Leah Duncan Meadow Brass Cuff

The hills are alive with the sound of...okay, so maybe great accessorizing doesn't make a sound, but this Leah Duncan Meadow Brass Cuff ($195) certainly plays the right notes when it comes to impact.

Elie Tahari Nadja Faux-Fur Cape

We're not sure the Nadja Faux-Fur Cape ($97, on sale) will keep you toasty warm if you're going to wear it as a replacement for your coat, but we also doubt you'd be buying it for its warmth. You'd buy it because it's luxurious, lovely, and trimmed in faux fur.... [More]

It's something close to your body that you wear while you sweat. You stick it on your head even on greasy hair days... and you never, ever clean it. That's why the average pair of headphones is probably far grosser than you suspected. At last, there's a pair that won't... [More]


Zoya Naturel Collection Sampler

Naked: it's bold, it's daring... and sometime it's disastrous. Looking your best sans wardrobe works much better with a healthy dose of self-tanner and a good Photoshop filter.

When 10:00 PM Essence Mask

While the price tag on the When 10:00 PM Essence Mask ($28) is a bit high for a single-use product, it's still cheaper than hightailing it to your esthetician every time your skin has a freak-out. Keep one or two on hand to use at the end of those long... [More]

Boombox Lunchbox

The only thing that would make this Boombox Lunchbox ($13) even cooler is if it actually had a built-in cassette tape, so that we could blast our ancient collection of Def Leppard jams during that walk to work. Of course, that would mean there wouldn't be room for our B.L.T's... [More]

Calvin Klein Long Sleeve Belted Colorblock Sheath Dress

Miu Miu Two-Tone Sequined Shoulder Bag

We can't decide what our favorite thing is about the Miu Miu Two-Tone Sequined Shoulder Bag ($1,195): how shiny it is, the fact that we can brush our purse (so the sequins shine either pink or silver), or the added bonus of the Swarovski crystal strap that can be detached... [More]

Does your favorite coffee shop have a chair-to-table height ratio that's just ever so slightly off? If so, not all the baked goods and amazing lattes in the world will move you to bring your laptop there to try to get work done, because within fifteen minutes, your back is... [More]


Rae Dunn Small Fruit Colander

You know you should be washing your fruit before you eat it - after all, who knows what was sprayed on it when it was out in the field, from pesticides to pee. But it's easy to ignore the total grossness of that when faced with the extra effort needed... [More]


Chanel Éclat Lumiere Highlighter Face Pen

The Éclat Lumiere Highlighter Face Pen ($40) from Chanel is one of those beauty items that you didn't know you needed, use, and then can't quite figure out how you've lived without it. Drink the Kool-Aid with us and order one for yourself. It's a multi-purpose tool that helps you... [More]


Cutting Edge Stilettos

Every once in a while, even Forever 21 strikes fashion gold; these Cutting Edge Stilettos ($37) are their latest success. This cheap find looks like it came from the window of Bloomie's, not a yellow bargain bin at Forever 21.... [More]


Girl Talk Bobbi Set

We're choosing to think of the Girl Talk Bobbi Set ($15) from as an updated mood ring. Instead of using it to tell you how you're feeling, you can slip a bobbi pin into your hair to tell the world how you're feeling. We're anticipating that we'll get the... [More]

wedding SM.jpg

BCBGMAXAZRIA Morgane Embellished-Yoke Dress

BCBGMAXAZRIA's Morgane Embellished-Yoke Dress ($199, on sale) is the very best choice for that frenemy wedding we feel obligated to attend. It's a gorgeous dress - therefore we are likely to look better than the bride. And it's champagne, not white, so she can't complain about us trying to steal... [More]


Cheap Thrill: Ceramic Donut Coin Bank

We've been handing over our change to the corner bakery more often than we'd like to admit. Do you think tossing our spare coin into the Ceramic Donut Coin Bank ($7) will curb our breakfast treat spending? Not likely, but we're still going to order it with optimism! What's a... [More]


Flavored Popcorn Spice Sampler

Have you jumped onto the air-popped popcorn bandwagon, yet? We started making our own in an attempt to shed both the extra calories and the chemicals found in microwaveable brands. While our healthier bowls are tasty, they definitely need a little kick in the tush when it comes to flavor.... [More]

