Social Gifting Wednesday on Wrapp

If you haven’t heard of Wrapp, downloading the app is the easiest way to give free or paid gift cards to your Facebook friends at a moment’s notice – which really comes in handy when you kind of forget someone’s birthday and are only suddenly reminded by the string of birthday comments on your news feed (am I the only one who’s guilty of this?).

Today, November 21st, dubbed by Wrapp as “Social Gifting Wednesday”, many retailers such as Sephora, Levi’s, Warby Parker, Rent the Runway, Fab.com, and Hayneedle, will be providing free gift cards, each worth $10 or more, that Wrapp users can give to friends and family, no strings attached. To get you started on your holiday shopping, Wrapp is also giving 200 of Bubbles & Ink’s readers free gift cards to Threadless.com. Just click here to get yours after you become a member. Happy shopping!

For Mom

Today’s Happy Hour post is dedicated to the Mom in your life. The lady who held your hand when you were low and gave you good advice even when you really didn’t want it. The lady who’s put up with you through your adolescent, college, and bad boyfriend years. The lady who still loves you despite your faults – and actually thinks you’re the best thing to ever happen to her, no matter what. Here’s to the moms who know better and aren’t afraid to say so – because it’s for your own good, dammit.

These gifts are all under $100 and go one step beyond the usual flowers and card. Go ahead and buy a little something for mom to show her you may not be done making her crazy, but you can surely make the experience a little sweeter. Happy Mother’s Day, all. And thanks for all you do.

Nordstrom Trend Show – Miami 2011

Year after year, I look forward to the Nordstrom Trend Show, and this year’s production was as entertaining as watching their crowd of well-dressed ladies bolt for a red-carpeted entrance in hopes of snagging a front-row seat for the action.

Luckily, my blogger status guaranteed me front row access (but not without the occasional elbow to the rib). Still, I’m happy to share my experience (and slight bruises) with you.

Below, some snapshots of the action at the Merrick Park location of one of my favorite places. If you’re still looking for a gift, this is one of the few places I know of that isn’t completely unbearable during the usual holiday madness.
