You know how sometimes you’re like, there’s not enough face happening on my face? What can I do to draw more attention to my face that won’t make me look like an escapee from Barnum & Bailey’s Clown School? Enter the magic of paper eyelashes! Created by Paperself, the delicate eyelashes come in a variety of iterations, including “deer and butterfly,” “peacock” and “under the sea” styles, and can be affixed with regular eyelash glue. And hey, no pancake makeup necessary. [$19, Nonesuchthings] Keep reading »
After many years of function, my record player bit the dust last week. In trying to find a replacement, I ran across this bad boy over at Urban Outfitters. The deal? You mount this sucker to the wall and it lets you play records vertically. In other words, it masquerades as art on an empty wall and lets you clear off valuable counterspace.

Dear Platform Shoes,
I have an issue that I need to resolve with you, but I want to do it in a sensitive and productive way so I’m going to try to use “I-statements.” Did you ever learn about “I-statements,” Platforms? According to my 7th grade health textbook, you can solve any problem by simply filling in the blanks to this sentence: “When you _______, I feel _______.” Example: “When you borrow my favorite sweater without asking, I feel sad.” Or maybe “When you talk about Justin Bieber, I feel old.”

Now that the “Harry Potter” kids no longer have a bazillion dollar franchise to support, Emma Watson has got some free time, and it seems she’s opted to pick up some work as a fashion designer. No longer content to merely serve as a model/muse for Burberry, Watson is said to be launching her own line, and has been taking cutting, sewing and design classes, presumably at Brown University’s sister school, RISD. According to an unnamed source, “Emma wants to challenge herself creatively. She’s obsessed with art at the moment She’s already designed a line of T-shirts and wants to expand her skills to create bespoke evening wear.” So she’ll join Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag and Avril Lavigne, among others, as model/actress/muse/designer. Phew. That’s a long resume. [ONTD] Keep reading »
It’s easy to get into an underwear rut, especially since cotton briefs are so comfortable. But every woman needs pretty lingerie in her life for the moments when she wants to feel special and throw practicality to the wind. Here’s the lingerie we’d like to wear around the boudoir.
Sure signs you’re in a responsible grownup’s apartment: there’s an actual bed frame, not just a mattress and a box spring; there’s the good, soft, thick kind of toilet paper in the bathroom; and there is a set of coasters on the coffee table. Everyone knows cup rings scream “stuck in adolescence.” Project the air of maturity we know you possess to all future house guests with this chic and earthy set of clay and glass coasters by potter Kelly Brooks. Pretty and functional, hooray!
