laradiva's eye of horus helps you unleash your inner latin goddessness

typically anything our girl lara of the fame designs we swoon over and this lapis necklace is no exception.

when we discovered this treasure it took a moment to catch our breath. well there is a good reason for that. this gorgeous piece is made of lapis lazuli stone and a vermeil eye. simply described as the symbol of the feminine goddess within we asked no more questions because any latina worth her salt knows its all about unleashing our divineness!

never leave home on a trip without...a visit to of course

our 2011 casanaranja TRAVEL calendar is overflowing with review trips to magical places in beautiful far-away lands. one of our travel objectives is to travel light, literally and figuratively. lucky for us, the travel fairies delivered on our intentions in the form of a most brilliant travel beauty website (yes, ironic, we know.), (tsa approved)
the site has every product you can possibly need and some you didn't know you needed, but are so cute in their lilliputian 3oz form, we think they may just become staples in your toiletries bag. Its serisouly like sephora in a 3floz form. now go forth and carry on! (pun intended)
