    A quiet but powerful force

    A quiet but powerful force: a stealth jet, cowboys from old westerns, and the 1875 Watts of power blowing out of the Conair Ionic Quiet Dryer. I’ve used mine for three years, and although it is reliable and dries my shoulder-length hair in less than five minutes, I never thought much of it until my roommate borrowed the dryer a month ago. While handing it back to me, she remarked, “That is an incredible hairdryer.” I cocked my head, “Really?” I responded, “I bought it at Target for like 25 bucks.” But she insisted that she’d never found a dryer that could set her curls in such record time. And then I thought about how, despite having hairdryers provided for my use, I lug my own to the gym every morning and take it with me on overnight stays to friend’s houses. Indeed, I’ve learned that nothing delivers quite the results of this hairdryer. Considering it is so inexpensive, it’s information worth passing along. $17.98 from Amazon.

    Must Haves

    It’s May

    It’s May, and you’ve been working all winter and early spring to keep your body trim and svelte in order to squeeze into that summer bikini. Okay, not really. But you’ve been on a major workout kick since the first time the temperature hit 60 degrees, and you are determined to show off your efforts by Memorial Day. Why not reward all your hard work with a new bikini? Victoria’s Secret is having a swim sale, with gorgeous suits to flatter your body (the makers of the quintessential push-up bra making bathing suit tops—can you say cleavage?). The metallic gleam of this Body by Victoria halter top and scoop bottom will accentuate your bronze tan and the shimmering water drops clinging to your beach perfect skin. In other words, it’s sure to give you the extra boost of confidence you need, even if you skip a few mornings at the gym. On sale for $28 per piece.

    Must Haves

    While you love springtime

    While you love springtime, you cringe at the thought of wearing pastel. Black is your color, no matter what season it is, but fall and winter are so much more amenable to your dark and brooding wardrobe. But black is not off limits for spring, it just needs to be adopted into warm weather styles. This Magaschoni Black Crochet Cashmere Tunic Sweater is the perfect example of how to pull off black in the springtime: a lightweight crochet-knit cashmere for a breathable, weather-appropriate texture, and ribbed banding beneath the chest and around the waist for svelte definition. And if you get hit with an especially strong wave of spring fever, layer it over a pink or turquoise camisole. $104 from Bluefly, which is offering 20% off sweaters and coats until March 3.
