H & M now lets you shop online. Can we get an amen?

Well parents, your retail desires have been granted. Or at least one of mine has. Because it’s official: H&M is now selling clothes online. Whoo! Following in the 2011 footsteps of Zara online, I am so happy to find H&M online now up and running starting today. It’s always been one of my favorite options for affordable, European-styled clothes and they happen to offer very cute kids wear too. Some of my kids’ favorite tees and little summer dresses are from H&M. The only problem is, not every store near me has a children’s department. And that’s New York...

You know, so I don’t end up with another dark, faux-Oriental rug. So I’m excited to discover what cool modular-floor carpet tiles company FLOR has just started doing to personalize the online shopping experience, and help insure that everyone loves their floor.

While overall, I admit I’m growing a little weary of all the membership-only shopping sites (and the subsequent eight million “OUR SALE IS STARTING!” alerts in my inbox each day), there is a new one I’m excited about. I love its focus on artistry, creativity and the kind of talented designers that we always get excited about when we discover them on Etsy. The new site BRIKA seems to me a bit like a cross between Fab, Uncovet and Joyus. It’s a rather minimalist site–all about beautiful items from artists and small brands you get to learn a little...
