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 strand…

Thirsty, Thirsty Hippos

If you’re anything like me, you need a jolt to get you through the morning. Usually I favor caffeine but this mug with a hippo at the bottom will work, too. I can totally see myself sucking down a cup of joe and shrieking, “Oh my God, there’s a hippo in my coffee!” (There’s also an

Helmut Red Is An Oh-So-Appropriate Tribute To A Legend

Helmut Newton is inarguably one of the most prolific fashion photographers in history. His body of work, which during his life was a mainstay in high-end publications like Vogue Paris and Harper’s Bazaar, is instantly recognizable world-over. Nudity, overt sexualization, and erotic fetishistic subtexts stylized expressively in black and white are the hallmarks of a…

Everyone’s Invited To My Pie Pop Party

Just as I was kinda sorta maybe starting to get sick of the cake pop trend, I am introduced to the concept of pie pops, and my faith in ridiculous-desserts-on-a-stick is restored. This pie pop mold lets you bake mini pies and fill them with anything from fresh berries to Nutella to meat (or, if…

A Card By Any Other Name Would Not Smell As Sweet

Paperse just made gift-giving a whole lot easier. This thick, paper card transforms into a pretty, little vase. Just write your personalized message, fold along the lines and put flowers in the vinyl tube, which fits inside to keep buds fresh. The only thing Paperse doesn’t provide are the flowers and the words. But you…

I Am Andrea Crews — And So Are You!

Earlier today, I was minding my own business doing some Internet trolling, when I happened upon a friend of a friend’s website. Andrea Crews isn’t a person, though, it’s an art collective, with fashion, music and performance. Now they’ve created a book that encapsulates everything the diverse collective represents. With contributions from Twin and Twin,…

Ain’t No Party Like A Gatsby Party Cuz A Gatsby Party Don’t Stop

We’ve been waiting not-so-patiently for the Christmas release date of the latest movie incarnation of “The Great Gatsby” ever since we saw the amazing trailer (seriously, could time move any slower?!). In the meantime, we’re going to show our Gatsby street cred with this amazing tank top, which should instantly make us the coolest attendee…

Boscia’s Cooling Eye Balm Smooths Over Last Night’s Wounds

I wake up to my signature puffy eye area every morning, without fail. It just so happens that my very favorite things are, in fact, the things that cause puffy under-eyes in the first place: salt, alcohol, coffee, contact lenses, staying up late, black eyeliner in my waterline … the list goes on. I’m not…

A T-Shirt For The Trekkie/Reality TV Junkie In Your Life

In other words, a T-shirt made for yours truly. Every time I watch “Star Trek: The Next Generation” — i.e. almost every day — and an episode with the Cardassians is on (not as often as I’d like, as I think they are highly underrated), I have to remind myself that they are not, i…

A Killer Novel About Marriage

For the last few days, I’ve barely come up for air, I’ve been so engrossed in reading Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. A clever and cool thriller, the book is about a woman named Amy Dunne who goes missing on her fifth wedding anniversary and her husband Nick, thanks to his odd behavior and a suspicious crime scene, quickly…

The Third Bloom’s A Charm

I love keeping single stems of flowers around the house because they’re beautiful, whimsical, and way cheaper than buying a whole bouquet. This awesome bud vase lets you choose three perfect stems at the flower shop (or, if you’re lucky, from you backyard garden) and display them together in a wire basket. Wouldn’t this be…

Tap Water Has Never Tasted Better

My sweet, dearly departed grandmother Colleen and I had many things in commons: a love for gossip magazines (she called them “the trash”), the TV show “Perfect Strangers,” and mall Chinese food, for example. We also shared the habit of not drinking enough water. In fact, my grandma used to wrinkle her nose at the…

Jewish Rosaries For Cool Jewelry Without The Sacrilege

Religious symbols are not usually my thing, but when it comes to denominational jewelry, I’m all in. I may have had a bat mitzvah, but I still love to drape myself in all manners of Jesus paraphernalia, particularly rosaries. Plastic rosaries. They’re cheap, colorful, irreverent, and more than a little bit disrespectful, which is kind…
