You‘re happy. But you could definitely be happier. (Your therapist, bikini waxer and personal shopper all agree).The solution: stop
thinking about yourself and start thinking about someone else for a change.Send a Happy Box. This service takes all the grief out of
present hunting. Simply choose one of several themed boxes and have it delivered the next day, beautifully packaged and filled with
heavenly things.The Busy Bee contains a leather-bound notebook, a box of triple-milled Royal Jelly bee soaps and a slab of bee-
embossed chocolate. Going Places has a travel journal, leather luggage tag and Penhaligon‘s shower gel. A Little Lift is bound to please
with its inscribed chocolate tile, a year of handmade chocolate delivered to the recipient‘s door every month and a pair of cashmere
socks.Of course, at around £65 each, the boxes don‘t come cheap. But, boy, are they cheerful. So much so, you‘ll probably be tempted
to send one to yourself.See? There we go again. Straight back to you.Happy now?

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.How I wonder how much you areBecause you dazzle oh so bright,And I really want to wear you tonight.Want a
little sparkler without the blinding price tag? British jeweller Cassia‘s stars start from a very reasonable £80 (and, okay, go up to a more
unreasonable £1,300). But when you know that each piece is made by hand in her London workshop (as opposed to some mass-market
sweatshop in Delhi), you‘ll like them even more.Crafted of 18-karat gold and silver, Cassia‘s little stars come plain, adorned with one
diamond or pavé set with multiple diamonds, on simple chains as pendants and on rings.If you have Christmas in the back of your mind,
then you may find it useful to know that Cassia also does private commissions using any stone you fancy.Need an award-winning
accessory to update an old party dress? Follow that star.

Semidetached in Walthamstow with 2.2 kids or Malibu mansion with partner No. 3?
Whatever your lot, give it a boost at new superclub Lot 55, opening Monday in the West End. Rocking it seven days a week, Lot 55
comes from Youcef Aden, founder of private club Hedges & Butler, who is also a former Hollywood set designer.Inside, it‘s cleverly
arranged like a real-life movie set: on each side of the street are small shops, bars and restaurants in the styles of various eras. Each
has a door leading into a private booth or bar where you can drink and mingle. There‘s also a private room with a fully functional bath
(let‘s hope the cleaning staff is efficient) and a lounge for those who want to chill.Fancy getting in on the act? You might like it.A lot.

Christmas = presents. New Year = thank-you letters (i.e., musings conveyed by script not screen). Paperplain offers stationery to inspire
the most reluctant of writers. (Show how grateful you really are. ―Thanks for the Cliff Richard cassette tape. I love it!‖) Sheets and cards
are cool and colourful; envelopes come lined in sweetie-coloured marbles and funky prints.The Veneto line is positively regal (―Thank
you for the spoiling weekend at Sandringham/Balmoral/Far Far Away‖), while letterpress cards come embossed with mini shoes (hint,
hint) or pussycats (―The white towelling socks are purrfect‖). You can personalise anything, too. With this lot, you‘ll surely convey an
attitude of gratitude. Which, come next year, might actually get you a gift worth gushing about.

Sure, you didn‘t reach first base until the age of 14, but lately you‘ve been making up for lost years.Big time.

You‘ll appreciate two fellow tarts then. When Davids Muniz and Lesniak arrived in the UK last year, they were mortified to find a lack of
homemade, American-style pies. So they got baking.Outsider Tart delivers to any address in greater London. Scones come in flavours
like cheddar dill, chestnut and chocolate oatmeal, while cakes have names like PMC (peanut butter, marshmallow and chocolate), Coke
(as in cola) and Democracy (with red sponge). There are tarts, pies and biscuits on offer, plus treats for dogs.The goodness doesn‘t end
there: this week, Outsider Tart encourages everyone to bake their own cakes, sell them to friends at work/school/the village hall and
send the profits to Kids Company.Keen?You big tart.

Road Runner, Lance Armstrong and Tim Montgomery are fast.But they‘re not a patch on Gordon Ramsay.
The unstoppable (or is that plain workaholic?) chef has lately revived classic Brit eatery Foxtrot Oscar, home of many a porky Chelseaite
since 1980. Situated a few doors down from his own restaurant, Gordon Ramsay, Ramsay often eats there. Now he‘s gone and bought
the joint.The new bistro, which officially opened for lunch and dinner yesterday, isn‘t much changed; it‘s simply sleeker all round, with
Ramsay Mini-Me, chef Mark Sargeant, directing a menu of traditional Brit dishes like potted shrimp on toast, fishcakes and wild boar, as
well as apple tart and locally sourced cheeses.Want a table? Be ready to move.Fast.

Going Dutch means:
a) sharing the cost of a meal.
b) eating Edam.
c) smoking a joint.
Now you can add wearing Marije Geursen‘s jewellery to that list. From textile brooches to bow-adorned rings, the Amsterdam-based
designer has something for every occasion — and all at a price that will surely make you high. Be it an African-inspired cuff, a windmill-
motif bracelet or a porcelain heart pendant, the bauble will be admired by all who see it.
What‘s more, Geursen sends every purchase in beautiful coordinating packaging. It‘s all very charming and incredibly easy to
wear.Encourage admirers to go Dutch on these trinkets.And you‘ll surely revisit the nether lands.
Since you swapped the TV remote control for a pair of kettlebells, you‘re fitter than fit. But as for your garden?It‘s on the verge of

matter how big or small.Whether you‘ve a lavish roof garden or a single window sill, they‘ll do the pruning, weeding and raking, plus

a clue.All waste is environmentally disposed of, and the use of weed killers and pesticides is avoided at all times. Pay for a one-off job or
book them on a regular basis.You‘ll soon possess a garden of Eden so fine, you won‘t Adam and Eve it.

Romeo and Juliet enter centre stage.
Juliet: Wherefore art thou going, Romeo?
Romeo: To bed with thee.
Juliet: Hang about.
Romeo: Jest ye not; I‘ve been hanging about for months. Tonight‘s the night, fair Juliet.
Juliet: But I‘ve a headache.
Romeo: Madam, I will have my way with you this very eve or else. And besides, when you see my snazzy new duvet cover, you‘ll surely
make an instant recovery.
Juliet: Why?
Romeo: ‘Tis the coolest thing thou ever didst see. I am most pleased with it.
Juliet: Really, my lord?
Romeo: ‘Tis the devilish illustration upon it. It speaks to my inner fetishist louder than any sonnet.Juliet: What larks, fair Romeo! I always
sensed you were a killer seducer. I‘ll join thee right away. Shall I sport my leather thong?Romeo: Thou art perfection, fair maid! How well
thou knowest my hopes and dreams! Let us depart this instant.The pair embrace in a passionate kiss, then exit.

Every so often, a product hits the market that‘s so genius, you suspect it‘s too good to be true.The latest: Tria, a handheld, at-home
laser hair removal device that purports to minimise unwanted body hair (so the company says, but anyone who‘s done laser hair removal
knows that hairs usually vanish for some years, and if they do grow back, they‘re lighter. So you‘re laughing, basically).Already big in
Japan, Tria‘s about to launch stateside, but Brits get it first.The hair dryer-esque machine must be held flat to the skin and works best on
fair skins with dark body hair. Shave then zap your legs, upper lip or bikini line every three to four weeks; after six to eight treatments,
you‘ll be smoother all over. At a hairy £695, Tria is an investment, but it‘s cheaper (and easier) than salon treatments or waxing.If you‘re
tight, rent the device out to friends by the hour. If you‘re generous, invite them round for a hair removal party.You‘ll soon be the one
who‘s too good to be true.
When was the last time you laughed so much you almost wet your pants?See special advance previews of Juno this weekend, and
you‘ll be in stitches. The film opens in cinemas nationwide February 8. This year‘s breakout comedy has received four Oscar
nominations including best picture and best actress and astounding reviews. In short: it‘s hilarious.
Like its star, Juno MacGuff (played brilliantly by Ellen Page), the film is quick witted and utterly lovable. After falling pregnant at the age
of 16, courtesy of school friend Bleeker (the adorable Michael Cera), the confidently frank teenager takes an emotional nine-month
journey into adulthood.Not that she‘s planning to keep the baby: she‘s going to hand it over to Mark and Vanessa Loring (Jason
Bateman and Jennifer Garner), an affluent suburban couple who are desperate to adopt. Things don‘t go as planned, but with a fearless
intellect far removed from the usual teen angst, Juno conquers her problems head-on, despite the bumps (or is that bump?) along the
way.It‘s a genius script that‘s jam-filled with brilliant observations and touching truths.Fancy a giggle? Click here to watch the trailer.
You‘ll laugh ‘til your belly aches.

You‘ll cope without chocolates, underwear or roses, but if you don‘t even get a measly note, you‘ll jump off a bridge.
Receive one of Andrea Kett‘s illustrated cards this Valentine‘s Day (or hell, any day, really), and you‘ll be more than chuffed. The
designs are finished by hand with crystals and glitter and are quite possibly the chicest things you‘ve seen.
Taking inspiration from The Cramps, P.G. Wodehouse and Russ Meyer (and that‘s just for starters), ranges include Frolics in the Pantry,
Naughtical but Nice, Afternoon Tease and Glamour Ghouls (for collectors of superior smut).It‘s all wonderfully witty and deliciously
done.Oh go on, admit it: you‘re already planning to send one to yourself.

Location: the Atlantic seabed. Three fish convene under a rock. Monkfish: Brethren, I‘m old; I cannot evade those nets anymore. It‘s
time to retire and offer myself up to the human platter.
Prawn: Oh, I‘m the king of the platter.
Squid: Back off, bottom-dweller. Where will you go, Monkfish?
Monkfish: Why, to fish heaven, of course.
Prawn: You mean Tom‘s Place?
Monkfish: Yes, if the great chef Aikens wishes. Opening today for eat-in or takeaway, it‘s set to be London‘s smartest fish ‘n‘ chippie.
Prawn: If you‘re lucky, you‘ll get battered in beef dripping to make you crunchy, then served with fluffy chips and mushy peas.
Squid: Or you might transcend to the bouillabaisse.
Prawn (scoffing): Unlikely.
Monkfish: I was hoping to debut on my own with lemon and capers.
Squid: Nothing‘s impossible — just remember my motto.
Monkfish: What‘s that?
Squid: I ink, therefore I am.
Monkfish swims off; just days later he forms part of a delicious takeaway dinner for a happy couple in Chelsea. All are pleased with the

bras and camis by the likes of Damaris, Buttress & Snatch, Yes Master and The Modern Courtesan. Racy biatches should investigate
raunchy Dutch label Der Kommissar, exclusive to Bordello, or Lee Klabin‘s couture feather-covered corset (soon to be featured in the
upcoming Sex and the City movie).There are eighteenth-century wardrobes and beds, Claus Porto candles and soaps and art deco
coffee sets for sale.This Bordello might just satisfy all your needs.And we mean all.

Last night you were
a) downing tequila with your boss.b) bonking your ex.c) neither or both (you can‘t remember).
So chances are you‘ll be staying in tonight. Celebrate your debauchery with a pamper session from Beautopia. They come to you, so
you won‘t have to show your guilty face to anyone.Have a firm body massage with Slav; an immaculate mani/pedi; or a Yon-Ka Paris
facial. (Beautopia has exclusive ‗at home‘ rights on this one, and it‘s worth every penny.) And should you plan to repeat last night‘s
antics later on, book a swift application of special occasion makeup combined with relaxing reiki.Because if you can‘t be good, would
you at least try and look it?
Lately, the closest you‘ve been to France is:
a) a French kiss.b) French fries.c) gawking at the Sarkozy newlyweds in Hello!
Now you have Bord‘eaux, a new French brasserie opening today on Park Lane.The large dining area, long bar, outdoor terrace and Le
P‘tit Cafe (a boulangerie and patisserie) provide the requisite buzz of a trad French resto, with slightly calmer staff. French chef Ollie
Couillaud (formerly at La Trompette, The Square, Chez Bruce and Tom‘s Kitchen) serves dishes such as plateau of fruits de mer, duck
confit, steak frites, with desserts like Baked Alaska or apple tart. Finalement, sip beaucoup de vin, nibble on Broyes du Poitou (a biscuit
from Couillaud‘s hometown) and chase with Hediard coffee.No, there‘s nothing like Paris in the springtime.But London will do nicely for
Poor Marie Antoinette.She got such a bad rep for her ―Let them eat …‖ proclamation, but perhaps it wasn‘t the cake, but its source, that
was the problem. Had she offered something from Cakefool, her tune may have changed. The South London-based company lets you
personalize your pastries — from white tiered wedding creations wrapped in pearls to bespoke themed birthday offerings, you‘re sorted
for every occasion. Welcome new babies with colourful iced blocks or profess love with an iced red heart. With sponge in flavors like
carrot, chocolate and tropical fruit, you‘ll get sweet results. Best of all, the edible artworks are delivered right to your friend, loved one or
colleague.Fancy making an order? Let them meet cake.

