Our Top 5 Father’s Day Gifts for 2012!

June 7, 2012

Hello, hello! Just a quick reminder that Father’s Day is right around the corner! Sunday, June 17, to be exact. So that means you’ve got a little over a week to get the big guy something special. But don’t fret if you’re blanking on great gift ideas. We are here to help! Ella & Boss has a number of awesome gifts for men that will delight Pops so much I bet he’ll forget how much he hates your good-for-nothing boyfriend, or that you could really use a haircut, hippie, or that time you totally pulled a Cameron and totaled his Ferrari! Well, maybe he’ll forget for like a week, at least. 😉

Here are our top 5 favorite Father’s Day gifts for 2012!

1. Four-Piece Chrome-Plated Shaving Kit and Stand 

I’ve found that when it comes to shaving, there are two kinds of folks: folks who love it and find it relaxing, and normal people who think it’s kind of a hassle. Clearly, I’ve spent some time in the second group, but I can tell you now that Bey-Berk’s shaving products are so lovely that shaving is a pleasure. This four-piece chrome-plated shaving kit comes with a Mach-3 Razor, a shave brush, a bowl and a stand. It’s an elegant, sophisticated piece and a perfect gift for a Dad who likes a close shave with a vintage twist. ($64.95)

2. Black Leather Watch Winder

Don’t you hate it when your watch stops at some inopportune time? It can wreak all sorts of havoc all over your life. Well, rejoice friends, because no one has to ever again suffer the indignity of missing an alarm and running into some important appointment late, sweaty, and possibly fired! How is this possible? Bey-Berk’s beautiful black leather automatic watch winder! Perfect for the stylish watch owner who appreciates great quality, great design, and attention to detail. This elegant watch winder is fashioned from double-stitched, buttery soft black leather and can wind two watches at the same. Plus, it doubles as a lovely, sophisticated little display case. Be warned, however. Once you turn it on, it’s not for the easily hypnotized! After you find the perfect spot for it, it plugs into the wall with the included AC adapter, but also includes a back-up battery, so Dad won’t lose time even when he’s on the go! ($197.95)

3. Lacquered Walnut Tabletop Cigar Cutter

Stylish, sophisticated and extremely useful, this tabletop cigar cutter from Bey-Berk International is the perfect gift if your Dad happens to be a cigar aficionado. A beautiful blend of form and function, it couldn’t be lovelier to look at or easier to use. Just slide your favorite stogie into the center hole, push down on the lever and voila! Perfect cut! Plus, it features a little drawer to hold all your necessary accessories and a latch keeps the blade the safely in place when it’s not in use. The high-gloss lacquered walnut and polished silver accents make it not only durable, but pretty swanky. It’s a special, elegant statement piece and conversation starter Dad will definitely want to show off. ($124.95)

4. Moleskine Gourmet Gift Box Set

My Dad’s passion is cooking and food, so this is the one I’m looking at. If you’re Dad’s like mine, you should check it out too. Created especially for the food and wine enthusiast, the Moleskine Gourmet Gift Box Set is an ideal gift for the Grand Gourmand Dad. The set includes: a Passions Recipe Journal (5″ x 8.25″), a Passions Wine Journal (5″ x 8.25″), 20 Gourmet Tasting Notes, which include space for each course from appetizers to dessert, and 20 Gourmet Coaster Notes, which space for wine characteristics, tasting notes and labels. Record and collect all your culinary impressions during fine meals. Plus, since it’s from Moleskine®, makers of the essential little black notebook for two centuries, you know each journal has that signature, sophisticated Moleskine® hard black cover, which now comes embossed with culinary themed images and writings. This is the perfect gift to keep any epicurean excited for every meal! ($69.95)

5. Waterproof Cotton & Leather Dopp Kit

Here’s a perfect little dopp kit by Rebecca Ray Designs for the Dad on the go. Heavy waxed cotton offers water resistance and durability. The authentic saddle leather sides, leather carrying strap and signature harness-grade D-rings offer that touch of rustic sophistication that make this kit truly a one-of a kind. Offered in three colors, you’re sure to find the one that suits Dad’s personal style. ($59.95)

But that’s not all! Is your Pop a techie? A sports fan? We’ve got all sorts of gifts that he’s sure to love. Head on over to Ella & Boss right now and check us out!

