 She’s the girl with killer style, very tomboy and rocker-chic Barbie on a super minimalist kick. She’s Blair Badge—the fashion and beauty maven at the blog Love, Blair. Here, you’ll find a palette of black, white and gray ensembles that have an air of high-fashion couture meets moody sophistication with a touch of Goth for the hell of it.

If the words free beauty school drop-in don’t make your heart aflutter, you’re dead inside. The Grand Rapids Public Library’s Summer Reads program promises a time of beauty to promote the book The Life List by Lori Nelson Spielman. The local Michigan author’s book features a woman who, in order to receive her inheritance money from her mother (who happened to be the head of a large cosmetics company), must accomplish everything on a life aspirations list made when she was 14.

Your underwear and Kori Jock need to talk. Jock, who is based out of Kalamazoo, is the underwear fairy Godmother taking forgotten T-shirts and turning them into handmade undies made from recycled and eco-forgiving materials that are also hand screen-printed. Jock has been making her own undies since 2005, and pretty much hasn’t had a wedgie since.

True story. Lamenting over the perfect bookcase kept me up at night. That is until I ordered a bookcase from Via Logistics and saved myself the time and gas money and had the item delivered to my home and assembled—all for a very reasonable price.

The Spring Peddlers’ Market in in downtown Zeeland is an artfully curious fare filled with apparel and accessories, household gifts and goods, antiques and repurposed finds, architectural salvage, vintage furniture and décor and other curiosities.

The Grand Rapids-based Etsy shop LoveCharles has a philosophy when it comes to its hand-selected, classic vintage clothing from the 1930s to 1980s. “It’s important for people to realize vintage can be easily incorporated into a modern wardrobe and not look like a costume,” said Lily Greig, the owner, photographer and curator.

I love getting mail. I love shopping local. Put the two things together and you'll understand my appreciation for thinking inside the box. Boxed GR is a local, monthly subscription club (similar to Birchbox and BarkBox) where subscribers receive a box filled with products, samples, gift cards and other goodies from businesses in the Grand Rapids area.

As if you didn't have enough competition, now children have the ability to look more fashionable than you and it's all thanks to Sydney's Boutique (1479 Lake Dr. SE, Grand Rapids). The Mini Mogul Group clothing line is something to love. It's clothing for kids, by kids—a project in partnership with Sydney's owner Kristian Grant and her daughter Sydney, whom the boutique is named after.
