Step It Up, Lipstick, Hourglass Opaque Rouge Is Making You Look Bad

It’s official: we’ve entered an age in which your average lipstick just won’t cut it, and neither will the slippery high-gloss patinas of yore. We need moisturizing, long-wearing, intensely pigmented matte colors that won’t flake, fade, or budge, and we need them, like, yesterday. Enter Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick, a rich, creamy formula that… More »


Time For An Icy Cool Fashion Statement

The cool minty color of this watch totally reminds me of the “Daiquiri Ice” flavor at Baskin Robbins, which I ordered by accident one time as a child and then started hyperventilating because I was so scared it was going to get me drunk and then I’d get arrested and never be able to become… More »


A Cup Holder For Klutzes

As a thirsty person, I need a beverage, sometimes several, near me at all times. As a klutz, I am prone to knocking over any drink that crosses my path. This becomes a serious issue whenever there are technological gadgets or important papers in my midst, which is the case every Monday through Friday while… More »


Gnome Sweet Gnome

Lawn gnomes are so 2011. This portly porcelain pal is an indoor gnome; he sits atop a pile of books as as reads and glows. He’ll make his home anyplace in your apartment that needs some atmospheric lighting. Now if you could just find neon flashing pink flamingoes so he is not so lonely. [$54.99, ModCloth]… More »


Wear Your Annoying Feminism Around Your Neck!

Sick of having the same-old-same-old convo with your misogynist friends and neighbors? Tired of always having to explain to your nearest and dearest how your annoying feminism is an inflexible, static part of your political worldview? Then maybe you need to cut to the chase and get one of these “Feminist Killjoy” necklaces. Made by… More »


Send My Love To These Itty Bitty Air Mail Earrings

If there are two things I love in this world, it’s the mail system and vintage travel ephemera. If I had to choose a third thing to add to my love list, it would be miniaturized versions of things (coming in a distant fourth would be my boyfriend, tied with lasagna). So as you can… More »


Zut Alors, A Cute T-Shirt!

Driven to outbursts of “%&@#!” and “@#$*!” when you look at the prices on Kate Spade’s goodies? Me, too, sadly. But their new “Pardon My French” T-shirt will apologize for you in advance with trademark Gallic politesse. Parlez-vous “adorable” is more like it! [$58, Kate Spade] … More »


A Green Bag For Not A Lot Of Loot

I’ve been totally jonesing for a bright bag for fall, but don’t want to blow my wad on something I might not be so psyched about in a year. (A bright green purse, after all, is not necessarily as eternally stylish as one in brown or black.) That’s why I’m loving the look of this… More »


The Love Child Of Dark Chocolate And Bacon

The sophisticated palate knows: A balance of savory and sweet makes the most satisfying treat. But even the least sophisticated tastes can appreciate the merits of chocolate and bacon. But together? Well, if you like dark chocolate and you like bacon (is there anyone who doesn’t?), you’re going to dig their love child, Mo’s Dark… More »


Black And White And Cute All Over

I am the nation’s foremost appreciator of polka dots, so much so that when Julie once wore a polka dot dress to work I yelled at her not to gank my style. I’ll reclaim my rightful place on the throne with these adorable black-and-white flats from Old Navy! The price tag is easy on my… More »


A Funny Memoir Full Of Tall Tales

Normally I like to wait until I’ve read a book to actually recommend it, but for some writers I make exceptions. In this case, I’m talking about the amazing Anna Goldfarb (of the blog Shmitten Kitten, and an occasional Frisky contributor) and her upcoming memoir, Clearly, I Didn’t Think This Through: The Story of One TallMore »


Now Your Hands Can Be A Coloring Book

One of the saddest parts of being an adult is the lack of opportunities to use crayons, which is why I’m so stoked about this pack of Crayola nail polish, which includes eight shimmery colors in miniature bottles. It would be such a fun addition to a very grown-up cosmetics collection. Now I just need… More »


Show Your Skin Some Lychee Love

I’ve been a long time fan of Kiehl’s products, but their new line of aromatic lotion blends provide the perfect balance of scent and skin softening. Being the body lotion fanatic that I am, I very picky about both aroma and texture. This one goes on smooth and smells delightful. The orange flower and lychee… More »


Rae Cosmetics Brings Some Pretty To Your Early Morning Workout

My favorite sport has long been surfing the web, preferably on a bed or chaise lounge, but rumor has it that such a sedentary lifestyle might not actually be the best thing for your body. So don’t laugh, but lately I’ve been making more of an effort to get off my lazy ass and actually… More »


Think Pink (For Keyboards, That Is)

I might be more than a little obsessed with C.Wonder’s WASP-y clothes, jewelry and accessories. But you shouldn’t concern yourself with that — no, you should be concerned with which of these three preppy colors you’ll choose for a Bluetooth-connected tablet keyboard. The small keyboard is lightweight, easy to carry, and makes it so much… More »


Put Your Pup’s Fears To Rest With The Thundershirt!

My pup Lucca presents herself as fearless, telling dogs twice her size who’s boss, but the one thing that sends her cowering in fear is thunder and lightening. A summer storm — and we’ve had a few of them so far — sends her into a panic, seeking shelter under the bed, in my bathtub,… More »


I Guess We Could Call This “Construction Site Chic”

Artist Max Steiner creates these teeny tiny cinder blocks the old fashioned way: by pouring the cement and letting it set for one month. The end result? A 3/4 inch cement pendant that’s incredibly strong and surprisingly delicate, strung onto a long silver chain. I’d love to layer this industrial necklace with a few strands… More »


A Bracelet Fit For A Tetris Freak

If you’re a Tetris freak like me (and Julie), then you spend most of your waking hours thinking about new and exciting ways to fit those pieces together. Heck, sometimes you even dream about the game. No shame in that. This lovely Tetris bracelet, made of brass and colored resin, will remind you to never… More »
