Does This Make Us Look Cheap? February 28, 2014

Today marks the end of National Cherry Month. We may be a little late to the game, but we don't mind a little last-minute celebration if it involves chowing down. Or smelling fruity. Or apparel that sits delicately on the borderline of "way too juvenile" and "super cute". Bettie Page... [More]

Girls' Ostrich Tile Mini Dress

When we look back on our childhood wardrobes, the "best of" highlights are usually remembered as "that skirt with the green ruffles" or "that shirt with the dinosaur" or "that dress with the neon giraffes".

Magnetic Measuring Cups

We'll confess that our measuring cups are sorta half-nested, sorta just thrown into a drawer somewhere (we lost our 1/8th cup about three months ago), which means it's probably time to look for something new. The MoMA Store is selling these Magnetic Measuring Cups ($15). Not only do the handles... [More]


Splendid California Poppies Maxi Dress

Splendid is the name of the brand, but we feel it could be a descriptor for both California poppies (love those flowers) and this California Poppies Maxi Dress ($158). It's as simple a dress as a dress can be, but add a few significant details, like the delicate print and... [More]

Wrap Around Baby Fox Ring

Be warned: Viewing this ring may cause involuntary fits of high-pitched squealing, accompanied by clapping, stamping or jumping up and down really, really fast. It's no joke.

nerd xx Perfume

It sounds gimmicky, and it kinda is, but we're actually pretty besotted with our bottles of nerd xx Perfume ($31). If you're the type to wrinkle your nose in annoyance as you pass Macy's perfume counters, we bet you'll love this stuff just as much as we do. It's sweet... [More]

Roscoe's Mac 'n Cheese

It might seem obvious to order chicken and waffles when you're at the famous Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles, but not everyone realizes that a side dish of macaroni and cheese is just as essential. Now, even if you don't live in Los Angeles, you can have a big... [More]

A trendy A-line trench with a ruffle? Yes, please! The Metropolitan Miss Coat in Cobalt ($125) breaks free of the taupe mold and instead opts for a rich blue that oughta flatter just about every skin tone. The icing on the cake, however, is that dainty ruffle lining the diagonal... [More]


Honeycomb Elk Wall Hook

Twenty #TBT Tank

Pick up this Twenty #TBT Tank ($65) and take a photo of yourself in it and post it next Thursday. Then do that forever. We're getting more and more used to people using internet slang in real life ("hashtag such and such" and so on) but now it's making its... [More]

White Fretwork Tray Table

We need to set up one of these White Fretwork Tray Tables ($425) in every room of the house. In the kitchen, one could function near the window as a potted herb stand, and in the living room, we could set one up as a wet bar. In our dreams,... [More]


Kenzie Exotic Leather Pumps

We looked around for the elusive Dalmatian snake that these Kenzie Exotic Leather Pumps ($138) must have taken their inspiration from, but we couldn't find such a species (and we don't really like Google image searching for snakes for too long). No problem! We like imaginary snakes even more.... [More]

Polaroll Toilet Paper Holder

Normally, seeing a camera in the bathroom would freak us out, but the Polaroll Toilet Paper Holder ($27) is an appreciated touch of nostalgia. Rather than Polaroid photos, the contraption dispenses TP to adjacent potty squatters. Still, old habits die hard, so don't be surprised if you find yourself blowing... [More]


Grey Flowers Maternity/Nursing Top

This dual maternity/nursing Grey Flowers Top ($48) from Round Bellies is a breath of fresh air. Not literally, especially if you're several months pregnant (that shortness-of-breath feeling won't go away until the babe pops out), but it is lovely to look at. Most nursing tops are solid-colored and frumpy, but... [More]


Crea Asymmetrical Belted Zip Jacket

We're suckers for complicated jackets. Bring on the zippers, folds, asymmetrical hemlines, belts, and buttons - we view all these embellishments as a challenge. The Crea ($258, on sale) is the next project to tackle; there are so many ways to wear this warm wool beauty - as a snug... [More]


D.S. & Durga Bowmakers

We used to really love the smell of gas stations, but quickly stopped telling people that since they looked at us kind of funny. But although our fancy for that petrol scent has passed, we still like smells that don't usually come in bottles, like paper, leather, and freshly shaved... [More]


Lovebird Lariat Necklace

Keep the ultimate symbol of peace close to your heart with the Lovebird Lariat Necklace ($35). Although we think the olive branch is traditionally carried by the bird (and not the other way around), the meaning is all the same. Love, peace, and serenity to all!... [More]

Kate Spade Saturday Weekender Tote

We think the Kate Spade Saturday Weekender Tote ($175) in Steel Blue/Lagoon has a rather ethereal quality to it.

Ron Swanson Bust

While our favorite part about Parks and Recreation is its celebration of female friendships, we can't help but also admire the manliest of characters: Ron Swanson. Emotionless, principled, and an extreme carnivore...he's the kind of man who deserves to be commemorated, which is why we want to add this Ron... [More]



A contemporary take on the gong, the Gonger ($80) is one part unique conversation piece, one part loud instrument. As such, that makes it a nice gift for a friend whose decor skews ancient Asian, but an awful gift for a friend with rambunctious children. Plan accordingly.... [More]


Prince Charming Ring

You don't need a Prince Charming to whisk you away to his castle on a hill; you just need one who will go splitsies with you on a Thursday night pizza special. Likewise, you don't need to kiss a lot of frogs to find your pizza-loving prince, you just need... [More]


Purr-fect Timing Watch

"Oh, gee. We'd, uh, love to stay and prolong this great date, but look at the time! We've got to get home and feed the cat. Err, cats. Lots of cats. We have lots of cats at home because they don't spend several hours over dinner lecturing us about the... [More]


Hannahk Long Hans Pendant

If Studio 54 were still around, we'd reach for the Hannahk Long Hans Pendant ($204) - a gorgeous waterfall of shimmery shiny brass and silver - to go along with our deep V-neck top (which would be made of sequins) when we hit the famous nightclub. This is assuming that... [More]


N-Galaxy Infinity Scarf

Let us be the first of (at least) a dozen people to say this to you: Your scarf! It's out of this world! The N-Galaxy infinity scarf ($42) from Steve Madden.... [More]


Kate Spade Margie Top

Ah, Paris. The alluring "City of Love" is known for its quaint architecture. So, truthfully, what could be more romantic than dressing like a Parisian railing? The charming curlicue pattern of the Kate Spade Margie Top ($398) has us daydreaming of a leisurely brunch at a Parisian café. Although this... [More]


Epicurean Meat & Cheese Gift Basket

We doubt that we'd actually "weep tears of joy" for the Epicurean Meat & Cheese Gift Basket ($75) like its own description suggests, but with two kinds of salami, the meat sweats are a strong possibility. And with the brie, aged goat cheddar, sweet and spicy mustard, and water crackers,... [More]


Star Statement Necklace

The Star Statement Necklace ($54) by Sora Designs is our kind of accessory. The thirty-eight-inch brass chain is broken up by ten different star links, making it a pretty piece to wear over a casual fitted tee or even your favorite little black dress. Or your little red dress...or blue.... [More]

Hands in the air: who's had a big crush on Beck since "Loser" back in '93? Yep, guilty. (Are we showing our age here?) After a long hiatus, Beck's got a new album out, and Morning Phase ($10) is gonna make us fall in love with the quirky singer-songwriter all... [More]


Travelon Travel Steamer

After carefully selecting outfits for each day of our vacation, it's beyond frustrating to open up our luggage and discover that all of our clothing has gotten wrinkled while in transit. The Travelon Travel Steamer ($45) is a compact, lightweight device that requires nothing but tap water and an electrical... [More]


Dougray Cutout Slip-On Sneakers

The problem with purchasing great new spring items before the snow has melted is that it wears on our patience. We adore these Dougray Cutout Slip-On Sneakers ($100) from Jeffrey Campbell, but now that we've got 'em, they've gotta stay in their box until the weather warms and the sidewalks... [More]


Vintage Long & Lean Tee

It's about that time of year where we are awkwardly transitioning between thick sweaters and tees - so the Vintage Long & Lean Tee ($25) is just the ticket for layering conundrum. It and other select clothing items at Victoria's Secret are marked down to twenty-five bucks through the end... [More]