You'll feel like the cat's meow when you slip on the Schutz Slate Lace Up Booties ($220). These sun-kissed leather heels are the ultimate in sexy shoes, from their open toes all the way up to the tops of their lace-up closures.... [More]


ILIA Balmy Days Lip Balm

It doesn't matter if it tastes like grapefruit or Fruity Pebbles. If that ordinary lip balm you're carrying around doesn't keep your lips moist and conditioned, it needs to get kicked to the curb. This ILIA Balmy Days Lip Balm ($26) doesn't taste like candy, but it will help keep... [More]

Farm Animals Gift Wrap

If this Farm Animals Gift Wrap ($12) came in bigger rolls, we might consider papering our bathroom with it. That's how much we love the warm peach print with its sweet vintage style. Bunnies wearing necklaces! Donkeys with crocheted afghans on their backs! And that weird squirrel-fox thing with the... [More]


Nooka ZIRC Watch

Face it: nobody wears a watch to tell time anymore. We're looking for a funky piece of arm candy, and this Nooka ZIRC Watch ($320) fits the bill nicely. Its innovative "dial" gives it a slick, futuristic look sure to draw a few eyes.... [More]

Fatboy H2O Pool Bed

A bed is right. Once folded out, the Fatboy H2O Pool Bed ($169) is as big as a full-sized mattress. If the idea of sleeping on something smaller than a king, in any format, has you twitching, don't worry - one of the features of these luxury loungers is the... [More]


Whimsy Milieu Animal Rings

Turn your fingers into your own tiny zoo with these Animal Rings ($20). Just make sure to take them off before you try to wash your hands, or you might end up with a drippy, waterlogged piece of wood instead of an adorable, wearable penguin or octopus.... [More]


Tuck Aways Purse Organizer

You finally scored that delicious designer purse you've been lusting after...only to find that it's sadly deficient in the pocket department. Thankfully, sporting some Louis Vuitton doesn't have to mean spending twenty minutes fishing around for your car keys. This Tuck Aways Purse Organizer ($29) gives any bag interior a... [More]


Sauna Boy Portable Mini Humidifier

We could tell you how this portable humidifier improves the air you breathe, how quiet and out-of-the-way it is, and how convenient its USB power source is...but really, we think one look at the face of the Sauna Boy Portable Mini Humidifier ($28) is all the incentive you need to... [More]


Bruce Lee "Gung Fu Scratch"

He could rearrange your face, but did you know he could also rearrange dance tunes? The Bruce Lee "Gung Fu Scratch" tee ($32) "remixes" a photo of the Jeet Kune Do master into a record-scratching DJ. If you thought his footwork in a street fight was impressive, you should have... [More]



Being the designated driver is a pretty thankless job - unless you consider your pals managing to puke in a bag as opposed to on your leather interior thanks enough. And if you've been DD, you've probably figured out that you don't get charged for your Diet Coke. But now... [More]


Finders Keepers The Departed Dress

In the case of the Departed Dress ($210), the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and its parts are already pretty great. Pairing a pleated leopard print skirt with a sporty racerback sounds like a gamble (and that's even before the jeweled neckline and colorblocking), but the... [More]


BERG Little Printer

Still prefer to read your news on paper, even if you don't have a subscription? Refuse to be one of the dozens of figures hunched over their smartphones on the bus? Or simply like something new to read every morning in the bathroom after that first mug of coffee? The... [More]


Celine Shoe Clips

A little short on the cash you'd need for those Manolos or Louboutins? Just fake it! These Celine Shoe Clips ($20) give ordinary heels and flats an instant upgrade. They're a great way to make your Target clearance rack finds look like Prada.... [More]


ferm LIVING Mini Triangle Wall Sticker

We're glad ferm LIVING has thought of the minimalist home decorators. As cute as the designs are for those nature and bird wall stickers, the idea of having those stuck on the wall even semi-permanently...we could never go through with it. What we can imagine is these Mini Triangle Wall... [More]


Alfie Nine iPhone Case

Save your iPhone from the accumulation of unnecessary nicks and scratches obtained by being thrown in your purse day after day with all the other stuff you schlep around.

