Unique Design Animal Coasters, $8.98

Apollo Box

Do we REALLY need coasters? I definitely don’t, because my coffee table is made of glass and my kitchen table was like 75 bucks from Ikea and like, who cares, BUT this coaster is just too cute not to have! Plus, it makes you really look like you have your shit together when friends come over for cocktails or tea.

Mother Long Sleeve Frenchie Crop Fray, $268

Mother Denim

This white long-sleeve from Mother makes me think of summer and vacation. I can smell the coconut sunscreen if I really, really think hard about it.

Homesick Southern California Candle, $29.95


This candle smells like home. No, literally, it’s made to smell like everything that should remind you about your homestate. This California candle (technically I’m a transplant from Minnesota, but whatever) smells like oranges, the ocean, and aloe. Spot on.

KFC Scratch & Sniff Valentine’s Day Cards, available at participating KFC restaurants while supplies last


I’m obsessed with everything about these scratch & sniff Valentine’s Day cards from KFC. They are just killing it with the puns. “I fell in love the moment I slaw you”?!? Amazing. And it gets even better—scratch the back for a fragrant whiff of fried chicken. Select KFC U.S. restaurants are giving these finger licking good Valentine’s away for free with the purchase of a $10 Chicken Share beginning February 12th while supplies last. After KFC announced its newest celebrity colonel is the one and only Reba McEntire, I thought they couldn’t outdo themselves—and yet they did it again. KFC just really gets me. 

Hello Molly Sun Comes Up Yellow Dress, $54.20

Hello Molly

This perfect little dress from Hello Molly makes me feel like I’m walking on sunshine. It’s just the happiest color, and it’s figure-flattering in every way. It’s perfect with flat sandals and beach waves for a casual rosé Saturday afternoon or with heels and a sleek updo for fancier feels.

BioClarity Hydrate Skin Smoothie, $19.95


My skin has been super uneven lately, and so I’ve had to give it some extra attention. I recently discovered BioClarity’s Hydrate Skin Smoothie, which is extra gentle on my textbook sensitive skin. I’m really into it because of the weightless formula. I don’t like when I have to smear in my moisturizer for a long time until it disappears—never a good sign. But this baby glides on like a dream and seeps in immediately.
