Colorful Earrings Brighten Up Everything

October’s almost over, which means all of that lovely summer color has drained from my face and I’m back to my normal fall/winter skintone of “transluscent pallor.” This is the time of year when I love to wear big, colorful earrings to brighten up my face. These fabulous crimson chandeliers should do the trick. [$60, Neiman Marcus]

A Mensch For Every Month

It’s wall calendar season! I don’t care if you keep your schedule on your iPhone. I do, too. But I still firmly believe in wall calendars. You need something fun to look at while you work. Something inspiring. For 2012, I had Flower Spirits in my cubicle. It was lovely and stuff, but in 2013, I’m looking for something with … more men in it. I doubt there will be any rock-hard abs, or toned tushies to look at, but the sweet punims of the dudes in the Nice Jewish Guys calendar will remind me that mensches still exist in the world.  [$15.95, Modern Tribe via Outblush]

If there’s one thing we love more than boys, it’s books. So making sure our two life passions peacefully co-exist is hella important.

Whether you’re well-read or just looking for someone to hop in bed with, Judging needs to be on your shelf immediately. [$10.19, Amazon]

Solve Chapped Lips Like A Surf Pro

Cookie Lip Balm
ZOMG, there is Girl Scout Cookie-flavored lip balm! Read More »

I tried surfing once. It didn’t end so well — I lost the surf board and almost slammed up against a bunch of rocks. Still, there’s something totally dreamy about surf culture — and especially surfer girls, who are totally badass, and strong and basically live in the ocean. And that’s why I’m really excited about Sun Bum’s line of lip balms. Packed with SPF 30 sunscreen, they protect as well as soothe, and come in a crazy delicious array of flavors, including mango, pink guava, pomegranate, coconut, key lime and their original banana (I’ve got banana on right now, and it’s making me hooooongry). Try it — it’s certainly a lot easier than getting on a surfboard. [$3.99, Sun Bum]

A Starry Autumn Night Has Never Smelled So Good

Leave it to LUSH to formulate the perfect antidote for those autumn-onset blues with a sweet starry-night-in-a-bottle ― and to make it a bittersweet limited edition, so that we’ll have to ration it all spring and summer long. Twilight Shower Gel, the sudsy incarnation of the brand’s beloved Twilight Bath Bomb, only comes around once a year, but it’s impossible not to get attached to the warm, slightly herbal tonka bean and lavender fragrance. With a twinkling dark purple gel formula that would make Edward Cullen jealous (don’t worry, the iridescence washes right off), you might not want to leave the bath until May. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. [$18.95 for 8.8 fl. oz., LUSH]

A Terrific Way To Wear Your Terrarium

Not only is this colorful little terrarium pendant freakin’ adorable, it’s much less messy than stringing an actual terrarium around your neck (trust me, running to the bus while wearing a jar full of a dirt never ends well). [$44, Yellow Owl Workshop]

A Tumbler Worthy Of Your Spooky Good Cocktails

Bottoms up! Bwahahahaha! [$13/set, Fab]

Sure, a vegan diet is healthy, but it’s pretty much murder on your sweet tooth. And if you’ve got one the way I do, you’re always craving a little something sweet at the end of a meal. Enter the ladies at Vegan Divas, a really wonderful low-calorie, kosher and organic dessert  line based in NYC. Created by the wife of famed pastry chef Francois Payard, Vegan Divas’ cookies, cakes and pies don’t taste vegan at all. That’s because Vegan Divas’ bakers replace all the bad dairy, eggs and oils with low-fat and delicious maple syrup and coconut oil. We had a shipment of them sent to the office last week, and even the non-vegan junk food eaters agreed — Vegan Divas is delicious. And the best part? They ship anywhere! [prices vary, Vegan Divas]

Turn Around, Bright Eyes

Some of us were born with those wonderful genes which keep us looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, even on one hour of sleep. I am not one of those people. The worst compliment any guy ever gave me was that he “loved the dark circles under my eyes.” I wanted to crawl in a hole and die. If I miss even five minutes of sleep, shed one tear, or have a touch of congestion I get monster bags under my eyes. I can’t help it! It’s genetic. I’ve tried to combat this with every kind of expensive lotion or potion on the market.

Next up is Goldie’s Bright Eyes bar, which boasts of being a miracle product. Made from all-natural ingredients like carrot juice and aloe, this facial soap protects against wrinkles, smooths uneven skin and soothes any skin irritation. I normally hate anything that’s referred to as a miracle product (what’s the catch?), but in this case, it might be true. For under $10, I’m certainly willing to find out.

My little tea time routine involves brewing some vanilla chai, putting on some chill music, eating a square (or three) of dark chocolate, and flipping through a fashion magazine. It’s totally relaxing, but you know what’s missing? Mr. T glaring at me from the side of my teapot. Yep, that would really take the whole thing to the next level. [$18, Etsy]