Do your kids like to remove and conceal accessories like drug runners hiding a heroin shipment? Try kitting them out with these Monster Mitts ($30). With their cute felt and button eyes and soft, toothy fringe, they're fun enough that your own little monsters might actually keep them on.... [More]


Classic Valentine Petit Fours

We're still recovering from the bender that is the holiday season too, but it's our duty to remind you that Valentine's Day is going to be here sooner than you'd like to acknowledge. If you want to kick up the color in this year's truffles, try these Classic Valentine Petit... [More]


Levi's Bobble Pointelle Sweater

We like the Levi's Bobble Pointelle Sweater ($40, on sale) for its deep forest green color, yes, but mostly because of its architectural darts and seams, reminiscent of that classic gothic style, and complete with severe arches, flying buttresses, and, of course, the telltale "bobbles" that adorned so many cathedrals... [More]


Detox Indulgent Soaking Salts

Busy and boozy weekend? We've had a few of those, too. If you need to restore a little balance to your body, draw a bath doctored up with a handful of Detox Indulgent Soaking Salts ($12) from Soapwalla. The organic salt and essential oil blend should help soften your skin,... [More]


Core Bamboo Round Entertainment Set

What will we keep in the adorable eggs of this Core Bamboo Round Entertainment Set ($50)? An assortment of sweets? Savory nibbles? Or maybe the full spectrum of over-the-counter painkillers? With the number of ailments you and your friends are complaining about, that last choice would probably get the most... [More]


Color Pop Large Notebook

The problem with beautiful goods that come in a rainbow of hues is that it's impossible to pick just one. They're almost always going to look better together than separately, right? Luckily, there's a way for you to choose between these Color Pop Notebooks ($15 each) if you find it... [More]


Victoria's Secret Mix and Match Bras

We love getting stuff for free. Free shipping at Victoria's Secret is great, sure; but getting a physical freebie can't be beat. You can get both this weekend - buy a bra and your order will ship free with coupon code SHIPBRA and you'll get a free pair of panties... [More]


Katharine Watson Block-Printed Heart Cards

Do you miss the taste of envelope glue? Long to get out your IRL address book? Or maybe you totally forgot to send out Christmas cards this year and are looking to make it up to your nagging mother-in-law. Why not send out Valentine's Day cards? Your recipients will be... [More]


Lilly Pulitzer Thompson Shift

From a distance, the Thompson Shift ($198) looks like any other resort dress, complete with lace trim and tassels and a bold, graphic floral print of some sort. Except then you zoom in and you realize that those generic flowers are actually zebras! Dang, those guys are good at camouflage.... [More]


Doubtblush: Nasty Gal Oil Slick Skirt

Okay, so yes, we love to shop, but don't think for a second that everything out there is worthy of our glorious rave reviews. Doubtblush is here to remind you that although we seem to gush over a lot, there are certain things out there that leave us scratching our... [More]


Fletcher Backpack in Dino

Dinosaurs! They just never stop being cool, and not just because of all those hilarious T-Rex tiny arms jokes. We loved sporting prehistoric-print gear when we were kids, and this Fletcher Backpack in Dino ($29) makes the theme hip again for us grown-ups.... [More]


Set Sail Napkin Holder

"Gather round, dinner guests! Tonight we set sail for the land of ribs! It won't always be smooth sailing, and you'll definitely need somewhere to wipe your hands (or your brow), so please take hold of our makeshift sails (as many as you need), and enjoy your journey!" Set Sail... [More]


Cree Ring

Pick your power crystal (or gem) - be it amethyst, lapis lazuli, moonstone, or chrysoprase - and keep it close to you throughout the day. The eighteen-karat gold vermeil band on the Cree Ring ($175) isn't too shabby either, and serves as a fitting accent to keep your power source... [More]


Herbivore Botanicals Lip Butters

It's good to have options, especially when it comes to lip balm flavors, and while we could point you in the direction of our personal favorite, we're instead going to highlight the fact that Herbivore Botanicals sells a trio of lip butters ($28). You can indulge in rose, mint, and... [More]



These Babushkups ($24) won't demand to know when you're going to get around to finding a husband or cranking out some great-grandchildren for them like a real granny might, but they will save you precious cabinet space.... [More]


Striped Floral Print Short with Pom Pom

Are these Striped Floral Print Shorts with Pom Poms ($12) a little silly? Probably, but so are many of our favorite things, like carnivals, pugs, and Nathan Fillion. We're sure these inimitable hot pants will quickly win their way to our hearts as well.... [More]


