The SEPHORA COLLECTION Luxe Combo Travel Brush, $15, is literally the most amazing mini brush I’ve ever used in my entire life. With both plastic and boar bristles, it detangles, smoothes and softens, giving my hair the look of actually being brushed! It really is like a regular-sized brush, just with a mini handle, making it easily portable for every day use and travel convenience. I’m so glad I bought this for myself, as it’s my new favorite beauty item!I was thrilled to discover that I had a T.J.Maxx gift card yet to be spent, and couldn’t help but indulge in some bath and body care items! Some of the products came in generous sizes, so that I can ensure they will last and last throughout the year. From bath balls to sea salts and olive oil soap (my favorite!) I found plenty of options from my favorite brand names to use now, share, and stash for later. I picked all of these up at the T.J.Maxx store at 59th Street and First Avenue; where is your favorite location? Eveden Brands previewed the latest from its lineup of luxurious lingerie and swimwear brands with options for all sizes across the selections by Elomi, Fantasie, Huit, Freya, Fauve, and Goddess. Trends that surfaced in the category, destined to be popular for spring 2014 include lace inserts, retro cuts and prints, and sensual yet practical peek-a-boo detailing. My two personal favorites, Huit and Freya, encapsulated special occasion and silhouettes for daily wear, making it hard to choose just one set to take home with me!
