Combine the words “amethyst crystals” and “jewelry,” and we can already smell the burning sage wafting through the air. Not so with the goodies from Stone & Honey. We’re seriously crushing on the indie design studio’s crystal point rings, which feature rectangular points of natural stones like amethyst, titanium, black quartz, and aqua quartz. Playing off the gem’s natural shape and using a simple silver rivet ring, the design is about as raw and straightforward as you can get. Unlike those healing crystals you bought in the Wicca shop back in 2002.
You know those days in the office when the air conditioning is set to sub-zero and you wish you could spin yourself a cozy cocoon? Well, instead of kicking yourself for forgetting your cardigan again, keep this Leopard Bow Jersey Blazer at your desk. Not only can this basic black blazer go from business luncheon to dinner date, but it is also perfect for layering over summer tank tops and sweaters in the fall.
We love a cute camera as much as the next girl, but we’re particularly infatuated with cameras that are as functional as they are adorable. Cue Lomography’s Fisheye 2 Camera. It’s tiny and cute as hell, but also packs the punch of multiple and longtime exposure buttons, extra flash, and a fish-eye viewfinder. Bonus points to anyone who can use the fish-eye subtly enough to convince a friend that, yes, her nose does look enormous in that shot.
How do you express the bond you feel with your BFF? Give her the adult version of a friendship bracelet. You each get one of these gold-plated Gorjana friendship bracelets with dangling hearts to show your mutual love. But if you’re not in a giving mood, then wear ‘em both until you find a worthy friend.
Working out is a necessary part of life, and whether you’re a marathon runner or an elliptical pro, one fact remains the same: You can’t exercise in the nude. We’re always interested in cute, affordable workout clothes because, though we don’t want to spend money on stuff we’re just going to sweat in, it’s important to be happy with what we’re wearing. Now, thanks to Forever 21′s new line of workout paraphernalia, we can stock up on everything from socks to cute sports bras and spend the money we save on regular clothes that show off our hard work.
A BFF necklace is a nice token of affection, but here’s a new way to show your best bud how much she’s really worth: Rebecca Minkoff’s Best Friends Pouches, perfect to use as simple wallets or for storing loose change. The inspiration for these cute leather accessories apparently came from someone who told the designer, “Friendship is like money, easier made than kept.” A sweet sentiment to keep in mind … each time you reach for your credit card.
