Hope you all are starting off the week right: free of your Thanksgiving turkey hangover and still with some money left over from Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday! What a weekend. Even though we’ve gotten through the first holiday, and the Christmas music is blaring everywhere, I still can’t believe it’s almost Christmas. It’s time for me to snap out of it! Christmas Eve is three weeks from today.
Below are the eyecatchers of the week:
What’s Printic? Printic is a new app that allows you to print pictures from your smartphone that resemble old school Polaroids. I started following them on Instagram before I actually downloaded the free app. It’s pretty cool – it autoloads your photo albums and connects to Facebook and Instagram to take out the trouble of tracking down your images. While in the app, you can make edits to your photo before submitting them for printing. They’ll then mail them to you, or to someone special! The team over at Printic was kind enough to gift me some credits and I was able to order these pictures with them. I love them and am already plotting what Christmas gifts I am going to create with my next order. Maybe a calendar?
Holiday Pop-Up Shops
I always welcome a new and interesting way to shop and I love the idea of a pop-up shop. I’ve helped staff friends’ booths before and played with the idea of having my own, but the influx of holiday pop-up’s in vacant business spaces and other venues here in Sacramento is exciting. Back to me playing with the idea of having one – Loressa of Tela Clothing and L on Sac and I are teaming up to take part in Indie Sacramento Craft Collective‘s Holiday Pop-Up at Building 212 on Saturday, December 14! Come see us and pick out the perfect gift for another stylish gal and pick up a thing or two for yourself as well. There will be other vendors there selling clothing, jewelry and other giftables, not to mention a beauty bar for a little pampering. Visit the Facebook event page for more info.
As much as I love emerald for fall, I have to give a shout out to cobalt. It’s been a color that’s favored me for a while, so it’s only fair that I favor it back. I have cobalt jeans and a sweater which have become some of my go-to pieces when trying to look chic in a hurry, but I don’t have any cobalt accessories. This necklace at INPINK.com really caught my eye, and it even comes with stud earrings. Big win. This set is perfect for glamming up a party dress, or even layering over a button up. If you love this like I do, you can use my promo code LIPSTICKGIRAFFE30 for 30% off – or on anything else on the site that tickles your fancy.
