La La Anthony, who co-stars in "Unforgettable," loves to glam up and inspire.

Tickets to Eclipsed on Broadway: "If you see one play this year, make it Eclipsed! I went to see this back in November and Lupita Nyong'o seriously blew me away. It's one of those stories that really stays with you."



Deep Sleep Heavenly candle: "I'd definitely consider myself an insomniac. My mind is always running and so some nights I have a hard time getting to sleep. I love anything that calms my zone, and helps me relax."

"The Power Playbook": "Everything I've learned in the last 15 years about independence, money and success, I put into this book!! I wanted to share my advice with women and help people who might be going through similar situations I've been through."



La La's Court Eye Shadow palette from Motives: "The perfect gift for your girl friends, sisters and moms for Christmas. It's not your typical bronze, browns and shimmers, it's five amazing colors that were designed to be mixed and matched to make really gorgeous looks."


Customizable Knicks jersey: "I'll always rock my 07, but I love how you can customize a Knicks jersey with your own name! Such a cool way to support your team, and still keeping it personal. If your friend is a Knicks fan, this would be the perfect gift for them!"




5th and Mercer long sleeve dress: "I love long sleeve dresses in the winter. This one's great for holiday parties! Tight and a little sexy, but with long sleeves and at a midi length so you can still stay warm. I'd wear it with ankle boots and an amazing winter coat or faux fur."




Inspirational quote calendar: "I'm big on inspirational quotes and the power of positive thinking. It's important to give yourself a simple reminder each day to stay focused, driven, to remember what's important in life. These are great for your nightstand of your office desk."
