    1. An eyeshadow palette inspired by the Disney Princesses, because you absolutely deserve to feel as glamorous as any of those ladies on their perhaps-a-bit-rushed-but-who-cares wedding days.

    the makeup palette with 15 colors and an illustration of various disney princesses in masquerade attire

    As a diehard Disney fan, I obviously had to buy this palette. The illustrations on the packaging are absolutely fabulous and so are the colors! I personally really love layering the shimmery shades over solid ones for a little something extra. My favorite of all the colors is "Floating Lanterns" a la Rapunzel — the missing princess.

    Promising review: "I’m so glad that I failed at self discipline and got this palette. All the colors are so pretty, smooth and LOOK AT THAT BEAUTIFUL PACKAGING! I totally recommend. 10/10" —Christina

    Get it from ColourPop for $19.20.

    Promising review: "The scrunchies are very soft, very strong and stretchy, and surprisingly smell pretty good. They can make an outfit more interesting even by just wearing them on your wrist. 11/10 would recommend." —Torence H.

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $7.99.

    4. Or pearl velvet headbands for a chic addition to your typically messy hair. Royal Watchers would certainly approve.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    One of my coworkers purchased this four-pack and was kind enough to share with the rest of us! I love how easy this headband makes it to make a fashion statement without taking up too much time in the morning — and I was able to wear it all day without getting a headache!

    Promising review: "I live in headbands as a stay-at-home mom with two small kiddos. They make your messy bun actually look like you're decent-looking and like you got yourself together 😂 definitely a great pack for cheap. They are made very well, great quality!" —Misty Flota

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $8.99.

    5. An exfoliating body scrub and body wash to leave your skin silky, smooth, and refreshed like you'd imagine a queen's would feel.

    lovebeautyandplanet / Via, Amazon

    I'm a sucker for anything made by Love, Beauty and Planet, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to try out this body scrub in my shower. This product is infused with organic coconut oil and Bulgarian roses. It smells AMAZING and leaves my body feeling like velvet — definitely a luxurious add-on for any shower experience. Then I'll top off the whole experience by covering myself in the equally-lovely lotion. Can't beat it!

    Promising review: "Loved this scrub and wash combo! I used both during baths and it felt super luxurious. The scrub is gritty but not TOO tough on your skin, and the wash has a silky smooth consistency. The scent is beautiful and rosy, pretty strong (which I like, what’s the point of soap if it isn’t strong?) Would def purchase again!" —carmavilla

    Get them from Amazon for $14.49.

    6. Glossier's Cloud Paint, which will add a touch of color to your cheeks with a quick swipe of lotion-like formula. Always wanted to look like you had someone other than yourself prep your look for the day? This will do the trick.

    Jessica Seib / BuzzFeed, Glossier

    My colleague Jessica Seib loves Cloud Paint (as does many other BuzzFeed employees, myself included). She said:

    "I'll be the first to admit that Cloud Paint in 'Beam' is a heavenly STAPLE. If you can't tell from the photos, it's both lightweight and moisturizing. The shade is super subtle, but equally as flattering on both a bare and full face of makeup. My daily *lewk* is forever changed — you won't regret buying!"

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in eight shades).

    7. A simple opal choker that'll help provide sustainable water in Africa (yes, really!) and make you feel as charitable as an actual royal.


    This necklace is so much more than it appears! It's sold by Benevolence Los Angeles, which promises to contribute $5 of each purchase to a sustainable water system in Africa through their charity partner H4O. This is a wonderful gift for someone (like YOURSELF) who loves dainty jewelry and giving back.

    Promising review: "I wore it for like 3 months straight and did not want to take it off!!! I think it looks so great. It brings attention to your pearly whites and to the sclera part of your eyes. It doesn't tangle easily and the Little Rock is nice and dainty. I really love what the company stands for so when I wear this choker I feel extra special. I would definitely recommend this to a friend or sister!" —Lion Rose Music

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95 (available in two styles).