Those of the kind, rose, and brewsky variety aren‘t really for you.But a Budcozy? Now this bud‘s for you. A genius little invention born out
of frustration, Budcozys are the latest accessory for your iPhone (iPod for late adopters) to avoid knotted wires. Simply slide the earbuds
through the all-natural material (hemp, bamboo, cotton) and snap to separate them from one another. Tada – consider yourself hands
and tangle free.No, you will not look like Dr. Spock with a Bluetooth device attached to your ear. Budcozys are totally adorable and hang
like a super casual tie. Plus, neutral hues ensure they don‘t ruin an outfit and fifteen bucks means they won‘t break the bank. Which is
more than you can say for that sticky green.

Yes, imitation‘s a form of flattery. But you‘d rather those lazies conjured up their own style instead of mimicking yours. Get ahead of the
game with All Things Original. The new online boutique sells unique wares by independent British designers — all from a rare £5.
Whether you‘re looking to accessorize your home or your own sweet self, your selections won‘t be seen on everyone else (yet).After all,
where else can you find a stuffed bat or stoat brooch? And when did you last see any of your friends carrying a schoolgirl-sock pencil
case? Chart new territory with a map-covered coffee table and have the last laugh with a comic strip notebook.And when you encounter
a few copycats along the way, just grin.When it comes to this store of tricks, they‘ll never keep up.

Dirty talk always gets you going in the bedroom. And the basement (stop judging). Oh, and definitely in the kitchen.In which case, we
have four words for you: NatureMill. Automatic. Indoor. Composter. Before you get all germy wormy, listen up: There‘s no stench.The
appliance fits right under your sink (or in any standard cabinet), uses about as much energy as a night-light, and has a powerful carbon
filter that nips lingering odors in the bud.You fill it with up to 60 pounds of food or paper waste — orange rinds, junk mail, even that week-
old chicken chow fun in your fridge. Two weeks later? Out comes a tray of beautiful, nutrient-rich compost perfect for fertilizing plants or
gardens. Over time, you‘ll divert more than two tons of otherwise-landfill-bound waste.The computer controls all the sciencey stuff.
When the light turns red, just empty the muck in the backyard.Then feel free to roll around in it.Available online at naturemill.com.

Hide the women and children. You‘ve unwittingly turned into Bridezilla. And there‘s. no. stopping. you.Not your fault. There‘s a lot on
your plate these days. Just make sure you top off your to-dos with a bridal-parties soirée. Attend exclusive cocktail parties at boutique
London hotels where you‘ll sip cocktails and preview the designers, vendors and services handpicked to help you keep your creative
cool come ceremony time. Sample jewellery and accessory looks or your honeymoon trousseau, sort out your thank-you notes or flowers
or work out a health programme to get you in top aisle condition. Attend a party and you‘ll be entered to win a bridal planning package
worth more than £850. Just R.S.V.P. for you and yours (that‘s anyone still speaking to you at this point) and let bridal-parties‘s friendly
(and nonpushy) professionals pave the way for you to get down the aisle a sane woman. And that‘s something to roar about.
You‘re partial to a spot of baking.You never say no to sweets.And you‘d rather have tea with Charlie and Lola than the queen any day.
Which is why you‘ll love Kate Tempest‘s framed prints, taken from children‘s‘ classics like Babar, Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh and
Noddy. You don‘t have to be a sproglet to appreciate them.The illustrations are sourced from damaged children‘s books published
between 1900 and 1980. Each is mounted, framed and labelled with date, artist and origin. The result is an heirloom that will hopefully
last forever. What‘s more, each costs from a teeny-weeny, dummy-sucking, puree-guzzling £22. We kid you not.

Once there was a lonely oat.Abandoned by his oatmates (some had become flapjacks; others, Hob Nobs), he awaited his big break.
One day he was approached by two sisters called Abigail and Fleur. They made Grasshopper porridge; but it wasn‘t really made from
grasshoppers.In fact, the porridge contained oats and milk and other organic ingredients, and came in flavours like chocolate, coconut
and date, and cinnamon and raisin. You had to add boiling water to the little carry-pot and the tasty porridge was ready to eat in the car,
on the bus, at a desk — or even at a table.The Grasshopper girls employed the oat for their porridge. He hopped for joy and didn‘t stop,
even when he landed in someone‘s belly.No wonder the human porridge-gobbler felt so warm and good inside.

Attn: Healthy Communication. We reject you. Gone are the days of sharing our feelings in person. And we say ―Boo. Hiss‖ to the ol‘
putting yourself out there.Now is the time of easy outs: breakups on IM, termination through e-mail, and dirty talk via hand signals. To
make things even simpler, there‘s Dis-missals, a book of 36 rejection postcards.Not sure how to tell him his excessive compliments
skeeve you? Ignore your therapist and send ―You know how when a fly lands on your arm and it feels kind of good, but then you realize
it‘s gross and slap it away? That‘s kinda what you‘re like.‖You bent over backward for him — and he just bent her over. Tell him to suck
it with ―I know that you cheated on me, and I just wanted to say that‘s fine.‖ The notes include a handy-dandy blank space for you to fill in
the recipient‘s name and sign off with yours.Sure, it may not be the most grown-up way to say it, but here‘s another thing we reject:

You‘re sexy, stylish and divinely feminine, so it‘s only natural that you‘ve fallen for a label that‘s just like you: Chloé. And to celebrate the
launch of Chloé Eau de Parfum, Net-A-Porter.com is giving away a selection of must-have accessories for spring.That means stunning
pieces in all the newest shapes and shades, including the hottest bag of the season: the Saskia tote. (And, no, you don‘t have that one
yet but you could.)In addition, Chloé Eau de Parfum is giving away the new fragrance collection, including a personalised bottle made
especially for the winner. Embossed with the winner‘s initials, it will be a one-of-a-kind heirloom that will last a lifetime.So get at it: sign
up here for your chance to win all of the above. And be the ultimate Chloé girl.

Heavy rainfall one minute, record-breaking sunshine the next. Confused?You and your wardrobe can‘t keep up.Invest in Isharya‘s
eclectic range of bangles, rings and earrings. Inspired by both casual California and glammed-up Bollywood, the label‘s already
scorching hot in the U.S., and now it‘s landed in the UK.You‘ll love Isharya‘s classic wooden cuffs, laden with sizeable gems that create
intricate florals, serpents and sunbursts. The entire collection features an array of colors and materials — from real turquoise to white
topaz, pearl and coral, so you can mix it up. Because this lot is sure to weather any outing well

Ready, okay.Hey, hey, it‘s time to cheer.(Clap, clap.)We have something that you should hear.(Stomp, stomp.)Bell‘occhio has a brand
new site (oh yeah),Full of stuff that deserves the hype.Say what? Let‘s get fired up!B is for bee boxes. And L is for loose leaf tea. C is for
chef‘s aprons.And we know they can‘t be beat.R is for ricrac. And P‘s for powder puff. M‘s for menu cards (uh-huh).And they‘ve got
plenty other stuff.Paper, crowns, and chocolates (oh yeah).Ribbons, wrap, and tags.Let‘s hear it for Bell‘occhio.It‘s a winner that‘s fo
sho.(Toe touch followed by a hurkey.)
Cock-a-doodle-do (in fact, many cocks do). Do you doodle? Do you?Allow us to introduce you to Lucymoose, creator of
Stuffyourdoodles. In addition to crafting bags and corsages, Ms. Moose transforms doodles into soft, squishy little figures made of
recycled fabrics.Pop your scribble in the post and soon you‘ll have an alien on your doorstep (other than the elusive Royal Mail postman,
that is). Once it‘s ensconced in your home/life, you‘re welcome to do with your doodle what you will. Cuddle it. Keep it in a cage. You
could even stick pins in it.Yes, it‘s a bit freaky. But judging by the oddball you‘ve just drawn …So are you.

Generally speaking, unless a doctor is giving you a diagnosis, rare usually means better.There‘s a reason rarities are so valuable —
they‘re notoriously hard to find. Not anymore. Add a sense of nostalgia to your literary collection with some one-of-a-kind volumes from
High Valley Books. Running out of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the shop carries a wide selection of rare and out-of-print editions specializing
in fashion, design, and decorative arts. You‘ll also find vintage copies of your favorite mags and photographers‘ collections.The
storefront is open by appointment only, though with the launching of the website, the endless cache of collectibles is at your
fingertips.Never thought you needed an original copy of the 1965 cookbook Oh, for a French Wife!? Or a first edition of Fredericks of
Hollywood 1947-1973: 26 Years of Mail Order Seduction? Maybe so — but once you start collecting these antiquated gems, you may
never be able to stop.Luckily, addiction is a disease you can live with.

Whether coveting a bespoke Hermès Kelly bag or ogling Dior couture, you appreciate the merits of high fashion. Sometimes, however,
you should look a little lower.Like Down Under.Sydney-based designer Josh Goot has won over many an Aussie with his magnificent
designs. Now they‘re available in the UK.Goot‘s signature style combines everyday sportswear with executive chic. From work-worthy
pocketed pencil skirts, easy tees and jersey trenches to less restrained splash-print dresses and multicolour stretch shifts, the collection
lets you be quietly prim and proper one day and attention grabbing the next.Which means it‘s just as easy to dress up.As it is down.

Your T-shirt collection reveals your sordid past: Coed naked volleyball. Oops, I did it again baby tee. A pit-stained, oversize, threadbare
number courtesy of an ex-douche.Let Ruby Republic tell your future. A collaboration of artist Misato Suzuki and skateboard aficionado
Megan Baltimore, the tees are subtly cool without being overloaded with cuteness.All eight graphics are printed on 100 percent cotton
vintage destroyed tees (no shrinkage, pals), and each one looks like something you‘d score at a Parisian flea market or out of your
fabulous bohemian Aunt Devon‘s closet.Choose from cheeky designs like a Japanese girl, a peacock, a zebra, and a cluster of roses. At
just $24 a piece, they‘re a real bargain.Making living in the present near perfect.

What with all those mirrors, BO-scented changing rooms and the arresting array of over-the-shoulder boulder-holders, the lingerie
department isn‘t your favourite place.So avoid it.
Dolce V is a new online lingerie and beachwear boutique selling brands like Chantelle, Cosabella, Damaris, Mimi Holliday and Spanx, all
of which are delivered to your door in a discreet but chic box.The clever interactive bra measuring tool ensures you order the right fit
without being felt up by a bossy septuagenarian. And the helpful hints for men should prevent your partner from purchasing yet another
itchy red lace ensemble more suited to a porn star.Try everything on in the comfort of your own home.And, for once, you‘ll want to linger
a little longer in your lingerie.