Cheap Thrill: Petite Fox Pendant Necklace

Much like the "Put A Bird On It" ubiquity of a couple years ago, "What Does the Fox Say" is fast reaching maximum pop culture saturation. We flat-out refuse to buy the official Ylvis What Does the Fox Say? children's book or the WDTFS? Three Fox Moon Shirt ($26), but... [More]

Zara Coat With Pockets

We couldn't think of a better way to battle the in-between spring weather than by wearing this Zara Coat With Pockets ($159). All right, so it doesn't have a hood and it's not water-resistant, so you won't want to go wearing it during the drizzle, but it is a beautiful... [More]


Wish You Were Beer Pint Glass

Your friend passed on biweekly movie night with the gals to go out with her new man? You can't really blame her too much, especially since you've all seen Mermaids about a dozen times. What you can do, however, is show her how much fun she's missing. Raise a Wish... [More]


Wool and the Gang Ashleigh Sweater

Don't worry about the "Wool Me Tender" phrase. The beauty of the Wool and the Gang Ashleigh Sweater ($176) (other than its hip cropped cut and exaggerated sleeves) is that you can pick whatever phrase you want (up to twelve letters) to be embroidered on the front in large chunky... [More]


Currey & Company Safari Table Lamp

The Safari Table Lamp ($450) from Currey & Company will help you light up your room, and not just because it's a lamp. The bold patterning along the base is a guaranteed eye-catcher, so make it the focal point of your side table and accent it with a few books... [More]


Floral Eyeball Bow

If not for the ocular embellishment, this Floral Eyeball Bow ($8) would look like you dug it out of a box of your old hair accessories from your parents' basement. (We definitely had a dress made out of that floral fabric.) The strangely realistic eye (check out the detail in... [More]


Polite As Fuck Tank Top

There's no better way to announce to the world that you still mind your manners than with a Polite Tank ($24), available in both black and gray.

Grab the Vodka Plaque

The Grab the Vodka Plaque ($14) pretty much sums up everything we already know about life and displays it in pink glitter. There isn't a single problem that can't be solved - or at least bitched about at length - with some good quality girl time.... [More]


Brehan Todd Lempicka Dangle Earrings

We're slowly coming down from our Olympics binge high, so excuse us if everything reminds us of a winter event. These Brehan Todd earrings ($30), for example, made us think of the highly specialized gloves those short-track speed skaters wear. (Minds are mysterious things.) When Olympic fever dies down and...

How Should a Person Be?

Having an existential crisis? Perhaps a thought-provoking novel will provide some clarity. How Should a Person Be?

Even if the protagonist doesn't find all of the answers, at least... [More]


Rockin' Bodysuit

Even though American Hustle wasn't nominated for an Oscar for Best Makeup and Hairstyling, it's obviously had the most impact of all the movies this season.

Doubtblush: Lucky Day Personalized Bikini Thong

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]

Jessica Simpson Jackie Tote

With a ton of different color combination options, Jessica Simpson's Jackie Tote ($68) is on our list of spring must-haves.

Terrace Sheath

When an occasion calls for black, but you can't help but serve up a pop of color, Anthropologie's Terrace Sheath ($120) has you covered. The underlying floral print peeks out just enough to make a statement, yet it's the patterned sheath that does most of the talking.... [More]

Beetnik Foods Gluten Free Chocolate Chile Tarts

Sure, it's easier than ever to eat gluten-free now that grocers and restaurants have caught wind of the once-neglected dietary need. But baking without flour products is still tricky - and we say there's no shame in letting Beetnik Foods get their hands dirty in the kitchen. We had a... [More]

Cheap Thrill: Pink Bunny Coin Purse

Easter is kind of an awkward holiday for adults to celebrate. Egg hunts are kids-only events and microwaving Peeps seems a little too freshman year of college. But if you want to celebrate the day anyway, tuck your brunch mimosa money into a Pink Bunny Coin Purse ($4). Alternatively, you... [More]


Mountain Kaleidoscope Circle Cowl Scarf

Its almost time to make the switch from a neck-warming wool scarf to something lighter and more decorative. We're considering this Mountain Kaleidoscope Circle Cowl Scarf ($44) by Simka Sol. It's made of jersey, so it'll take the abuses of daily wear while we transition into the inconsistent spring weather.... [More]


IceMilk Pecan Orchard Pleasantries Apron

If you hear your doorbell ring, it's just us, delivering a plate of baked goods.

[More]


Sprout Pencil: Herb Pack

Normally, it's a sad day when you've worked your pencil down to a stub and have to toss it out. With Sprout Pencils ($20), however, that's the point when the real fun begins. Each Sprout pencil contains an herb seed, so you can place the pencil carcass in soil, water... [More]


Selfie Tank

This tank top ($48) celebrates the Oxford Dictionaries 2013 Word of the Year. (Surely they made a tank for "GIF" in 2012 and "squeezed middle" for 2011.) Though perhaps it's not a trendy top, but a conceptual piece, commenting on the fact that every time you (and your shirt) are... [More]


Thelonious Monk Paris 1969

Need a new way to jazz up your evening? Turn off Netflix and pop in this CD/DVD combo ($13). The tunes span Thelonious Monk's career and the DVD shows footage from a live performance in Paris. By the time you reach for disc two, you'll feel pretty smug: you've been... [More]


Xyron 250 Sticker Machine

It's no exaggeration to say that your life will get at least twice as good after you buy a Xyron 250 Sticker Machine ($25). Got a photo of your friends? You can turn that into a sticker! How about a doodle your niece drew with crayons? That can be a... [More]


Chelsea Tech Wallet

We pack pretty lightly on an everyday basis, so this Chelsea Tech Wallet ($59) is perfect for us. With an easily accessible pocket for a phone, slots for credit cards, and space for all our dollar, dollar bills, y'all, this wristlet is compact and wastes no space - and spares... [More]


Matisse Balance Bootie

Time to start planning your warmer days wardrobe. In case you don't have a pair of workhorse slingback heels yet, may we suggest these Matisse Balance Booties ($90)?

Jonathan Adler Smart Phone Dock

Rotary phones look pretty cool, but we haven't seen one used to make a phone call since the 1980s. At least the Jonathan Adler Smart Phone Dock ($48) has function as well as style. Set your newfangled voodoo phone on the dock and thread the cord through the bottom. Now... [More]


Good Luck Pasta

Looking for a themed dinner to eat on St. Patrick's Day? green and gold shamrock shaped pasta ($8) is an easy and tasty homage to the holiday. Granted, it's technically more Italian than Irish, but it certainly beats the alternative: corned beef and cabbage. Blech!... [More]


iTrackMyTime App

Oh, boy. We just spent a few days fiddling around with the iTrackMyTime App ($2). Simple in both design and function, it helps us track and record how we spend our time. We now know the exact breakdown of how we split our hours between working, surfing the web, preparing... [More]


Illamasqua Cream Pigment

Cream shadows are always a gamble, but we still throw down the cashola because when they're good, they're really good. Illamasqua's Cream Pigment ($26) delivers with an unrivaled fierceness. It's a long-lasting shadow that doesn't fade or feather, and the color is especially vivid when applied with a firm hand.... [More]


Smartphone Charging Wallet

You'd think by now we'd be better at remembering to charge our phones before leaving the house, but we don't even want to admit how often we've seen our battery inconveniently die in the past month alone. For those many times when you find yourself without your charger or an... [More]


Kate Spade New York Broome Street Polka Dot Jeans

Here's our dilemma: can we wear these Kate Spade New York jeans ($198) with a polka-dot top? Will we look like a fun fashion tribute to Yayoi Kusama or will we risk comparisons to big top performers? It's a terrifying possibility. They'd probably be okay with a dark top with... [More]


Long-Sleeve Embroidered Bambolina Dress

During today's segment of drop-dead-gorgeous-things-that-are-ridiculously-unaffordable, we bring you Valentino's Long-Sleeve Embroidered Bambolina Dress ($6,690). Swoon. The mesh skater dress is adorned with intricate embroidery in golds and peaches. We would Aspire/Acquire this if we could, but even after digging into the far reaches of the internet, we're left empty-handed. It's... [More]


