One of my favorite things from Oprah's Favorite Thing are these Claus Porto soaps from Lafco New York. I love the different colors and patterns on the wrappers - they'd be such a cute extra to a color-themed gift (as I often like to give). In addition to their too-cute-for-words packaging, the shea butter soaps come in 15 yummy scents like Red Poppy, Orange Amber, Lime Basil and Grapefruit Fig.
Both of these outfits from J. Crew are perfect examples of adding a dash of yellow. I don't know if I'd pair the first one with the sequin skirt, but I love the cobalt blue with the ruffly yellow blouse. The bold black and white graphics in the second outfit look great with the red pants and slim, bright yellow belt.
I love the yellow piping this soft and cozy grey sweater from the Gap. So much so that I bought it last week :)
This necklace from Forever 21 is nice for a subtle accent of yellow.
I am a big fan of bracelets and have numerous bangles similar to these from Forever 21, in all different colors. They're a super easy way to add some color when the rest of your outfit might be relatively understated.
What girl doesn't love shoes? I especially love colored shoes.
These Sam Edelman flats are fun and different. They'd be super cute with a pair of dark jeans and a white top.
Can you say h.o.t.?

A handbag is a great place to add some color. This linen and leather bag from Smythson of Bond Street can be both dressy and casual. Its also pretty pricey at $1,080, but gives a good idea of what's out there.
The Cool ribbon detail on this clutch from J. Crew is fab.
You also can't go wrong with an all yellow bag. I'm not a fan of being too matchy-matchy, so I definitely wouldn't carry these bags with yellow shoes or jewelry. I like to let one piece stand out on its own.

MICHAEL by Michael Kors shoulder bag
A scarf or pashmina is another idea. Both of the ones below are from J. Crew. I can't wait until it gets a little chillier so I can start wearing mine! And by chilly, I mean under 70 degrees - it is LA after all.
Guys don't have to be left out! I love unpredictable face on this Swiss ArmyAction Camp watch.
Here are some of my favorites from Egg Press
And also these from Elum Designs
Kodak SV-811 8-inch Digital Picture Frame shows a rotating slideshow of pictures - great for the office
This functional Key chain flask from J. Crew holds 1 fluid ounce. Perfect for a pick-me-up during a chilly football game.
Another booze-themed key chain (alcohol not included) is this one from Urban Outfitters. Its a bottle opener that looks like an old-fashioned key. I like it because its handy and isn't so obvious (or ugly) like other key chain bottle openers.
I love that this isn't just a boring old metal watch - it has some pizazz. I do love a splash of color! Victorinox Swiss Army® 'Dive Master' 500M Watch
These slippers look so cozy UGG Australia Scuff Romeo Slippers
These UGG Australia Ascot Slippers are nice because they have a sole suitable for outside.
I just love this outfit I saw online at In Style the other month. Its casual, but also chic. The dark trouser jeans are super cute and look great with the colored patent leather jacket. The jacket is fab because its not tacky or too bikery. The flats work well, but of course heels would dress it up a bit.
In the past I've stayed away from tinted moisturizers; mostly because I thought they didn't provide enough coverage and/or were too shiny. However, now I am a loyal user of (oil free) Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
