A lesson in spatial awareness.
Iko Iko E-Commerce Launch
What: A curated (not cluttered) selection of high craft and design pieces. Accessories, furniture, clothing, and objects carefully consider form and function to improve any space.
Why: Rowena Sartin’s animal-print headband that twists without tying, Waka Waka’s zigzag coatracks, and Iko Iko’s steel melting ice cube candleholders.

My Dad Reads Too Many Books
What: Someone else’s recently retired pops gives abridged, to-the-point synopses and reviews on all the mystery and crime-related novels fit to criticize.
Why: The ratings. See how many hunchbacked, waterlogged, creeped-out, Irish-born, or plain old ambivalent shrugs each novel earns.
Where: Online at mydadreadstoomanybooks.blogspot.com.
What: Edgy takes on rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings veer more toward rock ’n’ roll than romance. Buck the system with a jet-black Swarovski crystal engagement ring in a gunmetal setting or fancy yourself the princess of the (lost?) city of Atlantis in the double box chain galactic necklace.
Why: Take 30 percent off sitewide with code DailyCandy30 thru Mar. 24.

Whole Truth Solutions
What: Each bar from the holistically minded husband-and-wife duo caters to a variety of skin types and is made and cut with completely natural, plant-based ingredients.
Why: Use Hello Vera for oily, acne-prone skin; Raw Honey & Oats for sensitive epidermis; and Crouching Tiger Hidden Jasmine for an equal-gender clean.

Sunday Set-Ups with Kathy Kaehler
What: Learn how to best prep your fruits, veggies, and protein on the weekend for easy, healthy workweek snack and meal assembly. Because if cooking a from-scratch, nutritious meal after work every day were easy, you’d already be doing it.
Why: Six recipes every week (such as baked kale with olive oil and sea salt), fitness tips, and workout ideas.
