We are so grody’d out by brown, dirty-tinged bar soap in public restrooms that strangers have used before us. Which is why we always carry F-1 Paper Soaps wherever we go.
Germies be gone! Paris, Barcelona, Rome, Puyallup…no matter where your destination takes you, take-along refreshing Paper Soaps to keep you clean. A single wafer-thin sheet will cleanse hands or delicate washables, leaving them lightly scented…without touching soap someone else has touched. Ewww.
Ever since we read the “Great Gatsby” in high school, we have wanted to throw a Gatsby-themed party for ourselves—all glitz, champagne and romance. And oh, the costume options!
After we stumbled upon these amazing head-bands by Ban.Dō, we decided this was going to be the year. Handmade with satin ribbons, vintage flowers, tulle and feathers, we are head-over-heels for these perfectly lovely adornments—so much so that we don’t even need a party to wear them—we’ll wear them every day with our jeans.
We love any excuse to dress up, and with the Kentucky Derby coming up this weekend, we’re going all out to shop for that quintessential statement hat.
Lucky for us, our favorite local lovelies at Bonnet Boutique have their own line of hats, perfect for our Derby party. They are actually designed, blocked, and trimmed right in their shop. We love the vintage vibe of their Edie and their quintessential derby Ava Belle; we’re off to the races!
We loved dressing up our dolls when we were little. Now we dress up our iPhones! We like her to look just like us – stylish, classy, natural and most definitely not trendy. We also love all things local, which is why we were giddy when we discovered Toast’s handcrafted iPhone covers. These gems are made in Portland, with laser cuts and etches in elegant wood veneers.
They are sold in select stores or we can go online and customize our own like the little designers we wish we could be!
When it comes to gifts, it’s not just the thought that counts, but also what thoughtfulness the gift is wrapped up in, so we always hit Kate’s Paperie for stylish outers that are as lust-worthy as the gifts themselves.
This lovely paper haven is loaded with the hippest selection of gift-wrap, with punchy prints sporting everything from flowers to pop-culture references. They also offer a bevy of cool gift tags, albums, and other paper-oriented goodies, making them paper perfection!
Okay, no secret, we looove shoes. We especially love wedges….because we can actually walk in them and they make us feel tall and skinny, as opposed to some of our heels that look great but the walking part isn’t pretty.
We adore these “Vogue Rose” wedges from Clarks Shoes sold at pedX. They have soft black perforated leather and a springtime raffia wedge. Vogue indeed!
We are going to Europe this summer and will be doing a lot of walking, and the thought of a fanny pack actually bleeped into our head for a sec. They’re just so practical. But then we’d be “that lady who wears a fanny pack” and we just can’t go there.
Instead we found the Traveler Belt at Gypsy Chic. It’s cool and practical, comes in different colors, and has lots of little pockets. Same idea, but WAY cooler!
We love Camp Hollyhock’s romantic handmade clothing, and we super love their new store. Just the ethereal feel of it makes us want to move in.
Yay for us, now they’ve created their very own home line so we can take all that girly-girl goodness and create our own Camp Hollyhock vibe in our own digs.
We’re obsessed with mascara. In fact, if we were stuck on a desert island, we’d eschew sunscreen for a constant supply of the heavenly black stuff. Our new favorite? Lash Sleeve Mascara. It literally covers each lash with it’s own sleeve and gives us gorgeous, star-worthy lashes that won’t cry off. (Run-ins with the ex can be rough!)
It’s even become a must-have among the Hollywood set. We’re certain that those fashionistas wouldn’t settle for anything less than fabulous, and neither should you!
