    Promising review: "Love the recipes and the variety: simple, complex, sweet, tart, bitter etc. The literary puns were spot-on, and I liked the idea that the drink could match both the themes at work in the story, and sometimes even the literary criticism surrounding the novel.

    There are two things that I really love: popcorn and the Jonas Brothers. So when I got the chance to try out Rob's Popcorn, I was super excited. It is SO good. According to the ingredient list, it contains olive oil, sugar, salt, onion and garlic powder, red bell pepper, and carrot, but I think they also sprinkled in some sort of magic fairy dust because it's basically impossible to not eat an entire bag in one sitting. It's the perfect mix of sweet and savory (perfect for anyone who is incredibly indecisive like me) and if you're also a Jonas Brothers fan, you're gonna want to try this ASAP.  

    Not to mention, it's GMO- and gluten-free AND vegan!

    Get it from Walmart for $3.98

    You can also get a pack of four from the Rob's Popcorn website for $23.99

    19. A wearable nail polish holder so you can easily give yourself a fresh mani anywhere at home minus the risk of spilling. Suddenly painting my nails a dark color while sitting on a white couch feels like a beautiful possibility.

    Be sure to check out Tweexy wearable nail polish holder write-up!

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? Definitely helps with DIY nail projects. When I had no idea this polish holder existed, I tried to find creative ways to hold my polish, so that it would be in a convenient spot. However, I never found that really worked for me, or felt comfortable. This holder holds all of my nail polishes easily and is very comfortable to wear. I love that the finger holes on the bottom are not enclosed so you can just pull the holder off without ruining your paint job. Just one tip: move the holder to your pointer finger when doing your thumb." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 20 colors).

    20. A liquid latex guard for simply peeling off nail polish remnants you accidentally get on your skin rather than your nail. It doesn't matter how in the zone I am when I paint my nails, I ALWAYS manage to paint a little bit off my nail at some point.

    Promising review: "If you do nail art or want to perfect your nail polishing skills, this is the product for you. Easy to use, dries sparkly so you know it’s dry, easy peel-off in one piece, and a clean finish. I do a lot of nail art and stamping. Some of the stamping polishes are really hard to get off the cuticle but with this, they come off cleanly. Helps when I do my toes too. If I get a little messy, the mess comes off with the latex. You can also switch the brush so you don’t waste the bottle when the brush gets clumpy." —Diannah S.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    Promising review: "When you are in the market for chip clips why not buy adorable ones? These were a very reasonable price and I was squealing with delight when I opened them (because they are so cute). They're sort of small, but for things like Milano cookies and plastic bags, they seem to work well." —Danielle
