I wish I could get my entire wardrobe at Reiss. A British chain store with nine stores in the United States, Reiss’ clothing evokes Jackie-O elegance — simple, modern, yet classic pieces with personality. Shopping there will put a serious dent in your wallet (many of their skirts, coats and dresses cost upwards of $200), but damn, baby, you’ll sure look good!
Spectra Visual Newsreader | msnbc.com
For all you visual learners out there (like moi), the Spectra Visual Newsreader might tickle your fancy. It’s a colorful, new way to read the news. News topics and headlines are represented by a range of rotating blocks of color. How cool is that?
If you need quick inspiration for a makeup look or design project (or even painting the walls at home), just head over to COLOURlovers. I could spend hours surfing the bajillion color patterns and palettes on the site and thinking of all the lid, crease and brow bone possibilities.

I’ve learned a lot about perfume and fragrances reading the Now Smell This blog. With posts written by several contributors, the site covers breaking perfume news along with in-depth scent reviews.

Ugh… Last night, in the middle of watching Monster in Law on the toob and hanging out with the neighbor’s tabby (who may not actually belong to anyone, it turns out), El Hub made the most disgusting of discoveries: a small, flat white worm was stuck on the poor cat’s coat.
El Hub said he thought it looked like some kind of parasite. I had planned to take the cat to a vet one of these days to find out if he’s been microchipped. Because he’s always been so friendly and has a nice coat, I assumed he had a real home and people to look after him.
But maybe not.
He doesn’t wear a collar, and he’s over at our house morning, noon and night. I’m worried that he’s not getting the proper veterinary care that a growing cat needs. Plus, I can’t lie, I’ve been kinda wanting to officially adopt him.
So, this week we’re taking his striped ass to the vet to find out what the heck is going on with the worm sitch. Did I mention that I HATE WORMS and that I’m totally grossed out? I really hope it’s treatable. Poor little guy.
