Baublebar Mona Necklace, $68. Available at Baublebar.com
- Haute gypsy style reaches new heights with the Baublebar Mona necklace, which features two strands of round epoxy stone beads in a light blue hue, with marble-like vein details that lead to five elaborate pendants arranged in a V-formation.

The necklace, which measures 19″ in length, then culminates with a horn-shaped pendant featuring a raw, cylindrical-shaped, turquoise-colored stone and a clear, rectangular glass stone placed horizontally along its rounded top edge.

Not only is this lace bralette incredibly sexy, but it’s also surprisingly practical. For starters, it features a secure barrel closure at the front, so there’s no need to reach behind your back and try to blindly loop a clasp through a hook (or to hook your bra closed at the front and then turn it around to its proper place). Second, it features a racerback and a deep front plunge, making it the ideal undergarment for dresses and tops with tricky necklines.

Packaged in a sky blue windowpane box with whimsical illustrations of hearts, flowers, diamonds, yellow lemons, and orange slices, the Boscia Japanese Favorites holiday set features four deluxe-sized products designed to keep skin clear, soft, and radiant. On the quest to glowing skin, you can start with Boscia’s Exfoliating Peel Gel, which contains orange oil, pomegranate extract, geranium oil, bilberry extract, jojoba seed extract clove leaf oil, sugar cane extract, lavender oil, sugar maple extract, and turmeric root extract, and which is designed to both physically remove dull surface skin cells and to penetrate the deeper layers of the dermis and thereby promote cellular regeneration. Those with oily or combination skin, meanwhile, will love the Detoxifying Black Cleanser, which unclogs pores and removes any dirt and impurities therein via such natural ingredients as charcoal powder, licorice root extract, and artichoke leaf extract, thereby preventing acne breakouts and minimizing the appearance of pores over time. When it’s time to hydrate, there’s the Boscia Tsubaki Glotion, which moisturizes and nourishes the skin thanks to ingredients like camellia oil, rice bran oil, sunflower seed oil, mango seed butter, and jojoba oil while also giving the complexion an immediate radiance boost thanks to light-reflecting pigments that give the visage a natural glow. To truly achieve a more even skin tone and banish pesky dark spots once and for all, there’s the Sake Bright White Mask, a peel-off mark in a pearlescent white shade that not only helps to diminish any signs of hyperpigmentation thanks to the sake extract in the formula (a natural anti-melanogenic), but which also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. With this fabulous foursome of Boscia products, dull winter skin can become a distant memory — and what woman doesn’t crave that?
