Harry Potter-Inspired Sweaters


Hermione Have you guys seen Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows yet? It's full of magic, a little kissing and the most amazing sweaters. Seriously, Harry, Ron and Hermione wear the types of sweaters that make you want to snuggle by a fire in Vermont and eat maple candy... just like these:

Light & Lofty Fair Isle Long Sweater, American Eagle ($55). Extra long so that spot in between the bottom of your sweater and your jeans won't hang out!

Cable-Knit Tie-Belt Cardigan, Old Navy ($25, on sale). Warm and fuzzy with a flattering waist-cinch. Very Ginny Weasley.

Freeport Fair Isle Cardigan, LL Bean ($69). Choose from four colors with an abstract neckline, or one filled with happy dogs (it's cuter than that sounds).

Cocoon Cover Up, Wet Seal ($10, on sale). Short sleeves and a hood make this the perfect layering piece for winter.

Aspen Sweater, Spotted Moth ($47). Black, white and cozy all over. Even Voldemort would approve!

A Thankful Thanksgiving!


Anne and melissa ihd(2) Get out the cranberry sauce and gravy! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! But, let's forget about the pumpkin pie and stuffing for just a moment. As the holiday's name indicates, tomorrow is a day to give thanks (and not just for food).

It's very important to take a moment and give thanks for all the little and big things in our life. So, Melissa and I are dedicating today to this idea! Here we go:

Melissa: I'm thankful for stylish recyclers, makeup that makes bad look good, and cool girls who help the world!

Anne: I'm thankful for sweet treats, cute notebooks, rock 'n' roll, baby animals, do-gooders, a good cup of coffee, mom, dad, brother, friends, and of course, all the I Heart Daily readers!

What are you thankful for? Why don't you tell us?

Gobble, gobble! See you on Monday!

3 Glitter Knockouts


01opisephora Holiday season is in full effect! That means turkey, stuffing, trimming and... glitter!

I think everyone has a penchant for glitter -- it's an instant mood lifter, and who doesn't like a little sparkle? <insert jazz hands>

Here are three beauty products certain to introduce a little pizazz into your life.

Holiday Gem Collection, Sephora ($9 each). This limited-edition holiday line has seven shades full of sparkle and shimmer. Only Gold For Me (pictured) has chunky and micro gold glitter, which looks great by itself or as a top coat.

Glitter Liquid Eyeliner, Bobbi Brown ($20). So, this liner is a little pricey, but it's worth the bucks, because it's incredibly easy to apply and makes your eyes pop and shine.

Glitz Stick - Sparking Crayon, Hard Candy ($5). When you were a kid, didn't you used to want to color all over yourself with makers? Now you can with Hard Candy's body glitter crayons for your eyes, cheeks, lips and body.

Temporary Tattoos That Look Real


Temptu Tattoos are more popular than ever -- and they're even more removable these days. But really? You need to be SURE you want that Celtic knot/butterfly/heart/cascade of stars before you go under the needle.

Or, you can just turn to Temptu, a company that offers temporary tattoos with 2-5-day wearability. The best part? They look totally real -- not like the Cracker Jack box variety. With a unique, cosmetic-grade ink formula in true-tattoo color, the tattoo applies cleanly and evenly. Change up your ink every few days. It's like a new accessory!

The Girly Chic Kit ($25) includes the above-mentioned stars and butterflies, while the Zen Chic Kit ($25) is more flowers and fans and the Tribal Chic Kit ($25, pictured) has abstract style. There's even a limited-edition Dereon Kit by Tina Knowles ($16), and you can see Beyonce all inked up here.

If you're feeling the seasonal spirit, try the Holiday Glitz and Glam Kit ($30), which includes nine tattoo design sheets (3 sets of 3 distinct designs) and 20 tattoo application pads, plus gold and silver setting powders. Set a snowflake on your shoulder or wrap your ankle in festive bows!

And if you simply want a cool one-sheet of those temporary tattoos we all know and love, try Temptu's themed display cards (just $3 each), which include everything from dragons to endangered animals to cute little aliens.

Try Temptu Tattoos for fun, to practice for the real thing or to freak out your relatives around the holiday dinner table!
