Perfect Holiday Gifting with Patron Tequila 1-Liter Limited Edition Bottle

Do you know what is one of the most-gifted spirits during the holidays? It’s Patron tequila of course! And this year, Patron, one of the most-recognized and respected luxury spirits brands, has once again introduced a limited edition one-liter bottle. Perfect for holiday gifting, the Patron Tequila 1-Liter Limited Edition bottle, third in a series of collectible, large-size bottle designs, is inspired by Mexico’s tradition of vibrant ceramic and textile folk art. If you want to perfect the art of gift giving and holiday entertaining, gift your favorite person the Patron Tequila 1-Liter Limited Edition bottle. Give the gift that keeps on giving with 33% more Patron tequila from the 1-Liter bottle.

The brightly colored pewter bottle label on this year’s special edition release features Patron’s iconic bee design and depicts elements of Patron’s meticulous production process. It boasts renderings of the native Weber Blue Agave from which Patron is created, the razor-sharp ax used to chop the harvested agave, and the traditional “tahona” stone which crushes the cooked agave to begin the fermentation and distillation process. The Patron Tequila 1-Liter Limited Edition bottle is topped with an intricately designed metallic stopper, mirroring the detailed aesthetic of the label, and is packaged in a beautiful green gift bag, reminiscent of Patron Silver’s signature box.

“Patron is always one of the most-gifted spirits during the holidays and our limited-edition large size bottle has become something that people look forward to every year, both as a gift for someone special, and for holiday entertaining,” said Lee Applbaum, Global Chief Marketing Officer at Patron Spirits. “The distinctive label design of this year’s bottle – influenced by our rich Mexican tradition of crafting artisanal tequila – offers a truly unique gifting option for those who enjoy and appreciate high-quality luxury spirits.”

Patron has you covered when it comes to perfect holiday cocktails. This season, try the Daylight Saver (made with Patrón Silver tequila, Patron Citrónge Orange liqueur, Lillet Blanc, fresh lime, and a touch of absinthe) or the tart and refreshing Cranberry Cooler (combining Patrón Silver tequila, Patrón Citrónge Lime liqueur, cranberry juice, and club soda).

The Patron Tequila 1-Liter Limited Edition bottle is available at fine spirits and liquor retailers across the country for a steal at $59.99.

John Frieda® Haircare – Precision Foam Colour At-Home Haircolor Challenge

Everyone is working towards changing their bodies to have a new look for the summer months but while we’re all working on changing our bodies, we tend to forget about the top – our heads, specifically our hair. Why not do a little spring revamping at the top of our bodies with a fresh new hair color. John Frieda® recently launched their first-ever permanent hair colour – Precision Foam Colour. An easy to apply, the non-aerosol foam formula spreads evenly through hair, saturating every strand completely—even the back of the head, roots and hairline.

The 20-shade palette collection was developed in conjunction with the John Frieda® Creative Colour Director, and sought-after U.K. colourist, Nicola Clarke, who is responsible for some of the most iconic hair colours in Hollywood. With an array of options for blondes, brunettes and redheads, the collection brings a salon shade spectrum home. No mess, no drips, no stains—just gorgeous hair from every angle. The revolutionary colour even provides 100% grey coverage and vibrant shine with long-lasting results, offering salon precision at home for a mere $12.99.

I am inviting FIVE of you lovely readers to take the JOHN FRIEDA® HAIR CARE: AT HOME HAIR COLOUR CHALLENGE with me. Five of you will win the John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour (see above chart) of your choice to try at home. To participate, you must share before and after photos and share your at-home experience with me (and everyone else who reads this blog). To help you select your shade, click here ->

HOW TO — USE: Squeeze the center of the bottle to dispense foam into a gloved hand and apply directly to hair. Simply massage foam into hair with fingertips to thoroughly cover each strand from root to tip. The foam easily coats even the most hard-to-reach areas, including the back of the head. Let stand for 20 minutes (30 minute for grey coverage) and rinse with lukewarm water until water runs clear. Apply conditioner and leave in for 2-5 minutes before rinsing.

Each attendee was given the choice of a classic tunic to start and then choose to accessorize however they wanted with the available scarves, bags, necklaces, etc to create their own So Chico’s look

One of my favorite pieces from the Chico’s Accessories collection is this gorgeous that The Fab Report’s Lorna Solano is sporting in the photo above – gorgeous beading work, a peek of animal print and soft linen

Talbots has been added to my list of must visit retailers – this is not a result of me getting older, not at all. This is because Talbots is getting chicer. For Fall 2011, Talbots collection features lots of animal print, a trend that has been present in several seasons is available in both clothing and accessories and mixed with neutral colors

Talbots fall is also inspired by old Hollywood glamour, menswear silhouettes, styles and colors.

Touches of vibrant color, classic sophistication and soft femininity also run rampant through the collection. Full pleated skirts, figure flattering silhouettes and chic accessories punctuate the latter part of fall

Diesel and Dani Stahl Introduce The Powder of Diesel

Diesel is known for their amazing denim; with a vast amount of fans worshiping at the altar of these denim gods, they continue to provide their loyal subjects with great product. Thus they introduce the Powder of Diesel Collection for the super cool strong women. The Powder Collection features bold color, and great denim fits and washes and is inspired by our obsession with makeup, they have strong and edgy feel with a feminine touch. Diesel uses treatments such as hand sponging with natural colour pigments, hand applied spots of colour and manual spraying to bring powder, paint and other cosmetic effects to your jeans. They’re colourful, summery and often in lightweight fabrics. The Powder of Diesel captures the world of cosmetics – blushes, eye shadow, powder – with denim treatments enriched by colored pigments.” Diesel’s denim is soft yet tough, adaptable yet chic, and comes in all different shapes and forms.

NYLON’s Dani Stahl was on hand to give out style advice (while rocking a pair of Diesel Powder Zivy in Spearmint)

Present in this collection are Diesel’s Essentials washes: classic, easy-wearing denim treated with constantly reviewed and updated techniques. The Blue Eyecons: an exclusive and unique process of three lengthy washes and numerous treatments, undertaken by hand in Italy. Diesel’s feminine take on the drop-crotch, carrot and sarouel styles, are the ultimate in fashion without sacrificing any measure of glamour. Check out a few styles from the Diesel’s Powder Collection.

All about femininity, there are lots of skin-tight and figure-hugging shapes, made possible by stretch fabrics and the new “jegging” family. There’s a wide selection of classic, boyfriend and bootcut styles – as well as a fantastic flare that’s sure to tempt the fashionistas. False pockets, zipped pockets, enlarged coin pockets, extra rivets and eye-catching stitching: we believe devilishness is in the details.

The Powder of Diesel partnered with Make Up For Ever who provided mini makeovers for the blogger event
