Urban Outfitters shower curtain photo

I can’t be the only one whose bathroom looks like an episode of “Hoarders: Beauty Product Edition.” But this stowaway shower curtain from Urban Outfitters features four mesh pockets for all my crap-hound needs: the pockets are big enough for various and sundry makeup, brushes, and hell, even a roll of toilet paper if you’re so inclined. Plus, the curtain is washable cotton, so if any of the gooey goodies explode, it’ll be easy to clean. Rub-a-dub-dub, girl! [$44, Urban Outfitters]

On The Rocks

As springtime comes, it’s time to start thinking about all the parties you’ll be throwing and the booze you’ll be consuming. We’re thinking frozen margaritas with no salt, please.  Grab a pack of 20 Jonathan Adler cocktail napkins — they come in pink for  margaritas, blue for martinis and green for scotch — and you’ll be the hostess with the mostest all summer long. [$5, Jonathan Adler]

Sweets For The Sweet

If you’re lucky enough to live near a patisserie that makes macarons, then what are you doing at your computer reading this?! For the rest of you: feast your eyes on this adorable macaron flavors menu chart based on the tasty cookies from the Laduree bakery in Paris, designed by artist Laura Row. You can order a digital print of her charming macarons or even a set of notecards.  Whether you’re weak in the knees for chocolat or caramel fleur de sel is more your jam, anything you do with this menu is sure to be sweet.

I have a lot of makeup, and it is one hell of a mess. I can never seem to keep track of anything, even in my delegated makeup bag, which is constantly overflowing and in need of serious reorganization. I can’t live this way anymore and I know I can’t be the only one! It seems I’ve dumped my kit onto the floor in a frantic search for eyeliner for the last time, because today over at QVC, I discovered this Tabletop Spinning Cosmetic Organizer. It claims to hold up to 100 pieces, and includes specially allotted space for things like compacts and lipstick tubes. Where has this thing been all my life? I’ll take five, please. [$27.50, QVC]

Too far, furniture designer. A Facebook bed goes too far. Facebook already dominates our life in making it all-too-easy to stalk our crush and our ex. It’s not something that needs to rock us off to Never Never Land as well. Fortunately, this Facebook bed is only a mockup. (Oh, and insert-your-own-”poke”-joke here.) [Neatorama Keep reading »

Domestic Inspiration: French Kitchen

Bitchin' In The Kitchen
All the Frisky's recipes and tips for Bitchin' in the Kitchen. Read More »

Growing up, my mother always decorated our home in a Provençal fashion, so I have an inborn love of the elegant style. I’m also infatuated with the idea of a French kitchen, though my culinary skills are limited to microwavable rice in a packet. In my opinion, there is no culture more inspiring than the French. I’ve never been to France and I don’t know many French people, so my idea of the country is more of, say, an educated approximation than a real understand. But so what, I say.  Whether you’re making a bowl of cereal or a delectable coq au vin (in which case I will be right over), you can have a touch of the blue, white, and red in your home too with these dining and kitchen wares. Let that le drapeau tricolore fly!

Why, Hello, Couch Of My Dreams

moody couch

I hate to diss your grandma’s Afghan, but it ain’t got nothing on this “Moody Couch.” That’s what designer Emelie Ernesting called her bed-cum-blanket-napstravaganza piece of furniture which looks like the warmest place ever to hibernate during the winter months. It’s the Snuggie of futons! The Slanket of couches! How long until IKEA brings out the $199 knockoff version? [Apartment Therapy]
