I love the smell of leather. I’m not sure that I would want to smell like it all day, but if you do then pick yourself up some of this leather soap.

I don’t know if these would actually work, but if they do they’d be a great summer buy. And I bet they smell better than can-o-bugspray.

Burt’s Bees Body Wash

So I was at my local healthy foods that are somewhat overpriced but make you feel good about yourself store, and I needed some body wash. Now, I won’t lie to you. I usually just use my shampoo as body wash, but I was feeling fancy. So I go over to the body wash aisle and there were seriously at least 40 different kinds of body wash. I hate shopping for hygiene products. Anyway, this was the only bottle that wasn’t guava-watermelon-daisy or lima bean-grapefruit-rose extract or yucca-cantaloupe-rose extract-eye of newt scented, so I picked it up. Well, what can I tell you? My skin is clean and I don’t smell like a fucking greenhouse. Also, I have not become noticeably more attractive to bees.

This is a great idea for backpacking/traveling/hopping trains/whatever. Maybe it will even help you avoid those horrid hostel restrooms that have graffiti in all sorts of languages you can’t read but you’re fairly sure all of it says something along the lines of “I had sex in this shower.” Anyway, this shampoo apparently even suds up with salt water, so take a trip to the beach.

$12.50 for 60 sheets from The Spoon Sisters

You can show off your fashion sense even when you get a boo-boo with these. They have all sorts of comic book fightin’ words, like WHAM! and POW! The only other thing you need is a good superhero name and you’ll be set.

$5.50 from Bibelot

And to follow the last post, here’s an accessory you really, really need. Is it a switchblade? Is it a comb? It’s a comb.

American Greaser Supply Pomade

Are you missing something from that James Dean look you’ve been perfecting? I know I am – it’s the cool attitude and the cigs in the sleeve. If it’s your hair that’s the problem, though, this pomade may or may not be the ticket. I’ve never used it, so I can’t vouch for its effectiveness, but the can looks really sweet.
