    1. A smocked mini dress for whenever you're running late, which is pretty much always. Just slip this on, pair it with any shoe, throw your hair into a chic messy bun (emphasis on the messy), and that's it! You're ready. No one will notice that you were *ahem* 45 minutes late.,

    Promising review: "This is a very comfortable off-the-shoulder dress. I took it to Mexico with me and walked along the beach, so it didn't feel too constricting or anything. I have a bigger bottom half so it was comfortable and didn't feel too short when standing." —Raina Coleman

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes 0-14 and in five colors).

    2. A SKINFOOD finishing powder formulated with peach extract and calamin powder. Swipe this onto the most oily patches of your face (*stares at t-zone*), and rest assured that you will remain shine-free all day long.


    This powder is super lightweight and won't irritate even the most sensitive, acne-prone skin.

    Promising review: "Best powder I've ever tried! Mattifies very well. I have sensitive, acne-prone, combination/oily skin, but this powder does not break me out or irritate my skin. Plus, it smells so good — like real peaches! The tub also contains a lot of product, so this will last me a long time and is really affordable." —Katherine K.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    3. A Two Minute Mornings journal with a dedicated page for each morning that asks what you will let go of, what you are grateful for, and what you will focus one. Consider this simple tradition to be your dedicated ~me time~, a practice that helps you start each day on the right foot.


    Promising review: "Do you have two minutes? Do you struggle with priorities? Well, here's a journal to help you win your day. After struggling to manage his commitments, Neil Pasricha discovered a simple gratitude practice that changed his life. It takes—wait for it—just two minutes every morning. The practice is simple yet powerful, and by using a journal to log your entries, you'll be able to look back over the year at all you've accomplished." —Chris Guillebeau

    Get it from Amazon for $12.66.

    4. A ~busty bralette~ specifically designed for D-DDD cup sizes. This harmonious blend of comfort and support is made of pixie dust and dream particles, because that's how great it is. / Via @wearlively

    Get it from Lively for $35 (available in band sizes 32-40, cup sizes D-DDD, and in 10 colors).

    Read my full review of the Lively busty bralette.

    5. A waterproof vinyl sticker for anyone who spent their Fourth of July indoors, waffle in hand, ignoring fireworks and human contact, just to binge the entire third season. Demogorgon > barbecues.


    Psst, this sticker is available in 11 other Stranger Things-themed designs.

    Get it from Rose Soma on Etsy for $3.60+ (available in 11 designs).

    6. An Invisibobble you’ll want to start carrying around on your wrist ASAP. This genius accessory will keep your mane out of your face without causing any dents in the process. You’ll be able to take your hair out of your pony and BAM! It won’t look as if you had it in an updo for several hours.

    Sarah Han / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I am a hairdresser and I feel like this should be explained better. This is not made to hold your ponytail while you go for a jog. It is strong enough that you could use it to secure a braid. The beauty of this product is that the coils prevent your hair from getting a band mark. Want your hair to have lots of volume in the morning with no bed head? Gather your hair onto the top of your head and loosely secure it. In the morning, take out the Invisibobble and voila!" —Annadj

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $7.88 (available in four colors).

    Read our full review of the Invisibobble (#1).

    7. A hand-painted jacket that takes an ordinary piece of denim and turns it into a legitimate piece of pet-inspired art. Walking around wearing a shrine to my favorite four-legged being on earth? Pinch me. I must be dreaming.


    While you have the option to purchase a jacket to be painted on, you also have the option of sending in your own jacket to be customized. Just add a note to the seller indicating which option you prefer!

    Get it from GiFlynnDesign on Etsy for $185.78+.

    8. An Ello glass bottle you can hypothetically fill with other liquids — tea, juice, etc. — without having to worry about the taste lingering even after you've washed it several times. All you'll taste is pure water.


    This has a leak-proof lid, is designed with a carrying loop, and can be placed in the dishwasher.