Moleskine Fans of the World: Unite and Take Over!

May 31, 2012

Hey, friends! RM here, once again! Guess what I’m doing right now? Just guess! Well, if you said sitting at my desk in skinny jeans and a Cure t-shirt, fiddling with my carabiner keychain, nodding my head (but certainly NOT dancing to) the new Japandroids album on NPR, and blogging, you’d be mostly right.

It’s a Smiths t-shirt.

The Cure? No, thank you!

Anyway, you’re probably wondering why I’m sitting here trotting out my tried and true, artsy-fartsy, aging hipster bonafides. Well, it’s actually in celebration, because I’m personally so incredibly psyched to announce the newest brand joining the E&B family! This one goes out to all the artsy kids out there, because yes, folks, E&B’s now got MOLESKINE!

YES!!!

Trade secret: I’m a writer and musician by trade. I’ve been writing music and stories and that sort of thing for as long as I can remember, and those were my areas of study, so I’m sure you can imagine I honestly can’t remember a single point in the last ten years or so when I haven’t had a Moleskine journal within arm’s reach. You know the ones I mean. The sexy little journals and sketchbooks, with the sleek black hard covers, that have been the favorite of artists and writers for nearly two centuries. And if you’ve ever used one, you know why. They’re such a joy to write it in. Nice, thick acid-free stock. A built-in bookmark and elastic closure that make sure you never lose your place or any important keepsakes. The durable hard cover that can take a beating for months and still stay looking brand new. And yet there’s something about them that’s so comforting and inviting. Simply brilliant. Moleskine journals have been with me through my college days in New York City (I was that sensitive guy with the acoustic guitar and long hair in your dorm. Hi!), trekking through South America, and, even today, they’re the only journals I trust to keep all my ideas, observations, inspirations, and favorite memories safe and secure. And I bet you everything I own if you try one, you’ll feel the same way.

If you’re a Moleskine junkie like me, then you’ve probably heard that Moleskine has been moving in some new directions of late. Not only do they still offer their classic journals and sketchbooks, but now they offer all sorts of products that help you stay organized and excited about the hobbies and pursuits you love. The new line in particular that had us over the moon is their new line of Passion Journals. Designed with that signature Moleskine style, these journals are perfect for recording all the observations, ideas, inspirations and memories related to your specific areas of interest like gardening, wine, interior design, cooking and so many more!

All journals come with a different series of tools for page customization: stickers, icons, glossaries, listings, themed calendars, a double pocket for clippings, tickets and cards. Like the Moleskine Classic Journals, Moleskine Passions have a sewn binding, acid-free paper, rounded edges, elastic closure, cloth ribbon placeholder (Passions Journals have 3, each in a different shade), and a rear expandable inner pocket. They’re just awesome for documenting every facet of the things in life you love most (Baby Journal, anyone?), and if there’s someone in your life who’s passionate about their hobby, obviously, you simply couldn’t find a more perfect gift.

So head on over to E&B right now and pick your passion! And stay tuned for more Moleskine news coming soon! I’m going back to the new Walkmen album. RM, out! -XO

Swag Powers, Activate!

May 18, 2012

Happy Friday, ladies and gents! Resident Male here, as always, with most exciting news! I believe it was the great poet of our times, Ms. Beyonce Knowles, who, in her hit song “Party,” reminded us all of the importance of “dripping in swagu.” (Or as we olds would say, “adorning yourself with cool and stylish apparel and/or accessories at all times.”) Well, to that end, all you E&B-heads out there will be pumped to learn that we’ve taken Queen B’s lesson to heart and, thanks to our good friends at MacMannes Inc., we’re happy to introduce you to the first item in our line of smart, stylish and practical Ella & Boss merchandise. Yes, folks, it’s officially time to turn your swag up with our swag! So check it out! The official Extra-Large Ella & Boss Canvas Beach Tote!!!

