Dior Vernis Trianon Edition Nail Enamel

Do you remember the last time pastels weren't in for spring? We didn't think so. So we're saying it's a safe bet to invest in a bottle of Dior Vernis Trianon Edition Nail Enamel ($24 each), available in perennially popular pastels peach and mint - excuse us, Blossom and Pampille.... [More]

Walking around smelling like booze isn't usually a good thing, but we're willing to make an exception for the classiest drink around: the gin & tonic. Demeter's Gin & Tonic Fragrance Spray ($10) offers a distinct aroma of sweet juniper with a splash of citrus. It's also a subtle hint... [More]

The Landscape of Growing Up Print

We don't know about you, but we certainly spent plenty of time in the Vast Forest of I Can't Believe We're Not Dead, learned a few things at Camp Should've-Kept-My-Mouth-Shut, and really ought to frequent the Can't Please Everybody Ranch more often! The Landscape of Growing Up Print ($32) by... [More]

Doubtblush: JOA Front Tie Skirt

You may have noticed that we're hardly perpetual rays of sunshine around here, but even so, we seem to spend a lot of our time enthusing about one gewgaw or another. Doubtblush exists to make it clear that we do not, in fact, like everything. It's hard to believe, but... [More]

rock-monsters-sml.jpg

Andi Teran Rock Monsters Prints

Seeing faces in inanimate objects is basic human nature. Anthropomorphism is an under-acknowledged part of our daily lives, so much so that it sometimes gets distracting and somebody starts a blog about it so all people seeing faces in places don't feel so alone. Andi Teran is part of that... [More]

striped-placemats-sm.jpg

Striped Placemats

After such a dreary winter season, it would seem that anything saturated with color is striking our fancy. We scored big with these Striped Placemats ($4, on sale), designed by Sandy Chilewich.

chanel-case-sm.jpg

Faux Chanel iPhone Case

The Faux Chanel iPhone Case ($10) tells onlookers that you're a total fashion aficionado, especially if your nails match your case. And yes, okay. We know that this is a total knockoff product, but it's better than a knockoff Chanel mani, no?... [More]

astrotea4.jpg

Astronaut Tea for Two Set

Tang may be the drink of choice in outer space, but even cosmonauts enjoy a spot of tea from time to time. The Astronaut Tea for Two Set ($48) has a cute design, and we like that both the head and helmet double as cups to drink the tea from.... [More]

bicycle-taxidermy-smll.jpg

Bicycle Taxidermy

More into biking than hunting as recreation? Yeah, us too. So although we appreciate the gorgeous antlers and horns of hoofed creatures, we like them more in their original context than mounted on a piece of wood. We also, however, like to take time to appreciate the form of the... [More]

helmet4.jpg

Rainbow Stripe Nutcase Bike Helmet

We know how important it is to wear a helmet while bicycling, but would it kill helmet companies to make something a little less clunky and a little more attractive? The Rainbow Stripe Nutcase Bike Helmet ($45) is the stylish alternative we've been waiting for. The color makes it seem... [More]

Like polka dots, stars never go out of fashion - at least we don't think so! We're coveting AHeirloom's Engraved Wood Cutting Board ($48-55) with its spattering of stars on the top. The cutting surface on the underside is free from engraving so we don't have to leave behind knife... [More]

lana-dress-smll.jpg

Lana Dress

We're getting a major Jetsons vibe from this Lana Dress ($308) from Rosario. And although there's a hint of Judy and Jane, we're mostly thinking of Elroy's orbit hat and backpack.

Cold Picnic Cenotes Studs

Don't be fooled by these Cenotes Studs ($75) that we got, they just look like geodes from the rock. (That's what J. Lo would sing if she was into geology instead of bling.) They don't come from the earth but from the Brooklyn-based Cold Picnic studio, where Phoebe Sung and... [More]

Anfa Envelope Clutch in Pumpkin

We can't even name drop any of the fanciest country clubs in, say, the Hamptons, because we've never been (and never expect to go), but according to our serious research (Gossip Girl and Revenge), we bet you'd fit right in if you waltzed through the doors with the Anfa Envelope... [More]

Deborah Lippmann Spring Reveries

It's time for opening the windows, getting out the duster, and doing a little bit of spring cleaning.

