to any lip color.
41jyWXcOWiL._AA300_.jpg

NAILS: We hear well-dressed martinis adore festive fingers. The Deborah Lippmann Nail Color called “Happy Birthday” ($18) at Amazon.com will help you get the party started with multi-colored glitz.

CHEEKS: Dancing cheek to cheek? Be sure to sweep on the festively flattering Les Tissages de Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Effect ($45). A shimmery swipe on bare shoulders invites kisses from Santa, too. Get it at Bloomingdale stores and Chanel.com

BODY: You will glow and we guarantee it will be from Urban Decay’s Sparkling Lickable Body Powder ($29). 824173_fpx.tif.jpegThe flavors — including Honey (gold), Cocoa (bronze) and Marshmallow (white) — are seductively yummy in the tummy. Get them at Ulta.com with free shipping with code 512213. Also available at UrbanDecay.com.

LIPS: Pretty pouts are a cinch with the Estee Lauder Pure Color Five Color Lip Palette in Extravagant ($42) at EsteeLauder.com. This limited-edition golden compact contains the perfect ingredients for mixing and matching: two shimmering glosses in gold and nude, two lipsticks in crimson/coral and ruby/bronze, and a perfect red. Also available at EL counters at Macy's.
