Violet Love Winter Head Bands
Never miss a local story.
Winter headbands for women in solid colors? So boring. The Los Angeles-based Violet Love has produced patterned headbands, about 5 inches wide, enough to fully cover your ears, lined with fleece-like “PETA-approved vegan fabrics.” You can even get an assorted gift pack for $44, because, really, who wants to wear the same headband two days in a row on the slopes?
Posh Mobile Micro X S240
Just when it seems smartphone screens are getting ever bigger, along comes a company that offers a downsized phone (for Android users) the size of a credit card. Why would someone want such a squint-inducing phone? It’s being marketed as a “second phone” for travelers and outdoors lovers who don’t want the bulkiness of a full-size phone. Just pop out your SIM card and you’re good to go.
