The Scent Of Despair

I wouldn't mind smelling like I sat around in a Paris cafe chain smoking, drinking coffee and wine and writing the most important novel of the century. If only the most brilliant writers knew their work was great. Not a chance. The best writers spend most of the day wallowing in self-loathing. Dead Writers Perfume…

The Perfect Hot Pink Sandals For Spring

I came across these Sofft sandals while rounding up links for the comfortable heel guide, and I was instantly smitten by their ridiculously bright pink straps and 70s-style wood platform. I want to wear them with my favorite black jersey dress and big vintage sunglasses to wander around the farmer's market and feel…

Get Spicy In The Shower

I love a good shower gel, but man, there is nothing more annoying than stepping out of the shower smelling like a friggin' perfume store. A little bit of fragrance is great, but some gels and washes are so treacly sweet that they almost make me nauseous. Enter Sachajuan's Spicy Citrus shower gel and body…

Lather Up And Help Educate Women In Africa

As you may or may not already know, March 8th marks 102 years of International Women's Day. The official United Nations theme for 2013 is "A Promise is a Promise: Time for Action to End Violence Against Women," so you better believe we'll be drinking to that. There are a number of ways to get…

All Other Tote Bags Can Get Lost

We know you've never needed to pull up Google Maps on your phone, either, right? You always know where you're going, too? Thought so! But just in case you need to give directions to, say, confused tourists, CityFabric screens the maps of 16 American cities on tote bags, tees and prints.  We fancy the $22…

Sleep With Your Favorite Subject

"I took all of the notes from the entire semester and wrote them on my pillowcase so I could study the information for 1 to 2 minutes every night and when I fell asleep from potential exhaustion I’d have a nice comfy place to rest my head," said Barry Weinstein, creator of Pillowcase Studies. Weinstein'…

This British Beauty Brand Is One To Watch

As The Frisky's resident beauty hoarder, I try a lot of different skincare products. Not that I'm complaining (at all, whatsoever): skincare is kind of my thing, and I will put literally anything on my face — provided I've given the ingredients a once-over to make sure I approve, of course. Very rarely, however, doe…

Paris T-Shirt, Je T’Aime

I'm one of those totally undiscerning, overeager Francophiles who will gladly buy anything that even remotely reminds me of Paris, from a mug that says "Oui!" to a giant cocktail ring in the shape of a macaron (I know, I'm the worst). This t-shirt, with a black and white screen-printed design of the Eiffel Tower, fulfills my…

How To Fake It ‘Til You Make It

Every woman that's looking to conquer the world knows you've got to fake it until you make it. And no, we're not talking about fake hair, fake nails, or fake titties — we mean knowing how to fake like you've got your life totally under control. Whether it's how to fake a clean bathroom for…

Lotion For The Lazy Girl

Now you really have no excuse not to lotion up after the shower. Tired or lazy or in a rush? It doesn't matter. Vaseline's Spray & Go Moisturizer makes the lotioning process foolproof. Just aim and spray. This is such great news for that spot on the middle of my back that I can't reach.

Time To Grow Up

Owning a watch -- a sophisticated one -- is one of the rites of passage into womanhood that passed me by. I had a number of neon and patterned Swatches in the '80s, but I forgot to update. I love the way a chic watch can pull an outfit together, give you an air of…

The Secret To A Perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich

It's getting to be that time in February where I'm like, "Really, Winter? You're still here?!" Pretty much the only thing getting me through these dreary gray days are the soups and amazing grilled cheese sandwiches my cheesemonger/boyfriend has been making for dinner. The other night he used this Kerrygold aged Irish cheddar o…

Two Necessary Additions To Your Crazy Cults Bookshelf

If you're a friend of mine and have tried to make plans with me the last few weeks, you've likely failed, because i have been very busy planning my infiltration into the upper echelon of Scientology. And by "planning" I mean reading Going Clear by Lawrence Wright and Beyond Belief by Jenna Miscavige Hill, two new fascinating and in-depth…

It’s About Time To Buy A Really Fabulous Watch

I've been looking for a chunky, menswear-inspired watch for awhile now, and this one, with a black tuxedo stripe and ring of rhinestones, might be The One. I'll wear it with a slouchy black V-neck sweater and jeans, and be fashionably on time everywhere I go. [$22, Nordstrom]…

An All-Natural Deodorant That Actually Does What It Claims (Really!)

There's been a lot of talk in the past few years about chemicals in deodorant and their potential cancer-causing properties. I can't speak to that because I'm not a scientist (weird, right?), but I do know that traditional deodorants and antiperspirants have never quite worked for me: my sensitive skin and haphazard shaving habits make…

Don’t Get It Swissted

One of those major signs of adulthood is when you begin trading in your ratty band posters for actual framed pieces of art. But what if there was a way to pay homage to you favorite band and have some super stylish artwork, too? Enter Swissted, a new book from Mike Joyce, in which Joyce…

Powerful Advice You Can Sip On

In a previous Crave, Ami advised you to pick up the book Tiny Beautiful Things, a collection of the Dear Sugar advice columns published on the website The Rumpus. Penned by author Cheryl Strayed (who also wrote the best-selling memoir Wild), the Sugar advice columns are filled to the brim with wonderful wisdom for…

These Dogs Are Roaring

When I recently surveyed my sock drawer and noticed that my collection was all hole-filled stinkers and pairs that I'd "borrowed" from friends, I realized that it was time to update my footdrobe. I started with these Digital Tiger Ankle Socks, which send the appropriate "Don't step on my toes" message. Footwear that is both…

Brad Goreski Wrapped Around Your Little Finger

Okay, so ex-"Rachel Zoe Project" fashion fiend Brad Goreski might be the whiniest man on television. But his glasses are pretty sweet. And because Brad is Kate Spade's newest brand stylist, his signature glasses are now memorialized in earrings, a bangle, a necklace, and this adorable ring. Take that, Rachel Zoe!