Jumbo Papel Picado

There's no denying that DIY is the preferred trend for weddings these days. But you've got shit to do - you don't have time to fold cranes and emboss place cards when you're busy with a nine-to-five job and restraining yourself from putting your future mother-in-law in a camel clutch.... [More]


VS Sport Cami Sport Bra

We're almost through January - if you've still kept with your exercise plans for the new year, treat yourself to something from Victoria's Secret! Their sport line will give you just a little more motivation to get up and out to the gym. We like their Cami Sport Bra (2... [More]


unHoly unBasket

What's tastier than sacrilege!? The unHoly unBasket ($49) is a collection of the best religious parody items, including a bouncy Dashboard Jesus, a finger puppet of the Hindu god Shiva, and a dreidel with Santa on it. Whether you're in the market for a new religion or just window shopping,... [More]


Jose Eber Infrared Hair Dryer

It's the age-old dilemma. Style your hair, and you fry it. Let it air-dry, and you end up looking like you're having one of those "sweatpants days". This Jose Eber Infrared Hair Dryer ($149) is a sane compromise. Far infrared light sends heat deep into your hair, drying it faster... [More]


Schutz Fiza Fringe Sandals

We have a challenge for you: try to stand still when you're wearing these Schutz Fiza Fringe Sandals ($240). Do not skip, dance, or twist to see what that fringe does. We think it might be impossible, and that's okay. Just try not to run into any walls when you're... [More]


Intelligent Nutrients Uneasy Feeling Remedy

Man, can we ever use this Intelligent Nutrients Uneasy Feeling Remedy ($36). We feel uneasy all the freaking time - when we attempt to bake a loaf of bread from scratch, try to clip the claws on our cat, or wake up and remember who we were texting after we... [More]


Ladybug Print Dress

For those of you who, as children, could think of no activity that would make you happier than running outside to play in the dirt, find bugs, and create little bug kingdoms in the mud with sticks and leaves, this Ladybug Print Dress ($33) is calling your name. The bright... [More]


Toyno Donko

Don't stack your magazines and books on the floor - load 'em up on the friendly Donko ($54), your portable new best friend. Donko is made with strong, reinforced double cardboard (and a noble and loyal heart) and will help you keep the things you need close at hand wherever... [More]


Fresh Mint Natural Hand Soap

From decades of teeth brushing, we're all pretty hard-wired to think that minty fresh equals clean. It doesn't always hold true, of course, but the Fresh Mint Natural Hand Soap ($20) from Field Aesthetic delivers on both a crisp scent and a squeaky clean feeling. We're not just covering our... [More]


Fizzini Hand-Held Carbonated Soda Maker

Is your fridge full of torments? You open the door and think of how easy it would be to grab that can of Coke or glass of wine. Goodbye thirst, hello new pants size. This Fizzini Hand-Held Carbonated Soda Maker ($60) might just save you. It makes creating a bottle... [More]

Even if you don't have a Valentine this year, Victoria's Secret is looking to give you a little love. Sign up for their Angel Card and you'll get $15 off your next order of sweet or sultry underwear like this Candy Hearts Push-Up Bra ($50 for 2).... [More]


PINK Cheekster Panty

Some people think the only way around a visible panty line is a butt-baring thong, but we find wide, lace band panties like the PINK Cheekster Panty ($10) give us that smooth behind with just a touch more coverage. Right now you can mix and match 'em; twenty-six bucks will... [More]


Victoria's Secret Lacie Bralette

We're already seeing loose, open-sleeved tanks again for spring, but we're not much for showing our underwire or our underboob. To the rescue? A cute Lacie Bralette ($30) looks sweet - not saucy - when you let it peek out. And they're $49.50 for two right now at Victoria's Secret... [More]


best sunday dress Top with Chest Strip

And now for something a little different. This white top ($25) by Portugal's best sunday dress is certainly minimal, but it's not your everyday white tank, due to the futuristic padded and gridded bandeau running along the chest. This little bit of visual interest will make it look great underneath... [More]


Kate Spade Saturday Drawstring Pouch Bag

Let this unique drawstring pouch ($95) take you into spring. Obviously it's made by the team at Kate Spade Saturday - who else would think of making such an adorable bag in this beautiful smoky lavender color? Plus, no detail is overlooked; the inside is lined with a great star... [More]


Bright Life Blouse

Wait, what, we're going to encourage you to wear bell sleeves? We would've reacted that way as well to a description of the Bright Life Blouse ($46), but only before seeing the visual. Despite our strong conviction that voluminous sleeves belong only on fancy dressing gowns and costumes at Medieval... [More]



