Check The Time Instantly

Instagram Parody
Instagram, Nickelbacked for your pleasure. Read More »

I’m pretty much convinced that the photos I take using the Instagram app on my iPhone are, like, high art, so I was stoked to learn about Instawatch, from accessories brand May28th, which turns your Instagram snaps into a watch face. After choosing your photo (you can also upload any non-Instagram photo you want) and selecting a band color, ordering your new wristwatch is just a couple more clicks away. The worst part of making my first Instawatch was choosing which photo to feature — again, my Instagram photos are just amazing – but I eventually settled on this Southern California sunset photo. The brilliant, dusky colors (caused my all that smog) and the palm tree silhouettes will remind me of where I grew up whenever I check the time. Rad. [$44, Instawatch.me]

Could there be anything more spring-y than speckled eggs? Easter may be over, but Illamasqua’s limited edition speckled nail polishes in tan, pink, green, violet or blue  mean you can have nails like robin’s eggs all year. Or malted milk balls. Or melted chocolate chip ice cream. You know, pretty stuff. Plus, Illamasqua’s polishes are made without sulfates, phthalates, and parabens. What’s not to love? [$16, Sephora]

I’ve recently become obsessed with the idea of learning how to read palms. I’m not sure I even believe in it, but I think it would be the best party trick ever. “Oh my, you have an unusually long life line” = the perfect antidote to awkward pauses and boring conversations. This cute little palm reading book should give me a nice overview for my new hobby, and for less than five bucks? Totally worth it. [$4.95, Powell's]

I usually require a number of beverages to get me going in the morning. I start off with three to four cups of coffee, pounded in succession. Once I’m thoroughly amped, I move on to coconut water to counteract the dehydrating effects of all the coffee. Now I can simplify my morning bevy routine with Zico Latte, a blend of premium coconut water and coffee. It contains natural caffeine, as much potassium as a banana and a blend of electrolytes for maximum hydration. It’s the optimal morning drink. [$25.99 12/pack, Amazon]

A Fragrance That’s Floral & Fancy Free!

As someone who suffers from migraine headaches, I have to be careful about what fragrances I choose to wear. To sweet and cloying, and a headache can pop up in minutes. Too floral, and my head starts pounding. For a long time, I’ve been searching for a fragrance that feels more grown up, but doesn’t make my head want to explode. Jour d’Hermès–yup, the same guys that make those scarves–if light, floral and mature, without being stuffy. From noted perfumier Jean-Claude Ellena, Jour d’Hermès is leafy and fresh, floral and fragrant. Explains perfume blogger Now Smell This, “the base is a pale woody musk finished in warm, sunny tones, slightly earthy, slightly vegetal.” Translation: It’s a pleasing, softly floral fragrance that won’t overwhelm you or your delicate nose.
