Elisa Pendant Necklace

If a friend had said the word "drusy" last year, we would have thought that it was a mispronunciation of "drowsy," like they were falling asleep while in the middle of saying the word. This year, however, has seen an increase in jewelry featuring drusy (the coating of crystals on... [More]

Feline and Dine Dish

This cute little dish ($10) is technically meant to be a treat bowl for the cat, but we think it would make a cute catch-all for our nightstands. It's plastic, so it won't break if we accidentally knock it off when we're reaching for the alarm clock, and we're betting... [More]

As lifelong lovers of fried food, we've officially adopted the "if you can't tone it, tan it!" philosophy. While darker skin won't totally hide the fact that our idea of a diet is ordering one Nachos Bell Grande instead of two, it can help camouflage pesky cellulite. Our current tanner... [More]

Eyeko Curvy Brush Mascara

Every time we see a new mascara wand shape, we have to buy it. We'd like to say it's 100% out of selfless devotion to our dear readers, but if we're being honest, it's mostly because we're addicted to buying mascara. Either way, we're happy to report that this keratin-infused... [More]

Holy humidity, Batman! We've hit mid-summer and our hair is freaking out. Yours, too? While a handy hair tie bracelet is good to have on hand (ha, get it?) for when you need to toss up your locks into a messy bun, special occasions call for something a little more... [More]

J'adore Pink Blanket

No fair. Babies always get the cutest stuff. We'd give our left arm to have a J'adore Pink Blanket ($69) by Designed by Artists made to accommodate our height and size, but alas, the 30-in by 36-in velvety-soft cotton blanket is just big enough to swaddle a munchkin at bedtime.... [More]

Bluebird_Perfume_Small.jpg

Bluebird Eau De Parfum

Apparently we're stuck in 2011, because we're still kind of obsessed with birds. We thought this Bluebird perfume ($80) was great when we read that it smells of blood orange, orange blossom, and French vanilla, but we were even more excited to discover that each bottle comes packaged with a...

laser-cut-tote-sm.jpg

Laser-Cut Tote in Fanfare

Can you guess the designer behind this chic Laser-Cut Tote in Fanfare ($88)? Believe it or not, it's Vera Bradley, whose usual aesthetic is decidedly more... busy and colorful.

Umbra Sheer Physical Defense SPF 30

We've been hearing rumors that time in the sun without wearing sunscreen may actually be healthy for us, but... we're still uneasy with the idea of leaving the house without coverage. For now, it's probably a safe bet to keep a bottle handy. We're fans of Drunk Elephant's Umbra Sheer... [More]

Iittala Kartio Tumblers

So, we're adults now, and while we're still pretty proud of our cupboard full of pint glasses bought at brew fests and plastic mugs leftover from our childhoods, we should really own a collection of cups that won't be embarrassing to pull out in front of company. These Iittala Kartio... [More]

Elsie Headboard

We give up. Our DIY pallet headboard is not happening (at least, not without looking like an eighth grader's shop class project). If we want a jaw-dropping headboard, we're going to have to actually invest in something that was made by a pro. Topping our current list of favorites? This... [More]

Donald Robertson for Crewcuts Drip Tee

Gold & Cotton Pixie Wooden Toy Camera

It's all well and good to promote your toddler's artistic side, but let's be honest, the dozens of photos Junior takes (and then begs you to look at) aren't really all that interesting. Before you let your kids loose with a digital camera or phone, have them practice framing interesting... [More]

Wrinkle_Patch_Small.jpg

BIOBLISS Anti-Wrinkle Patch For Eyes 30-Day Kit

The price of most anti-wrinkle treatments alone is enough to give us some serious worry lines, which is why we like this 30-Day Anti-Wrinkle Patch Kit ($80). It works out to just $20 per treatment, and it's more effective than topical creams and lotions thanks to the use of microcurrents.... [More]

When we say that these Vintage Bow & Arrow Posts ($248) are vintage, we mean it. They're not vintage-inspired, nor are they repurposed from vintage materials. They're the real deal: a one-of-a-kind pair of 10k gold bow and arrow studs. We'd like to think that means they've had plenty of... [More]

isla-pullover-smll.jpg

Isla Pullover

The Isla Pullover ($88) looks as delicate as tissue paper, but it's much stronger, and much less wasteful.

