Through The Looking Glass

Our love of J. Crew is outstandingly well-documented; we’re crazy about everything the American brand offers, from perfectly cut outerwear and silk blouses to their trademark glossy patent leather pumps. They do trends just right, touching upon what’s hot at the moment without giving their wares a seasonal expiration date… or an insane price tag. Enter this gorgeous glass necklace: its circular stones are simple, but the Venus flytrap-inspired setting makes a unique, stand-out statement for all seasons. For an investment piece without the investment price, look no further. [$85, J. Crew]

Seriously, how lovely is this candle? Not only is it made of hand-poured soy wax, it’s infused with a subtle tea rose scent. Another reason to love it? Once it’s all used up, you can wash out the holder and voila: you’ve got a beautiful pink Moroccan print glass, perfect for sipping cocktails or displaying a few flowers. [$36, Market Street Candles]

Show your pride for your alma mater. After four years at Internet University you may have no foreseeable job prospects, but that’s OK, in fact it’s no different than if you had attended one of the Ivy Leagues. Be proud that you know how to use Tumblr, Twitter, HootSuite, Instagram, Spotify, etcetera like a mofo. That you know how to search for cute animal video and Google images with your eyes closed. That you have an in-depth understanding of hashtags and memes and search engine optimization. That you have a personal blog. Good for you!  You worked hard at mastering the Internet. You deserve a T-shirt. [$30, Etsy]

Macaroons That Make Everything Better

When a major natural disaster strikes, you start thinking about what’s important to you. As my boyfriend braved the wind and rain to go out and gather supplies for us, I had just one request — no, not water, or flash lights or batteries. I just really needed some Emmy’s Organics Dark Cacao macaroons, please. Vegan, raw and gluten-free, Emmy’s makes macaroons in seven signature flavors, including Lemon Ginger, Chai Spice, Vanilla Coconut and Chocolate Chili. All of them are yummy, and relatively not-so-bad for you. Plus, they’re the perfect snack for stormy weather. Ply me with sweet, delicious coconut-y macaroons, and I can get through anything. [$2.95 for a bag of three, Emmy's Organics]

Thank Goodness For Pretty Thank You Cards

Finding the motivation to send a proper thank you note is almost impossible–unless I have a stack of beautiful thank you notes sitting on my desk, in which case I’m so excited to use them that I start thanking everyone for everything. Thank you, 5th grade teacher, for believing in me! Thank you, best friend, for being my best friend! And so on and so forth. Now I want to buy a pack of these gorgeous flowery postcards, and send one to the artist to thank her for designing them. [$10 for 10 cards, Rifle Paper Co.]

I admit it, sometimes I still like to play with my food like a five-year-old. And there’s nothing wrong with that. [$7.95, New Egg]

It’s a soapdish! It’s a tub stopper! It’s … both! How cute is this rowboat-shaped soapdish, which is attached to a tub stopper on a chain? You’ll always have your soap nearby when you’re reading in the bath and look hella cute doing it, too. Now, if this darling little boat floats on top of the bath, too, that would just be the bees knees. Someone buy one and report back, please? [$15.99, ModCloth]

I just ran out of the perfume I’d grown attached to — but thankfully this Fresh Hesperides Grapefruit Eau de Parfum arrived in my postal box. Combining top notes of mandarin, Italian lemon, and grapefruit, this perfume is the scented equivalent of a fresh glass of juice. Which, I know, kind of sounds revolting (a juice bath? No thanks). The middle and bottom notes of bergamot and musk balance out the citrus, though, creating a crisp — and yes, fresh — scent. [$38, Fresh]

For all my love of all the makeup, I’m undeniably fickle. I buy and try everything, only to eventually cast it all aside because it isn’t quite perfect. This is especially true when it comes to my lip color ― not only do I need the hottest, brightest orange-leaning red this side of the sun, I need it to be long-lasting (as in, all day), easy to use on the go, and as shine-free as possible without transmogrifying my lips into the Gobi Desert, whether it’s the middle of July or the end of December. (Oh, and pretty packaging never hurts.) My ruthless criteria systematically slays all inferior formulas until only one remains: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. A creamy, vividly pigmented lipstick in the form of a chubby pencil, this velvety matte glides on easy, and miraculously manages to look seamlessly put-together even when smeared on with abandon (like, say, on a moving train). I’m partial to Red Square (shown), but you can take your pick of 17 shades, from the palest nude to deep, dark aubergine. Fair warning: you might want to pick up extras, you know, one for every bag. It’s that good. [$24, NARS Cosmetics]

Undies Expert: Bras!
Help me find a bra for post-pregnancy boobs! Read More »

A few weeks ago, I bought a gorgeous dress to wear to a wedding, but had a minor panic attack when I realized that, because I couldn’t wear a bra with it, I’d be accessorizing with major nip action. Not exactly appropriate for the occasion, you know? I can’t stand a strapless bra; every one I’ve ever tried has either been horribly uncomfortable or refused to stay up properly. So I sucked it up and decided to conquer my fear of stick-on bras. A shop girl recommended the seamless NuBra, assuring me it was comfortable and would never be detected under my slinky dress. And she was right! The NuBra stayed on super securely all night and made my boobs look better than they would have had I gone bra-less. Sure, it looks a little silly and would have required some explanation had I gotten lucky that night (I didn’t), but whatever. Oh, and best of all, it’s reusable. Just keep it in its handy storage container so the sticky side doesn’t dry out and carefully hand wash when necessary. The NuBra comes in cup sizes A-D and a few different shades of “nude” to match all skin tones. Totally tit-tastic! [$58, Macy's]