Joie Hudette Dress

Although our least favorite part of summer picnics and lounging in parks is the feeling of bugs walking around on our skin, we can't help but love the Joie Hudette Dress ($348), despite its abundance of bees. It's also got plenty of flowers, and like it or not, they're what... [More]

jgarth4.jpg

Deep Thoughts from a Hollywood Blonde

Contrary to its title, we hope that Jennie Garth's Deep Thoughts from a Hollywood Blonde ($23) contains very little depth. Like, we're not exactly reading a memoir by a former 90210 star with the expectation of award-winning literature. Thankfully, reviewers have indicated that the book is full of gossip, like... [More]

The Inspired Baker Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies

When the Inspired Baker offered to send us some cookie samples, it didn't take any convincing. Although we don't always eat vegan and gluten-free, we're certainly not opposed to introducing more of those things into our diet, particularly when they're in the form of a dessert. We sure tore through... [More]

I'm Not Here to Make Friends Tank

We doubt we'll ever get cast on reality television, at least not until The Real Cat Ladies of Los Angeles County becomes a show, but if it ever were to happen, we'd definitely be sure to shout the reality TV cliche, "I'm not here to make friends!" as many times... [More]

pineapple-throw-sm.jpg

The Kumarte Throw

So, wait. Is this Kumarte Throw ($120) from Elephant Landing a light linen blanket or a tablecloth? We guess it can be whatever you'd like it to be. It's both big enough to toss 'round your shoulders on a cool summer night, and wide enough to hang off the sides... [More]

Orphan Black: Season 1

Blame Star Wars for that awful Attack of the Clones nonsense, because when we first heard that Orphan Black is a sci-fi series about clones, we wanted nothing to do with it. A persistent friend lent us Orphan Black: Season 1 on Blu-ray ($35), however, and now we're hooked. This... [More]

Seventeen Hip Pack

Despite the fact that designers keep flooding the market with fanny packs, we're still not sure we can get on board with the "trend."

Cone Counter Stool

Lactose intolerant? Then you better find another chair. The Cone Counter Stool ($750) is fun seating for dairy lovers. We generally prefer a waffle cone to those kiddie cones that taste like cardboard, but we're a fan of any kind of ice cream that you can sit on without having... [More]

French Bull Floral Bowls

Sure, we got these French Bull Floral Bowls ($24 for four) because the patterns add a much needed pop of color to our everyday dishes. That's what we're telling everyone, anyway.

unas-ring-smll.jpg

Unas Ring

Unas was a pharaoh of ancient Egypt, and, according to legend*, his pyramid was the smallest one built during the Old Kingdom. Sad for ol' Unas, perhaps, but good for us, because that means that his pyramid was small enough to fit on this handcrafted silver and gold ring ($65).... [More]

Reed Wilson Design Holla Doormat

"Holla!" may be as played out a greeting as "Sup?" or "What's happenin'?", but we can't resist the Reed Wilson Design Holla Doormat ($50). We'll just spray paint a mustache and a bird on it, to make sure we're extra dated.... [More]

Memphis Fringe Cross-Body

Knowing our tendency to live life in slightly less-than-graceful movements, wearing this Memphis Fringe bag ($271) will probably mean getting stuck in a lot of doors as they close behind us.

Pewter Regency Headboard

If we had this Pewter Regency Headboard ($2500), we'd be sorely tempted to play Lady of the Manor, sitting up in bed in a lace bed jacket each morning, summoning our roommates with a filigreed bell and demanding (in our best Lady Violet voice) that they bring us breakfast on... [More]

California Collection by McConnell's Fine Ice Creams
