WHAT TO GET THE DIVA IN YOUR LIFEDiva Vodka is a wheat-based vodka that is triple distilled and filtered through Nordic birch charcoal and then filtered through precious gems like diamonds, emerald and rubies. The bottle contains a glass tube filled with crystals that can be used as a garnish. The 48 crystals in each bottle include cubic zircona, smoky topaz, pink tourmaline, amethyst, citrine and peridot. What is more interesting is that the crystals in each bottle are hand-prepared and each person has a favorite color and puts this at the bottom of the column so that the bottle can be traced back to the individual. If you want to get really fancy they also offer a service where they will fill the tube with precious gems. The basic version sells for around $60.
The Daily Telgraph reports that the world's most expensive face cream has just gone on sale in Britain.

The treatment lasts three weeks and is supposed to go on under the Creme de la Mer face cream. When used twice per year, it promises to reduce lines and minimize pores. Over 100 have already been sold at Harrods. It comes in three vials in a magnetized box and contains a variety of exotic ingredients including sea parsley and essence of narcissus.
