Plant This Pretty Flower Print Anywhere In Your House

I love all of Valentina's colorful ink drawings, but this flower print especially caught my eye, thanks to its funky '70s vibe and whimsical swirling shapes. The best part? Unlike the jar of wilted roses in my office that I keep forgetting to throw away, this bouquet will last forever. [$35 framed, Society6]…

The Only Leggings You Should Wear As Pants

Let J. Crew's Pixie put the leggings as pants controversy to rest -- leggings CAN be worn as pants when they're as sleek, thick, slimming and comfy as these. Despite being a J. Crew enthusiast (seriously, I am often dressed like an unpaid and less perfect J. Crew model), I didn't become aware of the…

Treat Yourself To A Heaping Glass Of Wine Ice Cream

This wine ice cream is the real deal, containing 5 percent alcohol by volume, which means enjoying a couple scoops of Chocolate Cabernet or Peach White Zinfandel could make you a bit tipsy. And I can't really think of anything better than that. [$7.95/pint, plus shipping, Mercer's]…

The Purr-fect iPhone Stand

I can't be the only Mac addict whose iPhone gets lost over the course of the day somewhere underneath the mail, lip balms, and napkins in my purse. How am I supposed to respond to my What's App? messages within 12 seconds of receiving them if I can't find my phone?! Rest assured, because there'…

Burn, Baby, Burn

The scents of Christmas are so played out. I don't want my house to smell like fir leaves and pumpkin pie this holiday season, I want it to smell like freedom. The olfactory equivalent of a motorcycle ride along the Pacific Coast Highway. The Easy Rider candle will fill your home with the scent of…

A Precious Metal Manicure

I usually go for crazy nail polish colors like neon pink and rainbow glitter, but the other day I randomly bought a bottle of rose gold polish, and the surprisingly subtle shade is shaping up to be my new favorite. The pink undertones make it flattering on any skin tone and help it stand out…

Get Chaperoned To Book Club

Once upon a time, when a respectable young lady traveled to the big, bad city, she was accompanied by a chaperone, lest anyone get the wrong idea about her virtue. The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty is a fictionalized tale about a Wichita woman in 1922 who was hired to accompany a 15-year-old Louise Brooks to…

A Man Who Likes To Cuddle And Never Complains

Well, it looks like it's going to be another long, cold, single winter with plenty of extra room in my bed for a Dream Man Arm Pillow. I'll take it in Black, obviously. He looks like he might also have been goth in high school, so, we have that in common. I can imagine our…

Comfy Pajama Pants For Cozy Winter Lounging

My lounge clothing wardrobe is currently made up solely of garments that have been retired from other parts of my wardrobe. Adidas workout pants with a hole in the crotch? Lounge pants! Sweater with a mustard stain on it? Lounging sweater! And while this technique has saved me a lot of money, it's starting to…

Great Dates, Without All The Planning

When I first heard that online dating site HowAboutWe was offering a new date planning service for couples, I thought: Seriously? You're going to pay a website to plan dates for you? And then I thought about how my boyfriend and I spend most of our nights sprawled across the couch, desperately scanning Netflix for a…

Calling All Crazy Cat Ladies

Don't bother asking me whether I'm a dog person or a cat person, because I have immeasurable affection for both species. (I also love, though strictly from afar, foxes, coyotes, wolves, lions, leopards, and essentially anything else you might find on your average safari.) But I'll confess: I cultivate a soft spot for felines that…
