I have been working extra hard lately at my day job which means late nights and not a lot of time for blogging. I hope this weekend will give me some time to catch up, but in the meantime I am enjoying keeping up with the 5 on Friday posts. It gives me something to look forward to every week.
I decided this week’s 5 on Friday would be about the Academy Awards. I used to love to host Oscar parties when I lived with my parents, but I haven’t had the chance to do one in the past few years. I was going to write this post about my favorite items from the 2014 gift bags, but I didn’t really see anything affordable that appealed to me. So I decided to create my own Detroit Duchess Academy Awards gift bags. Here are a few of glamorous things I would include in my gift bags:
First of all, I would use these fabulous Kate Spade reusable shopping bags ($16) as the actual gift bag:
1. Deborah Mitchell Bee Venom Mask ($45.22)
This is the favorite face treatment of Kate Middleton and Camilla Parker Bowles. It’s touted as nature’s alternative to Botox and is definitely something that has been on my list for a while.
2. Alpepi Plus ($64.99)
The gift bags usually have some sort of technology gift and I thought this mobile phone charger would be perfect. You can take this with you on a hike, at the mall, or anywhere you don’t have the ability to plug in. It works for both Apple and Android devices. The cutest part is that it’s shaped like an apple!
3. Faux Fur Keyhole Scarf ($19.99)
I don’t know why but I always think of fur scarves as so luxurious. I have wanted one for a while and you can’t beat the price on this one from The Limited.
4. Clare Vivier Foldover Leopard Clutch ($210)
I had this on my list last summer and thought it was sold out. Imagine my surprise when I found it in one of my searches! I think this is just darling.
5. Kate Spade Silver Street Flask ($40)
What says Oscars more than a cocktail? I was actually in the market for a nice looking flask and when I stumbled upon this one I couldn’t resist. I love the Happy Hour text on the front.
