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 totebags (that’s San Francisco on the left and Austin on the right) which measture at 18″x 14.5″x 3″D and are handmade in the US of A. What’s not to love? [$22, CityFabric]

“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’s unusual study technique helped him raise his grades and led to what is now an entire college curriculum of pillow cases. Whether you’re a student trying to ace Economics, or a graduate looking to brush up on her Biology, you can sleep with your favorite subject(s) and wake up smarter. Principles of Psychology, I’m going to sleep with you. [$19.99, Pillow Case Studies]

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, does a product line truly wow me, and the ones that do tend to be well found-out; as in, I don’t need to evangelize because they’re already super-popular, and I don’t want to have any hand in them flying off the shelves lest I not be able to find them anymore (I’m looking at you, Tata Harper, you perfect product-formulator, you). But when I fall in love with something brand new to the market, that is when it comes time for me to shout it from the rooftops. Orico is one such line. This British import, powered by Ecocert certified organic ingredients like plant oils and advanced antioxidants, was created with city slickers in mind: all of their products are formulated for skin that is frequently exposed to pollution, stress, air-conditioning, and heating. Which, unless you live in a zen forest (and I am so jealous if you do), applies to pretty much everyone. Since launching stateside at the end of January, Orico has already been recommended by Vogue and Vanity Fair. Bottom line? Go place your order before everyone else beats you to it.

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 Paris obsession much more stylishly–and subtly–than my usual Paris-themed impulse purchases. But just to drive the point home, I want to wear it with cuffed jeans and ballet flats while I grab a croissant and an espresso. Oui, oui! [$18, ZenThreads]

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 that sudden visit from your mom or how to fake short hair when you can’t commit to cutting (what, you can do that?!), Jennifer Byrne’s Fake It: More Than 100 Shortcuts Every Woman Should Know is your secret recipe for success. Lazy? Noooo! You’re just savvy! [$12.44, Amazon]

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. And forget about waiting for it to absorb into your skin before you put your clothes on. It dries immediately, without leaving those white streaks all over your favorite LBD. You’ll emerge with glowy skin, smelling like a person who spends hours getting ready. As if. [$5.99, Target]
