Cheese and wine is pretty much the be all, end all. And macarons. Did you know even McDonalds sells macarons in Paris?!

Everyone usually thinks red, but I am becoming such a big fan of emerald green as an accent color for black and white. It's uber-chic and current without being played out and expected. I'm even designing my bedroom this way. Yes, I painted my walls black...
I've been eyeing all of these great, mailed to your door, subscription boxes for cosmetics, beauty products and the like. Glossy Box was always intriguing but a bit too rich for my blood. I decided today to pull the trigger on Ipsy, which sends a hot pink bubble wrap mailer to your door monthly with a new makeup bag full of goodies. Um, fun! Sadly, it's waitlisted, but all the best places are, right? So while we wait for the day my number comes up and the mailman delivers unto me my glam bag, I ask all of you: do you Ipsy? Is it worth it? Are there other services you prefer? At $10/month how can you go wrong?
