While we’re pounding the pavement (or scouring the Internet) for all the best fashion and beauty finds, we happen upon a designer who makes us want to own everything she’s ever dreamed up and created. We felt that way when we stumbled upon tenthings, a bohemian jewelry company based in San Diego. More
You know we’re not ones to shy away from talking about a pearl necklace but this time we’re not talking about that kind of pearl necklace. We’re talking actual pearls, draped with delicate clear stones on this bohemian three strand necklace. It is lovely, don’t you think? More
Does anything scream fall more than the combination of black leather and embroidered jacquard fabric? Well, maybe that’s a rhetorical question, but we’re still loving this Noah Oversized Bag from LaBosh Handbags. Something about it makes us want to dive into a pile of leaves. Or put on a big cardigan and sit by a roaring fire and sip warm cider. (So what if there are no leaf piles or fireplaces in our general vicinity?) More
Sometimes, you just can’t wait for that bottle of Pinot to chill peacefully in your fridge. Or you pack a Riesling for an afternoon picnic in the park and by the time you pop the cork it’s room temp. The result: an unpleasantly luke warm glass of white wine.
But suffer no more. This instant wine chiller from Ravi doesn’t require you to cool down the entire bottle of wine, it just brings the temperature of whatever wine passes through it to a desirable level. Throw it in the freezer and then stick it in your wine bottle like you would a cork. Your wine is chilled instantly as it passes through an inner, frozen stainless-steel tube. The more time wine spends in the Ravi, the colder it gets. And since not all wines are enjoyed at the same temperature, Ravi has a valve that controls the rate of flow of wine in order to regulate the temperature. Plus, it will keep its chilling properties for up to 90 minutes, and is efficient enough to cool down an entire bottle of red. More

A few months ago, a pile of new – and massive – phone books were dropped off in the lobby of my apartment building. Four weeks later, they were still there. Where will all these sad, unloved telephone books go? Perhaps to UrthBags, who takes old phone books and turns them into gorgeous bags, like the one above. More
“Gardenias.” “Vanilla.” “Some kind of dumb stupid flower.” Most scented soaps are for suckers. Who wants to stop and smell the roses when you could stop and smell the bacon? Solution found.
Remember how people used to send letters? Like, through the mail? Now you can live out your Abelard and Heloise fantasies with this super cute French Letter Bag. It’s also eco-friendly and is made out of jute. More
I can’t decide if these ‘panty purses’ are a cute idea or destined to give someone the wrong idea when they see you pull it out of your bag. Thoughts?
Things that smell good are nice. Everyone likes nice, good, smelling things. Except for maybe the vole/reptile people who live under the New York Subway that Bradley Cooper discovers in Midnight Meat Train (yes, that is a movie. And no, … More
A mojito is the perfect drink for a date – it’s sweet, sexy, and good-looking. And now instead of just drinking a mojito you can smell like one. This unisex fragrance from Velvet & Sweet Pea contains notes of dark rum, peppermint, and lime. He won’t be able to keep his mouth off of you. More
I’m super fickle when it comes to beauty products, especially mascara. But Terra Firma’s Stacked mascara manages to combine most of the things I love into one product – it has a huge wand, lasts a long time, and doesn’t clump. Plus, the mascara is fortified with vitamins and minerals, so I feel slightly less guilty about not taking my One A Day for the last month.
If only it came with a pony, it would be the best makeup ever. But I’ll have to live with having majorly sexy eyelashes instead. Oh, the humanity. More
