Etsy Spotlight: Cute Pencils For Virgins Who Can’t Drive

It's been forever since I actually used a pencil (do I still remember how? Kidding! Kind of!), but after seeing this awesome set of hot pink "Clueless"-themed pencils, I'm ready to bring graphite back into my life in a big way. I actually used to have one of those feather pens that Cher uses i…

Etsy Spotlight: A Trendy Pencil Skirt Made Just For You

The most common response I get to posts like How To Curb Your Fast Fashion Addiction (and something I struggle with myself) is how hard it can be to shop more consciously/ethically on a budget. Sometimes it seems like the there are the $10 dresses at Forever 21, the $300 handmade, indie designer…

Etsy Spotlight: Starry, Starry Ears

The boutique where I work on weekends has some pretty crazy ear cuffs in our jewelry section, big ol' things blinged out with rhinestones and crystal feathers. True statement pieces.

Etsy Spotlight: Words Of Wisdom To Wear Around Your Neck

If there's any three-word phrase that can instantly calm my control freak, perfectionist self, it's "Let it be." I love the sentiment. I love the song.

Etsy Spotlight: The Most Delicious Kind Of Still Life

Scientific studies have shown that looking at original art activates the rewards system in your brain. My personal studies have shown that eating a donut does too.

Etsy Spotlight: “Magic” Lotion Bars For Your Sad, Dry Skin

The cold, dry air of this winter has been wreaking absolute havoc on my skin. I've been going through gallons of lotion trying to soothe my dry legs, chest, and elbows, but I've found many deep conditioning lotions to be too greasy, while quick-drying formulas don't really do anything. These organic lotion bars I found…

Etsy Spotlight: Stackable Initial Rings

I thought I would eventually get tired of the initial jewelry trend, but it's been going strong for, what, 20 years now? And I'm still totally into it. The feminine script on these handmade 14kt gold rings is so pretty, and they look even better stacked. At $50 a piece, they're not…
