Is it just me or is Daisy looking better than ever these days?! Looks like the maltipoo got a trim to share the spotlight at Jessica Simpson's perfume launch in Dallas over the weekend – after all the fragrance is called "Fancy" so could she bring along a pup with a sloppy cut? I think not.I know North would remain atop that table for about one second . . . followed by breaking glass and his dive into the audience for kisses.

From country singer to pop star to hair extension creator, this multi-talented lady has done it all. Her latest venture takes her into the fragrance world. When I first heard of the aromas featured in Jessica Simpson's perfume, Fancy ($49-$59), I suddenly had the urge to make a sundae. Apricot, pear, toasted almonds, caramel? Yep, my teeth started aching just thinking about it.
The name of the perfume didn't raise my hopes; when something's described as "fancy," that usually means it's just the opposite. But upon experiencing my first whiff of the scent, I was pleasantly surprised. The aroma isn't as sticky-sweet as I envisioned — it's more sophisticated than the overly literal smells of Jess's earlier Dessert line. I loved Fancy's lightness of apricot and pear notes; and the vanilla helped to add a subtle balance to the blend. It's warm and inviting, and considering how men seem to go bananas for vanilla, it's a good first-date fragrance.
Although I'm impressed by the thought behind the blend, the floral notes — which include jasmine and gardenia — are just a little too, well, fancy for me. I like a hint of dirtiness in my fragrance, but if you love sweet, warm blends, Jessica's perfume is worth a sniff. Even though it's too vanilla for me (take that either way you like) it's pleasant and long-lasting, and it's bound to be a guilty pleasure of anyone who's normally opposed to the idea of celebrity fragrance in general.
Some tech-inspired jewelry can be, well, geeky and unattractive. Such is not the case with the Fancy line, created by designer Sally Brock, who has been designing jewelry since she was 13. The line, which is available online and at her Seattle, Washington studio, is made up of an impressive selection of handmade rings, earrings, bracelets and gifts with a distinctive geek flair. I adore the Measuring Tape Ring, $65, and the Double Bikini Ring, $200, which looks like a Hazmat symbol or propeller. Also, the Binary wedding Bands encrusted with gems offer a fun and colorful kick to the normally anesthetic-looking binary bands.
Since so many of you enjoy your coffee with cream and sugar, I thought I'd share this cute set with you. I'm a sucker for great design and clever innovation and Tonfisk's Newton Milk and Sugar Set definitely captures both. The sugar bowl acts as a lid for the milk and has a slick mechanism that will keep it still while you pour the milk.
Unfortunately, like most really great designs, this set doesn't come cheap. You can get it plain for $62 or with a gold interior for $125.