Farfalloni Pot Grips

Farfalle is most definitely the best pasta shape (though we've always just called them bow ties), and we're not too mature to pass up these Farfalloni Pot Grips ($18). Cooking up a big plate of pasta is one of our favorite activities, and these clever silicone handles only make it... [More]


Bario Neal Stingray Hair Stick

Pointy hair accessories have always had a little bit of menace to them, thanks to the original "Snow White" fairytale in which our heroine is poisoned by a hair comb. But this Stingray Hair Stick ($62), cast from the creature's hidden and poisonous barb, really amps up the fear factor.... [More]


Paper Pouf Pom Pom Chandelier

We aren't planning a cutesy wedding and our home decorating goals are far from "ridiculous Anthropologie catalog", but dagnabbit we are itching to buy this Paper Pouf Pom Pom Chandelier ($150) and do something with it. Does anybody need an over-themed baby shower thrown for them? A background for a... [More]

Tieks by Gavrieli

So, just like Louboutins are known for their iconic red soles, these Tieks by Gavrieli ($175) are trying to make the turquoise sole happen. We'll see if that works out for them. They're certainly luxurious, and their classic styles (like the ones pictured) come in a rainbow of colors in... [More]


Midnight Rider Palace of Sin Dress

The Midnight Rider Palace of Sin Dress ($136) is an unsettling tribute to one of rock's tragic geniuses. It's inspired by Gram Parsons' signature suit, emblazoned with images of the sins that contributed to his eventual downfall, making it like some kind of crazy fatal clothing horoscope. Borrow the look,... [More]


Lamu Duvet Cover & Sham

Now that the sun is rising earlier and setting later, throw open your curtains and let the light in. And don't stop there. Switch out your winter bedding for a new, brighter set, like the Lamu Duvet Cover & Sham ($78-280) at Serena & Lily. The white and coral pattern... [More]

Who's a tired kitty? This black satin Cat Eye Mask ($24) is a cute way to keep the light out of your eyes when the world seems to be conspiring against your getting any sleep. First one to make a "cat nap" joke loses!... [More]



Plug-in sandwich makers are too easy. If all that stands between us and a buttery, gooey grilled cheese is a turn of the dial, our diets are going to go seriously downhill. If, on the other hand, we've got to start up a fire, or at the very least spend... [More]


Sun and Moon Stone Crescent Ring

Okay, we know this ring is a pipe dream, so until we meet somebody with enough expendable income and who loves us enough to gift it, we're going to pin it, bookmark it, blog it, and e-mail it around until there is literally nowhere else for this image to go.... [More]


Freds at Barneys New York Peppered Peanuts

Why, exactly, would we buy a $38 jar of peanuts? Probably because it's the only thing we can afford from Barneys. We've got to start our luxury shopping life somewhere. Freds at Barneys New York Peppered Peanuts ($38)... [More]


Sunny Bang Private Label Probiotic Hot Sauce

Sunny Bang Private Label Probiotic Hot Sauce ($15) is made in Brooklyn (because of course it is) and has its own merchandising. But we can't be the only ones sick to death of getting our probiotics through yogurt; adding a little heat to get our digestion in gear is more... [More]


Merino Silk-Panel Sweater in Antique Floral

We are suffering symptoms of Spring Collection Overload. Everywhere we turn, we see gorgeous new pieces, like J.Crew's Merino Silk-Panel Sweater in Antique Floral ($118), and our fingers start itching to type in our (memorized) credit card numbers. We pale at the thought that it'll sell out in our sizes... [More]


Roma Norte Jeweled Necklace

In a world inundated with bejeweled floral neckwear, it's easy to get lost in the crowd. Enter the Roma Norte Jeweled Necklace ($38), which boldly defies symmetry with its mismatched baubles and colors. We love its sparkle and randomness - it's like having a flower for every mood! Or more... [More]


Anchor Corkscrew

Yo ho ho and a bottle of... wine. You may never be able to afford to buy a yacht, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the nautical lifestyle. The Anchor Corkscrew ($32) is a cute way to pop a cork whether you're sailing the seven seas or just downing... [More]


Ladakh Woodstock Dress

Lunch Love Notes

When you break it down, sending out one of these Dempsey & Carroll Lunch Love Notes ($65 for ten) will cost you about the same as your noon-hour turkey wrap. On the upside, you'll have someone to dine with, and catching up with a favorite friend in the middle of... [More]


Retro Coin Bank Toaster

Piggy banks are nice and all, but sometimes you need some toast to go with that bacon. The Retro Coin Bank Toaster ($18) puts a different spin on change storage. Enjoy sliding your spare nickels and dimes into the slots as if they were slices of bread until you've saved... [More]


The Catalina Large Canvas Weekender

We're in love with weekender bags for many reasons. First of all, they're usually associated with sweet, quick getaways. They also fit an extraordinary amount of stuff; this makes us impressed with our own packing skills. This Lo & Sons Catalina Weekender ($120) fits the bill for a perfect weekender,... [More]


Clint Mini Task Lamp

The 1950s design of the Clint Mini Task Lamp ($99) is just the icing on the cake. The lamp is cute, but once you set one up on your nightstand, you'll be lauding its functionality over its aesthetic. The round head swivels with ease to shed light exactly where you... [More]


Tulip Teapot

If we're drooling over a tea set, does that mean we're officially old? Hmm, we say we're old enough to appreciate its aesthetic charms, but not old (nor financially secure) enough to buy the whole kit and caboodle outright. We'll start with the quintessential piece: the Tulip Teapot ($110). Maybe... [More]


Bobbi Brown Beach Eau de Parfum

You can almost feel the sand beneath your feet and a light ocean mist when applying Beach Eau de Parfum ($70). The fragrance is expertly crafted by the scent specialists at Bobbi Brown with sea spray, jasmine, and mandarin, which combine to evoke the smell of the beach - salty... [More]


Four Leaf Clover Expandable Wire Bracelet

Okay, so this Four Leaf Clover Expandable Wire Bracelet ($28) from Alex and Ani is a little less...uh, flashy...than most Saint Patrick's Day paraphernalia, but we're considering that a good thing. Wear it with a cute dress in a festive color, head to a quiet happy hour spot, and you'll... [More]


Antique Map of London

This printed Antique Map of London ($25-50) isn't just purdy to look at, it's also a fascinating peek into the past. The map shows the famed city's streets and landmarks as they existed in the 1750s. It'll look lovely lining one of your apartment's walls. Just don't hang it too... [More]

Glamour Magnets

The contents of your fridge may be less costly than lobster, caviar, or a gold bar, but that doesn't mean that they're any less indulgent. A carton of leftover takeout, a tube of cookie dough, and a half-full bottle of margarita mix can take a dull evening and turn it... [More]


Victoria's Secret Soft Nude Leather Moto Jacket

A leather jacket is eternally bad-ass, but maybe you want to ease yourself into such a high level of coolness.

Gourmet Mint Flavored Coffee Spoons

On those days when we can't make it to Starbucks, we'd give anything to add a little bit of flavor to our home-brewed pot of joe. If cream and sugar just don't cut it, give these Gourmet Mint Flavored Coffee Spoons ($36) a whirl. Not only does the mint flavoring... [More]


Pearl Margo Maxi

So the Pearl Margo Maxi robe ($159) is being sold specifically to brides - but hey, we don't need a wedding as an excuse to rock this ethereal getup. All we need is a mimosa in hand or a field of wildflowers. Plus, it seems pretty useful for any future... [More]


Buffalo Plaid Circle Bed

Would that we could switch places with our pooches, settle into the center of this Buffalo Plaid Circle Bed ($98-168) from Waggo (which has been conveniently dragged next to a heading vent), and sleep the day away with nary a thought about the cold weather. Alas, it's our jobs as... [More]

Guerlain Super Aqua-Eye Anti-Puffiness Smoothing Eye Patch

Monogrammed Luxe Hooded Towel

Why do we live in a world with an overabundance of Snuggies and a complete lack of oversized hooded towels? Seriously, if Bespoke Custom Gifts made the Monogrammed Luxe Hooded Towel ($50) in larger sizes, we'd snatch one in a hurry. Alas, they're only big enough to wrap around babies... [More]


Flower Garland Wall Decals

Not everyone is enthusiastic about crafting, painting, and DIYing their home decor, and that's totally cool (even if Pinterest makes you feel ashamed of your lack of know-how). Jonathan Adler can do the work for you, saving you time, energy, and frustration. His Flower Garland Wall Decals ($43) are pretty... [More]


Daybreak Scuff Slippers

Are these the best-looking slippers in the world? No. Are they comfy, warm, and lined with fleece? You bet. Plus, you have a much better chance of getting Fido to fetch your slippers if they have his likeness on them. Daybreak Scuff Slippers ($50)... [More]

We don't often find ourselves facing a lazy morning, but when we do, we reach for our new favorite cookbook, Whole-Grain Mornings: New Breakfast Recipes to Span the Seasons ($14) by Megan Gordon.