For the most part, you‘ve got your priorities straight. You put your paycheck toward rent, not shoes. And always opt for the Forever 21
knockoff.But when the rain comes, you can‘t help but reach for the cute trench over that hideous old yellow slicker (you have some
standards).Thanks to Priorities, you no longer have to sacrifice style for practicality: Their new Phoebe raincoat will have you praying for
stormy weather.Hitting just below the hips, the jacket is double-breasted with a hood, topstitching, shoulder epaulets, contrasting
buttons, and cotton lining. Color options include white, green, and yellow. It‘s gonna run you 200 beans.But looking good is a top priority.
Refurb. Refit. Redesign.Dull words at the best of times, especially when used to describe the facelift given to your local gastropub.But
with the relaunch of Soho‘s Cafe Boheme, things get interesting. The French bistro, which opens tomorrow, is as good as
nouveau.Situated next to Soho House, the spot is now owned by Nick Jones, who‘s appointed Ed Wilson head chef (previously at The
Wolseley and Almeida). Obvious dishes are done well, like eggs Benedict, salad niçoise and croque monsieur.It‘s a great hangout for
those who yearn to inhabit Jonesland but don‘t care to pay a membership fee. And best of all, it closes at 3 a.m.Want a swift pretheatre
supper? A post-clubbing feast? This joint is a great fit.

You don‘t go around sucking on everything offered to you.But you‘ll want to get your lips around anything from Lollyphile, a brand new
candy company with the mission to make the most uniquely delicious lollipops in the whole world.Currently your pucker can delight in
absinthe and maple-bacon flavors, but they‘re hard at work brainstorming other concoctions as well. Yes, folks, the absinthe variety is
legal (it contains an amount of thujone okayed by the U.S. government). As for the ingredients? They use only the highest quality —
organic, sustainably-farmed bacon; real absinthe; molten sugar; and no artificial flavors.If anyone tries to tell you that candy‘s just for
kids …Tell them to suck it.

Still waiting on that courier to collect your parcel?When you say express, you mean now.Demand the same from your makeup. Book
yourself a place at Clinique‘s Express Looks event for a one-on-one session delivering quick techniques for the eyes, lips or face that
can be incorporated into your hectic regime with ease.Plus, Clinique has invited top celebrity makeup artist Karen Mason to the Clinique
counter at Selfridges Oxford Street for two days only on Thursday 13 and Friday 14 March to advise you on the colours that suit you
best. Having worked the latest colour trends on many a celebrity, Mason will share her professional tips and techniques with you.Places
are limited so book early; reserve your slot by phone or walk in. Why not bring a friend for twice the fun?A reservation fee of £15 per
person applies but is redeemable against any Clinique purchase on the day. And guess what? Three free gifts are available after your
consultation: a travel-size Colour Surge™ Eye Shadow and Moisture Surge™ Extra Thirsty Skin Relief, plus a silver cosmetics purse to
put it all in.Even the delivery guy isn‘t this quick.

Enough with the avocado ice cream, naked barmen and cheese-filled chocolates.Want to impress your guests? Send them home with a
goodie bag.For this, put Memento to the task. The new company will source and/or design bespoke presents in quantities of twenty or
more. Prices start from a reasonable £30 a head and go up to the truly priceless.Whether you want to send friends home with a post-
party gift to remember or simply need to stock up the present drawer in one easy go, Memento will ensure you‘ve got something good to
give: like a handbound book, monogrammed dressing gown, personalised Easter egg or custom-made Marmite kit, for
example.Whatever you seek, it‘s in the bag.Goody, goody.

You‘re not a fan of sticky situations. Like when the aesthetician leaves residual wax on your nani-nani. Or when you pass out drunk while
eating peanut butter out of the jar. Super junky.
Which is why you will be overjoyed to learn about Honey Drop, the world‘s first nonstick honey.After searching the world (literally) for
nonmessy, all-natural, pure honey to no avail, a young gent decided to make it himself. And the Honibe brand was born.Each one is
made of 100 percent pure dried honey without any additives or binding agents. You simply drop it in tea or coffee, stir, and enjoy the
sweetness. If you like lemon in your libation, opt for the Honey Drop with lemon (of the pure variety, of course). Each one is individually
packaged, so you can carry them without risking an explosion of goop in your bag.Nobody appreciates a bad case of sticky fingers.
So what if you had too much bubbly and made out with an hors d‘oeuvre waiter in the back of coat check at your sister‘s wedding? At
least you had fun.And you won‘t have to do it 26 more times.Unlike the main character in 27 Dresses, the new romantic comedy from the
screenwriter of The Devil Wears Prada. New Yorker Jane (played by Katherine Heigl) is literally always the bridesmaid, never the bride.
And she has all 27 bridesmaid dresses to prove it.Reporter Kevin (James Marsden) thinks Jane‘s plight is exactly the feature story he
needs to climb the career ladder. But when Jane‘s sister Tess unexpectedly arrives from Europe and falls for Jane‘s boss (Ed Burns),
Jane is enlisted to plan yet another wedding.This one may be a bit tricky, though, considering she‘s in love with the groom.Makes you
glad all you got for your trouble was an inconspicuous hickey and a salmon canape.

You‘re rich. Successful. You‘ve got looks to die for. (No, really. Everyone says it.)But somehow, you‘re having trouble in the mating
department. Need a pulling aid? Join Ecurie25 and an entire fleet of ‗performance‘ cars will be at your disposal, day and nightIt‘s like
NetJets for motor enthusiasts: pay a yearly subscription (a mere £7,495) for around 35 days‘ driving time in something as flashy as a
Bentley Continental or Lamborghini Gallardo. (Don‘t be surprised if your hairdresser makes a pass at you).Splitting time between the
beach house in Barbados, the chalet in Gstaad and the penthouse in Brooklyn? Half memberships are available for fifteen to twenty
days, and you can drive the car anywhere you like within Europe.It‘s the ultimate in variety and suits those incapable of committing to
one model for more than a week.Which, come to think of it, may be part of your original problem

 A few years ago, a new spa opened somewhere in the UK every week.Then the inevitable lull.But good things come to those who wait:
specifically, Ushvani. Set discreetly in a Grade 2 Listed Edwardian property in Chelsea, the three-story spa opens today.Founded by a
Malaysian business woman-turned-Zenster, the place has South East Asia stamped all over it, from the imported wood carvings and
sculptures to the authentic techniques used in massages and facials. In addition, Ushvani has a plunge pool, scented rain showers,
steam room and couples room with its own private mini soak pool. It‘s not just a spa; it‘s a destination experience to rival some of
London‘s grandest beauty spots.Did someone mention a lull? It‘ll be the best you‘ve had in months.

Here‘s the thing: They‘re called intimates, yet there is no real bond between you and your lingerie.But you can start to build one at
Evlove Intimates (that‘s evolve spelled backward, in case you‘re wondering). Anyway, the site allows you to make a real connection with
your bras and panties.Let us explain. First choose a style (G-string, boy short, or thong on the bottom; bralet or cami up top). Then pick a
fabric (modal, lace, nylon mesh), followed by the trim (ribbon, braid, satin) and an applique (bow or flower). Now your work is done. Wait
three weeks time for your carefully selected underthings to show up.In the meantime, try not to hate on your current stash of
unmentionables.They‘ve stood by you through thick and thin, after all.
The clocks have just sprung forward, so now it‘s time for you to spring into action and get your skin ready as you count down to
summer.Summer waits for no one, which is why you need to start working on your tan ASAP with new Dove Summer Glow Beauty Body
Lotion +SPF15.This new lotion has all the same great benefits as the original award-winning formula plus sun protection as an added
extra. So now you can treat your skin to superior moisturisers, a fresh fragrance and a streak-free, natural-looking, sun-kissed glow, all
while protecting it from harsh UVA and UVB rays. (Multitaskers unite!)Or for those sultry summer evenings or special occasions, try new
Dove Summer Glow Beauty Body Lotion + Soft Shimmer with subtle self-tanners for instant radiance plus soft shimmer particles for
extra allure.So while everyone else is clamoring for some summer colour the old-fashioned way, you can ditch the sun (and the wrinkles)
and get that dewy golden look just in time for slinky sundresses, strappy sandals and picnics in the park.Don‘t be late; there‘s no time to

Still cringing about your star turn at the office karaoke party?It‘s not too late to recover the elegant corporate persona you‘ve worked so
hard to create.Consult Texas-born financier-turned-fashion designer Britt Lintner, whose confidence-inspiring collection will help put your
career back on track.The range consists of stylish and professional clothes: sharply cut shirtdresses, slick modern separates, classic
trenches and suitably sexy boardroom-to-cocktail party looks in luxurious silks, satins and wools.Ready to set yourself new fashion
targets? There‘s nothing wrong with aiming high.So long as you‘re in tune.

She‘s a 29-year-old media darling, genius book publicist, and all-around sweetheart, hailing from a nuclear family in upper-class
Westchester, New York. And she‘s real pretty.Seems hateable enough, right?And yet you‘ll be in lurve with Sloane Crosley after you
read her hilarious new memoir, I Was Told There‘d Be Cake.Crosley‘s short essays recount everything from an early ‘90s obsession
with Oregon Trail (been there, done that) to embarrassing attempts at a one-night stand. But our favorite of the bunch has to be a
hilarious play-by-play of the night an unknown someone defecated — that‘s right — on her bathroom floor during a small gathering of
close friends (a truly modern whodunit).Although the stories are set in New York, Crosley‘s plights are universally relatable and
described in a voice that‘s supremely witty and genuine. Of course. Bitch.

These days, between the paparazzi, mobiles and Facebook, there are some suspect tales being told by all.Including you.Create more
savoury memories with a 1950s-style photo booth from Boothnation. Available for hire for parties (choose The Classic or The Glitterbox)
the retro booths are kitted out with high-end cameras, sophisticated black and white film, state-of-the-art lighting — even built-in wind
machines.Delivered directly to any party venue anywhere in UK and set up in an hour, the booths are easy to use and totally foolproof.
Guests just have to pile in, strike a pose and wait for their passport-size images to appear.Get the picture?

Leftie: Yo, Rightie. You reek something awful.Rightie: Stank you very much. As do you, pal.
Leftie: I feel like I am locked in a monkey‘s cage against my will.Rightie: Well, One Star over there told me about these new things called
Fragrant Footings.
Leftie: Whoa, heel buddy. Talk to me.Rightie: They‘re insoles laced with essential oils that are released with every step you take.
Leftie: Dude. We need those stat.Rightie: Fo sho. They come in lemon, mint, and jasmine scents.
Leftie: I‘ll take any scent over that of toe jam. But wait, can they be worn with sandals and heels?Rightie: Totally. They have both trim-to-
fit and mini cushions, so they work with all shoes.
Leftie: How are we gonna get Twinkle Toes to foot the bill on this one?Rightie: Now you‘re overstepping the boundaries.
They say that money can‘t buy happiness.Pfft. Total crock.Especially now that you can buy Smiley beauty products online.The French
company infuses its goods with substances that purportedly work as antidepressants. (Hey, it‘s worth a shot.) A mix of theobromine
(blocks stress) and phenylethylamine (catalyzes a feeling of joy), the creations smell of bergamot, orange, and musk.Start your day off
right with the all-in-one washing solution, which acts as both shampoo and body wash, or douse your pits with the deodorant (no one‘s
happy when they stink). If the day‘s not going so well, spritz yourself with the psycho-tonic perfume extract, which has the maximum
dose of happiness. Decompress in the evening by dropping a therapeutic tablet into the bath.And if you‘re feeling overwhelmed with joy,
give your partner a rubdown with the massage oil. Or just leave him to his own devices. Either way, he‘s sure to find a happy ending.

Just like everything else in the world, perfume has gone to the slebs. Why anyone would want to smell like Brit Brit, we‘ll never know
(although Curious is an appropriate name if ever there were one).Follow your nose to CB I Hate Perfume, the brainchild of Christopher
Brosius, a true scentologist. Made in small batches by hand, Brosius designs every scent himself using oil and water as a base rather
than the usual alcohol.In this case, what you see is what you smell: Gathering Apples, In the Library, At the Beach 1966, and I Am a
Dandelion all pong exactly like, well, you know. The real fun is in mixing the scents that are appealing to you (Burning Leaves and
Cedarwood Tea, anyone?).And there is more than just perfume on hand. Up for grabs are Accords (a single scent that captures a very
specific smell), Home Sprays, Wardrobe to protect against moths, and Outside for repelling bugs and other little creeps.Like those
irksome paps.

