[ETSY] Bakelite Business Card Holder

When I got my first real job, my father bought me one of those golden businesscard holders that are only used by douchebags.  I can't hold it against him, he thinks I am a powerful lady performing powerful lady business, and his view of what I do all day is probably summed up in this Saturday Night Live sketch

Needless to say, I don't carry that thing around.  This Bakelite Business Card Holder ($20) is a cooler version of that.

My 5 Best Gifts: Raina Cox from If the Lamp Shade Fits 

Let's face it: giving the perfect gift to someone is like standing on top of a mountain and shouting, "HEY EVERYONE, I'M NOT AN EMOTIONAL CRIPPLE!"   

My 5 Best Gifts is a recurring feature that asks people to give up the goods on the best gifts they've given or received. 

Raina Cox is a Denver-based interior designer, and the voice behind the hilarious blog, If the Lamp Shade Fits.  Who better to get gift suggestions from than the woman who declares that life is "too short to live ugly?"

[YOU'RE WELCOME] Memorial Day BBQs

Memorial Day Weekend is upon us, and, of course, it signifies the official start of the summer.

Forget the fact that if you've been in the Northeast the past few weeks, the rainy, depressing weather has probably got you wanting to slit your wrists just so you can see some goddamned color.

Here comes the sun, everyone.


What's that, Jessie Spano? You are so excited, so excited, so scared for this gift guide to summer BBQs?

Damn straight.

[High/Low] Kathryn M. Ireland's Picks

There is this phenomenon that happens when I am either shopping or drunk: I turn into a millionaire.  

I am oblivious to how much things cost.  A $70 cab ride from New Jersey to Brooklyn?  WORTH IT.  A $15,000 gingham shirt from J. Crew? Wrap it up!  It will look great with my boat shoes!

This is obviously stupid, considering I work in media and my paycheck typically amounts to a pile of thumbtacks and candy bar wrappers. 

Kathryn M. Ireland, one of Elle Decor's Top 25 Decorators for 2011, and a castmember on Bravo's upcoming new reality show, Million Dollar Decorators, has taught me an important lesson. 

Shop the fuck around.  

You can get great stuff that only looks expensive, without making your bank account cry.
