alice + olivia for MAC

MAC looooves their limited-edition collaborations. Next up, the brand partnered with whimsy-heavy apparel brand Alice+Olivia, and while the packaging is fun and '80s-ish and the shades are nice, I'm personally not crazy-interested in turquoise pigment powder or yellow iridescent lip gloss. It'll still do well, because people freak out over everything MAC does (myself included, usually). Available July 8. 

Cafe Bustelo Thermos

It's finally summer, which is why I've been slacking on my updates (shit gets slow this time of year anyway). A few weeks ago, I went to Miami and discovered the darling Cafe Bustelo flagship cafe. Strangely, after I got back, I got a few Bustelo goodies delivered at work. Despite the fact that I rarely (and by rarely, I mean never) tote my own coffee around, I still like this thermos. The brand clearly wants to establish itself as lifestyle-y, a la Starbucks, and I say, go forth. Not only is their iced coffee a dream, but their pre-made sandwiches are pretty damn good too. Check it.
