Every savvy traveler makes sure that their essentials are organized, folded and tucked just right to fit into that overhead bin. Packing cubes keep it tight and tidy, but we're going to throw one more travel essential into the mix — Benevolence LA's Plush Velvet Travel Jewelry Box. It's one of Oprah's Favorite Things, and you can get the top-seller on Amazon for as low as just $13 (marked down from $25) as part of the retailer's early Cyber Monday sale.
Oprah agrees that this soft velvet-covered container is a treasure in itself. It's less than four inches in diameter but has enough compartments to neatly hold a surprising amount of bling, and it comes in jewel tones like deep red and emerald green or softer hues like pale pink and orange (prices vary).
Keeping your prized jewelry safe during your travels is really worth its weight in, well, gold. After all, no one wants to get to their destination and find that their favorite necklaces are now all tangled together and have to be brought in for repairs — an undertaking that can certainly become costly. You also run the risk of losing items from your collection if they're scattered across your packing, or thrown into a makeup bag. With this simple storer — an impressive nearly 40% off right now in the orange shade — there's a place for every piece and every piece will be in one place.
Why do I need this?
We first spotted this little gem on Oprah's Favorite Things 2022 list. “Nobody wants their jewelry jingle-jangling freely in their suitcase," Oprah said. "This jazzy velvet travel case keeps your prized pieces stylishly contained with spaces for rings, bracelets and necklaces. And it’s small enough to stash in your purse.” If it's good enough for Oprah, it's definitely good enough for us!
One thoughtful husband said he gave it as "a gift for my wife, and she loves it!" He continued: "In the past, she has used Ziploc bags and plastic hotel cups to store her jewelry when traveling. This is a huge upgrade! She said it is the perfect size for travel, feels solid ... Now she’s ready to plan a trip."
Fans are particularly taken by the high quality and convertibility. "Perfect gift for any traveler or jewelry lover," wrote an impressed shopper. "Nicely put together, metal part of zipper even wrapped to prevent scratching. Dividers on left side are removable to personalize and rings stay nicely on the right! Better-than-expected quality!"
Another happy gift-giver wrote: "I bought this as a gift for a friend who is traveling soon. After receiving it ... I decided to order myself one, too! Very convenient size — not too big ... but you can fit a decent amount of jewelry in there. Will help keep necklaces and dangling earrings from tangling while traveling. Love that it has a tiny mirror included."
Yes, people are gifting this pretty velvet box left and right. But, um, sometimes it's the thought that counts ... right? "Wonderful gift ... even better than I thought," began a fan. "Bought as a gift for my cousin, but ended up keeping it for myself! Love it!" (Oops.)
By the way, this "fancy and practical" box is not just for travel either, noted another pleased shopper. "I keep it on my dresser for jewelry that I wear daily."
And who said it's just for femme jewels? The navy or sage versions (both on sale for $20) would certainly make a great little tie clip and cufflink holder, too.

Aside from their fab price (over 40% off!), we love the real-time power readout on the front of the case of these earbuds, making it so much easier than pulling out your phone and swiping to find out how much charge is left. The top number shows how much juice is in the case, while the two smaller indicators show readings for each bud. Pretty smart! But that's not their only innovative feature: These buds have everything you'd expect in a quality pair. On-ear controls let you answer calls, skip songs and activate Siri.

This No. 1 bestselling, TikTok-famous compact carpet cleaner packs a punch, especially considering it weighs less than 10 pounds! Its powerful suction can be used to remove stains not just from rugs, but furniture and even car upholstery, too. Plus, it comes with a self-cleaning hose tool and a bottle of Bissell's Spot & Stain with Febreeze. We haven't seen this viral cleaner priced much lower than it currently is in years (it was only a few bucks cheaper back in July for Prime Day) — and when you consider how much money it'll save you in professional cleaning bills (and replacement furniture), it'll pay for itself in just a few uses.
With its 6-quart capacity, this gorgeous air fryer can hold enough food for five to seven people, yet its small footprint won't take up too much space on your counter. Its patent-pending TurboCrisp technology helps ensure quick, even cooking with that crunch factor we all crave (though you'll be able to cook with as much as 75% less fat than deep-frying). The user-friendly touchscreen lights up while in use and features time and temperature settings (from 90-400 degrees Fahrenheit), as well as four functions: Air Fry, Roast, Reheat and Dehydrate, the latter of which is a cool feature that isn't always included with air fryers.

