    1. A light, soft duvet set fit for a queen — but at a plebeian-friendly price.

    Amazon, BuzzFeed / Emmy Favilla

    Perhaps it sounds a bit hyperbolic to describe a duvet cover as "life-changing," but dear reader, I implore you to consider how many hours of your life you spend nestled in bed. If you're lucky, it's at least a quarter to a third of your day. And so I've consistently made it my mission to ensure those hours are as pleasant and comfortable as they can possibly be — and I encourage you to do the same if living your best life is on the agenda. Made of satisfyingly soft brushed microfiber, this Mellanni duvet cover is the perfect light option for spring and summer weather. It has a button close, so you won't have to worry about zippers breaking or getting stuck after months of use, as well as ties to ensure your comforter stays securely on your bed throughout the night.

    The value of this set adds yet another layer to my case: At just $25 (for both the full/queen *and* king sizes, in all four colors!), you'd be hard-pressed to find a quality duvet cover that comes close to this price. Plus, it includes two pillowcases and two shams, to suit whatever camp you're in. Also, though: Did I mention that this thing is SO soft? On a warm, sticky night — or hell, even a cool, breezy night — the last thing you want is to awake from your REM cycle only to have a limb graze scratchy, stiff material. Wrap me up like a burrito, you glorious, buttery-soft duvet cover.

    I've long been a fan of the Mellanni brand, and its sheet sets have been a part of my life for the past few years. If you're unfamiliar, it's probably because it's not quite a household name, despite the staggering 53K+ reviews that its affordable bed linens, available in nearly every color under the sun, have garnered on Amazon. So, yeah, side note: Get your hands on these too! —Emmy Favilla

    Get the set from Amazon for $24.97 (available in full/queen or king/California king and four colors).

    2. A set of space-saving vacuum storage bags you seriously need if your closet is (like mine) slowly succumbing to Sweater Overload.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    WHY didn't I buy these vacuum storage bags sooner?? I've only put them into several posts, and scrolled through the before + after review photos a million times, thinking "man that would really help with my closet." But it wasn't until I gazed in horror at the volume of sweaters I need to somehow store in my overflowing closet before unpacking my summer clothes that I FINALLY hit "add to cart."

    I chose the large size (as opposed to the biggest size, called "jumbo") because it seemed easier to move and store — jumbo is probably perfect for bedding, duvets, etc! And just one large bag was plenty to store nine or ten *very* large winter sweaters — all collapsed down to a fraction of their size. And it was surprisingly effortless, too! I didn't feel like breaking out the vacuum, so I just used the included hand pump, and it took maybe three minutes max to pump out the air and shrink the bag before replacing the cap — easy peasy! And no danger of re-inflation. I am literally going to order another pack of five today — my closet game is forever changed!!! All I can say is thank you Maitland, for actually taking your own advice for once. —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in four sizes and variety packs).

    3. A Billie razor starter kit so you can kiss the pink tax goodbye and say hi to a smoother, better shave. Each razor cartridge has five blades encased in charcoal shave soap for a super-smooth glide even the most sensitive skin will love.

    BuzzFeed / Bek O'Connell, BuzzFeed / Natalie Brown

    Shaving is probably one of my least favorite things to do, but after discovering Billie, somehow it doesn’t seem so terrible anymore. The main issue I run into while shaving is having no place to store my razor (I don’t like resting my razor on surfaces that haven’t been disinfected). Billie razors come with a magnetic holder that you can stick anywhere, and it just makes the whole shaving process So. Much. Easier. I just pop the razor on the holder whenever I need to rinse off or take a break and I feel at ease knowing it stays clean and within reach. It’s also safer than leaving the razor on the tub rim, where it can easily slip down into the tub and cut my feet! Also, I’m not a very hairy person so I like to re-use my razors for as long as I can, but they would always get rusty within a couple of days. The blades on my Bille razor have stayed rust-free and sharp at least twice as long as regular ones (I do keep it on a wall right outside the shower so it can dry off properly). As for the razor itself, it’s probably the smoothest one I’ve ever used. It almost makes shaving feel like a luxurious experience. I just love it so much! —Yi Yang

    Get it from Billie for $9.

