Sondra Roberts Clutch
I wouldn’t know which one to get, I like all three colors. There’s a blue and black one too. They are made of lucite (plastic), and remind me of Legos. These are at Nordstrom for $90 or on the Sondra Roberts website for a lot more. *Update - I caved and bought the white one. :)
Elephant Tea Pot
This is supposed to be at Target, it’s part of their Calypso line, but whenever I go there, they never have it. Cost Plus World Market has something similar in white.
$39 on www.getheadcase.com
Sonia Kashuk Designer Brushes
I think these makeup brushes are lovely. They are sold individually at Target for $12.99 and up.

I love the look of these leather MacBook cases. It looks like a book, but holds your computer. Find them at twelvesouth.com for $80-100
Lacoste Goa Watch
I just like the colors.
Kaboosh Knife Block
Even if you have a bunch of mismatched knives, you don’t have to worry about them fitting in the correct slots. The Kaboosh knife holder has hundreds of long plastic strands that let any size knife slide right in. $40 at Bed Batch & Beyond
Skeleton Key Bottle Opener
These make great gifts. If you see them, you must snatch ‘em up fast because they sell out quick! I’ve been trying to get these since November, and I finally just got them now, five months later. At only $7.99 each, they are way under-priced and you can afford to buy all three. Sold at Cost Plus World Market
My sister owns one of these and it’s awesome. I am amazed at how the images appear even when it’s off. Who wants to stare at a bright screen all day anyway?
I saw these at Nordstroms. Love! Christian Louboutin
I would totally rock this - Kate Spade Newspaper Clutch $125
Steve Madden Reusable Fabric Tote
I’m all about reusing and recycling. When you buy a pair of shoes at Steve Madden, you get this enormous fabric shopping bag to haul your stuff home! This really came in handy during my latest move. Unlike other fabric totes, this one is so big, I can fit myself in it and it won’t break - because I often need to be carried around in a shopping bag. It’s also super lightweight...
Jumping on the mini taco craze, Taco Joint fills the old Mini’s space in Lincoln Park. Taco Joint has won my heart as my new favorite taco place, even beating out Big Star. plus they’re slightly larger and more to choose from on the menu. Might I suggest the barbacoa, elotes, flautas, and prickly pear margarita.
Vapur Foldable Water Bottle
Water bottle that collapses when not in use because it’s a pouch. $10 at Macy’s
The wool felt acts like a wash cloth and shrinks along with the soap. When the soap is gone you can cut it open, insert a new soap and reuse it. $14 from Anthropologie
Grass Charging Station
A place to rest your electronic devices while you charge them. Basically it just hides cords. $30 from Kirkkerland
Beam Mug from CB2. $3
This is from a couple seasons ago, but it’s still a favorite. I don’t wear it out if I’m afraid someone might spill something on it. $300
Simply Vera Necklace
I get lots of compliments on this. It’s covered in tiny beads that look like sprinkles. $15 at Kohl’s
Carnaby Hollywood Vase
Jonathan Adler is my new favorite designer. He makes these super cool patterns and all kinds of fun things for the home. This vase is actually a lot smaller in real life. $50
Cashmere Scarf and Hat
It’s nice to have a few really nice things, like a nice cashmere scarf and hat. My boyfriend bought me a really nice one from Club Monaco a couple years ago and it’s super luxurious. This is not the picture of it, but it’s similar.
Tony Wurman Bucket Vase
This looks like glass, but it’s actually made out of hot glue! $200 at Room & Board
The Lion King Play
I saw this at the Cadillac Palace Theater. Hakuna Matata baby!
Simple Times - Crafts for Poor People by Amy Sedaris I found mine for $10 at Urban Outfitters!
I have the french version and I love it. It’s super easy and fun, and it only takes 5-30 minutes a day.
These are my workout shoes. At only 2 ounces per shoe, they are super light and have breathable mesh.
I would NEVER wear Crocs, but I do wear these cause you can’t tell they’re Crocs. They are super lightweight and comfy, and you can hose them down or rinse them in the ocean like I did in Cabo if they get dirty. $40
Gravis Lily Shoe
These are my favorite shoes. Sometimes I have nightmares that they get dirty and my favorite shoes are ruined forever. I won’t wear them if it’s raining, I’ll take a cab to preserve them. Got these from the Burton store.
Hunter Original Tall Gloss Boot
These work so well my boyfriend got a pair too, not in pink though. Your feet get cold in these so I suggest the fleece socks sold separately. $120 on Zappos.com
Barbie Necklace by Tarina Tarantino
I know this looks like a cheap crappy kids necklace but it’s not. I won’t say how much I paid for this little gem, but it’s in the triple digits.
I don’t know when I’m gonna wear this but gotta have it. Who knew American Eagle had cool shit? $60 at American Eagle
Microwavable Neck Wrap
You can get these for around $6 at Home Goods or TJ Maxx. You heat them in the microwave and put it on soar muscles. I use it whenever I pull my neck or back. It’s filled with rice and smells like lavender and chamomile.
J.R. Watkins Hand Soap
I’m willing to splurge on a bottle of hand soap when it comes in such cool packaging like this. This and the lavender both smell lovely. $4
Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion
This hair styling product goes on as a powder then quickly transforms into a liquid-like substance that adds volume and hold. Smells like a spa too. $23
Elf Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder and Brush
Us unemployed people have to stay pretty and thrifty. Luckily Target has a line of beauty products called e.l.f. and it’s really affordable and good quality.
Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser
This smells really nice and clean, like normal soap, and it’s not at all greasy. $20 by Estee Lauder
Kiehl's Facial Fuel for Men
This is the secret to my super youthful looks. I know this is for men, but at $30 a tube, it’s gotta be good, right? Facial Fuel is minty fresh and the moisturizer is light and not at all greasy. Try the eye cream to get rid of puffiness and dark circles. If you’re not sure what to buy, they give out lots of free samples.
Electric Heated Blanket
Almost every Korean household I’ve been to has one of these. You can get them at the Korean grocery store and it’s totally worth the investment. We put ours on the mattress with the fitted sheet over it. Then you turn it on while you get ready for bed and by the time you crawl in, it’s nice and toasty. You’ll sleep like a hot sweaty baby. Everyone should have one.
If you’re too lazy to make your way up to the Korean Grocery store, you can get yourself a set of fleece sheets. No cold spots and you’ll sleep like a hot sweaty baby in these too. Find them at JCPenney.
Wood Weather Station
I saw this at a store in NYC’s Grand Central Station. It gives you all kinds of weather info from a chunk of wood.
We love our Yankee Candles. Big time. Especially the Balsam Cedar flavor for the holidays. The reason Yankee Candle smell lasts longer is because they use 90% more scented oil than other candles.
Method Wood and Floor Cleaner
The almond scent smells so good you will want to clean your floors! Find it at Target.