From the front…

…To the back!

Coming in at a whopping 27″ x 17″ x 9″, this extra large tote will hold everything you could possibly need for a trip to the gym, the grocery store, the classroom, the office and all points in between. It’s made from a durable extra-heavy navy and white canvas, and features a detachable shoulder strap, attached with matte silver D-rings, closed interior seams and a zipper top. Plus, it’s got two hanging interior pockets for easy access to your wallet, keys, cell phone and anything else you need to keep close at hand while running around. And that’s not all! With summer coming up, we’re all looking for the perfect beach bag, right? Well, look no further, because there’s no question that this bag can easily accommodate almost every essential you and the fam could possibly need for a relaxing day by the waves. (I’m afraid someone’s still going to have to lug that cooler…) And to top things off, of course, it’s adorned with our simple, stylish E&B logo, so you can let everybody know about that chic, awesome, swagadocious (and unflappably humble) website that’s gone and made you look so much more chic, awesome and swagadocious than you did already!

At $59.99, it’s an absolute steal, or get one free with any purchase over $300! But if it’s not necessarily your cup of tea and you still need a great bag, we have other amazing ones to choose from, like the incredible vintage-inspired bags from Rebecca Ray Designs. So… I think it’s time to get to shopping, folks! Thanks for all the love and support! RM, out! -XO

Meet Our New Line: Hangups & Baggage!

May 7, 2012

Afternoon, ladies and gents! It’s an exciting afternoon here at E&B. Why? We’ve added a grand spankin’ new line to our repertoire, and we’re all stoked as can be to introduce all of you to it! So without further ado, may I present: HANGUPS & BAGGAGE!

Pretty, right?

Earlier this year at the New York International Gift Show, we had the distinct pleasure of meeting Philly-based artist Kim Kamens, who’s launched a stunning line of fabulous pieces designed to solve not one, but two problems that everyone could always use a little help with. First, just about everyone’s home has at least one blank wall that could use something unreasonably pretty on it. No shame. It’s valuable real estate and sometimes it’s tough to find that perfect piece. Second… admit it. We could all stand to be a little more organized in general, right? Well, marvel, good folks, as two birds meet one stone! This exciting line of original wall-mounted designs not only look gorgeous, but will replace all of your traditional coat racks, hat racks, mail holders and key hooks with one smart, durable piece. These wall mounts aren’t just sleek, modern and fun, they’re incredibly functional and easy to hang. Magnets, you guys! Who doesn’t love magnets?

There are a number of designs to choose from. For instance, the WALLPAPER is inspired by a vintage wallpaper pattern that seamlessly combines modern simplicity with antique motifs, making it an easy fit into just about any design scheme. But don’t let the pretty design fool you! This is one tough, dependable piece. Made from powder-coated steel, the large 36″ x 36″ size (shown below) is known as the “workhorse,” since it’s designed to hold everything from heavy jackets to scarves to handbags, mail and keys. And I’m sure that’s not even everything. Feel free to get creative!

WALLPAPER – Before

WALLPAPER – After

Meanwhile, the KOI is a perfect marriage of form and function. The fluid lines and dramatic, expressive movement make it an arresting piece of artwork. But, again, don’t let the pretty design fool you! It’s also a strong, durable and incredibly useful piece of artwork. The spaces between the scales are perfect for organizing mail, displaying photographs, and hanging anything from handbags to scarves to jewelry. Made from tough powder-coated steel as well, this large 48″ x 24″ piece (shown below) makes a bold statement, while helping you keep your space neat, tidy and organized, especially if you share your space with other folks. Once it’s yours, I suspect you’ll wonder what you ever did without it!

KOI - Before

KOI – After

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There are other designs to choose from and all designs come in both a small and large size, plus a variety of different colors. For more info about all of Hangups & Baggage’s different designs, colors, sizes and pricing, feel free to drop us a line at info@ellaandboss.com or give us a ring at 703.992.8283. Happy shopping!!!