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS BOTTLE!!! No metallic or plastic taste, and it's great for water, tea, juice, or any other beverage. Since it can be washed in the dishwasher and isn't porous, it doesn't hold on to tastes like plastic or metal containers might. It's fairly durable, too (I've dropped it onto the floor and even concrete a few times by accident, and it's still perfectly fine). The wide mouth of the bottle makes it easy to add ice, tea bags, or fruit slices...but not so wide that you'll spill on yourself when you drink from it! I love this and you really can't beat it for the price." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 14 colors).

    9. A cruelty-free Milani baked blush for a buildable, natural pop of pink that instantly gives even the most tired skin a healthy flush. Who slept eight hours last night? Not you! But hey, at least it'll look like you got your beauty sleep.

    Promising review: "Seriously, this blush is the BEST. These blushes apply beautifully, the color lasts all day, it looks very natural, and has a built-in highlighter. It looks great in photos and you get color and a touch of glow in one sweep!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Milani or Amazon for $6.97 (available in nine colors).

    10. A Freeman clay mask with mint and lemon extracts that work to minimize the appearance of pores, vacuum up excess grease, and keep breakouts at bay. This is especially great for summer because the cooling mint will feel like heaven on especially scorching hot days. / Via @freemanbeauty

    Promising review: "This mint and lemon clay mask is my favorite Freeman mask so far! I have a red complexion with big pores and naturally oily, sensitive skin. However, this mask is awesome! It has a slight minty, tingly sensation on your face that feels so refreshing and, as soon as I wash this off, my face is not red!! My complexion looks more toned, my pores are less noticeable, and my face isn't as oily for about 24 hours." —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    11. Strappy Blowfish sandals that are sure to become your partner in summertime crime. Batman has Robin, Serena has Blair, and you’ll have these shoes.

    Promising review: "I don't usually write reviews, but these sandals are beautiful! I usually wear a size 7, ordered up by half a size, and they fit perfectly. They're also really comfortable and I've received several compliments on them." —DS959

    Get them from Amazon for $24.90+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 45 colors).

    12. A bottle of gluten-free Savannah Bee Company Tupelo Honey you'll want to keep stocked in your kitchen at all times. Add this to everything from teas and pastries to your morning yogurt for an extra dose of sweetness. Your taste buds will thank you.


    Promising review: "I had some of this for the first time when I was in South Carolina last summer. Now, I've eaten a lot of honey in my day, but this one has such a unique flavor. I'm addicted to it now! I put it on my nonfat plain Greek yogurt and yogurt has honestly never tasted so good. Granted it's a bit pricey for honey, but it's so worth it. I actually went to their store in Savannah Georgia and picked up some more. I've even given this honey as gifts to friends and they all love it. I won't be eating any other honey from now." —cjg

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49 (available in three sizes).

    13. A pack of trendy hair clips that have the ability to take a boring white tee and turn it into something significantly more stylish. Plus, they keep your hair out of your face? I'm sure you already know that, but I felt it was worth specifying.,

    Promising review: "Love this pack of clips! Wanted to try out the trend without spending too much, and these are a great value for the price. One of the pearl clips arrived a little detached from its backing, but nothing noticeable once it’s in your hair (I just added a dot of super glue to it). Otherwise, I’ve been getting tons of compliments on them!" —Kate

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $8.99.

    14. A knot-front suit complete with removable straps. Now don't be discouraged, but this is guaranteed to have you humming 🎶 itsy bitsy teenie weenie 🎶 even though you are wearing neither a bikini or the color yellow. / Via @sweetandsavagelife

    Promising review: "I ordered this swimsuit for a beach trip and wasn't disappointed. It fits great, the color is beautiful, and it comes with removable straps so that you can wear it two different ways." —Amber

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in nine colors)

    15. An Aquapaw Slow Treater to take the hassle out of pet bathing and grooming: just use the suction cup on the back to adhere it to any surface, add in some peanut butter between the silicone nubs, and boom! Your dog is now fully distracted and shampooing will no longer be a hassle.


