Fall Field Trips Call For Pretty Plaid Satchels

Just one look at this gorgeous wool and leather satchel has me chomping at the bit for a weekend road trip. I’ll wear a baggy sweater and gaze out the window at the blur of colorful leaves, and I don’t even care where the destination is, as long as there’s hot chocolate. Aaaahhh, fall, I’ve…

Wear this pair of 14-karat gold-filled studs and be reminded of what a lovely stud you are. Also, self-love goes with everything so you can rock these earrings every day, not just on special…

These Booties Are Beauties

Newsflash: your fall wardrobe is simply not complete without a pair of ankle boots. Okay, my fall wardrobe won’t be complete without a pair of ankle boots — but I don’t want to spend a mess of dough on them. So I practically spit out my Diet Coke when I came across this absurdly chea…

Fall Into A Slouchy Cardigan In A Perky Color

This cardigan combines the best thing about fall fashion (slouchy cardigans!) with the best thing about summer fashion (bright colors!), which makes it the perfect transition piece to bridge the seasons. I’d love to throw it on over jersey dresses or dark denim skinny jeans and flats–pretty sure I’d find a way to wear thi…

A Journey Through Northwest London

NW, the title of Zadie Smith’s new novel, refers to northwest London, specifically the neighborhood of Willesden, the area where Smith grew up. Smith revisits this multi-cultural neighborhood, which served as the setting for her debut novel, White Teeth (one of my all-time favorites). “This is the story of a city. The northwest corner of…

This Cassette Tape Ring Is Music To My Ears

At the risk of sounding like a grumpy old man, I miss cassette tapes. I miss their fuzzy sound quality. I miss the weight of them in my hand. I miss organizing them alphabetically in my bottom dresser drawer. I miss waiting by the radio like a lion ready to pounce on the “record” butto…

You Know What Time It Is

I’ve never been much of a watch person, because I’m addicted to my phone and I check it every five seconds. But! If you give me a watch that’s actually cute? And wearable? And somehow adds more zing to my wardrobe? Well then, I just might consider it. That’s why I’m really feeling this gorgeou…

Meet The Most Perfect Pair Of $5 Panties

I bought a pair of these panties in black lace for the same reason anyone buys anything at Target: I was there to buy a box of Luna Bars and saw them hanging on a rack under a big $5 sign. I knew they were cute and cheap, but I didn’t know they would quickly…

Dreams Of Amber And Vanilla

As a collector (read: hoarder) of perfumes and body lotions, I will say that my very favorites are made by Laura Mercier. I was depressed when they discontinued the Vanille Gourmande body lotion last year. I still hold out hope that they will start making it again. It was the most heavenly smell in the…

Practice Pasta Portion Control

“Eating all the pasta” is an innate skill for those of us born with Italian blood, but the rest of you have probably dealt with the phenomena of making “too much” spaghetti and being unable to finish it all. Solve that problem with this genius pasta storage container, which comes with a “measuring cap” that…

Benefit Wrote The Book On Flawless Complexions

What happens when you take  four best-selling skincare and makeup products and combine them in a kit that looks like a vintage hardbound book? I squeal with delight, that’s what happens, because Benefit’s new “How To Look The Best At Everything” flawless complexion kit is not only a great makeup combo, it’s adorable. For 30…

It’s Like Butter, Baby!

I’m a sucker for all-in-one products — especially when they come from a brand I love so much, like Italian beauty brand Davines. I’ve long loved their wickedly priced haircare products, which come in a range of strange flavors, like “Nou” and “Melu.” Now they’ve come up with a new formulation that works on both…

Fashion, From The Beginning

Ever wonder what made peplums such an enduring trend while men’s powdered wigs fell by the wayside? Me too. That’s why I’m obsessing over a new compendium of the history of fashion and costume from the Smithsonian. Titled Fashion; The Definitive History Of Costume and Style, this massive volume covers sartorial trends from the ancient…

Paris, For Less Than The Price Of A Plane Ticket

I am much too obsessed with Paris for my own good, especially considering that I’ve never been there. I’m enamored of the idea of it, so when I do eventually go (and, by God, I will), there is a decent chance that I will be hideously disappointed. With that in mind, I’m significantly less interested…

Feeling Irritable? Let Tata Harper Ease Your Troubled Mind

I’ve been known to get a touch irritable from time to time. Wait, let me rephrase that: I am a generally irritable human being. (More often than not, my irritability stems from an overriding sense of hanger, which kind of goes without saying given that I am forever hungry.) I had previously accepted “on edge”…

Get Your Cords Under Control

As a person with a moderate case of OCD, nothing stresses me out like a tangled mess of wires and electrical cords ruining the otherwise pristine ambiance in my home. So I fell in love with this sleek and compact plug hub that has room for a power strip, contains three cord anchors for hiding…

Classic Stripes With Some Verve

You can never have too many striped shirts: they dress up, they dress down, and they are, above all, classic. I’m loving Madewell’s colorful take on a classic striped long-sleeve T, which I’m already joyfully matching in my head with colorful jeans already in my closet. How can you not be happy in a plum…

An All-In-One Remedy To Brighten, Correct And Heal Your Skin

As a card-carrying Lazy Person, I’m always in search of the best multitasking beauty products to cut a minute or two out of my routine. Some mornings I can manage a full-on primer, foundation, concealer, and powder process, but other days (like Mondays!) I can be found pleading to the makeup gods for something far…

Relax While You Clean

Get comfie and enjoy your chores for a change. If these Slipper Genie Microfiber Cleaning Slippers don’t motivate you to scrub your kitchen floor, nothing will. You don’t even have to bother with the broom or the mop. Just dance the dirt and dust away, then dip your feet in the soapy water and skate…

Light In Her Eyes

I will never, never stop loving glittery eyeliner, no matter how old I am! Lucky for me, these glitter eyeliner pencils from Femme Couture are easy on my wallet and can be found at Sally Beauty. Applying is a total snap! With all the fun pops of color to try, I wish I had another pair…
