Bluff City Light

Why does "industrial chic" have to mean boring old black-on-stainless-steel? We think a clean, modern design aesthetic should rock some color every once in a while. Take this Bluff City Light ($550), for example. With its caged metal design, it'll look sharp over our reclaimed kitchen island, but its bold... [More]

dear-hancock-desk-collection-stationary-small.jpg

Dear Hancock Desk Collection Vol. 1

None of the desks so playfully portrayed on the Dear Hancock Desk Collection stationery ($16) remotely resemble our own workspaces.

The cheeky Bad Breakup Whipped! Body Creme ($11) by Villianess smells like, and we quote, "...heartbreak.

But don't worry, it may smell like sweet depression,... [More]

Urban Decay Ammo Palette

When a favorite item comes back into production, we tend to go a little crazy. So understandably, once we saw that the Urban Decay Ammo Palette ($34) was on the so-to-speak shelves once again, we did our bank account a disservice by snagging up more than one. Okay, maybe five.... [More]

gotham-city-pendant-sm.jpg

Gotham Skyline Pendant

We're not sure if the best thing about the Gotham Skyline Pendant ($50-60, sold in two pieces) by GothamSmith is the tiny zeppelin in the sky or the fact that it has two parts. It's got geek-girl BFF necklace written all over it, and we're in love.... [More]

memoring-s.jpg

Memoring

Tying a string around your finger to help you remember to do something is not nearly as helpful as an actual to-do list that states said thing you're trying to remember. But since to-do lists don't wrap nicely around your finger without a paper cut or two, the Memoring ($28)... [More]

snackle-mouth-sm.jpg

Snackle Mouth Granola Nut Clusters

While the packaging on for the Snackle Mouth Granola Nut Clusters ($4) is off-putting (okay, slightly terrifying), the maple-bacon-flavored treats inside are well worth the initial awkwardness of ripping open the pig-nosed tiki man box.
