Hulger Plumen 001 Light Bulb

CFL light bulbs may be eco-friendly (as opposed to incandescent, whoops, thanks for pointing that out, commenter Pam!), but they're kinda aesthetically, erm, lacking.

greatest-generation-sml.jpg

Questionable Content Greatest Generation Shirt

Everybody has an opinion about which decade was the best to be a kid, which SNL cast sucked the hardest, the appropriateness of texting, which James Bond was the hottest. But we think readers young and old can agree with the sentiment of the Greatest Generation shirt ($19): dinosaurs >... [More]

super-lux-necklace-sml.jpg

Josefina de Alba Super Lux Necklace

We like how the graphic, beaded patterns on the Josefina de Alba: Super Lux Necklace ($47) manage to look like gentle feathers. We're not sure how we feel about the fact that now we have "Super Bass"* stuck in our heads, but instead it goes "Boom badoom boom, boom badoom... [More]

heartland-classic-range-sml.jpg

Heartland Appliances Classic Gas Range

Like your neighbor that turns his nose up at your mountain bike with you know, actual gears, the Heartland Appliances Classic 48" Gas Range ($7,140) scoffs at the Big Chill appliances. ''1950s? Psh, I was designed after a Victorian model.''... [More]

Benefit 10

"To bronze or not to bronze; that is the question." Or is it "To blush or not to blush"? Benefit 10 ($28), a bronzer + blush duo solves life's biggest questions within the confines of one box. Though it comes with the flat brush, if you want to blend the... [More]

rainbow-sapphire-sml.jpg

BKK Gemstones 14K Rainbow Sapphire Half Eternity Band

Speaking of being needlessly contrary when it comes to jewelry, some of us married Outblushers were pretty bored with the world of wedding bands. Let us tell you, there's not a lot of middle ground between totally huge and gaudy and plain and simple if you didn't buy a wedding... [More]

Too Faced Lip Injection

First, go watch this. Now, read this post about Too Faced Lip Injection ($19) by substituting the lyrics of the song with the words of this post. Pump up your lips, Pump them up while your face is still young. And your lips need plumping, Look ahead, fresh Man Meat... [More]

word card-s.jpg

Cheap Thrill: Seraph Woodword Offset Card

When a high five just doesn't suffice (or is impossible), try the Seraph Woodword Offset card ($4). It says the whole sentence ("Word, what you did was sicker than sick."), and the handmade-ness has as much impact as our wild gestures. Nice.... [More]

Heavy sweaters need not apply, LaVanila Healthy Deodorant ($18) is good for sitting in the office or a day of indoor shopping.

czech-midcentury-credenza-sml.jpg

Prague Kolektiv Czech Mid-Century Credenza Sideboard

Oh dear. This vintage Czechoslovakian mid-century credenza ($3,750) makes us weak in the knees with its classic, mod shape and way-ahead-of-its-time contemporary stripe detail. But $3,750 is way out of our Ikea-sized budget; with that much money we could buy 46 BILLY bookcases!... [More]

embroidered-overlayer-dress-s.jpg

eShakti Embroidered Tulle Overlayer Dress

The best thing about a day to evening dress like this Embroidered Tulle Overlayer Dress ($70) is that now, we get to buy two sets of fabulous accessories to complete our looks. We're thinking some shmancy Tory Burch flats, a cardigan and a strand of pearls for the office, and... [More]

too-faced-candlelight-small.jpg

Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Candlelight Powder

That scene in "The Lady and the Tramp" has forever shaped how we conduct our first dates (and yes, we conduct them). Lady just looked so lovely by candlelight slurping down spaghetti like an Italian mouth-master (how else do you think she landed that Tramp?) Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Candlelight... [More]

volcano-cards-s.jpg

Volcano Cards

Though they're pretty quirky, we think we'd actually get a lot of use out of this set of forty Volcano Cards ($52) by artist Marie Delafon. An erupting volcano could work in a lot of situations. Here's what we're planning on writing on the inside for a few occasions: Happy... [More]

clemence-necklace-sml.jpg

Jennifer Loiselle Clemence Necklace in Pink

Statement necklaces are great, but what's even better are statement necklaces that offer more than one statement.

Crocs Adrina Flat

Color us impressed; Crocs have managed to make a totally adorable adult shoe with the Crocs Adrina Flat ($40). They come in a nice spread of colors, but we'll take the ultraviolet/berry combo so we can rep Outblush even when we're away from our computers.... [More]

Cedar Rapids

We saw Cedar Rapids ($29) when it was in theaters... And we were the only ones there. Literally. Seriously, how did more people not know about this bleeping hilarious movie?

Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat

We have this small love-hate relationship with our long nails. We adore having the length, being able to scratch an itch and more real estate to paint. But we ABHOR seeing dirt under our nails during our Naked Nail Days which causes us to run a file under the nail... [More]

Personal Shopper: Nude but Not Naked Bridemaid's for Rhea

Rhea writes: I picked my wedding dress, Melissa Sweet Wallis, in about 15 minutes and thought this wedding thing is going to be a breeze. Until I went shopping with my bridesmaids, what a nightmare. I hated everything they tried on, and wasn't about to make my friends drop $200... [More]

rock soap-s.jpg

Rock Soap on a Rope

Whoa nelly, the Rock Soap on a Rope ($9) is waaaay too nice to ever be issued to inmates (those poor jailbirds). All natural herbs and spices* are swirled into beautiful patterns (trippy, dude). Leave the steam feeling like you're fresh out of the farmers market. A perfect precursor to... [More]

Jersey Girls: The Fierce and the Fabulous

Believe it or not, there were Jersey Girls before Snooki. And believe it or not, we found the photos, stories, and bios in Jersey Girls: The Fierce and the Fabulous ($14) quite entertaining. Possibly because we didn't have to actually hear any of them speak. (We kid, we kid, you... [More]

haushka-eye-balm-small.jpg

Dr. Hauschka Eye Contour Day Balm

Do you suffer from cakey eye makeup towards the middle of the day? We can all thank low oil production near the eye for that one. Skin gets dry and starts to leech in makeup causing it to look wet cardboard right in the center of your face. Dr. Hauschka... [More]

pet-shakers-s.jpg

Pet Salt & Pepper Shaker

We're actually thinking that these Pet Salt & Pepper Shakers ($42) are a terrible idea because we'd end up snorting wine out of noses every time we tried to season our meal. No lie, it was kind of a challenge to even type these words we were laughing so hard.... [More]

stress ball-s.jpg

H.Concept Caomaru 4 Face Stress Ball

The animated H.Concept Caomaru 4 Face Stress Ball ($48) morphs into four distinct expressions depending on how we squeeze it. Its design is almost interactive the way it squishes and squashes. So entertaining, we'll forget why we were upset in the first place.... [More]

Keha3 Buoy Lamps

Look at these delightful indoor-outdoor lamps! Keha3 Buoy Lamps ($453) may be a bit pricey for one lamp (this price includes the net; without the net, they are $312), but they looks like they are having more than we ever have at a backyard BBQ. Like little bunnies. Or leaping... [More]

Rocky Desk Butler

Not all desk organizers are created equal. Some look like blocky little dogs and are much much cuter than that old Disney coffee mug you're currently using.

Bliss Bikini Perfect Deluxe Trimmer - Spa Edition

That whitening strip commercial that features some loose ladies road tripping to Vegas for an impromptu romp has us calling BS.

Marley B. Parker Egyptian Ring

the-better-man-small.jpg

The Better Man Wall Canvas

The Better Man ($45) instantly struck a chord (or four) within our souls immediately upon seeing him. There's something about his piercing eyes, chiseled jaw line and devilish demeanor that reminds us of someone. We just can't put our finger on it. Oh, we got it: he's the guy we... [More]

ophelia-laptop-cover-small.jpg

Ophelia Laptop Skin

We've decided that our attitudes need a facelift. We need to be ballsier. Brassier. Brazen-er. Ophelia ($30) knows what we're talking about. Her shoulder pads are fleet ships, for bitches sake. Charmaine Olivia, her creator, must have looked directly into our souls to create this broad, gap-toothed, tattooed cherry bomb.... [More]

draper-console-s.jpg

Draper Media Console

Truth: we saw this picture and really just wanted to find that puppy statue. Once we realized that wasn't actually the object for sale, we realized that this Draper Media Console ($249) is pretty fantastic. It'll work to hold your turntable and records as shown (cough::hipster::cough), but we also think... [More]

tie-waist-shirt-sm.jpg

D&G Gingham Tie Waist Shirt

There's something small town vintage about this D&G Gingham Tie Waist Shirt ($134). Maybe it's because we've seen so many movies of pretty, innocent girls prancing around in cigarette pants and cropped shirts. Regardless, we know we wouldn't mind adopting the look and modernizing it a little. We think we'll... [More]

mommys-kisses-small.jpg

Mommy Makeup Mommy Kisses

We don't use lip liner on a regular basis but when we want to, we can never find it. It is either under the bottom portion of our bag that keeps the bag flat, in a pocket we never knew existed or magnetically attached to an inner buckle somehow. Mommy... [More]

Q-Man Luggage ID Tag by NuOp

Kevyn Aucoin Expert Lip Tint - True Red ($23) reminds us of our hairstylist in college. She called herself a very descriptive, yet totally original name. In reality, where the rest of us lived while she was so clearly based in la-la-land, her name was Kevyn. Guess her parents were... [More]

Betsey Johnson Gingham Fish Drop Earrings

At first, we found these Betsey Johnson Gingham Fish Drop Earrings ($40) to a be a little...much...for us. You know, a little gaudy over the top. But on second look, we kind of like them. They're different enough that we're sure no one we know will have a similar pair,... [More]
