St. Ives Smoothing In-Shower Body Scrub: Product Review

What: Angela softens up with St. Ives Exfoliating In-Shower Body Polish The Lowdown: Memorial Day is a memory, and since summer’s when we bare the most skin—like it or not—it’s high time that we all take a little inventory of any rough spots we’ve let go through the long winter months. Go ahead, I’ll wait. […]

IMShopping.com: Site Review

One of the biggest challenges of online shopping is that you are, in every practical sense, on your own. You can search items to your heart’s content, and read every description word by precious word, but if you have a question, or don’t know exactly what you’re looking for? You’re out of luck. But not […]

Dove Ultimate Visibly Smooth Antiperspirant: Product Review

What: Angela attempts to get smooth – and dry – with Dove Ultimate Visibly Smooth Antiperspirant The Lowdown: All I’ve ever really wanted in an antiperspirant is for it to keep me as dry as possible, for as long as possible (there’s nothing worse than a mid-afternoon summer meltdown in your favorite silky blouse – […]

BeautyTicket.com: Site Review

Budget clothes shopping online can be a challenge, but budget makeup shopping? It’s kind of the Mount Everest of Internet shopping on the cheap. While there’s discount clothing outlets abound, good discount makeup is just much harder to come by. Enter BeautyTicket.com.

What: Angela gets her glow on with Physicians Formula Organic Wear 2-in-1 Bronzer and Blush The Lowdown: Let me start by saying that, as a rule, I dislike bronzers. And blush. Intensely. In the past, I attributed my distaste for these particular products down to the possibility that I have just never mastered the fine […]

Sorting with Style.com: Site Review

Being organized is always in style, and there’s no reason that workplace fashion needs to end at those hot python pumps you’re rockin’. But, like everything else, we’re not going to spend a fortune on staplers and clipboards and let’s face it, cute trendy pens are a luxury, not a need. Still, what you surround […]

Chemisettes by Anne: Product Review

What: Angela slips on a Chemisette by Anne in place of her usual cami … The Lowdown: What exactly is a “chemisette” you ask? Well, according to the packaging, it’s “an ideal lingerie alternative” to the camis and tank tops (and I’d even add shells) that we usually wear under blouses, jackets, and other low […]

RedTagCrazy.com: Site Review

Okay, after spending waaay too much time navigating shopping sites that are trying to be everything to everybody, RedTagCrazy.com is a welcome respite. One item at a time please. Too minimalist? Maybe not, because one great item for an unbelievable price is worth far more to us that an offering of 6,000 mediocre pieces that […]

Band-Aid Friction Block: Product Review

What: Angela glides on a little Band-Aid Friction Block The Lowdown: In theory, Band-Aid Friction Block is a great idea. Instead of having to slap on some unsightly band-aids on those sore spots where new and/or impractical shoes rub you the wrong way, simply glide on a little Friction Block and go. The product itself […]

Weardrobe.com: Site Review

Fashion isn’t just about shopping—it’s also about inspiration. But where to find it? If you live in a style-centric locale like New York City or Paris, just step out your front door. For the rest of us, finding creative style stimulation isn’t always so easy. Which is why we dig (and, okay, probably waste ridiculous […]
