Serrated_Sponge_Small.jpg

Serrated Makeup Sponge

When you see the word "serrated" in a product name, your first thought is not, "I want to rub that on my face." However, in the case of this makeup sponge ($5), it refers to the soft, jagged layers that help ensure streak-free coverage. To use, apply liquid foundation to... [More]

united-jelly-flats-sm.jpg

Low Res Jelly Flats

These Low Res Jelly Flats ($110) from United Nude are far more modern than the jellies we begged our parents for back in the '80s, but we still get a heavy dose of nostalgia when we wear them (along with sweaty, smelly feet and a weakened arch, but it's totally... [More]

Bio_Oil_Small.jpg

Bio-Oil Specialist Moisturizer

The phrase "breakthrough ingredient" is our shopping Kryptonite - if you were to look inside our closets, you'd find stacks of embarrassing "As Seen on TV" miracle products.

boyfriend-jeans-sm.jpg

The Dylan Boyfriend Jeans

We always have serious reservations when it comes to forking over a huge stash of cash for a pair of jeans. Designer does not always mean better (seriously, Gap skinnies have been a staple in our lives for a few years now!). With that said, the Dylan Boyfriend Jeans ($238)... [More]

lynild-blanket-in-purple-and-orange.jpg

Lynild Blanket in Purple and Orange

At first we balked at the price tag of the Lynild Blanket in Purple and Orange ($375), and then we read the story behind it. The blanket is crafted in a "historic hill-top mill in Norway" and utilizes wool from local sheep that "has naturally superior insulating qualities due to... [More]

fleur-bra-sm.jpg

Fleur Bra

When you're less endowed, trying on bras can be a frustrating task. Anything too padded, push-up-y, or fancy-shmancy can make you look like you're trying way too hard to fill out your lingerie.

Ball Dissolvable Labels

Do Epic Sh*t Banner Necklace

The Do Epic Sh*t Banner Necklace ($26) from Spiffing Jewelry is a great reminder to live each day to the fullest, but we noticed that it doesn't offer advice about what kindof epic sh*t you should be doing. We thought we'd give you a few jumping off points: 1. Find... [More]
