10 Things We Love 2/28/2011

1Academy Awards

Last night’s Oscars still have our conversations going. We loved the sequins, glamour and well earned awards. We’ve been up in arms over Cate Blanchett’s look. Love or loathe? What did you think? We’re undecided with half of us on either side.  Check out our favorite trends here.

2OPI Black Splatter Nail Color

Mikkel and Blaire are the number one advocates of the OPI Black Splatter nail color from the Katy Perry collection. It’s a crackle finish polish and is nearly impossible to buy right now, even if you’re willing to pay the normal $9 price! There are a couple bottles on Amazon and eBay upwards of $15, but your best bet is to get a mani and pedi at your nearby salon.

3Van Cleef & Arpels Exhibit

Set in Style: The Jewelry of Van Cleef & Arpels is now showing at the Cooper Hewitt National Museum and we reccommend that you stop by. The exhibit features one of a kind pieces by the French jewelry house that are to die for.

 

4A Cryo Cuff

Jenn’s boyfriend unfortunately needed to have surgery on his shoulder last Friday. Enter the the Cryo-cuff, an amazing contraption that is the high-tech version of an ice pack. You situate this on your shoulder and the ice cold water constantly flows to your shoulder from a cooler. While this clearly is the go-to-accessory post-surgery since all the pain is numbed away (alongside some TLC!), Jenn thinks it may also be effective for any serious athlete who needs some icing every once and a while.