The Mothers Remember…

April 30, 2012

Hey, everybody! Resident Male here with a quick reminder that Mother’s Day is fast approaching! (Sunday, May 13, for the record.) Yes, yes, yes… We’ve heard it all before. “Boo Mother’s Day! It’s nothing more than a sinister invention created by the greeting card industry, at the behest of the International Society of Trufflemasons, who are totally in bed with the Florists Templar, who are totally pulling the strings of Brunchus Dei…” But come on, everybody! It’s your freaking Mom! Do something nice and thoughtful for your Mom, y’all! (And stop watching the History Channel on Saturday afternoons!) But if you need some help this year, never fear! Ella & Boss is here to help, of course. Here’s a list of 5 of our favorite Mother’s Gifts gifts, all under $75.00, and available now at Ella&Boss:

1. Deluxe Candles from The House & Home Collection by LAFCO ($49.99)

LAFCO’s House and Home Candle Collection is specifically designed to create an elegant atmosphere and compliment the ambiance and decor of each room in your home. Each candle is 16 oz., burns for approximately 90 hours and comes in a charming 4″ x 4″ hand-blown, art glass jar, which can be reused in so many ways once you’ve finished with the candle. And just to warn you, they’re all so pretty you’ll want to collect and display them all. With 10 truly awesome and unique scents to choose from, from the cozy, comforting Redwood and Cedar “Den” candle to the light, serene Lotus Flower and Cyclamen “Tea House” candle, you’re sure to find the scent that’s perfect for Mom.

2. Canvas Cosmetics Bag by Rebecca Ray Designs ($29.99)

Mom’s always on the go, right? So there’s nothing more necessary than having a great little bag to keep all your little odds and ends together and close at hand. Well, here’s a great fashionable, durable bag from the good folks at Rebecca Ray Designs. Made from the same tough, heavy cotton duck as their tote bags, this unlined little guy is perfect for safely storing all your cosmetics and small items as you run errands around town or travel cross-country. Plus, it comes in a variety of fun, bright colors, so you’re sure to find the one that best suits your personal style, and features two of Rebecca Ray’s signature harness grade D-Rings.

3. Engraved Social Card Set by Bell’Invito ($54.99-$72.99)

It’s like Mom always said: Nothing says, “I appreciate your friendship and I wasn’t raised in a barn,” quite like a handwritten note on an elegant piece of stationery. Taking the time to add that personal touch to your message is always a surefire way to warm a friend’s heart or charm someone you long to impress. Make each “I Love You,” “Thank You,” and “Congratulations!” truly stand out with a set of engraved social cards by Bell’Invito. Each set comes with twelve thick cotton 5″ x 7″ cards, and twelve corresponding hand-lined envelopes. Plus, it all comes packaged in a smart little box that will not only help you stay organized, but also makes a pretty little addition to any writing desk. And since there are so many beautiful designs to choose from, you’re sure to find one that suits your style and personality, or, if giving a gift, those of your loved one. Inspire a little paper envy with Bell’Invito today!

4. Deluxe Body Brush with Dusting Silk by Lady Primrose ($32.99)

Don’t worry, boys, I wasn’t sure what this was at first either, but this smart acrylic-handled body brush comes with its own built-in, refillable compartment, and 0.5oz box of Lady Primrose’s fabulous Dusting Silk. Once you place the silk in the chamber, one twist unlocks the brush and releases the silk right onto the bristles. How cool is that? It couldn’t be easier! Lady Primose’s Dusting Silk is a naturally absorbent powder made with crushed chamomile and marigold flowers, and blended with silk and plant extracts. It also contains the mighty acai berry, which is packed full of anti-oxidants, amino acids and reparative omega-3 fatty acids. So not only is it super healthy, it also softens, soothes, and protects your skin, and, of course, it smells like heaven. (We don’t do stinky here.) Stylish, easy to use, and easy to travel with, this body brush makes a great gift and a welcome addition to your Mom’s vanity.

