This oversized basket is so stylish, but it's also one of the most important workhorses in your house for organizing the clutter. I use mine for corralling the kids' toys, but you can also use it as a laundry basket, a place to store throws and pillows in the bedroom or living room, pretty much anywhere you need some extra storage that also looks great!
A fantastic value, this Moroccan Pouf is made from genuine goatskin leather. It comes in two colors, both of which feature exquisite contrasting embroidery on top and along the seams. Note that it arrives unstuffed; most customers fill it with blankets or stuffing from the craft store.
Thanks to TikToker @scurtoworld for introducing me to this gorgeous eyeshadow palette with 60 different colors. There are metallics, mattes, glitters, shimmers, satins, and more. They're highly pigmented and blendable.
This Fossil bag couldn't be cuter with its leather and textile combination. It's just the right dose of pattern to make it unique and stylish on casual days. I love the signature key accent, too!
This may be the most fun workout you've ever tried. Grab a mini trampoline on Amazon for right around $40 and you'll enjoy three guided workouts with your purchase and an LCD monitor that tracks your workout metrics. One reviewer said it was "very secure" with a "good bounce." Don't think a trampoline can get your heart pumping? Send your kids outside on their own for 20 minutes and see what happens.
Being a grown-up lady doesn't mean you have to wear granny panties. But it also doesn't mean you should be forced to wear uncomfortable undergarments.
These set of six panties are made from breathable cotton, provide full coverage, and fit so perfectly to your body that you'll probably forget you're even wearing them.
I can't believe I've wasted so many years wearing the wrong type of undies!
These Kate Spade Earrings That Add Sparkle Without Being Too Flashy
Kate Spade is one of my favorite designers because this brand is both classic and quirky. Take these earrings for example. They're classic studs that aren't too crazy, heavy, or garish. However, they're also made of a colorful, glittery material that comes in different color schemes –– so they attract just enough attention to feel unique. Who doesn't love getting new jewelry for the holidays?
This Butter Saver That Gives You Fresh, Soft Butter Any Time
Wouldn't you love to have fresh, soft butter every morning? I know I'm not the only person who has tangoed with super hard butter straight from the fridge, but there's not a lot of options out there if I want to keep my butter fresh. Until now, that is. This unique save keeps your butter soft and tasty, and you can even leave it on your countertop without worry.
Why do I feel like this Angry Mama microwave cleaner resembles me on cleaning day? She may be grumpy, but she sure does deep clean your microwave! If someone zapped the chili or spaghetti sauce for too long and it spattered all over the place, she's your gal. Fill her with a mix of vinegar and water, then microwave her for seven minutes - the steam will loosen up all the gunk, so all you have to do is wipe it down with a paper towel!
I had one of these Conair Topsy Tail Kits as a kid and get super nostalgic every time I use it as an adult. It makes my hair look polished and "done" with minimal effort on my part, which is basically a miracle considering the amount of time I have to spend on myself every morning.
The makers of the Supoon claim it's the world's best cooking spoon, a claim so bold that I decided I had to try it. This silicone tool is sturdy at the tip but flexible on the sides. It includes measuring marks, so you can use it to add ingredients directly to the pan without dirtying another spoon. It also has a bent handle, so it sits up off the counter, making one less spot I have to clean. So, yeah, I agree it's the world's best cooking spoon, or at least the best one I've tried!
I've got this Stila liquid eyeliner in about four different colors, and I love it. It's so much easier to apply than many other liquid liners, and I find it doesn't smear. They've got several beautiful variations of gray, brown, and black, plus midnight blue, paradise pink, and white.
Learn A New Hobby With This Crochet SetRated 4.8 on nearly 5,000 reviews, this crochet hook set is beloved. The soft rubber handles are designed to reduce fatigue and prevent cramping. The kit comes with everything you need to make your first project (except the yarn). You get nine hooks in all the key sizes, a stitch marker, knitting markers and sewing needles -- plus a cute carrying case. Pull up an easy starter pattern online (there are tons of free ones) and make yourself a washcloth or scarf. Before you know it, you'll be hooked (pun intended). If my main pick is out, try this excellent alternative.
This Pretty Little Car Trash CanThese cute little geometric trash capsules will fit in your car cup holder and look like a fancy travel mug. I love this idea! My car is always littered with mint wrappers and other little debris that would easily fit into one of these small receptacles. The best part is that they don't look like trash cans. They're stylish and easily pass for a high-end car accessory, all while secretly protecting passengers from the sight of your wadded tissue and melted lip balm.