    This is both dishwasher- and freezer-safe, plus is made from FDA-grade silicone.

    Promising review: "I just finished cutting toenails on my three dogs with their total cooperation, thanks to this product. I just put squirt cheese in between the nubs of the slow treater, laid it on the grooming table, and the dogs were happily licking away while I worked on their feet. No pulling away, no second person to hold the dog, just me, some cheese, and the slow treater. I’m a fan!" —D. Dipietro

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    16. Vitamin e-infused makeup wipes available in individually-sized packets, meaning you can stash one in your purse to cleanse your face of dirt, oil, and makeup on the go. Cleaning your face on a NYC subway? Consider it possible.


    Promising review: "I bought these to put in little hangover bags for a bachelorette trip and at first, I was annoyed that I had to buy a box of 50...but now I'm so glad I did. They are PERFECT for traveling. I've been bringing them with me on trips all over and can fit as many as I need for a week-long trip. I also use them when I come home late and all I want to do is go to bed, but don't want to smear my pillow cases with makeup. They also don't make my face feel too dry afterwards, although I still put a little face moisturizer on to help." —Pam Dupuis

    Get a pack of 50 from Amazon for $12.30.

    17. A marble ceramic mug that will turn morning coffee into an even better experience, by way of a fantastic pun. Life truly is brew-tiful when one has a cup of caffeine in their hands, isn't it?


    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    18. A Celeb Luxury color depositing shampoo to turn your ~Pinterest pastel~ dreams into a reality (no expensive or time-consuming trips to the salon required). *uses shampoo once* *posts 'gram pic with the hashtag #hairgoals*,

    This shampoo works best on bleached or naturally blond hair, and can be used just like a regular shampoo — lather on a generous amount, give your mane a good scrubbing, rinse thoroughly, and that's it! The color will have a more faded effect after the first use, but will be significantly more vibrant after the second wash.

    Psst, this formula is also vegan, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, and formaldehyde-free!

    Promising review: "This shampoo is a serious game changer. I have been bleaching and dying my hair pink on and off for years, and it has always faded disappointingly fast. I ended up getting into a routine where I would dye my hair magenta just so it would fade to the pastel pink I wanted — but not anymore! This shampoo allows me to dye my hair a pastel pink and then reapply the color with every shampoo. It comes out bright and beautiful. I used to head to the salon every six to eight weeks, but I can now stretch it out to twelve. Bonus: the shampoo lathers, smells great, and is vegan!" —Mary Colleen

    Get it from Amazon for $35 (available in 12 colors).

    19. A Soap & Glory cooling body scrub with coconut shell and pink jojoba exfoliator balls for refreshed, glowing skin that's so soft that it would intimidate even the smoothest of baby bottoms. / Via @soapandglory

    Get it from Ulta for $15.

    20. A cold shoulder maxi dress so trendy, it's practically a requirement to have a photo shoot whilst wearing it. Congratulations on your newest #ootd, now prepare for at least 500K new followers.

    Promising review: "Got this dress to wear in Hawaii! It was beautiful and I felt very comfortable in it, plus it fit great with or without a bra (I decided to go without). Got a lot of compliments on it, the price was great, and I’ll definitely wear it again." —Carebear

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 0X-4X and in 22 colors/styles).

    21. Bottle Bright cleaning tablets to quickly remove all that funky, gross, probably-starting-to-smell build-up in the above bottle. These are biodegradable, chlorine-free, and — best of all — require absolutely NO effort or scrubbing.

    Promising review: "I seriously can't believe how well these little tablets work. I had the most disgusting HydroFlask coffee mug and I tried everything, but there was still a seemingly impenetrable layer of black sludge inside. It grossed me out so much that I bought ANOTHER HydroFlask to replace it. Now eventually they both got black inside, so I tried these little magic tablets. I let a tablet sit in each of my mugs for an hour or two, and the black sludge rinsed out COMPLETELY without any scrubbing necessary. They look brand new and there was no weird smell or taste afterward, either. Absolute magic!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 12 tablets from Amazon for $8.

