Pinch Me! Green Tech for St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick's Day Gadgets

I’ve never been big on celebrating St. Patrick’s Day… there’s no catholic or Irish in my blood, so it always seemed a little off limits, even though like many holidays it’s become just as much about iconic imagery as it is about anything religious (Shamrock Shake, anyone?). Lately however, it’s charm is winning me over— I just learned why you get pinched on St. Patrick’s Day, and it’s adorable! Sorry I’m a bit late to the game: Did you know that…

Dyson Made a Hair Dryer That Totally Gets Me

Dyson Supersonic

OK let’s be clear. This is a sponsored post about Dyson’s new Supersonic hair dryer. They asked me to spread the word that it’s a pretty cool piece of beauty technology, and that it’s available at Best Buy. And I say it often, but it bears repeating: I don’t review products on this site that I don’t love, or wouldn’t recommend.

When you’re married as long as I have been (it will be two decades this spring, which…

Shoes my feet would like to wear this spring, please.

Spring Shoes

The weather is cats-and-dogs rain in Los Angeles. And this week I’m in New York City, where it’s… also raining. It’s enough to make a girl want to escape into the wonderland that is e-commerce— sitting in my hotel room, I’m dreaming of spring shoes I’ll be hopping around in when the weather is a little less doomsday and a little more delightful. I’ve been lusting after some of these for a while, and some have just caught my eye. All…

The 5 winter trends I’m living in this season

Winter Fashion Trends

As the weather gets chillier (yes, even in LA) I’m yearning to be wrapped in toasty layers. Also, I can’t stop shopping— Black Friday and Cyber Monday really did me in (of course I shopped for plenty of gifts, but ended up with tons of slashed-price goodies for myself). Here are some of the winter fashion trends I’m digging, and some stand-bys that, as far as my closet is concerned, will never go out of style. Shearling and Sherpa Whether it’s…
