Need gift for 35 year old woman -HELP

I need a birthday gift for a glamourous 35 year old daughter of a close friend. Not a book nor a gift voucher, nothing for kitchen or home, more like beauty or fashion oriented of which she has a lot but never mind, it's the thought that counts -right? Something I can wrap and hand to them. She wears about a size 8. Budget of around $50 or £30-£40. I am really stumped-please help and thank you. And I did search previous questions.

I need to find the best barber in the Boulder, CO area

I've just moved to Boulder from NYC and I'm looking for an experienced, no-frills men's barber that can handle a classic tapered haircut. I have had great Russian barbers in NYC but this is CO, and I can't find much. Looking for a barber that can handle an all scissors cut and one that is relegated to guard clippers. I'm willing to travel to a nearby area but would prefer not having to make the trip to Denver.

Nail polish that is free of chemicals but won't chip

Do you know a nail polish that is fee of chemicals like formaldehyde, etc.? I think they call it the 4 free or 5 free.........I tried the polish called "Butter" but it chipped right away. I'm willing to even just have 2 or 3 free if I can have a polish that does not chip the next day. I'm just trying to find something with "less" chemicals than the normal polish. Thanks.

Activities for a fashion and beauty fanatic in London and Paris

We have booked our trip to London and Paris this summer-yay! My 17 year old daughter will be with us, and she loves everything related to fashion and beauty-style guides, shopping, makeup, museums, resale stores, all that. I don't love to shop, but am happy to include some in our trip. Any specific ideas for us in those two cities? [more inside]

Maternity Glam?

I have a niece who is skinny and very cool-looking in a glam, rock 'n roll way (for example, she was the David Bowie in an all-girl David Bowie tribute band). She loves to wear clothing from Patricia Field. Now she's pregnant. What brands of maternity clothes would keep up the hotness aspect as she grows larger? Stores in New York City and/or websites would work best for me.

Fashion and beauty blogs for the novice?

I am learning how to 'be' a girl, after years of hiding (literally) in badly-fitting guy clothing. Could you please help suggest web resources for the beauty/fashion aspect? Something like The Sartorialist would be nice, but with a critical eye and maybe a list of which stores have those pieces/products. (similarly/previously, but without the focus on online resources) [more inside]
