As you probably know, Monday is the annual Boston Marathon!
If you're braving the infamous Heartbreak Hill then you deserve a great reward, I mean, besides a sense of personal accomplishment and being in amazing shape.
And don't the real best rewards come in little green boxes?
To that end Tiffany & Co. has launched a limited edition tag charm to celebrate the 2011 marathon!
This four-leaf clover charm would be perfect on a bracelet or necklace especially as a gift for your favorite marathon runner! And for an extra personal touch Tiffany's master engraver will be on hand at the Copley location Saturday and Sunday to hand engrave the charm with names or race numbers!
Best of luck to all of you marathoners!

Every year I forget to celebrate my blog's birthday!
Bostonista officially turned three yesterday!
I'm not where I thought I would be three years ago and neither is Bostonista but all in all it has been a pretty good run so far!
Thanks to all of my readers, friends, and family for the support!
It really means so much to me!
I'm looking forward to another year of fashion blogging!
Last week the Olsens made a surprising announcement- they're teaming up with BeachMint (the company behind Kate Bosworth's popular JewelMint.Com) to launch StyleMint.Com in July.
StyleMint is an opt-out monthly subscription e-commerce site.
What the hell does that mean?
When you join the site (signing up is free) you'll take a quick personal style quiz that helps to generate your style profile. Each month a new collection arrives on the site and uses your style profile to make recommendations. If you like a style you can purchase it for $29.99.
StyleMint will carry an exclusive t-shirt line by the twins that will change every month. Beginning in July the site will have eight styles available in multiple colors made from a cotton and modal blend. You'll be able to post your recommendations and purchases to your Facebook or twitter accounts to get your friend's opinions (a virtual dressing room!) and find exclusive Olsen content (such as video interviews or styling tips).
This is Ashley and MK's fifth fashion line in nearly as many years and if the success of the previous four are any indication StyleMint is only going to grow right out of the gate!
Even though the site isn't launching until July membership is limited so you'll want to sign up now to ensure access!
(FYI: The links here bring you to my personal invite links for which I may gain membership points or shopping credits.)

Well, sort of.
Here is Gemma on a Harper's Australian supplement- here first cover since 2008.
She's talking about her debut on the Australian stage and her small role as a mermaid in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean 4.
Hopefully an HQ picture will show up soon!

My April Obsessions...
Like everyone else right now I'm addicted to lavender nail polish. I'd been trying to get my hands on Essie's much coveted Liliacism (as seen below) but it seems to be sold out everywhere!
Lilacism is a sheer, almost white purple while the new Nice is Nice from Essie's French Affair collection is a deeper purple with undertones of gray. I finally found Nice is Nice at a local Target today and it looks exactly on trend once its applied!
White Lace Mini-Dresses:
Ever since I saw MK in this white, lace dress at the premiere of New York Minute in 2004 I've been in love with short, white lace dresses.
A few months after the premiere both girls rocked white lace dress by Magda Berliner and my love was cemented.
Until recently I never felt thin enough to actually try the look out- lets face it sheer tight white is not exactly an easy look to wear. But this spring and summer I'm throwing caution to the wind and hunting for the ultimate white lace dress. Perhaps something along the lines of this sweet little number...
Hot Pink Lips:
Classic red lips have never really worked on me. I'm pale, blonde and doll faced so you'd think they'd work on me in a Scarlett Johansson sort of bombshell way but, for whatever reason, they just don't.
But how else to get a powerful pout?
I'm turning to hot pink lipstick.
I'd read that both Kate and Alexis were wearing Clarin's Hot Pink Joli Rouge lipstick so I ran out to get it. I ended up with two colors of La Rouge Parisian Pink and Hot Pink. While both of them are certainly pretty neither achieved the look I was going for so my search continues!
Does anyone have any hot pink suggestions?

After months of speculation we finally know what Carine Roitfeld's post-Paris Vogue first step will be!
She's signed on as Barneys guest editor and stylist for A/W 2011/2012!
As far as I can tell she's basically free-lancing (something she wasn't really allowed to do at Paris Vogue) which means she'll be able to do this as well as any other project she chooses.
But what does this job entail?
She'll be styling and editing Barney's fall advertising campaign, catalogue, and email newsletters along with being in charge of the store's infamous Madison Avenue window displays! On the retail side, it seems Ms. Roitfeld will also be advising Barneys buyers or at least be their muse for the direction of what they'll be carrying for the season.
Plus, there may be a short film to coincide with the fall campaign
Carine told WWD that this opportunity is a dream come true, "For me, Barneys has always been the biggest name in luxury department stores, so to be able to participate in this project with them, and be visible during the next fashion week in New York, is my dream come true. To a French girl, it’s a big, big dream.”
