    1. A macrame plant hanging shelf you'll want to have ~hanging~ around your home because it will help you add a nice touch of greenery to your space.

    2. A layered necklace set to make people think you're really good at picking out simple necklaces that look good together even though you just have to throw these on and head out the door.

    3. A bullet glass everyone will want a ~shot~ at drinking out of because it is THAT cool.

    4. A pair of acrylic resin earrings to give you #BigEarringEnergy without giving you #EmptyWalletEnergy (which is the dream TBH).

    5. A femme wall hanging so you not only have a place to store some of your jewelry. but also just a nice piece of decor on your wall.

    6. A set of pearl hairpins to up your hair accessory game. These are so much better than the hair clips you had to wear in grade school when you decided to finally grow out your bangs and needed to find some way to keep those little suckers out of your face.

    7. A bedside carafe with a lid that magically turns into a glass – put it in your guest room so your friends think you're way fancier than you actually are.

    8. Some clip-in hair extensions to give you Rapunzel-like hair without waiting an eternity for it to grow that long itself.

    9. A three-piece vase set so you have a place to display those flowers you impulsively bought at Trader Joe's because they were just so beautiful and cheap.

    10. A leopard wrap skirt for when you want to get a little ~wild~, and by "~wild~," I mean switch up your regular jeans and a sweater look this fall.

    11. A set of decorative hooks you'll be ~hooked~ on so fast, you might order more immediately and turn your home into a really cool modern art exhibit.

    12. A sloth planter for when you're had a rough day and are just ~hanging in there~...because as soon as you see this little guy, he'll make you feel slow much better.

    13. A snakeskin belt purse you can put the essentials in (Phone. Keys. Wallet.) while you're on vacation when you really don't need to be lugging around a big bag full of crumpled up receipts.

    14. A metallic knit dress you'll rock at every holiday party you'll be invited to this year and then probably New Year's Eve, too (because you'll look ah-mazing in it).

    15. A catchall tray so cute and simple you might not even want to put anything on it and just use it as decor. It's really up to you!

    16. A beaded sweater that'll be a ~pearly~ good addition to your fall and winter wardrobe, trust me.

    17. A mat to welcome people into your home and also give them a place to wipe any mud or dirt off their feet (or paws) so they don't track it in there.

    18. A key hook you can mount right by your door and then *actually* put your keys on it right when you get home so you don't spend 10 minutes in the morning running around your home frantically searching for them.

    19. Some string lights to turn your room into a warm and cozy place you might never want to leave ever again. Whoops!

    20. An absolutely gorgeous blouse people might assume you bought from a fancy-smancy boutique.

    21. A jewelry stand you'll want to have on ~hand~ as a place to store your rings and bracelets.

    22. A ruffle sweater because it's okay to admit that you like cheap ~frills~.

    23. A rolling pin so beautiful, you might just display it in your kitchen and then leave it there forever because it's so nice to look at.

    24. A hat that'll make you feel approximately 124958% cooler the second you put it on. Don't ask me to justify that number, I just know.

    25. A set of six coasters designed to absorb any liquid that drips from cold drinks so it doesn't end up on your nice furniture.

    26. An embroidered skirt you'll be ~etching~ to wear at least once a week like the true outfit repeater you are. Lizzie McGuire would be proud!

    27. A night light – you might find yourself proclaiming, "~Ramen~ in love with you!!" every single time you see it.

    28. And a pair of rose quartz ear jackets that can be worn three different ways: as a stud with the dangle in front and the stud in the back *or* the other way around. Talk about versatility.
