Eleni's All Made Up Cookies

I’m a sucker for all things sweet. Cookies, candies, cakes, even sugar flavored lip gloss. I am especially drawn to sweets that are fashioned after adorable items…such as makeup! Eleni’s Cookie Company has created one of the most adorable cookie displays I have ever seen and her cookies are not only absolutely gorgeous, but have fabulous flavor as well.

The history on Eleni’s is of an amazing woman who started her cookie company in 1997 after tiring of the corporate world. She started baking her mother Jeanie’s oatmeal-raisin cookies and selling them out of her apartment. She now boasts 40 employees and 7000 customers per month. She bakes a whopping half million cookies per year and averages about 500 pounds of dough per week. Her best selling cookie is the Chocolate Chip Crisp cookie, and I don’t doubt it. But it’s also rumored that an all time favorite of her cookies is the Sassy Ginger cookie.

Eleni’s All Made Up Cookie set features a dozen delightful cookies for the deserving diva. These hand-iced sugar favorites include mascara, eye shadow, hair dryer, lipstick, nail polish, eyelashes. Eleni’s also has more seasonal cookie sets, such as her Halloween Cookie Collection!

The Perfect gift for the sweet tooth diva in all of us!

Vita Coco

Wanna stay summer fresh well into the autumn months? Unlike mojitos, Vita Coco, the tropical elixir, is actually good for you. Low in carbs but packed with skin-soothing antioxidants and potassium, “it also helps regulate blood pressure,” says nutritionist Ashley Koff.

Vita Coco is 100% pure coconut water and claims to bring you a refreshing, electrolyte-replacing beverage that surpasses artificial sports drinks in every way – except in artificiality. Vita Coco contains no artificial ingredients and unlike coconut milk, coconut water contains no fat or cholesterol. Its an excellent source of the five essential electrolytes: potassium, calcium, phosphorous, sodium, magnesium – in fact, they seem to have all the important “ums” covered. And its made in Brazil…where everything sexy originates.

Cost: $21 for 12 11.1-oz drinks
