These soft, woven bangles remind us of the barrel stitch gimp bracelets we’d attempt to make in summer camp. We’d try to make one fit our wrist but would always run out of materials and get stuck with a stubby key chain. These leather bracelets are just as colorful, and they’re a major step up… READ MORE »

True story: We saw an adorable kid wearing these black zipper leggings and we had to know who made them. Her response: “They’re Hard Tail, and they make them in big people size, too.” Yes, we checked, and they do make them in “big people size.” Who knew fifth-graders had such a great sense of… READ MORE »

We’re obsessed with Margo Morrison’s jewelry line. She creates beautiful pieces out materials like abalone shell, peach moonstone, and labradorite. And we’re not alone in our love of Morrison’s unique pieces. Her fan following includes Whitney Port, Blake Lively and Julia Roberts. Not a bad roster. All of her jewelry — from dainty drop earrings… READ MORE »

We love how pretty these little chocolates look in a candy dish. Oh, come on, you must have a candy dish—they’re so grandma-chic. Unfortunately, ours is constantly empty because we can’t stop eating these Dark Chocolate Candy Cane Crunch bites by Godiva. They’re a bit spicy from the crushed peppermint topping, but the white chocolate… READ MORE »

It might be a bit of a splurge, but this new Nikon digital camera is so worth it. The Coolpix S60 (yes, the one in the commercials with Ashton) has a 3.5 inch touch panel LCD screen and you can use a handy little wand to write messages on the screen which display on the… READ MORE »

We love getting weekly manicures (especially at places that give mini neck massages while your nails are drying), but it’s kind of painful to fork over $15-ish dollars each week — that’s $780 a year! Which is why we’re newly obsessed with Creative Nail Design’s Stickey Base Coat. We tested it for about two months… READ MORE »

Remember those beaded safety pin bracelets from camp? Yes, the elastic ones with the multi-colored seed beads. We never, ever, thought safety pin jewelry would make a comeback. However, ever since we spotted this sparkly, gold safety pin necklace, we’ve been obsessed. It’s delicate and yet it adds an element of toughness to any outfit. READ MORE »

Sure, e-mail is convenient, but there is something to be said for a hand-written note. They’re classy, meaningful, and come on, who doesn’t like getting real mail?Just remember, the stationery you use sends a message.

There are just no words for how cute these little designer USB flash drives are. Well, actually, there are a ton, but we’ll refrain from gushing too much. The 55 different “characters” are beyond adorable, and you can even get dress yours in a mini fuzzy hoodie and attach it to your keychain. Think… READ MORE »

No matter what else you put on, you really want to wear that one piece of clothing. This gray jersey vest will become a favorite,… READ MORE »

I’m seriously addicted to these itty-bitty cookies. Each kind is named after friends of the company’s owner, Jon Chazen. “It’s a way to honor them,” he says. “I don’t name them after anyone I was intimate with—no ex-girlfriends, not even my wife—and she understands.” Jon worked at Barneys New York selling women’s shoes, but one… READ MORE »

These itty-bitty oxidized-silver bullet studs are perfectly feminine and edgy at the same time. It can be difficult to find an accessory that truly goes with everything, but these do the trick. They’ll balance out the frilliness of a girlie dress, and they’ll look just as good with an over-sized sweater, leggings, and bad ass… READ MORE »
