The Here To There Short ($54) from lululemon's new &go collection is designed to be partied in. And while this is fantastic in theory, we're not quite sure we'd rock these at happy hour. In fact, we wouldn't. Don't get us wrong, we do like these shorts, we'd just stick to wearing them for pre- and/or post-workout activities not involving a dance floor. Such as grabbing a smoothie. Walking the dog. Returning that overdue library book. You get the idea.
We swear, we do try to keep our electronics clean, but it's a vicious cycle. They're either smudgy or covered in dust particles (most of the time it's both). The Original Screen Cleaner 2GO kit ($14) promises to solve our problems. The organic spray leaves behind clean, streak-free screens and the included microfiber cloth picks up dust and debris. It makes us want to clean all the things. (No, seriously, bring us your phones and tablets and we'll clean 'em for you because it's kind of addictive!)

Or, your adorably geeky boyfriend who secretly loves Harry Potter.

Carlota here: I'm a true girly-girl. I love strapless dresses, skinny jeans, basic ribbed tanks, lace intimates, patent peep-toes, jeweled sandals, buttery-soft leather satchels, sparkly pendants....you get the point! I also love to save cash when I can, so consider me your personal concierge when you're looking for luxury-for-less. I also have a crazy husband, two little munchkins (Carlo and Milly) and a furry yellow Lab. All of them are sweet and lovable, but they certainly do occupy a good portion of my day. However,l I do L-O-V-E shopping with a passion and finding amazing deals for myself as well as for others.
We think that calling this a "statement necklace" is an understatement. Calling it a "necklace likely to be part of the ceremonial garb of a techno high priestess of a galaxy far far away" may be more accurate, but we suppose that's a bit of a mouthful.
You may have a lot of dishes in your china collection, but even you probably don't have petri dishes on the shelves. The Dirty Dish Collection ($325) showcases designs depicting some pretty gross things, including HIV, anthrax, E. coli, SARS, and cholera. Despite the grotesque graphics, you can actually eat off these plates...provided you've washed them recently.
Chalk paint is so last year. Okay, actually, it's still super popular and still super fun to transform part of your home into a scribble surface, but it's time-consuming and messy. These Chalkboard Frames Wall Decals ($18) from Nouvelles Images are the best of both worlds. You get to avoid the hassle or priming and painting while still dedicating a few feet of your walls to the chalk cause. The hardest part? Deciding on which color chalk you should use when writing your sweetie a have-a-nice-day note before you leave for work.

How are you going to continue the denim-on-denim you've lived in all winter long when it's too hot to wear jeans and long-sleeve chambray tops in summer? First switch to a sleeveless chambray, and then transition out of jeans to this light and airy Button Up Long Denim Skirt ($94). Problem solved.
Though you admire a man with a mustache, it's understandable that you don't want one on your own face. A mustache is so close to your mouth that you're bound to get snack food stuck in it. There's only one exception when that wouldn't look ridiculous: Ceramic Mustache Serving Trays ($39). Your guests will love plucking food straight out of this facial hair. If you want to get really meta, use these trays to serve Pringles.

On a packing list for a summer vacation we see white lacy shorts and raise you a pair of white polyester lacy shorts. No? Well, at least the Shore Thing Crochet Shorts ($25) look the part. Maybe these are best left to the spring season before temperatures rise above the eighty-degree mark.
