We feel like such savages rubbing smudgy finger prints off of our iPhones or iPads with our shirt sleeves. We're no more pulled together than the dad wiping his kid's nose with his shirttail. It's just so not on brand for us. Thankfully, Well-Kept Tech Wipes ($6) exist. Not only will they clean our screens, they're small enough to tuck into any purse or travel bag and even come in attractive packaging with pleasant scents. That's more like it.

It's a simple equation, really. More coffee = more productivity. Refills take up precious time, especially since we usually end up standing in the break room and catching up with a coworker or waiting for the cutie from down the hall. We hauled this 20oz Big Ass Mug ($15) to the office in the hopes that we will in fact, get more done.
If just thinking about 20 oz of coffee give you the jitters, there's also a normal sized cup.

There are myriad ways in which we do not want to be like Kim Kardashian, but we do have to admit that KK definitely knows how to take a selfie. Word on the street is that she uses one of these LuMee cases ($45) for an optimally-lit shot. Makes sense given that the flash is on the front of a phone and everyone knows you get a much better selfie if you can actually see what your photo will look like. Looks like it's one lonely check mark in the "similarities between us and a Kardashian" column.

Kale may be the veggie du jour, but that doesn't mean we need it in every single meal... or do we? Despite the misleading name, The I Hate Kale Cookbook ($12) is full of tasty kale recipes for pretty much every meal occasion. There's even a section on happy hour kale snacks titled Cocktail Kale - Snacks to Soak Up the Booze. Ok, maybe we could get behind having a little more of the cruciferous veg in our life if we pair it with a drink.

You may not have the vacation days or funds to go on a spring break trip this year, but we hope you can at least wiggle out of work for a weekend to soak up the sun somewhere-or-other. Wherever you go, we give our thumbs up to the Lipault 18" Weekend Satchel ($99). It's easy to clean and identify, but our favorite part is the framed opening which makes it incredibly easy to pack. Going somewhere more long-term? It makes a perfect companion for their wheleed luggage with a built in strap that keeps it in place.

Attention Amazons of the world! We bring you the holy grail of shoe - a dressy flat that's as sexy as a pair of heels but won't lead every event guest to ask you "wow, how tall are you?" It's as rare as a four leaf clover, but we stumbled across this Loeffler Randall Lita ($295) in a field of dowdy ballet flats and couldn't believe our good fortune. Embrace the neutral metallic color and wear it to every single summer wedding. Bonus: you won't be sinking into the gras like all the stiletto-wearing shorties.

If you're going to be a tiger in the sack, you might as well sleep in the jungle, right?

They say a balanced breakfast is important, so we don't know why we get the side-eye from our coworker every morning when we walk in with a venti americano and a donut. That's a great balance of carbs, sugar and caffeine! We've decided the only solution is to wear this Donut Judge Me Tee ($35) on casual Friday because we're certainly not ditching our a.m.

Three words: Champagne. Gummy. Bears. Do you really need to know anything else?
OK ok, fine. These Bubbly Bears ($8) don't pack the same booze content as a glass of the effervescent bevvie we love so well, but they definitely have the flavor of brut and rose champagne. Which really just means that we don't have to feel guilty eating them with our little cousins, right?

Having a good time at the beach, are you dearie? How's your tummy feeling with all that sucking in? And did you put enough SPF on your tatas to prevent burned boobies? What about that awkward wedgie you're trying to undo without anyone noticing?
Who's mocking our comfy cover up Kaftan ($92) now, hmmmm?

We were out to dinner the other night in the cool part of town and it seemed like every fifth woman who walked in was wearing an off-the-shoulder top. Apparently, these are coming back, and while we're not sure we're ready to embrace the return of this '90s look, we do know one thing: these tops are one big wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. May we suggest this Crochet Trim Cold Shoulder Top ($49), not just for its cute detail but also for those genius little straps which will keep our top securely on our body and even allow us to wear a bra that isn't strapless. Genius!

We'd like to think that our preference for Easter basket treats has matured a bit over the years. Sure, we'll still devour a sleeve of Peeps in the blink of an eye, and we're also grown adults talking about a basket full of candy from a giant bunny, but never mind all that. This year we're hoping the ol' E.B. brings us a more refined treat like this Easter Egg Extraordinaire ($75) from Vosges Haute Chocolate. It's filled with delicious delights like lemon raspberry caramels, clementine ginger toffee, hazelnut truffles and more.

Don't let the lingering snow fool you, festival season is right around the corner. We're constantly being reminded of this thanks to tons of cute boho chic clothes at our favorite stores and countless concert announcement e-mails in our inboxes. Seems like the ideal festival piece is a vest, and we're opting for the Keep Your Fringe Close Vest ($45). It doesn't scream summer, so it will work as a nice layering piece over jeans and a long sleeve tee just as well as it will with a bandeau top and cutoffs at Coachella.

Sure, this Pretty Things Inside Paper Tape ($7) would be great for wrapping presents or mailing cards or love letters, but we're considering just slapping it on our coat like a name tag. Too much?

Bikini, shmikini. We're embracing
our age a retro vibe and rocking this Nautical One Piece ($90) this summer. Picture us on the beach with an oversize hat, cat eye sunglasses and a bold red lip. Actually, just picture Taylor Swift's fabulous style and assume that's how we look.