Dogs and cats, Heather and Paul, airport security and a sense of humour.Some things just don‘t mix.Avoid bad combinations at Muddy
Cook, the online muesli mixery where you can customize your breakfast to include only the best bits (meaning no more early mornings
spent picking out raisins).Visit The Kitchen for recipes or get creative in The Mixery. Start with a base — options include everything from
Just Oats to Five Grain and Chocolate Bliss — then add the extras. Whether you want sun-dried bananas, wheat germ, hemp seeds,
puffed spelt or Gummi bears, you‘ll find your perfect combination among 85 ingredients.And for the finishing touch, personalize your
creation with a quirky name that‘ll be printed on the pack.So that it doesn‘t get mixed up, of course.

You‘ve thought about wallpapering your bathroom in a jaunty pattern. Then you thought about those wall decals that you never got
around to sticking up. (So you‘re lazy, big whoop.) Farmidable Wallpaper is something you can follow through on. The designy patterns
download onto your computer in less than a minute, so your desktop dons something fresh and exciting to look at. With 35 designs to
choose from, there are options for all tastes: Mod pods have Chalkboard, Samurai-esque, or Rain Lines. For prepsters, there‘s Buckin‘
Broncos, Thar She Blows, and Anchors. Go cutesy-kitsch with Owly, Rabbits Aplenty, or Crowns. And for shock value, Les Crabes,
Beetles, and Cat Eyes will spark water cooler convo.And since they‘re free, you can switch it up as often as you like. Which, in your
case, probably means never.

You like to knit.You also like to natter (read: gossip. For England).At Prick Your Finger you‘ll do plenty of both. The batty East London
boutique is run by best buds Louise Harries and Rachael Matthews: the former is a knitwear designer who‘s worked for Hoxton Boutique
and Gucci; the latter, co-founder of Cast Off Knitting Club, which weaved woolly chaos around the globe.Though it‘s not new, the store is
somewhat undiscovered. In it you‘ll find exhaustive knitting paraphernalia, from homespun Welsh yarns and ecoconscious needles to
knit-your-own-cigarette kits. It also hosts exhibits and classes, including spinning (get from Sheep to Shoulder in one easy move) and
Open Surgery (for unfinished projects that need help).Simply book in, turn up and get stitching.That‘s stitching, not bitching.

When you were a nipper, your favourite part of a museum was the gift shop.Go on, admit it. It still is.Soma Gallery‘s online shop means
you don‘t have to gawp at crumbling fossils and prehistoric poop to make a sexy museum purchase. (And in this case, we do mean
sexy.)Instead you‘ll find funky magazines, books and textiles as well as silkscreens by It‘s Pop It‘s Art. Ecowarriors can save the world
one letter at a time with Lisa Jones‘s environmentally friendly stationery, whilst cheeky friends will appreciate jewellery by Tatty Devine.If
you fancy getting down and dirty (and we don‘t mean digging for old bones), opt for a saucy Miss Budd makeup case.Getting a little hot
and bothered? Good thing it‘s all so very cool.

She‘s expressionless (no mouth and beady eyes). She‘s stylish. (That bow! That jumper!) And she‘s got a cute button nose.
No, we‘re not talking about Anna Wintour, darlings! We‘re not talking Kathy Lee Gifford. We‘re talking Hello Kitty!To be fair, Vogue was
prescient enough to put Hello Kitty on the pages of its June issue, and what we saw made our crummy day, well … more crumby.A Hello
Kitty toaster.That‘s right, toaster. In addition to producing all those pens, paper, and colorful bits that decorate your desk drawers, the
fine folks at Sanrio have decided to add a bit of whimsy to the breakfast table with an adorable pink-and-white Hello Kitty toaster. Priced
at around $35 (plus shipping) the breakfast box comes with six shade settings (from Icelandic white to Sao Paulo bronze), a removable
crumb tray, and a defrost mechanism.Best of all, the cute thang toasts a Hello Kitty face onto every slice.

Granted, the drapes match the rug. But the color scheme just ain‘t working — maybe because the whole matchy-matchy look is so last
season. (Apologies, LiLo.)Time to refurbish your special no-no place with a jazzy fall color: Put your triangle‘s tresses in the capable
hands of Betty, the first dye created especially for your down-there hair. The easy-to-use formula is safe enough for your sensitive lady
place. And if your orchid is wilting, fear not — Betty easily covers grays.Decorate your fuzzy éclair with a variety of icings, like subtle
auburn, blonde, brown, and black. Not enough options (or unsettling euphemisms) for ya? Feather your nest with FunBetty, an oh-no-
she-didn‘t pink. The dripless formula guarantees that no dye will sully your pee-pee‘s teepee, and your new plumage is more than
certain to attract plenty of male attention.So go on and wash that man right into your hair.

And now, a DailyCandy exclusive with the Ornamentation Firm of Bells and Whistles.DC: What an honor it is to meet the duo behind the
Hello Kitty toaster and pink pubic hair.
Bells: Don‘t forget the Happy Meal. That was us.DC: What of the rumors of a rift with Help, the new line of minimalist, gimmick-free first
aid?Whistles: Losers.
Bells: We pitched great ideas — SpongeBob acetaminophen pills, scratch-and-sniff bandages — but no dice. Some BS about how
people want great products without all the — well, you know.DC: Yes. And they donate 5 percent of profits to insuring the
uninsured.Whistles: Whatevs. I did take one for a headache yesterday, and it worked.DC: So you‘ll continue using their
products?Whistles: Hells, yeah. It‘s an election year.Bells: We need all the help we can get.
You spent all winter lying stationary on the sofa.The last thing you want to do now is crawl out of hibernation and begin to shed your
layers.Jump-start your body with the help of Kate Manning, a personal trainer who uses a trampette (that‘s a mini trampoline, not a
young tart) as part of her fitness programme. Kate‘s background as a dancer made her realize that running on a hard pavement can put
your body under incredible strain, while a trampette provides spring and less resistance so your bones and joints are less
impacted.Bounce back into shape with a personalized workout that includes cardio, strength training and stretching from £45 an hour in
any home, office, hotel or garden.You‘ll soon be jumping.For joy, that is.

Traditionally speaking, having sticky fingers means big trouble.Not so with Sticky Fingers Bakeries. What began as a San Diego-based
eatery has launched into a full-fledged business, thanks to the incredible demand for its homemade breads and pastries.They‘ve
concocted mixes made of the highest-quality, all-natural ingredients that allow you to whip up from-scratch-tasting scones, muffins, and
brownies in a jiffy (without getting your fingers sticky). Adorably packaged in bags with old-world graphics, the options span far and wide:
lemon poppy seed scones, mint chocolate chip brownies, Irish soda bread, apple date oat bran muffins, and kosher California raisin
scones.To-die jams and curds are the icing on the cake (or muffin or scone). Making for a sticky situation of the positive variety.

of unusual gifts.Whether you‘re looking for glass tea lights, suede babouche slippers or a rocking zebra, WhippetGrey has a selection of

Almodóvar, Dalí, Domingo (not forgetting Iglesias): Spain has produced some megastars over the years. Next, say hola to Patricia
Nicolás, a fledgling jewellery designer who‘s going to be big news. A Central Saint Martins graduate, Nicolás hails from Madrid, where

pendants, Nicolás‘s baubles add polish to any look. If you prefer something bespoke, e-mail a photo of yourself and details of the event
you‘re shopping for, and she‘ll create something beautiful for the occasion.Talk about a woman on the verge.

What article of clothing can you comfortably wear to the beach, to spinning class, and on a hot date?
a) Turban. b) Lingerie. c) Fanny pack.
Stumped? That‘s because you don‘t know about T. Santiago, a line of water-resistant and sweat-absorbent underwear that‘s totally sexy.
Such innovation hails from Argentina, where this unique fabric was discovered by the designers. South Americans have been frolicking
from the gym to the beach to dinner for years, but the line has just recently hit the U.S.Each pair of panties is one of a kind, mixing
various brightly colored patterns (polka dots, animal prints, paisleys, and florals) so what you get is a surprise (in a good way). Plus at
just 40 big ones a pair, you get serious bang for your buck. So don‘t get your panties in a wad, chica.
You‘ve waited all year for a promotion, all week for that stallion to call and far too long for the cable company to fix your TV.Time to get

strobe lights. Skills a little rocky? Professionals are on permanent standby to assist the uncoordinated. If all else fails, sit back and watch

reduced entry fee on Thursday nights for students, or take your own skates anytime to get a discount.Get ready to roll.Because
sometimes it‘s you who has to make a move.

Q: What‘s strong, sure and fresh from the fight?A: Fix-it Man.
This particular hero is just an honest bloke committed to solving DIY crime in Central London. No job is too small, apparently, for this
pink T-shirt-clad DIY master and his team. He‘ll deal with anything from grouting or radiator bleeding to assembling flatpack furniture or
installing a washing machine. Taking a tip from fellow heroes, he doesn‘t require a call-out charge. Fees are calculated on a half-hourly
basis, from £30.Founded by Scott Newman (one-time PA to the Duchess of York, don‘t you know), Fix-it Man is refreshingly efficient and
polite; he won‘t leave a mess and doesn‘t require tea or biscuits.He may lack some spider senses, and he won‘t arrive in a
Batmobile.But at least there‘s no more holding out ‘til the morning light.

Cue the synthesizers and turn the strobes on high.It‘s time for Soooooolid Gooooold, starring Serge Gainsbourg; Françoise Hardy; and,
get ready, Ernest Hemingway. (Dionne Warwick is nowhere to be found.)Just look at them, immortalized in their primes on unbelievably
soft, sheer T-shirts by Solid Gold Rags, crooning the ladies and gents from the bust up.The men behind the magic: Perry Shimon and
Oliver Kupper, artists, Angelenos, and self-proclaimed Francophiles (―Vote Sebastien Tellier for Eurovision!‖). They started the line after
being dissatisfied with other tees on the market.Don‘t wanna rock out with your celeb out? Solid Gold‘s also got a vintagey hot air
balloon graphic that will inspire a loyal fan base.And get this: Every shirt is blessed with holy water from a grotto in France.[Applause,
applause.]Isn‘t it about time you let Solid Gold put the rhythm in your soul?

come. How do you like them apples?

Forget the Punch and Judy show. There‘s a better performance in town.Opening today, The Punch Bowl is a revamped pub launched by
London‘s most awesome foursome.
Guy Ritchie, film director, pop star husband and the pub‘s most popular local, has teamed up with Piers Adams, veteran club owner and
all-round top geezer. The duo are joined by Nick House — king of clubs and visionary behind hotspots like Mahiki — and Guy Pelly —
charmer, jester and loyal royal compatriot (but that‘s his business).Together, they‘ve given the oldest watering hole in Mayfair (built in
the 1750s) a thoroughly British makeover. They don‘t fancy making it a big deal: this lot likes to keep things quiet.But with their
combined experience, they know that‘s the way to do it.And if you happen to pop in, they‘ll probably be pleased as punch.

Here‘s the thing about f*** buddies: They‘re great for one thing but really lacking in the love department. Fill that dearth of affection with
a Barn Buddy from the Longmeadow Rescue Ranch. A 165-acre haven in Union, Missouri, Longmeadow takes in abused and neglected
farm animals, rehabilitates them, and finds them new loving homes.For people who have the time and space, there are horses, goats,
rabbits, and even a chicken up for adoption. But living in a shoebox doesn‘t preclude you from helping out — just sponsor a fella who is
waiting for a home or resides permanently on the premises, like Amigo, a mini horse who travels to local schools to educate kids on
animal care. Or if you live nearby, you can volunteer to feed animals, clean stalls, and administer medicine. The experience is so
fulfilling, you‘ll feel your heart fill up with love. So go ahead and tell your other buddy to f*** off.

solution until crystals form, her unique designs have a limited lifespan.he collection of necklaces, bracelets and rings are all made to

because they begin to disintegrate before you tire of them.Still worried about skinny fashion victims stealing your style?They‘ll keep their
distance once they realize these baubles are good enough to eat.

