Crave: Bath & Body Works Jelly Flip-Flops

While most are annoyed about the jelly shoe comeback, we have to admit we’re kind of thrilled.

These jelly (see, it just rolls right off the tongue!) sandals are only four bucks, and just looking at them puts a smile on our faces. Four bucks for a smile and some cute footwear? We’ll take that any day! [$4, Bath & Body Works] Keep reading »

(I went through the same routine with the iPhone, insisting that nothing could be more confusing and unnecessary than having a phone, iPod, and internet combined into one, but when I was given the device as a gift, I soon came to love, er, be obsessed with it.)
