SJP: One woman, three initials and lots of shoe porn

There’s not a single self-respecting shoe fanatic that doesn’t know who Carrie Bradshaw is. She is solely responsible (just had to do it) for bringing high-end designer names like Manolo Blahnik into the homes of middle-America on HBO’s hit series “Sex and the City.” Thank goodness for the rest of…

Get giddy over Hello Kitty

Whether you’re 5 or 35, how could you not love Hello Kitty? From wallets and school supplies to iPhone cases and apparel (and now Smart Cars?!), you’re never too young (or too old) to have a Hello Kitty stash. I remember getting my first Hello Kitty item as a Christmas present…