Indulging in chocolate is not unlike a fling with your ex: it‘s comforting when you‘re feeling down, it tastes and smells divine, yet you
know it‘s a bad idea and one you‘re likely to regret.It‘s time you get the treatment you deserve.Head to May Fair Spa to sample a
delicious new range of chocolate beauty treatments. Try the chocolate body wrap — a heavenly scrub and massage with coco butter
and Cocoa Dream body oil. Or go for the chocolate steam bath. During this sweet ritual, you‘ll get lathered in coco butter and melted
chocolate for silky smooth skin, before entering a private steam room (champagne and strawberries optional).When you emerge with
glowing skin, he‘ll beg to have you back.Make sure you get your bittersweet revenge.

You love the fancy sharing dishes at Fino and often queue for the fresh tapas and buzzy ambience at Barrafina. You don‘t need to be
told that Sam and Eddie Hart are the current darlings of London‘s restaurant scene. So you‘re excited about their latest venture — the

members‘ club.It‘s a new direction for the duo, but it‘s likely the Harts will come up trumps.Again.

draw.When referring to the works of Sonia Hensler, however, the word‘s a bonus from the start. The Polish-born, London-based artist is

nickname ‗Dancing Queen.‘Now see how the pros do it in Mamma Mia! the Movie. The summer blockbuster weaves Abba tunes (the
ones that stay in your head for weeks) with the story of how bride-to-be Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) uses her upcoming nuptials to reunite
her single mom (Meryl Streep) with three long-lost loves (Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgard), any of whom could be
Sophie‘s father.Can‘t wait? See the fun-filled film before everyone else: Odeon Leicester Square (redesigned as an apropos white and

You‘ve got the big job. You‘re wearing the power suit. But when it comes to the power lunch?It‘s usually a soggy bacon sarnie eaten
alone on a soggy park bench.Pick up your briefcase and head to Devonshire Terrace, which opens in the city today. The venue comes
from the team behind The Admiral Codrington and Vingt Quatre, and houses a restaurant, bar and four private dining rooms — each
with terrace, Wi-Fi and plasma screenOpen for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the brasserie-style menu offers basics like salmon fish
cakes, pea risotto, lobster sandwich, and chocolate fondant.Prices are reasonable, so no one will know you‘re a rookie (unless you order
the £3,333 bottle of wine).For a power broker like you, it‘s the meal deal

We all dream of the day when the lion will lie down with the lamb.But what do you suppose will happen when the zebra lies down with
the bunny?That‘s just one of the bizarre combos contemplated by designer Chandi Lancaster. Her line of T-shirts and totes features
hand-drawn depictions of nature as it never actually appears, well, in nature.Starting with the aforementioned Zebra Bunny (bunny head,
zebra body), she moves into odder territory with designs like Jackalope Pattycake; Unicorn Mermaid; and a series of Rorschach-like
patterns made from the repeated forms of tarantulas, scorpions, moths, and other creepy (but strangely beautiful) crawlies.Of course,
she also makes frilly blouses in cherry red with white hearts or blue and a repeated rope pattern.But that‘s another animal altogether.

You‘re wearing four sweaters, super-skinny jeans, a grey sports bra and a novelty Christmas thong.So how are you supposed to try that
dress on, in front of that many people, without a curtain in sight?Check out Pret a Portobello. The new online ‗market‘ sells fashion and
accessories direct from Portobello Market and delivers them to your door. Browse virtual stalls for cutting-edge designs like Dahlia‘s
petal-topped flats, silk dresses by Ducie, and an exclusive range of beachwear by Zandra Rhodes. Want a good deal? The Let‘s Trade
section allows you to haggle with the online trader for bargains, so you can barter down to a price that suits. No kerbside moonie

Biggie said it best: I love my little nasty girl.Or, in our case, Nasty Gal.You‘ll be in lurve, too, when you see the new online shop‘s vintage
wares. Owner Sophia Amoruso carefully selects ‘80s-ish clothing, accessories, eyewear, and shoes, so you don‘t have to rifle through
musty old racks.Don‘t expect big names; do expect rainbow-colored frocks, playful rompers, acid-wash tights (hot damn!), and too-legit-
to-quit jackets. As if that‘s not enough, nerdy glasses, space-age sunnies, gladiators, and rad leather bags round out the mix.Of course,
that could all change tomorrow, as Amoruso stocks very limited merch (usually just one of each) and the goods go fast. But that‘s to be
expected from someone named nasty.

online personal training platform — will have you up and out in no time. Enter the online locker room and sign up for personalized
training programmes, motivational e-mails, healthy recipes, nutritional advice and an alcohol unit calculator — all for free.Of course, the

Regent‘s Park, cardio seems more enticing in the fresh air than a sweaty indoor gym.Not a morning person at all? Opt for the city
workout plan, where a trainer will lead a lunchtime class at your office.What are you waiting for?Go get it.

Susannah Lipsey went small town,Slowing down her vida,Stuck some feathers on a band,And called it Windy Freda.That‘s right. After a
six-year stint in NYC — dabbling in everything from theater to music to fashion — she packed up and moved to Marfa, Texas, for a
change of pace. Immediately inspired by the vibe and landscape, she began making headbands out of vintage hats, belts, and bras,
adding feathers to them. Friends oohed and aahed, and Windy Freda was born.Lace, flowers, fabric, and plumes are combined to create
ethereal headpieces that look equally as stunning with a wedding dress as a T-shirt and jeans.Each one is named after a Judee Sill or
Jimmie Spheeris song, as that‘s what Lipsey was listening to as she worked. The debut collection was influenced by 1940s movies,
1970s music, and Native America.Making each one a little piece of history.

Every head turns when she enters the room. Cameras flash wildly, capturing her perfectly disheveled hair, glowing skin and elusive
smile.Whether lounging with friends, spending a night on the town or dashing to another secret rendezvous, the exotic beauty is always
the center of attention.Miss Dior Chérie has everyone under her spell.Her secret? Her new scent: Eau de Printemps, a light citrus burst
of sun-drenched blood oranges delicately blended with Calabrian bergamot. Admirers can‘t help but fawn over the playful summer mix of
jasmine, neroli oil and rose essence. The floral fragrance dances through the air, radiating sheer beauty and sophistication.It‘s nature in
its finest form.Just like Miss Dior Chérie.

You‘ve been known to cheat (exams, board games, love: it‘s all the same to you). But these days you‘re finding it much harder to dust
your sins aside.Time to clean up your act?Enlist the help of Puur Eco Home Services, whose team of expert housekeepers uses only
nontoxic and biodegradable products in their tasks.Let them spruce up your home or office and they‘ll ease your conscience in no time.
Clear the air with the essential oil air purification system or opt for the bed service (you‘ll sleep like an angel in lavender-scented organic
linen). The ecofriendly carpet cleaning technique avoids harsh chemicals, while garden maintenance gives new meaning to a green
thumb.Feel like you‘re in the clear?Just don‘t mess it up.

If home is where the heart is, you need to fall in love.Consider Grace & Go your matchmaker. Whether you‘re seeking something dark
and handsome or soft and sophisticated, you‘ll find it amongst this brilliantly edited range of homewares and accessories.London-based
designer Jen Bowmast gives edge to humble kitchen accessories with contemporary block colours and patterns; her heavy-duty
Heavens to Betsy apron bears a sleek silver lace print, while her Midcentury Chairs tea towel is delightfully random. Cutesome cotton
babygrows add to the mix; all are made with good grace in Great Britain and don‘t cost the earth.Take a peek.It‘s a prospect worth
homing in on.
It finally happened: one too many pints one too many times. Last night wasn‘t pretty, so you‘re turning over a new leaf and becoming
teetotaller Or rather, tea total.Which makes sense since you discovered Blends for Friends, a company that produces personalized teas.
Just fill out a form with your, or a friend‘s, hobbies, interests, talents, nickname, etc., and master blender Alex Probyn will create a batch
tailored to your good taste.Each 100 grams of loose-leaf tea comes in a chic silver tin, complete with a personalised label. Order online
and receive by post within a fortnight to anywhere in the world; it makes an original thank you/get well present. And the company keeps
all information on file, so you can order repeat blends.Teatotally excited? True, your friends may make fun of your newfound sobriety.But
all‘s well that blends well.

Following the market makes you very, very sleeeeeeepy.But you‘ll perk right up at Poppytalk Handmade, a new online marketplace
stocked with goods from emerging talent around the world. To keep it interesting, there will be a different theme each month showcasing
a whole new slew of merch from different designers.Currently up: Home Sweet Home. Pick up kitschy beach photographs, an art deco
vanity set, vintage French cotton striped pillows, crafty-cool homespun yarn wreaths, framed intricate embroidery scenes, and felted
wool bowls and vases — all up for grabs until August 8.Next up is Back to School, so expect a well-curated selection of fashion and
paper goods to get you prepared for fall.As with any street market, the wares are unique and totally affordable.So you don‘t have to
worry about those dreaded market jitters

You‘ve tried miracle creams, painful injections, and expensive procedures. But nothing helps.You‘re still incredibly ugly.If you suffer from
retina-scarring, child-terrifying hideousness, hope exists. Not in a bottle but in a bag: the Ugly Bag, a revolutionary, instantaneous
solution to common repulsiveness. Just slip it over your horribly disfigured head and let your new life begin.Maria, formerly known to
friends as ―Vomit Face,‖ gushes: ―The side effects were difficult at first — sure, I miss being able to see stuff — but it‘s worth it.‖ JoAnne,
who for years could make a living only as an extra in zombie films, says, ―It‘s great! I really [words too muffled to understand due to
presence of paper bag on head].‖So don‘t delay. Because whether you know it or not, your ugliness is probably hurting you.And it‘s
definitely killing us.

It‘s the morning after the night before. You haven‘t made it home yet and you‘re about to embark on the walk of shame.Shield yourself
from uncomfortable glares and stares in a pair of retro sunglasses from AM Eyewear.The under-the-radar Australian label has Britain in
its sights. Queensland-born designer Simon Ponnusamy takes inspiration from the 1970s with his eclectic, off-beat frames. Styles
include the fuchsia Ali aviators; the glamorous striped Julzie specs; or the sleek white Bamford shades, which have lenses so dark they
work as mirrors.You‘ll look gorgeous.Even if you are seeing double.

Does your multiway bra leave you with a malfunction? Having trouble with catsuit camel toe?It might be time for a simpler all-in-one.Red
Maloo has it sussed with handmade wraps for technological toys and electronic devices. The folded pieces of thick coloured felt protect
iPhones, iPods and the like, and are more stylish than the average gadget glove.Transport your laptop in one of these sleeves, which
when unfolded also functions as a mouse mat. And if you are forever misplacing essential wires, the smart cable bags will help you keep
everything together.And stop your going to pieces.

Your average weekend is spent watching back-to-back episodes of 24, Entourage or (or is that and?) Lost.Need to get out more?Get in
touch with real life at Fforest, a luxurious new campsite set on a breathtaking 200-acre estate in Wales. There, you can experience the
pleasure of sleeping in the great outdoors without the hassles of regular camping (pesky bugs, outdoor loos, the constant damp).Tents
are erected on wooden decks with plush cooking and dining spaces. Choose the Nomad with soft futons and beanbags; Kata, a tipi with
woven straw floors; or the 20-foot Dome with bay windows, wooden floors and double bed.Adrenaline junkie? Try your hand at canoeing,
kayaking, mountain biking or archery. Or just sit back, relax and take it all in.Before you go back to TV.
You tease them incessantly; they embarrass you at every opportunity. And when you prepare to have it out with them, they hit you with
the love card.Dysfunctional family?Take refuge in the functionality (not to mention productivity) of Jude‘s happy unit. In a von Trapp style
production — think pasteurizing, not song — they create a delicious range of ice creams and sorbets in the barn of their family home in
Hampshire.With milk and cream from local cows, the creations come in flavours like Peach and Champagne Crush, Winter Warmer, and
Ginger Spice.In addition, the company supports local causes, donating 10 percent of profits to charity.Talk about honest family values.

