Pinch This Lobster Scarf

lobster scarf

Whether you’re headed to Red Lobster or the Bush compound in Kennebunkport, you should dress the part. And what better way to declare your love for crustaceans than wearing them? And no, I’m not talking about Philip Treacy lobster hat: I mean this cotton scarf featuring navy blue stripes and a lobster print! It looks so good you’ll have to stop yourself from dipping it in melted butter. [$21.99, ModCloth]

Face Wipes For Your Inner Islander

Lazy ladies know what’s up: when it comes to tumbling home after a late night (or collapsing in front of the TV with a glass of wine, whatever floats your boat), face wipes are the only way to go. Why fuss with soap and water when you can just slap a cleansing wipe on your face and call it a day? I know a good thing when I see it, and I also know an even better thing (really): unlike the drugstore-brand towelettes I usually pick up (no shame), these biodegradable Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes from Pacifica are formulated sans nasty chemicals with unpronounceable names. No phthalates, parabens, carmine, beeswax, lanolin, mineral oil, propylene glycol, petroleum, or FD&C colors, and 100% vegan and cruelty-free, they’re simply soaked in coconut water and natural exfoliating papaya, plus aloe and calendula extracts to soothe and calm. If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good face wipe, but 30 all-natural face wipes in a resealable, adorably patterned pouch at a price that’s beyond reasonable? I’m considering buying stock.

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 evokes literary genius with a blend tobacco, vetiver, black tea, musk and vanilla. Now people will smell your despair the moment you enter a room. But you wouldn’t have it any other way. [Etsy]

The Perfect Hot Pink Sandals For Spring

Comfortable High Heels
Which brands made the cut? Read More »

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 really chic and stylish until I step in a puddle of melted snow cone and immediately regret wearing my favorite shoes outside of the house. At $100, they’re about twice as much as I usually spend on shoes, but I might have to make an exception (or engage in some shameless birthday begging). [$105.95, Sofft]

Get Spicy In The Shower

Bath Time!
Squee! It's a baby monkey getting a bath! Watch »

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 lotion. It’s a softly sweet smell with rich and spicy undertones that won’t leave you feeling like you’ve just fallen into a vat of Calgon body mist. The Swedish company, which also offers a collection of high-end haircare products, prides itself on simple and clean design, an aesthetic that clearly translates to their shower gel scents. And if you don’t like spicy citrus (though why wouldn’t you?) there’s also Ginger Flower and Shiny Citrus flavors, too. [$16, Sachajuan]

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 politically active on this very important holiday, but if marching isn’t your thing (it isn’t mine) and you still want to do your part in commemorating, why not treat yourself to a fancy French soap and help women in need in the process? L’Occitane’s limited-edition Women’s Day Soaps are produced in Burkina Faso, Africa, as part of a partnership with a local factory run entirely by women in support of their economic emancipation, and 100 percent of the proceeds help to build literacy centers for the women of Burkina Faso. Formulated with L’Occitane’s signature shea butter and engraved with a motif that translates to “education,” this soap is as cute as it is conscious, and the program has educated over 5,000 women since 2006. Get in on it — pick up your bar on the brand’s website today! [$8, L’Occitane]