    22. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt, a nonfiction read set in the beautiful city of Savannah. The story begins with a murder (or was it — DUN DUN — self-defense) in one of the grandest mansions in the city, but the humor and cast of interesting characters are what make this such a compelling story.


    Promising review: "Wonderful writing, interesting characters, and I loved the supernatural side of this story. The author does an amazing job weaving in the history of Savannah without making this sound like a regular history book. I really appreciated the diversity of the subjects, and the narrator's humor. A great read. Now, all I need is a trip to Savannah." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.08.

    23. A Remington wand capable of doing the Impossible (yes, Impossible with a capital "I"). This miracle tool allows even the straightest of manes to hold the most beautiful beach waves: Just wrap your hair around the barrel, wait a few seconds, and you're done! Minimal effort required. Several tears shed.,

    This wand heats up within 30 seconds and has a 60 second automatic shut-off feature, meaning you'll never have any midday did-I-turn-off-my-curler panics ever again. The barrel also comes in 1" and 1.5" sizes, heats up to 410°F (and can be adjusted), and has a ceramic coating for even heat distribution.

    SIDE NOTE: I have been using the same Remington wand for about six (maybe seven) years and it is truly a gift from above. For reference, I have super straight, thin hair that usually can't ever hold a curl, but this helps me achieve a full head of beach waves in under 15 minutes.

    Promising review: "I have had this for five years and it still works amazingly. I use it so much that people don't know my hair is naturally straight, and I get compliments on it all the time. Honestly, I cannot believe how well this works and how long it's lasted considering how cheap it is. I bought this on a whim (cause it's only $20!) and it is one my greatest purchases of all time." —madison

    Get it from Amazon for $21.97+ (available in two barrel sizes).

    24. A cruelty-free Elizabeth Mott bronzer that will a) give your face some color even if you've been stuck in your cubicle and haven't seen the sun in several days, and b) give SOME CONTOUR. What's that? Chiseled cheekbones worthy of a modeling contract? / Via @elizabethmott

    Promising review: "This is hands down the best bronzer I've ever used. I got a sample through Ipsy and was so impressed with how blendable and buildable it is. It's totally matte too, which is so nice. Probably will never use anything else and it lasts forever. Worth every penny!" —Jo

    Get it from Amazon for $15 (available in two shades).

    25. A weighted OXO sinkware caddy perfect for storing all of your most mundane items upright: I'm talking about dish sponges, dish brushes, tooth brushes, and toothpaste.


    This caddy is designed with a removable bottom that catches excess water, so just empty it out every so often to prevent any icky smells from forming.

    Promising review: "This stand is perfect for dish wands! I hate coming to the sink to see all the soap has drained out of the dish wand sponges and I needed something to hold them upright. This caddy is the solution. It holds my two (possibly four) dish wands as well as two sponges, has a drip tray at the bottom with a spout you can just tip for the water to pour out easily." —kaotik

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in two colors).

    26. A mini wrap dress you should truly pack in your carry-on. If your luggage gets lost (which has never happened to me hahahaha), have peace of mind knowing that you can wear this *one* item every single day of your vacation.

    Nasty Gal

    Get it from Nasty Gal for $9 (originally $40, available in sizes 0-10 and in two colors).

    27. A gentle La Roche-Posay cream cleanser that easily picks up makeup and impurities...all while maintaining your natural pH balance/not stripping your complexion of moisture. People with dry-to-normal skin, break out the party hats because it's time to REJOICE. / Via @larocheposayusa,

    This daily cleanser contains prebiotic thermal water, ceramide-3, niacinamide, and glycerin.

    Promising review: "This is very gentle on my sensitive skin. My face feels very clean after I use it without being overly tight or dry. This one is working out really well so far after several months of daily use." —P.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    28. A Philips alarm clock that mimics natural light and gradually brightens over 30 minutes, meaning you'll feel as if you're waking up with the sunrise and your own internal clock as opposed to the jarring noise of a typical alarm.