You consider yourself to be something of an artist.ou know you could paint colourful dots in a line or fling dirty pants across a bed, if
someone would pay you a few million to do so.Unleash those hidden talents on Mini Moderns‘s new colour-your-own wallpaper. Choose
the Sitting Comfortably or Tick-Tock design, paste up on any wall, allow to dry and get busy with a crayon, pencil or felt tip. Select
shades to match your decor and create a masterpiece you won‘t find hanging in anyone else‘s home.It might look like child‘s play.But
you‘d be happy with that.

You‘re no stranger to toys.In fact, they share a special drawer with a few of your favourite outfits.Perhaps it‘s time for a return to
innocence with some proper adult playthings. Like the handmade goods from Lark, an online shop geared towards kidults and little ones
alike.Be transported back to your youth with teen-mag magnets and Ladybird notebooks. Pore over funky greetings cards like a kid in a
candy shop. Vintage fabric mirrors, buttons and lavender bags will have you brimming with nostalgia. Want to play with your food? You‘ll
love Lark‘s adorable knitted ice creams, veggies and doughnuts.Or opt for the Keep Calm and Carry On tea towel, which imparts
instructions on how to act in a future emergency.You know, now that you‘re all grown up.

If only there were more hours in the day. Think of all those five-course meals you‘d prepare, parties you‘d plan, muscles you‘d
tone.Really, you would.When time is of the essence, enlist the help of Domestic Goddesses and its army of happy helpers. From
washing and ironing to picking up the kids from school, these deities of domesticity are on call to do the dirty work. They can even
manage a job of seemingly Olympic proportions — like, say, arranging an all-singing, all-dancing dinner party in your home.Whether you
hire one of the personal trainers, stylists, chauffeurs, event organizers or dog walkers, you‘ll thank these professionals for taking testing
tasks off your hands.And you‘ll accomplish a supernatural amount — without suffering from exhaustion.About time.

You know the Paris flagship intimately. Owner Raymond Visan is on your speed dial. You chill to its soundtracks in destinations all
around the world.So you‘ve already booked a table at London‘s first Buddha Bar, which opens tonight under the grade two-listed
Waterloo Bridge overlooking the Thames.East meets West over two sleek floors. Upstairs, a bar serves Millionaire‘s mojitos and
passion fruit martinis, while downstairs a restaurant (complete with giant wooden Buddha) serves Pan-Asian dishes like spicy tuna tartar
with avocado or Peking duck with fruit compote and chilled mango soup with coconut crunch. A casual sushi bar caters for those who
just want to get on and dance.Like its siblings around the world, London‘s Buddha Bar is as much about the ambience as the food.It
should have you rubbing your tummy in no time.

You stayed in the night your friends partied with Bono. Sold your flat before the property boom. Threw away a first edition Harry
Potter.Tired of missing great opportunities?Chanced It, a forum for missed connections, will ensure you don‘t lose out on another
one.Remember that cutie on the train who helped you with your bags? Or the stunner with green eyes who danced with you for hours
and then disappeared? Search the listings to find out if they‘re kicking themselves for not taking your number, or make the first move
and post a message to them. Include a description of the encounter and a photo to jog their memory, then just sit back and wait to see if
destiny brings you back together.Think the whole thing reeks of desperation?Then don‘t bother, there‘s no love lost.
You‘re rarely the weakest link. You‘re unphased by Countdown‘s conundrums and you‘ve never had to phone a friend.You‘re bright. But
are you bright enough?You will be when you sport Kings of Neon‘s customised plimsolls on your feet. The new Brit label emblazons
trainers with graffitti-style illustrations and retro motifs for sneaker pimps of every age (and all from a dazzling £24.99).Get streetwise
with the Ghettoblaster Doodle, abstract with the colourful Paint Splatter, or nostalgic with the Pac Man Raver. You can also create your
own: splash with a company logo, cult phrase or your favourite design.Just in case you should want to smarten up your act.

Some people say you have to let go of the past in order to move on.Obviously they haven‘t met Deborah Woolf, a vintage dealer who
has held onto the past — in the form of clothes, accessories and toys — for the last 30 years. So successfully has she clung, she‘s just
opened her own boutique.Step back in time amongst originals by Biba, Ossie Clark and Bill Blass. Accessorize with Victorian beaded
bags, Trifari necklaces, and alligator and sealskin purses. Get global with 1930s Slovakian folk dresses or nostalgic with 1950s raffia
skirts and bathing suits.The sign above Woolf‘s door reads Joe‘s Confectionery Stores — a 1920s artefact she plans to keep. Until, of
course, she moves on.

When it comes to doing things for themselves, most women aren‘t shy to burn a bra or two.Even if it involves slaving over a hot
stove.Lend support to female dynamo Angela Hartnett (ex head chef, Connaught Hotel), who opens Murano in Mayfair tomorrow. The
resto is the next in Gordon Ramsay‘s powerful lineup, and it looks set to be a hit from day one.Expect dishes like Cromer crab tortellini
with spring onion, chile and Amalfi lemon; or roast pigeon with pickled beetroot and semolina gnocchi. The power-hungry will prefer to
sample the chef‘s tasting menu at the raised private dining table. Rumour has it that with Murano, Hartnett could well pick up a Michelin
star.This woman‘s place is definitely in the kitchen

Everywhere we look people are pushing out twins, triplets, sextuplets.And you know us: always one-upping folks.Sign up now for one (or
more) of the seven (yup, seven) brand spanking new local editions of DailyCandy Kids, launching September 15 in Atlanta, D.C., Dallas,
Miami, Philadelphia, Seattle and London. Every Monday you‘ll receive the latest and greatest scoop for mums and dads, from the

know who buys hand sanitiser, Frubes, and juice boxes in bulk.After all, the more the merrier.

Angry wife barks at annoying husband: Are you coming to bed?ot seductress purrs to eager stud: Are you coming to bed?It‘s not what
you say, but how you say it.Whatever your message, say it sweetly with TShirt Patisserie‘s new customised chocolate service. Select a
chocolate (heart or square, in milk or white) and emboss it with what you fancy — a message, company logo, symbol or treasured image
— with a variety of fonts and colours.You can preview your design on-screen before it is melted into quality Belgian chocolates and sent
out in an elegant box two days later.It‘s a tasteful way to get your message across.

Fashion might be fickle, but you have no trouble keeping up: you‘ve already swapped gladiator for Goth, purple for nude and florals for
lace.So you know that, this season, your bag needs to be one of a kind.Look to London-based accessories designer Vivien Cheng for
some true originals. She gives quality vintage and reclaimed handbags a modern face-lift with unique hand-painted finishes. Inspired by
every era, they complement any trend.All bags are sourced in the UK, and Cheng uses only water-based paints — so you‘ll earn brownie
points for your eco-conscious purchase (not to mention a few envious stares).Your stylish new accessory for the season?It‘s in the bag.
You say Topshop, they say Forever 21. You say Hello! they say Us Weekly. You say bum bag, they say fanny pack (seriously, they
do).But there‘s no reason to call the whole thing off.
Now you and your friends across the pond can talk for cheap (from one and a half pence a minute) from your own mobile with Globe
Dialer. (Enough with those scratch-off calling cards, already: they ruin your manicure.)The software is free to download, and you get
fifteen free minutes when you sign up. Simply go online, follow the instructions and get chatting for considerably less than what
Vodafone, Orange and all those other rip-off British carriers charge you.Deal or no deal: you do the maths (or is that math?)It definitely
makes cents.
Uh-oh, Mercury‘s going retro. Time to instill that delicate balance in your life. If you find yourself drawn to creative types, go with
it.Especially if it‘s a Gold Saturn T-shirt. The brainchild of a Miami art student, the badass tops are as cute as they are clever.You can‘t
help but make a statement in Prescription for Peace, a colorful bunch of pills arranged in the shape of a peace sign. Embrace your inner
child with Get High on Love, featuring a pink unicorn and hearts. Or prove you‘re out of this world in Astrology Map.On top of their
uplifting messages, the tees are all priced at less than $40 apiece, which is most appreciated in this crummy economy.You‘ll come away
with a sense of satisfaction in doing what is right today.

Ever since Eve first picked up a pair of fig leaf pasties, lingerie shopping has frequently led to identity crises.But Maria Paz Navales
must have missed the memo, because her new Undrest collection is neither granny nor tramp.Made from dreamy Supima cotton and
cotton cashmere, the undies, camis, bralets, and chemises are sweetly sexy but never overt. Soft shades of white, rose, and menthe
keep things subtle, and there‘s no skimping on details like real mother of pearl buttons and ribbons made from pure silk.The Classic
Sleep T is as pretty as it is comfy. The Marissa chemise makes judicious use of lace and bows. And the ruffle-lined Brazilian panty is 99
percent Madonna with just the teeniest bit of whore.Now that‘s something you can identify with.

You‘re a girl who doesn‘t know: to shower or snooze? Go out or order in? Flats or heels?Ai ai ai. Put an end to that last one altogether
with Camileon Heels — sassy new shoes that go from stilettos to kitten heels with just a simple tug and push.That‘s right: You can
downsize the sexy 3.25-inch heels to a classy 1.5 inches — and vice versa — as often as you please, minus any funky tools.Camileon
makes more than a dozen styles, all made of ultra-soft Italian Napa leather and containing a lightly padded foot bed and slip-resistant
rubber toe (take that, CL and MB). Our favorites have to be the classic patent leather Giulias and gladiator-strapped Mariellas, but no
matter what style you choose, they‘re sure to put a little pep in your step when you come and go.You come and go, you come and go.

You‘ve let someone rip out every last pubic hair. Had extractions on your bum. Taken face yoga classes. Even had needles stuck in your
eyes. All in hopes of recapturing your youth.There‘s an easier way, people. And all you need is a camera.The rules of YoungMe/NowMe,
the latest online distraction, are very simple: Find a photo of when you were a kid, recreate that photo as best you can today, and submit
them both.The results are alternately sweet and hilarious (who knew seeing grown men sit in one another‘s laps could be so funny?).
Spend hours perusing the gallery or grab your digicam and get in touch with your inner child by taking snaps yourself.But hurry up
already. You‘re not getting any younger.

Forcing body parts into tight rubber contraptions is deeply unpleasant, what with the pulling of hair and snapping on sensitive
areas.Which is why the turban swim cap is a creation of sheer brilliance. (Get your melon out of the gutter.)The headgear is made of
good old polyester with a waterproof lining. And thanks to a Velcro size adjuster in the back, wearing it does not make you feel like your
noggin is going to explode.The turban style was a little aggressive as a trend (really, only pretentious posers wear them as accessories),
but the design has room to keep long tresses dry while lapping it up. In our opinion, black is the obvious choice, but there are other color
options like hot pink and royal blue for those who like to live on the edge.The important thing is that you use protection.

Everyone will tell you it‘s a buyer‘s market these days. But Zilok knows ain‘t nothing going on but the rent.Which is why everything on the
new online marketplace is available to let. Type in your location, and the site will list all items with price, condition, and available dates in
your area.Taking on a home improvement project? Save coin by renting a set of power tools in your nabe. Want to start a jazz band?
Borrow someone‘s high-school clarinet for a nominal fee. On the flip side, turn a small profit on goods collecting dust in the garage
(Super 8 cameras, size-zero designer dresses). The best part: You might actually get to know your neighbors.Both professional rental
companies and regular folks can post and manage listings. All you have to do is set up an account. And watch the cash roll in.We‘ll buy

When you hear the words spread ‘em, your reaction is dependent upon who‘s uttering them. You‘d do the splits on his desk if it were
John Krasinski. And hold eagle pose for eternity if it were, say, Randy Jackson (that‘s just not a‘ight).You‘ll want to smear Spread‘s
spreads on everything. The couture version of peanut butter, the incredible spreadables begin with a base of either peanuts or almonds,
but it‘s the mix-ins that make them scrum.With more than 40 different varieties, flavors run the gamut from Cookies & Cream Peanut,
Dark Chocolate Lavender Peanut, and Rose Salted Basil Peanut to White Chocolate Espresso Almond, Milk Chocolate Cherry Almond,
and Butterscotch Almond.Each four-ounce jar is handcrafted, and due to high demand, they can get a little backed up at times.But you
know all about spreading yourself too thin.
As a kid, there was nothing you loved more than a big bowl of pasghetti. Except maybe cimmanon toast. Or flashing your bagina.So
impossible pronunciation won‘t stop you with Totokaelo, a new online shop and social networking site from Impulse, Seattle‘s expertly
curated women‘s boutique.With the same offhandedly hip aesthetic as the brick-and-mortar store, the slick site allows you to create a
profile, make wish lists, and start conversations with other customers. But the real draw is the clothes: a parade of independent and hard-
to-find labels like Rachel Comey, Mayle, Play by Comme des Garçons, Yohji Yamamoto, and Isabel Marant.Totokaelo is password
protected (mention DailyCandy for automatic entree), which, yes, is a little exclusive. Then again, it‘s a fashion jungle out there.And
somebody‘s gotta keep out the aminals.