Hair chalk is still happening. Throw some streaks of pink into your hair with The Body Shop Tickle Me Pink Hair Chalk ($12). When you're done with the look, simply wash it out with your regular shampoo.... [More]


Helen Levi Porcelain Fruit Necklace

We like to eat, eat, eat, pineapples and strawberries...and cantaloupe and watermelon. We also like to wear them, especially if they're rendered as adorable porcelain charms by artist Helen Levi. These summertime fruits conjure up dreams of backyard BBQs and beach picnics, and that's where you'll be wearing your new... [More]


Victoria's Secret T-Shirt Bra

A new T-shirt bra ($40-45) from Victoria's Secret? You may say why reinvent the wheel, but then again, why not. This soft demi bra is as basic as it gets, but sometimes you don't need frills and flowers. Spend $100 or more before 3/6/2014 and use code SHIP100 to get... [More]


Coffee Lip Balm

Each tube of all-natural Coffee Lip Balm ($5) from Little Flower Soap Co. is filled with lip-nourishing ingredients (including a coffee-scented oil, which makes the balm smell like the inside of your favorite café). But you know what they aren't full of? Sweeteners or sugars, which sure do taste good,... [More]


Writers Between the Covers

We love a good trashy romance novel as much as the next gal, but there's something extra titillating about real life sultry tales. Writers Between the Covers: The Scandalous Romantic Lives of Legendary Literary Casanovas, Coquettes, and Cads ($12) by Joni Rendon and Shannon McKenna Schmidt spares no sordid detail... [More]


Vintage Stamps Sets

Maybe your inner middle schooler will cringe at the thought of paying to collect the fifty stamps in the Vintage Stamps Set ($8), curated by Angela Liguori, but she's not as self-assured as you are. You know that you want those gorgeous things because each one comes with its own... [More]


Earring Chain

Getting a little tired of your perfectly ladylike and reserved post earrings? Spice 'em up with this fourteen-karat gold earring chain ($60) from Vale Jewelry. You'll turn those tasteful pearl earrings from Grandma into something that's closer to Rihanna than Rose Nylund.... [More]


Salmon Tiger Cushion Cover

Are woodland creatures a little too cutesy for your home decor needs? You should try out Alice Oehr's Tiger cushion cover ($70) on one of your throw pillows. We bet the big cat duo will add the right amount of fierceness to your space. Take that, squirrels and baby bunnies!... [More]


50 Ways to Wear a Scarf

We know "50 Ways to Say Goodbye" and "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover", but here's something a little more upbeat: 50 Ways to Wear A Scarf ($11), the new book by Lauren Friedman of the blog My Closet in Sketches. Her charming fashion illustrations will take you through the... [More]


ASOS Rainbow Print Boyfriend T-Shirt

Don't wait until the storm passes to look for a rainbow - put on the Rainbow Print Boyfriend T-Shirt ($26) and be your own good luck charm. We doubt a big pot o' gold will appear at your feet, but maybe you'll spy a penny on the sidewalk (heads up,... [More]

Teethin' Smart ez grip Orange Massaging Teether

There's a pretty small window of opportunity to influence your child's good eating habits. Start 'em young by giving them a citrus-shaped Teethin' Smart ez grip Orange Massaging Teether ($6) from Innobaby. While they drool and mow down on it, perhaps they'll also get accustomed to the look of an... [More]


Cynthia Steffe Romy Dress

From the front, the Romy Dress ($98) from Cynthia Steffe is great, no doubt. With a loose top and form-fitting bottom in a rad little black and white print, it's going to look good on a lot of ladies. The back is ruche central, where all the ruching has gathered... [More]


Does This Make Us Look Cheap? February 21, 2014

No, we're not getting you ready for St. Patty's already. We are cluing you in to the hot neutral for spring: hunter green. It looks sharp and modern paired with pastels, but isn't so floral and fresh that you can't get away with it while it's still snowing out. Seriously,... [More]


Krispy Kreme Dozen Giclée Print

Even if Krispy Kreme donuts aren't on your daily healthy eating plan, you can still make them part of your life with Joël Penkman's giclée print ($90). Perhaps just seeing a dozen, perfectly formed, glazed, sprinkled, and iced vessels of sugar in your kitchen every morning will give you a... [More]


Blend #55: Calm

Is it one of those days that seems determined to unravel your usually cool and collected attitude? Before you give in and fly off the handle at the lack of clean forks in the breakroom (seriously, it takes thirty seconds to wash them, people!), try dabbing on a bit of... [More]


Chevron Flora II Area Rug

The Chevron Flora II Area Rug ($88) is far more than an accent piece, it is the rug of infinite possibilities! This stylish floral-and-stripe combo would make the perfect bedroom landscape. Or living room landscape. Oo, maybe we could use that pop of color in our hallway. The nicest bathmat... [More]


Grown Alchemist Intensive Hand Cream

We took a gamble by purchasing the Grown Alchemist Intensive Hand Cream ($27). A few of the first ingredients listed were Persian rose and argan extract, so we figured the stuff could help alleviate our perpetually dry hands. Not only does the cream rub in quickly and soften up our... [More]


Silver DNA Ring

If you think dinosaurs never had any contact with Homo sapiens and your fish bumper sticker comes with legs, then we're betting this Silver DNA Ring ($85) is right up your alley. It's a great way to show off your appreciation for the role a quartet of impersonal molecules play... [More]

Vera Bradley Throw Blanket

This Is the Town: A Tribute to Nilsson (Volume 1)

We hope you're already a fan of Harry Nilsson. The cheeky singer-songwriter (who was a favorite of John Lennon's) has been on rotation for most of our lives but doesn't get nearly enough appreciation, if you ask us. Twenty performers who share the love have recorded a track for This... [More]


Gemmy Inflatable Outdoor Movie Screen

Going outside is nice in theory, but who has time for nature with a Netflix queue this long? Fortunately, the Gemmy Inflatable Outdoor Movie Screen ($277) allows you to get some fresh air without sacrificing any TV time. At twelve feet wide, the self-inflating screen is big enough that you... [More]


Drake Crewneck Sweatshirt

We have Drake Weather set as our homepage, so why wouldn't we have this Drake Crewneck Sweatshirt ($60) as our uniform? We've been smitten with the strange painting of the rapper from his latest album since we first saw the artwork - and obviously wearing a larger-than-life version of it... [More]


Spicy Lover's Peanut Sampler

It's hard to avoid innuendo when discussing our love for hot nuts, but seriously: the spicier the better. The Spicy Lover's Peanut Sampler ($32 on sale) contains six cans of seasoned peanuts.

