Häagen-Dazs Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge Non-Dairy Ice Cream, price varies by store
Here at HG, we were lucky enough to taste-test some new products from Häagen-Dazs, and I was very intrigued by its new non-dairy collection, which includes flavors like Chocolate Salted Fudge Truffle, Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge, Mocha Chocolate Cookie, and Coconut Caramel. I was at first skeptical—non-dairy, I thought? But one spoonful and I was in heaven. I’m obsessed with the Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge flavor because it’s so decadent and rich, but without any dairy. I seriously had to check the label three times, because I thought I read it wrong and I was actually tasting the dairy kind. And I’m not being hyperbolic here! I thought for sure I would be able to tell the difference in taste, but it was just as smooth and indulgent. I’m officially hooked.
Olive & Cocoa “At First Blush” Crate, price varies by size
It’s been well documented that I am obsessed with the color pink, and so I love this “At First Blush” candy gift box from Olive & Cocoa, because it’s filled with my all-time favorite colored candy. Pink candy just tastes better, IMO. This crate comes filled with treats like pink popcorn, pink taffy, pink rock candy and other pink-colored delights. It’s clearly a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for the pink-lover in your social circle, but it also works as a special treat to yourself.
Emoji Face Masque, $9
I’m very into sheet masks, and I’ve been using them for years. But I’m a bit of a sheet mask snob, and I typically don’t love the “novelty” masks with silly faces on them because I find they don’t work as well as the more “serious” masks. But I’m obsessed with this Emoji Masque from Apollo Box, because it actually combines the best of both worlds: It’s super cute and silly, but it also WORKS. It reminded me of a high-end “serious” mask, but way more fun. I tried the heart-eyes mask (aka the “Love Mask”), which is made with roses and works on all skin types. Not only did it make a great Instagram story, but it also left my skin brightened and soft.
My Sister “Not Here to Please You” Pink Tank, $34
I want to wear this salmon pink muscle tee every day to serve as an important reminder: I’m not here to please you. So there. Check out My Sister’s site for more badass, feminist apparel. Their mission is to fight sex trafficking – and the company has raised over $121,000 since 2015 to help do so. I love brands with a cause, and this cause is a good one.
Origins Pore-Perfecting Cooling Primer with Willowherb, $32
Origins’ new primer is hydrating AND magically erases your pores, creating a smooth and even canvas before you smother it with foundation.
Michael Kors Gia Ballet Flat, $98.95
I want a pair of Chanel ballet flats. Badly. I’m not sure why, because they look almost identical to the Gap flats I already own, except they have the trademark double C and some variations are quilted. I’ve been obsessively checking Poshmark every day, hoping I can snag a neutral pair in my size for cheap, but so far I can’t seem to bite the bullet. $250 for a used pair of Chanel flats? I don’t know! Life is hard! Anyway, these Michael Kors ballet flats honestly come damn close to the look and feel and sophistication I’m going for, and they’re less than a hundred bucks. Should I do it, or should I splurge on some Chanel? That is the eternal question.
