4 Weeks of Twimas- Oh crap you’re screwed!

Dear Friends-

We’re in the home stretch to Christmas and this is pretty much like the last week you can order anything online and hope to have it arrive by the time Santa comes down that chimney next week. So with that in mind we’ve come up with a few more gifts ideas cause if you’re like me, about half your list is still needing a check mark. AHHH!!!

We’ve got some doozies for you today!

A little taste of the Strata Collection

First off my pal and creator of the one-of-a-kind necklace I had made for UC on our 1st blogging anniversary last year: Tiffany Kunz Design. Do you like jewelry (duh) do you like super hip and modern design? Do you like really cool girls? Well then Tiff is your girl! She currently has four collections available online, everything from bracelets to earrings to necklaces to a MEN’S line! Hello tie clips! Tiff uses rough stones, reclaimed metals and hand hammered to make unique (and green!) designs. All moderately priced as well, I might add. Stock up on staples like the earrings and rings from the Nascent collection or get the newest stuff from the Plumb or Strata line. Tiff’s designs have been featured in many magazines on and some big time celebs. Get something for your friend/sister/mom/dad or Yourself. Oh and don’t have any more gifts to get right now? I have it on good authority (aka my own eyes) that this years special Valentine’s designs are outta this world. Seriously!

Whitelight for you!

Have a big Twilight fan in your life (besides you) and need something cool? Maybe you have friend you want to read the books but your loaner set is, well, on loan? How about ordering the limited edition WHITE cover Twilight Saga for them. It comes in paperback, with white covers and crimson tipped pages. Kinda like Stephenie Meyer wrote till she bleed on them just for you. Ok, weird but don’t they look cool? And affordable! Only catch? You have to order them from Amazon UK or Waterstones. But no problem, that’s why we have the interwebs!

And don’t forget the lovely Adrienne and her amazing artwork. We’ve also updated the LTT store with a few brand new designs (Spoiler: Calendars!! and MOANtreal makes an appearance) and all the other weeks of Twimas can be seen HERE!

If all else fails get a gift card!

Merry Holidays!

4 Weeks of Twimas – Give Back aka we donate an Alpaca in Taylor Lautners name!

Dear LTT-ers,

So we’ve been taking every Tuesday to share some great ideas for holiday gifts this year be it Twilight/Rob related or not! We’re here to make your life easier by bringing you all the best.

So we’ve brought you some fun gift ideas these last two weeks but we thought this week we’d bring you come good alternatives to traditional gifts. This week we present you with a few great gift ideas with a deeper meaning and cause. Not only will they mean something more than a thoughtful gift they’re affordable ways to give back and raise awareness about many causes. If you’re like me and have some of those hard to buy for people on your list (DAD! Stylish Boss!) than I present you some gifts in every price range with big heart!

Falling Whistles

Falling Whistles
We wrote about this amazing cause over at LTR when I found a picture of Kellan wearing a Falling Whistles Necklace which led to contact with a great gal at FW and leads us to want to keep sharing this amazing story and the necklace it inspired with you guys. Do you have a fashion and justice minded person on your shopping list this season? A Falling Whistles necklace might just be the thing for them! FW is a campaign for peace in the Congo and asks us to be whistle blowers for peace and change. Not only to stop the war but to raise awareness about child soldiers  and our world’s largest war still going on.

Learn more about Falling Whistles and buy your very own HERE!

Raven + Lily

Raven and Lily
Raven + Lily is a non-profit studio dedicated to empowering marginalized women through design partnerships and micro-enterprise opportunities. They support women’s empowerment programs that comply with fair trade standards and provide design focused micro-enterprise training. In addition, proceeds from each product are returned to assist with community development.

Welcome to one of my favorite companies and I just happen to know not only some of the ladies who help run and design for Raven + Lily, I have also met and bought amazing jewelry from some of the artists themselves in Kenya. Raven + Lily not only has amazing jewelry, they also have home goods, stationary, bath & body, baby goods and accessories made from women all over the world (Kenya, India, Burundi, Ethiopia and Los Angeles).

Learn more and shop Raven + Lily HERE

Oxfam

Oxfam
Or if you’re more into the furry kind of gifts, you can do what UC and I are doing by sponsoring an Alpaca Meadow through Oxfam! For 75 dollars you can donate, in your recipients name, an Alpaca Meadow (or chickens, or a herd of goats or childrens school uniforms, etc the list goes on!) and Oxfam partners with an individual in need to provide them a way to provide for their families and help stop the cycle of poverty. So this Christmas somewhere in the Andes Mountains a person in need will be given an Alpaca in the name of Taylor Lautner and LTT readers everywhere from Moon and UC!

Learn more about Oxfam and ways you can contribute HERE

So if you were stumped on what to get some of your list this year I hope we helped un-stump you. Or least showed you some of our favorite places to give back and helped educate more folks out there of some amazing causes helping people all over the world. These are definitely not the only places you can support this holiday season. Check your local Boys and Girls Club/Church/School/Salvation Army/etc for more great local places to volunteer and give back this holiday season!

Merry Christmukkahwanza Festivolstice!
Moon and UC

The Four Weeks of Twimas – Get Your Shop On!

Dear LTT-ers and LTR-ers,

It’s that time of year again, black friday is around the corner and the holidays are upon us. That means it’s time to stock up on gifts and time for us to clean out the LTT LTR store and make room for new stuff!

Over the next few weeks leading up to Christmas/Hanukkah/Solstice/Festivus/Jewmas whatever you celebrate we’re gonna highlight some of our favorite (twilight and NON twi related) stuff we’ve come across from either our sponsors, our friends or just our aimless wanderings across the web that might make a good gift. And today we start with the LTT/LTR store since it’s closest to home AND since today is the last day you can use the Friends and Family discount at Cafe Press!

Need to write down your deepest darkest secrets (you tried and hated Hot Pockets) or need a place to write down story ideas for your latest fic or maybe you just want an exact replica of the notebook we gave Stephenie Meyer (Fade to Sad version of course!) then hit up the notebooks. The cool thing about the store is that most designs are available on a variety of items so mix and match till your hearts content.  12.99

Have an iPhone? Need a cover that professes your love for Twi and Rob but don’t want to draw attention to the fact you may have downloaded the official Twi app? There are a beavy of iPhone covers for you! 3 and 4G versions! 24.99

Cause your tree or that Secret Santa gift exchange with your Twilight friends isn’t complete without a LTT/LTR themed ornament! UC and I have a personalized one with our bright shining faces on it! May I suggest the Buttcrack Santa one? 8.99

Ok so probably the thing I’ve used the MOST from the store is my SIGG water bottle in the Breaking it Down design. That thing has been to Kenya and back, all over LA and resides in my handbag at ALL times. BEST.THING.EVER. 27.99

Tons of baby gear in the kiddos section. We know we’ve had a few LTT/LTR babies born since we started so get em decked out in ironic onsies and bibs about vampires, duh! Same goes for your pooch. Your Chihuahua better represent for the wolfpack or he’ll be the shame of the dogpark

And really what else solidifies your bff-ship with someone like a pair of Fake Lesbian boy shorts? In pink of course. Make your friend AND their husband/boyfriend/fake lesbian partner happy! 15.99

Get at it pals only 31 days left!!!
Moon & UC

PS if you buy something from the store don’t forget the friends and family code to save moola! Meaning you can save $10 on orders of $50+ (use code: Friend10) from November 20-23. LAST DAY IS TODAY!

Have something you want us to feature/review/sponsor in the 4 weeks of Twimas specials? Email us and stay tuned for our fave stuff in the coming weeks!

Have you bought anything from the store? Share your favorite stuff!
