The Cool Factor

{ Via: Lulu Frost }

The Cool Factor. You either have it or you don't. According to the Urban Dictionary, Cool is "the best way to say something is neat-o, awesome, or swell. The phrase "cool" is very relaxed, never goes out of style, and people will never laugh at you for using it. This roundup features items that made me say "Oh Wow," when I first found it. Find a Box of Cool, retro cool skates, artistic fire extinguishers and more.

HERE: Ten Picks That Are Cool 
To The Max  

Press For Champagne Framed Vintage Button
Vintage is always cool, but the real cool factor here is that this button really rings! Who doesn't need one of these? The only thing better would be if the butler came with it.

Box Of Cool
If you want to look like you know what's happening, gift a cool girl with this limited edition set. It features the brand, ncLA's never seen before and coolest LA inspired shades. The coolest fact about this set is that ncLA is proudly a 5-free luxury nail lacquer, meaning lacquers are 100 percent free of DBP, toulene, formaldehyde, camphor and animal testing. 

Diane Von Furstenberg Silk Stripes
Bold is always cool in my book. And these pants are striped with style for Spring! I bet that you don't have a pair like these in your wardrobe.

Monkey Business Decorating Tool
As simple as ABC! Simply fill, squeeze, and write on cakes, cupcakes, cookies and more. It's a fun find for any baker in your life. Write on!

MAC's Bold and Bad Lash 
I am quite excited to know about this product. The eye makeup is actually encased in a dual chamber package. This separates two wands and two different eyelash formulas for the upper and lower lashes.  I have always felt the need for this, and tend to make a mess of the lower lashes. For the record, I have not tried this, but have used a MAC mascara for many years, in the past. It was a great product.

Safe T Fire Extinguishers
We all need one. Why not have one that looks cool? Let's face it, if you own one, it should be at hand and nearby. With 21 stylish designs, you'll want to have one on display. It makes a creative gift for the person that has everything.

Turn Signal Commuter Backpack
Cycling after sundown can be tricky and downright dangerous. The blinking arrow on this pack will alert drivers behind you when you ride or run in the dark. A great gift for yourself or a college student. Genius!

Oral-B Pro 7000 SmartSeries Electronic  Toothbrush with Bluetooth Connectivity
Because there are bluetooth/white-tooth puns for days.  Stay connected even when brushing. It's your personal dental hygienist. 
Powered by OralB.

Olas Marine Bio Active Mouth Rinse
Have you ever read the label on your mouthwash? Most of the words you can't pronounce. I for one, am done with chemicals in my food, oral care, and skincare. This formula has been created by Dentist and surfer, Dr. Perez. It is infused with naturally rich Sea Salts, Algee, and Seaweed. Combined with organic essential oils, CoQ10 and Echinacea...a few of my favorite things. It is free of alcohol, fluoride, anything artificial or fragrance. All you have is a gentle effective rinse with long lasting results, and a flavor created by chef Jean Georges Vongerichton. Read about it at

Moxie Suede Ice Skates
As a kid and teen, I owned my own ice skates. They were kind of a big deal - pompoms and all. These premium skates are retro cool. And who really wants to put their feet in 
a rental pair? Ewe!

Saturdays At Shop This: Let's Get Healthy

This year I didn't make any New Year's Resolutions. As you may know, I had a broken leg for the last quarter of the year. My workout regime was really stunted. Now that the healing is underway, I am going to amp up my fitness levels. Care to join me? Here are ten links that will help you achieve your own healthy goals. 

FabFitFun - Spring

 "Get Off Your Acids" Love that name! I saw this book by Daryl Gioffre on Live with Kelly & Ryan. I have come to believe that inflammation in our bodies causes most of our physical problems.....from IBS, weight gain, arthritis, cancer, etc. This book talks about inflammation and how we should alkalize our bodies.  I am ordering this book to learn more.

I am one that likes to look good while I workout. And my workout wardrobe could use a "refresh." You simply must shop Moda Operandi's Fitness edit. It's their first entree into activewear, and it is fabulous. There's something for every girl, no matter what your workout style.

A good night's sleep is essential to your health and weight loss. If a new mattress is on your list, now is the time to shop. Save from 25% - 55% on mattresses at Bloomingdale's until January 21st. Best yet, if you are a loyalist member, you get a $100 reward card for every $1,000 spent on furniture and mattresses.

Have you ever studied the biological effects of micro wave ovens? If you are interested, read  this article. I do very little micro wave cooking except for heating my tea water. And with every cup I heated, I worried. Miss Shop This knows how I am, and gave me the Fellow Stagg Pourover Kettle for Christmas. I am ecstatic! No more bad energy in my tea. This kettle comes with its own built in thermometer. 
LOVE it!

I really dislike workout sneakers, unless they are the cute slip on fashion variety. This year I am, however, in need of a new pair of shoes for the gym. Here's a good pair on sale from Stella McCartney at Neiman Marcus.