    8. A reusable pop-on manicure set featuring a gel-like shine so you can have a fresh set of nails without spending hours at an overpriced salon.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Impress Nails

    My mother-in-law and I both recently put this new OPI x Impress Nail collaboration to the test. We're both pretty hard on our nails and were rather, dare I say, impressed with how well they managed to stay on! I felt fabulous with them on — as if I had come straight from the salon.

    Promising review: "I love these press-ons! I trust them all the time; I even wore them on my wedding day! People always ask if it’s my real nail or ask how i polish them so perfectly. Huge fan!! Been using since 2013!" —Elena Z.

    Get them from Impress Manicure for $9.99 each (available in 10 colors).

    9. Luster dust you can add to your confectionary creations to them leave shimmering, shining, and fit for royalty.,

    Promising review: "Made a three-layer cake with gold and red frosting for a close friend and their family for Valentine’s Day. The gold frosting was a true gold color that was flat. I used a clean, dry paint brush to add the gold dust to the cake for extra shine, and boy, did it deliver! It adds a light gold shine to it. It was easy to use, although, be careful as it can get everywhere. It was pleasantly easy to clean/wipe off the counters. Happy to have purchased this." —Joanna

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in seven colors).

    10. A set of macaron bath bombs that'll make you feel fancy, French, and fabulous. And why would you want to ever feel any other way???

    a box of bath bomb macarons
    TheHouseonWhiteOak / Etsy

    There are few desserts as delicate and beautiful as a macaron. Now you can bring the beauty of this tasty treat into your pal's bath tub (if they weren't already snacking on them mid-soak like the queen they are). This woman-owned small business is run out of Texas and has *so* many incredible bath products. I might just have to buy myself this incredibly designed pumpkin spice latte bath bomb to keep out on display.

    Get them from TheHouseonWhiteOak on Etsy for $12.76.

    11. Stackable eternity bands to make you want to jump around and perform the "Single Ladies" dance like Queen Bey.

    Add some glitz and glam to your digits by purchasing these stackable rings in every style!

    Promising review: "I purchased two of these rings to surround my engagement ring. I wanted to try these to see how they would look with my diamond ring before looking for, 'the real thing.' These are really quite nice and I don't feel the need to replace them. I've worn them every day since I got them and haven't removed them to do the dishes, etc., and they are holding up perfectly. " —Dawn

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in four styles).

    12. A print of Princess Diana in all her revenge dress glory to amp up your mood during your mid-day slump — real fans of the Royal Family will know precisely what I'm referring to.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in four styles).

    14. Strappy faux leather block heels you'll love so much they'll make you hold your head up high and strut your stuff like you're actual royalty when you're wearing them.

    Get them from Forever 21 for $14.99 (available in sizes 5.5–10 and two colors).

    15. A milk frother to pack a powerful, spinning punch despite looking rather delicate. It'll help transform your drink into one you'd expect to be served at a luxurious brunch., Amazon

    I invested in one of these and I'm so glad I did — I use it to make lattes at home and have saved a lot of dollars without having to run out to Starbucks every morning (just...once a week or so instead hehe).

    Promising review: "OMG, this milk frother makes my homemade latte taste like it was made by a barista. It was perfect. So perfect that I bought a second one for my brother who loves coffee to use. I've already recommended it to some coworkers. It has changed my coffee-drinking life. This comes highly recommended." —Michelle Pirestani

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 26 colors).

    16. A glittering dress to add some glamour to anywhere you're headed. Say "see ya'!" to your boring black dress and "hello!" to glitz.,

    There's nothing like a little glitter to make you feel like a queen, I'll tell ya'. This dress is FULL of it and doesn't have any zippers to fidget with.

    Promising review: "I couldn't find anything for my 10-year Vegas anniversary that was show-stopping, head-turning, accident-causing gorgeous. Well let me tell you, this did it. The sequins didn't aggravate my underarm. The fit was amazing. I was the sexiest thing on the strip. Was hit on by guys and girls while with my hubby. Don't hesitate, buy the dress!" —Daisy Hodge

    Get it from Amazon for $15.65+ (available in sizes XS–L and 25 styles).