I learned about EltaMD Tinted Mineral Sunscreen at my dermatologist's office. It's an extremely gentle mineral SPF formulation, which makes it suitable for use on extra-sensitive skin. It's also a good choice if you've recently done a facial, peel, or other treatment that can leave skin tender. As a bonus, it's lightly tinted to provide additional coverage and take the place of the foundation.
I love the idea of decorating for dinner parties or Sunday brunches, but I get overwhelmed when I contemplate fresh flowers, candles, and all the other Pinterest-panic-inducing choices. Instead, I've learned it's a lot easier to find one big accessory that does all the decorating work at once. That's the idea behind this Eucalyptus Garland with Champagne Roses. Measuring 78 inches long, it's made from fabric and looks gorgeous draped down the center of a table. One Amazon reviewer also displays hers on the fireplace mantle with string lights woven in. Pretty!
This Colorful Tea KettleAt $23 and rating 4.5 stars, this electric kettle is a great gift for the stylish host or hostess. Loved not just for the way it looks (though come on, it looks fabulous), this kettle is highly durable and works like a charm. It boils a full 1.5-liter pot of water in seven minutes or less. It has an auto shut-off feature and comes with a two-year warranty. Choose from lime green, purple, fuchsia, orange, red, maroon, white, or black.
This Clump-Free Mascara That Truly Stays Clump-Free
Buying expensive mascara is a true waste of money. Regardless of whether you finished the tube, you should throw it away every three months or do to avoid clumping or infected eyelids from bacteria. Yes, your mascara can expire. So, buying a $20+ mascara makes very little financial sense. Luckily, I found a mascara that I truly love that is less than $10, and this is it. No matter how much I layer it on, it stays true to its promise of being clump-free.
Stop searching for the right lid with this organizer. It also just looks so neat and tidy compared to a pile of random plastic.
C'mon now, just look at that picture. It's black, silky, strappy, and lacy — the final four of sex appeal. This is the perfect starter for an evening of going out with a chic blazer or even a denim shirt. Reviewers love the tank's stretchiness and deep V, which perfectly accentuates all of your assets. Aiming to be the showstopper? This is THE one.
This Squishy Unicorn That Will Ease Your Stress
If tiny squishies are not enough, reach for this fun unicorn toy. It is filled with satisfying gel-like balls and has lots of different textures. Keep it by your desk for those times when the news is just too anxiety-inducing or that work Zoom meeting is getting you down. You'd be surprised how much a stress ball (or stress unicorn) can help soothe your nerves and boost your mood.
This Nightlight Is Absolutely DreamyI was actually surprised to find this cool nightlight on sale for so much off since it's a really popular item that rarely gets discounted! It projects a rotating, multicolor moon and star pattern on the ceiling that's great for getting babies and kids to sleep peacefully. It's the perfect gift for the little on your list who's afraid of the dark!
It all started with a TikTok video. One minute I was blowdrying my hair straight; the next, I was deep-diving into Curly Girl territory, complete with co-washing and plopping. I also discovered that my old hairdryer was way too harsh on my waves, so I added this Bed Head Diffuser Hair Dryer to my curly arsenal. Thanks to the large drying surface and removable diffuser attachment, I can control the drying process, resulting in less frizz and a lot more natural shine.
For a small item with a big impact, you can't do much better than the charming Haitral Swing Arm Desk Lamp. This creatively designed lamp consists of a wood base and linen shade and is suitable for up to a 40W bulb (not included). The best feature is the posable sections that can be moved into a variety of positions, so your lamp can sit, stand, hang his head, or otherwise convey whatever emotion seems fitting.
This Power Strip That Has a 4.8-Star RatingLet's face it: We all need lots of power outlets these days, and we need them to be located conveniently. This surge protector power strip covers all the bases, with six widely-spaced outlets for bulky plugs and six vertical outlets for normal plugs. It also has three smart USB ports so you can charge-up your phones and tablets. And the power cord is six feet long, so it can easily reach wherever you need it to go. This power strip lists for $49.99, but you can get it on Prime Day for $22.99.
I love simple purses that are large enough to carry my laptop and other items while traveling between coffee shops. This genuine leather bag is ridiculously affordable considering its real leather, and it will last you forever. I've carried my Macbook in it and then some, and it's held up extraordinarily well.
