I've been meaning to add a pair of handsome cords to my closet but haven't found "Mr. Right." These J.Crew Toothpick Ankle Cords ($20-$40, originally $80) might be him. I love the rolled cuffs and the cool gray hue. It's also available in black, navy, dark aubergine, dark charcoal, soft ocre, and warm maple.
Surfing is a skill I've yet to master but it's still fun to watch . . . and when you add dogs to the equation, it just becomes even more so. Check out this calendar's photo shoot — I'm stoked!
If you have a furry little troublemaker on your hands – always trying to sink his teeth into something dangerous – then an electrical cord protector is a must have. Keeping a safeguard around your TV, cable, or stereo cords is a good idea so that your pet doesn't get the shock of his life when he feels the need to chew.
Thankfully, you can get a protector on the cheap at Ikea or by shopping online. This cord protector is only six bucks ($6) but can save you a ton of worry and hassle, and it's clear so you don't have too much of a distraction running along your floorboards. Best yet, if your pet doesn't know better than to take curious chews on cords, it's infused with a citrus scent to deter any naughty nibbles. When I lived with rabbits, however, we had something a little tougher, and a lot bigger, because they were quite the super chewers!