We're not going to say that this fun app, CHIC-Finder (free), promotes your covert operation to snap a photo of your coworker's to-die-for snakeskin heels so you can find a similar pair for yourself, but it does help you reach your goal faster. Once you've uploaded the photo to the... [More]


Rotoluxe Vazon Magnum Round Planter

Haven't you always wanted a container for your beloved plants that would glow softly at the flick of a switch? It wasn't on our list of must-haves either, especially since we didn't know such an invention existed, until we laid our eyes on the Rotoluxe Vazon Magnum Round Planter ($170).... [More]


Wasabi Earrings

You've seen them if you've been near any body of water or hiked a trail without an obvious path - they're cairns, rocks stacked up and balanced by visitors leaving their temporary marks on the landscape or by trail makers helping people find their way. These Wasabi Earrings ($34) are... [More]


Carta d'Armenia

That Poo-Pourri not quite cutting the mustard when it comes to hiding less-than-savory odors? Help it out with a truly time-tested solution. These Carta d'Armenia ($28) incense papers have been covering up unwholesome stenches since the sixteenth century. Just fold, light, and set on a glass or ceramic surface.... [More]


GANT The Manhattan Dress

There's no doubt as to why GANT named this the Manhattan Dress ($288, on sale). The rust contrast panels on the front of the dress are clearly a nod to the iconic silhouette of the Empire State Building, but not so detailed that people will notice you're wearing a dress... [More]


Breville Juice Fountain Crush

You've made the plunge. You're going to give up that filthy morning breakfast sandwich in favor of a low-calorie blend of health-boosting juice. That's a depressing enough scenario as it is, but gets even worse if you figure your juicer is only getting you a fraction of all that fruit... [More]


Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairspray

It's not in the budget to visit drybar every time we want to rock a blowout. Hoarding all of their fabulous products, however, may help us achieve similar results at home. Once we perfect the look we want, the Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairspray ($25) will set it, but not... [More]


Valentine's Heart Cake Stand

Planning on putting on the apron and making a batch of Valentine's cupcakes? Or maybe you've got your eye on that elaborate cake at your local indie bakery. You can put whatever you want on this Valentine's Heart Cake Stand ($20), just remember: it's a holiday, not a competition. Whoever... [More]


Mine Passport Case

While the statement on Jonathan Adler Mine Passport Case ($38) is open to interpretation, the travel docs inside will confirm you as the rightful owner. Have fun in Paris/Antwerp/Bali and send us a postcard! Actually, scratch that last part. It'll just make us feel even more jealous of your globe-trotting... [More]


Doubtblush: Ego and Greed Victory Studs Platforms

Okay, so yes, we love to shop, but don't think for a second that everything out there is worthy of our glorious rave reviews. Doubtblush is here to remind you that although we seem to gush over a lot, there are certain things out there that leave us scratching our... [More]


Pijama iPad Case

Admit it: it's basically your best friend. So don't you think your tablet deserves something more comfortable to slip into when it's done with a long, hard day of helping you battle zombies and catch up on inane status posts? Treat it right and pick up this cozy Pijama iPad... [More]


Backyard BBQ Popcorn Sampler

Just because the season's not quite right for that kickoff BBQ, it doesn't mean that you can't have the sweet summer flavors in your house right now. Inspired by our favorite fair-weather tradition, the Backyard BBQ Popcorn Sampler ($35) offers gourmet popcorn in nine right-off-the-grill flavors: Honey Mustard, Bacon Cheddar,... [More]


Clinique City Block Sheer Face Protector SPF 25

Ah, city living. A world where designer shoes are available around every corner, where we can choose a different restaurant to eat at every night, and where parking spaces cost more than our annual income. But our wallets aren't the only things assaulted by urban life. Our skin also takes... [More]


Anna Viktorsson New York Small Tray

Tchotchkes with little tiny cartoon images of things and places, like this New York Small Tray ($32), are definitely one of our weaknesses. We think city dwellers will love repping New York with this tray, but we also suggest that tourists to The Big Apple hold off on picking up... [More]


Heart Pinky Ring

First your niece will make you promise that you will put the picture she drew of you on Facebook. Then she'll make you handshake, then pinky swear, then cross your heart. Combine steps three and four with the Heart Pinky Ring ($40), which will let you perform both actions at... [More]


