For the Bachelorette
It seems like every spring a stack of wedding invitations arrives in the mail and even though finding wedding presents for the happy couple is as easy as buying some of the 5,000 towels they registered for, finding presents for the bride for the events leading up to the wedding can be difficult. My friends who currently are or have recently been Maids of Honor or bridesmaids have found this task particularly daunting. They felt obligated to bring the bride something for the bachelorette party. Nothing major, but something small and authentic to show that they were thinking about her in addition to the boas and tiaras and Ke$ha amounts of glitter. I thought, "What could be better than a bag of fun makeup goodies for a last hot night out?" TokyoMilk Dark Lip Elixir not only goes with the red hot theme, but is Cherry Bourbon flavored and scented with notes of cherry brandy, whisky, aged wood and clove. Scotch Naturals in Kiltlifter may be bad girl red, but you don't need to feel badly about buying it because it's non-toxic (it doesn't contain any of the chemicals found in traditional polish or the chemical smell) and eco-friendly. You really can't go wrong with lashes named "Flair" for any kind of night out. Also, I included a great mascara to wear under the fake lashes because it will make them look even better. TokyoMilk Dead Sexy is perfect for a last hurrah because it lives up to its name, yet it's subtle enough to wear everyday. (Seriously, I wear it almost everyday.) And - drumroll please - the pièce de résistance is a Jessica Kagan Cushman bag. I can't think of any tiara or boa that says "Do you have any idea who I am?" quite as well as this bag, and that's what the bachelorette party is all about, right?