    4. A handy dandy phone stand if you're tired of picking up your device to unlock your phone and see if you really need to answer that text (or eight).

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer, Amazon

    I love my iPhone but I hate that I have to pick it up + point it at my face to unlock it. When the group texts come raining in during the work day, I'd like to be able to glance at them without taking the time to pick up, scroll through, and then putting it back down — my FOMO-y self needs to be sure the texts can wait until my next break for a reply! So I impulse bought this cute little phone stand on Amazon to solve my workday woes

    It has a sleek but pretty, not-too-pink champagne-y rose gold body, an adjustable stand (so you can position it to your height perfectly), and a hole in the back you can snake a cord through for easy charging. The ledge is wide enough to fit a fairly substantial case without worry, and it's a game-changer that I can just look at the screen to unlock my phone. Magic! Now I can keep those group text updates truly ~at a glance~ — without interrupting my flow until I take a break later. —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in three colors).

    5. A machine-washable microfiber duster that *actually* traps those pesky particles, rather than just flinging 'em around the room.

    BuzzFeed / Yi Yang

    Do you dust? Because I don't! I find that when I dust, the particles just fly into the air, and it seems like I'm not cleaning at all. Well, everything changed when I bought the OXO microfiber hand duster. Dust and dirt stick to this thing like a magnet — it's both gross and satisfying to see. The best part is, the cloth is removable and machine-washable so it's clean and ready to be used for next time. It's a small thing, but my apartment feels so much cleaner with this duster around! —Yi Yang

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    6. A tube of Glossier's Lip Vinyl (a fancy name for their cream lipstick–gloss hybrid) that may just become your new favorite lip color.

    Delia Cai

    If your first reaction to the words "lip vinyl" is "dafuq is lip vinyl," you are not alone. When the Glossier Play collection dropped as Glossier's ~fun cool younger sis~ makeup line, I was pretty skeptical, especially since most of the products just seemed like very normal makeup things (a scientific term popularized by non-beauty writers like moi) except with these extremely extra descriptors like "multigrade paillettes" and yes, "lip vinyl." Like, guys. It looks like lipstick. Isn't it just lipstick? Except then I tried it, and guys. I was mistaken. It is NOT just lipstick.

    Once you get past this weird nonsense where you have to click the vinylic lip a few times, like a pen, to get it going, it goes onto your lips so smoothly that you forget all of your worries and fears and general life traumas. And then — and I cannot emphasize this enough — it does not get sticky, it does not bleed, it does not leave your lips dry and crumbly, and it stays on until you eat like a giant, messy arepa for lunch. The vinylic lip has this consistency that's somewhere between that of a gloss and a creamy lipstick (you might say it's vinyl-ish!), and it's honestly a borderline sensual experience to reapply. I got mine in Disco, which is Glossier speak for orangey-red, and I love it so much more than any other lip product I've ever used. —Delia Cai

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in six shades).

    7. A lightweight, eco-friendly cork yoga mat that's naturally anti-microbial to resist mold, mildew, and that post–hot yoga stink.

    42 Birds

    I love hot yoga, but classes usually end with me slipping on a mat. I tried the non-slip mats and even those non-slip towels but then luckily discovered the 42 Birds Cork Yoga Mat. This mat is made of cork, is super lightweight, no slip, nice cushion and has the added bonus of being eco-friendly. I fell in love with the product and the company once I learned they not only had amazing products but donate a portion of their revenue to preserving our planet. They also have a Cork Massage Roller that I admittedly splurged for, but hey, it was for the environment. —Elyssa Byck

    Get it from 42 Birds for $99.99.