Want to bring joy to the whole wide world?Jeff Woodrow‘s beat you to it. He‘s delivering peace and equality to the planet one T-shirt at a
time.Here‘s how his Joy Project works: You peruse the catalog of faces (all drawings from submitted photos) from around the globe and
pick a favorite. Next, choose the style (tank or tee) and color (white, pink, blue, green, yellow) of organic cotton or bamboo shirt upon
which the image will reside.Along with your new wearable art comes an ID tag with the person‘s name, country of origin, and passion in
life so you know a little about the brains behind the beauty — a reminder of how your everyday actions can affect perfect strangers.Once
you‘ve purchased a shirt, upload a photo of yourself to the website so your face can become a work of art.C‘mon, join the joyride.

Neon is always a sign of something great: LIQUOR, HOT DOUGHNUTS, LIVE NUDE GIRLS.The next bright star that will catch your
eye: TOYWATCH NEON COLLECTION.Made out of Plasteramic (that‘s plastic that looks like ceramic), the watches are available in four
drool-worthy colors — Kryptonite Green, Plutonium Pink, Ultra Violet, and Atomic Orange. Granted, the glow is more understated than,
say, the flickering lights of Las Vegas.But clearly, you‘ve hit the JACKPOT.

Your dresses are heading down the final stretch! It‘s a neck and neck race between comfort and style. They‘re approaching the finish,
and … it‘s a tie?There are no losers at Pyjama Room, the UK‘s site for chic relaxation. Ideal for a jaunt to the market or a trip to the
airport, Pyjama Room‘s navy and white summer essentials (like their pocketed smocked dress and reversible hoodie) are the perfect
threads for everyday elegance.Produced in an incredibly soft jersey modal, the clothes have become the talk of the town: London‘s style
mavens Laura Bailey and Jaquetta Wheller have made a beeline and Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman has called them the ―new lounge
wizards.‖As an exclusive bonus, DailyCandy readers get £30 off any order more than £150. But hurry: The offer closes at midnight on 12
July.It‘ll be a race to the finish

You wear your sunglasses at night. So you can, so you can.What? Be a total tool?Come now, party people. Protect your peepers during
the day with a pair of Modo sunglasses from their brand-new website.Each pair is handcrafted in Japan with serious detail paid to both
design and quality. Frames are made of titanium and acetate plastics; various lenses are constructed out of mineral glass, which is
antiglare and scratch resistant, giving you incredibly clear vision even during PTS.Styles range from aviators to wraparounds to oversize
frames. Standouts include the black dust Camillas and the Pearl Valentinas, but there‘s not a single pair that we don‘t encourage.As
long as you ditch them come sundown.
Flowers can be a real downer. They die (and then stink). And if you‘re buying them yourself — wamp, wamp — they‘re expensive.Chin
up, Dollface. You must not know about Flat Flowers.
Transparent window stickers of pretty bouquets, they‘re visible from inside and out, so you and passersby get to enjoy their beauty. No
adhesive means you can move them around and use them over and over again.There‘s a plethora of options, and aside from being two
dimensional, they look just like the real thing. Pink dahlias in a glass vase are sweet and simple. A bright arrangement of mixed poppies
really, well, pops. And it‘s impossible not to get happy about red and yellow chrysanthemums. Not a single one will run you more than
fifteen bucks, making them both cheap and cheerful.Looks like everything‘s coming up roses.

Once upon a time there was a lovely, charming apartment. It had high ceilings, beautiful moldings, stunning hardwood floors, and lots of
light.But its evil owner left it each day to crunch skulls (okay, numbers) in a dungeon (okay, a bank), depriving it of companionship (an
antique armoire does not a friend make).One day, to the lady‘s surprise, a fruitful dwarf lemon tree arrived on her doorstep — a present
from her not-so-evil boyfriend — and immediately spruced up the lonely apartment. So much so that she headed to the Acorn Springs
Dwarf Citrus website, where she discovered that her dwarf tree options were bountiful: lime, orange, grapefruit, mandarin, kumquat, and
banana. So she ordered one of each, till she had seven dwarfs total.The apartment was soon the jauntiest spot on the block, filled with
life and color. The owner, no longer evil, became downright cheerful.She was even known to whistle while she worked.The end.

Technology has made everything easier.To wit, office snitching. One click of the mouse, and your nasty rant about the IT department is
whisked away to upper management.Unless, of course, your e-mail just happens to get flagged for unsavory language and winds up
being intercepted — by the IT department.All the more reason to start sending your what-for messages on Sugar Lily greeting cards.
Each original design — available as singles, in threes, or in sets of six — features whimsical artwork like sweet octopuses, sliced kiwi,
and abstract cherry blossoms. And they can express specific sentiments (such as hello, thank you, and birthday wishes) or come blank
for any occasion.So no matter how hard-hitting your next tirade on the flakiness of the mail room staff is, it‘s sure to be easy on the eyes.

Whether you call it Secret Diary of a Call Girl or Memoirs of a Geisha, the story‘s always about the same thing.Really, really great
hair.Now you can get that come-ravish-me look without going pro with Peachypan‘s kanzashi: classic, intricate geisha hair accessories
made from folded silk.There are simple designs like the Japanese Snowdrop (black petals accented with silver hardware and red and
pink stamens) or the Marie Antoinette (fuchsia and red petals anchored with a pink Swarovski crystal). But it‘s the elaborate kanzashi —
like the Blackbird Meadow, comprised of more than 80 black silk petals offset by smaller pastel daisies bursting with rhinestones,
glittering stamens, and a silver butterfly — that will draw admirers.Entirely handmade, the ornaments don‘t come cheap.But you‘ll be
glad to know that Peachypan believes in 100 percent customer satisfaction — and that‘s hard to come by.In any profession.

It takes no effort to elicit oohs and aahs from pictures of puppies and kittens. But sloths and vultures?That takes a professional like
Catherine Ledner. A trained photographer, Ledner has meshed her talent with her love of animals to create works of art.Her refreshing
style ditches the overload of cuteness for modern cheekiness by capturing animals against vintage wallpaper backdrops. The limited-
edition prints come in four sizes (11 by 14, 16 by 20, 20 by 24, and 32 by 40), all signed and ready for framing.Each picture evokes a
smile and a chuckle. Favorites include a fuzzy white baby camel, a brown cow sticking out its tongue, a pink flamingo stretching its neck,
and an armadillo showing off its behind.It‘s so uncute you‘ll want to kiss its ass.
Strewing rose petals on the bed. Serenading in public places. Proposing at sporting events. PDA.Romance gets a bad rap. But you‘ll fall
head over heels for Keemia dresses — ethereal frocks that are just dreamy.A neutral palette of cream, grayish lavender, and black
keeps them flirty instead of flashy. Details like ruffles, peacock feathers, draping, and rosettes are what make them so special. Fitted
silhouettes and high quality fabrics (silk, satin) mean they‘ll stand the test of time.The ruffle halter and rosette tie back dresses are
standouts in the current collection. Keep your peepers peeled for more structured styles come fall.This is more than a one-season stand.

A few years ago, you complained that a pair of Choos cost $400. But these days, a pair of Loubs will run you upward of $800.Avoid
highway robbery and transform what‘s already in your closet with Erica Weiner‘s shoe clips. Mixing antiques with natural objects, Weiner
creates accessories that look fancy but will set you back just 25 bucks.A couple pairs could multiply your existing shoe collection into an
endless selection of whimsy. Navy grosgrain rosettes spruce up a pair of ballet flats and add major oomph to ordinary pumps. Silver
bows turn conservative work footwear into disco dancing numbers. And twists give your basic blacks the attention they deserve.In other
words, some seriously fancy footwork.

Deep in the bowels of your metropolis, there lurks an evil so dreadful men dare not speak its name. And it‘s right under your fingertips.
(Woman screams.)Cyber Clean to the rescue!
It‘s flying straight to your keyboards, mice, telephones, and other places that harbor so much bacteria, they make public toilets seem
clean enough to eat on.The yellow blob may look small, but it slaughters germs and takes names, leaving nothing but a lemon scent in
its wake. Plus, thanks to a high-tech formula, it actually absorbs hard-to-reach dirt, food, and other particles with ease (it‘s on, Lucius
Fox).Got a bigger job you want to tackle, like, say, that Batmobile in the driveway? They‘ve also got a version for cars and boats.Cyber
Clean, you‘re our hero! (Woman blushes.)All in a day‘s work.

Keep. It. Simple. Stupid.Finally someone has followed the age-old advice. When designer Anne Johnston Albert shut down her East
Village boutique, New York dolls grieved her wearable everyday pieces.But now it‘s time to rejoice: Martin is making a second coming.
And this go-around, the love knows no boundaries — the capsule collection is available exclusively online.Loyal followers will praise her
coveted jeans. A black heavy satin A-line dress with cap sleeves and waist tie hides a multitude of figure sins. Look the part of innocent
angel in the ethereal white petal top. And long long-sleeve tees, a pocket blouse, and cashmere poncho will restore your faith in
casualwear.Thank heaven someone has that basic instinct

An unofficial poll of former flings and loose-lipped confidantes revealed that you‘re not opposed to getting down and dirty.Unless you‘re
talking about mud, bugs, and sludge. In which case, you‘ll pass, thanks much.For those rare moments of unavoidable muck (see: hippie
music fests), the Sea to Summit Pocket Shower is your new best friend.Simply fill the fist-size, waterproof reservoir (which expands to
hold ten liters of H2O), hang it from the two tough Delrin D rings with the provided cord, and let the black fabric soak up some rays.
Several hours later, twist the spout for seven minutes of hot, showery bliss.At least there‘s one way to clean up your act.

Floral in the air.Girls like to wear in their hair.Don‘t quit our day job.We‘ll leave the haikus and their accompanying headpieces to Bando,
a brand new line of hair goodness from two L.A. stylists. Not for the demure wallflower, they‘re big and bold in both size and color. The
result: Complete and total awesomeness.Jewel-tone peacock feathers and sparkly sequins are paired with bright tulle, silk flowers, and
rhinestone brooches. The girls have wrapped, stitched, and glued the materials together for some serious va va voom.Wear one on the
anniversary of your birth, when you walk down the aisle, or 24-7.Or, in their case, 5-7-5.
Whether it‘s a tip-top secret or a glimpse of nip, a slip is rarely a good thing.Unless you‘re talking about Your Slip Is Showing, a company
offering flirty underthings that are meant to peek out from underneath a dress or skirt.The whimsical creations add flair and take any
outfit from boring to wowie zowie. Black ostrich feathers and rhinestones turn a basic black sheath into sleek formalwear. Embroidered
lace and silk organza transform el cheapo into vintage glam. And intricate red chiffon roses put a feminine twist on anything they are
beneath.Go crazy and throw one on over pants — it‘s damn near impossible not to look sexy no matter how you wear it.But be careful,
he may try to slip it in.