This Annie Williams clutch ($400) is a handcrafted purse that's built for cold snaps and chilly nights with its chunky wool base and tanned leather upper, so while you're keeping your toes and fingers... [More]


TONYMOLY Egg Pore Blackhead Out Oil Gel

Can oil (and egg white extract) really remove our blackheads? It sounds counterintuitive, but how many times have you tried and failed to get gum out of your kid's hair with soap, only to find it wipes away like a dream with a little peanut butter? We're not sure if... [More]


Inappropriate Thoughts Card

We don't get that many chances to use the amazing scratch-off "technology" anymore (we had to stop buying lottery tickets because it got out of hand) so it's an absolute delight when we get the rare opportunity. When you give a very special someone this Inappropriate Thoughts card ($5), not... [More]


Playlist Stacking Rings

These Playlist Stacking Rings ($28) are aptly named. Just like a song on a music mix, each ring is great on its own, but better surrounded by the others. Luckily, Madewell limited their playlist to five items; ours usually get out of control, and it'd be hard to fit twenty... [More]


Doubtblush: MYKITA Daisuke Sunglasses

In our wide and varied travels across the information superhighway, in addition to the fierce and fabulous, we encounter the insane, the arcane, and the absolutely friggin' ridiculous. Sometimes the paraphernalia, tchotchkes, and fashion disasters we come across are so atrocious we have to vent our disbelief and horror, but... [More]


Buckler's Camp Blend Candle

Ah, the great outdoors - where the barriers between you and nature get broken down in the form of thorns, mosquito bites, and raccoons trying to force their way into your cooler. For those less rustic types who'd like to enjoy a whiff of wilderness without all the poison ivy,... [More]


Iron Fist Lamb Chop Heel

Want to embrace the oncoming Easter season with a little juvenile regression? Trot into church in your Sunday best and these delightfully saccharine Iron Fist Lamb Chop Shoes ($50). We hear a good pair of heels are a good offense while competing with the kiddos in the egg hunt.... [More]


Floral Eye Mask

We've posted about a lot of sleep masks in the past, but we've never actually worn one for more than a night or two before it went forgotten in a nightstand drawer somewhere. That is, until we slipped on this sweet-looking Floral Eye Mask ($22). We're not sure why the... [More]


Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son's First Year

If evolution had really been working the way it was supposed to, then the placenta would have doubled as an instruction manual for how to care for that new crusty, screaming, half-blind pile of need the nurses just dropped onto your chest. Sadly, we're left to our own devices, the... [More]

Avène Cold Cream Lip Balm

This stick of Avène Cold Cream Lip Balm ($14) isn't going to win any awards in the most luscious lip balm category, but we're not too choked up about it. It does exactly what we want it to do: gives us a matte, scent-free coverage we can wear under our... [More]

Lollipop Lantern

Well, we wouldn't say that this stunning Lollipop Lantern ($800), sold at Furbish, is a lollipop or a lantern, but the name is memorable. So is the hanging light fixture, with its bright red lacquer and gold leaf detailing. At thirty inches by fourteen, it's big enough to replace the... [More]


Coordinates Collection Legend Bracelet

Can you remember specifically, like degrees, minutes, and seconds specifically, where your first child was born? Or where you met your future life partner? Or where you got your cat? If you can't, do some research and pick up this Coordinates Collection Legend Bracelet ($204), which will etch your special... [More]

RAW Lounge Chair

What's different about the RAW Lounge Chair ($1,695) by Jens Fager? Well, for one, It's a cheery green shade we can see livening up our living room the instant we find the perfect spot for it. But we're more astounded by the fact that each chair is completely hand-carved. That... [More]


Rue Stiic V Back Maxi Dress

SerpentSea Bracelets

The color combos and intricate knots on these SerpentSea Bracelets ($65) are gorgeous, no doubt, and the story behind them makes them even better.

Jolly Roger Needlepoint Coaster Set

Arrr, you may be inhabitin' a pirate ship, but that doesn't mean you're a complete savage! Protect your plank and other polished surfaces by insisting all your landlubber visitors set their grog atop the Jolly Roger Needlepoint Coaster Set ($75) from Smathers & Branson. We know you'd have liked to... [More]


Mighty Mite Pet Lover Vacuum Cleaner

Our dog has mastered fetching and rolling over, but despite our best efforts, no amount of training has managed to teach him how to clean up after himself. Alas, we suppose that frequent vacuuming is a small price to pay for his companionship. The Mighty Mite Pet Lover Vacuum Cleaner... [More]


Lumberjack Bottle Stopper

Did you spend another long day traipsing through the woods to fell another tree and cut it up into woodstove-sized chunks only to get home and realize your evening bottle of wine had soured because it wasn't plugged up with a wine stopper? Yeah,, too? Okay, no, but we're... [More]

Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer

With all due respect to the Spice Girls, Pussy Riot is a real example of girl power. We love Pussy Riot for protesting for social change in Russia...and on a more superficial level, we kind of want some of those colorful knit hat masks for our own mischievous purposes. If... [More]

At the speed this trend is still chugging along, it won't be long until there's a museum dedicated to nail art, right? When there is, these paint stroke nail wraps ($12) from - who else? - Museum Nails will be stuck under glass and admired for generations to come. Until... [More]

Dusty Rose Place Cards

Curses, Pinterest! You are continually giving us a false sense of our own DIY talents (which hover right around zilch). Our latest botch-up? A few cutesy place cards to use at our next dinner party. By the time we f'ed up the third one, we scrapped the whole project and... [More]


Small Hibiscus Silicone Lid

This Hibiscus Silicone Lid ($10) is almost too pretty to smooth onto our leftover portion of tuna or bowl of diced bell peppers, almost. We'll still reach for it long before we resign ourselves to futzing with plastic wrap, because it forms an airtight seal and can be used in... [More]


Ten Cacti Screenprint

Those of us who live in Southern California get a lot of grief from out-of-towners about how there's no greenery. It's a shame they overlook the almighty cactus!* But haters gonna hate, and we will rep our local plant life outdoors and in with this Ten Cacti Screenprint ($48). *And... [More]


Front to Back Lighting Tank

Mix a little graphic interest with a daring, plunging V-neck and you get this Front to Back Lighting Tank ($32). The mesh material in the front keeps it from being too risqué, but we recognize the bra situation may be a...situation. Pair the top with a pretty bralette or bandeau... [More]


Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick

To hell with lip balm. Our lips are also parched for color - impenetrable, badass color. Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick ($18) kicks our natural hue to the curb, completely obscuring it with a choice of wild shades, from fierce pinks to a bewildering ice blue.... [More]


Clare Vivier Backgammon Set

It's time to upgrade your portable backgammon set! We know yours has just been ravaged by constant use, so better invest in Clare Vivier's durable leather version ($249), with a zipper purse for game pieces and a game board that can be simply rolled up, tied, and thrown in your... [More]

The Great Northern Keyring

We aren't the only ones stuck in the 1990s - that's why we're buying a Great Northern Keyring ($6) for all of our friends who are Twin Peaks fans. We just hope that the key we get leads to a guest room where a young Kyle MacLachlan is exercising in... [More]

LEGO Gift Wrap

We made the mistake of agreeing to see a matinee of The Lego Movie this past week. We think the film was probably good, but it was sometimes hard to hear over the sound of screaming children. Judging by their enthusiasm, we can only assume that this LEGO Gift Wrap... [More]


Banana Juice Sweetening Hand Cream

We can't rub in a little bit of Perlier's Banana Juice Sweetening Hand Cream ($20) without thinking that, while yes, there is always money in the banana stand, the Bluths should have definitely branched out into the skin care industry.... [More]

Mint Chocolate Trek Toothpaste

Have you tried Crest's new line of Be toothpastes?

And when we say... [More]


Presto! Long Memo Pad

As much as it might let down Michele Weinberger, we don't find Post-its to be the end-all, be-all of memos. They clutter up our workspace, and after a while we just stop seeing them despite the fact that they frame our computer monitor. A more efficient way to keep our... [More]


Q Squared NYC Twisted Bowl

Fun and functional and affordable? Say it ain't so. Three of our favorite qualities are embodied by Q Squared NYC's Twisted Bowl ($13), a delicate and beautifully hued dish designed to hold anything from a trio of dips to keys and on-the-go accessories, from dainty appetizers to rings and earrings....