The durable metal rod extends as far as 32 inches for easy reaching and folds down for space-saving storage when not in use. Its rubber claws ensure a secure hold, and its grips are also equipped with magnets for lifting metallic items small and large.

The expenses can get overwhelming during the holiday season because it always feels like there's something more to spend on. Even though the expenses can feel like they're piling up, the good news is...
At one point or another, during the hustle and bustle of a past holiday season, you probably realized at the last minute that you forgot to buy a gift (or two). Instead of getting caught like a deer...
For those who have never dealt with the issue, hat hair refers to the matted, mussed, slightly oily mane that your left with after hours (or for some even moments) of donning a cap. Hats may be an ideal means of protecting a blowout from the elements during a commute, sealing in heat during time spent outside, or simply punctuating an outfit, but easing a foreign object over your mane is a surefire means of changing it—for better or for worse. “[Hat hair] is inevitable if you are pressing hair down, plus there's the heat that naturally occurs from wearing something warm on your head,” says hairstylist Justine Marjan.

An artist spends five hours painting intricate designs on nails, charges £95 a set and has even included a real butterfly's wings in one design. Chii Paris, 22, has been painting the stunning designs for just 12 months and already has celebrity clients on her roster after doing American R&B singer SZA's nails. She took up the job after deciding to combine the artistic skills she learnt during her fashion degree with working at her mum's nail salon in Uxbridge, West London. She spends up to five painstaking hours on each intricate design - which includes 4D poison dart frogs, Spongebob and Winnie the Pooh. Clients pay anywhere from £50 to £95 to have their nails sculpted with sculpting gels - which Chii calls the nail version of "Play-Doh." After deciding on a design and starting the initial sculpture, Chii then cures the nails in between each component. She then finishes off the nails by painting the sculptures with multiple layers of gel polish. Her most complex design came when a customer with a love of taxidermy asked her to put real butterfly wings into their nails - which took her a staggering three and a half hours. Chii, from Uxbridge, West London, said: "That one was a challenge. "It was great fun though and I like doing things that I haven't done before, that was the craziest one. "I don't actually have a favourite one - I've been so lucky to do so many different ones. "But I enjoy doing the sculptures ones the most - it's the closest to me being an artist rather than just a nail tech. "A lot of the sculpture stuff is super last minute - I don't really know how others work but I'm able to just look at the picture and think I'll be able to figure it out. "I don't do a lot of prepping in that sense, for materials and vision. "It can be tricky, of course, but when you've done similar stuff you can re-apply it." Chii launched her business just over a year ago after graduating from WHERE with a fashion marketing degree. Having already developed her painting skills through her degree, Chii decided to swap the canvas for nails. She said: "I think that's why I leant more towards nail art - it gives me an opportunity to showcase my art. "The style itself was easy to do but going from a canvas to a nail bed wasn't easy." Chii's designs have proved incredibly popular, with people telling her to up her prices. She said: "I thought maybe I was underselling myself. "My perception, considering how long I've been doing it, is it's a bit higher than usual. "It's nice to know your work is of value. "I try to be fair and be considerate and I think it's something I can charge in the future. "I need to have a bit more confidence in myself. "I've had thousands of people telling me I could charge a lot more." Chii's work has even caught the eye of celebrities, with American singer-songwriter, SZA paying for a set. "She was on tour in London, and one of her dancers wanted her nails done," Chii said. "But then her manager messaged me 48 hours later saying that SZA herself wanted them done too. "I'd only been doing nails for a couple of months so it was very unexpected and more so for myself I thought maybe I was good at this. "They were super block colour, 3D chrome nails. "Really colourful, every nail was a different colour combo with airbrush contrasting colours."