    17. A variety pack of tea, ideal for sipping out of a delicate teacup with your pinky up like any respected royal.

    an assortment of tea bags from harney and sons

    I drink so much tea you'd think I was of British descent, so I can tell you after trying many brands that Harney & Sons makes a quality cup. This set comes with 14 different flavors in addition to honey crystal packs, so anyone who joins you will be able to find something that appeals to their tastebuds. Try the organic peppermint — you won't be disappointed.

    Promising review: "Wonderful gift to myself 😉. It was nice to try a lot of the Harney and Sons teas without spending too much money on a whole tin of each. The box itself is awesome, and fits really well with regular tea boxes on a shelf. I also liked the nectar sample in the box. Overall a great value for the opportunity to try a variety of teas!" —wen.tea

    Get a pack of 42 from Amazon for $13.99.

    18. And a monogrammed mug with a beautiful floral design from Rifle Paper Co. to go with all that tea you just treated yourself to.


    Promising review: "These cups are exquisite. I bought three and will get more! 1. they look exactly like the photos. Colors are vivid and beautiful 2. gold lettering is thick and still subtle (you can see it if you want to and you can watch it disintegrate too. Super well done) 3. ceramic is solid yet not clunky. Excellent quality 4. I love a good British cuppa, especially if its made out of fine bone china. These are not, yet hold the heat equally well and are almost as tender on the lip. Totally in love :)" —LiselFrench

    Get it from Anthropologie for $14 (available in 26 styles).

    19. A set of hair clips to transform a failed updo into something super chic Kate Middleton would wear.


    I have SO many mornings where I fiddle with my hair, twisting and turning it, putting up, taking it down, all for naught. It's on these days that the only solution is to throw my hair in a bun and MOVE ON. But thanks to these minimalist hair clips I can now transform my last-ditch hair effort into something a bit more composed — classy, even! The set comes with 15 different designs, so you're sure to find a favorite.

    Promising review: "I wasn't expecting a lot because of how cheap these were, but they are so cute! They don't look cheap, and you get a lot of options. I love that there is a silver and gold version of each. Would definitely recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a 15-piece set from Amazon for $9.99.

    20. A cleaning pen, so all of your jewels (whether they're real or not) will be so sparkly everyone will wonder who you inherited them from.,

    This seemingly average little cleaning pen is filled with a high-performance formula that cleans jewelry like nothing I've ever experienced. It contains micro-fine cleansers, polishing agents, and a polymer that will make your gems so shiny they'll nearly blind you. I've used it on my diamond rings, but it also works wonders on my cubic zirconia earrings.

    Promising review: "The center stone of my ring (an oval white sapphire) has been cloudy since shortly after I got it. I have to use a lot of hand sanitizer at work, which gets under the stone. This product was easy to use. The little brush gets under the stone really well (much better than a toothbrush). My ring looks like new." —FintanCat

    Get it from Amazon for $7.83.

    a model wearing feathery pink socks

    Promising review: "Turns out I really hate wearing slippers; I go barefoot in the house all summer, but winter is too chilly for that, especially since I prefer to keep the heater on low, and wear a layer or two if necessary. So, icy feet... (Never wear shoes in the house.) These socks are perfect — I can wear them in the house all day and have warm toes. They’re comfy and they fit well. I have no idea how they’ll hold up, but so far, I love them!" —Katt13

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $14.90+ (available in 11 styles).

    23. A hydrating argan oil hair mask for refreshing your dry or damaged hair and making it as luscious as a Disney Princess'.


    Have you noticed your ends splitting or breaking off throughout the day? I'm going through that right now but simply don't have time to schedule a haircut. What's a girl to do? OH, right — use this hair mask! Its sole purpose is to repair, store, and strengthen weak, damaged, and over-processed hair, which in turn will help prevent more bad hair days.

