Guys I am geeking out so hard right now! Not only am I going to an special early showing of the new Beauty & the Beast movie tomorrow night, I just found out that you can have your very own enchanted rose. This is some real life crazy fairy tale awesome! The company is called Forever Rose, and they are offering up living flowers that can last up to three years without water or sunlight and theoretically last indefinitely if they are kept in their protected glass domes.
When I saw these white ones, all I could think was how they would be amazing centerpieces at a wedding. Heck, they would probably even upstage the all-important wow of the wedding dress. Oh, and of course I need a full arrangement to live in my work office.
I can’t even begin to articulate how badly I want one of these. It’s one thing to have to get a shirt or a mug with images from the movie on it, but to be able to to have a real piece of the magic? It doesn’t get any better than that for me. Now all I need is a yellow ball gown and a talking teapot and I will be set.
I have been LOVING the rainbow of hair color trends over the last couple of years. I mean, the fact that one can now purchase lavender hair dye at Target is a testament to how far we’ve pushed the envelope when it comes to “socially acceptable” hair color. Now innovators are taking things one step further with The Unseen: Fire dyes. This semi-permanent color turns your tresses from a deep somber raven black to a variety fiery hues with the application of heat. Now for a Florida girl like me, I am fairly certain that there wouldn’t be much of a shift back and forth, but for someone who didn’t reside in the sunshine state, this would be so much fun. This product was set to launch with London fashion week and the company behind it is now looking for investors so they can start large scale production.
