I’ve given away a lot of amazing goodies here on Bobbie.com…but this is far and away my favorite! Inspired by NYC Garbage (small cubes filled with authentic trash from Manhattan streets), I pulled together a delightful assortment of KLG & Hoda’s trash from the TODAY Show makeup room, including crumpled garment tags, wine bottle corks, make-up stained cotton balls, a chunk of Spanx packaging and much, much more. To enter, simply leave a comment below. The winner will be announced Wednesday, January 4 at 6PM.* Good luck!
*Sorry, USA only.

If you’ve ever passed by inexpensive, costume jewelry clip-on earrings in a flea market, turn around, go back and get them because I have a great DIY idea! Use wire cutters or sharp scissors to cut the clips off the back of the earrings (make sure there are no jagged metal pieces poking out). Then hotglue your new pieces of bling onto a basic ring (or better yet, invest in a box of these “ring blanks,” 10 for $6.79 on Etsy). A great way to make use of extra or stray earrings–also a great way to re-invent a mother or grandmother’s old jewelry.
Ever wonder why a Louis Vuitton bag looks the way it does? Turns out Mr. Vuitton got his start creating trunks and luxe luggage in the late 19th century, all of which were lined with his signature monogram print. When trains, planes and cars began to allow people to take shorter trips and day excursions, the Vuitton family began building smaller bags, designed to go inside their larger trunks and travel pieces. Over time, the purses became best-sellers– and today, you’re still hard-pressed to spot an A-Lister in the airport without the iconic print by their side.
As a 5′ 4″ Manhattanite, I can’t live without triple platform heels, but if you’re tall, live in a more casual city or just can’t stand the pain of stilettos, here’s a little help! I picked out a few low heels & wedges (just in time for NYE) that won’t destroy your ‘soles’ and make no sacrifice when it comes to style.
Full, tea-length skirts have been out in force on red carpets. Love the idea of wearing one of these ladylike styles to a holiday gathering– a surefire way to stand out in a sea of skin-tight glittery gowns
