The Fragrance Is Tops

The packaging alone could have sold us on this TokyoMilk Wrapped Soap, but then we sampled the fragrance and knew this soap was a must-buy. The "Minuette" bar features soft linden blossom and French lavender with a touch of mimosa, honey, and tea rose. It's a light scent that's sure to linger and make you…

Cheapskate: American Eagle Outfitters Summer Clearance

Some items at teen and young adult-focused stores can be ageless, believe it or not. American Eagle Outfitters does a good job of providing pieces an adult woman would want to mix into her wardrobe. The retailer also is excellent at lowering the prices. Check out the pieces we want, after the jump, and remember…

Maxi Mouse Pad Makes No Bloody Sense

A maxi mouse pad. Why? Described as a "great gift for you and it will spice up your computer," this mouse pad is shaped like a "sanitary towel" and I suppose would best be accompanied by a bright red mouse. Not to get practical over something so ridiculous, but it seems to me this mouse…

Cheapskate: Free People Accessories Sale

Free People is all about the boho-chic look and is very good about not making women look like hippies stuck in the late-'60s. But today, I took a closer look at Free People accessories, which have a bohemian vibe and look more expensive than they are -- especially since there's a big ol' sale going…

One of our regular readers, Laurel, is in a bit of a bind. She has a few weddings to attend this summer, but hasn't anything to wear. Plus, she doesn't want to spend a fortune on a dress she might not wear again after the summer slew of weddings is over. When you're i…

The Little Bra Company Focuses On Your Little Ladies

I found the prettiest bra while trolling for lacy lingerie the other day. It was delicate but sturdy, lacy but not cheap-looking, and I wanted it. Unfortunately, it's made by The Little Bra Company, which a saleswoman told me focuses exclusively on A and B cup bras. My loss, your gain, Itty Bitty Titty…

With Poo-Pourri Your Poop Doesn’t Have To Stink!

What goes up must come down. What goes in must come out. The truth is, everybody poops, but it's embarrassing for some to go in unfamiliar surroundings, like your new lover's place. Now you can poop anywhere without being embarrassed. Single? Think about this: You're on the way to work one morning and you need…

The unofficial start of summer begins today, and it's time to stock up on shorts of all lengths. Short-shorts can look cute with flat shoes.

Beauty Test Drive: Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

We're generally pretty skeptical of any beauty product that claims to fix up our messy bits while we sleep. What happened to the whole beauty is pain concept? Suddenly beauty is supposed to be just easy? Well, apparently so. Kiehl's new Midnight Recovery Concentrate did, in fact, have a visible effect on my face overnight.

Genius: A Product To Fight Humidity Hair

Summer is a favorite season in the beauty category (shimmery self-tanner, anyone?) but also one of the most problematic. When it comes to vacation hair, the beauty books seem to have it down: go for that beachy surfer girl thing. But what about dealing with the elements day-to-day? We're talking humidity hair, that…

Weekend Wear: Kim Kardashian’s Summer Concert Look

Kim Kardashian has been a fashion force since she landed on the scene as a result of her now-infamous sex tape. But even before she became known for her other talents (or lack thereof, depending on how you look at the situation), Kim worked as a stylist. I think Tim Gunn'…

Pass Some Whisky Stones Over

We're calling it—the lady's drink of 2010? Johnnie Walker Black on the rocks. Unexpected, sexy, impressive. So, let's talk serious scotch for a second. Ice can easily ruin a fine malt, either by adding weird freezer taste to it, or simply by diluting it too quickly. Purists will want to check out these whisky stone…

Hope Someone Gets My Message In A … Pill Capsule

In our digital age, it's easy enough to sext or send naughty digital pics. However, we'd hardly call that way of communicating romantic. Instead, try these cute Poketo capsule letters, which let you write something sweet on a tiny piece of paper, roll it up, and put it in a plastic pill-like container for your…

Snake Ear Wrap: Creepy Or Chic?

I normally stick to simple hoops or tiny stud earrings, so it's a little odd that I'm so drawn to this elaborate snake earring. I just can't help loving how it winds around, going through a regular hole and wrapping itself up the ear. What would you pair with it in your other ear?
