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).

Bedazzled Baby
Got a budding Bob Dylan or Britney? Tell the world with a studded baby tee. This mini muscle shirt comes in black or white cotton and says rock star on the front ($36).
Apartment 48
48 West 17th St., between Fifth and Sixth Aves.


Personal Statements
Have something to tell the world? Each of these Body Talk tins includes 800 temporary tattoos — all letters and symbols — that should help you get your message across. Choose from three themed sets: original, romantic, and popular phrases and sayings ($16).