    This clock has 20 brightness settings, three ~calming~ wake-up sounds, an FM radio, and can be used as a bedside reading lamp. It's even got a two-year warranty through Philips!

    Promising review: "I can safely say I now wake up prior to any noise of any alarm, even the sunrise alarm. The ambient light slowly wakes me up even on nights where I get little to no sleep. It has literally changed the way I wake up and on days I would feel utterly disgusting, I now feel slightly better. This is not a product that will replace your cup of coffee. This has simply been something that wakes me up more gently than anything I have used before. I read reviews about the clunkiness of the controls but honestly, its very easy to use. Plug it in, set the alarm and go to sleep. I have my sunrise alarm next to me and have learned where the buttons are and have not had any issues. I am a light sleeper so this works well for me. Give it a shot and see the light!" —Spencer Cheung

    Get it from Amazon for $93.99.

    29. A paraben- and sulfate-free OUIA spray infused with rice protein to give volume and texture to any 'do without weighing it down in the process. Just spray a bit into damp hair for immediate just-left-the-beach waves. / Via @theouai, Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this product! Smells great and adds texture to hair, plus doesn’t make my hair look/feel greasy or weighed down." —1Linds

    Get it from Nordstrom for $12 (available in two sizes).

    30. A hardshell case so that your sunglasses have an actual shot at survival. I get it. They're inexpensive. But flinging them into your purse will just lead to scratches, scuffs, and heartache so please...just put them in this damn case.

    And same goes for your eyeglasses!!!

    Promising review: "This is a good hard case that is great for traveling because it has a slim design and will really protect your glasses. I have oversized glasses and was worried that they would be too big for this case, but they fit!" —Jglamorous6

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in 11 colors).

    31. Assorted greeting cards because you're already barely going to make it to the party on time. With this boxed set, you'll have a card (for any darn occasion) on hand at all times. No more last-minute runs to the drugstore while already being 45 minutes behind schedule. / Via @studiooh, / Via @studiooh

    This set includes 10 birthday cards, three celebration cards, three thank you cards, two 'just because' cards, one sympathy card, and one get well soon card (as well as 20 matching envelopes).

    Get them from Amazon for $22.68+ (available in four boxes).

    32. A handmade doormat you can customize with your family name. Folks, if you're looking for unique gift ideas for both parents and grandparents alike... then this is it. The perfect gift.


    Get it from DoorMatters on Etsy for $25.79.

    33. A belt buckle fedora hat because "I didn't feel like washing my hair" days are inevitable and the heart can't live on dry shampoo alone. Grease, meet your new best friend.,

    Promising review: "This is seriously a great find! I've been looking for a hat for a long time for an upcoming trip, and all the hats I've tried on were either too floppy, too small for my face, or just plain uncomfortable. The brim on this hat is a perfect size to keep the sun off your face and stays perfectly in place so it won't obstruct your vision! You can adjust the sizing using a ribbon hidden in the lining, making the fit perfect even for a windy day. Absolutely love this hat!" —Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $16.45 (available in 14 colors).

    34. A limited-edition Estée Lauder palette packed with eight gorgeous shades in sparkle, pearl, and matte finishes. Perfect for both face and eyelids, these buildable shades will give you that ultimate natural glow.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $48.

    35. Hand-poured candles perfect for people who are, yes, homesick. This will allow your new abode to smell exactly like your home state! For example, New York smells like autumn (imagine notes of pumpkin and apple orchards) while Tennessee is inspired by notes of bergamot, tea, single-malt whiskey, and magnolia.

    These have a burn time of up to 80 hours, and each state has it's own unique scent. For example, New Hampshire smells like apple cider with hints of cinnamon, clove, and vanilla.

    Get one from Amazon for $29.95 (available in all 50 states).