5. Royal Extract Body Creme with Engraveable Lid ($49.99)

Everyone knows by now that the secret to looking youthful isn’t plastic surgery or Botox injections; it’s all about keeping your skin moisturized and well-nourished. As luck would have it, this rich, delicately scented body crème by Lady Primrose does just that. Chocked full of healthy, natural ingredients like Royal Jelly, honey, Vitamins C and E, peptides, anti-oxidants and collagen builder, this crème eliminates dryness and stubborn wrinkles, producing younger, softer and more supple skin. Plus, the 5 oz. jar is reusable, and comes with a tarnish free 3″ x 3.25″ nickelplated top, which is perfect for engraving. If you’re looking for a great gift, you can be sure that this is one that will be treasured by Mom for years to come.

But if you don’t see the perfect one here, we’ve got tons and tons more stuff over at the mothership. Go check it out! And while you’re at it, why not pick up a little something for yourself? I mean it’s not like Mom would even be celebrating Mother’s Day without you, right? (Seriously, though. Do not tell her I said that!!!) But no matter what you order, you can be sure that Mom will go absolutely gaga, and not to worry, we’ll definitely get it to Mom before the big day!

Happy shopping, and an even happier Mother’s Day to you and yours! (And mine! Hi Mom!). Until next time!

Your Tote Bag Is Waiting. Come and Jump On It!

March 12, 2012

Buy it! My pony!

Uh oh! We done did it again, folks! As of this morning, we have a yet another fabulous line to add to the E&B family! Today, it’s our distinct pleasure to introduce you to Rebecca Ray Designs, a line that made us go particularly gaga at this year’s New York International Gift Show.

If you’ve perused this blog before, then you probably know that all of us here are big fans of animals, both real and stuffed. (Goshdarnit, that video’s going viral, if I have to sneeze links all over the entire internet!) So much so, in fact, that on my last birthday, the ladies and I played hookey and went to our local animal shelter to play with all the puppies and kitties. BEST BIRTHDAY EVER! Also, yes, we are extremely wonderful people, thank you! (Buy our things!) And a special shout-out to my soulmate kitty, Big Pun, who hopefully found a good home where he continues to crush a lot. But aaanyway… Back to the story. Since we big animal lovers, naturally, we were all impressed by this bright, whimsical, incredibly sophisticated line of handbags, totes, and carrying cases inspired by what we dandies in the horsey set might call, the sporting life. Horse, dog and handbag lovers should take notice!

By far, Rebecca Ray’s most famous and bestselling product is the MaryAnn Race Horse Tote, which is a beaucoup chic, and impressively strong, roomy way to carry everything you could possibly need or want everywhere you go – from the beach to the gym to the grocery store to the carpool and all points in between – all the while making everybody who sees you seethe with jealousy, because… Well, because they just make you look really cool. There’s no better way to say it! The Race Horse Tote, in particular, features an image from a vintage grain sack screenprinted across a canvas of tough, heavy, cotton duck. A little bit of that old-school meets modern feel that all the kids are into these days. But don’t worry all of their bags are made from the same awesome, strong material and additionally feature thick leather trimmed handles, a wide interior pocket, a zippered closure and Rebecca Ray’s signature chocolate brown, 100% cotton, floral lining. Plus, all the hardware is inspired by the rings and buckles and whistles you’d find on saddles and bridles. In fact, they’re made from equestrian-grade nickel! Check ’em out!

Horsey!

Doggie!

Fishie!

As you can see, the MaryAnn comes in a number of different styles with different animals, and a variety of fun, bright colors that are sure to get you noticed. (In the good way, of course!) And tote bags aren’t all Rebecca Ray makes. They’ve got all manner of products that manage to make you look really cool, while also making your life easier. We’ve got all sorts of elegant, durable, and eminently useful duffel bags, computer totes, dopp kits, cosmetic bags, pet accessories and so much more for sale right now!

Happy hunting! RM, out! – XO

…And You Get a Candle! And You Get a Candle! And You Get a Candle!

March 8, 2012

It's LAFCOOOOOOOOOO!!!