You don‘t know your rasp from your elbow or your cream from your crema. And the only ounce you measure goes up in smoke — and
you‘re nowhere near the stove.Here to save you from a life of Hot Pockets: Two Dudes, One Pan: Maximum Flavor from a Minimalist
Kitchen by Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo — the guys whose carmel pear you‘ve seen on the Food Network and whose ribs you‘ve
scarfed at Animal.The book helps you eat your way through impressive but uncomplicated recipes made using minimal equipment. Whip
up spicy citrus-glazed duck breasts, creamed Brussels sprouts with bacon, and a fruit of your choice upside-down cake.Pick up tips and
tricks — the right way to cut a watermelon and how to salvage burnt gravy — along the way.Just in case things don‘t pan out.

When it comes to your hair, you‘re all about au natural.Excessive hair spray? Hardly. Helmet head is not your friend.Of course, real
helmets aren‘t optional on bike trips, so rather than pass on protection, cover up with a cycle headdress.Hi1-Designs pageboyish hat fits
on top of your helmet, keeping you safe and stylish. It‘s made of wool and comes in black, white, pink or navy. It‘s even wrapped in a
reflective band so motorists can easily spot you in the dark.ou‘re still stuck with itty-bitty biker shorts, but you can stop worrying about
what‘s up top. So pedal fashionably along and smile as you shake out those lovely locks at the end.Your safety‘s riding on it.

It‘s a classic story: Small town girl hits the big city. Gets starry-eyed. Starts behaving like a harlot. (See: Becky Sharp, Trishelle from The
Real World, Brit Brit.)But designer Jenny Gordy bucked the trend by moving from NYC to Kansas City to launch her career. The result:
Wiksten, a small, sophisticated, and refreshingly down-to-earth clothing collection.Named for her Swedish grandmother, the sweet line
of handmade tops, skirts, and dresses mixes a Scandinavian sense of restraint with a dash of country schoolmarm and a subtle A.P.C.-
esque vibe.
From the floral henley top to the cherry red sailor dress, each piece from the new fall collection is limited edition. But Gordy kindly
opened shop a day early for DailyCandy readers who appreciate her stellar aesthetic.In other words, those who take the ass out of class.

You have no objection to letting your skint student of a sister crash on your couch.But you hadn‘t planned on her stealing all your
cashmere sweaters.Protect your wardrobe from unwanted pests with Total Wardrobe Care‘s new moth removal service. A team of
specialists will arrive at your house to deep cleanse your closet (i.e., throw out old clothes, alter ill-fitting items and sell unwanted
designer pieces on eBay). After a major dry cleaning session (moths love dirty clothes), everything is returned in breathable garment
bags.They‘ll leave you with the latest antimoth products, including sachets, scented drawer paper and a moth box, which attracts male
moths with female pheromones to stop the breeding cycle.It‘s the perfect pest-free plan.With no holes.

Ever wonder where we find the witty words we write? We make 'em up! (Well, some of them.) The DailyCandy Lexicon: Words That
Don't Exist but Should is a compilation of these soon-to-be-discovered words. Written by a crack team of secret agents (fine, us), the
Lexicon is accompanied by a behind-the-keyboards look at the DailyCandy staff – and our wacky escapades.
You know your French stick from your focaccia, your pumpernickel from your pita, your dough balls from your donuts.So you‘ll be
pleased to know that Judges Bakery — the popular Hastings outpost — is now open inside Selfridges Food Hall. Owned and run by
Green & Black‘s founders Craig Sams and Josephine Fairley, the bakery has full organic status, with baker Emmanuel Hadjiandreou
(Gordon Ramsay, The Savoy, Daylesford Organic) at its helm.At the counter, find slow-risen (eighteen hours minimum) artisan breads
alongside cakes, shortbread, macaroons and Judges‘s famous pink meringue pigs, which are tinted with raspberry puree and beetroot
juice instead of artificial colourings.A load of posh nosh or exceptional daily bread?We‘ll let you be the judge of that.

What do you do in your spare time? Give up? Give in?It‘s all the same when it comes to Oxfam.Well known for its secondhand thrift
shops, the charity has just launched an impressive e-store selling covetable donated wares (books, clothing, accessories) at groovy
prices (we‘re talking £2.99 for a scarf, people), alongside goods made by artisans in underdeveloped countries.Participating online
shops span the British Isles, with more being added every week, and they‘re looking for volunteers to assist in the sourcing and
delivering of merchandise. Look online for your nearest venue and go give them a hand.You doing something for nothing (when you
really don‘t have time to do it in the first place)?Give over.

We all have a friend who orders pizza without bread (―can‘t do wheat‖), crème brulee without cream (―allergic to dairy‖) and salad without
dressing (―you never know what‘s in it‖).Sometimes food intolerances are just plain intolerable.Introduce picky peeps to Cinnamon
Clove‘s allergy-friendly treats. The delicious wheat-, gluten- and dairy-free cakes and brownies are made with rice and potato flour, rice
milk, soya butter, free-range eggs and unrefined sugar.Unless it‘s taste you are allergic to, you could enjoy one of these as a healthy
option whether you have an allergy or not.That‘s called having your cake and eating it, too.

Whether it‘s haikus over novels, Minis over Hummers, or circumcised over un, you‘ve never been one to revel in excess.So you‘ll
appreciate Scarflettes, abbreviated versions of the season‘s ubiquitous scarf.The toasty choker-like collars spring from the mind of a
former milliner who wanted a way to keep her neck warm without the bulk. In fabrics like silk wool, cashmere, and lambskin, they‘re
made mostly to order with lots of painstaking handwork.The tartan ruffle preppies up a plain sweater. The slouchy cowl neck is art-
school chic. Simple cashmere numbers are all class. And we could go on for days about the leather version with a dangling lariat.But
we‘re totally cut off.
Despite your penchant for singing into a hairbrush and strumming the air guitar, you haven‘t a single groupie. Yet.Les Chiffoniers — the
new clothing range by Leena Similu (previously head designer at Stella McCartney and senior designer at Jil Sander) — won‘t turn you
into an overnight sensation, but it‘ll help you look like one. Most famous for its spray-on leggings (as often seen on Ms. Moss), the label
has just launched its first main collection. Unleash your inner rock star with cling-tight PVC jackets, shimmering sequin hot pants,
gabardine zipper pants and seductive satin frocks. A clutch of knits, slinky T-shirts and tank tops completes the look.Put a load of this on
and watch the fans come.

Carrie and Tuck sitting in a tree. W-R-I-T-I-N-G.First comes love: Just wait until you get a glimpse of their notetote, a smart invention
that makes old-fashioned correspondence easy and fun.
Then comes marriage: Which color will you choose? Each bag is avail in navy, brown, pink, and green and comes with a starter kit of
color-coordinated stationery, clipboard, and pen. When you start to run low, just pick up one of the refill packs in preppy themes like
stripes and alligators.The notetote zips right up, making it easy to carry around everything necessary to write thank-yous and miss-yous
whenever you get the writing bug.Like when your friend strolls by with a baby in a baby carriage.
When on holiday, you enjoyed many a balmy night.Now that you‘re back, however, you can‘t escape the barmy nights.Wise up to the
Gwdihŵ (that‘s goody hoo and Welsh for ‗owl‘) range of natural balms and you‘ll relax in no time. Whether you‘re fighting stubble rash
(self-inflicted or otherwise), chapped lips or mouse-finger cramp, these salves will soothe in seconds.The additive-free line is made with
coconut oil, olive oil and beeswax, plus a variety of native Anglesey herbs and plants that aid every ailment. Whether you want to heal
sore muscles, relieve tension, soften lips and nails, keep bugs away or ease insomnia, there‘s one to suit.Goody hoo for you, too.

If you learned anything from the bleach blonde home dye job of ‘01, it‘s that some things are better left to the pros.And this October,
Selfridges Oxford Street brings the pros to you with Meet the Experts, a month dedicated to the masterminds behind the most famous
and effective beauty products, preparations and treatments.Get your skin care questions answered by Clinique‘s top New York
dermatologist, Dr. Orentreich, and consult hairstyling guru Anestis Cobella in his state-of-the-art salon.Meet American cult favourite
Marian Newman, who will be launching her eponymous nail line exclusively at Selfridges; preview this season‘s metallic colours with
Benjamin Rousseau, Lancome‘s national makeup artist, and update your tired look with Benoit Dumond, national stylist from Nars.And
that‘s just the beginning. Meet the Experts runs Thursday, 2 October-Friday, 31 October at Selfridges Oxford Street with something new
every day.Don‘t be late for class.

Things that are unhealthy: Sleeping in your parents bed with them. Surviving on coffee and fags.Attempting friendship with an ex who
screwed you over.Things that are healthy: Tibits, a new all-day vegetarian restaurant, bar and food-to-go venue that opens in the West
End today. Before you scream hairy armpits and Velcro sandals, be aware that it‘s not all tofu, sprouts and mung beans.In the first
British outpost of this Swiss chain, you‘ll find everything from spelt croissants, chocolate brioche and fresh juices at breakfast to soups,
sandwiches and salads throughout the day. In addition, a full bar (as in alcohol) operates in the evening.Don‘t expect wooden cutlery or
recycled napkins: Tricia Guild of Designer‘s Guild has given the place her signature luxury touch.It‘s the perfect place to veg out.

For most people, a paper cut spells pain.But for illustrator Robert Ryan paper cuts result in painstakingly beautiful works of art now
available at Ryantown, his new East London shop.The tiny store — open only at the weekends — stocks the Cyprus-born artist‘s
intricate cut-paper artwork in a range that includes stationery, tiles, ceramics, clothes, books, prints, mugs and more.Each whimsical
design is handcut on delicate paper using a tiny scalpel and gives a glimpse into Ryan‘s wildly romantic imagination. You‘ll find hearts,
church bells, mountains made of flowers, clouds, birds talking to children and silhouetted lovers embracing on rooftops.There‘s no doubt
about it: he‘s a cut above the rest.
Blind Date 1: Hairy fingers.Blind Date 2: Snorts loudly when laughs.Blind Date 3: Lives at home with parents.
Some might call you picky, but you‘ve got standards — especially when it comes to what you bring home.So you‘ll want to get further
acquainted with Bouf, an online marketplace selling groovy homewares, art, design products and gifts from independent sellers around
the world. Through its eBay-style site, Bouf offers items from cutting-edge designers, manufacturers and design students. Vendors are
chosen by Bouf‘s own scouts, and products come directly from each. You‘ll find everything from exotic ceramic wall tiles to stylish felt
cushions and a host of gadgets and accessories.They‘re very selective about whom and what they allow on the site.So you‘re sure to
love whatever you end up with.
Greening your life is one thing (hello, Lexus hybrid), but your sweets?Step away from the spelt cookie and indulge in a treat from
Eatpastry. The ecoconscious company does for treats what Loudermilk did for fashion, creating scrumptious, organic, fair trade truffles,
candies, and cookies.Made with French and raw cooking techniques, the dairy-free confections satisfy the sweetest teeth without the
sugar rush (and subsequent crash) using healthy fats, nuts and seeds, and other wholesome ingredients.Such pure motives result in
yum combinations like Blueberry Rooibos (with handmade dark chocolate filling) and Ginger Molasses (half-dipped cookies topped with
candied orange peel).Not to mention everything comes packaged in recycled boxes and biodegradable cellophane.That‘s what we call
sweet deliverance.

azuki powder and brown sugar to exfoliate and moisturize your
pretty punim.

make your face smooth like buttah (minus the grease factor, of
Moisturizer: Hard Night Good Morning is a boozehound‘s (or just a
busy gal‘s) BFF. By stimulating the skin, it hides the fact that you

face looking fresh and flawless.
Cover-up: Cover FX Total Coverage Cream Foundation can mask

Foundation: Dermacia‘s Breathable Foundation looks truly natural
while magically hiding wrinkles and sun spots.
Mascara: Fiberwig — no clumping. No flaking. No smudging. No
smearing. Leave it to the Japanese to create the best lash
lengthener out there.

found to heal a bad case of chapped kissers.

and teeth whitener.Highlights extender: Frederic Fekkai Salon

to the salon.
Toothpaste: Arm & Hammer Complete Care does its thing without

activated technology. And the Maintenance Stick ensures your
pearly whites stay that way.

affordable, safe alternative to Botox.