Waikiki Beach Chair

When you're ready to step up your beach accessory game by leaps and bounds, look no further than this Waikiki Beach Chair ($149). It's made from gorgeous small batch North American White Oak and vibrant outdoor-ready fabric (woven in France, no less!) But you don't have to stop at the... [More]

Akron Rattan Flat

This season's fashions have included plenty of d'orsay flats in every fabric and color, but we haven't seen any quite like these Akron Rattan Flats ($108): they're made out of your wicker chair! Right after we saw these, we tried to craft our own pairs out of some Craigslist furniture... [More]

finkelsteins-plush-kitty-smll.jpg

Finkelstein's Center Plush Nipple Kitty Friend

It's a kitty cat stuffed animal with a twist - and no, the twist isn't that it's handmade. We wouldn't go so far as to say that this is an anatomically correct toy, but it's getting there! Hey, every cat's got nipples, even the dudes, so there's no use in... [More]

pink-anything-cardio-tank-s.jpg

Victoria's Secret PINK Boyfriend Tank

Sometimes we dread that 5am alarm that goes off for the gym. Well we don't actually hate it all that much because it does keep us looking lean and mean. How great would it be to walk into your gym class rocking the Victoria's Secret PINK Boyfriend Tank that screams... [More]

Doubtblush: ále by alessandra Acacia Tank

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. We'll admit it, we've all... [More]

Bobeau Back Inset Scoop Neck Tank

As is the case for so many tops these days, the back is the main feature on this Bobeau tank ($39). But before you write this off as another basic tank with some appliqués glued onto the back, consider that the material of this mint-colored tank (also available in white... [More]

city-toile-paper-sm.jpg

City Toile Wrapping Paper

valentino-bomber-jacket-sm.jpg

Point d'Espirit Bomber Jacket

Okay, so yes, we're thinking about fall when we browse pieces like this Point d'Espirit Bomber Jacket ($695) by RED Valentino, but it barely counts because we don't have the funds to strut down the street in the Swiss dot tulle and ruffled coat. We'll wait a few more weeks... [More]

DuWop Rotating Map Palette

We don't usually participate in National Talk Like a Pirate Day, but putting on makeup like a pirate is something we're totally on board with, thanks to this treasure map-themed eye and lip palette ($54).

We tend to avoid the blob of wasabi on our plates whenever we go out for sushi, but this hand soap ($22) might finally be a pain-free way for us to enjoy the spicy green paste. At least, we're assuming it's pain-free. If it does the same thing to our... [More]

Crochet Back Tank

Although the front of this shirt ($23) is also something to look at if you've got a very bright bra on (as it is very sheer), the back is obviously where it's at. At least, you'd hope that people would be more impressed by the hippie chic, Southwest-inspired colors and... [More]

Eleppi Staplers

We never say no to cutesy office supplies; the cuter they are, the less bored we are while we stare at our work. Case in point? These Italian Eleppi Staplers ($24 each). We're not sure what they're supposed to look like - whales? - but it doesn't matter because they... [More]

Sunshine_Spray_Small.jpg

Bamboo Beach Summer Sunshine Spray

Between our lily white skin and color treated hair, we rarely venture outside in the summer without some sort of wide-brimmed head covering.

Scientist Handbag

The label "steampunk" is thrown around a lot, but if the lady on this handbag ($75) doesn't exemplify the term, then we don't know what does. We find the handmade contraption on her head to be absolutely fascinating - it must allow the wearer to look through a magnifying glass... [More]

Armillary Votive Holder

Why would we buy this Armillary Votive Holder ($89)? Because it's attractive. Because it's geometric. Because the candles make it functional decor. One reason we wouldn't buy it is Wisteria's pledge that the iron circles protect the inner flames from "errant cats [and] children." Unless there's some invisible spherical force... [More]

NARS Duo Eyeshadow in All About Eve

Ceramic Unicorn Figurine

Do we even need a reason to tell you why you should get one of these Ceramic Unicorn Figurines ($158) by Jonathan Adler? It's a unicorn. It doesn't do anything; it just sits there looking unicorn-y (unicorn-ish?). But we bet it will add a bit of magic and charm to... [More]

Get a Room Tent

Bow-chick-a-bow-wow! There's no need to check whether this Get a Room Tent ($676) is rocking because the graphic on the side indicates that boots are indeed being knocked.

If you've ever found yourself thinking, "I guess Hamlet is pretty great. But it'd probably be even better if instead of it going how Billy Shakes wrote it, I got to decide how the story went," you're in luck! You decide what's rotten in the state of Denmark with To... [More]

World Market Seahorse Mugs

Honestly? This set of World Market Seahorse Mugs ($16 for 2) is kinda kitschy, right?

Wire Mesh Cubby

There's something delightfully second grade about installing cubbies in your home.

DevaCurl No-Poo Cleanser

While this zero-lather shampoo ($20) could benefit from a name that doesn't bring to mind bodily functions, we're willing to overlook it if it can make our hair healthier and bouncier.

Women's MUK LUKS Duo Strap Terra Turf Sandals

We have to admit, we're skeptical about the longevity of the Birkenstocks comeback - to us, they'll always read more "cashier at the natural supplement store" than "high fashion."