First, we all went crazy for salt water taffy. Then Calypso music. Sweater capes. Platform sandals. And now, the once and forever Queen of Daytime has issued a new proclamation to us, her loyal subjects. Yes, after much breathless anticipation, finally, the announcement of another one of her fabulous Favorite Thi-

I’m sorry, what’s that? Oh. Huh. OK, LP has just informed that all those things were just 30 Rock jokes, and not actually any of Oprah’s Favorite Things. Interesting. I have a sweater cape to return this afternoon I guess.

Well, no matter, I have it on very good authority that the newest line to join the E&B family is, in fact, one of Miss Winfrey’s Favorite Things, and we’re honored to welcome them aboard. Back on her 2007 Favorite Things special, O introduced the fantastic House & Home Collection by LAFCO to, naturally, much screaming, fainting, gnashing of teeth and rending of clothes. But here’s the thing. You guys? After a few days working amongst these deluxe, soy-based scented candles here in the office, and luxuriating in their calming, delicate and downright delicious scents, I think all of us here can totally understand the excitement. I mean they literally reek of elegance! And knowing what I know now, I’m not ashamed to say that I wouldn’t be above crane kicking a seatmate or pulling a little weave out to get my mitts on one. Just sayin’. (Not Oprah’s weave, of course. I’m not suicidal!)

Luckily, however, none of us ever has to resort to those sorts of desperate measures again, because now these gorgeous, beautifully scented candles are just one click away!

LAFCO’s House and Home Candle Collection is specifically designed to create an elegant atmosphere and compliment the ambiance and decor of each room in your home. Each candle is 16 oz., burns for approximately 90 hours and comes in a charming 4″ x 4″ hand-blown, art glass jar, which can be reused in so many ways once you’ve finished with the candle. And just to warn you, they’re all so pretty you’ll want to collect and display them all. With 10 truly awesome and unique scents to choose from, from the cozy, comforting Redwood and Cedar “Den” candle to the light, serene Lotus Flower and Cyclamen “Tea House” candle, you’re sure to find the scent that’s perfect for you. And at $54.99? For a huge candle, that lasts forever and smells incredible? Pretty awesome. Oprah knows what’s up, right?

Oprah swears to tell the truth...

Be sure to head on over to the LAFCO page at Ella & Boss and pick one up for your favorite room today!

Until next time! RM, out! -XO

Like Don Draper, Only Cuter!

February 24, 2012

Ok, it’s confession time. 1. As a child, I was obsessed – OBSESSED!!! – with stuffed animals. Yes, I was cuteness hoarder. I probably had in excess of 200 at the height of my addiction. It was quite something. And 2. Often, I would set them up like a chorus, turn off the lights, and perform a little musical revue that I’m sure thoroughly embarrassed my poor mother at dinner parties. Sadly, that’s really really true.

That said, I’m sure you can imagine that, in my estimation at least, a stuffed animal that sings and dances on its own would be the pinnacle of human achievement. Well, I’m happy to say that we can now all relax, because the Kuchipaku Animal Speaker has arrived!

Cutest ever!!!

You have to admit these cute little guys (bunny, penguin, frog, and elephant) are pretty awesome, and I bet they aren’t like any stuffed animal you’ve ever seen. You see, all you need are two AA batteries (included) and any device that plays music (stereo, iphone, ipod, etc.). Plug the provided cord into the device’s headphone jack, press play, and all of a sudden your new best friend starts singing and dancing along with the music. And the best part? It’s a great speaker that provides clear, crisp, wonderful sound. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also an internal microphone that can pick up sound even from across a crowded room. Switch the setting, place them near a musical device and watch them come alive. If there’s a kid (or a kid at heart) in your life who loves music or animals or things that are just straight up adorable, this is hands down the best present you can find!

But don’t take my word for it! We recently hired a new advertising agency, The Stuffed Animal Robot Singers, and they’ve got a thing or two to say as well…

Give the gift of music, and pick one up of your very own today at Ella & Boss for just $74.99! Have an awesome weekend! XO -RM

“Puchi”‘s Got Something To Say

February 13, 2012

Hey hey, everybody! RM, here with some exciting news! First off, we’d just like to thank you all for your support! Business has been steady so far, and feedback has been positive, so we’d all just like to thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for stopping by and checking us out! And, of course, for telling all your friends!

