Life is often out of our control but your eyewear shouldn’t be . That’s why celebs like Jessica Alba and Sienna Miller are loving L.A based website Lookmatic, where your computer does most of the work, allowing consumers to custom create high-quality Rx and sunglasses at home. Frames in 80 styles start at just $95. Don’t virtual try-ons in your pajamas sound way more appealing than sitting in traffic to go to your local optical store? www.lookmatic.com

Cat Cora doesn’t turn to Italy for her EVOO. The Greek-American Iron Chef makes it herself. The TV personality/author (“Classics with a Twist”) has hitched her wagon to a Mediterranean cuisine company to develop Cat Cora’s Kitchen by Gaea, a line of olive oils, plus tapenades, sauces and vinegars. Find them on the cooking power house’s website, www.catcora.com

When Ellie Goulding needs a skin pick-me-up, the English singer turns to her medicine cabinet. What’s been staring back at her lately: Rodial’s Bee Venom 24 Carat Gold Super Essence, a product with serious plumping punch (but no sting). The luxe product just launched this monthat www.planetbeauty.com retailing for oh, just $420. Though she could afford 10 bottles, Goulding was likely gifted the skin illuminator, because she thanked the company on her Instagram account with a pic. “Needed it!” she wrote next to a tired emoticon and kisses.

Shop

Christopher Radko knows Christmas. Known for its attention to detail and handcrafted workmanship, the North Carolina company has been putting out mouth-blown European glass ornaments for more than a quarter century. This year called for a team-up with Godiva and the adorable bauble with Santa and a box of chocolates that’s good enough to eat (but, no, sorry, not edible). The little chubby guy is $25 with any $40 purchase.

Gift
