Creature Comforts
This bright, striped kit from Bath Bloomers has everything a girl on the go needs to keep herself well groomed and in good spirits: a folding foot file, an exfoliating towel, emery boards, a terrycloth headband, buffing grains, body cream, shower gel, bath salts, and a scented candle. All you need to remember is your toothbrush ($85).

Be in Sync
You swore you'd never, ever sing in public, but there you were, mike in hand, belting out a few rounds on karaoke night at Lee's Hawaiian. And now you're hooked. Practice in private with the Singing Machine. Here's how: Play one of 80 available pop, rock, and R&B CDs (two-CD packs are $20 each), and the lyrics appear on a seven-inch video screen so you can sing along ($199).

Case Study
It's no mean feat to find a CD-storage unit that's both stylish and practical. Ikea's Hejan rack consists of three zippered nylon boxes that hang from a wall-mounted aluminum frame. The portable, detachable cubes hold fourteen disks each and slip off for road trips. In black or orange ($12.95).
