I’ll be entirely honest: I treasure the finer things in life, and by “finer things” I mean “expensive stuff and anything with a French name.” This is precisely how I became infatuated with Paris-based candle-crafter and parfumeur (ooh, I just love that word) Diptyque. A cult favorite of fashion people and impossibly chic trust fund babies world-over, if the packaging alone doesn’t make you want to replace every candle in your house with one of their gorgeous glass jars, the compellingly complex scents will. Ever since I stumbled across the brick-and-mortar store a few years back, I’ve been coveting their products with an ardency formerly reserved for shoes (and, who am I kidding, Indian food). While at this point in my life my conscience doesn’t allow for a $65 candle, nor a $45 scented oval (though I’ll happily hand over my mailing address should you want to send me a gift), I can totally get on board with their solid perfumes. Poured into weighty black cases engraved with the iconic Diptyque logo and protected by a small velvet pouch, just carrying one of these tiny treasures in your purse is enough to make you feel like a more refined, more fabulous, more interesting, better-traveled, better-looking person. It’s magic. I swear. They smell pretty good, too — my signature scent is Eau Duelle, a smoky, spicy take on vanilla. [$48, Diptyque]

The thing that has been getting me through the winter is hot yoga. But there is one — only one–drawback. My laundry load has quadrupled. There’s so much sweating going on that I need so much more gear than I have. That, or I need to start doing laundry two to three times a week. Not gonna happen! I heard some girls at my yoga studio talking about this service called PV.Body. For $50 a month, stylists pick out a top and bottom, of various brands and styles, customized to your body type and workout needs, and ship them (free of charge) to your doorstep. If you’ve ever shopped at Lululemon, then you know that a new yoga outfit will run you at least $150. Save a $100? Yes, please. Added bonus: if you don’t like your new outfit, you can exchange it for another. If that isn’t motivation to stick with your new workout routine, I don’t know what is. [$50/ month, PV.Body]

Skin Care That’s The Fountain Of Youth

As a beauty and style editor, I get to try lots and lots of skincare products. You should see my bathroom at home (actually, you shouldn’t see my bathroom at home, it’s a hoarder’s paradise). There’s a lot of good stuff out there, but rarely do I find a product that’s legitimately great. Fresh’s new Lotus Youth Cream is that product. An anti-aging face cream with a propietary Super 7 Complex, the Lotus Youth Cream works to minimize the signs of aging and make your skin feel all dewy and fresh. There’s a bunch of good-for-your-skin stuff in it, like maca root extract, which apparently speeds up cell turnover; lotus flower extract, which defends against free radicals; and blue-green algae, which preserves collagen. That’s the long answer to why you’d want to use this stuff. The short answer is, it makes your skin look luminous and beautiful and radiant. [$42, Fresh]

How Many Hair Ties Does It Take To Get To The Center Of This Lollipop?

You don’t have to do any licking to solve this riddle, because this is actually a set of 60 hair ties wrapped up in the shape of an adorable lollipop. At the rate I lose hair ties, one of these lollipops would last me about a week, so I should probably buy all three. [$8.95, Neatoshop]

I’m always looking for new ways to get motivated to talk on the phone. I absolutely dread answering and returning phone calls. But I do love bananas. This radiation-proof iPhone handset is sure to put the fun back in phone time. Or, if nothing else, it should inspire some situational comedy when seen walking down the street asking a banana, “How are you today?” [$21.99, Amazon via Outblush]
