Love These!

Okay, so I am going to finally let some people in on a little secret place I like to visit for a cute, stylish gift: Cheetahrama. I love these amazing compacts, vanity cases and business card holders. I recently ordered one of Deborah Gregory's Billie Holiday business card holders as a Christmas present to myself. I discovered her items while perusing Essence Magazine several years ago. Her chic accessories feature divas of the past like Ella Fitzgerald, Pam Grier, Billie Holiday, Josephine Baker and most recently Dorothy Dandridge. This would be an amazing and unique bridesmaid gift or a great gift for the friend in your life who has everything or who loves old school divas of the past.

In addition to making these fabulous accessories, Deborah is also the author of the "Cheetah Girls" young adult book series, which eventually spawned a movie or two. I also spotted Deborah on TV a few times commenting on pop culture. I love Deborah's customer service (essentially when you order she answers you personally!). I love supporting small businesses particularly by women and people of color.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Pam Grier as Foxy Brown. She's a badass. Period. I have this vanity case.

Ms. Billie Holiday. This is my business card holder. :)

The Original Diva: Ms. Josephine Baker

Definitely check out Deborah's work!
