Time To Grow Up

Owning a watch — a sophisticated one — is one of the rites of passage into womanhood that passed me by. I had a number of neon and patterned Swatches in the ’80s, but I forgot to update. I love the way a chic watch can pull an outfit together, give you an air of confidence, let the world know that you are one badass, on-time lady. My watch style is ready to get an adult makeover. Citizen’s rose gold watch with Swarovski crystals — from Citizen’s new Drive collection — is vintage yet modern; affordable yet expensive looking. Perfect for a focused, 30-something woman who wants to make a statement.Most importantly, it’s convenient and eco-friendly because it’s are powered by light.  Meaning, I’ll never need to replace the batteries. That appeals to the girl in me, who still doesn’t find herself able to get around to doing those sorts of things. [$295, Kay Jewelerss]

The Secret To A Perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich

It’s getting to be that time in February where I’m like, “Really, Winter? You’re still here?!” Pretty much the only thing getting me through these dreary gray days are the soups and amazing grilled cheese sandwiches my cheesemonger/boyfriend has been making for dinner. The other night he used this Kerrygold aged Irish cheddar on white bread with a few leaves of arugula, and it was perfection. Try it for yourself! It will help you forget that we still have a month til the official start of spring. [$5.89, Food Ireland or your local cheese seller]

If you’re a friend of mine and have tried to make plans with me the last few weeks, you’ve likely failed, because i have been very busy planning my infiltration into the upper echelon of Scientology. And by “planning” I mean reading Going Clear by Lawrence Wright and Beyond Belief by Jenna Miscavige Hill, two new fascinating and in-depth books about the notorious cult/religion, and having extremely exciting dreams in which I am tasked by the authorities to help take down the religion. Both books are so fantastic, I couldn’t pick just one to recommend as a Crave, so I’m doing both, because I am the David Miscavige of The Frisky, only much taller. Keep reading »

It’s About Time To Buy A Really Fabulous Watch

I’ve been looking for a chunky, menswear-inspired watch for awhile now, and this one, with a black tuxedo stripe and ring of rhinestones, might be The One. I’ll wear it with a slouchy black V-neck sweater and jeans, and be fashionably on time everywhere I go. [$22, Nordstrom]

There’s been a lot of talk in the past few years about chemicals in deodorant and their potential cancer-causing properties. I can’t speak to that because I’m not a scientist (weird, right?), but I do know that traditional deodorants and antiperspirants have never quite worked for me: my sensitive skin and haphazard shaving habits make me the perfect candidate for redness and irritation (and if you’ve ever applied deodorant on raw skin, you know just how painful that irritation can be), and the unmistakable plasticky-powdered-flower stench knows just how to induce a migraine in seconds flat. I used to forego the stuff altogether because I don’t have much of a natural scent, but since I’ve started exercising regularly (a novel concept!), that is no longer an option. And so began the search for a natural deodorant that isn’t Tom’s of Maine or a friggin’ rock. It’s pricy, so call me a flagrant wastrel if you must, but Lavanila’s The Healthy Deodorant is the only way to go from here. The light, fresh scents come from a combination of essential oils, and thanks to its primary ingredient (aloe!) I’ll never have to face a compulsively itchy armpit ever again. And here’s the kicker: it really works, all day long. [$18, Lavanila]