    Promising review: "My hair is very thin and curly. The ends are damaged from heat and color, causing my hair to look even more unruly. I do oil treatments once a week and only wash my hair two to three times a week but NOTHING has made my hair feel like this product does. There is an immediate difference as soon as this product touches my hair. It leaves my hair feeling so silky, even after I rinse it out and dry my hair." —Maegan W.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    24. A strappy bralette and high-waisted underwear set that'll make you feel super luxurious, as only velvet and lace can.


    Promising review: "I purchased the eyelash lace velvet set in the color blue. It is a beautiful deep teal color and shockingly good quality for the price. I love the different style approach to a sexy little set and I can’t wait to wear it and either show it off or just enjoy it all by myself!" —WorkHardPlayHard

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes S–L and five styles).

    25. A lightweight, fast-absorbing cuticle oil made with grape seed, sesame, kukui, sunflower, and cupuaçu oils that'll change your at-home mani forever.

    the bottle of opi cuticle oil

    Promising review: "I’ve been using this oil almost every night for several months now and it works great. My cuticles used to be so dry and cracked from constant hand-washing (I’m an elementary school teacher, so I’m always scrubbing my hands!), but I’ve seen a huge improvement since I started using this oil." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    26. A designer-inspired coffee stencil you can use to create the over-the-top latte of your dreams — I can't even imagine how many likes you'll get on your inevitable Instagram post of it.

    a reviewer's room with twinkle lights hanging behind their bed

    If it were up to me, I would leave my Christmas lights up inside my home all year long. These twinkle lights are a great way to create that look without being overtly holiday-themed. Tinker Bell would certainly approve!

    Promising review: "I saw a few pictures online of fairy lights with sheer curtains and loved the look. These lights in particular are perfect for what I was looking for. It gives off a warm cozy glow, and really adds a nice touch of oomph to the room." —NG

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    28. Gold under-eye collagen masks you can use to treat your under-eye bags after a night you've *accidentally* stayed up past 3 a.m. researching Princess Diana conspiracy theories.


    Promising review: "These eye masks are absolutely amazing! I have hereditary dark circles under my eyes, as well as slight bags from being a mother of four. Eye creams do absolutely nothing for me, and I gave these a try just on a whim, not really expecting much. But they really work! The results aren't permanent, but I put these on for about an hour in the evening while I relax and watch TV, and my under eyes are much lighter and less puffy. I absolutely love these eye masks, and I will never be without them again." —Kate Johnson

    Get a pack of 12 pairs from Amazon for $12.99.

    29. A set of ceramic marbled coasters that'll show anyone who enters your home how put together you are — you won't find any water rings on these tables, baby!

    30. Clip-in synthetic hair extensions to create the luscious Kate Middleton-like locks you've always dreamt of with minimal effort.

    Promising review: "Okay, so I am very picky about hair extensions. I've spent hundreds of dollars on numerous sets, and have never been completely satisfied. UNTIL NOW! These are BY FAR my favorite — and for such an amazing price! If you're worried that this deal is too good to be true (because I was) then stop worrying! And buy these extensions. Also, I have very short hair and they still look great! They're very full and luscious. And you can straighten them! I'm very happy!" —Makenzie Long

    Trufflin is a Black woman-owned small business founded by a French woman with a family history in the truffle business and an Atlanta-based chef.

    Promising review: "This robe is luxurious and sexy! It is true to size. I ordered the black but, will be ordering another color. I have red, black, and purchased white for my upcoming wedding and for my bridesmaids. Great quality and true to size!" —n2000w

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 10 styles).

    33. And a face wash foamer you can use to make the cleanser you're already accustomed to feel extra fancy.

    The pink container with a pump top to fluff the cleanser and foamed up cleanser all around it

    Promising review: "This thing is the bomb. Does exactly what it advertises; makes a thick whipped cream/foam out of washes, making it economical as well as fun. It can soften harsh washes to make the concoction gentler on skin. It's also great for mixing washes if you have two or more you'd like to combine for different effects. And of course, a little goes a long, long way with this puppy. For the price, it's a steal. Definitely give it a try if you're not sure. It's a really cool device." —Knock Knock Me

    Get it from Amazon for $7.
