Just like neon and ombre are making big statements this year, so are metallics.
Mike Meyer’s character Goldmember from the Austin Powers movies might hands down be one of my favorites. He was clearly ahead of his time with his love for gold. Today, 11 years after the film’s release, it’s easy to spot sharp silvers and lustrous bronzes everywhere from skirts and handbags, to nail polishes and eye shadows. We often get asked if we have glassybaby in gold, silver or even bronze tones. Unfortunately it’s a color palette that’s really hard for us to achieve. Most metallic color bars tend to have an opaque quality that doesn’t give you that “glassybaby glow”, and what’s a glassybaby without color AND light? Fortunately we can work our color magic and create metallic palettes that would make the lovers of all-things-shiny happy I love this gold palette that lit the night at a recent award show party.

‘wingman’ is a phrase that was coined to describe a pilot who supports another in a potentially dangerous flying environment. Outside the context of flying, a ‘wingman’ is someone who watches your back and provides mutual support. Who couldn’t use a ‘wingman’ in their life?
June is National Men’s Health month and the perfect time to be a ‘wingman’ to the important men in your life: dad, husband, brother, child or friend. Most men do not seek out medical care, and many take better care of their cars than they do themselves! Remind the men in your life that they need to be healthy, stay healthy and get regular medical check-ups. To purchase ‘wingman’, click here.
Summertime = bright colors, summer nights lit by glassybaby, and of course travelling.
Our uber-talented, free-spirited and always (I mean ALWAYS) fashionable roadshow manager Brittany is travelling to Sonoma, California next week for a little mini vacation. Never one to stop working, it was no surprise that she managed to work in some visits to the local wineries in hopes of bringing glassybaby light and color into some of their fabulous spaces. She asked me to provide a color palette that covered the “full spectrum” of our colors, something that captures “every aspect of our collection.” Seems easy enough, right? Well, here’s the catch…it needs to be no more than 16 colors to fit into one of our ever resilient and well-traveled 16-pack box. With upwards of 200+ colors in our current palette, this could be quite a challenge…but a challenge that I am happy to take on! After some careful thought, here is what I came up with (please see above image.)
Safe travels Britt!

here’s what our community had to say…
“I always think of my Dad a Navy pilot. Wonderful man.” — Celia E.
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .
Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
— John Gillespie Magee, Jr
“I bought Wingman not too long ago… My son is a Helicopter pilot in the army and refers to each of his little boys as his “wingman”!!! Every time I light it.. I think of my son and his boys that live in Georgia!” — Patty R.
