Grow By Thyself

You've always said that "If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself." But in the case of the Grobal Self Watering Pot  you really can let someone (or something) take over your dirty work for a change. The Grobal draws water and nutrients from the (included) soil pad and feeds them to your (not included) plant on an as-needed basis. The result? Fabulous foliage with a zero energy output.

We can talk about fragrances with the best of them, but we know that choosing that perfect perfume may take more than just liking a description. Enter the Sephora Scent Sampler ($50). This set comes packed with mini bottles of Sephora's top ten bestselling scents (including Mark Jacobs' "Daisy" and Vera Wang's "Princess"). 
Sniff and sample before choosing a favorite, filling out the included voucher and heading to a Sephora store to pick up a full-sized bottle of your new signature scent.

Polish Empowers YOU

What empowers you? For me, the Jessica Cosmetics Empowered Collection is a pretty good place to start. This line of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP-free nail color offers six feminine shades. Paying tribute to the brave women fighting breast cancer every day, each has an inspirational moniker, like "Breathe," "Endure," and favorite,"Faith". Sixty-five percent of all proceeds will go to the American Institute for Cancer Research.jessica-cosmetics-empowered-collection.gif
