Gift Idea - Glassybaby Evelyn Candle & Cup

Glassybaby teamed up with Nordstrom specifically for the Evelyn Glassybaby (pictured in pink) for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The pink votive was created honor of Evelyn Lauder whom passed in November. Along with an initial donation of $25,000 - Ten percent(%10) of all sales of the Evelyn will go to Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Glassybaby candles and cups are not only beautiful, they provide support and purpose beyond. Glassybaby, created & founded by Lee Rhodes, provided her with the idea after she found a source of comfort from tea lights during her 7 year battle with Lung Cancer. The company has donated over $1,000,000 USD to charity since November 2003.

Each Glassybaby is hand blown and is the combined work of four Seattle Artisans. It can be utilized as a tea light holder, a cup, or a vase. The exquisite beauty is unsurpassed with little bubbles floating about within it. They are stury, and thick unlike most candle holders.

The Evelyn Glassybaby is available exclusively at Cosmetics department inside Nordstrom or online at They are a lovely addition to any home, as a gift for a loved one, or to give to someone suffering from Cancer as a source of hope and inner emotional warmth.

I was sent a sample of the Evelyn Candle Holder to provide input and images for my blog. This does not affect my opinion or review of the item.

Glass Nail Files : the skinny

Trust me. I get it. You want to file your nails, and you're used to cheap nail files. Then someone comes along and tells you how amazing glass nail files are. So you begin searching and find out there are super inexpensive ones, and then very inexpensive ones. For a moment you think, well I can get the cheaper ones!


Trust me. I've been there, done that, have the T-shirt. I bought several very inexpensive glass nail files. Guess what?
Most broke in my hands, others shredded my nails. They were also a bit ugly at the top, with no real ryhme or reason to their design.
So when I was asked to do a post about quality nail files by by Mont Bleu , I jumped. Quite frankly, more people need to know that sometimes(usually), you get what you pay for. also makes beautiful pumice-like stones for rubbing calluses.

I have tried higher quality ones, and was quite happy. Through this wonderful site you can also get really beautiful, quality Swarovski Crystal nail files.

So consider not only the polish you paint on your nails, the lotions and creams you apply. Remember nail health comes down to diet, and proper preparations with good, quality tools.

Specifically is well designed, with a beautiful selection to chose from. They carry much of the hardware needed for beauty needs. Many have options for crystals on the hardware, which I love. Prices are reasonable, however they are in Euro's, not US dollars, and ships directly from Czech Republic.
