What's out there: Mason jar kitchen soap and phone covers

September 22, 2013 

Kitchen soap: While those tall skinny containers of hand soap are great to have by the kitchen sink, these 16-ounce ones with a larger pump are definitely more practical, as well as attractive. Designed to look like mason jars, but made of plastic, the Fresh Picked Heirloom collection from Bath & Body Works at St. Clair Square in Fairview Heights comes in tantalizing scents like clementine, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Anjou Pear and Honeycrisp Apple. Each is $12.50.

Phone covers: Is there no end to making a smartphone stand out from all the others? If you can't afford the latest version of your iPhone, grab attention with this collection of photograph-quality, full-color inserts ( in a clear plastic case) for any iPhone 4 or 4S. The set is $14.80 and includes ears that are multi-pierced and tattoed, sport one giant diamond, show off long or no sideburns, an ear plug and, of course, Spock ears. You'll find the set at Fuego at St. Clair Square.
