    2. Take your kitchen from bleh to BAM with kitschy dishes and glasses from Fishs Eddy. Their "Good Morning Asshole" mug never fails to put an early AM smile on my face.*, AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    6. Breakfast at Tiffany & Co. sounds fantastic in theory, but do you know what sounds better than breakfast? Jewelry. Just call me Audrey Hepburn because the idea of cradling a robin egg blue box in my hands is overwhelming.

    Tiffany & Co. is known for their (irritatingly gorgeous) luxury jewelry. I don't use the phrase "holy cow" very often, but when I do? It's in this context: HOLY COW, these Tiffany engagement rings are stunning!

    Not a jewelry fiend? They also design sunglasses and make lovely perfumes.

    Store address: 727 5th Ave, New York, NY 10022 (flagship location)

    Shop their products at: Tiffany & Co., Nordstrom, Net-a-Porter

    7. Glossier is known for their love of dewy skin and easy-to-use products. Now please take my not-so-humble advice and try out their Boy Brow and Milky Jelly Cleanser. They're cult-favorites for a reason.,

    Boy Brow is one of those things that, if I were to spend the rest of my existence living on a deserted island, I would absolutely take with me. Water? Eh. I'd rather have perfectly filled-in and natural-looking brows.

    Store address: 123 Lafayette St., Penthouse, New York, NY 10013

    Shop their products at: Glossier

    8. American Eagle, home of fantastic jeans and ridiculously cozy sweaters, has a store/studio in NYC. The "WOW!" aspect of said studio? An Instagram-friendly laundromat that's open to the public. / Via @Natty Wu

    12. The Vintage Twin sources — huge shocker, I know — vintage pieces that you'll want to treasure forever. And ever. And ever. And maybe a few decades after that last ever, as well. / Via @maddiedecker7

    So, why is everything at The Vintage Twin so great? All items are professionally laundered (thank heavens, AM I RIGHT?) and reworked into something that's slightly more on-trend. Their example: "Turning grandma's long ball gown into a short sexy dress."

    13. Cruelty-free, food-based makeup products are the bread and butter of Bite Beauty. BUT DID YOU KNOW that they also have a make-your-own lipstick lab? Hello, bliss.

    BuzzFeed, / Via @bitebeauty

    Bite Beauty Lab allows you to mix and match different pigments in order to get you your perfect lipstick shade. You even get to choose your own flavor! I would personally be town between cherry and wild berry, but alas! You can just mix the two flavors together.

    17. Rent the Runway understands that millennials can't afford to buy (HA), which is why they offer rentals on designer pieces that you'd probably only wear once anyway.

    Rent the Runway

    Perfect Rent the Runway scenario: You have yet another wedding, you don't feel like shelling out another $100+ for a pretty dress that you can only wear once because of inevitable Instagram pics, but you still want to wear something new. Just rent that Keepsake dress for $45 (as opposed to buying it for the retail price of $220).

    19. DSTLD is a direct-to-consumer brand that fulfills the dream of every minimalist in the whole darn Milky Way. They offer fantastic basics (leather, denim, suede) in neutral colors. / Via @dstld,

    Direct-to-consumer means that you're getting super high quality items for a fraction of the price that most companies would charge. Example? DSTLD charges $85 for their high-waisted skinny jeans, but traditional retail would put those same jeans at $180.

    This St. Ives pop-up allows you to create your own face scrub, face moisturizer, and body lotion! For the face scrub, for example, you can choose between three exfoliation levels, three different exfoliants, and eight ingredients.

    FOR EXAMPLE! My face scrub would be a moderate exfoliation, a volcanic sand exfoliant, and watermelon agave. And if you can't visit the NYC store, just mix your own products online!
