Colorful Earrings Brighten Up Everything

October’s almost over, which means all of that lovely summer color has drained from my face and I’m back to my normal fall/winter skintone of “transluscent pallor.” This is the time of year when I love to wear big, colorful earrings to brighten up my face. These fabulous crimson chandeliers should do the trick. [$60,…

A Mensch For Every Month

It’s wall calendar season! I don’t care if you keep your schedule on your iPhone. I do, too. But I still firmly believe in wall calendars. You need something fun to look at while you work. Something inspiring. For 2012, I had Flower Spirits in my cubicle. It was lovely and stuff, but in 2013,…

Solve Chapped Lips Like A Surf Pro

I tried surfing once. It didn’t end so well — I lost the surf board and almost slammed up against a bunch of rocks. Still, there’s something totally dreamy about surf culture — and especially surfer girls, who are totally badass, and strong and basically live in the ocean. And that’s why I’m really excited…

A Starry Autumn Night Has Never Smelled So Good

Leave it to LUSH to formulate the perfect antidote for those autumn-onset blues with a sweet starry-night-in-a-bottle ― and to make it a bittersweet limited edition, so that we’ll have to ration it all spring and summer long. Twilight Shower Gel, the sudsy incarnation of the brand’s beloved Twilight Bath Bomb, only comes around once…

A Terrific Way To Wear Your Terrarium

Not only is this colorful little terrarium pendant freakin’ adorable, it’s much less messy than stringing an actual terrarium around your neck (trust me, running to the bus while wearing a jar full of a dirt never ends well). [$44, Yellow Owl Workshop]…

Vegan Desserts To Fool Your Non-Vegan Friends

Sure, a vegan diet is healthy, but it’s pretty much murder on your sweet tooth. And if you’ve got one the way I do, you’re always craving a little something sweet at the end of a meal. Enter the ladies at Vegan Divas, a really wonderful low-calorie, kosher and organic dessert  line based in NYC.

Turn Around, Bright Eyes

Some of us were born with those wonderful genes which keep us looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, even on one hour of sleep. I am not one of those people. The worst compliment any guy ever gave me was that he “loved the dark circles under my eyes.” I wanted to crawl in a hole and…

I Pity The Fool Who Doesn’t Brew Their Tea In This Teapot

My little tea time routine involves brewing some vanilla chai, putting on some chill music, eating a square (or three) of dark chocolate, and flipping through a fashion magazine. It’s totally relaxing, but you know what’s missing? Mr. T glaring at me from the side of my teapot. Yep, that would really take the whole…

Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer

I’d had enough with drugstore moisturizers until I found the heavenly Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer. This little blessing in a bottle was just calling out to my acne-inflamed face. After using the moisturizer for the last four months, I have noticed how few breakouts I now have, how much the size of my inflammatio…

My, Does Your Hair Looks Sharp Today

I like to think of my sartorial sensibility as a delicate balance between what’s lovely and girlish and what’s, well, kind of rough around the edges; for every piece in my wardrobe that’s lacy, silk, or floral, there’s a pair of black leather boots just waiting to be worn with it. For the girl —…

Lick ‘Em Like A Lollipop

Did Lil’ Wayne know about these humanly lollies when he sang his infamous lyrics, “she licks me like a lollipop?” Maybe instead of wanting to lick the rapper, Wayne’s featured woman would be interested in sucking on some other body parts. Think Geek’s Gory Body Parts set includes four non-genital members, including the watermelon brain,…

Tights On Tap

As we settle deeper into fall and winter, it’s inevitably time to take stock of your tights options. If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a rather extensive collection of somewhat ratty, ripped and worn out stockings in dire need of replacement. And that’s why I’m so happy that there’s a new service, for people…

Set The Message Straight Any Day Of The Week

Maybe you’re mean, or maybe you’re just sassy. Maybe it’s Monday morning and you haven’t gotten your caffeine intravenously yet (three shots, please). Maybe it’s Saturday night and you feel like going to a trashy dive with your girlfriends without being approached by the lechers that generally come with it. Hell, maybe it’s Wednesday, and…

The Only Chavril Engagement T-Shirt You’ll Ever Need

Lately I’ve been looking at my closet and feeling an overwhelming sense of “I have nothing to wear!” Luckily though, I just found the magical garment that will instantly fill the gaping void in my wardrobe: a Chavril engagement T-shirt, which celebrates the upcoming Canadian royal wedding of ChAvril LaKroeger, aka Avril Lavigne and Chad…

The Fragrance Of Forgiveness

Contradictory combinations often end up making the most sense. My nose was initially confused by OLO’s Violet/Leather perfume oil. Inspired by the Mark Twain quote, “Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it,” as the company describes the scent, “It smells like violet, it smells like leather.” Indeed,…

A Pink Shirt With Power

As of right now, there are only six states that recognize gay marriage. That’s ridiculous, but what’s not? The Pink States Project, which allows you to wear your support of gay marriage on your chest — in a cool (and pink!) fashion. Right now, you can choose from among the six states where gay marriage…

The Ultimate Hot Pepper Helper

I love cooking spicy food and throw jalapeños in just about anything that makes sense — Tacos! Chili! Eggs! — but nearly every time I do, I manage to add a little heat to my nose and eyes as well. But with this awesome jalapeno corer, I can avoid touching the extra spicy bits with my…
