Shave Money Getting Subscription Razors Online

Letting your boyfriend borrow your shaving blade is never a pretty sight - prickly legs are the ultimate fashion faux pas!  No more will your man have to borrow your razor.... a new web service keeps you and your beau conveniently stocked with razors without breaking the bank.

Dollar Shave Club is a fun, subscription based razor service with a variety of blades and budget friendly options.

The low-end option costs a measly dollar per month! The next two options are high-end razors that still keep you spending less than $10 a month. It also saves you the hassle of having to head to the store on those evenings your man unexpectedly sleeps over.

Dollar Shave Club is not only incredibly convenient, the company has a pretty cool sense of humor, which gives them a gold star in our book. Check out the totally awesome video advertisement from their site:

The club's prices are cheaper than buying in stores, keeping more money in your wallet. Your guy will have extra cash to buy you a brand new GRACESHIP bag and you'll have more money to spend on shoes!

Create An Outdoor Oasis in Your Office

It's one of our favorite times of year - summer music festivals are officially in full swing! For those who haven't been, these major parties are often life-changing events. Here are GRACESHIP's favorite, fresh and new songs from this summer's hottest artists who you can see live this summer:

"Disparate Youth" - Santigold

On Saturday, August 4, find Santigold in Chicago's Grant Park at Lollapalooza.  The track Disparate Youth can be found on her up and coming album, Master of My Make-Believe (out on May 1).  Full of funky beats and catchy lyrics, this tune will have you dancing in no time.  Santigold is also on the roster at other music festivals and concerts around the world, so check out her tour page to see when she's headed your way.


"The Rifle's Spiral" - The Shins 

Also at Lollapalooza this year are indie veterans, The Shins.  After planning an extensive, international tour and releasing their new album, Port of Morrow, The Shins are virtually unstoppable.  Their new song, The Rifle's Spiral, is quirky and upbeat.  The undertones of the keyboard, mixed with the thumping bass lines and a constant drum beat are some of of our favorite parts.

"What You Know" - Two Door Cinema Club

Lollapalooza is still a few months away, but Bonnaroo is coming up quick.  One, must-see, band at Bonnaroo is Two Door Cinema Club.  This three-piece band isn't new to the circuit, but they rank high on our summer playlist of feel-good music.  Have a listen and you'll find out why.

If you plan on making moves at one of these monumental events, be sure to take your GRACESHIP bag. It's the perfect size to stash all of your festival necessities for a day of fun in the sun!


Introducing the World's BEST Eyelash Curler

During the morning rush, there is rarely enough time for a full face of make-up. One of the best ways to quickly brighten your look for that cute co-worker is curling your eyelashes. While many of the lash devices out there are somewhat tricky to tackle, our staff's favorite curler crushes the competition!

The Japonesque Go Curl Pocket Curler is the easiest, best designed curler we have ever set our eyes on. Unlike many metal curlers, this device won't pinch your pretty little lashes.

While compact in size, its wide plastic lever flips out, making it much easier to grasp. A simple pinch motion compresses the pad on your lash and locks it into place.

Best of all, your purchase is comes with an unlimited FREE supply of cushion refills for the entire life of the curler! This guarantees you'll always be equipped to have eyes that others envy. This tiny tool from Japonesque is available at Amazon.com, ULTA, and many other fine beauty stores.

To intensify the effects of this eyelash curler, I personally pair it up with my favorite mascara - L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black.

A steal at only $8 a tube, this bargain beauty find works just as well if not better than many designer brand mascaras. It loads your lashes with both volume and fullness, creating an ultra flirty look! You can conveniently find it at almost any neighborhood drugstore.

Try out these lash products we love and you will brighten your look for work in just a wink!

Brother and Sister duo, Doug and Rachel Pfeffer have come up with a unique way to transfer your pictures onto pillows that you can keep forever.  Based out of Washington D.C., the duo digitally print the photos onto a linen-cotton canvas and then hand-stitch the front and back together.