Now, as all of you E&B-heads out there know, our mission is to always be on the lookout for awesome new stuff that makes your life easier, prettier and more comfortable. We do the shopping, so you don’t have to and all that jazz. Well, have we made a discovery for you! Recently, we headed up to the Big Apple for the NY International Gift Show, a humungous showcase in the Javits Center for furniture, lighting, and home accessory designers from around the globe to introduce all their latest and greatest designs and innovations. Naturally, we were running around like kids on a Pixie Stix bender, and came away with so many incredible new products and ideas that we’ll be rolling out in the next few weeks and months.

Today, we want to introduce you to one of our new faves now available at Ella & Boss. You’ve probably been wondering feverishly about the latest technology in bathroom towels. (Duh. Who doesn’t?) Well, fret no longer, we found a company from Japan called Morihata, who dazzled us with a new towel that’s not only supremely soft and functional, but also just looks really, really cool! Ladies and gents, the PUCHI PUCHI TOWEL!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know that “Puchi” sounds like something you want to shoot into space, namely this guy. In Japanese, however, “Puchi Puchi” means bubble wrap, and in this particular case, also refers to a line of fabulous, super-soft, lightweight guest, face and bath towels. Now, you’re probably thinking we’ve lost our minds. The idea of drying off with plastic babble wrap after a shower is after all rather strange, I know. But it’s an entirely different story when the idea of bubble wrap is applied to terry cloth. Not only do these modern, one-of-a-kind towels just look fresh and modern hanging out in your bath, but their unique, distinctive texture is designed to provide you with maximum fluffiness and absorbency. Each of the three available colors fits easily into any bathroom decor, and each comes in three different sizes: Bath (24.75″ x 50″), Face (13.75″ x 31″) and Guest (13.75″ x 13.75″). So go ahead and pick up a set or two or feel free to mix and match. Any you choose are guaranteed to make sure you and your guests always end your bathroom routine in a state of comfy, cozy nirvana!

So there you have it! As of this afternoon, the Puchi Puchi Towel is popping 24/7 over at E&B. Be sure to race over and pick up a few of your very own today!

Thanks and have a fantastic afternoon everybody!!! XO -RM

The Cognac Has Landed!

January 12, 2012

Hi friends! So for the last few weeks, our bestselling item by far has been the Shaved Shagreen iPhone cases by Vivo Studios. (Thank you to all you lovely bloggers who provided links to us, btw!) And when I say “bestselling,” I mean… [Cut to 10 minutes later] I mean like the new ones went live literally 5 minutes ago and I just got a phone call from a very, very friendly lady in Cali who’s apparently been waiting to pounce for three days! How cool is that?!

Well, for anyone else who’s been wondering, yes, we did indeed finally get a new shipment of cases this morning! Hooray! Unfortunately, our stock is still limited due to the lingering effects of Thailand’s hurricane season, which shut down production for a little while. Therefore, if the recent past is any indication, you’re gonna have to act fast. But, if you do, you can get one of your very own right now! (Go! Go! Go!) But that’s not all the exciting news! Oh no no! Today, we’re stoked to introduce a brand new color to the shagreen family. Ladies and germs, may I present… COGNAC!

In the past, the cases that have sold out the fastest have been the bright colors, but when we saw this rich, deep chocolatey brown, we knew we had something special and had to share them with all of you. I mean I’m not sure you normally think “elegant” when you think of an iPhone case, right? Well, thankfully this case isn’t normal. 🙂 If bright and flashy and pink isn’t your thing, here’s the sharp, more understated (but not boring!) color you’ve been waiting for!

To purchase this case, or any of our others ($69.99 + SH), click this right here. And feel free to check out all of our other awesome accessories and gizmos and doodads while you’re over there. You never know what you might find!

Have a fab day! RM, out!
