I have a lot of pairs of shoes. Too many, according to my husband. And since we have limited closet space, it's caused many arguments.

I have very thick hair that has a mind of its own. For years, I longed to be able to rock a casual baseball cap on a hot summer day. The problem? My long locks simply won't allow it.

These Popular Pimple Patches That Save My Skin

This Page Holder That's Sleek and Stylish

via: Amazon

I'm a big reader, and I refuse to read a book on my phone, tablet, or any other type of electronic screen.

This page holder helps me keep my place and multitask in the best way possible.

This Universally Flattering Lipstick That Works On Literally Everyone

via: Amazon / LawyerMom

I'm a pale, pale redhead, so finding the right shade of lipstick is always a struggle.

This Laundry Guard That Keeps Your Socks From Disappearing

via: Amazon

I've had a problem with missing socks for as long as I've been doing laundry.

This Collapsible Diffuser That Make Curls Look Fab

There are few things less satisfying than cracking open a cold one on a hot day.

This Handbag Holder That Attaches To Your Headrest
