Forget About It

Forget About It

We’re convinced we’re going to be one of those old ladies who calls all her grandkids by the wrong name and misplaces her glasses on top of her head.  We simply have no retention skills—we blame it on living a little too large in college.

Thankfully our bunk brains have Gift Elephant, a novel little site that allows you to track the gifts you give and receive, remind you of special occasions, and even help manage your thank-yous.

Playing Dress-Up

Playing Dress-Up

Vintage rocks, but sometimes we find ourselves floundering between vintage chic and vintage geek. It can be downright difficult to pull off killer period pieces without looking like we’re playing dress-up in Great-Aunt Ruby’s closet! Luckily there’s Dressing Vintage.

This online retailer features a sweet selection of fashion and accessories, as well as a handy how-to on buying, sizing, and caring for your divine designs. Trust us, with this site as your guide, you’ll be mastering the vintage vibe in no time!

Hot Mama

Hot Mama

Our aunt had a sheep magnet on her fridge that read, “Ewe’s not fat, ewe’s just fluffy.” Oof. Well, we’re a little fluffier than we want to be, and with the holidays fast approaching we could be in big diet trouble.

Thank goodness for the Mother Tucker collection from Belly Bandits. The tank tops offer three zones of tummy-tightening compression and a three-inch anti-roll bottom to keep muffin tops in place. It keeps your holiday splurges secret!

Wig the Dog

Wig the Dog

Recently, we were chatting with an old friend about things we use to do together as kids. We’d cook in our Easy Bake, roller-skate along the driveway, dress up our pets… wait, we still do that.

It’s true—we have all sorts of cute clothes for our pooch, but there is something he doesn’t have—and must (though bummer we didn’t discover it before Halloween.) A fab wig. We think these fashionable coifs from Total Diva Pets are just the treat!

Make the Postman Blush

Make the Postman Blush

One should never underestimate the pick-me-up power of getting a surprise delivery in the mail. An unexpected “Thinking of You” card or little treat from a friend makes our whole day. So naturally, we find the idea of Panty by Post brilliant.

Get a monthly subscription of decadent French panties by Blush in the buy clomid online mail—once, six times, or every month for a year—your choice! What a fun, sexy surprise for you or a friend.

Music to Our Ears

Music to Our Ears

We almost couldn’t believe our ears! Portland Radio Project, the new online music stream with Rock/Folk/Blues (including local artists) has no commercials at all! It’s the brainchild of our friend Rebecca Webb and her team of DJs – actually playing the music (and not the same annoying song over again)!

This makes us misty for our old radio days with Rebecca (shopping segments where we’d go on a nationwide search for truly enhancing, sometimes stick-on, undergarments…but we digress…) Anyhoo, you mustcheck out prp.fm: our radio dream come true!

Neat Feet

Neat Feet

Mark our words—we will never wear those creepy “toe” shoes. But the idea is pretty rad, especially when we think of all the things we do barefoot, but would really rather not be barefoot for. (Hello, yoga.)

These “Dojo” indoor shoes from Sockwa are just what we need! We wear them for Pilates—they slip on, feel like nothing, and keep our feet clean while we get a good grip. Just pop ’em in the wash later. Cute and genius. No toes about it.

Fluff and Fold

Fluff and Fold

We’ve got a long list of boozy tricks to make any party rock the hizzy, but when it comes to décor, we often get stuck after “setting the table.”

Prost to the Host to the rescue! They create absolutely adorable tissue-paper poms in an array of gorgeous colors. Just fluff and hang to create a festive atmosphere for any occasion, then fold them up for easy storage/future use … but we might leave ours up permanently…

Don’t Leave Home Without Them

Don’t Leave Home Without Them

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.
