Valentine’s Day – Catbird Style

 Valentine’s Day – Catbird Style


By Polina Roytman


With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and our love for Catbird, the store that we truly consider heaven on earth, we couldn’t resist making our Valentine’s Day picks an homage to the store who’s motto is “we love all things tiny, shiny and gold.” Be still my heart!

Below is a list of four of our favorite items this week, of which #3 and #4 we already own. Hey, a girl needs to prep for the big day! But be sure to browse their site for a lot more goodies. If we listed everything we loved on here we’d end up posting the entire site.

1. Heart Memory Ring in Rose Gold  &  Heart Ring in Rose Gold
This is a two-in-one depending on your ring size and how you wish to wear the ring. The Heart Memory Ring is meant to be worn as a knuckle ring, but also serves as a handy way to save a few bucks if your regular ring size runs small. This style comes in sizes 1.5 to 4.5 online, but you can call the store to speak with someone if you need a full size. The Heart Ring runs from size 5 to 8 in both full and half sizes. Both rings also come in yellow gold or silver options.
[$64 for sizes 1.5 to 4.5, $96 for sizes 5 to 8]
To reach the store during business hours please call 718.599.3457

2. Classic Heart Studs in Rose Gold
If you’re more an earrings girl but still want the heart detail, this one is for you. Also available in yellow gold or silver.
[$96, pair]

3. Isa’s Restoratives Lilac Rouge
The site says they’re officially obsessed with this rouge, and so are we! A fine tinted salve that can be used on cheeks and lips. A dash of natural color, while nourishing and protecting the skin. All organic Ingredients: Macadamia oil, Avocado oil, Alkanet root, Lilac fragrance.
[$22 for 1oz]

4. Horn Comb
Untangle your tangles in style. Horn combs absorb oils, do not produce static electricity, are gentler on the scalp and much easier to use, even on tangled hair. No one comb is the same, which makes each one all the more special. Approx 5″.
[$8 per comb]

 Say Something By Polina Roytman This video of Jackson’s deeply emotional reaction to ‘Say Something’ by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera has been making the rounds and I can’t get over it. It is so incredibly touching to see how powerful music is and what it is capable of. He’s four years old and most likely doesn’t even [...]
