Our Beauty Pulse Survey revealed an interesting stat: women love receiving beauty-oriented surprises. It may be time to take down the tinsel and turn off the Christmas lights, but as gifters and beauty fanatics we love to surprise our Mamas throughout the year. We’ve all come a long way from the days of Play-Doh-shaped lipsticks and compacts as presents, but that doesn’t mean finding the right beauty loot is easy.
Rather than spending countless hours in the beauty aisle or surrendering to the siren call of a gift card, give mom something sweetly scented, brightly colored, or totally luxurious. These 10 sensational options will (secretly) have mom referring to you as her favorite child:

In recent years, the beauty industry has really embraced technology, as evidenced YSL’s latest eyeshadow palette featuring Facebook blue. As a proud techie, I’ve also been fascinated by the ways that technology has helped people like me learn about makeup, whether it’s by watching makeup tutorials or learning about BB creams through online research. And hands down, my favorite tech device is my iPad.
Along with a few other essentials like vintage sunglasses and sunscreen, my iPad has been my constant companion this summer. But after my latest adventure in the city, I noticed that the back of my iPad had some tragically visible scratches. With a beach trip and plenty of other jaunts in my future, I knew it was time to get serious about keeping my MVP device protected. Here are four summer-bright iPad cases (including one exclusive Birchbox number!) worth checking out. Think of them as SPF for your iPad.
When you think successful female CEO in New York City, a minimal beauty routine isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But there’s nothing typical about Emily Sugihara, founder of chic reusable bag company, Baggu. The eco-entrepreneur is way more into surfing and rock climbing than makeup but she is really serious about her sunblock—a girl after our own hearts! Earlier this month, we sat down with the ever-busy businesswoman to talk about her active lifestyle and plans for total world domination. Here’s a link to our profile of Sugihara, but these are some of our favorite highlights:
We’re pretty much of the opinion that every accessory you own should be cute—with a capitol ‘C’—and that includes your utilitarian tote. Lucky for you, we’ve found the most adorable nylon carryalls ever. And they’re from Baggu.
Now you might think that all reusable bags are created equal: not so. These durable bags feature a very fun—dare we say funky—geometric design that really pops. Plus, they fold to be practically paper thin, and are surprisingly spacious. In fact, we were shocked how easily they became our new go-to gym bag: They fit running shoes, a spare change of clothes, and a makeup bag, no prob. (Sort of Mary Poppins-like, no?)