Clover Cushion

It may not have four leaves, but we still think the pink clover on this Clover Cushion ($80) by Tove Johansson can bring you good luck. Not the kind of gal who believes in luck? No problem. The throw will also bring you admiration from friends and family when they... [More]


Benefit Gimme Brow

We're willing to set down our pencils and give Benefit's Gimme Brow wand ($22) a try. The volumizing gel fills in sparse spots and darkens brows for natural-looking definition, but it's the applicator that does the heavy lifting. No, really, it lifts and separates brow hairs so you can coat... [More]


Mason Jar Stamp Kit

Do you have an annoying friend who brags that she's mastered just about every arts and crafts project on Pinterest? You complimented the way she used popsicle sticks to make an iPad case for herself, but secretly you wished she would shove that glue gun where the sun don't shine.... [More]

Red Big O Key Ring

Salted Vanilla Beach Hair Sea Salt Spray

We're definitely suckers for beauty products that smell like food, and our noses have led us to our latest obsession: Treat's Salted Vanilla Beach Hair Sea Salt Spray ($16).

Doubtblush: Urban Renewal Tulle-Skirt Overall Dress

In our wide and varied travels across the information superhighway, in addition to the fierce and fabulous, we encounter the insane, the arcane, and the absolutely friggin' ridiculous.

Say I Love You Pillowcases

Forget boring monograms, His and Hers pillows are now much livelier with these doodle-covered pillowcases.

Self Portrait Lace Illusion Flare Dress

Panic Button Light Switch Replacement Kit

It's juvenile, for sure, but we kinda really wanna replace our basement light switch with the Panic Button Light Switch ($25). We guess it speaks to the kid in us. Our hearts always did (okay, still do) little flip-flops at the top of the creaky basement stairs. Who knows what's... [More]

Anyone who coos at you that "parenthood is a magical journey" and tells you that you are "so very blessed" is either several decades past their child-rearing days or straight-up lying to your face.

The Sensual Skin Enhancer

While the Sensual Skin Enhancer ($48) from the Kevyn Aucoin makeup line is kinda vague in its intended purposes, we've found that it works best as a concealer. It's a little too thick for all-over coverage, so use your fingers or a sponge to dab it onto your red spots... [More]

Modern Stripe Bottle Vases

Cap-sleeve Ponte Dress

Just because Valentine's Day has passed doesn't mean you should start phoning in your date night looks. Victoria's Secret has all of the underthings you'll need but plenty of sexy "outerwear" too, like this Cap-sleeve Ponte Dress ($88).... [More]


Pistil Avery Dot and Bird Infinity Scarf

Asking us which half of this Pistil Avery Dot and Bird Infinity Scarf ($38) we like better is like making us decide which side of a Kit Kat we'd rather devour. The answer is both, obviously. And with this piece artfully twisted around our necks, there's no reason we can't... [More]


Too Legit To Quit Pillow Cover

We'll take one of these Too Legit To Quit Pillow Covers ($38) from Michelle Dwight Design as long as it's referring to the fact that we're too legit to quit burying into our down comforter cave and hitting the snooze button.... [More]


Laser Cut Velvet Legging

Will your legs be a little drafty when wearing these Laser Cut Velvet Leggings ($22)? Yup. Will you care? Not a chance. These tights look far too elegant to let a few goosebumps get in the way of showing them off.... [More]

We can't afford diamonds around our necks, never mind lavishing the damned things on our locks. Thank goodness some saint of fashion invented rhinestones! This Land by Land Short Stella Barrette ($35) features three bright, shiny faux gems that give you all the sparkle without the awkwardness of having to... [More]


Chia Seed Water 100 Cream

Apparently, chia seeds are good for more than adding a health boost to your daily smoothie. In the case of this Chia Seed Water 100 cream ($13) from The Face Shop, the seeds are added to the moisturizer once they're freshly germinated in water to give you optimal hydration results.... [More]


BITE Beauty Agave Lip Mask

Those lip balms and ChapStick not cutting the mustard in the face of dry, harsh winter weather? Your poor, abused mouth needs something stronger, like this BITE Beauty Agave Lip Mask ($26).

Timmy Chew Heel

Can't afford those gorgeous designer shoes? Embrace your lousy budget with these Timmy Chew heels ($62). They might not have quite the same cred with your label-conscious friends, but who cares when they look like they could chomp through those Pradas for breakfast.... [More]


Ceylon Cinnamon RibbonWick Candle

We love the thick fabric wick of this Ceylon Cinnamon RibbonWick candle ($20) - it makes for a wide, flickering flame you can basically use as a mini firepit over which to warm your hands. Just be extra careful not to set this candle - which sits in a shallow... [More]


Beaded Evening Bag

This Beaded Evening Bag ($220) couldn't get more simple, but it's been ages since we've seen anything like it. It makes other fancy purses seem like Arch Deluxes, pretending to get all uppity on themselves, while this back-to-basics piece is a no-nonsense Big Mac of nighttime accessorizing.... [More]


St. Tropez Gradual Tan Plus Firming Lotion

Build up a natural-looking tan as the days ease their way into warmer temps. After a week or so of using the St. Tropez Gradual Tan Plus Firming Lotion ($40), you'll be rocking a light tan* and supple skin. If you don't tell anyone that your color comes from a... [More]


Deer Beads Earrings

We admit it: we've gone bananas for antlers. We've put them on our mugs and our photo frames. Heck, we're even using them as bookshelves. So yeah, we think adding ears and antlers to a sparkling pink crystal makes these Deer Beads Earrings ($13) go from ordinary accessory quarry to... [More]


Ladybug Ponytail Holder

Ladybugs are adorable - until they're infesting your vinyl siding. Then they're like an eighth biblical plague clogging up your vacuum. This Ladybug Ponytail Holder ($6) thankfully reminds us of these insects in their more adorable, non-threatening moments.... [More]


Nevermore Witching Hour Spray

Think the witching hour ought to smell like eye of newt and toe of frog or - for those of us with infants - sour milk and inconsolable screaming? Turns out it can have a much nicer aroma. This Nevermore Witching Hour Spray ($24) scents your body, your room, or... [More]


The Flavor Thesaurus

Niki Segnit's book, The Flavor Thesaurus ($20), is not a cookbook. It's more like a cook guideline. She writes about intuition, flavor profiles, creative combinations, and exploration, and while there are a few recipes dotting the pages, the emphasis is on crafting meals that deviate from basic instructions. It's a... [More]


O'Keeffe's for Healthy Feet Cream

Not to bring up a kinda gross subject, but our feet have certainly seen better days. This ridiculously cold winter has left them looking a little rough around the edges. Before we make our next pedi appointment, we're going to have a few dates with our tub of O'Keeffe's for... [More]

Does This Make Us Look Cheap? February 14, 2014

Treat yourself! Does the perhaps overused adage ever ring any truer than it does on Valentine's Day, single or not? No matter what you think of the Hallmark holiday, perhaps we can interest you in some pink and red sale wares. Hanky Panky Signature Lace Bralette ($28 on sale) Elaine... [More]


Homemade With Love Oven Mitts

Our only beef with the darling Homemade With Love Oven Mitts ($15 for two) is that they might get more compliments from dinner guests than the Baked Alaska we spent all day preparing. We'll get over it, though. They are super cute!... [More]


Joules Indigo Coat

Keep dry in the spring drizzle by zipping on the Joules Indigo Coat ($220). We figure if anyone knows how to keep the dampness at bay, it's gonna be a London-based clothing company. The coat's classic style and top-notch quality make it a piece you can utilize for years to... [More]


Plush Puffs MugToppers

Artisan marshmallows seem to be all the rage right now, and we're kind of over it. Don't get us wrong, we'll still eat your bourbon-infused, triple-whipped, cocoa-coated marshmallow, but we've seen that before. In fact, we thought we'd seen all the innovations possible in the world of marshmallows, but we... [More]


Ask Me About My Cat Raglan Pullover

Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Paint Markers

We've all seen the tutorials on Pinterest. "Just draw on a white mug with a Sharpie and throw it in the oven," they promise us. But a run or two through the dishwasher reduces our art to a few dots and a blur. If you want your DIY mug designs... [More]


Talika Heated Eye Lash Curler

Sure, your lashes look fantastic...for the first ten minutes you're out of the house. After that, those perfect curls quickly collapse back to their depressingly flat natural state. With the Talika Heated Eye Lash Curler ($30), you'll get falsie-level curl that lasts all day long.... [More]

Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner

It's kinda ridiculous when you realize that it takes you longer to comb through your wet hair than it does to shower. Guess it's time to introduce a spray-on conditioner, like the Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner ($15), into your routine. Toss a few quick spritzes into your towel-dried locks... [More]

Will it make you want to scrub down your kitchen every day? Well, probably not. But this Common Good Kitchen Tote Set ($39) will make you feel even better about those special times when you do roll up your sleeves and degrease. It includes a full array of plant-based, earth-friendly... [More]


Standout Striped Pumps

This pair of Standout Striped Pumps ($30) from Forever 21, however chic, probably won't make it through more than a season or two. You'd better wear them while you can! We're thinking they'll look most excellent when worn with bright, colorblocked tunic dresses, or floral-printed skinny jeans, ooh, or even... [More]


Bee's Wrap

It's just a little piece of plastic wrap, right? Until it finds its way to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and chokes an innocent jellyfish. Stop at least one of your regular contributions to the decay of the world's oceans by using Bee's Wrap ($18): waxed, reusable fabric squares that... [More]


Cholet Hollow Vase

When we first glanced at this twee bunny figurine, we wouldn't have guessed that it could've gotten any cuter. When we realized it was actually a vase ($24) and tried putting some blooms in it, we were both pleased with our new decor option and wondering if we could do... [More]

Don't have to get dressed today? You might as well look fabulous while being cozy and comfy. The colorful Sleep'n Round Marrakech Pajama Leggings ($32, on sale) are extremely soft, and trust us, you will never want to take them off. So if you were one of those people who... [More]


Dear Old Love: Anonymous Notes to Former Crushes, Sweethearts, Husbands, Wives, & Ones That Got Away

Our default may be snark, but that doesn't mean we don't have hearts that feel all the feels. And oh boy does this book of love letters ($9), compiled by Andy Selsberg, tug at every single one of our heartstrings. Each letter is written by a different anonymous author to... [More]


Wired Waffles Cinnamon Waffles

We were dubious about the idea that Wired Waffles could create a suitable alternative to sipping down our caffeine via a few hot cups of coffee, but hey, we don't mind being proven wrong, especially when the Cinnamon Waffles ($30 per dozen) taste so delish. Each two-hundred-calorie waffle packs in... [More]


Kandy Strap Buckle Shoe

We've crossed the line from boots with cutouts to this strange hybrid that we don't even have a name for. Are they still booties or have they shifted into flats with embellished ankles? Are they bats? Or are they flooties? With those chunky ankle straps, quite frankly, the Kandy Strap... [More]

Sometimes a medicated lip balm or stick doesn't quite cut it; you're still waking each morning with cracked lips. Break out the good stuff: Osmia Organics's Honey-Myrrh Lip Repair ($22).

Zara Combination Quilted Jacket

A jacket that would feel as at home in the city as it would in the forest, the Zara Combination Quilted Jacket ($119) is a thing of versatile beauty. The quilted fabric and corduroy say boots and scarves 'round the fire pit, but its slim cut and slick hardware beg... [More]


Juliet & Company Runway Multi Strand Pearl Bracelet

The Juliet & Company Multi Strand Pearl Bracelet ($38) remixes (glass) pearls in a way we haven't seen before. We love a good pearl strand, but sometimes they're a little too formal for an outfit. This one feels a little more like us on an everyday basis - bold and... [More]


The Poisoner's Handbook

The Poisoner's Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York ($10) is one of those fascinating reads that proves real life can be just as dramatic and entertaining as fiction. With chapters highlighting different types of toxic chemicals, from chloroform to arsenic, author Deborah Blum... [More]


The Boob Top

When an item of clothing gets called a "boob top", you probably picture something that's low-cut and shows a lot of cleavage, et cetera. However, this Boob Top ($79), hand printed with an all-over pattern painted by Cassie McGettigan, is exactly what it's called: a top covered with boobs of... [More]

Yummy Thought Bubble Wall Decal

This Yummy Thought Bubble Wall Decal ($35) whimsically illustrates where our thoughts tend to... [More]


Loom Beaded Landscape Earrings

These gorgeous beaded earrings ($52) are woven on a handmade loom, and even before we read that they were inspired by Montana, their colors reminded us of the red-orange loamy landscape of the American West. The brass hardware is also a perfect fit for the palette.... [More]


Itty Bracer

You've got tiny boobs. You'll never need to worry about them succumbing to the wiles of gravity... or will you? They might unpleasantly surprise you if you insist on bouncing on the treadmill without properly supporting them. Use the Itty Bracer ($68) when you work out to keep those A-cups... [More]

Soludos x We Are Handsome Paradise Original

Intellitec Wash and Brush Timer

With a simple-to-understand system of buttons and lights, this Intellitec Wash and Brush Timer ($9) is a great way to remind small children, dirty roommates, or distracted spouses to spend the necessary time de-griming themselves when they visit the bathroom.... [More]

Pom Pom Shorts

Bring on the elastic waists and the craft store trim! We fully back these Pom Pom Shorts ($29) and their easy breezy playfulness. Picture them as swimsuit cover-ups: delightful! But really, you don't need to be on vacation to have a reason to rock these. Summer is a delightfully casual... [More]

GaugeNYC Zodiac Necklace

We've seen enough zodiac-inspired jewelry to last a lifetime - or so we thought. We practically have a different astrological accessory for every day of the year. But we guess now we'll be all set for leap years - we absolutely need to add one of GaugeNYC's Zodiac Necklaces ($200)... [More]


Victoria's Secret St. Barth's Tote

Still haven't cleaned the sand out of last year's beach bag? No worries, we won't judge. We will suggest you get a new one - a free one even. Just spend $50 or more at Victoria's Secret (order must include one swim item) and use code SUNSHINE to get your... [More]


Cheap Thrill: Kiss Care Love Lipbalms

We're chronic lip balm losers which also means we're chronic buyers of essence's Kiss Care Love Lipbalms ($2). The balms themselves are as awesomesauce as the tiny price tag. They keep our puckers smooth, hydrated, and coated in a subtle color (which is great because heaven only knows where we... [More]


Jewels Scalloped Shorts

As to how long the beaded jewels and sequins are going to last on the posterior of these Jewels Scalloped Shorts ($42), your guess is as good as ours (one day for the first bead to go missing - one month for all of it to be gone?) We love... [More]


Potted Plant Print

Having plants in your living space is apparently "good for you" but we wouldn't know, since we can't keep a plant alive for more than a month. But maybe this Potted Plant print ($175) by Amy Blackwell will provide a fraction of that emotional wellness?... [More]


Demeter Pizza Fragrance

A fragrance based on pizza sounds like kind of an awful idea, but the sweetness of tomato and herbaceous earthy oregano actually come together for a unique and somehow lovely aroma. Of course, we're hungry all the time, which is kind of the downside of Demeter Pizza ($6 - $40).... [More]


Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn

Sayonara, New Year's resolutions! Hello Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn ($25 for a one-gallon tin)! There is no possible way we can resist a handful (or ten) of this stuff. Our only recourse is to put the tin in the breakroom and lock ourselves in our offices until it's emptied. That'll... [More]


Elizabeth and James Astral Pendant Necklace

Something to wish upon or a guiding light? This Elizabeth and James piece ($95) is a good necklace to keep close to you at all times, in case you ever need to find your way home. (Your smartphone can help with that too, but that's less poetic).... [More]


Whiskey Tasting Set

Q: Do you really need to consult the rule card of the Whiskey Tasting Set ($50) from Teroforma in order to learn how to play? A: Only while drinking drams one through three, and then anything goes!... [More]


Benefit That Gal Primer

It takes a few extra seconds each morning to prime our faces with Benefit's That Gal Primer ($29), but the results have been fabulous. The pink-ish primer gives our skin a silky smooth feel and adds a bit of staying power to our foundation. We haven't yet heard appreciative whispers... [More]

Printcopia Canvas Prints

We miss printing photos - remember the joy of getting a roll of film back? Well, maybe some of you young ones don't, but we won't dwell on that scary reality. While most of our memory card is full of blurry cat photos and us testing how our makeup looks... [More]