American Apparel Velvet Twist Scarf

Banish bad hair days by gathering up your locks in the American Apparel Velvet Twist Scarf ($14). The bendable band will fold exactly how you want it to, giving you a platform on which you can create endless styles, from braided updos to faux bobs to backswept bangs. We like... [More]


Feather + Heart Sequins Hairband

We're pretty sure this Feather + Heart Sequins Hairband ($40) is designed for the tiny heads of small children, but we'd be tempted to find a way to extend the reach of this glittery, glam accessory. Either that or put up with a serious headache. It wouldn't be the first... [More]


Thunder Missile Launcher

It's a war out there. A war to preserve your precious supply of K-Cups. Fight back against coffee attrition by guarding your supply with the strategic placement of this Thunder Missile Launcher ($35), powered by your computer's USB port. Getting pinged in the eye by a foam dart while reaching... [More]


Guerlain Liquid Eyeliner

Guerlain's limited edition Liquid Eyeliner ($37) has us conflicted. On one hand, we don't trust, well, our hands, to be steady enough to draw on our liner without making a total mess. On the other hand, this liquid liner has a long, thin applicator that's being hailed by customers and... [More]


The Myth Zippered Clutch

We're digging the trippy fox-head print of The Myth Zippered Clutch ($26), but it does have us pondering, which myth? Maybe it's the fairy tale that we'll actually remember to stock this cute pouch with everything we need for a night out. Lipstick? Check. Wallet? Whoops.... [More]


Ghost Rose Solid Perfume

With season 4 of Downton Abbey in full swing, and the return of Sherlock brightening our lives, we're in heaven (if heaven is a place made for people who obsess over British dramas). So much so that we bought this Catbird Home & Lounge Exclusive Ghost Rose Solid Perfume ($34)... [More]


Outline Vase

Your flower arrangements just got postmodern. This Outline Vase ($50) is a vase shaped like the open outline...of a vase. It's a meta-vase. Stick a bud in it and let your mind be blown.... [More]


Ozeri Fresko Salt & Pepper Mill and Grinder

Salt and pepper...must they always be separated? All either of them wants to do is make your food taste delicious; why can't they put their differences aside? Hopefully being placed a little closer together in the Ozeri Fresko Salt & Pepper Mill and Grinder ($25) will help these granulated seasonings... [More]


Løv is Pure Tea

Yes, it's often messy, depressing, excruciating and potentially bankrupting - but as the makers of this Løv is Pure Tea ($15) remind us, it can also be something pretty special. I mean, just think about how you feel about that new pair of Manolos. We'll bet this blend of green... [More]


Victoria's Secret Mint Aztec Duvet Cover

Did you know that Victoria's Secret has bedding? We didn't either until today, but it's a welcome discovery. This Mint Aztec Duvet Cover ($79-99) may not actually make spring come quicker, but its cheery color scheme will help drag us out of our winter blues.... [More]


Sweet Heat Salted Caramel Corn

When you go to place an order for some Sweet Heat Salted Caramel Corn ($5) from Sauce Goddess, don't fool yourself into thinking just one bag will be sufficient. It won't be, and when you reach the bottom of the bag, you'll curse yourself for not buying more. We speak... [More]


La Boîte Bloody Mary Spice Master Collection

We all know there are countless ways to take your Bloody, but the intense flavors in this La Boîte Bloody Mary Spice Master Collection ($45) go far beyond the question of pickles or celery.

Body by Victoria Seamless Little Lace Thong Panty

Spring cleaning is just around the corner, and take our advice - it's time to clean out that panty drawer! We don't need to tell you that replacing them is fun - get 'er done at Victoria's Secret where you can get four pairs for $28. So please, let go... [More]


Personal Shopper: Sparkly Winged Earrings for Caroline

Caroline writes: "I am completely in love with Ana Khouri's wing ear cuffs but can't seem to find anything comparable within my price range, as I don't exactly have a semester of college's money to spend on earrings. Have you come across anything similar? Thank you!" Thanks, Caroline. I'm now... [More]


Mon Cuir Eau de Parfum

Not your run-of-the-mill department store fragrance, Ramon Monegal's Mon Cuir Eau de Parfum ($185) boasts a pretty unique scent. It's a combination of Russian leather (yeah, we have no idea if Russian leather smells differently from any other kind of leather), orange flower, nutmeg, Indonesian patchouli, and Australian sandalwood among... [More]


