    1. A boba tea light because it'll stand out in your room and I know you're always looking for any excuse to treat yourself to bubble tea. Well, might as well get it in lamp form too. It's so realistic, the boba moves around inside!

    Urban Outfitters

    This is battery-powered so no messy wires to deal with.

    Get it from Colourpop for $12.

    4. Glossier Cloud Paint Blush that'll tint your skin with a bright, healthy flush of color that's sheer, blendable, and buildable. It's formulated with collagen and retains water so it visibly plumps and hydrates your skin with a dose of moisture!

    That's me above, wearing Cloud Paint in Dawn. Reviewers note that you only need a little bit, as it goes a long way, which is great because it means the tube will last you a long time. It's so seamless and hydrating that it almost feels like a moisturizer. It's also hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, paraben-free, fragrance-free, and cruelty-free.

    Reviewers note to size up!

    Promising review: "I love this swimsuit. I was hesitant because I'm not really a retro style kind of girl but this is so cute and I've never gotten so many compliments. Based on other reviews, I went two sizes up and it fits perfectly, very flattering. It also stays on well if you are actually swimming at the beach or pool! My only complaint is that I wear it so much it's already faded a little. But absolutely worth it and I would buy again and again!" —fabrinckie

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $39 (available in 10 colors).

    15. A cute tie-back tank top for extreme comfort while also making a colorful statement.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "I love the back with the little twisty tie! It makes this shirt original and flattering. A little peekaboo! I ordered a medium even though I usually take a small, but after reading the reviews this advice was right on. I may come back for more colors. I ordered the bright blue and the gray. This style is feminine and sweet even at my age of 64. Gosh am I that old?" —AGinPA
