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 a family trip to Disneyland, complete with rickrack borders and trip artifacts like ticket stubs and soiled napkins. It was exhausting. I gave up my scrapbooking hobby, but I’m always looking for new, simple ways to document travels and experiences. For example, this cute travel stub diary lets you collect pictures and bits of travel ephemera, and just slide them into the clear plastic pages. Now that’s my kind of scrapbook.

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, Bulgarian rose, and hint of vanilla, topped off with exfoliating red jojoba bead  sprinkles. Yummy! If your sweet tooth still isn’t satiated, enjoy a real cupcake after you’ve toweled off. [$5, Cargoh via Outblush]

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]

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 sirens”) and dead rockstars (“One thing Kurt Cobain would have loved is trending on Twitter on his birthday”), to random life moments (“Almost passed out from trying to blow a 3″ long pube off a toilet seat so no one in this restaurant would think it was mine”), marriage (“Marriage: Waking up to the best news stories being emailed to you from your husband in the bathroom”) and motherhood (“How do you get a red wine stain off a baby?”). She counts Jimmy Kimmel, Roger Ebert, Jessica Alba and David Copperfield among her biggest fans, but, as her new memoir, Everything Is Perfect When You’re A Liar, makes clear, fame hasn’t gone to Oxford’s head.

Sweet Macaron Kisses

crave macaron lip gloss

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 opens to reveal an inside mirror and the pastel colors are precious. Just like real macarons. [$3.95, Neatoshop]

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 I went from having a pink-dipped mermaid mane to a Kurt Cobain-inspired messy bob. It was not cute (duh, I did it), and I was not happy. Cut to today, and much of what I lost on that tragic day has been restored. It’s almost as if it never happened — except it totally did, and I will never forget it. As a result, keeping my hair long, strong, and in great condition is one of my top priorities these days. Aside from washing less frequently and deep-conditioning twice weekly like a boss, the Turbie Twist makes it ridiculously easy for me to keep my growing hair undamaged and healthy while looking ridiculous at the same time. It protects it from the wear and tear that results from rough, unceremonious towel-drying, and cuts down significantly on the time it takes hair to air dry thanks to super-absorbent cotton. All you have to do is twist your soakin’ wet hair up tight and push the whole deal through the loop. Plus, it’s an “as seen on TV” product, so that’s how you know it’s legit! [$6.99, Sally Beauty]
