I love all of Valentina’s colorful ink drawings, but this flower print especially caught my eye, thanks to its funky ’70s vibe and whimsical swirling shapes. The best part? Unlike the jar of wilted roses in my office that I keep forgetting to throw away, this bouquet will last forever. [$35 framed, Society6]

Whether you believe in the principle of karma or not, it never hurts to try to be a more magnanimous person. This soapstone karma counter, a millenary method developed in Tibet to remind you to think about the consequences of your actions, helps you see how your quest for goodness stacks up each day. For every good deed you place a light pebble in the center, for not-so-great deeds, a dark one. The next day, you can try to out-good yourself. It’s believed that as your good pebble ratio grows, so will the rewards that come back to you. [$59.95 Novica via Outblush]

Let J. Crew’s Pixie put the leggings as pants controversy to rest — leggings CAN be worn as pants when they’re as sleek, thick, slimming and comfy as these. Despite being a J. Crew enthusiast (seriously, I am often dressed like an unpaid and less perfect J. Crew model), I didn’t become aware of the Pixie Pants’ magical powers until recently, when I complimented a number of fashion-y ladies on their leggings looking decidedly inoffensive when worn solo with buttondowns and sweaters. “Oh, these are not your normal leggings,” they each said in some way or another. “They’re Pixie Pants! From J. Crew!” The difference is that these leggings have a zipper in the back and are made from thicker material than the usual stretch jersey. They’re incredibly slimming and warm and are totally opaque. Seriously, these are the chicest leggings you could ever own. It’s only right to wear them as pants. [$88, J. Crew]

I can’t be the only Mac addict whose iPhone gets lost over the course of the day somewhere underneath the mail, lip balms, and napkins in my purse.

The scents of Christmas are so played out. I don’t want my house to smell like fir leaves and pumpkin pie this holiday season, I want it to smell like freedom. The olfactory equivalent of a motorcycle ride along the Pacific Coast Highway. The Easy Rider candle will fill your home with the scent of leather, tar and woodsmoke — I like to think of it as the smell of wind in your hair. Burn, baby, burn. [$48, The Motley via Outblush]

Thanks to email and the Internet machine you’re currently on, letter writing has become something of a lost art form. But fashion editor Derek Blasberg (pictured with cat!) is about to change all that. Blasberg created the Handwritten Letter Helper, a kit to get you back in the writing game. It comes complete with several different form letters (True Love, Thinking of You, Happy Anniversary, Happy Birthday, Thank You, Let’s Celebrate, Congratulations, It’s Baby Time) that can be customized and kitted out. And Blasberg’s letter writing tips: “Do your best to write clearly, or else you’ll look like a serial killer. If you make a mistake, just draw a line through the error instead of making a big, unsightly scribble. And always make sure you have enough postage or else all this handwork will be for naught.” So grab a pen, practice your penmanship, and get back in the correspondence game. [$24, Opening Ceremony]

Farm Sanctuary is a nonprofit organization that aims to rescue animals from factory farms. Operating since 1986, the organization runs three sanctuaries in New York and California, offering chickens, goats, pigs, cows and other animals the chance at a second life. Farm Sanctuary runs educational programs on the cruelties of factory farming, and works tirelessly to protect the plight of animals that might otherwise be abused, tortured, maimed or killed. The awesome thing is Farm Sanctuary offers myriad ways to help. You can donate to their programs, adopt an animal (like Blixen or Jonathan, pictured), or even visit the sanctuaries yourself, and see first-hand the difference this work is making. And right now, if you donate before December 17, your donation will be matched, dollar for dollar, helping animals in need. [Farm Sanctuary]

I usually go for crazy nail polish colors like neon pink and rainbow glitter, but the other day I randomly bought a bottle of rose gold polish, and the surprisingly subtle shade is shaping up to be my new favorite. The pink undertones make it flattering on any skin tone and help it stand out from other gold polishes that are everywhere this season. Perfect. [$7.50, Amazon]