Areaware Sphere Bottle Opener

This Areaware Sphere Bottle Opener ($18) boasts an easy-grip, ergonomic design. Though if you're opening enough beers to risk carpal tunnel, it's probably time for an intervention.... [More]


Le Creuset Revolution Saute Spoon

Is it a spoon, or a spatula? Prepare yourselves, ladies: this Le Creuset Revolution Saute Spoon ($15) is both. With one sturdy tool you can stir, scoop, scrape, stab, and separate, and all without scratching your pans. Think of it as the Holy Grail of kitchen implements.... [More]


Not a Knot Conditioner

Not to sound like total wimps, but combing through tangled, wet hair sucks, even if you're an adult, which is why we sneak-use the Not a Knot Conditioner ($16) from Kidscounter (Beautycounter's kids-friendly line). It smells like a creamsicle, moisturizes just as well as our pricey salon-brand conditioners, and leaves... [More]


Victoria's Secret Party Dots Demi Bra

You have to be buttoned-up and boring at work, but that doesn't mean your underwear has to be! Head over to the Semi-Annual Sale at Victoria's Secret before it ends to pick up panties with some pizzazz or a bra with some.. brizzazz. We're going with it. We like the... [More]

If you can't stay at home and play hermit, fight those inevitable colds with this Under the Weather Organic Tea Remedy Pack ($25). It contains an assortment... [More]


Gas Pump Liquor Dispenser

We've found a much more fun way to measure our booze intake. Forget boring old shot glasses: this Gas Pump Liquor Dispenser ($27) has a built-in millimeter scale, so you can see just how much you're pouring into you glass. Just be warned: this gadget is such a hoot to... [More]


Virginia Johnson Sumo Intarsia Sweater

We feel a bit like the chubby duo on this Virginia Johnson Sumo Intarsia Sweater ($138) are judging us. Then again, maybe after all that holiday weight we've gained, they're sizing us up as potential competition.... [More]


Great Outdoors Button Set

Life outside is great. There are trees, furry little animals, mountains, beer tents (that's what that orange thing is, right?)... the list is endless. If you're also a fan of life under the big blue sky, show it off by adding flair to your wardrobe with this Great Outdoors Button... [More]


Frostbeard Studio Book Lover's Candles

The creators of Frostbeard Studio clearly share our taste in entertainment. Forget Tale of Two Cities: the works they've drawn upon to create their Book Lover's Candles ($15) are a regular pantheon of high geekerie, from Harry Potter to Princess Bride and Lord of the Rings. They even cheat a... [More]


Voyeur Mini Larger Than Life Eyeliner Coffret

Technically, this awesome Voyeur Mini Larger Than Life Eyeliner Coffret ($49) from NARS is supposed to be a gift set. But the holidays are over, so we can go back to indulging ourselves in little gifts, right? And while NARS makes a killer eyeliner, we're really in this for the... [More]


Dick Taylor Chocolate Gift Set

Just what we needed - more rich, delicious hand-crafted chocolate bars to throw on top of everything we gobbled up over the holidays. Actually, that is exactly what we needed. Dick Taylor Chocolate Gift Set ($27)... [More]


LiveRider Cycling Computer

How do you measure the success of your bike ride? If it's enough for you that you made it back from the store with eggs, milk, and/or six-pack intact, then this LiveRider Cycling Computer ($79) probably isn't for you. But for those who like to rack up miles and push... [More]


Dazzle Dry Quick Dry Top Coat

This Dazzle Dry Quick Dry Top Coat ($13) is seriously a miracle in a bottle. We've tried other quick-drying top coats before, but they've never quite lived up to their promise. Either our nails end up smudged and messy, or the stuff chips off within a day or two. And... [More]

Banana Republic Scalloped Parisian Jacket

We're wearing Banana Republic's Scalloped Parisian Jacket ($130) while drinking wine, eating cheese, and online shopping with Midnight in Paris playing in the background. The right outfit can make any night of the week seem romantic.... [More]

Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence

Essence of rose, orange blossom and lavender sounds much nicer than the unpronounceable chemicals derived from god-only-knows-what that we've been using to preserve our youthful looks.

J.Crew Collection Rhinestone-Encrusted Sash
