Check The Time Instantly

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…

Her Nails Were Like Robin’s Eggs

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…

I See A Fun Party Trick In My Future

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…

Hydrate While You Caffeinate

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…

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 A Travel Scrapbook Without The Whole Scrapbooking Part

Approximately 10 years ago, my mom and I decided were going to become scrapbookers, so we went to the scrapbooking store and bought all the special paper and scissors and decorative stickers that you have to buy in order to join the scrapbooking lifestyle. I spent a week creating two painfully detailed scrapbook pages documenting…

Satisfy Your Bath Time Cravings

If eating eating cupcakes in the bath Lena Dunham style isn’t quite your thing (too much risk of cupcake sogginess!), you may want to consider this this Pink Pepperberry Bath Fizzie instead. Just drop it into the tub under running water and let it dissolve into a warm treat of black pepper, orchid, wildberries, Bulgaria…

See The World Through Rose-Embellished Glasses

Sunglasses are, by far, my favorite accessory. I’m constantly buying new pairs and saying dumb things like, “‘Shades’ is my middle name!” In reality, my middle name is Rose, so obviously I need these rose-embellished cat eye shades. [$14, Nordstrom]…

The Funniest Memoir You’ll Read This Year

Chances are, if you spend any time on Twitter, you know who Kelly Oxford is. The Canadian-born mom of three has amassed over 450,000 followers thanks to her hilarious and dry-witted one liners about everything from notorious celebrities like Chris Brown (“Leave it to fucking Chris Brown to make a dance song out of police…

Sweet Macaron Kisses

Winona inspired snarling and gnashing of teeth at The Frisky offices when she announced that her boyfriend knows how to make macarons. She can have the delightful French cookies any time she wants. That bitch! But she’ll be the one green with envy once she sees my cute new macaron lip gloss. The pot ope…

Turbie Twist Takes The Elbow Grease Out Of Towel-Drying

Let’s get this out of the way: three years ago, almost to the day, I lopped off much of my midback-length hair in an ill-fated incident best summarized as Something That Should Not Have Happened. In my defense, everyone gets scissors-happy once in a while… but this was more along the lines of scissors-crazy, and…

Beware The Attack Cat

Beware the angry beast! He crouches, ready to pound on bare ankles and dangly shoelaces. Just, you know, not when he’s busy wedged inside a Soap.com box, licking his bum. Warn your guests about Fluffy’s killer impulses with this goofy orange rug, which is perfect as a welcome mat. Seriously, he’s a totally vicious attack…

Your Face Deserves A Tea Break

My face tends to get really shiny, especially in the warmer months. Not in the cute and dewey way, more in the oil slick kind of way. Instead of layering on pressed powder, I prefer to blot it off like a proper lady. These 100 percent natural linen, preservative-free Boscia Fresh Blotting Linens with gree…

Because You Never Know When You’ll Need A Drink

I came across this gorgeous little flask while browsing Pinterest the other night, and like many Pinterest postings, it instantly made me feel like my life was meaningless and empty without it. How have I gone this long without owning a chic stainless steel flask with a cheeky engraving on it? What is wrong with…

The Only Sloth Book You Need

Grumpy Cat is an intergalactic superstar for his sour little pussycat face. But some of us prefer animals with a bit of whimsy and happiness, like …  sloths! In her coffee table book, A Little Book Of Sloth, author Lucy Cooke pens an ode to the humble sloth, complete with pictures taken at a sloth sanctuary…

Kill Your Hanger With Kindness

Because of my hanger issues (that wasn’t a typo — I get irrationally angry when I’m hungry), I must carry snacks with me at all times. But finding the perfect, portable snack can be difficult. Must be healthy-ish. Must not get squished in purse. Must not require refrigeration. Must keep me full so I don’t…

Infuse Your Water With Some Fresh Spring Flavors

I love infusing my water with different flavors–lemon, lime, mint, strawberry, cucumber, oh my!–but I don’t like the little bits of soggy fruit and leaves that end up floating around in my glass. This glass flavor-infuser water bottle allows you to put your favorite fruits in their own little chamber, which gives you all of…

Pinch This Lobster Scarf

Whether you’re headed to Red Lobster or the Bush compound in Kennebunkport, you should dress the part. And what better way to declare your love for crustaceans than wearing them? And no, I’m not talking about Philip Treacy lobster hat: I mean this cotton scarf featuring navy blue stripes and a lobster print! It look…

Face Wipes For Your Inner Islander

Lazy ladies know what’s up: when it comes to tumbling home after a late night (or collapsing in front of the TV with a glass of wine, whatever floats your boat), face wipes are the only way to go. Why fuss with soap and water when you can just slap a cleansing wipe on your…
