Luxetips! Annual 12 Days of Luxetips Before Christmas Best of 2014 Giveaways

Hello Divas!

Be a blessing to someone this holiday season.  And it does not have to be a monetary gift.  Go spend time with a parent, tell someone you love them, bake your neighbor some cookies.  Simply show love!  

I am really excited because it is that time of the year again to spread holiday cheer. Yeah!

For my Luxetips Diva loyalists, you know the deal.  I will list my top 12 products that wowed me this year and within the next days before Christmas, we will give away some of the products each day.  This is a great way to get a treat for yourself or a loved one. 

So without further ado, here is my Best of 2014 List!

1.  Sol Republic Tracks Air Wireless Headphones.

3. Sloane Rouge Clothing.

I discovered Sloane Rouge Clothing this year and I am in love with the brand.  The brand features quality yet affordable knitwear with beautiful designs.  

4.  Priti NYC nail polish.

You Divas know I am a sucker for nail polish and I have discovered a new brand that I love.  Priti NYC nail polish is a 5 Free nail polish and supports organic farmers to decrease the amount of chemicals poisoning the Earth- and it’s  inhabitants- one manicure at a time. The colors are gorgeous and it has crazy shine! Love.

5. Smashbox Always Sharp Eyeliner.

I love Smashbox Cosmetics eye shadows and liners.  The colors are rich and last forever. Promise! I particularly love colored eye-liner.  It easily fits in your purse and you can change your look on the go.  Smashbox introduced these new Always Sharp Eyeliners this year and they are perfection.

I must say this has to be my absolute favorite product of 2014.  A blinged out clutch that doubles as a mini-speaker is simply priceless! The lightweight Mini-Clutch wirelessly streams audio with high-quality Bluetooth®, bringing the party and music wherever you go.  This speaker is perfect for trips and beach days. 

7. Jen 7 Jeans.

These are my new favorite pair of high end jeans.  Jen 7 Jeans were created by the makers of 7 For All Mankind Jeans.  They are designed for the sophisticated woman who wants a pair of jeans that are instantly flattering and crafted to provide a flawless foundation.  I love these jeans!  They are soft, comfortable and they make me look good.

Of course everyone knows how much I love Lancôme and I particularly love their Gloss in Love lip gloss.  It has amazing shine, comes in gorgeous colors, and moisturizes.  This set features 3 lip colors in a light pink, electric pink and a gorgeous deep red shade.

9.  Olavie Candles.  $34.  

Violet

The Le Vin Collection features hand poured soy candles with lead-free wicks.  Each scent is inspired by a different wine bouquet or vineyard setting.  The signature scents are Sparkling Violet, Tuscan Fig, Vineyard Garden, and White Grapefruit. I fell in love with these candles immediately.  They smell amazing and the last forever.

10.  Personality Hotels.  

TNDivaExecutive1

Personality Hotels owns 3 boutique hotels in San Francisco, one of my favorite cities.  The hotels are: Hotel Diva, Kensington Park Hotel and Hotel Union Square.  I mean a hotel names Hotel Diva??

Luxetips Travel! GAÏA Riverlodge Named One Of The Top 10 ECO RESORTS

Hello Divas!

It is really important to surround yourself with people who support you, encourage you and do not judge. These people are priceless!

unnamed-4 

I am so looking forward to visiting Belize.  Simply gorgeous! 

When I do make it to Belize, the GAÏA Riverlodge is definitely a resort I must visit.  GAÏA Riverlodge was recently recognized as a Top Eco Hotel by the Smith Hotel Awards. After careful review of nearly 25,000 votes globally, a panel of expert judges named GAÏA Riverlodge to its short list of top ten Eco Hotels in the World.  What a fabulous honor!

Via GAÏA Riverlodge, 

Tucked away in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve and surrounded by the Five Sisters waterfalls, travelers seek out this hydro-powered destination for adventure and to enjoy thebeauty and tranquility of Belize’s culturally rich landscape. 
 
In a recent series of environmental initiatives, GAÏA Riverlodge is also one of the only five properties in Belize to be Green Globe Certified. The hotel prides itself in upholding the highest standard of sustainability and recently developed a fresh vegetable garden on-site, where guests can now enjoy hyper-local cuisine at GAÏA’s acclaimed restaurant.

I definitely believe that going green can be luxe and GAÏA Riverlodge has set the standard.

Luxetips Style! Dawn Levy DL2 Line of Sleek & Sexy Puffer Coats

Luxetips Style! Dawn Levy DL2 Line of Sleek & Sexy Puffer Coats

Hello Divas!

One of my favorite books is “The Four Agreements.”  It reminds us that we can’t take slights or situations personally no matter how much we feel personally attacked.  It is not about us. It is about the other person attacking. 

Luxury coat designer, Dawn Levy, has a line of luxurious sleek puffy coats that are all the rage.  The coats are made to hug a woman’s curves while also being warm, functional and with a bit of glamour.  

Dawn Levy recently launched her DL2 line that features coats made with the same quality but with a more affordable price tag.  Check them out!

Via DL2, 

The DL2 line offers the same slimming warm coats with a slimming budget to match. The Bell is a beautiful short puffer with princess sleeves that show off the skinny girl on the go. It’s a luxurious jacket that only costs $439. Another perfect gift for the chic woman is the DL2 Natashia; it is an all-white puffer with faux fox fur for the eco-conscious individual. This coat is only $525. The DL2 line is also famous for its classic quilted moto, the Marley. The tailored waist and cube pattern creates an elegant appeal for an elegant gal. This is one of the most expensive in the DL2 line at $699.

Here are the coats!

Love!  I tend to shy away from puffy coats because I think they are a bit too bulky and not classic enough for me.  However, these DL2 coats have definitely changed my mind.

Toodles!

I have more news to share from the L.A. Autoshow.  In La La Land, there was luxe cars, luxe events, and beautiful people! 

The Lincoln Motor Company in partnership with Automotive Rhythms, hosted a star-studded event at the Viceroy Hotel (Swoon!) to kick off the 2014 L.A. Autoshow.

Luxetips Automobiles! Land Rover Discovery Sports USA Debut At L.A. Autoshow

Hello Divas!

When we begin to worry, fret and panic that is when we have to trust God with all of our might and know he will work it out. 

2015-land-rover-discovery-sport-front-side-view

The L.A. Auto Show took place this past week and the auto brands debuted their latest and greatest to much fan fair. 

Discovery-Sport-2015-production-preparations

One luxury car brand, Land Rover, debuted their new 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport vehicle to the US.

Via Land Rover,

The 2015 Discovery Sport, making its North American debut at the show, will deliver a highly refined combination of performance, safety and efficiency, thanks to a body shell of high-strength steel and lightweight aluminium, a 240hp turbocharged 2.0-litre engine, nine-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel-drive. The all new versatile premium compact SUV incorporates a dynamic design with a compact footprint and provides optional seven-passenger seating in a “5+2” configuration.

Land-Rover-Discover-Sport-2015-i01-1024   

This vehicle sounds fabulous! Plus considering the safety and efficiency features, I would say it is definitely a “luxe mom” vehicle. Plus you have the option to increase seating from 5 to 7 seats which is a major plus for me.  I need those 7 seats for hauling the luxe kids around with their friends from school to the movies, sporting events and beyond. Love it!

2015-land-rover-discovery-sport

I think I am in love.

The new 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport will arrive in the U.S. early 2015 and the starting retail price is $38, 920.

Toodles!