Jardin Mystère Butterfly Cuff

This sparkly Alexis Bittar cuff ($345) is from the designer's Jardin de Mystère collection. It's a perfect name, since there's something a little off about this critter. As far as insects go, we're probably the most relaxed around butterflies, but this one's giving us the heebie jeebies. Harmless, flower-loving creature... [More]


Caldrea Tea Olive Lime Body Oil

We already love what Caldrea has done for cleaning the house. Heck, their products are so gorgeously scented, we look forward to scrubbing down our counters almost as much as we do a trip to Target. But now there's a blissfully unproductive way to experience their fragrances - by slathering... [More]


Diane von Furstenberg Pop Wrap Limited Edition Dollar Chainlink Canvas Wristlet

Why beat around the bush? Everybody knows exactly what you're carrying in that Diane von Furstenberg wristlet ($85): cash money. And how perfect is it that it's Andy Warhol's well-known dollar sign print - he of the Factory, which married mass production and high art - that graces this waxed... [More]


Pirate Captain Pillowcase

We like pirates... or at least, we like The Dread Pirate Roberts. As you wish, Cary-hottie-Elwes. Real pirates were probably less dashing and more hairy and unwashed. Plus, scurvy does a number on your teeth. We're not sure which type of buccaneer this Pirate Captain Pillowcase ($30) will inspire us... [More]


Julie Vos Anna Clutch

This Julie Vos Anna Clutch ($145) is basically a wonderfully shiny beaded taco that is the perfect size in which to carry around an actual edible taco. It would also be great for carrying around more quotidian items like your phone and your favorite lipstick.... [More]

It's not easy bein' green, nor is it easy trying to be a ray of sunlight all the time, either. Perhaps this Sam & Lavi floral lace dress ($59) is a solution. It's available in one color only: sunshine.... [More]

Earth tu Face Body Butter

Cardamom is one of our favorite spices, and so we were automatically excited for Earth tu Face's Body Butter ($42), which is made up the spice plus pure coconut oil and cinnamon. Earth tu Face's tagline is "put in your body what you would put in your mouth" and that's... [More]

Square Color Chip Box

We've always loved the color chips you can collect from the paint store, but we've also always just ended up with a stack of paper that we throw away after a couple months. Together, these Square Color Chip Boxes ($56 each) have a similar aesthetic appeal, except they're useful for... [More]


Lace-trim Mini Cheekster PINK Panties

We feel a little hypocritical telling you to wear matching bras and panties since at any given time ours are about as mismatched as you can get. But when Victoria's Secret is offering a free pair of panties with a bra purchase, you really have no excuse. Use code CUPID... [More]


DKNY Strapless Dress with Flare Skirt

For a second, let's ignore the fact that this new DKNY dress ($395) is rendered in an amazing bold orange color, and give our full attention to the awe-inspiring construction of that flare skirt. We're so used to seeing neoprene, the It Material of the moment, used in the construction... [More]


Bee Happy Smoking Slippers

There's not one stitch on these Bee Happy Smoking Slippers ($138) from C. Wonder that we don't absolutely adore. From the tips of their canvas toes to the metallic shine of their piping, they've got us buzzing. We probably won't be smoking any cigars while we wear them, but we... [More]


BackJoy Comfort Kneeler

Face it: unless you start dating Superman and convince him to spin the world around backwards a couple of rotations, time marches in only one depressing direction - the one that puts additional wear and tear on your joints. Reduce the impact with this BackJoy Comfort Kneeler ($20). It's made... [More]


"Blah Blah" Linen Tee

J.Crew has teamed up with Hugo Guinness, pal of Wes Anderson and illustrator to the stars, to give a voice to their super comfy linen tees ($50) - tees that are, apparently, very, very talkative.... [More]


R13 Zip Pull On Leather Leggings

At first glance, we dismissed these R13 Zip Pull On Leather Leggings ($468) as way too ambitious. Maybe we could have pulled them on if we greased ourselves up like pigs at a fair. Thankfully, they were designed with a set of sexy side zippers and a nice elastic waistband,... [More]


Cheap Thrill: NYX Sex Bomb Shadow Palette

Oh là là, the NYX Sex Bomb Shadow Palette ($8) is an excellent combination of colors to achieve a perfect pinup look. Watch a few tutorials, invest in a bright red lipstick (NYX sells this budget-friendy sultry shade), and get out there and make 'em do a double-take! What's a... [More]


Todd Thrasher's Artisan Cocktail Mixes

Problem: you've got a cabinet full of bottom-shelf booze you stocked up with back in your poor-as-dirt days. The stuff just doesn't hold up when combined with your usual cola or ginger ale, but you can't bring yourself to throw perfectly good alcohol (or even perfectly mediocre alcohol) down the... [More]


Yumi Forest Dress

We love clothes that tell a story, and this Yumi dress ($79) does it in spades. What kind of tale will unfold? The setting: a forest at night. The cast of characters: a doe and a fawn, an owl keeping watch, a disproportionately large bunny, a wolf, and some other... [More]

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II

As we get older, we start to realize that we must take excellent care of our skin. One of our favorite products is the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II ($62).

We can imagine a wide range of ladies rocking these kicks as a perfect and stylish... [More]


J.Crew Vintage Denim Jacket

Go classic this spring in a new J.Crew Vintage Denim Jacket ($128). The best thing about it is that it doesn't look new, and instead comes with that worn-in-back-of-the-closet-reliving-your-mom's-groovy-college-days feel. It may not be authentically vintage, but you're the only one who has to know that.... [More]


Bunny Chair

In what room would this extremely expensive Bunny Chair ($4000) fit in? It looks like it should do something other than just support your body - like it should be a control center unto itself, or at least give you a back massage. It's described as a "soft, inviting, and... [More]


Ceramic Megaphone Sound Amplifier

The technology is as old as the tuba - but it still works. This Ceramic Megaphone Sound Amplifier ($400) pumps up the volume on your iPhone or iPod the old-fashioned way. The wooden base helps optimize vibrations, getting you a louder, clearer sound, and we think it looks a heck... [More]

Pretty & Polished Tomboyish Nail Color

We firmly believe that you can never get too old to wear color-changing accessories, whether they be mood rings or nail polish shades. Lucky for us, Pretty & Polished agrees, which means we get to indulge our fingernails in a few coats of their Tomboyish nail color ($9). We love... [More]


Maje Rebel David Bowie T-Shirt

Is there any musician out there who's been plastered on tops from higher end fashion lines as much or more than David Bowie? We can't think of one. It's probably because the man is such a fashion icon himself - so much so that he's got his own touring exhibition,... [More]


Peanut Butter and a Spoon Print

Ain't that the truth! (Also, this print makes us feel a little better about having a special spoon we use for just peanut butter eatin'. Surely we're not the only ones!) Peanut Butter and a Spoon Print ($15) by Amanda Catherine Designs... [More]

MOLTON BROWN Eucalyptus Body Wash

Molton Brown Eucalyptus Body Wash

Everyone longs for a fresh spring scent when they shower! We're huge fans of the Molton Brown Eucalyptus Body Wash ($35). We'll just say it leaves our skin feeling refreshed and happy.... [More]


Hunter Tour Packable Rain Boots

You adore your Hunter boots, and we get it. You can traipse through mud, muck, snow, and rain in them and feel invincible. But after a while, they start to get a teeny bit cumbersome and heavy. Maybe it's time to make the switch to these Tour Packable Rain Boots... [More]


Scotch & Soda Coated Skinny Pants

Inject some drama into your everyday look with these Coated Skinny Pants ($59, on sale). The all-over paisley on a pair of tight pants might skew a little costume-y if executed in velvet and gold brocade, perhaps, but with the subtle print here, we think they're a great way to... [More]


Flappy Bird iPhone Case

Have you fallen prey to Flappy Bird? Hurry and jump on the I'd Tap That iPhone Case ($40) before its creator too decides to pull it for some sort of vague moral reason (and before this topic becomes totally irrelevant in the fast-paced world of web trends).... [More]
