Fine eyewear is an accessory both men and women covet, framing their faces and bringing their style personality out in front. This October luxury eyewear designer, Gold & Wood, will celebrate fifteen years as an elite craftsman in the industry. As part of this milestone event the company will release a Special Anniversary Edition Aviator in both a men's and women's unique style. These signature spectacles will both showcase 24-carat gold coated lenses in yellow gold on the women's version and white gold on the men's. The women's pair will also feature luxurious Acajou wood temples while the men's pair is highlighted by polished buffalo horn temples. Known for their extreme care during the crafting process and use of exclusive materials it's no wonder why celebrities like Stevie Wonder and Angelina Jolie have been wearing them for years.
Unlike anything you've seen before, RogueDZN creates jewelry purposely not following any trend nor is it cast or plated. Each piece of jewelry is machine crafted from billet block, Military Spec. G5 aerospace grade titanium. Although more commonly used to build spacecrafts, aircrafts, naval ships, armor plating and surgical implants, RogueDZN machines this tough material into both masculine and feminine designs from rings to necklaces and earrings. Each piece is also individually serial numbered making it a one of a kind. Based out of Laguna Beach, California, RogueDZN's merchandise ranges from $1,000 to $4,800.

Whether you are leaving town for an extended period of time or just popping down to the beach for an afternoon, GoCrib makes sure baby can sleep while you're on the move. Stuffed into a backpack this inflatable, lightweight, safe crib goes anywhere you travel. No frames to lock into place or complicated set-up, the GoCrib simply inflates in less than a minute through a dual-action pump or deflates through locked-open valves. Additionally, the GoCrib is constructed of anti-puncture materials free of lead, PVC, phthalates, and AZO dye.
Built for ages 0-3 for rest and ages 0-5 for play, the GoCrib is the same internal size as a typical playpen but only weighs eleven pounds including the pump, backpack and crib. That is almost half the weight of typical pack n' plays! Modern, fresh and practical this innovative bed for baby retails for $249.99 through creator Guava Family with free shipping and a 1-year limited warranty. I'm getting one for sure -- between soccer games, trips to the mountains and afternoons at the pool it is a cool essential I don't want to leave behind.

Overlooking both the mountains and the ocean this estate gives one the best of both worlds.

It is likely you'll run into a celebrity or two along the way as well.

I am in love...with a handbag. It is clear to me this bag was made just for me! I really like the mix of leather and suede, the special detailing and especially this shade of pink. The Marti Suede Clutch is petite, girly and colorful in fuchsia leather and merlot suede marked with twisted leather and zip details on the front. The handbag can be carried as a clutch or slipped over the shoulder with the strap which can also be tucked inside. Complete with internal zip pocket, magnetic front fastening and black canvas lining it is a steal for $295. (24" x 6" x 3" with 9" strap)
Start the weekend off right stopping at your favorite cafe with magazines, papers and catalogs in hand to peruse over your soy latte. Anya Hindmarch can get you there in style with her signature tote featuring just such periodicals as these.

Gold-tone designer embossed hardware and a handy internal zipped pocket for latte cash rounds out this off-duty bag for just $110. (19" x 13" x 6" with 7" handle drop)
Classic greets modern in this elegant handbag from Lanvin. An instant staple in any wardrobe the navy-blue leopard-print beckons to be worn with a suit to a luncheon or simply to make a great first impression on an unsuspecting suitor. High-class with a bit of fun, the Happy Medium Leather Shoulder Bag features a shoulder strap of two gold-tone chains intermixed with black patent leather and a black grosgrain ribbon with bow. The fold-over flap is secured with a twist-lock fastening at the front and the silk-lined interior with designer stamp is marked with a zipped pocket to finish the look for $1,775. Personally, I think navy-blue is a nice change from black with just as much versatility, don't you? (13" x 9" x 2" with 15" handle drop)
