Aerin Beauty!

Press SamplePackaging Prowess alert readers!  Before I go into even more depth about AERIN Beauty products in future posts, I just wanted to point out how incredibly glam the packaging is. AERIN is truly a lifestyle brand, and the little details matter. The brand features home furnishings from lamps to furniture, amazingly giftable décor, accessories for the woman who has everything (I adore the Heart Raffia Zip Pouch), and naturally the beauty products worth perching on your treasured vanity.

Born Free, Tory Burch Reversible Tote

I LOVE Shopbop, and was thrilled to hear the brand has pulled together a great way to raise money to eliminate mother-to-child HIV transmission worldwide by December 31, 2015.

Shopbop has collaborated with Born Free and the fashion world to create a line of limited-edition clothing and accessories where 100% of the profits are donated directly to this charity. Most items are under $250, so it’s easy to participate in this worthy cause.

The Designers involved are: Victoria Beckham, Gisele Bundchen, Tory Burch, Sarah Burton (Alexander McQueen), Consuelo Castiglioni (Marni), Alberta Ferretti, Diane von Furstenberg, Carolina Herrera, Donna Karan (DKNY and Urban Zen), Liya Kebede, Clare Waight Keller (Chloe), Jenna Lyons (J Crew), Isabel Marant, Marchesa, Stella McCartney, Phoebe Philo (Celine), Miuccia Prada, Rachel Roy, Ivanka Trump, Donatella Versace and Vera Wang
