Measure Your Issues In Tissues

You know it’s been a productive therapy session if you sniffled your way through a whole box of tissues. On days that you can’t cry to your shrink, comfort yourself with this In Treatment tissue box cover. If nothing else, it will add some kitsch to your crying jags. And if you go through a…

Get Your Color-Treated Hair Cleaner Than Ever

We’ve all been there (or I sure hope so, otherwise this may end up being an embarrassing confession): you wash, rinse, repeat, condition, and style as usual, only to find that your hair is still looking less than squeaky clean. Product residue, environmental grime, and (ew) scalp buildup all contribute to the dulling and dirtying…

Show Your Visitors Some Love

You’re not a lonely shut-in desperate for company. No, you are not! But on the off chance that you are a little lonely, no need to beg your visitor to stay for another viewing of “Harold and Maude.” Just throw down this “Please Don’t Leave” rug as a subtle reminder that your guest is welcome…

You Deserve A Pizza Patch

You know all those late nights you spent sort of drunk and eating pizza with friends? Well, you deserve a medal for that. And if not a medal, then at least a patch, right? Thankfully the guys over at Demerit Patches realize that you deserve to be rewarded for all the little things you do…

Ooh La La, Your Pillows Are Trés Chic

It’s not every morning a girl is lucky enough to wake up next to a Frenchman waiting with a cafe au lait and a warm croissant. But I can dream, can’t I? These chic cotton and machine washable bed pillows from Mod Cloth will get me partway there … and if it doesn’t work out…

Transform Your Home Into A Tropical Island Getaway

My office is not exactly an example of cleanliness and tranquility (once I left a half-eaten veggie burger under my easel for so long it started to grow arms and legs), but the scent of this Island Vanilla soy candle is so lovely and intoxicating that I can light it and close my eyes and…

Melvita Yellow Fruit Shower Scrub Makes Exfoliating Easy

I may tend to my face religiously, but I’m no saint: I commit a cardinal beauty sin every day by neglecting my skin from the neck down. I’ll cleanse, exfoliate, tone, and moisturize my mug until anyone in the vicinity is like, “Why is she still in the bathroom?,” but when it comes to the…

If Jane Austen Had An iPad Cover…

If Jane Austen had an iPad today, she’d be tweeting about boys just like us. And she’d do it with this rad Pride And Prejudice iPad cover, which fits iPads versions 2, 3, and 4. The hardcover book board cover, layered with rubber inside, has been made by the oldest bookbindery in the United State…

Diptyque’s Solid Perfumes Are Divine

I’ll be entirely honest: I treasure the finer things in life, and by “finer things” I mean “expensive stuff and anything with a French name.” This is precisely how I became infatuated with Paris-based candle-crafter and parfumeur (ooh, I just love that word) Diptyque. A cult favorite of fashion people and impossibly chic trust fund…

If You Wish To Make A Fabulous Dress, You Must First Invent The Universe

A flirty mini dress in a stunning galaxy print, for less than $50: perfection. Add black tights, pointy toe pumps, a cropped blazer, and this astronaut necklace to really complete the look. [$44, ROMWE]…

Get Decked Out To Work Out (For Less!)

The thing that has been getting me through the winter is hot yoga. But there is one — only one–drawback. My laundry load has quadrupled. There’s so much sweating going on that I need so much more gear than I have. That, or I need to start doing laundry two to three times a week.

Skin Care That’s The Fountain Of Youth

As a beauty and style editor, I get to try lots and lots of skincare products. You should see my bathroom at home (actually, you shouldn’t see my bathroom at home, it’s a hoarder’s paradise). There’s a lot of good stuff out there, but rarely do I find a product that’s legitimately great. Fresh’s new…

How Many Hair Ties Does It Take To Get To The Center Of This Lollipop?

You don’t have to do any licking to solve this riddle, because this is actually a set of 60 hair ties wrapped up in the shape of an adorable lollipop. At the rate I lose hair ties, one of these lollipops would last me about a week, so I should probably buy all three. [$8.95, Neatoshop]…

Is That A Banana On Your Ear Or Are You Just Happy To Talk To Me?

I’m always looking for new ways to get motivated to talk on the phone. I absolutely dread answering and returning phone calls. But I do love bananas. This radiation-proof iPhone handset is sure to put the fun back in phone time. Or, if nothing else, it should inspire some situational comedy when seen walking dow…

Vote Poehler/Fey In 2016!

Another election is four years away? Blerg. At least we’ve got plenty of time to convince Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to make the Poehler/Fey ticket actually happen. (Although, would it be great if they launched their campaign while hosting Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards?) Those bitches would get stuff done and wear sweatshirts and sensible…

Show The Dowager Countess How It’s Done

For those of us who were born into the unfortunate circumstance of having to work for a living, weekends are a very important thing for us. They are a time for fun and relaxation, a time to catch up on our favorite TV shows, like “Downton Abbey.” I suppose we’ll have to school the Dowager…

Proof That Vanilla Is Anything But Boring

I go hogwild for anything vanilla. It’s my favorite flavor, and I will eagerly eat anything that includes the word “vanilla” in the title, even if it’s, like, a vanilla tuna casserole (yum!). So I’ll definitely be clearing a space on my kitchen shelf for Pure Vanilla, a whole cookbook dedicated solely to delicious vanilla recipes. Vanilla…

This Organic Lip Salve Has Your Chapped Lips Covered

My lips are crazy chapped this time of year. Eh, who am I kidding — I’m in the throes of a lifelong battle against cracked, peeling lips, which is probably the least sexy thing in all of the world. Not that sexy is one of my foremost concerns, given that I have eschewed men for…

Finally, Tweezers With Technological Help

Every once in a while, I get my eyebrows professionally threaded. But for the most part, I tweeze. Because I’m lazy, and also anxiety-prone and ripping out eyebrow hairs feels somehow calming. But most tweezers? Totally ineffectual. It’s so hard to see the hairs! But not anymore. Revlon finally put two and two together and…
